Is RU Affiliates a scam or a pyramid scheme?

Yes 100%. RU Affiliates is definitely a scam and you should NOT get involved.

Stay as far away as you possibly can because RU Affiliates is now illegal in the Philippines because it is unlicensed and unregulated.

RU Affiliates is a pyramid scheme and now I will show you why.

[alert-note]Wikipedia‘s definition of a pyramid scheme:


A pyramid scheme (commonly known as pyramid scams) is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme.[/alert-note]

The whole RU Affiliates training is set up to teach you how to promote RU Affiliates only, for this reason I have no choice but to say it is a pyramid scheme.

But it is not just a pyramid scheme, it is an illegal pyramid scheme in the eyes of the Filipino government…

On the 7th November 2017 the Philippines Securities and Exchange Commission has said anyone who is found promoting or recruiting people into the RU Affiliates program will be fined P5,000,000 and/or face 21 years in prison.
