Not at all! People are making great savings and earning their incomes with Karatbars in an honest way. The Karatbars system delivers the physical gold, incomes and commissions as promised within its superbly programmed parameters. If some people's input and strategy in the affiliate program are way under par to achieve the profits they wished, one musn't fault Karatbars to be a scam.
A pyramid scheme is a connotation to businesses where the top few are making all the money at the cost of the bottom majority. If that's the definition then Karatbars is not a pyramid scheme, because many folks in the downline are known to make more money than their upline. The income and commissions are not based on your top or bottom position in the group but soley rely on each person's productivity. Here are two curious videos that explain it well:
The inflated currencies in our economy show the evidence that paper money (or electronic money & coins) is losing its value. Did you know that the same amount of gold that could purchase a car valued at over $800 in the 1930's can still purchase a car worth 30,000 today! But you'll need 37.5 times more money to buy a car today than you did in the 30's.
The value of Gold has been fluctuating of late, and that is known to be controlled artificially by the Fed. But it is a fact that we now live in a 'precious metals cycle' when measured according to the recurring patterns of 'wealth cycles'. if you measured the value of Gold over a period of 15 years or more, then you'll see that although it seems fluctuating, there is indeed an impressive exponential growth curve for gold. This proves that we are indeed in a precious metals boom era. Hence the manipulation to keep gold under-valued for the moment. But it is only a matter of time before gold achieves its real worth in a hyper-inflated economy, which is inevitable because the Fed is dependant on gold's real value to be able to balance the national budget. Watch this video that has more details:
It is a huge mistake to view gold as an investment like stocks and bonds. Gold is as good as currency now as it has always been in history. It is a means for investment and not an investment per say. Investments pay either interest or dividends. Gold is money just as surely as the paper currency in your wallet. Do you obtain paper money with the hope of receiving interest or a dividend? No, and neither should you obtain gold as an investment. For six thousand years, gold has been insuring and protecting wealth against the inevitable demise of all fiat currencies. That is why you by gold, whether or not it is falling in price at any current time.
In the unlikely event that Karatbars International does close down, as sad as we'd all be but there is nothing to worry about concerning your commissions or your gold. As long as the business is ongoing, you have access to all your money that you've earned via the eWallet system that you may transfer at all times to your personal accounts or through your pre-paid MasterCard. As for the gold, if it is in storage, then it is safe in an independant institution, a society called Prosegur in Neu-Isenburg in Germany and not in the Karatbars factory. One strategy for security recommended by certain affiliates is to have certain stocks of gold purchases (i.e. when 5 purchases of 5 gram bars are reached) to be delivered directly to one's home. Much expenses on delivery prices are saved this way.
He/she can sell their gold (the 1 gram a week) at the buyback rate at any time whether it's 6 months or 3 years later, etc. As for the investment portion of his package, which also contains gold in grams for personal use, he can also recover the investment by cashing in as in selling it back to Karatbars in Germany. The beauty of investing in Karatbars is that you are merely exchanging your cash for gold that can be sold back to redeem the cash at the buy back price at any time. When doing a purchase plan of 1 gram a week or 4 grams a month it's always good to store it with the company so that if you need to cash in, it can be sold straight away and the funds will be put on your debit card in 24 hrs…
Yes, it can....
Yes, of course! You may join as a free affiliate member with customers below you that purchase gold from Karatbars, for which you will earn the unilevel bonus commissions. However, by not purchasing a package you will be missing out on the dual system commissions that are unlocked thereby.
Not at all! Unlike in MLM companies, at Karatbars there are no recurring charges placed on you as condition to earn from the compensation plan. If you bought a package to unlock the additional bonus, then it was a one-time payment for a life-time benefit. However, most of the affiliates at Karatbars purchase gold every month since one of the purposes of affiliating with Karatbars is to create a savings with physical gold bars that secure their finances. Hence, the sooner one begins saving, the more gold one will possess.
You may choose to use the pre-paid Karatbars MasterCard® (debit card) to load your unlimited amounts of commission or you may choose to use the eWallet system to transfer your commissions to your personal credit card, debit card, bank account or other withdrawal options.
The moment you make a commission of $35.00 you will be sent your Karatbars MasterCard®, which you may use anywhere the MasterCard is accepted.

If you watch the video closely, it indicates in theory that each month, you sign up two new members for a period of 12 weeks. So that means, if this is done according to a perfect plan, then it will be 12 levels deep, with each new member bringing in two new referrals.
