Dubli - a scam or a new way to make money?





I just had a presentation of Dubli by a close friend that has tipped in $3000 into the system. I feel sick for her because I know this is going to end in tears.

Here are just some of the reasons that come to mind:

• Traffic numbers to the site are very low and declining.
• Product offerings are extremely low.
• User experience is confusing.
• No ability to rate the buying experience on the site.
• Returns policy is hidden.
• Dubli online reputation management is glaring.
• The offering is a sick combination of MLM & gambling – it is not ecommerce.

They made claims about signing up 400 or so Australian retailers for the Dubli Shopping Mall. This is not an online shopping mall it is a landing page for an affiliate program. All Dubli has delivered is a deal for links with clixgalore.com.au, which anyone can do.

People there are no free lunches! Let me put this in simple terms:
If something costs $100 and sells for $50 then somebody loses – end of story. I do understand about the points and credits system however think about this – When people lose they leave. This is MLM at its worst.

Run for the hills!

As for the people at the top of the pyramid - you should be locked up!

This type of business muddies the water for legitimate online business.
Bring on the SEC!

If anyone from Dubli would like to debate my findings please feel free to post on this blog.
