When we find ourselves looking to make money online we come across quite a variety of schemes and what seems like very little legit opportunities.
I came across Automation Riches one day and I wondered if the name says it all? Is Automation Riches a scam? It sounds like it might be, due to the name.
According to them they “take the guesswork out of earning a living from the comfort of your home – using tried and tested principles”.
If you have any experience or knowledge online, then you know that there isn’t an automatic or automated system when it comes to making money online.
I do not suggest that you join without reading the rest of this information that I am providing. I know there is a lot of information here, but it just may save you time and money.

Cost to join: See below
There are 8 levels of membership that you can purchase. Keep in mind, that you only get a commission if your referral purchases the same level of membership as you. If they purchase a higher level membership, then your sponsor or the next person in line will receive the commission.
- Level 1: $500 plus $300 admin fee
- Level 2: $1000 plus $500 admin fee
- Level 3: $2000 plus $700 admin fee
- Level 4: $3000 plus $900 admin fee
- Level 5: $5000 plus $1200 admin fee
- Level 6: $10,000 plus $1800 admin fee
- Level 7: $15,000 plus $2200 admin fee
- Level 8: $20,000 plus $2400 admin fee
Starting from level 2, you will receive commissions for referrals who sign up for the previous level. Ex. If you bought the level 2 membership and you have a referral who bought the level 2 membership and another referral bought a level 1 membership, you will receive a total of $1500. The commission for level 1 and the commission for level 2.
Before I break down the what is included in each of the packages, i want you to know that these are media package. They are information put together that they have gotten from interviewing others that are in marketing and internet business.
So basically, the owner hasn’t come up with a proven system that will TEACH you, they have only come up with a way to take your money and convince you to do the same to others.
Now, first of all, why do we need this? So that it makes us feel as though we are buying into a legit work from home business? I mean, we are told that all we have to do is refer others to the program.
Or is it just so that they can say that we are paying for actual training that will also help us in our own online business? The package that you buy will be available for you do download after the purchase.
If there is no actual product, or training that can be used outside of their program, then why would anyone pay that kind of money for it?
Eventually, this circle that they are creating that continues to go in a circle, will eventually break. Because others are going to catch on and will stop paying for nonsense. I bet this one will be another one that gets caught by the FTC or they change their name before they are caught, just like the rest.

I know it looks like you might be getting a bargain if you pay the outrageous price for a product. Like I said earlier, this isn’t even their own production.
This is from what they gathered up from some of “the greatest modern day minds” Do they have permission to use what they were told in these interviews to create these products?
I am still confused of all the “training” material that you will receive. Is it only to show you all the different ways to promote their product so that you get many referrals?
Their “about us” states that they teach entrepreneurs how to start and grow profitable businesses. Notice how they don’t say that they teach entrepreneurs how to start and build “their own” profitable businesses?
I would hope that even after paying the very expensive price for even the level one product, that you will at least learn strategies that you can use for when you do decide to create your own online business.
How It Works
This system is supposed to be proven, legal and ethical. They claim you can earn $1000 a day or more with their turnkey automation sales machine. You don’t even have to market their products. Hmm. How do you get your referrals then?
They take care of everything. It is hands off for you? All you do is refer people to their website. They will send out postcards with your referral ID number on them.
When that person goes to the website and puts in your ID, and join, you get the commission
Sort of sounds like yet another system that is similar to a recent company that was shut down. So, why do you need to buy their products? I mean, if you don’t have to so anything except pay for the product, why do you need their training?
Can you use the training to start your own business later? if you are making as much as they claim you can, why would anyone want to put in the work to create their own business and risk failure or loss of income?

When you research a program you look for red flags. These are marketing strategies they have found to work. It is actually LIES, to be blunt.
They make you think they are legit by using photos saying they were featured on well know news stations or magazines etc.
If you get research programs enough, you will even see familiar faces that appear to be giving testimonies for more than one program.
This program has displayed the red flags that I just spoke of, plus others. Like “earn money while you sleep” as well as the amount of money they say you can earn.
Another red flag is the “limited time offer”. Automation Riches says that if you join now, you will receive the free post card bonus. But there is only 48 hours left for you to claim your bonus.
I have proof that this bonus has been going on for much longer than 48 hours. I have worked on this post for 3 days and the timer is still there and was back at 47:55.
You can see the date that I have posted this article. I am sure that the 48 hours will have ended a couple of times by the time you are reading this. So, go ahead and click on the website URL that I provided above. Is the post card sales pitch still available? I knew it would be.
Now that you are on the website, scroll down and you will see that they advise you to take action now as the free postcard mailing will expire permanently in 48 hours. How much time is left on the counter when you reached the page?
I am willing to bet that the timer is still there and it probably read 47:59. This post took me 4 days to complete. This is not a limited time offer. It really isn’t nice to lie.
How Does The Pay Work
I mentioned earlier that when you have a referral that pays for a product, then you get a commission as long as they bought the same product as you, or a product of LESSER value. Once you get your first sale the residual income features starts.
On the 1Up residual income feature means that anyone that enrolls under you, will have to pass up their first commission to you. I bet they will be a little upset and so will you on your first commission. Seems a little over the top don’t you think?
Oh it gets better. So everyone who signs up under you (unless they buy a higher priced product than you) have to give you their first commission, and each of their referrals have to do the same. It just keeps going.
So maybe you don’t see a problem with that one? So let’s move on to the Overrides feature. This is the feature where if your referral, or anyone under you, upgrades to a higher priced product than you did, then you don’t get the commission.
It goes past you to your sponsor, and so on, until it reaches the next qualified person on your upline who purchased that product or a higher priced product.
So let’s say that someone under you get a person who signs up under them, and they didn’t get the commission because it was a higher priced product than what they had.
That person gets upset about it and decides that they will by a higher priced product, then you get that commission (if you have bought the same level of product or higher). What kind of pyramid scheme is this?
Now, this is where the Upgrades feature comes in. When someone under you decides to upgrade, then you get the difference of the price as a commission. I am getting dizzy with this. Are you?
Please don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a great opportunity for you. It isn’t. Remember, programs like this play on your emotions and vulnerability.
I am also going to give you the link to their Question and Answer page. Not so that you fall for their PITCH, but so that you see for yourself how they say you need to do NOTHING and rake in the money.
What Others Are Saying
There are complaints about people who have been scammed by this business on a few different websites. Each of them say they were contacted by or told to contact 3 different women.
The complaints were the same. They paid the money, but did not receive anything in return, nor did they make any money. Granted, the post cards aren’t sent directly to you. THEY, take care of adding your referral I.D. and mailing them out,
A legit business normally has one address if you need to contact them and one phone number with extensions if need be.
There were a couple of different addresses as well as different names and numbers. Granted a business has employees, but they don’t give out their personal address or phones numbers except with certain types of business. This isn’t that type.
There isn’t anything at that address. However, The BBB popped up with an alert right under the results of the address search.
I had a great feeling as this had confirmed my suspicions. I checked out what they had listed.
I will provide you the link. I really think you should check it out if you are still considering joining this program.
The Better Business Bureau has been trying to contact Automation Riches. They also have information that will benefit you greatly.
By reading the additional information, you will also learn how to protect yourself from common scams like this one.
BBB states that they have received numerous inquiries regarding this company’s advertised claim. Check out BBB on Automation Riches here.
I honestly don’t believe in this type of program, nor do I think you will make money from it. You are told that ALL you will have to do, is refer people to their website.
That’s it, Then why is there a need for such HIGH TICKET products that come from other peoples strategies? Sure, I am all for someone else doing the research and filling me in.
BUT, since they have displayed the same signs of the other “get-rich-quick” schemes as well as “done for you” automation, would you really trust the information that they have gathered? More importantly, would you pay that much for it?
There are legit work from home opportunities out there. Ones that aren’t giving you false hope and have learned from their own journey to success.
Ones that teach you how to build your own REAL business based on what has worked. They even walk you through the process step by step.
It isn’t done for you. No one can say that it is. It is just a lure to get you in their grasp. Ask anyone who is successful online and that is legit.
They worked hard to get where they are and they did it themselves. Trial and error, yet they kept at it. They learned the right way to build their business.
Not everyone is out for themselves and there are some that can be trusted. I don’t just create this information to make my favorite program look good.
I do this to STOP you from getting scammed and falling into the wrong hands. I have been there before. I swore that if I were to ever find a legitimate company I would help others to do the same and let them know of the scams and the ones I think are dishonest.
Whether you check out my number one FAVORITE or you choose not to. I still do this for you and I hope that my information will at least get you to really think about it before joining Automation Riches.
I do not see this as a legit work from home opportunity at all. If you have had experience with them or others like them, please let me know down below.
Do you know of an opportunity that you would like me to review for you? Leave it down below and I would be more than willing to do it. That is what I am here for. You.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please leave them down below. I love hearing what you think and I enjoy responding.
Thank you and take care.
Wishing you the best in all you do
