What is Empowr? Is it a scam?

I am sure you have tonnes of questions relating to Empowr. Trust me, I do too. My aim of this article is to voice my opinion, and to help people understand what Empowr really is.

Empowr is the new name for Fanbox, and if you do not know what Fanbox is, you should check it out here. It explains the history of what Empowr truly is.

Empowr is an upgraded version of Fanbox, with a nicer looking user interface, new features, but the same old tricks. In general, Empowr is just like any other social network (Facebook, Google Plus, etc), but the main difference is that the purpose of Empowr is driven by money, while the purpose of other social media platforms is driven by social value.

The main idea of Empowr is to allow people with similar interest to congregate, and to earn money sharing things that are relevant, however, the way you are taught to use Empowr opposes the purpose of the program . So, what exactly is Empowr for?

As I went through the Empowr’s user interface, more question marks popping up. One of the most puzzling questions that I have for Empowr is that there is no clear guide as to how much you can earn from posting and sharing. Wouldn’t you be curious to know how much you can earn for each post or each share?

A few days after signing up with Empowr, I received an email and was told that I made $4.28 without performing any tasks, so how exactly did I make the money? Is it just some random number that is plucked from the sky?

One thing for sure is that you have to pay money to Empowr in order to cash out. So is it really worth it? I will discuss this below.

How this program helped me and thousands of people make a Life Changing income online. Find out how you can too!

How do Empowr make money?

In other words, you pay money to make money. Does it make sense to you?

Here’s how it really works:

  1. In order to cash out, you have to provide either your credit card details or a PayPal account, and when you provide your payment details, you have to agree to this:empowr-auto-billing
  2. Without you knowing, when you post something on Empowr, you automatically use their Ad Credits. If you have provided your payment details and have accepted to the above terms, you will automatically be charged on your credit card or your PayPal account if you use more than $2 worth of advertising fee. Remember, this advertising fee is levied each time you perform an activity on Empowr, moreover, you will be charged a 2.9% ad platform fee on a monthly basis.
  3. Any earnings that you make from Empowr takes 90 days (3 months) to mature, but it takes you a few seconds to pay their advertising fees. Does it make sense to you? Why you can’t cash out immediately if you have paid their advertising fee?

I posted a question to my “Success Coach” 3 days ago, but I did not receive a reply.

My question was, “how much exactly do I earn from each share and each post?”.

I guess nobody can answer this question except for the creators of Empowr. Wouldn’t it be weird to do so many things on Empowr, and not knowing exactly how much you make from each activity?

Empowr claims that this:

The company’s patented platform aims to provide economic opportunities for its citizens and return 97 percent of company revenues to them.”

Technically, Empowr is earning money from its citizens (YOU) if they pay into the program.

If you take an overview of this program, it is basically a transfer of wealth from one person (the one who made a loss) to another (the one who profited), and the program is an intermediary which charges you a fee for using its advertising platform.

So what purpose does Empowr serve? In addition, how would you know that 97% of its revenue is returned to its citizens?

Let me ask you a simple question, “What is the main purpose of advertisement?” It is to promote your products or services right? In Empowr, you are advertising even if you do not have a product or service, does it make sense?

Facebook has the advertisement function that Empowr has, the only difference is that Facebook earns money (Advertising fee) from people who truly has a product or service, but Empowr earns from its citizens even if they do not have a product or service to promote.

Real User Experience



These are screenshots from Empowr’s Facebook wall.

Empowr’s Mission is to help Poverty?

In my opinion, if a company really wants to help poverty, would it ask you to pay money before being able to cash out? Once they get hold of your credit card or PayPal details, it is hard to say if you will make more money than what you spend. As you already know, you might be charged a fee without you knowing.

People living in poverty may not even have a computer to begin with. And if they have a computer, will they understand how Empowr works? Will they truly make money from the program?

It is said that Empowr supports 82 charitable causes, I would like to know what causes are they supporting.

Is Making Money Online Really Possible? Discover the Truth!

Buying and Selling on Empowr?

Empowr has a function that allows you to trade items (products or services) with your Empowr Network. This function is called the “Marketplace”. It works like eBay if you are buying or selling products, and it works like if you are providing or engaging a service, services like Data Entry,etc.

Well, you know eBay has gone through many hoops to ensure that their sellers deliver their products as promised, and any disputes will be handled by eBay themselves.

eBay even guarantees this:

“In some cases when we determine the seller was not responsible, we may refund the buyer at our own expense.”

You can check out eBay’s Buyer Protection here.

Whilst Empowr said this:


Sure, Empowr ensures that its sellers deliver their products by providing a buyer’s protection feature, which is none other than a mere rating function. The question is, “Is it enough?”.

The only dispute resolution your can get is through the success coaches, but the problem is, are the success coaches trained enough to handle such disputes? For all you know, the success coaches are just citizens of Empowr, untrained to handle disputes.

So if you ask me if I will ever buy anything from Empowr, my answer is NO.

The Social Value in Empowr…

Do you know the reason for why Social Media exist? It exists for people to connect with each other, and to share interests.

I am sure the main reason to join Empowr, for most members, is to make money, and to make money from Empowr, you have to share or post stuff. Instinctively, you will start sharing or posting mindless things on Empowr just so that you get an opportunity to make money from it.

So, what is the social value of Empowr? Please share your views in the comments section below this review.

When you use Facebook, and you post stuff like your personal photos or videos, and you hope that your friends and family will see it, like it or maybe leave a comment. This creates social value, and it improves your relationship with your friends and family.

What happens in Empowr is totally opposite. The main drive for you to “post”, “share” or “like” stuff on Empowr is money, and not to connect with others. In my opinion, this social platform is fundamentally wrong. Just to give you an example, someone has posted a question on Empowr:


It has gotten 34 “Likes” in 3 hours, but no one is sharing their experiences or posting any comments. I feel this question is relevant to the program and it creates social value if someone responds to it. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Fake Testimonials?



I tried to find “Nathan Lee” and “Serena Villanueva” in other social media platforms and I couldn’t find them. If you find them, please, help to share.

Daily Earnings Statement?

Have you been receiving “Daily Earnings Statement” in your email from Empowr? I bet you do, tonnes of it. As you probably know, these earnings can only be cashed out if you provide your credit card details or your PayPal account.

Furthermore, you have to consider the amount of money you have spent unknowingly to achieve the said earnings. For me, as you can see I made $9.39 on February 2016 (picture below), and I have checked my Ad Credit balance and it shows that I have utilized $8.91 of advertisement fees, which means my net earnings is $0.48. On top of that, in order to cash out, I still have to pay 2.9% Ad platform fee on a monthly basis, so what am I left with?

The big joke is that I still have to wait for 90 days (3 months) in order to cash out that minute earnings.


My 2 cents on Empowr

Empowr is a complicated system that not many will understand. Some might even lose money using Empowr. In order to truly understand how Empowr charges its fees, you need to read all the terms and condition carefully before you agree to it.

In my opinion, I feel that the purpose Empowr is fundamentally wrong as it do not provide social value to its citizens. Fees should be charged to advertisers and not to its citizens. If Empowr truly takes care of your interest, shouldn’t they make money from its advertisers and return 97% of the profits to you, rather than charging you a fee for whatever you are posting?

I joined empowr in October 2017. it was fun initially. then they insisted on entering my Paypal details, I became alert. Since I did not give those details, I never got a chance to spin the wheels for higher money. then one day, they downgraded me. by then I was inactive. at that point in time, I had an accumulated earning of nearly $16500 (Lol 😉 ). I had to spend that on upgrades. Those upgrades were just a change in color of the ball next to your profile pic.

their marketplace is the most pathetic place you can find anywhere on earth. I don’t know if anything ever gets delivered. For imaginary money, you can buy imaginary goods and services which may get delivered in your imagination!!! That is empowr.

Then they came out with the concept of empowr coins. they even claim they were the first ones to start the cryptocurrency. I think we need to Ripley’s Believe it or not! When the coins introduced, earnings dropped drastically. then there was a hype created around the coin and the highest price I had ever seen was around $1. I never participated in their bidding process. I knew they will scam. But the moment value of their coin started to tank, they wanted the citizens to participate and prop up the price of their coin. for that you will get more coins! what a stupidity? Everybody is dumping EMPR coins. Current Market price is at $0.000000002. Bitcoin calculation can go up to 8 digits after the decimal. But this thing has gone to the 10th digit. If theirs is really a good currency, then it is better to buy it from any of those crypto exchanges. for $1, you will get around 50 Million EMPR coins. so why struggle at website, wasting time and energy. I have closed by account. No more wasting my precious time.

and today , they posting an update.

in order to cashout empowr coin, member should giving their “private keys” of ethereum address.

First of all i’m just an empowr user like you and not more than that but what I think most of the people here are using empowr for a week or month and start judging it. I am a empowr user for more than a year, and here is my 2 cent knowledge.

Q. I sign up empowr, not did a single thing and now my balance is over $20 lol?

A. When you sign up, a welcome post is posting on your behalf, so whoever like or comment on it automatically become your earning over the lifetime.

Q. I have a coins in my account for more than a year and still can’t cash out?

A. As you know you have to pay subscription fee, and it will be deduct from your recent earning, so your earning today should be available till 3 month later to get matured and not used in subscription.

Q. my money got deduct from my paypal, for ad fees?

A. Empwr is not for quick cash, but fall prey for instant cash out and never link your paypal and use ad credit, you will be charges sooner or later. although it might affect on your earning, but it is better to be safe side.

    Jack Cao - Reply

    Hey Dravid,

    Did you ever cashed out? That’s my question, hope that you can answer.

    Also, were you able to cash out USD, not some unverified “coins”.

When FanBox was in existence we got some benefits a few cash out a couple of times. Empwr turned to be a big scam. I went through several comments on this page every one has voiced the same thing. It’s true with all the members except for May Ram. Those success coaches are helpless and clueless. They play the same tune, what was being taught. Few mentioned here their pre coins have disappeared , yes its the same case with me too. The management is worried only about protecting your account by giving authorization to the authorities to access your paypal account or credit card account. I don’t think anyone would be able to cash out any money any day. Even I had been a SC before. Now the system is highly complicated. Think well before you leap.

    11-6-2018: I have had $3,500 of market place $$ go poof back June 2017 when they were still $ based. Others have had their accounts deleted when they asked for the money they were supposed to be paid for market place items they bought and sent out.
    Then there are the bogus $100 and $250 cc and pp charges that don’t show upon your empower balance sheet. Y can get that back by going through the pp claim procedure. Or used to anyway.
    Now May Ram has been moved to head the outside merchant deals made with store owners to use the EMPR coin that was PUMPED up to $8 by empowr and then DUMPED and now worth only .02 cent each. She was head of conning success couch program.

I spent my human effort for 3 hrs a day for 500 days and above, I spent out of my pocket US$3755 on their marketplace and subscriptions, I spent for electric bill about 1500 hrs for my desktop computer. But I never received a single penny from Empowr. They (Founders, President, Coaches) are purely cheats trying to foolish people and trying to change the meaning of the word democracy as slavery and sycophant. Moreover simply they will suspend your account without any notice and information then you will not get any reply from them at all the sources. I got suspended for asking the truths and I lost all my money and efforts of 500+ days. After suspension you will be joker of spending everything at Empowr. This is my promising words and 100% practically experimented result. NEVER trade their cryptocurrency (EMPR) they are manipulating by fixing the price of trading with the range. Empowr is PURELY cheating at all points.

I have recently joined and first thought is that it was an easy earning platform. Posted and liked a bunch of posts and earned precoins and coins. A few days ago, I tried cashing out. I was able to cash out using ether wallet. I have now balance in my ether wallet with empower coins. However, I do not know where to go to after. Any information on how to use this empower coins in ether wallet, please email me.


    Jack Cao - Reply

    Hi Christian,

    I’m afraid to tell you that there might not be any use of Empowr coins.

    In order for any Cryptocurrencies to have value, it has to be utilized or used in some way. With Empowr coins, my guess is that you can only use them towards the “services” that Empowr provides.

    Other than that, I don’t think that there is much or any demand for the Empowr coins, and if you try to convert it to cash, I don’t think you will see much value.

Hey Jack. I started empowr a little more than a year ago. So far I have not spent or been charged a single penny. However, I also haven’t tried cashing out yet. I am now a Purple Star and all from just posting statuses daily. I am still in the neutral, not fully believing or distrusting the site. But I do want to solve this mystery for everyone else wondering if cashing out is possible. I honestly think I figured something out. I’ll keep at it and I’ll let you know how it goes! Feel free to email me, I’ll do my best to reply. I’ll also be immensely glad to know I am working with a real person on this case.

My empowr account went over $1200 in value and it was over 365 days in age. I set it up to pay the $50 per month for a few months with my PayPal account to see if I could get some of this $1200; I was never eligible to cash out any amount of money because it was always at zero for cash out even though most of the balance was there over 1 year. After seeing this for sure I knew it was a scam. I complained to PayPal and got most of my money back. I would take notice of the daily email messages and my balance eventually went to over $3000 and I checked again to see if I could get any of the money; still zero was eligible for withdrawal. Now on Aug. 21, 2018 my account is at $2.61. I have not looked at it on over one year and will need to look at all the emails to see what occurred during that time.

Hi Jack,
I have read many comments of empowr members on your site and it is bad and indeed alarming. I am new to the program but with this information I think I have to be more careful about everything in the empowr platform. However, I will like if you can find out if Sunita Rose Director of Policy is one of empowr advisor as listed here: (link removed) and if indeed she was, you might get more information about empowr from her. Please if you do, try let me know.

It’s definitely a scam as far as I’m concerned. I joined to help the poor (as advertised). I accumulated $4000+ over a couple of years but then could not cash out! Told the to send direct to my charity but nothing happened. I could not even buy anything with the proceeds. At one time my card was charged without authorization. So, is it a scam? Well, now my account is showing a couple of hundred dollars – down from $4000+ and nothing has gone to charity or paid to me!!!

Maybe it’s my two years in Empowr and whoo! men I do understand everything you said in here.
Empwr is really a very complex platform and when I begin I received really a note from the President that I will really be killed here (though it was a joke). And they said also that if I have no money and no time to work I should not joined in because Empowr is in it’s imperfection.
I go on to support their good words to alleviate poverty. But yap I also experienced to be robbed ( not so much of money though i felt a bit hurt but its okey for me and so i go on) but I don’t know since my focus is not really money (though Empowr mentioned their fine goals if you are Empowrians to really got money here). I also read a line about anything words against them will be sued by then as well. And I asked my coaches about these words tht Empwor is a SCam. The Coaches just tell me which is true as well that those who say ThisS IS A SCAM didn’t really get yet the complex situation of the platform. Most of us staying at Empowr learned that if we felt bad and had imperfections the reason behind is that it’s not perfect yet. Also Empowr is really giving free Ads amount to $1000. And even I am not really working the daily tasks needed for me to earn the platform keeps on working for me. One desire for every newly Empowr citizen is the quick desire to get cash but it is never be because Empowr is bussiness. I even told many of my co-Empowrs who have the same struggles faced that Empwor is not a quick rich Scam. You need to know this formula: Sales-Cost of Good Sold + Profit – Expenses = True Profit. You will never gain money or Cash Out with Empowr if you don’t know the basic of Business. Empowr is clear to this that most will say this is a Scam. When I was a babe in Empowr i heard of this and I told one blog that i will go on with empowr and if i saw it is i will really go out but look since I know what Business is all about…I go on. It could be really Scam if u know only one fourth of what is this very Complex one. Hope I do help. God Bless!

    Hi Lanie,

    So, to put it simply for people visiting this page, could you give us the steps that could really get you to cash out from this system?

    I’ve seen people paying money to Empowr unknowingly, and they did what they were told, yet they don’t get any cash pay out in return.

    Could you explain that as well?

I am an Empowr citizen. I upgraded my rank to one step highet level few days ago. This is from teal second power level to teal star. This is a power up in our system. The amount of $60,000 was deducted from my earnings. Expiry of my new rank is 1 month only. So, I have been working hard to earn here, but it will just go to the company. They say that we have profit sharing in the company. But I did not receive a single cent

Lately, they requested me to use Ethereum coins for my total earnings in the company. I have founder coins for 20,000 + matured last June 21, 2018. It shows that it is active. I looked for the coins in my personal ledger. The amount did not appear there. I asked my very good Success Coach with the highest rank in the company. Where are my funder coins? Nada. Wala. Nothing. It just disappeared like that? I requested her to ask higher officials to explain this matter to me. I am sure this happened to other members.

We were required to register our coins in my own Ethereum wallet. My wallet address and private key are now with me. I know that, in the near future, I could transfer some of my coins to an outside wallet. Empowr offer sales of coins. They have an offer that if you buy 1, another 1 free. It means that when I buy 10,000 coins, I will be given 20,000 coins. I have purchased more than 80,000 paying pre-coins. They mature in 3’months. I asked my beautiful Success Coach if where are my other free 80,000 coins? She said that this will be given upon maturity. I requested her again to ask the Management to explain to me why my another 80,000 free coins disappeared again. These coins should be given toe upon purchase. It did not also appear in my account.

Another issue is that they empasized that we are using Empowr coins. I have not heard this in the coin industry. They said that our transactions at Empowr are Ethereum coins. We have our own Ethereum wallets now. They fear that sooner, we will transfer our E coins in outside wallets. They have just fooled us about our use of coins. They know that we have intentions of transferring our coins and getting th out of Empowr. They want to hpld our coins again and never allow anyone to do this action.

In conclusion, Empowr is a great SCAM.

Thank you for your site wherein we could voice our regrets in joining Empowr. Other members have mentioned anout no cash out given to us.

Hi Jack. Empowr is definitely a scam.
I had 2 accounts with them. The first account I earned up to $15000 but could never withdraw any money. However hard I tried, could never qualify. My Paypal account was billed twice and money taken from my CCard without my consent. They never asked for permission or even advised that money would be taken.
Later on I discovered after many hours of searching through the countless layers of menues that I ticked a box which gave them free access to my PayPal account, which I had to switch off.
Thereafter $500 was frequently just deducted from my earnings for operating costs. No warning, no asking of permission, just deducted whenever it suited them.
I started asking many questions and all of a sudden I was denied access to my account. Nobody has the answers and you cannot get to any of the administrators of the business. The success coach was the only acess of communication who never answered any of my questions. I was always refered to the tutorials. After all the data I spent and money that they took from my credit card and earnings account, I still need to meet someone who was able to withdraw money from this scam.
They make their money from click ads and get paid per click that their members make, same as Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, and were supposed to share it with their members, which they NEVER do.
My second account was also frozen and inactive by me, yet every week I see money being deducted from my earnings. The latest deduction was $1000. They are now getting greedy.

    That’s the problem with this program. BEWARE of what you “tick” and “agree” when you sign up to Empowr.

    There were never upfront and the vital information are all in the terms and agreements.

    It’s really unfortunate that you are in this situation. I feel for you Jurie.

I am a Legal professional from India and have same similar problems with my empowr account but since I am not sure the country where it can be brought to justice, could you please arrange for an open discussion to organise a mobilized group for taking legal/other action against all such vague enterprises one by one?

I’m remaining anonymous here, I would Like to tell you all that I am one of the developers behind Empowr and I am very sorry, I apologize. I am shame of myself for developing empowr and please I tell you stay away from it because we made it in such a way that you can never cash out! Indeed you have to invest. Its definitely not a scam, because you do invest and you do get money but that is virtual, you never ever cash out. The only person earning here is the person behind empowr. I had left a few loop holes in the website intentionally to help people being fooled. But, as soon as they realized that I was not with them, they kicked me out. I hope you guys will forgive me. I am heartily sorry for working with empowr. I still repent for other people’s lost money.

I am earning money online since 3 years as a freelancer at Upwork. Many times I have signed up different websites for different purposes but I can’t remember when I have signed up on empowr. Since past few days, I am noticing the emails from empowr that say’s you have earned $0.17, $2, $1 etc. Today I have visited their website and see my balance is $20! Lol, I have to work hard on Upwork at least 3 hours to earn $20 but there is already $20 on empowr without visiting their website ! I have been curious about them and find your blog. I am going to unsubscribe empowr and mostly to mark them as spam.

These empowr bastards are a big time Spammers! I don’t know where they’ve got one of my private “coded” emails (I have my own websites so I create my own emails – so I do Know I didn’t give That one to them!) – and I have a hard time to stop them. Every time I stop one of their spammy names, another, similar just pops up like:

And they don’t have Any contact info on her main website, so it seems I am going to have them to report to Amazon, Google, FTC and other authorities as to take All of their products down!

    Unfortunately, before you join the company, you were given a set of documents to complete, and you’ve agreed to their terms and conditions.

    So, legally, they will not be penalized even if you make a law suit. You really have to understand how Empowr work before you join them.

All what you said is logical so far, but the biggest issue is why you dispute a transaction from your paypal account, this later has no power to refund even Empowr doesn’t reply to dispute after sending emails to them… They are fast to take money but slow or impossible to cash out.

Empower is nothing more than a scam. I was supposed to be able to cash out over $2000. However, I had to have a PYPal account with either a debit or credit card attached to my PayPal account. Empowr stated that they would charge a minimal amount and immediately return it yo you. Well, they charged $30 and as stated they immediately returned the $30. Now it was said that after this transaction I could cash out my earnings. Even though they returned the $30 they have not allowed me to cash put my money. I don’t understand why they charged the $30 and immediately returned it without allowing me to cash out my earnings. My thinking is that they gain your trust by this first transaction and then later on after they have your trust they will charge you and keep your money. I feel that they will never cash put your earnings as I have done not one thing to earn any money. Its a scam plain and simple. I am trying g to delete my empor account and I am not able to do so. I have requested that empowr unsubscribe me and they have not done so. This is spam and it is a scam. They gain your trust then they scam you out of your money with no intention of ever cashing out your so called earnings.

How did I earn money when I have done absolutely nothing to earn it.

Be careful!

If anyone has received a substantial cash put please inform me as I have tried to no avail and my do called coach has never even answered any emails that were sent to them. I don’t believe the coaches even exist.

Anyone correct me if my ideas are wrong.

Jars - Reply

For me, it’s been 2 year on empowr. And yes you can cash out, but you need to do complicated things. My tricks was waiting to get enough power to pay ad fee with empowr balance (red star) and turn off auto level up, that’s make you spend nothing from paypal and just spend a bit balance for ad fee. what you need to do is just wait your balance mature. THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT AND IT’S WORK (i was cash out 150 usd and 2300 usd). BUT now empower have a different system. You don’t need 90 days, mobile apps turn to browser, etc. Now you need 300 point mission. That’s mean, you need to sell things and doing your daily goal. To get 300 point mission, mean you need at least 300 days of posting, liking, and listing that is not easy, you still need to think about fee and new rules. And what i afraid is that not gonna work that way. There is so much thing new and i know people will spend more money in empowr than they can cash out. The best option is stop using empowr because they are smart to gain people trust while fooling them, unless you smart enough to challenge their system (but i doubt cash out is still working).

This account its just false, how can you balance reduce as days goes by and yet you haven’t purchased or cashed out anything. Talking of purchase, I tried buying goods from this site; I never got any response meaning this site is just a lie and I never received those goods.

Hi, thank you very much for that opinion.

The missing things I believe due to their Alpha stage or it can truly be a deception am not so sure yet.

I am too neophyte with Empwr and it’s true am finding hard but I went on because I like also to earn from the true things I got there. Actually I haven’t given my paypal yet it’s good that I have no any card this year. One thing good as a promise and experience by others the $30 activation fee will be refunded. but my question to my coach why not get that amount from my earning at Empowr account? My coach answered me that this is Empowr rule.

I have 4 pending as I experienced selling out there. but I can’t understand the pending words is still pending after a sell transaction of more than a month. About the ad fees Empowr gave $1000 to my Empowr account. I am not sure how it was really used or decreasing as I went on working…I will still want to find out as you know I still believe and support Empwr despite of.

Another thing in the Listing I got a lot of items to sell that is being Rejected by Empowr. There was no specific explanation in how to really have a successful listing. To list is the third task to finished everyday for an Empowr Citizen to have an early Cash Out. You can never earn well in Empowr if you will not work daily.

Another thing I found out that there are lots of Scammers entered in as Empowr Citizen. And my coach told me that we need to report all of them to Empwr and i was told how to eradicate them in Empowr. Some are also doing Porn and I also wanted to help Empwr eradicate them and I like how the site of Empwr solve such.

I also find one person who explained his side at Youtube how he is a success in Empower and lots of people too. I also wanted to know who are the real culprit, those people who been out or eradicated by/from Empowr may of course say something bad. I am also preparing myself and praying that I maybe one being put down, but anyway am not afraid as long as God knows everything. That God will bless those people who bless other people.

Hello from Brazil!!

We are receiving many SPAM messages related to empowr.

I never tried to associate with this company. However, they say that I have a balance of $ 2,000. I’ve never worked actively with empowr. This is magic money ? Did I discover the secret formula to make money without working?

I do not believe in Santa Claus. I also do not believe in money falling from the sky and magical profits. For me, this money does not exist. It’s just a number on a screen. I will not associate my credit card or a paypal account to make a withdrawal. This is bizarre. The way of working of this company is absurd.

I do not know how things work in the United States. There is no supervisory organ? there are no authorities? there is no police I can create a website to fool people. Will not nobody do anything to me? nothing will happen? Fraudsters do not go to jail?

I’ will create a post to alert Brazilians about this fraud. I am researching on the subject and for this reason I accessed this blog and I am making this comment.

Thanks for attention.

Empowr is 100% illustrative, dramatic cheating. You must spend 10000s of USDs there but you will not earn atleast 1 usd and there is no assurence about your profit / returns. There are thousands of hidden rules which they will not tell you and accept you if you found and asked to them.

I spent 2hours a day and 561 days, I completed my daily goals everyday, and I spent $2789 by selling products, and I spend $7500 for paying Ad platform fees. But till today I didn’t received even a penny from empowr.

how can me cash out my balance

Taylor - Reply

From what I understand is that upon very close inspection, you can understand the “how” of Empowr’s profiteering and your own profiteering (if any). By default, Empowr will automatically charge your PayPal or whatever linked account you may have Ad Credit Fees and Power Level upgrade fees (the two ways Empowr actually makes money off of you). I have changed my Empowr settings to not automatically deduct from my connected PayPal account. In fact I’ve double-checked and triple-checked to ensure that they will not charge me automatically. Furthermore, I intend on checking my PayPal account frequently within the next “90” days to ensure their are no automatic payments to Empowr.

However, the “why” of certain aspects of the profiteering (on the part of both Empowr and yourself) remains to be revealed. As the author explained, he, and in addition do not understand how the Empowr balance accumulates, especially if you have never posted, liked, commented, or shared any content on their social media network. At least from what I understand, at least one source of Empowr’s income is derived from interactions on their social media network.

I’ve currently paid about a $10.00 ad credit fee from my Empowr balance of $466.34. (I like to refer to this balance as virtual money, as I’ve no proof yet that it can exist in the real world. Of any Ad Credit Fees to be paid, I would recommend it being paid from the virtual balance of the Empowr account because this means no real money forfeited.) I’ve earned $16 and change so far (Early Cash Out earnings) and I plan on cashing out more after this “Maturation” period. I have many questions that I’m preparing to ask my “Success Coach”, chief among them is how I earned that amount having never posted, liked, or shared anything on Empowr and why exactly I have to wait for “Maturation”.

So if and when my balance reaches “maturation” I will attempt to cash out something around $250.00. (According to the notification included in the article, if the Empowr account falls below $2 it will automatically deduct from your linked PayPal account in order to return the amount to $2. I’d be careful not to let the virtual balance be anywhere near that low, else real money will be taken from the PayPal account.) I’ll keep my eyes peeled if anything besides Ad Credit Fees and Power Level upgrade fees are included to take even more money out of the virtual balance. If I do indeed manage to receive this money, I’ll be posting about it on here, along with much more information about this experience.

So maybe I do receive this $250.00, but I don’t think the legitimacy of Empowr rests on that. Rather in the lucrative value of the earnings. What I’ve written barely scratches the surface of the profiteering nature (for self and for the corporate entity of Empowr) of Empowr. I hadn’t even mentioned the ever growing balance of the Ad Credits themselves. For while you do have to pay a mandatory Ad Credit Fee monthly, this balance will constantly grow. Consider this like a bank loan, although without accumulating interest. This is money spent in your behalf on advertisement campaigns and I assume this grows as your balance grows. I still have to learn more about this, but thankfully Empowr, will only ever exact a mandatory Ad Credit Fee which is only a small percentage of that amount (at least according to my knowledge).

DISCLAIMER: If you test out Empowr for yourself, I would again recommend that you only deal with the virtual money of the Empowr balance and never put yourself at risk by spending real money in your PayPal or other linked account. In addition, I would further recommend using a separate PayPal account that is not linked to any of your banking institutions.

Recently Empowr has deducted 50$ from my PayPal..

Yes There is a refund process and I raised the refund request and it is also showing on my Empowr account But I am unable to cash it out.

I talked with another member at Empowr. He says that you need a credit card for cash out.

It’s really irritating Now I need a credit card.??.

I don’t know what is going on ?? But I am really irritating by Empowr services.

The writer who wrote this article made a thorough investigation before posting this article. All what he said is true. Empowr was launched after people realized the scams of Fanbox. How can you earn money by just posting mere photographs? What did you do to earn about 40,000 dollars?

And if you are intelligent how can Empowr request the detail of your credit card to pay commission on the money you have earned if what you’ve earned is enough for them to take any commission they wanted from it?

One of the fraudsters on the social media Fanbox was Alex Aurora, she is also on Empowr. She has defrauded a lot people, especially those from Asia. They have selected people that claim they cashed in so, so and so. It’s all false cashing news.

I think empowr is good as a way of redistribution and occupation to states that have high unemeployment. As a new member I have done my 90 days and I am waiting for encashment. I will provide a proper evaluation after 10 months.

Firstly, I thank the author of this site for their comments and allowing me an opportunity to comment, in this case, about empowr. From the beginning, I loved empowr. The mission statement alone stunned me. Facebook has about one and a half billion users and empowr is seeking four billion, over half the world. Further, the intent is to “empowr” people globally to earn some kind of living in these ever changing economic times. I put every effort into empowr I could, while working full time. I was exceedingly active and moved up quickly, I was headed soon to move out of blue level. My account balance was right at thirty thousand dollars. I was asked to be a success coach as well. My regular job changed, I had to step up. I stepped down from success coach training and asked to “power down”. Immediately…..yes…my account was closed. I will not bore you with details of the abundant attempts I made to understand the account closure. Empowr hides under the blanket of an LLC (limited liability company), they may close your account at any time. In my case…..I was trying to shut down my credit cards which they still breached and further I had the goal of extracting “earnings”. I never received ten cents from empowr. There are many other flaws such as in the marketplace and people not paying etc. The flaws/glitches do not matter. As long as you have a credit card on file, you are in danger. Their math of advertising fees and more is so disjointed, it is difficult to understand if in fact you are making money but regardless what your account balance is…..try to get some out. Good luck and with the accelerated earnings ??? I wish, truly, I could say one positive thing about empowr. I cannot. I know for sure…..if you heed not my brief warning here….you will be at a loss soon enough. There will be no winners and I do not care what that top ten earner board says….it does not tell you what was spent. Even if empowr fails….they have won and I mean huge. Your failure is their success!!! If you believe this to be incorrect…..I challenge you to show me billions, millions, thousands, or even your one success story.

empowr is not a scam, it is a legit site. It is a site where you can earn friends and money. But, the key to success is patient. It is not a get rich quick site. I have been on empowr since 2013 and empowr help me. I love empowr and sorry for them who says empowr is a scam.

I have a balance of $1,068.25,, of this a large amount is matured yet I can not access any of this. If part of these profits have been spent on automated ad campaigns these funds should not show up in my balance!

I have been charged numerous times over $300 and have not been able to cash out anything as the amount is always 0 to cash out. The money was taken from me without my consent and because this is taken in US Dollars it is costing me far more in Australian Dollars. Costing me for something I do not want and did not ask for , what are they advertising on my behalf as I don’t post anything.

This is a scam and is fueled by peoples desire for easy money and the guilt for wanting to earn stops people from speaking out! (Even though some do.)

I want out before I get charged any more money.. This is a SCAM!

You have a few things wrong, but the only one I’m going to address is that you can choose to have NO OUT OF POCKET COSTS.

If you understood how empowr works by using the platform, watching the educational videos and asking questions, then you would also understand that unlike facebook and other social media, profits are SHARED by the users.

Empowr is a bogus site, which everyday claims that you have earned $4 , this is just to drive traffic to its site,its just one funny bogus scam site where you are lured that you have earned $5000 but pity, you can never cash out a penny, spend all in the ads, now 89% have nothing to sell, so they bid on some social get together pics.

I’m number 4 on the US leaderboard… a lot of what you said is true specially about johnny cash I think we all hate him and his blog posts are so insulting and dumb. I wouldn’t call it a scam because u just need to learn the site adjust your settings and not let them rob your PayPal it’s easy to figure out. Most people quit after a few months after putting hundreds in the system all u have to do is do your daily goals every day .. no one does this that’s the problem, they think they can just join and make a few hundred and than do nothing and cash out … doesn’t work that way … it takes many years to cash out but along the way u make money if u do everything right .. I payed in $700 and I have gotten that $700 back plus a few hundred and have been able to buy thousands of dollars worth of stuff from the market place

Hello Mr. Abiodun,

I keep on trying to cash out. Now I received a notification on my phone. It reads like this:
To receive your cashout key:

1. Please signout below, and sign-in using your account:

2. Once signed in, click the balance button

3. Then click “cash out”

That email is not mine. Does it mean someone has tampered with my account?
What do I do now?

I shared my paypal account with empowr and one day i was cheking my paypal account. When i came across on 4 different occasions i was chrged by empowr from $28.34, $19.98, $18.28, $05.00. When i asked my success coach about it. She asked my to share the screen shorts of my paypal account with her through fireshot. I followed her instructions and send her the link to her. Vut guess what?
She never replied after that and she transferred me to another coach.
My question is: you get notifications for every small thing. Why nothing when your paypal account is charged?
If you have like $9000 in your empowr account. Why would they try to get into your paypal account for 20 dollars.
I have now disconnected my paypal account with empowr and getting hell lot of messages from them about ‘you are loosing Money. Your account is not optimised”
What i feel after being there for more than 2 months and So called earning more than 10k. That they just love my paypal account and steeling from it.


Hello every body
I am real man in Hochiminh city, Vietnam . Worked with Empowr site more than one and half year and my account earning balance is usd 51,000.00 . Up to now i did cash out usd 375.00 while my visa card was deducted more than usd2,000.00 by Empowr site automatically . I cannot cash out more. I sent letter to support team for asking this , they told me to wait more than 90 days. When 90 days ended i asked again then they told me to keep waiting more another 90 days and so on . …. I dont know how can to handle this situation. Who have best advises ? Thank you

Love your article. I was charged $25 and try to cash out. I gave both my credit cards and PayPal, contacted success coaches all to no help. I recently just deleted my account for the simple fact i was fed up with the run around the site was giving me. I hope people do not waste their time on that site. Its a scam and regardless of how much you may think to be making, its all just a trick to get your actually cash. Apps like Acorns and Stash are much better.

I worked diligently thinking this would actually earn money..

They kept wanting to zero out the earnings with the same amount of fees.

Over 48 % Failure to deliver orders to buyers after items were purchased.

When asking for Customer service or real time questions they were never available..

Now with over $117K earned I am being asked to pay out $1355.49 in Ad Platform Fees.

I Called My Bank and listed them as a Fraudulent Vendor..

I had actual sales of $670.47 and over $25K paid out not once , but 2 times when they completely stole my earnings at the 4th month AMCO..

2 months and they have not paid out any AMCO’s …Trying to pawn off a new lie as the next endeavor on here is nothing more than a scam

Now they are sending me notices almost daily saying I need to validate my account after I have repeatedly done so…

I am calling Pay Pal and Blocking all transactions with Empowr as a so called Vendor..

This Brian Woosley needs be investigated for SEC and EXCHANCE Fraud..
He and his wife GRace or whom ever she might be is FAKE,..

They are skimming profits and running with the money!!

I Bet May Ram is his actual wife who supposedly in Belgium Living high on the profits of others hard work..

Their indifference is completely telling in their criminal behavior..

It’s a big scam. I was joined with them last year. After few days I realized it’s a scam because, my account balance keep growing without doing anything. Who pays money to anyone doing nothing. Then I search on Google, and on their Facebook page too. Almost everyone didn’t get paid anything. Everyone asking questions and to most of the questions they Never reply even. Now my account balance showing 4 thousands something and there is 60-89 days balance have 1 thousand and something. But 90 days matured balance is 0. Looks to me their 90 days will never come. Also go to YouTube and search, everyone say scam. There is lot of fake testimonials too. I completely agree with you. Myself saw lots of those inside the system and I think they are put those into top of there news feed. They are stealing money from members. Complete scam. I can say directly with my experience and with my research. 10 years old one can understand it’s a scam useless waste of time.

I have been with Empowr some months now, and just had me account closed today after I asked them for a refund for $125 which they are trying to take from my Paypal account. I say “trying” because I don’t have funds to cover it. They have also been taking money from my Paypal account to pay for purchases I made on their site, despite having a balance of over $2000 with them. There have been amounts of $25 taken from my Paypal account previously for some kind of Power-up I know nothing about. I gave them the benefit of the doubt until now. Money from items I have sold through their auction and sales has not been received by me, only added to the balance I have with them that there seems no way of withdrawing. Each month I wait for my earnings to “mature” but it never happened. Well, now I am well over $200 down, plus items I have sent to people at my own cost, and I have nothing to show for it. Avoid Empowr like the plague. I can’t believe anyone there is really earning money from it.

lovely1 - Reply

So, we have all learned our lesson that Empowr is not a g-dly program. They write a LOT of information for you to read, I believe to confuse you! They place the money they say they are paying you, up front at the top of the page so you can focus on that money and not your paypal or debt card. They allow you to visit, write blogs, bids, talk and show videos and a LOT of other crap to keep your mind off YOUR money. That is another reason they do a LOT of twisted math, so it will be hard and again, confusing , so you won’t focus on anything but the crap they offer you while they steal. I thought it was a law against stealing and scamming. What happened to it? Yes, they TOOK $350.00 from my debt card and I am almost 70 yrs of age, and that money was for my bills for the month of March! Now I am double behind with LATE CHARGES! But you think they care? Talking about the old lady in the shoe! I emailed them 50 times and I got 4 lies back in return. And the coaches are just as nutty as the company. You can ask them questions about empowr and they talk like they created the company, but you can never get a answer about your MONEY! They ignore your questions and start talking way off in left field somewhere! But, The Most High Yah and The Messiah Yahshua is looking right at these sad, hungry people. They never sleep, and He said He will have His revenge!! I pray all of us help to stop thieving crooks, and hopefully some, if not all of us will get our money one way or another. G-d still has money and the POWER 4 us. Pray and bless all…… Shalom. lovely1

I quite appreciate the detailed explanation of Chris above, and also not calling other scam complaints as rubbish, because the platform may be showing different sides to different people.
My opinion is that, never you be overwhelm with earning figures you may see on your page until you are able to feel the bucks in your palm, and if otherwise, you have lost only the time you used on the website..

Earlier today I found out my husband feel prey also I can only imagine the many others who also have, So for I’d say the better part of 2 hrs. Iv’e been planing my strategy on my approach to my husband, I’m sad to say this is not his first nore 2nd not even his 30th- 40th moment succumbing to yet another online scam. Each one of a financial matter. Hoping, believing this is the one, sounds familiar I’m sure, right ! I get it, times can be hard, times are hard. So when I found he had signed up with this Empower and our $ began misplacing themselves in another’ account, Empower’s account, I jumped to my computer and found this sight and others how were expressing concern for the consumers that were unaware they were not being treated as such. SO I have to say I am so glad to see another willing to do there due diligence and and not let what is sounds like as you wish it to be but to find the truth of what they are and what they do. I also just had to investigate nathan lee & serena villanueva the photos look fake, am I right ? So I duge a little and yes, they are not real people, Copy past everyone. Fake names with fake photo. So I went even farther, Know I already new this but I looked into anyway, and I get a lot of companies online do this, there address is virtual, what that means is there not really in the building. There’s a lot more but that’s good enough, anyway as I just got off my own track, this is really what I want to say, Wisdom, use your wisdom to empower yourself with, We have all suffered enough feeding for our hopes and futures off anothers back., were allowing ourselves to over and over again silently feel humiliation from again a pipe dream someone created for there own self. Look up at yourself never down and be your own financial legacie not another’s. Please remember, I promise things truly are not as overwhelming as we allow ourselves to believe, Stay your path, breath, and focus so you can express your own wish of the future you’ve dreamed to be. For Empower, I only speak for myself , I do want to say to you that when I’m coming to or joining a company I like to feel as if I am part of equal as, not after the fact deceived as if a casualty to myself. So please rethink the direction you’ve gone, think being as part of many not only for yourself. Good luck, know it’s time to have my heart to heart with my husband wish me luck in saying the right words so he can see he has within himself for his future not on another’s swindle for only there riches.

I have been on Empower over 90 days. I have saved some of my conversations w/ my coaches. Most of them say the same thing over and over. What I found out was that when you start after 90 days each day is started over w/ the 90 day process. I asked this in my last talk w/ my coach. I have not been able to get back on the site. I had over 4,000.00 made in (points) Which they show as money I have made. When it came time to cash out. it was only 28.00 at the time. I kept asking and they would say (in my mail) I had to pay add fees which was supose to be taken out of my account. I set up a Pay Pal account w/ no money. There is so much more I could talk about. I liked the set up and I felt good to be earning (I thought) extra money because i’m on SSI and wanted to go to work in my home because i’m loosing everything I have. I felt so good to be making money for my home. I spent endless hours and GB on Empower. If you dont have things to sell (like me) you cant reach your goals for the day. So I would think twice before doing business w/ these crooks. I so wanted this to be true. Even half of it would have been good to cash out, I deserved the pay just for the many hours I was online. So Jack Cao I also have conversations about sponsoring (that’s a big joke) You might have all you need but if you like I will be glad to send you everything I have.

I had an for about 4 months, in month 3 they charged my Paypal 5 without my consent so I disputed the charge got back the money in month 4 they did the same thing and I disputed that charge as well. couple days later deceid to log back on and I got the message email not found. so I ask a friend to ask his success coach and was informed that they deleted my account because I disputed the PayPal charge. so they deleted me for reporting the illegal activity they were doing. how interesting.

After 13 months of diligently posting, bidding, etc.. with empowr I can conclude that empowr is set up to siphon money from the massess and pay out menial cahsouts to people who have made large Ad Platform Fees to get to the position of Red Star Power User or higher where you don’t have to Pay Ad Platform Fees. I spent much more money than I earned and had my account deleted when I disputed withdrawals from my PayPal account for purchases I did not want. I have over $60,000 in fully matured 90 day earnings that I’ll never see because you have to deduct Utilized Ad Credits (over $85,000 to date) and Ad Platform Fees (over $4,500 to date) from those earnings to determine your Profit. Do the math and stay away from this deceptive site.

Can you help me to have a starter membership account in Wealthy Alliance? I’ ve tried to have one but the response from the system is “starter membership account is not available in my country (Tanzania)”; and gives suggestion for creating a premium account that costs USD 349 per year.

I think many are missing a HUGE component here: getting you to swap real USDollars into phoney baloney EMPWR dollars which you can never seem to touch. In the marketplace, people routinely pay $80 EMPOWR dollars for a Silver Dollar which can be purchased in cash anywhere at about $20. Thus, people are taking 25 cents on the dollar to cash out by overpaying for coins! No one is making any real money that I can detect and the reason is obvious: You can’t figure out how badly you’re doing unless you realize your revenues are in phony money and cost in real money. Still think you’re making a profit? The success coaches are either duped themselves or can’t tell you this but it is all about getting real dollars from you and paying you in phony dollars.

Hi, I am from Nigeria. I joined empowr since April 2016, I earned close to $1k in just 2months because I was busy doing the jobs since they promised I will cash out after 3months(90days). After the end of July, requested for a cash out and what I see is $0.00 available for cashout. WTF!!! To cut the story short I just became uninterested and labeled it a scam but this empowr kept spamming me with mails of daily accumulated earnings and I decided to try to cash out again in November, I still see same shit. I can’t cash out even a cent. They are SCAM!

Hello everybody…i am a former FanBox member but wasn’t materialized because I have no bank/credit card or PayPal Account. By this October of 2016 I saw the last message of FanBox to my email and I try to click, then I went through Empowr their new name. I joined the empowr because I have now a bank account and a PayPal account. I did same thing with the others post, share, list and bid. I try to bid an item, because I really like the item so much I try to won the bidding. It was automatically deducted to my bank account through PayPal. I message the Empowr seller citizen but the seller told that she was not received the payment yet. We waited until one week but because empowr handled my payment and the items refuses to delivered by the seller, me and the seller disputed the transaction. I try to asked a refund, after 3 weeks waiting again my refund reflected in my balance and is ready to cash out. I follow their procedure in cashing out but it says that the amount should be reflected on my PayPal after 10days. Another experienced that I encountered in joining empowr was they deduct again $7.15 in my bank account through PayPal again for the ad platform fee and told that I can cash out the half of it amounting to $3.58, because it is my money I try cashing out again the said amount and I should waited again 10days to reflect in my PayPal. It is odd because I am thinking now I can cash out because that money belongs to me. But, it takes a lot of time and patience in order that my own money will be reflected in my PayPal. Hopefully it will be reflected because this coming November 14 is the 10th day and I don’t know if they charge me again for another ad platform fee so that I cannot get my money. It’s odd and a big ? mark on me.

    Thanks for sharing this! There are still many people who thinks that Empowr is a good platform for marketing, in fact, like I’ve mentioned, nobody actually looks at your offers and there are no social value to it. I totally do not see the point of Empowr’s existence and your comment just proofs it.

I wish I had seen this before becoming an empowr ‘citizen’. After being one for about three weeks now, here is what I have seen. My ‘balance’ goes up and down like a yo-yo and cannot be tracked consistently. I joined once, but apparently have at least two accounts assigned to as many different personal success coaches. In connecting with other accounts I have often been referred to my own account so that I can ‘close the loop’ with myself for some reason. None of the coaches had an answer for this. The activity consists of liking, sharing, posting and listing the same posts and listings from other people time and time again, day after day. The claim is that empowr gets its income to share from paid advertising, but I have yet to see a paid advertisement on the site. It seems to me that the only money that is going through empowr from anywhere is from the fees that its ‘citizens’ pay to use “advertising credits”, and that is the “97%” that empowr gives back to the citizens, some more, some less. I think empowr rakes the other 3%, which still amounts to a great deal of money though taken as a small amount from each person who joins. Here’s the last straw. Today, after finally deciding I had been duped, I tried to delete my account. This requires entering your password, but for reasons known only to empowr my password came up as incorrect and I had to leave my account in place while I wait for an answer to the question of how to get my password. I’ve spent several hours a day over the past three weeks giving the empowr system a fair test, and it has failed miserably. All I will get for my effort is more fodder for an academic work about online fraud.

I’ve been in Fanbox and I’ve been in EmPowr, I have been selling and I sold tangible goods worth $ 60,000 plus the cost of shipments, many of them very costly because they were for different parts of the world, I have not received absolutely nothing my products sold no longer count my earnings for work done and got my money from sales matured 90 days, but every day were investing me in advertising astronomical amounts for so according to them earn while they ran up my credit and increasingly owed more than one credit of a fictitious money because it is not real, they charge interest on a not real money and if you do not pay interest on interest which is prohibited, the money never comes, you have to invest when you have your own earnings ( real money sales) in energy, in payment of dues (and care if you have your account credited you charge those fees in your paypal or bank card) sometimes very heavy due to uncontrolled investments that make you. Everything is prepared to not get paid anything, and instead you have to pay now a fee of $ 19.95, promises and no answers, just make everything more complicated each time so you do not charge anything at all and if you charge something is what remains to pay the assumptions used and the two real owners EmPowr, which are feeding people who believed in win something to help our families.

I’ve only been a member of Empowr for a little over a week. I do think it odd that either someone sent me an invitation, or they just got my e-mail address and sent it themselves. If someone sponsored me, I have no clue who it might have been.

My current question and major frustration is that when I go to my own site, or even anyone else’s, I’m getting this completely unreadable website which couldn’t be worked on to earn anything if I tried. It is so impossible to read the tiny writing that I had to post a “blind”, for lack of a better word, post to ask if anyone else is having trouble with the website. I can’t even begin to meet my daily goals the way it is. It is the Empowr website because every other website I go to is just fine (including this one).

I know how to take a scrn shot, but not how to get it in the body of this post. All I can say is it isn’t allowing me to do what I need to do. It’s very frustrating.

It doesn’t matter how much you can earn! the point is .. you’re making money Freely , Regarding you stay within the Red Flags! Meaning do not Sell Or buy too much .. Stay within the Budget that requires you to pay for all the Fee’s on Empowr! That’s what I’ve learned so far… If you don’t have a Budget! It’s like Gambling in a Casino and you Lose all your money!!

It isn’t Convenient when you have real money.

Regarding empowr and all the expenses and how much you really earn! Doesn’t Make any value structure to this post you have of Empowr! Considering the money you make is actually paid to you by Empowr! as long as you actually stick within the Margin of Budgeting and staying within the Red Flags of paying off your selling expenses and Strictly staying on top of those monthly charges!!

Empowr Is sort of like Facebook! … only the Interface alone .. The rest is pretty strict and strategically structured! so that people do not get away with spamming.

The democracy is real! and you do make a ton of friends just from reaching out and sharing or viewing their pages which is just half of the fun you get to do within Empowr!

Most of all do not Cry… Because you do not get Charged!! Unless you’re paying for some expense you did not Govern properly!

Guys I want to give you a head up on a company running mad on the net right now called empowr. They seem to be an interesting social network and I joined under the invite of a friend this week. Stay well away and by no means give them access to your debit card or credit card even if you think entering it under paypal makes you safe it does not. I stupidly did, but thank heavens for my angels. This morning my online banking was suspended. I rang AIB which is an Irish Based Helpline to find out why and apparently my PAC Number was accessed by phishing and we believe it to have come from empowr, as it occurred around the same time I signed up with them. So stay away folks and thankfully I have a bank that watches my back closely!!! Don’t trust this company on any level. They may never have done anything with my details, but put in the hands of the wrong unethical person and me and my kids would be starving!!!! I never get involved in stuff like this but as the invite came from a trusted friend, I thought heah maybe this is ok. Its not and I can say no more. I posted up a status to warn my fellow fans on there to take the blinkers of and I am been called a liar!!! I have better things to do with my time then to be running around lies on frickin social media!!! Its amazing how people that dont know you simply are so quick to persume your a nut telling lies. Why!!!!!!!Anyhow thats my REAL experience with empowr. Lesson Learnt.

I have been on Empowr for like a month now and I am pissed because they are charging my paypal and if I don’t have money in my paypal they charge my credit card which is connected to my paypal and I am losing money not making it so I am going to try and cash out what ever I can then just leave the site because it’s a scam. I googled empowr and scam articles popped up and it really answered my question to wether empowr is a scam or not. My balance is over $1,000 but they keep taking money out of my paypal. Makes no sense at all

Robyn Wallis - Reply

I just got an email from Empowr saying that someone I supposedly knew had invited me to join. I had never heard of this person, and when I tried to figure out who it was by going to their site to research it, I suddenly got a flood of emails to my email address in the last day saying that I had earned $20. Every third email today has either told me to post something to earn more, told me that I had been welcomed by someone new and needed to “close the trust circle” with them, or told me that someone had “liked” my photos (fascinating, since I hadn’t posted ANYTHING there!!).

I have been trying to delete my account with them, but they have not made it easy to do it. I had to wade my way through their site until I found thge place to delete the account. A reason to do so had to be checked off, and thge choices listed were:

I don’t understand how to use empowr
I didn’t earn enough on empowr
I have a privacy concern
My account was hacked
I don’t feel safe on empowr (I checked this off)
I have another empowr account
I get too many emails from empowr (Lordy, ISN’T THAT THE TRUTH!!!)

Under “Please explain further” I sent the following reason to them:

I have no idea how the person who claims to know me got my email address, since I very DO NOT know him/her. I don’t feel safe on this site, and I resent the huge number of emails generated and flooding my email address after I tried to use the site to figure out just who it was that claimed they know me. I most certainly DID NOT and WILL NOT post anything here. Your site is singularly difficult to understand or navigate, and again, the assumption that I opened an account with you while trying to figure out how the person who “invited” me and claims to know me got my email address, couldn’t be further from the truth.

Please rest assured that should I receive any other contact from you except to acknowledge the deletion of my “account” , you will be hearing from my attorney.

I guard my privacy aggressively, and I feel that your actions have been an unwelcome violation of it.

Now that it’s sent, we’ll see what happens…

I have made 50 dollars on empowr and have NEVER heard of them! Yet, dozens of people have “liked” the” pictures” I posted. WHAT?? I don’t even have an account with them.
They’re telling me to sign up before I lose my chances on my ad credits. Why do I need to sign up if I’m already “posting”? Sounds like a Junk Bond scheme. Or even a pyramid of some sort. Yes, I suppose people will make money off of this. But which people? What people? Who? And for how long? The Junk Bond scheme ran for years. So did the mortgage market bubble. And look what they left behind.

My question about this is that while you run your ads were you able to get any conversions fromthe ads you run? please kindly let me know

    Jack Cao - Reply

    If your ad and your product is interesting and enticing enough, any platform will generate sales for you, but the convertibility in Empowr is much lesser because there is basically no social value. Everybody clicks “Like” or “Share” blindly.

Cautiously Optimistic - Reply

The other thing I forgot to mention is that empowr puts up “avatars” i.e. fake profiles. I find that practice to be rather odious. If you don’t have enough users on your site, then improve your marketing, not put up fake profiles. I pretty much assume all the good looking women on the site are not real…

Cautiously Optimistic - Reply

Very interesting dialog about empowr. I got referred to empowr from a linked in contact, checked it out and started participating at the beginning of this month (Sept. 2016). The thing about these social networks is that you simply MUST read the terms and conditions, as mind numbing as they are.
Remember that if it costs nothing to join or participate, YOU are the product (or more accurately your buying habits, demographics and other information that can be gleaned from your posts, likes, etc.

When I was going to list something for sale, I read a good amount of the terms and conditions. empowr is an “information and entertainment service”. I haven’t read the whole thing and need to find out about the cashing out procedure, which will be the part that makes or breaks this thing. If cashing out becomes difficult, overly costly or painful for too many people, state AGs will start getting complaints.

So far I have enjoyed the experience but you do have to post, like, bid and list if you want to increase earnings. I’m going to stay on for 90 days to see if I can cash out.

The “social value” of empowr has yet to be proven in my mind but what is the social value of facebook? Not much in my opinion. With empowr there is at least the opportunity for something to come back to you. With facebook, all I get back are ads.

The key is to really understand what you are doing when you decide to participate in social experiments where you are product. I’m not naive about things like this but at the same time there are now so many different non-traditional business models that exist, it’s worth looking at them.

If you get to higher power levels, you do have to spend more time to hit those daily goals so the time factor could be a real issue down the road.

Thanks for putting this out there.

As a business owner we receive 4 emails per day from this rogue outfit claiming we have $20 in the account when we have not even signed up to join them.

Its just a SCAM that will be shut down shortly for sure. Anyone actually signing up and joining this ridiculous scheme needs their heads testing seriously! There is only one way to make money and for that, the truth is to run a legit business unless you want to be a scammer like this outfit clearly is!

Stop wasting your time and energy on a non existent scheme that will not only take money from you but is also going to shut down shortly and move onto another scheme to run and pull innocent people in to rob them of their money. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE PLEASE!!!

Anti-Pyramiding Scam - Reply

Right of the bat, I pegged Empowr as a pyramiding scam, disguised under “monetizable share/post content site.” The money people “earn” are from the paypal fees they charge for other people to pay when they want to cash out their earnings.

In pyramid scams, you have to pay for a “membership fee” before you can start earning. How do you earn? by making other people pay membership fees to join the model, where you get a cut from what they paid.

Empowr sounds very much like it, except they’ve hidden the basic framework of pyramiding from plain view. I’ve been busting pyramid scams in my country since they started putting unwitting people in tens of thousands worth of cash into debt, and this smells every bit like a pyramid scam in sheep’s clothing.

Hi Pal,
Thanks for sharing this post. Based on my previous experience on stuff like this, I decided to do a background check on Empowr. If what you write about Empowr is anything to go by, then people should forget about them. I had a nasty experience with fanbox. I earned more than $6,000 and when it was time to cash out the money, I was told to pay some dollars to facilitate my withdrawal.

However, I wrote a letter to them pleading that they deduct the said sum from my earnings and I didn’t hear anything from them again. The next thing was that they sent a mail notifying me of debiting my credit card. I had to delete my fanbox account. It was not that easy to that because of nonsense question they asked me. Thank God I finally did it.

I started in January of 2016. Probably spent $ 1500 before I realized that I was not getting anywhere . Now I am still there mainly to aggravate them which I am doing . Can you make money ? If you invest pretty close to
$ 5 , 000 and reach red level , and really become a seller in their marketplace , you have a chance to make some serious money . But their business model remains one that needs thousands of new fans worldwide each week who on average will spend between 300 and 2,000 before they pull out, run out of funds or sit like me on the sidelines . Only a very small number make it and of course they won’t tell you that . THEY TAKE FROM THE NON KNOWING FANS IN ORDER TO KEEP ALIVE . This is not a scam but as borderline as you can get .

I never heard of empowr, I just happened to check my junk mail folder and found about 30 emails from empowr. The first email welcoming me was from 3 days ago, then the other emails were about my earnings and likes from photos. I certainly didn’t sign up and was hesitant to click on any links in the email. I googled empowr and looked at their site. Then I found this review. Sounds scamish to me.
I think I’ll just ignore the emails for now and see if it stops, rather than ‘unsubscribe’ because I’m still hesitant to click on any links from them.

So If I been in empowr for two weeks and lets say i have erarned $400, after read this threat I feel that the best thing for me to do at this time is to drop out, would I own anything or do I come out clean owning nothing, and forfeit the $400.

    You get nothing if you don’t pay anything to Empowr. You have to pay them advertising fee in order to cash out. Worst thing is your “income” takes 3 months to cash out while you pay monthly advertising fees.
