SFI (Strong Future International) Scam Review

SFI Dream



Product Name: SFI Internet Income


Price: Free

Verdict: Not recommended


SFI is another pyramid scheme that promises people to make them rich fast. If someone wants to know if SFI program is a scam or not it will be a bit difficult because it requires some research. On the internet you will find both positive and negative reviews in regards to this company.

And before making a decision about SFI one must have some basic knowledge on how internet marketing works. I’ve been involved in internet marketing for some time and trust me, I know what I’m talking about. So, today I’m going to take a closer look at SFI to clarify as to what the SFI is about.

You can join the program for free which is really great. If you can try a product before you buy it, it is great, BUT if you can’t benefit from it afterwards, then what is the use of trying it for free?



What Does SFI promise you?

  • So, once you join the program, you’ll become an Executive Affiliate
  • Once you become an Executive Affiliate you must recruit 5 other affiliates
  • You must teach those five affiliates how to apply the same steps and recruit others

The name of the company is (Strong Future International) which means that the owners of the program promise people that through applying 3 simple steps they will be able to build a strong future for themselves. Is this true? No, I don’t think so.


Pros of the program:

  • You can join it for free and
  • Theoretically start making money though later you’re going to realize that it’s not as simple as you might have been thinking.

Cons of the program:

  • After becoming an Executive Affiliate you will be provided with a website for marketing SFI products and for each sale you’ll get a commission.
  • Like in all other pyramid schemes you need to move up and recruit all your friends, and family members. This is the nature of any pyramid scheme, otherwise you’ll not make any money.
  • A lot of complaints about SFI program
  • There is no real quality training you can benefit from though they have some training modules.
  • You need to spend money buying gift cards to distribute them among your friends, plus you can easily spend more money for your membership instead of making them.
  • The navigation on their website is really complicated. For an average user who has no experience in internet marketing it would be really hard to understand what SFI has to offer.


How can you make money with SFI?

There are different ways and I’m going to show you:

  1. Theoretically you can make money with SFI by accumulating Versapoints. But how can you accumulate those points? When you join SFI you start completing tasks within the program and even may be asked to buy some products. Once you reach certain amount of versa points (1500) you can start getting your share.
  2. You can make money with TripleClicks if you join their affiliate program. Once you become an affiliate, you can start selling their products and each time you refer someone to TripleClicks you’ll earn Versapoints.
  3. You can make money by recruiting others. So, you invite other people to join the program and once they join, they start doing same things as you do. Your versapoints go up.
  4. Extra income streams. You can refer other sellers to TripleClick and increase your points. Also, you can participate in the SFI Pay-Per-Action program.


Can you really become rich with SFI?

SFI promises that once you join their program, you can start making money within minutes. Is this true? If you don’t have any experience in internet marketing you can easily believe them. Trust me, reality is absolutely different. To start making money online requires certain skills and knowledge. You need to learn the basics of internet marketing first.


Make money with SFI


I can’t say that the program is a pure scam but what I know exactly is that you will not make thousands of dollars, not to mention six figures. When you join the program like this one, i.e. pyramid scheme, you start at the bottom and then you need to move up by recruiting more and more people under you and only few can do it. And keep in mind that to earn versapoints you need to spend money within the program.

six figure with SFI




Final word on SFI

There are many complaints about SFI and that proves that even if the program is not a pure scam according to some reviews, anyway it’s not recommended because:

  1. There are many complaints
  2. There are some obvious cons
  3. The program is an MLM scheme and all MLMs have a bad reputation
  4. The program is BY FAR not the best one on the web

As for the complaints, you can easily find many at Ripoff Report

not really a scam



If you read my article “Scam review” you’ll find that SFI has all signs of being a scam though it’s not a pure scam. Remember that if a program promises that you can make six figures or start making money within minutes it’s most probably a scam.

Building a serious business online or offline takes time, 1 to 2 years at least. Anyway, due to the facts I mentioned above I really can’t recommend SFI to you.

There is a much better option, such as Wealthy Affiliate – online business community where you can get trained and build your real business online.

I built my site and my business thanks to WA and the most important fact is that you can hardly find any complaints about WA on the web. And the owners of WA, Kyle and Carson never promise anyone that they will be making six figures.

WA can give you all you need to build a successful business online BUT will you make an money or not completely depends on you. If you follow the training at WA and apply what they teach you, you will be make money like many other successful members of WA that I know personally.

Actually, WA is the best program out there that I highly recommend to join. Please read my review of the WA and if you have any question don’t hesitate to contact me.

  1. Hi Rufat

    It’s hard to build any business and SFI is no different. I own a successful vending (drinks, snacks, bulk candy and toys) business. It required a significant monetary investment and lots of time.

    Most people believe that an online business does not require such investment and rightfully so. Because of all the hype that flows on the Internet, most people don’t believe that to become successful in Internet marketing a significant investment is required.

    But as I mentioned, SFI and any other online business requires a significant investment in order to earn a 6 figure income. I don’t yet earn a six figure income with SFI, but I am well on my way.

    Too many people look at online business opportunities like a job. With a job you get guaranteed results…high taxes and a life of indentured servitude. With a business you get a LIFE.

    Although SFI is simple for me to understand, I can understand how people get confused. However, Gery Carson is the best thing since the wheel and he has a well oiled machine called SFI (Strong Future International).

    To your success :-)

      Hi Anton,

      I agree that building a successful online business requires time and patience and some investment of course. But it goes against what SFI promises to people about 6 figure income and starting making money after creating an account. Anyway, I said in my review that SFI was not a scam but I don’t recommend it because there are way better programs out there. But if you are happy with SFI I wish you all the best with your business.

    Hi, Rufat,to a great degree instructive post. I am new on this online business lifestyle thing and I’m basically giving the underlying strides. Before I went over Strong future International and I was in vulnerability if it was defended paying little respect to an endeavor. I picked not to as it looked to some degree dodgy to me. I’m glad that I found Wealthy Affiliate, such a wonderful community of people and knowledge Will I ask what was your starting stage to have the ability to surrender your normal occupation and have a business in a manner of speaking?

    Thankful to you to such a degree!

    Yours Truly,

    • Rufat says:

      In my opinion, SFI is not a program I would recommend. But it’s free to join and anyone can see it from inside. Anyone can try. Maybe this is exactly what they are looking for. Who knows? But I’m glad you made the right decision by joining WA. You saved yourself from wasting your time.

    Hi Rufat,

    I joined SFI some years ago when I first started internet marketing. I logged in each day religiously to get some points accumulated and even recruited some people. I think in the year or so I tried it I made $10 or so. Even when you do recruit people, you don’t make money unless they buy something. If nobody buys anything, nobody makes anything.

    I am not sorry I joined and still have my membership running. Didn’t have to invest anything but time. Learnt some tricks from the training and learnt what works and what doesn’t. Even managed to sell a book through triple clicks once. This one certainly didn’t do it for me. If you are looking to make an income, you may want to look elsewhere.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Michel, and thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my post. I really love getting comments from real users of the program because it does make a lot of sense and looks more convincing to people. And it’s really great that you are sharing your experience so other can see for themselves that what SFI promises is not going to work as easy as they want it to see and as they promote it to others. The only positive aspect of the program is that you can join it fro free and see for yourself whether it works for you or not. I think for the most part it’s a huge waste of time and after your comment my feelings became stronger about my verdict on the program. You say you’ve made $10 while these guys from the program claim that you can build a strong future with them and even make a 6 figure income. I think with all these facts, complaints and and your experience that you’ve shared with us it’s pretty clear that SFI is a waste of time. Thank you very much for your comment.

    Hi Rufat,

    I think SFI is the biggest contrast I’ve seen so far. It’s not a scam but it is. But hey, isn’t everything we can’t figure out a scam?

    I joined SFI back in early 2014 and I was completely overwhelmed as soon as I got to my dashboard. It’s so complex that a new Online Entrepreneur/Internet Marketer doesn’t even know where to start. SFI doesn’t show precise directions and any training to create a business and generate money.

    While the concept seems to be great (it’s free to join), but there’s so much time needed to spend on that website. This is indeed wasted time you could have invested into your business.

    It’s a great review and it hits the nail on the head but just as you I don’t recommend this business opportunity, especially not to new business starters. Join Wealthy Affiliate instead. At least they show you step by step how to create a business from scratch. Something SFI is missing big time.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Nicole for stopping by and leaving your valuable comment on my post. Sorry to hear about your bad experience with SFI, but it’s good that decided to leave your comment here and I hope it will serve as the best proof for those who are still doubt or thinking of joining SFI. It’s not a scam, but it’s really hard to achieve real success with this program because they don’t actually teach people any real strategies how to build a business online. WA offers completely different experience and if you follow the training you will be able to build your online business. It’s up to you to make it work. I mean, anyone can achieve success with WA if they are willing to put in the work.

  5. Rufat says:

    Glad you like the stuff. Just wanted to show people what the program really is and save them from poor programs, such as SFI. It’s by far and definitely not the best one on the internet.
