Helping Hands International investment platform: how it works?

Helping Hands is a Ponzi scheme like MMM and you should be careful putting your money in it.

However, If you still want to join Helping Hands Nigeria, you can join under a referee who you will be under. After that, you would be required to register your account with only $40 (about 20,000 Naira) to join the organization and be able to register others under you as well.

After you registered your account – you may enjoy things, like:
Business Loan
Free educational fund for your children
Residential income
Paid trips
Free House
New Car
Skill trading
Property support

However, you should understand that if you pay $40 (N20k), you may still not be qualified to enjoy the above-mentioned things. Registration does not mean access to get the full free package. If you want to have all above mentioned – you need to find more people who would pay more money into the system. It`s a classical Pyramid Scheme or MLM. If you are on top of this pyramid – you get money. If you are somewhere at the basis, then you might get nothing.

What is Helping Hands International Compensation Plan

This is a pyramid system. It means just registering with $40 (20k Naira) is just the beginning, you have to register others as well and encourage them to pay into the system. If you want to get some money from the Helping Hands International Compensation, then you need to grow through stages.

1 Stage. Associate
At the very first stage, you just need to make sure that you invest $40 ( N20,000) into the Helping Hands Nigeria. After that, you will be provided with your personal account and referral or direct link to the project. After that, you need to start introducing other people to the Helping Hands International Nigeria. Every person whom you invite to the system will provide you 20% of the sum of the investment. It means that if they invest $40 – you get $8 (N4000) If you want to become an associate, you need to create a matrix, where two people you brought also provided two other people. If you invite six persons – you get 6*8 = $48 plus $10 for building the matrix. If you get two persons, then you get $26.

What is the point of the system on this stage? If you manage to build a pyramid 124, you get $58, your two associates on the lower level gets $28 each, and four other persons get nothing. Therefore, if youve managed to become the Associate youve also managed to bring to the Helping Hands Nigeria $280, and it must return only $110 ($58 to you and $52 to two people of your matrix on the lower level). It means that they get 170$ tax free money just from you. Is not it wonderful?

Stage 2. Master
In this stage, you become a master if six members of your matrix level up to the Associate stage. It means to collect at least $26 from getting two people into the Helping Hands Nigeria. Therefore, you need to build a simple matrix of your associates 2*5. There you get $1000 as your matrix bonus. Also, you can also have a free laptop. You can also earn extra 10% every time your direct referral completes a stage. It`s called Matching Bonus.

Stage 3. Super master
When people in your 2*5 become masters, you will receive $1500 and another $1500 bonus if your matrix will fill in. Your direct uplink will provide you with $150 Matching Bonus. You can also get a brand new Hyundai ix10 from the Helping Hands International.
