Crowd Rising Review – Profitable or Another Scam?

Welcome to my Crowd Rising Review!

This is the latest business opportunity on the scene and I decided to find out what it was all about…

Maybe someone approached you about this company or you were approached on social media and now you want to know if it was actually legit or not…

Well, you came to the right place…

I am going to give you a proper third party review about the company, the products and compensation plan so you can make the right decision to join or not…

Crowd Rising Review

Crowd Rising Review – The Company

Crowd Rising is the brain child of Gerhard Rempel who just launched the company recently.

There is no other information out there, but apparently there are 5 more people on the management team they call the “5 Horsemen”.

Who these people are is still mystery.

Maybe when the company gets going, we will see who the entire management group is…

Rempel on the other hand has launched similar companies like this in the past…

In 2013, he was the co-owner of Belizers which is a $10 and $25 investment deal that promised a 150% ROI…

This company is long gone now, but the next one on the list came out in 2015 called Fast cash Cyclone which again collapsed…

It was one of those Ad-Credit companies…

Now in 2016, Gerhard has Crowd Rising…

Let’s hope he learns from his mistakes, to find out keep reading…

Crowd Rising Reviews – The Products

Crowd Rising doesn’t have any products…

I checked their website to see if they had any products bundled with their membership…

It’s literally donating money to others…

So it has no products…

Not looking good so far…

You can only market the actual membership…

Alright next, let’s check out the actual compensation plan…

Crowd Rising Compensation Plan

Like all network marketing companies, you get paid when you refer people in the business…

Here affiliate pay $20 to get a position in their 5×10 matrix…

A 5×10 Matrix has a total of 12,207,030 positions…

To be qualified to earn commissions, you have to gift your $20 to your sponsor then 5 spots pop up below you…

Once their first 5 spots are filled up, they have to gift another $40 to their sponsor…

This is what that looks like:

  • Level 1 – gift $20 to your upline and receive $20 from five subsequently recruited affiliates
  • Level 2 – gift $40 to your upline and receive $40 from 25 affiliates
  • Level 3 – gift $60 to your upline and receive $60 from 125 affiliates
  • Level 4 – gift $100 to your upline and receive $100 from 625 affiliates
  • Level 5 – gift $200 to your upline and receive $200 from 3125 affiliates
  • Level 6 – gift $300 to your upline and receive $300 from 15,625 affiliates
  • Level 7 – gift $400 to your upline and receive $400 from 78,125 affiliates
  • Level 8 – gift $500 to your upline and receive $500 from 390,625 affiliates
  • Level 9 – gift $700 to your upline and receive $700 from 1,953,125 affiliates
  • Level 10 – gift $990 to your upline and receive $990 from 9,765,625 affiliates

In case you don’t know what a 5 by 10 matrix looks like…

It look like this:

  • YOU
  • Level 1:  5 positions
  • Level 2:  25 positions
  • Level 3:  125 positions

And so on…

Cost to Join Crowd Rising

To become an affiliate,  you most purchase at least one position in the matrix for $20….

Crowd Rising Review – The Verdict


I noticed a lot of these cash gifting companies are popping up lately…

One of them being Zewang which is modeled like MMM Global which actually went out of business last month…


I would stay away from companies like this…

They don’t go anywhere…

Sure you might make a quick buck buy recruiting people in this type of business…

But it’s so UNETHICAL if you ask me…

You know this is a scam but you are recruiting people in this business…

Find a legit business that you can build a legacy for your family instead of these ponzi schemes…

If you don’t know what to join…

Click here for my #1 Recommendation that isn’t a scam…

I really like it actually I have joined it and I hope I’m not gonna regret it.I like it because you don’t have to wait for days to get your money

    Kreisna - June 9, 2016

    I think its great too! You don’t have to buy a product.. you’re just helping someone out.. its like paying it forward.. using what profit you’ve already made to make more.. why wouldn’t you like it?

      Jesse Singh - June 9, 2016


      I believe you should give yes, but when you constantly pay it forward to the same kind of people, they will never learn how to becomes successful on there own.

      Some times a hand me out is a hand me down…

      Neliswa - November 1, 2016

      But I joined crowd on 3 September and I have 8 people under me but I’m not yet received money what happened

        Ayobami - November 30, 2016

Charles - June 11, 2016

If you say Crowd rising’s system is unethical I have to ask you a question. What is ethical because everything is a scam? Banks ,insurance companies and all other financial businesses are scams.

    Jesse Singh - June 11, 2016


    Come on man, don’t give me that lol.

    You got one of the worst mindsets on the planet.

    Not everything is a scam.

    But when something is, you stay away from it.

    We will see how long this lasts.

      Joshua - November 10, 2016

      We all know its a Ponzi Scheme, given his previous companies we know this one would not last, but we want to make the most out it before it crashed

        Jesse Singh - November 10, 2016

        Oh okay Joshua, so you want to scam people before it crashes?


    oluseun - September 24, 2016

    Great point there.

    Solutions - December 2, 2016

    Crowd rising pays… Join, pay, get 5 people to join… Make them understand d benefits… If ur upliner has spill over, that person will b matched to his downliner who may still b struggling to get people… Work as a team and go higher… Yes, nothing good comes easy… But this one is promising…

Mzamo - June 24, 2016

Online wealth market is it also a scam

Ellen - July 3, 2016

Does this work with dollars only

    Jesse Singh - July 3, 2016

    I don’t know, I do not endorse this business “Crowd Rising”.

      Wealthyguy - January 24, 2017

      You pay directly into your upline’s account and your downlines pay directly into your account. So how’s that a scam? Do you really understand the meaning of a scheme been a scam?

        Jesse Singh - January 25, 2017

        No products and services and all is happening here is gifting payments.

        Google “Gifting Schemes”.

    Lissa - November 1, 2016

    No also in rands

tshegofatso - July 7, 2016

How do i log in, is it must that I recruite ? How long does it take to receive after donating ?

    Jesse Singh - July 7, 2016

    I don’t know, I am not a fan of this company.

      flo - August 15, 2016


Max - July 7, 2016

It is $20 (R300) that’s all you have to pay. The rest pays for itself (unless you spend it all before you upgrade to the next level). Even if it is a pyramid scheme (which it probably isn’t) you lose next to nothing if you’re disciplined with you’re money in the account that you have.

    Jesse Singh - July 7, 2016

    Why would you join something knowing it’s Pyramid scheme?

Jan - July 12, 2016

I’m so sorry to say but I joined something like this and it could work if ur upliners do their part as well, I paid what I was supposed and never received anything back, so sad.

    Sameul - December 30, 2016

    Did u join crowdrising

justP - July 12, 2016

As long as there are lottos, cassinos. These are more losing than winning games. They are pyramid schemes.
we now join pyramid schemes knowing exactly that they are scams but they have better chance of winning than lotto or cassino

Ethel - July 19, 2016

Help me here guys so you just have to deposit something like R300 only nothing more or less and then what next

    Grace - September 4, 2016

    Hi Ethel u sign up is next and u get to recruit people using your ref link u get your money back immediately u sign up ur first person the rest are profits I like this.

Baxolile - August 10, 2016

Guys please help me I joined a month ago but this person who recruited me is not giving me full information, I never got paid and I also recruited 5members and they paid already. Please help me

    Jesse Singh - August 10, 2016

    Why don’t you contact their support if they have any?

    Warned people about this…

    k - August 18, 2016

    You recruited five people they should have paid direct to you. It’s peer to peer donations, how can you not get paid. Crowdrising have support via Facebook and skype, run a search and you’ll find them.

    Abiodun - September 13, 2016

    They have to paid into your account instead of the person. He scam you. This is how it work. He refers u and you refer 5people who paid into ur bank account and u move step up.

    Ayobami - November 30, 2016

    You do not contact support on donation, you contact your upline. Who is your upline? However, you can visit the FACEBOOK PAGE OF CROWDRISING

Maureen - August 11, 2016

Hpe it will work already joined

nasseyb khamis - August 11, 2016

What will happen to help the team to someone who will miss his people have contributed the only story he simply set about obtaining and when he arrived , illness or death ?.

    Ayobami - November 30, 2016

    iTS A DONATION. In such event, the member of the family who knows or interested in crowdrising can continue the donations

      Jesse Singh - December 1, 2016

      It’s not real donations Ayobami, do you know what donations means?

      You give someone money without expecting anything back.

      This is clearing a gifting scheme because there is a compensation plan involved.

Owen tumbo - August 12, 2016

what if i fail to find and recruit five other people/ does that mean to say i will not be able to upgrade/

    Ayobami - November 30, 2016

    Yes. It means you joined without visiting the FAQ

Masudran - August 12, 2016

Lord help us all the things we do /join/sacrifice for money gambling loosing its just aLl a pain

ROb - August 16, 2016

someone approached me this morning telling me about this, is work like MMM?

    Jesse Singh - August 16, 2016

    MMM and Crowdfunding based businesses are all scams.

mancho chris - August 29, 2016

wait as i rise to the top…life is what you make it.

kenneth - September 2, 2016

Wht if someone dat registered could nt get 5 persons but have paid the $20,will he still recieve his own money or u must recruit 5 persons before u can be paid.pls answer me.

Walter - September 3, 2016

don’t know why people are taking pills on another people sickness. wow I live to be scammed. so what. is it your money that is been scammed. why are you so worried about this.

Abiodun - September 13, 2016

It is true, reason been that member are not sending money to one central account. They only share money with themselves. You can only called it scam if people are sending money to crowdrising account.

Darlington Emmanuel - September 15, 2016

I love the business.but I want to ask if someone register,how will you see the person’s bank details?

    Ayobami - November 30, 2016

    Click Upgrade and scroll dowwn, you will see the details of the person to receive your donation

David - September 19, 2016

Here is a question for you…. How can this be a legitimate business without any real products? OK, If all it’s about is donations to help people out who are down on their luck, that is a GREAT Idea. However, if it has a pyramid structure to it, then it is either an MLM (if there are any real or digital products involved), or a pyramid scheme (if there are no products at all). Now pyramids are illegal and eventually the whole structure will collapse since there are no real products.

I am glad I looked at this review, because on their home page, they failed to mention anything about the pyramid structure and that there was no products. It looked like it was just donations that members would be giving to other members who were just down on their luck. Like I said that would be a pretty good idea if there are no levels to it like a pyramid because everyone needs a helping hand once in a while.

Thank you for this review, you saved me from making a terrible mistake.

    Jesse Singh - September 20, 2016

    Hey David,

    No problem my friend 🙂

godswill - September 25, 2016

Jesse I ll be glad if you recommend me to any onLine networking business that is no scam and out for real money so that maybe I can join…

    Jesse Singh - September 25, 2016


    You can click the link in my blog post below the review 🙂

pzaro - October 8, 2016

I have collected 10 times the money I invested and you are busy lamenting what is scam and what is not…life itself is risk and only risk takers always succed… So keep your review cos crowd rising works for and am enjoying it while it last…

    Jesse Singh - October 10, 2016


Dakota - October 9, 2016

This reminds me of the pyramid schemes that did the rounds in the 80’s and 90’s.
People tried to rope me in and thankfully I was cautious. When the whole thing collapsed, which it very often did, the people at the top went away loaded, the people at the bottom didn’t.
I know loads of people that lost a hell of a lot of money that they could ill afford.
The best way to get rich is….good old fashioned hard work I’m afraid. Think Lord Sugar, Richard Branson, etc.

Rissa - October 9, 2016

If I give 20 pounds of my shit, then I get 250 pounds of shite back, and so on and so forth.
Next time I need a shit, I shall join as I have a lot of roses…..

samuel - October 9, 2016

pls am l the one to register whoever that paid money to me or not?

    Weseja - October 11, 2016

    Yeah, you register whoever pays you. And no one touches someelse’s money, money get deposited to your account.

Masawe - October 16, 2016

If you pass through principal of networking markiting you can’t wast time doing this.

    Ayobami - November 30, 2016


Clevis - October 22, 2016

Where is this money always coming from? You guys most be funny. Just put in $20 and wants to make $250 out of it. How could this be possible given that every member hopes for the money? You rather play Cassinos and Lottos knowing that it takes luck to win than engage this.

Bourne - October 25, 2016

Don’t worry i will start mine too.what happened to MMM global

lucky Catherine - October 30, 2016

When you say bring 5 affiliate in d first stage,then later 25,125,etc. Are you to provide all these affiliates yourself or you only provide the first five and d networking site do d rest or is it a case of,the more you bring,the more you earn??

Tracy - November 1, 2016

Mina what l don’t understand is, if l play my matches right. Am on first stage, l pay my $20 and recruit my five. They pay me each their $20. Now they are each recruiting for their own 5*$20. How do l rise since its a peer to peer game. Each of my five recruits have to also recruit their 5 in order to make to 2nd stage, which means they are the ones getting the donations not me. So why is the calculations to me calculating my recruits’s amount as if the donations are coming to me directly? That my question.

    Bright - November 5, 2016

    That is the big question which others have failed to ask. Without doubt crowd rising delibrately waves the carrot in peoples faces and most bite without second thought. If I recruit 5 persons who each pay me $20 how come if these 5 persons recruit 5 people each who pays $20 directly into their account I stil get paid $125. Where is the money for the second nd third level participants coming from?. Surely not from the new entrants who pay directly into the account of the first level participants. In all honesty no one can introduce a loved one into this glaring scam. Good luck though to any who wants to participate.

      Emeka - November 5, 2016

      @ Bright. Certainly you re right. I wonder why most people do not critically think things through once there is promise of huge profit in the making. I can not after knowing the facts introduce my family and friends to be scammed.

        Boss - November 9, 2016

        Those 5 people you invited will also invite 5 people each (25). On your 2nd level, those 25 people are going to pay to you. They will also invite 5 people each, their invitees will pay you on your third level

      Luther king - November 27, 2016

      Your calculation is wrong, you quickly forgot that before someone will move to stage two you have to donate to someone who have already qualified in stage two. Likewise those five people you introduced will work hard to move to stage two by introducing another five people as well, so for them to move to stage two they have to pay to the already qualified person. So, my dear stop discouraging others if you are not interested. Business all about risk, it’s either you gain or you lose, so don’t inflict your failure to others via your wrong perception.

Tobechukwu - November 6, 2016

When i register, does it mean, I must be the one convincing people to register and pay into my account. If so, what if am unable to invite people and convince them, will the system give me people, or pay me?

Charles - November 9, 2016


Enyinnaya Daniel chiduzie - November 9, 2016

Its a scam since I paid my money I haven’t gotten any payment for more than five days they should better pay me

Enyinnaya Daniel chiduzie - November 10, 2016

I have been paid by just one remaining four but nice action I’m beginning to gain more intrest I think is no longer a scam

gudtalent - November 10, 2016

I signed up for Crowd rising program and make $80 on my first day, i refereed 4 people and it’s really paying of.
This program is real ans not a scam, all you need to do is use your good initiative and talk to people.

kakadon - November 14, 2016

pls i have so many people to register under me, i hope de system will still refer dm to pple dat will pay them if i register them under me and collect their money

Oscar70 - November 14, 2016

My question is i know my self i can’t convince pple so i want to know if the system will give people that wil pay me without referring them if yes,how long wil it take.i need an urgent answer

Bosco - November 14, 2016

Thank you oscar…exactly what am about asking….will the system match those that were unable to get people to register under them after they have paid the $20 to their upline and entered stage one? This is were am having problem….someone should explain better to me….

victor - November 14, 2016

if I don’t bring anyone, will I still be paid, if yes how many days

Jeff - November 17, 2016

Easy way to get money fast.

Don’t wait for the system to get referrals. Get them yourself but educate them on how it works. If you don’t give them confidence, they will get sceptical and may lose interest.

I go paid by all my referrals within 48 hours.

    Derrick - November 21, 2016

    He asked if he’ll still be paid?

Osascliff - November 22, 2016

When will the person i register under me will get his or her first payment even when he or she has no body him or her

Esther Oliver - November 25, 2016

Am A Bit Scared, I Jxt Got My 5 Downlines. And Dy Cant Convince People. Hope They Will Be Matched Within 16 Days?

Mary - November 25, 2016

frankiyke - November 25, 2016

How can you know if they merge you with somebody?

adanna10 - November 25, 2016

You peoples said you will merge a member that you blocked within 48hours but my account still remain the same after the 48hours why?

Handels - November 26, 2016

Close to two weeks now I have registered and I have made my first stage but I haven’t been given any to pay to me … I don’t believe this any more I just wasted my $20 for noting. This is just a scam..

Handels - November 26, 2016

Seriously Close to two weeks now I have registered and I have made my first stage but I haven’t been given any to pay to me … I don’t believe this any more I just wasted my $20 for noting. This is just a scam..

Lily - November 27, 2016

I wonder why people dont analyse the structures of what they engage in. All these schemes paying 500% won’t last many will lose their money practically 80%. Any scheme paying 500% or asking you to bring 5people and they pay you please it is not healthy, these guys are brainwashing us their structures are not workable. MMM is the healthiest among them, not promoting it but I have sat and calculate the structure if well managed it will last. They give out 30% that’s OK if disciplinary measures are taken
I am not actually against all these cos I participate in MMM but they should bring out workable structures. Let’s not be only concerned with our own gain let’s think of the people we are bringing in. Pls the schemes should adjust and come up with what will favor all and not few.

Esther Lebechi - November 29, 2016

Hmmmmm I saw an advert on Facebook and followed the link. I called the person and he told me that one must not bring someone before been paid. That two weeks, the system matches you. I registered, is two weeks yesterday and I have not been merge to be paid. Who knows how I can get my money back?

shanti - November 29, 2016

Hello everyone. Contrary to Jesse’s idea of Crowdrising…….it actually works. I joined ont the 21st of July and NEVER looked back.:-) A pyramid scheme is a group of people enriching a few. Not so with crowdrising……..here EVERYBODY gains. I have made 20 times my initial R300 and look forward to spending many more years with CR. To each his own! THANK YOU GERHARD REMPEL for AN AMAZING PEER TO PEER DIRECT FUNdING PLatfOrM!!!! WEll over 170 000 members worldwide in less that 9months! CROWDRISING ROCKS!!!!!!!

    Jesse Singh - November 29, 2016

    Hey Shanti,

    It’s not a funding program, it’s a “Gifting Program” 😉

Omeh Favour Chidera - December 3, 2016

I paid through my sponsor since 17tNov 2016 ND I have not been paid

Kelvin - December 6, 2016

Well, I just register and make donation with Crowd Rising on 5th of December 2016. Without introducing anyone. On 6th the following day system give me a down line who make donation to me. Everything happen in 24hr. My joy is, my money is back to my account.

Personally I have done a lot of MLM programs, I haven’t lost my capital. Even if the system want to crashed my have already come back to me.

“Justbeenpaid” is an MLM business that is doing very well few years ago, but the owner sold it out, the people who manage if make it things so difficult for members that cause them a lot of lost. I lost $3000 but this not my capital, but part of my profit.
All I am saying is life is a risk.

esther - December 6, 2016

Denco - December 8, 2016

What if u got ur five nd upgrade to stage two bt ur fives hasn’t gotten any or up to 5 downliners then who gets to pay u on stage 2

Mandela - December 8, 2016

What if am not able to get the 5 people?What will happen to me and the donation i made?

Jonas - December 9, 2016

Honestly am getting confused. I have registered today all the same.

Charles emmy - December 9, 2016

I register on the 6 of December and I have not been paid why

    Charles emmy - December 9, 2016

    After I made my donation I have not been paid

    Rejymimie - December 11, 2016

    Because you need to bring five persons into the business to be able to receive….

Chizoba - December 9, 2016

Am in stage 2 since last week no body have pay me Why

chety - December 10, 2016

Am a nursing mom. Need some extra cash so i registered and not able to bring 5others. Will the system merge me? How long will it take. With all these comments am having doubts.

Michaelking - December 10, 2016

I think what most people fail to understand is that no structure or program is meant to last for ever. You try to make the best of it while it last. Join as many as possible because not all will collapse at the same time.
Accept from the beginning that you could be a victim of one and perhaps a Victor in another and at the same time using your spare money you can afford to lose.
Over the past 1 year, programs like this has raised millionaires.
The good news is this: when the system crashes they don’t go with your money, rather your money remains with a lucky member which could be you or not. This is what you should consider first before joining and this is Why you should join as many as you can afford.
learn from this Quote ” you can never see a rich man who has never lost money But you can early find a poor man who has never lost a dime.” It’s all about risk and the willingness to take it.

dimaria - December 11, 2016

If I have read this trend before registering, I wouldn’t have registered. Bcause the problem is getting 5 people and even after getting the 5 people, the 5 people must still have to go and look for 5 people each. RUBBISH

Chidodgreat - December 12, 2016

If you are a Nigeria and you want to register and get 5 people under you within 1 week, chatt me on WhatsApp 08062421815. I will help you to achieve it. I have spillovers.

Am very serious of what am saying.

Shoko Moses - December 12, 2016

have paid $20 since last 2week up till now have not collect even my money back, this big scams rubbish

Oboma - December 13, 2016

Please i was told that if youre unable to refer people under you… You’ll still get paid how true is that pls i need 2 know…..

bukky - December 14, 2016

I didn’t read all dis before registering cs my sponsor has sweet mouth.Regreting my actions now

Chidodgreat - December 15, 2016

If you are a Nigeria and you haven’t register and want to register and get 5 people under you within 1 week, chatt me on WhatsApp 08062421815. I will help you to achieve it. I have a strong team. There are spillovers.

If you have already registered, don’t contact me.

Why some people are finding it difficult to get there 5 down line to complete their 1st level is because the register with an upline who is not ready to work. Crowdrising is all about team work. “A team work will win”. If you register with my team, you don’t have problem of looking for your 5 down line, i will personally assigne 5 people under you within 5 working days in order to make your first N37,000.

Hi Jesse,
I believe crowdrising is like crowdfunding or mutual aiding one another. Everyone seems to need help one way or the other. That aside, What’s is your $1 to $3000 in 90days business all about? what products do you sell.

    It’s now real crowdfunding when there is a compensation plan attached. Just google with Crowd Funding actually means and then you will know what I Mean 🙂

    My system is in the link in the blog post.

    I hope that helps!
