Is Digital Altitude Legit Or Scam?

The short version: Empower Network On Steroids!


The long version: 

Empower Network, founded by David Sharpe & David Wood in October, 2011, was the largest MLM Pyramid Scheme ever on the Internet. By October 2014, more than 230,000 folks walked through the revolving doors of this pyramid and became members of EN. It’s not legit or not a scam as it is no longer available to work this system. 

Did they make money? Few did, most did not!

You see, in a typical pyramid scheme, there are different “product levels” you will have to buy in, in order to receive the commission for this particular level, and for those below. EN had 5 levels, and the cost ranged from $25 (Entry Level) to $3,500 for the highest level.

In theory, each so called affiliate recruits as many new members at the entry level as they can, then buy into the next higher level. They now receive partial commissions for the recruiting efforts of their recruits, AND yet another, albeit smaller commission for the efforts of the recruits of the member they recruited.

Let’s take a look at the official EN Earnings Disclosure for the period from January 2013 to October 2014. Unfortunately, they don’t disclose the actual number of ACTIVE & INACTIVE members, but you will get the drift.

91% OF ALL AFFILIATES (incl. inactive members) made between $5 and $99 per MONTH, an average of $58 per year

60% OF ALL ACTIVE AFFILIATES made between $33 and $99 per MONTH, an average of $396 per year 

Another 34% OF ACTIVE Affiliates still made below MINIMUM WAGES, with only 4% making $18,000 per year.

Pretty dismal, don’t you agree? 94% af all members DID NOT make enough to get their investment back!!!


Now let’s take a look how the remaining 6% of members made out:

2% OF ALL AFFILIATES did OK, making between $2.500 and $4.999 per month

1% OF ALL AFFILIATES  made between $5,000 and $9,999 per month

LESS THAN 1% made between $10,000 and $24,999 per month

LESS THAN 1% made a whopping $25,000 PLUS per month, with a high of $456,000 per month.

It’s easy to see what kind of scam they were running.

However, by October of 2014, most of the founding members, including one of the Dave scam brothers, had long left EN, some of them, supposedly, “distancing themselves” from EN.

For example James Bonadis, one of the TOP EARNERS at EN, posting on his website, and I quote…

I got sick of shoving lies down the throats of innocent people, at the time I didn’t know they were lies, and got sick of selling the system so other people can sell the system. I call it the “revolving door to hell!” That is what it is…the revolving door to financial ruin…[end quote]

…but then promotes iPAS, the new “EN product“, in an attempt  to revive the dead EN pyramid. By the way,  this turned out to be a failure, just as similar efforts with products like

  • Big Idea Mastermind (Vitaly “Vick” Stritzheus & Mark Soto)
  • iPAS2
  • MOBE
  • Blog Beast
  • Pure Leverage (Joel Therien)

were not able to breathe new life into this dead monster scam.



Enter Digital Altitude Aspire:

what is digital altitudeThe figure head, and supposed creator of Digital Altitude, is Michael Force, retired US Marine. You may have guessed already, Michael was a TOP EARNER at EN, and the creator of another scammy product;, now defunct, received a number of scam reports, and filings with the Internet Complaint Center.

Although Digital Altitude is a pyramid scheme, it is different in TWO ways from EN or all the others out there.

For one, their product prices are totally insane, ranging from $597 (lowest level) to $28,000 (highest level), and second, they have THREE  Affiliate Levels, with differences in commission pay-outs, tier payouts and access to course materials.


You can get started by paying ONE buck (ONE dollar for non-US readers) for a 14-day trial, which requires you to give them your credit card information. You will have access to a handful videos, geared to convince you to join as an affiliate.

To become an affiliate, called an Aspire member, cost you $17, a recurring monthly expense. Then you can choose from THREE Aspire levels.

Digital Altitude Aspire Levels:

Aspire Walker: $37 per month

  • 40% commission
  • 1 tier payout
  • Members Area
  • Start Up Training Videos

Aspire Hiker: $67 per month

  • Up to 50% Commission
  • 2 Tiers of Payout

Aspire Climber: $127 per month

Choose the level that fits your budget and begin to recruit new members. Don’t forget that the monthly cost for the Aspire membership is in top of the $17 monthly affiliate fee. Swell, right? You can figure out for yourself how many new recruits you will need sign up, to be able to purchase one of the ‘products‘, which is a requirement to qualify for commissions. And keep in mind that you get commissions ONLY for the product level you bought into.


What Are The Digital Altitude Products?

I am going to skip all the product details. If you are really interested in finding out, I would like to refer you to their official website, or to any of the fake reviews you can easily find on the Internet. I say ‘fake reviews‘ because most of them are in fact sales pages from affiliates, and you will be hard pressed to find honest reviews. Hint: add the word scam to your search term if you are looking for real reviews.

This is a video based, motivational training, which consists of 12 modules


2) The Rise Membership: $1997 one-time payment

Is Digital Altitude A Scam?

From a strictly legal point of view, I cannot call Digital Altitude a scam. The way the law is written, they aren’t doing anything illegal, although I would contest that their ‘products’ are tangible products people would buy and use, IF found in a store.

Having said that, personally I find the whole darn thing unethical, outrageously over priced, and geared to make a lot of money for the founding members and some early bird members, who can afford to go all-in from the get go. 

Regular folks, you know the ones Michael Force is especially targeting in his Mission Statement…

“Our program was not designed for business people. It was designed for moms, dads, high school graduates, waiters and waitresses, passionate creatives, college dropouts and anyone in between”

…can’t ill afford the high cost AND taking the risk losing this kind of money.


For all the moms, dads, high school graduates, etc., there is a better way to start an online business without any risk. Check out how I got started and read My #1 Recommendation. It may be the right thing for you, and I can guarantee you that it is 100% FREE to find out. Go ahead, and leave your credit card in your wallet, you will NOT need it.


That’s it for today, folks. Thanks for stopping by, and I would love to hear your opinion about my Digital Altitude Review. So, chime in on your way out.

    It has come to the notice of authorities that many unregulated companies are using clone websites to target citizens and hence it has issued a warning to all traders not to deal with any unregulated companies and not to be lured by their false propaganda of unrealistic returns on investments, and not to fall in their trap. Their advertisements can be mouthwatering, but at the end of the day they will run off with your capital too. Thanks to an investor who helped me recovery most of my lost funds.

      If you are losing money instead of making money. Then yes you have become a victim. Usually. But I quite worrying about the money I lost. I write it up as investing in learning the keys of marketing. And it is where I also ran into the likes of the teaching program Wealthy Affiliate which changed my income from negative to 100 percent positive returns. Click this link and you can see how I did it.

    Don’t be a fool twice. Why not join real education programs that teach marketing instead! Right?


      Lodge your funds loss complaints on abstracttechinc website, they will put a call to you/ or send a mail when it has been received. Hurry, they work on 100 cases at once, as they work with a law firm. I was no 79 when i submitted my complaints.

    • Rick

      Its a promise that people wanting to earn income online need education. Otherwise, you risk losing money far quicker than ever making it.

    • Rick

      Real programs that teach you the art of marketing successfully are where most people need to start. But many do not. As they believe adverts that tell them they can get rich just by joining some program. Internet marketing does not work like that. You need training and education first. Of course. Then plan on spending years to get to the top of the success ladder. Not weeks. Not months.

      You can start here to learn the art of being a successful marketing guru…As that is what it takes these days to make money online. Click here: Make a page that leads to value and help others.

    Just last month i lost over 8 BTC to a Bitcoin investment scheme hoping to make profit but this turned out to be a scam. I was so devastated by this situation and needed my BTC recovered.Thankfully I have my business set up at Wealthy Affiliate, So I’m safe from this kind of stuff!
    Thank me later

    • Rick

      So sorry to hear about your issues with Bitcoin. It is why I’ve not invested. What I recommend to all those who want to make money online are just two simple affiliate programs. One is WA and the other is Taking Action Online…Which is a friend of mine who really is honest and does help hundreds of newbies monthly.

    it was everything gone wrong for me, I fell fully for their lies, had my broker handle my account for me which made things get worse but I was out there working almost all hours of the day to make sure I stay stable financially in life and all of a sudden I need cash and they are wasting my time to approve my withdrawal request. At this point, I am beginning to get scared and after a while, they stopped responding to my emails which became worse, i was going nuts until i was able to come across a company that helped me out. They were so helpful and we got back almost all of my money back. I’m never going down that road again.

    • Rick

      So very sorry to hear that. I also had friends who were knee deep financially with DA and even tried to get me to join several times. I wrote the review on them and stayed away.
      Then I also helped hundreds of visitors with them seeing the review so they would stay away. Thankfully we helped so many. But the problem is we cannot reach everyone. No matter how much we would like that. Its why I promote only a few programs today. Wealthy AffiliateAnd Zippo Pay

    I would never blame anyone that has falling for this scums, think about it the world is already unsafe as it is. At the time all I could think of was save for a raining day after so much years of hard work. Wouldn’t say I curse the day my neighbour introduced me to Gt0ptions till this moment thats has been a day I long to never relive. Cant even believe I am saying this but after reading similar comments online I am more than happy to share this with all who care to read. Going back to Gt0ptions within 8 months hurdle after hurdle I had already invested over 200kGBP with profits and bonuses running into a total of just over 390kGBP, until now I was still oblivious to what was going until I attempted to make a withdrawal that was when my 5 months of trauma began certain Mr Greg Dalston kept pressuring me to invest more before I could make a withdrawal, dawning on me that my investment had just been lost and I had been lied I turned to a recovery service another set of crooks, you wouldnt believe they also had me another 70k GBP with the promise of recovering my funds from GT0ptions after 3months of endless request for more money without any result I was hopeless and almost sucidal because my wife had no idea of this at all. Just as I was about to loose all hope in life I came across they helped me recover my funds including profits, from the first payment I made towards my recovery process there was substantial proof shown to me that my recovery was going to be successful and in less than 1week I really had my funds including profits I was marvelled and still am, its a New year and I am sure this bit of information would help all of those in need or even guide all those as well, best of luck to everyone who comes across these and May the light that shineth upon all our life shine in our hearts and mind.
