One of the most common scams in the business opportunity world is the health and wellness network marketing product-based pyramid scheme. This a scam where ridiculous claims are made about the benefits of the over priced products and where the income made is primarily from pyramiding payments from the distributors for those products. I have received many requests to look into Alliance In Motion Global. Here is what I have found out about this company.

Alliance In Motion Global Inc. No. 1 MLM Company in the world.
(The grammar problems above are there, because I am using direct quotes from their website.)
What Alliance In Motion Global Actually are…
Alliance In Motion Global was formed by Dr. Eduardo Cabantog, Francis Miguel and John Asperin in September 2005.
The company distributes and markets food supplements manufactured by Nature’s Way USA, and premium blended beverages. AIM Global is the only direct sales company accredited by Nature’s Way USA as its exclusive distributor for Direct Sales in the Philippines.
Alliance In Motion Global is not the number 1 MLM company in the world. They are not even in the top 10.
Amway’s Alexa global ranking is 17,480.
Alliance In Motion Global’s Alexa global ranking is 148,056.
Alliance In Motion Global demands your loyalty when you join their company as a distributor.
Distributors shall remain loyal to the company and its policies and are not allowed to join any other Multi‐Level Marketing (MLM) companies….
All members are strictly enjoined to observe humility and respect towards fellow members, officers and employees of the company, by not committing directly or indirectly any acts, which are but not limited to rudeness, disrespect and discourtesy. – Source Allianceinmotion.com
To become an Alliance In Motion Global distributor you must purchase one of their Global Packages. You can purchase from 1-7 positions in the compensation plan when you purchase your Global Package. They recommend you purchase 7 positions.
1 position: 7,980 Philippine Peso ($179.51)
3 positions: 23,940 Philippine Peso ($538.53)
5 positions: 39,990 Philippine Peso ($899.57)
7 positions: 55,860 Philippine Peso ($1256.57)– Source Allianceinmotion.org
1,800 Philippine Peso ($40.53) Monthly in product or gift certificate purchases is required to receive Uni‐level and Stair Step commissions.
In my opinion, the recommendation to purchase multiple positions in your own down-line is a clear sign of a pyramid scheme. This is a common practice in binary compensation plans.

When you go to many representatives websites you will find they make therapeutic claims. In fact, they make 100 of them.
The compensation plan for Alliance In Motion Global is a combination of a Binary, Uni‐level and Stair Step plan.
Distributors can earn by simple retail sales of ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC. Products. Distributors have a lifetime twenty five percent 25% discount on all products. This is called the Distributor Price (DP). They may then sell the products at a higher price, which should not be below the Suggested Retail Price (SRP), pursuant to the One Price Policy.
For every new person that a Distributor sponsors, he/she earns P500 and 1,200 Product Points.
Matched Sales Bonus
This is also known as the Binary System. Upon becoming a Distributor, the latter can form two (2) groups under his account, the Left Group and the Right Group. For each group, there can be several levels. To earn from this system, each level from the Left Group and each level from the Right Group must have a total of 1,200 points, which then reflects 2,400 points when combined. A Distributor immediately earns a Matched Sales Bonus of P 1,500 for every 2,400 combined group points.
Every 5th Matched Sale (pair) entitles the Distributor to a Gift Cheque (GC) for products instead of cash to maintain product sales.
For this system, it is important for the company to maintain a balance in both recruiting new Distributors and selling its products. A Distributor is not allowed to simply pull numerous recruits into the business and earn solely on the basis of the number of people he or she sponsors. This is why ALLIANCE IN MOTION GLOBAL, INC. utilizes the “Flush‐out” system. The “flush‐out” system works by allowing only sixteen (16) matched sales per day, divided eight (8) matched sales for two (2) time intervals or cycles.
16 Matched Sales per Day = (8 Matched Sales per Cycle) x (2 cycles per day)
1st Cycle : 12:00 am – 11:59am
2nd Cycle : 12:00pm – 11:59pm
A Distributor is not allowed to credit more than eight (8) matched sales for each cycle. Entering a ninth (9th) match within the same cycle will result to a “flush‐out” of all the points accrued from the ninth (9th) match and he/she then goes back to zero points. However, the eight (8) matched sales will not be affected and will be converted to income immediately.
Under this system, a Distributor can have several levels or down lines. From the product sales of each of his or her down lines, he or she earns five percent (5%) of product points. However, a Distributor can only earn up to his tenth (10th) level.
The special feature of this scheme is the Dynamic Compression. This mechanism ensures that qualified Distributors will earn bonuses on all 10 levels without breakage to the inactive or non‐performing Distributors within the earning levels. If among the 10 levels, one (1) level is inactive, the latter will not be counted as a level. Instead, the eleventh (11th) level will take the place of the tenth (10th) level, and so on.
A product purchase is required of any combination or product gift certificate (GC) that will have an equivalent point value of .3334 in order to obtain the UNI‐LEVEL income of 5% on commission points up to the 10th level. Maintenance of any current month should be done one (1) month prior and the income will be released every 15th of the following month.
Stair Step Bonus
The benefit of becoming an Executive Distributor is the percentage of income commission that he or she derives from the total sales volume of his or her down lines.
POSITION /REQUIREMENT /BENEFIT
Silver Executive (SE) / Accumulation of 10 group reorder points / 10% commission
Gold Executive (GE) / Accumulation of 100 group re‐order points / 20% commission
Global Ambassador (GA) / Accumulation of 1,000 group re‐order points / 30% commission
Royalty Bonus– Source Allianceinmotion.com
When a Global Ambassador’s down lines achieve the Global Ambassador rank, he/she gets an additional 2% percent of income from the total group sales volume of the Global Ambassador and Non‐Global Ambassador down lines. The income is limited to five (5) Global Ambassador down lines referred to as the first to the fifth generation Global Ambassadors.
Excessive levels in a downline is another sign participants are expected to sell primarily to their downline, rather than to the general public. This makes it an exploitive money transfer scheme, or product-based pyramid scheme.– Source Mlm-thetruth.com
Is Alliance In Motion Global Scam or Not?
In my opinion, Alliance In Motion Global is a product-based pyramid scheme. By having you sell high priced toothpaste and other consumer products, they virtually guarantee that your primary customers will be other people joining the business opportunity. They demand your loyalty to participate in this scam. You are not an independent business owner with this company. They control who you can work with and what you can say to company members. Each individual who profits does so primarily from the payments of others who are themselves making payments in order to obtain their own profit. Avoid the Alliance In Motion Global Scam.
