SEC ADVISORY

The Commission has received information that individuals or group of persons representing ALIFELONG MARKETING AND SERVICES, INC. are enticing the public to invest in the said entity. ALIFELONG claims that it is an advertising/marketing company having clientele based abroad. It guarantees to its members significant gains from their One Thousand and Five Hundred Peso (P1,500) initial investment by buying “clicking accounts” or by simply obtaining referrals.

Based on information gathered by the Enforcement and Investor Protection Department (EIPD), ALIFELONG requires its members to sign up through its website by clicking a sponsored link and purchasing an activation code worth One Thousand Five Hundred pesos (P1,500) using either bitcoin or by depositing money in certain bank accounts.

ALIFELONG claims its members may earn in 6 ways:

  1. Sign up Reward – The member will earn Three Hundred Pesos (P300) upon registration;
  2. Sponsoring an Affiliate Reward – The member will earn One Hundred Pesos (P100) every person he/she sponsors into the system. There are no limitations as to how many the member intends to sponsor;
  3. Youclick Programme – all members can opt-in to join this program and can earn Five Hundred Pesos (P500) daily or Two Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P2,500) given that they have completed the click threshold of 5,000 clicks per day for 5 business days only. The activation code to join this program is One Thousand Five Hundred pesos (P1,500) which they can get from their upline. Upon reaching the maximum earnings of Two Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P2,500) the youclick account will cease to function or be deactivated. The member may purchase another activation code, and he/she can do the clicking again to earn Two Thousand Five Hundred (P2,500) and up to 15 youclick account activation.
  4. Match Sales Reward – The member will earn P150 for every match in the binary structure. The maximum reward per account is Four Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P4,500) equivalent to 30 matches per day.
  5. Sponsorship Level Reward – The member will earn Forty Pesos (P40) on his/her first level and Ten Pesos (P10) on the 2nd up to the 10th level of the binary structure.
  6. Leveling Bonus – The member will earn Four Hundred Pesos (P400) for every match in each level down to the 12th level of the binary structure.

The recruitment of investor members under the guise of sponsoring a person into the system is likewise considered a form of investment solicitation or a sale of securities. The offering or sale of securities to the public without a permit or license from the Commission is a violation of Section 8.1 of the Securities Regulation Code (SRC).
