5 Minute Mogul exposed as a Scam – The 5 Minute No Go!

5 Minutes a day of work to make you tonnes of Money? Sounds tempting ain’t it. Well, hear me out on this guy, Kimball Roundy,  the same guy who founded Spider Web Marketing System (SWM). SWM was founded in 2008, and disregarded in 2011 due to the fact that SWM was exposed as a scam. Instead, he created 5 Minute Mogul System (5MM), an upgraded version of SWM.

5 Minute Mogul uses similar “Sign up for free” technique as seen in Spider Web Marketing to attract new joiners. If you are new to making money online, I can only tell you this: “There are no free things in life, people create system to sell and that is the fact.” The only difference between 5 Minute Mogul and Spider Web Marketing is that 5MM provides just a little more tools and training.

How do I know if 5 Minute Mogul is a scam?

To spot a scam is easy, they all seem similar in a way or another. They will offer you step-by-step guidance through the product and each step will lead you to another sign up process (This is where your credit card comes in). They will explain to you why you need to pay for it and bla bla bla, sales talk, bla bla bla, scam alert!

This is exactly what 5 Minute Mogul is all about. Let me walk you through the 4 steps of the 5 Minute Mogul “Game Board” and show you exactly what I mean.

The 5 Minute Mogul “Game Board”:

5 Minute Mogul Scam Review Gameboard

Step 1: Setting up your Pure Leverage Account – Product 1 offer, the scam bell ringing!

Pure Leverage, an auto-responder which cost $24.95/mth. Kimball Roundy will explain to you that you need this account in order to generate income stream.

What Pure Leverage will do is they will automatically send out pre-drafted emails to those people whom you have referred to 5 Minute Mogul, in hope to convert those people into paid members of 5 Minute Mogul.

What you do not know is that Kimball Roundy will get a commission from Pure Leverage if you sign up for a Pure Leverage account.

Step 2: Endless free traffic – Really? Lets see.

5 Minute Mogul scam review bannerThis step practically gives you banners and sample emails for you to share in your webpage, blogs, facebook or any other social media you can think of.

This step is totally free (like any other systems) and the reason for that is they do not want to seem like they are taking money from you every single step.

Now, I am just thinking, if I am a total beginner to this “internet” thing, how am I going to setup a website or blog to use the banners? Even if I manage to set up a website, how do I drive the traffic to my website? There is just no training for that. And what if I do not have a facebook account or any other social media accounts? How am I going to utilise this set of tools?

Step 3: Done-For-You Paid Traffic – A lazy man’s haven?

This step is about paying Kimball Roundy and his “team” for generating traffic for you from  the “best” sources he have found.

He captures your attention right there. A beginner who doesn’t have any knowledge whatsoever to build a website, generate traffic, etc, will be attracted to this. All you have to do is pay for the traffic program (as seen in the picture on the right).

But up to this point, I do not know what is the percentage of commission I get for each person who signs up for paid packages in 5 Minute Mogul. All I do know is that I have to give money to Kimball Roundy.

Kimball Roundy mentions that the traffic that he generate for you comes from facebook, soloadsagency.com, Bannerads, pay-per-view networks.

Behind the scene, all Kimball Roundy needs to do is to get the money from you (a huge sum actually) and pay a certain amount of money to those traffic generating channels and pockets the rest.

Imagine the cost for subscribing to these traffic generating channels are just USD 1,000 (this figure is for illustrative purpose) and you pay $300, $500 or $1,000. Did you realise that you are not the only one paying for the paid traffic? He pockets the remaining money and sits back and enjoy the “5MinuteMogul” lifestyle.

Well, to give him the credit, what he said was true, to let the professional do their job. Kimball Roundy is not the real professional in finding the traffic for you, but he is the professional who finds other professional to get the traffic for you. Sorry for being a little sarcastic here but this is what it is.

Basically what I am saying is that why would I want to pay Kimball Roundy money when I know I can get the services done elsewhere at a cheaper price?

He kept saying that the traffic is limited but does limited traffic make sense at all or is it just a marketing gimmick to create the “want” in you? Well, believe what you may but I am strongly against the “limited traffic” as there are no such thing.

That’s not it! 5MinuteMogul have this portion where they want to lock you in for a monthly subscription for traffic. Are you insane? I thought $300, $500 or $1,000 is like a one-time thing that generates traffic for me every month. Now I realise that I need to pay so much money for monthly traffic.

What happens if you are a normal wage employee who makes $2,000 per month and wanted to find a second income, the amount of money you are paying for online traffic is like 15%, 25% or 50% of your gross income. Will you be that insane to do this? Wait there’s more! Step 4, where there are more paid packages…….

Step 4: Maximizing Your Earning Potential – Here it comes, the BIG Plan!

There are 3 different packages for you to choose from, depending on the packages you choose, you are able to make 3, 4 or 10 times of the money you are making using the paid traffic in step 3.

  • Package 1: Apprentice Membership Program at $37/mth
  • Package 2: Industrialist Membership Program at $97/mth or one-time payment of $497
  • Package 3: Tycoon Membership Program at $300 (4 time payment = $1,200) or one-time payment of $997.

Allow me to explain how the “BIG” plan works (An MLM Setup)

The 5MinuteMogul system have a total of 4 infinity lines, an infinity line is like a long queue of people waiting to sign up for the membership, each person who has just been introduced to the system will line up in this infinity line.

5 Minute Mogul scam review scam alert 3In order to jump the queue, you have to sign up to either one of the packages.  Once you sign up as an Apprentice Member, you will join the queue of the “Apprentice” infinity line. If you sign up as a industrialist member, you will join the queue of the “Industrialist” infinity line and the same goes for the Tycoon Membership.

You will receive bonuses based on the number of shares you have. Each person below you in the same infinity line will earn you 3 shares and each person above you will earn you 1 share. 5 Minute Mogul scam review scam alert 2

For example, you are the first person who joins the queue, and you have 4 person below you, you will have 12 shares (3 share x 4 person below you).

If you are the second person who join the infinity line and you have 3 people below you, you will have 10 shares (1 share x 1 person above you + 3 shares x 3 person below you). Get the picture?

So depending on the total revenue that 5MinuteMogul makes, it will be shared among the 3  infinity lines (Apprentice, Industrialist and Tycoon). So basically, this system is just like any other Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company out there, it is just a different setup.

Limited Membership – What happens if you are the last member?

5-minute-mogul-limited-membership-bsKimball Roundy mentions that he is limiting the number of people to sign up for the 5MinuteMogul packages.

  • Maximum of 500 Tycoon Members
  • Maximum of 1,000 Industrialist members
  • Maximum of 1,500 Apprentice Members

I am not a genius but I can tell you this system doesn’t work when all the memberships are taken up.

No new Memberships means no further income. If there’s no further income, there will be no distribution. Think about it, where do 5MM generate their income from? YOU. Basically, you are giving money to people who joined before you.

How will the last member of each group (Apprentice, Industrialist, Tycoon) recover the money he/she have invested? What if the last member of the group leaves the membership? The second last member suffers and leaves after a while and the trend goes on. Think carefully about it and share with me your thoughts on this.

My sincere advice to you

There are too many scams online and you shouldn’t wander around alone. Stop wasting your precious hard-earned money on scams that promise to make money for you with little to no effort.

Success is curved out of your hard work and perseverance, do not let someone else do the work for you because you will never know if they are screwing with you.

My Secret to Online Sucess


  1. Just curious if anyone else read his history? Its sad and hard to believe . And kind of suspicious. So weird both his brother and his wife died and his brother was into technical but theres no connection to k b4 that. And than to use ur brothers death as a marketing to get sympathy and scam people? Its like people feel bad ans are probably afraid to question him. He fooled my own brother a few years back and he lost money he doesnt have. Iwish the police would lookinto him more.

  2. I have been a part of that scam. If I hadn’t taken legal steps against Kimball, I would have never seen my money. Luckily cashed out $450 before he shuttled it down and took all money that he scammed people out of.

    1. So sorry that you have to experience this! How has it been since then? Were you able to find a legitimate program? If not, and if you are still interested, maybe you can take a look at this.

  3. Deon Christie says:

    As much as it pains me to admit, these kind of scammers make big money! Why? Well, your first step to a sale is addressing a need right? So, what greater need than money painted as a Tropical Island with a Bentley in a few days? Always remember that Success is tiny objective steps in the right direction, there is no such thing as a Giant Leap…

  4. hello everyone i am a big victim of the mess done by that criminal Kimballroundy and its 5minutemogul system. i joined as an early bird paid for my $999.99 also but a solo ad of $200 and another one of $50 as a tycoon partner but do you know what? i am also just shedding tears while i am writing you this that all my expenses on 5minute mogul was totally fruitless. My $200 traffic was not fully dilivered. for $200 traffic i got only 90 leads which never even subscribed at all to make me any $1 at all. My other $50 traffic was not delivered at all which i have been asking for refund no reply has been given till now. as a paid tycoon ($999.99) i did not receive any bonus pool but i was only paid $49 for bonus pool commission since 2012. Doyou guys understand my pain,not only that i also paid for Pureleverage for 1 good year under him (Kimbal roundy) as my upline. nothing to show for it. from all the expenses made from 5minute mogul i only got $49 as bonus pool commission nothing more nothing less. Now minus all the of the expenses i spent from $49 you will discover that Kimball Roundy is worth called a thief, criminal and worthy to be punished beyond measure. i requested for the refund of $50 solo ad payment that was not delivered he rfuse to refund my $50, i also request forthe refund of my $999.99 paid as a tycoon he refused to reply. So friend what do youthink shall be done against ill humane, carnivorous beast called Kimball Roundy. Does he actually knows he is dealing with the public. he wants to use peoples money to enjoy the rich lifestyle so that others can be crying. he does not know anything that God will make pay with his blood and children for making others cry so that him and is family could enjoy life. he will surely get his reward for all of the pain he has caused me and others and theo robbery he has robbed me even when i joined the spider web system i fell to his rubbish trap i spent almost $500 no single return on investment. He promised me that 5minute mogul is not going to be the same as spider web system he will surely be paid back. thank you.

    Hi Herman,
    Good day! Kindly disregard the previous message sent as it was sent incorrectly. Your refund is still under verification with our accounting department and should be processed the soonest once approved.
    Thank you and hoping for your continued patience as we complete the process.
    Thank you,
    5MM Support

    Just to show you folks how my situation is going with 5MM,
    today is June 15/2015 and nothing yet

    1. Wow! This is an eye opener. I always believed that 5MM is a scam but I didn’t know it is that bad.

  7. The Bare Naked Scam is the best webpage I could have ever stumbled upon.
    I also fell for Roundys scam back in April, It did not take long to realize what I had wasted my money on.
    I quickly requested the refund right away, even though Kimball Roundy has a refund policy, and a support team advertised I even have a phone # to call support on, It will do nothing for you AT ALL.
    Several of my tickets are “open” still, I requested my refund within hrs of purchusing that junk and the first ticket was “closed” right away. I sent off another explaning what I thought of the support for “closing” my ticket without my refund, an appoligy email reasuring me it was “open” again and someone would contact me within 24-72 hrs.
    That was 1 of 2 responses I had recived that were not the automated responce you would get right after submitting a ticket. It is 5 months and counting since that request was submited and I constantly remind them I am still here and want my money. I was pissed and sent off an email explaning to Roundy he had hope we never cross paths anytime soon and if we do I am going to bitch slap him so hard that it will leave a knot on his grandkids heads, My 2 of 2 responds was recived shortly after that informing me that the content of my email was unacceptable and that could have me removed from membership compleatly, and my email was being sent to the higher ups for review. ????? I have not been a member since the day I paid for and quit asking for my money back. During some investigating into Roundy and his scams I came accrossed some others who are also unable to get a refund, only they are out thousands of dollars each. Some had invested before the launch of 5 minute mogul and got nothing in return. I am glad my loss is a fraction of what some have experianced with Kimball Roundy. I will continue messing with Roundy only becouse I feel most people just role over and take it from him which allows his scumbag A$$ to keep screwing people over. Thanks for the link to Wealthy Affiliate, I am glad to see there is a few honest / helpful people with real programs to offer the masses.
    Thank You keep up the awsome work Bare Naked Scams,
    Jeremiah Kengle

    1. Thanks Jeremiah! Its really nice to receive a compliment from you. Thanks for sharing your experience here as well. I believe your experience really do help to warn people about 5 Minute Mogul. I heard of a few complaints about the program with regards to the refund but I didn’t know that it was that bad. I agree that most people will give up on getting a refund because it is not worth the time and I really do sympathies with people who have lost a few thousand dollars on the program. Hence, this is my project to inform people of this program and hopefully no one else will need to suffer such losses any more.

      Once again, I would like to thank you for sharing your experience Jeremiah! Your comment definitely do add value to this review.

      I hope you have found your way to your success.

  9. Thank you for your thorough review. I have been researching work from home opportunities and I found this one and after I submitted my info they ask for credit card info for a subscription. I was done right there. There’s a few survey sites that are legit, but they’re tedious. I’ve also just joined Instant Rewards Network. I’m in love with it. I signed up a week ago and I’ve been mainly focusing my time on research and learning how to market myself. This company truly doesn’t charge for sign-up, they don’t charge for training, there’s no software you need to buy to make it work. They give you a free landing page (Which I don’t like, I made my own) And they also help keep track of your follow-ups and leads. Have you ever reviewed this company before? If not, you should. I’d be curious to see what you think of it. I truly believe I’ll be making money once I get my marketing plan up and going. And once I do, I’m super excited to share the opportunity.

    1. Thanks Terri! I will check it out soon and will revert back to you when I have done a review on them.

    Jack, thank you for the lengthy commentary on 5minutemogul. Simply said, so many of us who are new to this interest to get into the internet to legally and honestly make some income to pay bills and be responsible, is marred by moguls who seem to always have the same bait: it’s free, it’s easy, it’s yours!!! Thanks again for your help. I will read your link and press on. People like you are necessary and are life changers.
    Richard Z.

    1. Thanks Richard! It is because of people like you who appreciates what I am doing that keeps me going. There is always a bait, nothing in life is free, especially on the internet. There’s always a hidden agenda. So you really have to do your research before joining or buying a product or program. If you really want to learn how to make honest money online, I know of a proven method, only if you are interested I will share it with you. Feel free to email me at [email protected]

    1. Hi Jermaine,

      I’m glad you found my review and I’m glad you got out of 5 Minute Mogul early. In this day and age there are so many scams online, you can barely find any honest opportunity on the internet. I have reviewed so many products on the internet and found one very common characteristic of all scams, they always promise that you can make money online almost instantly with their system. Well the truth is there are no such system around on the internet, and if there is, everyone would be rich.

      I sympathize with you and I really want to help you. I have scour the internet and found one place you can actually learn how to make money online. You can join for the free trial and to try it for yourself. No credit cards required.

  12. Hey Jack

    These SCAMS keep coming along one after another just like buses and more and more seem to be created all the while. Jeez! Reading this review, if working just 5 minutes per day was enough to make us some serious wonga, we would all be millionaires by now, driving around in super cars and wallets over flowing with cash, ha ha!

    It’s a dream that’s never gonna happen unless we work hard at something and see it through long enough for it to really happen. I believe that Wealthy Affiliate can make dreams come true if we follow the training, stick with it and work hard at our websites.


    1. Hey Neil! Thanks for stoppping by again! Thats true, if life is that easy, everyone will be millionaires. Working hard is one thing but working smart is a whole new level and Wealthy Affiliate ensures that we do both. Good luck to your website as well.

      Thanks again Neil!

  13. Screw these stupid spammers scammers etc lol. I hope they get punished for stealing people’s money for no reason just to make a pyramid scheme lol

    1. Hi Jessica! Thanks for your comment! You are right, these people ought to be punished. I hope you did not get sucked into 5 Minute Mogul.

  14. Hello!

    I did it. I run into that shitty scum hole named “5minutemogul” and promoter, tipcal horny guy (Kimball Roundy) who claims he will rescue your misery like a John Wayne rescue Indians. I paid 1˘$ to enter. Shure, I knew I will be robbed on next step.
    And to enter the misery you pay next 24$ for a mass pollution of worthless emails. (there is a another scum of email polluter – who considers like “you will win a battle to score more stupidnes”) Video doesn t help you. In fact all site does NOT help you all.

    Jack! your blog and your review tells everything about score 10 of 10!

    1. Hi Hallmay,

      Thank you so much for your comment as well as to rate my review a perfect score! I am glad you got out of 5MinuteMogul at an early stage. There are so many similar scams out there on the Internet and I sincerely hope that you will not bump into any other “get rich quick with no effort kinda scams”.

      Unfortunately, I’ve managed to only find a few of the good ones off the Internet. To list the best, I would recommend you to read my review on my #1 Recomended business opportunity and Internet Marketing Course.

      Once again Hallmay, thank you so much for your kind comment.

      P.S. Great Website you have!

  15. You are right, there is no free lunch, this is the truth .
    Moreover, Their e-mail are very troublesome email

    1. Hi Shawn, you are absolutely right. I received 18 emails from 5 Minute Mogul just this month itself. Most of the emails links you to a bunch of videos that do not provide you with quality information to start your own online business, all it does is to persuade you to join their system.

      Thanks for leaving a comment Shawn!
