Profit Bank - A BIG TIME SCAM!!

Profit Bank Scam
I’m not a naive person, I’ve just said to myself to try one of those so-called “automated click –and-earn-money” programs and see if that actually works. In consequence, I’ve bought Profit Bank Software, produced by Mack Michaels and the conclusion was: a really big time scam!!

So, let’s start and see why is Profit Bank a scam:

1. Profit Bank software doesn’t generate real traffic!

The first thing that Mack Michaels (the owner of Profit Bank) is saying to you is that you’ll be making sales over night with his program. Everyone knows that for generating sales, you must have traffic in the first place. Well, this software doesn’t generate real traffic: in two weeks, it generated for me only 2 visits for my link set-up with the software!! I’ve done much much better with my own affiliate campaigns (in two weeks I was able to generate over 100 visits for my main affiliate links, without using a software like Profit Bank, only simple techniques). So, Profit Bank can’t generate traffic for the link that provides for you!

2. Profit Bank doesn’t generate sales!

Another big lie that Mack Michaels sells you is that you’ll be making sales over night. This is not true even in two weeks. Because obviously: the soft doesn’t generate traffic implies that you can not make any sale. I can now say it to hear everyone: Mack Michaels LIES about the sales, and He Lies Big Time!

3. They don’t give you valuable information about promoting your link

After I’ve bought the program and I’ve logged in, Mack Michaels only said that he and his associates will promote my set-up link on sites with great visibility, and I’ll make a lot of sales because of that. But they didn’t give any depth information about the promoting strategies, about your link visibility and about their methods of increasing traffic. Much more, they invite you to make online marketing with Profit Bank, and this is in contradiction with what they said before my buying, that the marketing will not be necessary. They invite you to do what the software was assumed to do. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a hard worker, but when you say a software does something, and you sell it to me, I expect that the software makes what you said before I bought it.

Remember, this is a scam technique: when someone baits you to buy a product saying that he’ll promote you on a great traffic generator sites and after buying he doesn’t give any relevant and in depth information about how he’ll gonna promote you, that means that his product is a SCAM! In marketing terms, Mack Michaels only does this thing: he uses the intention and the need of the potential customer who searches a method to make money online, he baits him and he doesn’t offer any real promoting!

Should I say more?
BIG TIME SCAM is the real description for Profit Bank of Mack Michaels!

4. The ugly technique of this scammer Mack Michaels

He acts like a friendly dog – he’s playing with you when you’re buying Profit Bank, he gains your trust and then, when you’re on the sales page of his software, before you’re making the purchase, he tries to sell a membership of his site: Maverick Money Mackers. And he does that with aggressiveness, on two-three sales pages before purchasing.

Be aware: when someone gains the trust of a potential customer and then use that for aggressively selling another products of him, it’s clear that this is a scam! A real marketer is natural when he tries to sell something, he doesn’t force you to do anything. To gain someones trust is ok, but then to sell a product that doesn’t work (like is doing Mack Michaels) is simply called a SCAM!

5. Conclusions

-Profit Bank Software doesn’t deliver any valuable traffic for the link that you’ve set up with this program; you don’t have traffic, you don’t have sales – is that simple!

-Mack Michaels, the owner of Profit Bank software, use aggressive techniques to stimulate people buying a membership to another project, while he’s selling you Profit Bank; this is not a real marketing technique, it’s a method to make you pay for something that doesn’t really work!

So, only three words about Profit Bank Software: BIG TIME SCAM!!!

  1. Hi, I agree with your finding. Unfortunately I came across your posting / this page, about a day too late. I see no "software" of any kind inside of Profit Bank or any of the related pages of his site. I will gladly mail my support desk tickets to anyone who wants to view my questions to mack Michaels and his "support team". I will also bookmark THIS page, to see if anyone follows this. :::: Anyone doubting my abilities to "execute" the said software OR / follow the "system" - is absolutely correct - I have not seen ANY such software || only pages with links that lead to more&more online page presentations, WITH an "Add to Cart" button. So how long do you pay before you get anything of real value ? Whatever is on the pages inside the "Members Club", can all be found searching Google. And one of his claims is that one does not need Google. Fact is, you do - to find scammers and "promoters of crap" like him, and I can add another 20 names to his. I REALLY want to make an online income, but not be sold on misrepresentation and re-packaged nonsense.

    As I said, I will watch this post, and respond to anyone willing to make contact... promise I CAN / WILL / SHALL keep, unlike Mr Michaels !!!

    ---PS I corrected the typos.... - I was furious for a minute there....

    1. Hi Cristian Velan,

      I also have been suckered by previous scams online from March 2013 hoping to make money with emails that flood my email inbox. I lost nearly $20,000 with scams and now have credit card debt. However, I learned a valuable lessons. The lessons I learned is NEVER trust anyone whatever they say online. Last do your research like review any product you plan on purchasing. Thank you so much Cristian Velan for taking your time writing this review you saved me and my time. I will be writing a posting a review on my blog to help alert others. Thank you. If you have any comment at my E-mail Mark Sprague

    2. Richjanitor and Payzeno our big time scammers. You have to have a lot of money to join this club or whatever you want to call it so look for something else! They won't even ask for all your information from childhood on it seems like so run!!

  2. Hello, sorry to hear that you've purchased already. Unfortunately, there are no sincere reviews about profit bank on the net, just mine and a video of another person.

    If you wanna earn real money, it's a lot to work. You have actually to learn SEO, to learn a little programming before starting promoting products (if you wanna promote very good affiliates programs), etc. Or you can work online on the site that I've posted a link in the final of my profit bank scam review - it's free to join there, I'm working on that site and they already paid me for a project-based job. It's a lot of work, but is worthwhile.

    So, if you know people that want to purchase this scam - profit bank, give them the link of my post and they'll see the reality behind the scene

  3. So many newcomers online seem to all make the same mistake , if it seems to good to be true it probably is. I don't believe there is such a thing out there as EASY automated income. Yes you absolutely can make money online but it takes commitment, dedication, understanding and the right product. Unfortunately there is so much crap online putting stars in peoples eyes they are sold purely on the dream. The internet is an exciting frontier for all kinds of marketers, but just like the wild west there are plenty of bandits...... Take care out there Malcolm Robinson

    1. lot of idiots. I saw red flags as soon as I saw the snake oil video. 98% of most programs are pure crap and will not last. Why do people fall for there BS. I only lost money in one program Zeekreward. There is so much scams out there and I see so many people get burned and some will never do the internet programs again from these snake oil sales people and owners.

      Wake up and never join a company unless you throughly check it out first. Also if have to recuit a lot to make money that not good either. Most people are lazy, get rich quick people and lot of bad sponsors that lie to get you in there program. Then You never here from them again. Sad sad sad!!

  4. Hello Malcolm, very interesting what you're saying. I think, like you, that understanding the economic process behind the curtains is the basis for everithing you want to do for an income. That's why I chose this profit bank program, too see the inside and to discuss argumented why not such a software can't possibly work. The dreams like easy cash, like you say, shouldn't exist, and it's important that people know why these dreams won't work

  5. You gained my trust and then advertised your product... right after you warned me not to fall for this trap... I'm confused...

  6. I've put a link to a site with real work to do, with real project-based jobs. Working is the way to make money, not the scams, this is the conclusion

  7. Just say Hello to all, and offcourse especially to the owner on this blog. What I can say that this blog is very vital it is very helpful in my blog too :)
    do check it

    Thank you add comment to :)

  8. Thank you very much for your comment, I'll open also a new blog about details about the industry in wich I work, that will be e very useful handbook for someone who wants to make money working for real

  9. Hi Cristian, your article was written in March 2011. The time has lapsed so much, and now is almost Christmas time. Have you been keeping up with the later research on Profit Bank. I wish to know if anyone who has bought this software that could have earned well by now. If this could have happened, then it will not be claimed as scam anymore. I am looking at all possibilities to join Mack Micheals’ programs until I found your blog. It got me startle a little, leaving me at a cross road. I am not sure now to follow your advice since you wrote this article long time ago. I do wish to see your updating; and whether you still have the same opinion on Mack Micheals. Merry Christmas

  10. I am glad I looked for a second opinion and i thought i recognised Mack from his maverick program. Most of these guys hype a lot and I must
    Mack in his profit bank was brilliant in the way
    he got people to focus on how how fast they could set up a website- Even if if you could set up a website in half a sec, what's the point if it fails to deliver traffic and the moolah- it's still a dead duck. Guys-I would appreciate your feedback on my blog at

  11. People call them scams because of all hype and the wild "promises" they make on their sales website. And most people are disappointed that respected marketers lie to them on their sales website.

    A scam is also when a struggling marketer invests his or her time to work on the product purchased only to find out it does not live up to its hype.

    It doesn't always have to be about being able to get back your money from ClickBank. Some folks go by with just pennies in their pockets so a refund can really set them back.

    While I'm here, if anyone is considering purchasing Commission Shops: Don't. It's just a waste of time.


    And oh yeah- Most marketers are only interested in one thing., Their own pockets.

  12. I use Millionaire Society Myself and Have found it to be a great membership. I constantly use the 100,000 visitors in 1 hour to get tons of leads and sales. I created a blog on it, check it out for more information and what to expect with your membership.

    1. Your a genuine spamming idiot. For those of you who don't know, Millionaire Society is another one of Mack Michaels scam sites. The guy has lots of them.

  13. Am glad that i got to know about this before i opted in..Thanks for the great info,for me Power Lead is the way to go,

  14. Thank you all for your comments, I too was taken for 20K over the course of my early start with online marketing beginning in March 2013. I was naive and had the big dreams of making money only to fall victim for the push button software, MLM businesses that give you hype and now I do my research. Profit bank hit my email the other day and they say it is a new product launch here is the email I got:

    1. One quick post I forgot, Does anyone know of anyone who could be a great mentor that could help me online, I am looking for one. Please email me mark sprague at: Thanks so much.

    2. This is very interesting, Christian posted this review about profit bank way back in March 2011,
      Today is 27th April 2014, in the new marketing video of profit bank "Mack Michael" is now presented as "Thomas Black" the owner of profit bank, I almost fell for it if it wasn't for a Google search review and this blog came up. Thank you, your effort still paying off by saving as many as will dare to check reviews before they jump in

    3. Yep, that's what these scammers do. They just run something till it dies, put it away while they run some other scams, and then a couple of years later pull out the old one, redress it a little and run it again to a whole new batch of eager salivating newbies.

  15. I am a mom and I have a 5 years old daughter, so I can understand that for any mother how difficult it is to look after her children and going out for job. That is the reason I prefer to work from home that allows me to look after my child and make me independent as I can earn from home and stay updated with today world. If you are also in same situation I have a suggestion for you from here you can learn how to make money or get good earning from home based job, I am confident it will be of Great Value to you and yours. Respectfully, Enjoy:

    Wow am I glad I checked around and found your review, I was looking at the "new" video link I received from an email with Thomas Black aka Mack and watched the video on this SCAM and just wanted to salute you for your honest post, most Scammers also post reviews of their own products and blast them all over so when someone tries to do any research they are just redirected back to the Scammers capture pages. Thank You! I am also in search of a good way to generate an income online without being scammed. I currently work two jobs to make ends meet and cannot afford to get ripped off with the latest HYPE.
    R. Hunter,

  17. Just read your review. Thanks for all the hardwork you put into writing this review. I also write reviews and am glad to see that there are others out there righting reviews with truth not just writing positive reviews to try to sell products.

    Once again thanks for this review and keep up the good work!


  18. This blog information is so good !!!

  19. March 2015 and "Thomas Black" is still offering Profitbank as new and first time for sale. Actually my Bullguard Internet Securtiy warned against going to the site because it was promoted by spam techniques (email from Rich Janitor Mike). But I was curious.

  20. Do not get involved with Rich Janitor Mike Period! It is a flat out scam and is owned by Ankur Patel along with Rich Dishwasher and The Rat Race Assassin. Rich Janitor keeps emailing with scam after scam opportunities. Forex Trading, Profit Bank, Digital Network Empire and he has a software to compliment it doing mobile for $97.00. Beware!

  21. Isn't it amazing how long these creeps can keep their scams going. I have been working online for over 15 years and I keep seeing the same scams re-emerging year after year. For anyone looking for help to make a real income online please don't hesitate to contact me at: All my advice is free and I won't try to solicit you into anything.
    Why am I doing this for free? because I am mad about hard working people getting ripped off!
    What do I want in return?
    For you to help me spread the word about what all of us can do to make an honest living via the internet.
