If you were wondering if the Email Syndicate was a scam, then the answer is yes it is! I know the title of this article is a slight giveaway! Sorry if you were hoping for a better money-making system. But stick around and I’ll show what the Email Syndicate is all about. I’ll also show you how you can really make money online.
If you are a regular reader of the Make Money Online Zone then you may recall an article that we wrote. Not so long ago we reviewed a product called The Guaranteed Email System. At the end of that article, we said that we would need to delve deeper into that scam as there was more than one connection to further products.
It would seem that the scammers behind the Guaranteed Email System also created the Email Syndicate Scam too! And things were only set to get worse as we delved deeper into this rip-off.
Welcome to my Email Syndicate Review!
In this review, I want to be completely clear about what you might hear online about this system. If you have done any research on this product, then you may well have found a few differences in opinion. There are a couple of reasons why this system actually gets good reviews.
The first reason is that this product is actually promoted via affiliates through a popular affiliate network. Unfortunately, affiliates that promote The Email Syndicate scam are either misled or simply don’t care how they make money. In this article, I want to tell you how I believe this system works and why I believe it’s survived for so long!
What Is The Email Syndicate?
This system is basically an email marketing system that supposedly allows you to make money by sending out promotional emails. This product makes the deal sound really good as they claim that everything is done for you and all you need to do is press a couple of buttons each day.
The idea is that you simply set up an email autoresponder account, build a mailing list and then send out hundreds of emails each and every day to make money. The Email Syndicate takes care of both buildings your mailing list and giving you emails to send out.
Many people would see this as the ultimate business opportunity. It appears to be extremely straightforward to set up and really couldn’t be any simpler to run.
The Email Syndicate tells us that in order to profit all we need do is press a button to send pre-written emails out to hundreds of people. In fact, on watching the introduction video to this product we learn that we are actually guaranteed to make at least $100 in the next 24 hours! Nice… If only it were true…
The Email Syndicate Scam – The Small Print!
The intro video gives us a guarantee of money with this system. However, the small print at the bottom of the page tells another story!
Well Surprise, Surprise!
After entering some fake contact details we are taken to the member’s area. And what a surprise to find exactly the same system and training area that we saw in the Guaranteed Email System!
How does the Email Syndicate Scam Work?
When anyone joins up to this system, the people behind it appear to be building you an email list. Building an email subscriber list is something that is very common in internet marketing and is indeed a good way to keep in touch with your customers and also to make money online. However, the Email Syndicate Scam builds a list for you on auto-pilot and also at record speed.
If you have ever tried to build a subscriber list you will know how difficult it can be. But somehow this product manages to get you hundreds of new subscribers every week. Since you are paid per email click, the subscribers don’t need to purchase anything either.
Something didn’t add up here. And as we said in our Guaranteed Email System review, these guys could be illegally collecting emails and forcing their members to use them in marketing campaigns. This could potentially put anyone using this system at risk of a fine for sending spam emails. But then we found some new evidence…
Is the whole thing completely fake?
Fortunately, over the years we have gained a few resources online. So in the interest of everyone, we decided to investigate this list building scam a little further. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to find out how this company was building everyone’s mailing list.
But I was able to find a member of the site who would test the mailing list to at least see if the emails collected were legitimate. The results were quite amazing!
On testing the email addresses given to us by the Email Syndicate scam, it would appear that they are all either fake, outdated or redundant. On testing the email addresses directly through the autoresponder, we received no responses. It is quite possible that this scam simply produces hundreds of fake email addresses and simply reuses them over and over.
So what about the earnings? Also fake?
On discovering that the email lists created within this scam are fake, then it doesn’t take a lot to work out how the Email Syndicate can guarantee $100 in 24 hours of using the system.
These guys have no intention of paying you any money that you earn. The earning figures displayed in the member’s area are completely fake, along with the email list that you are paying to host as a member of this scam.
And then we found Joe Robertson. Joe was an unhappy ex-member of this scam who decided to take some action. Joe confirmed the fact that you don’t stand a chance of seeing any payments from the Email Syndicate system.
The Email Syndicate Scam – Conclusion
The Email Syndicate scam is a website that makes money by scamming its members. They make money from the membership sales as well as various upsells that they offer.
They offer a trial of the membership at $1.95 for 5 days and then $47 after that. And then offer to upgrade the membership for $97 before a further offer of $77 to use your fake email list 3 times a day! The creators of this scam also make their money being affiliated with the autoresponder service that they recommend.
As Joe pointed out in his video, this company have no intention of paying out any money that you think you might have earned here. It’s all completely fake and a total scam!
The Story Continues…
It would seem that the creators behind this system have found such a great way to scam people that they decided to duplicate it. We started out investigating one system that led us to the Email Syndicate Scam. But it would seem that the story doesn’t quite end there either! Whilst investigating this system, we found yet another money maker by the same people.
Stay tuned as we investigate “My Email Mentor”. Seems like these scammers have been really busy!

Thank you Andrew for a thorough review of Email Syndicate!
As you say, me too believe that the best way to build a Email list is to build it yourself, even if it takes time and effort.
But it’s so easy to get tempted of “easy ways out” when hearing about helping systems and big promises. But it is a jungle to navigate between all false shots.
So thanks again! Reviews like yours is needed to help us keep out form the bad boys blacken the online marketing industry. Keep up the good work!
My pleasure Marika. Yes, building an email subscriber list of your own is the only way to do it in my opinion. The opt-in list that you build should be personal to you and your website. The people that are on your list should have opted in for a reason, if only to get a free report from you! Even if the Email Syndicate scam was a legitimate website, having someone else build your list from random people is just crazy.
There is a saying that “the money is in the list” however any experienced marketer will tell you that this simply isn’t completely true. The money is actually within the relationship that you have with your list. If those people don’t know you and have never heard of you, they will be less likely to trust your recommendations.
So yes, building your own list is definitely the way to go!
Thank you for an honest review of email syndicate as it is very dangerous to sign up for these things without doing thorough research to what they are.
I see that you mentioned Wealthy Affiliate is a better system… because we know email syndicate is a scam, will Wealthy Affiliate teach us instead how to build an email list that will scale and be successful?
I look forward to your reply
Hello Ken! Thank you for getting in touch and thank you also for your question. They say that the money is in the list don’t they? Well that’s not always the case! Systems like the Email Syndicate and many others, will teach you supposedly easy methods of building massive lists of email subscribers. This really isn’t needed to make money online. What is needed is “targeted buyers”, and that’s what Wealthy Affiliate can teach you.
Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to build a website that attracts targeted traffic. People that are interested in what you are saying and what you are promoting are far more likely to purchase something and make you a commission. The likes of The Email Syndicate say they will build you massive lists quickly and on total auto-pilot. Although it would seem that these scammers just use fake email addresses, if they didn’t it would still be a poor system. Whats better, a list of 10 targeted people to your niche or 10000 people that couldn’t care less? My first ever email list had only 10 subscribers before it made me money. There’s a lesson there!
Will Wealthy Affiliate teach you how to build that list and get targeted traffic? In my opinion it offers the best training online for just that. I also offer additional support in the members area, should you need it.

Speak to you soon,
Wow, Andrew this is very bad! I am sure there are tons of unsuspecting victims putting in money, effort and time just to see a system that works. Thank you for this review it will save a bunch of people. I was looking at this system but will avoid it now.
Which of the email leads system do you recommend? I know there must be a couple that works?
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. Hopefully this review will get to the people that need it the most. Glad to hear that you are avoiding this now!
In answer to your question, I do not recommend that you try any sort of automated lead generation system. The best and most trusted way to generate real, genuine leads and to build up your email subscriber list is to build it yourself. Offer a free ebook or offer on your site and then give it away in exchange for an email address. If you want to really ramp up your efforts, promote your squeeze page with social or paid traffic. At least that way, you know where your leads have come from and more importantly you know they aren’t fake!
