Under the microscope today is a brand new advertising company, currently in pre-launch mode. One that follows the modern Ad Credit system to compensate affiliates who invested in ad packs. There is a $5 and 20,000 ad credits sign up bonus during this phase. The official launch date is 10 February 2017.
Let’s see, are these bonus worthy?..Can this program stand beyond the low quality competition?
The design, the sign up bonus and the domain of course reminds me 154pack. The promising announcement mentioning $0.1 guaranteed daily earnings for all members is a thing that I will discuss at the end.
Let’s move on with the rest of headlines…
- Ultra responsive template, quality advertising
- Multiple funding options, long term approach
- Withdrawals up to 200%, refund policy, 24/7 support
How it Works
The process is very simple…
- Add funds and purchase ad packs, active points and monthly memberships
- Cashout – minimum threshold $10, maximum $150 daily
Investment Ad Pack Plans
- Plan Pack 01 – $5, ROI 115%, 5% daily earnings, membership required at $5 monthly, 250 directory ad credits, 5000 ad credits, maximum 100 packs at once
- Plan Pack 02 – $10, ROI 125%, 5% daily earnings, $5 monthly membership, 500 directory ad credits, 10,000 ad credits, maximum 200 packs at once
- Plan Pack 03 – $20, ROI 140%, 5% daily earnings, $5 monthly membersip, 1000 directory ad credits, 20,000 ad credits, maximum 300 packs at once
- Plan Pack 04 – $40, ROI 160%, 5% daily earnings, $5 monthly membership, 2000 directory ad credits, 40,000 ad credits, maximum 500 packs at once
Active Points: $0.60 per item, earns $0.01 daily, you lose 1 active point for every dollar you cashout
20% repurchase rules (re-investing in the system) out of earnings.
Packs mature after 24-32 days.
Free members can join the program and earn cash with PTC ads / referral commissions but in order to withdraw earnings they need to purchase ad packs. But probably you would be able to use the repurchase balance like in 154pack. The platform of 160pack is not launched yet, I have to wait for that detail.
About Page – They say…
160Pack is a professional advertising company that sells advertisements with revenue sharing service. We offer you an opportunity to earn with us. Also there are PTC ads to reward you with extra cash.
We share profits from every product sale with all members that purchased ad packs, excluded referral commissions and admin fees. Revenue sharing is done until members receive all earnings on their ad packs. Please note that these earnings depend on the sales of all services and products that we offer.
The last statement comes as a contradiction with the 5% daily earnings and the ad pack estimated maturity duration announcement.
In principle, we cannot and do not guarantee any earnings or speed of earnings from profit sharing and it is only an additional income opportunity. 160pack is not an investment program or a money-making opportunity.
It is not a money making opportunity but is massively advertised as one. The website is full of earning claims.
15% commissions split into 1st level 10%, 2nd level 5%. 20% of the referral commissions go straight to the repurcahse balance.

Here is what I found on that page…””Hello my name is Lucas Hones founder of 154pack and 160pack, and I am an online entrepreneur and professional trader. In this Area we share our results of trading every 15 days. I have a team of professional traders , who try to do the best to generate out sourced income for 160pack , we can get a profit between 30%~80% per month for our investement, with a minimum of risk.””
I remember that kind of announcement with 154pack. There is a mysterious trading team behind the scenes to ensure external cash flow to the 160pack company. I am not biting the bait that easily. I need solid proofs for that claim and not just fake screenshots.
Obviosuly Lucas is trying to avoid 160pack being categorised as another Ponzi scheme. More on that on my conclusion.

160Pack Ad Platform
It is exactly the same with 154pack. But in order to be sure I will update the article in a few days when I finish with the proper tests.
Right now there are 8 x $0.01 PTC ads available. Probably self sponsored. Let’s see how it goes.
Owners – Domain
A whois search indicates the registration date for the domain 160pack.com, 27 January 2017. The owners are hiding from the public using privacy protection.
I wonder why Mr Lucas, if he is the owner of 154pack, created another revenue sharing program, this time the 160pack. I am using 154pack since the pre-launch phase and I am ready to buy the first ad pack out of PTC earnings. I did not invest out of my pocket because the program was very suspicious. I only invest after deep research and only with companies that are paying.
Is it the beginning of the end for 154pack?…Why someone that claims a long term business model created a replica of his own program?…There are no real differences between those 2 programs. The structure is the same, you purchase ad packs, monthly memberships and acrtive points. So what Lucas could do was to give his best to take 154pack to the next level. But there is no next level for these revenue sharing ad platforms. The next level is when they are getting suspended.
If Lucas was a professional trader winning at the markets with his team of experts he would not create a platform to share his trading profits with the rest of the world. He would continue working as a trader, enjoying his expertise. If anyone is building a revenue sharing platform is because he is in need of funds. Any entrepreneur with retail customers and in profit is not splitting earnings with unknown people.
No rev share program can guarantee daily earnings for all members. Those prorgams are solely dependent on affiliates deposits. If no one is investing no one can get paid. It’s that simple, to answer what I promised in the beginning of this article. Even the admin admits that in the FAQ section.
I am monitoring both programs closely and I will keep you updated. But in any case, I do NOT recommend to invest in any of these 2. There is a high risk in losing your funds.
Both 154pack and 160pack are Ponzi schemes that will eventually die out as recruitment of affiliates slows down. This is when the owners disappear ready for their next Ponzi.
Do not take these programs seriously as money making opportunities. Use them as advertising platforms, but even in that case your ads will be exposed to other alike entrepreneurs that are looking to sell, not to buy.
Update 02 Mar 2017
Cashout rules changed, you need to have active referrals or buy a filter for $20 to bypass the rule, worthless scam, this is why I never buy ad packs from suspicious programs like this one
How to Make Money Online the Right Way
Investing in these programs is worst than gambling. More importantly if anyone is making money (only the owner and a few investors) is on the expense of other affiliates. The vast majority of participants all lose money at the end.
However if you are willing to work hard then I have good news. You can get started with an affiliate website and turn it to a multiple income stream, just like with traditional offline businesses. Long term potential, no risks, minimum start up costs, endless opportunities.
That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time, your online partner.
