Fortune High-Tech Marketing (FHTM) is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company that recently celebrated its 10th-year of success. FHTM offers its representatives the opportunity to make millions with a small investment. It’s a home-based opportunity that does not require the representative to need storage space, special equipment, or technical experience. The FHTM representative sell products from well-established companies and web sites such as GE, Travelocity, Verizon, and Direct TV. They promise extensive training, technical support, and have a program that allows new representatives to enroll as a training coach for an additional investment. The company offers incentive programs, luxury vehicles, fabulous vacations, and much more through its Platinum Program.
The company’s founder is Paul Orbison. Paul retired, at age 40, from Excel Communications where he worked as a network marketer. The company is handled and managed by Paul Orbison, his son Jeff, and FHTM CEO Tom Mills. The company boasts 200-thousand representatives and revenues near $500-million yearly. Their mission statement is to help others better their lives through the opportunity they have developed. The company holds no debt, no inventory, and does not have stockholders, and claims to be partnered with the companies whose product its representatives sell. Recruitment is done through representatives at different levels, within the company, and videos featured on YouTube.
The Pay Plan
As with many “work from home” opportunities, there was no specific monetary investment mentioned, although in one FHTM Review there was the suggestion that new representatives pay an additional fee of $299 to become trainer coaches, therefore, allowing the individual to recruit others into the program and earn $40-per person/s recruited. The same review claimed that representatives could make 2 to 20-percent commission on sells, and accumulate bonuses for recruiting that increased as the individual moved up in rank through leadership positions.
FHTM Reviews vary but the FHTM Scam involves those that have invested, only to find themselves in-debt and having spent a good deal of money for naught. However, there are some individuals that claim success through FHTM. Travelocity, GE, Verizon, and Direct TV have stated publicly that they are not affiliated in any way with FHTM, and there are two states pursuing law suits against the company. The state of Montana shut down what they viewed as FHTM Scam operations in their state.
