What is 4 Percent Group – Scam or Legit Business Opportunity? — 16 Comments

  1. Okay, to set the records straight, this Vicky of a guy has actually been charged with this much of cases and he was even tried. I wouldn’t want to get involved in a business with such a person. The 4percent group review you have done up here did give plausible and worthy reasons to join the platform as it presents legit way to earn cash but then, the issue of hidden cost. And there’s a particular one that might go up to 12000$! That’s too much. All in all, I dont think I’m convinced enough to try out this system. Thanks

    • Thanks for sharing your views on the 4 Percent Group Mattias. That’s right, this Vick Strizheus chap was charged for stealing $30,000. I am not sure how it ended, I think he served some time in prison for that. But then, I am a great believer that if he fully paid for his mistakes and decided to re-do his life honestly, he deserves another chance, especially for his family who knew nothing about his misconduct, but also bared the consequences. 

      Unfortunately, the fact that he is hiding extra costs doesn’t show that he is trying to start a new life though.

      I wish you the very best,


  2. Hi John! I appreciate your very honest review. There are a lot of post out there that are biased. Some only emphasize the good things of a platform, and others only emphasize the cons. I liked that in this post you’re right in the middle, carefully pointing out the pros and cons. It’s good to know this is not a scam, but I have decided to follow your advice of joining your free Internet marketing training first. Thanks!

    • Thanks very much for taking the time to comment on the 4 Percent Group review Henry, and for your nice words.

      I am glad that you have decided to have a look at my #1 Recommendation Henry, I am sure that you will like it and hopefully join.

      Let me know if you have any questions.


  3. It’s the first I’m hearing of the 4 percent group and the founder. There are truly a lot of scandals around this guy and looking at that record it’s safe to stay safe. Okay maybe he has changed but there are the cons again, there are hidden upsells and then he is using members to recruit more members. I don’t know what others think but I don’t think this programme is sufficient enough even after looking into what they offer here. It’s good that people can read reviews like this online to decide if they want to join in or not. Great review here.

    • Thanks for sharing your views on the 4 Percent Group opportunity John. As you say, it will take more than just promises to trust this guy again, especially that he is using the same techniques that scammers use all the time. Even though he seems to have decided to begin a new business life, it is still doubtful in some aspects.

      Have a great day.


  4. Hi John

    The obvious question is can a leopard change its spots. If a person who has been involved in questionable activities in the past, what is stopping them doing it now and in the future. From reading your article you seem to be conflicted in saying that it is a proven technique but you do trust the owner, and that is why you gave a middling score. Don’t worry I would be in the same situation. Trust has to be eating and I would find it difficult to trust this person. 

    I personally hate upsells, either increase the price and include it in or be totally honest from the beginning. No nasty surprises.  Do you think people who have in past being caught with their pants down, should be prevented from starting such a programme?

    Thank you


    • Yes Antonio, you are absolutely right, in fact despite his “promise” to start a new and honest life, Vick already uses dishonest tactics to lure in customers, such as the very low joining price then the hidden costs for the system to work.

      Unfortunately, his shady past will follow him for a long time to come, unless he comes up with something that really appeals to his members. Who knows, it might be the 4 Percent Group.

      Wishing you the very best Antonio.


  5. Thanks for this informative post, I am just starting my career in internet marketing and I am learning internet marketing through self-study. I very much want to attend training in internet marketing. However, the course you have reviewed here looks very expensive to me. I’ll be looking forward to trying out your number one recommendation.

    • You are quite right Seun, the 4 Percent Group opportunity can end up to be very expensive, and there is no guarantee of success as there is no proper training, plus, the creator of the program, Vitaliy Strizheus (Vick), has a very grey past record.

      You will be much better off having a good look at my #1 recommend program (tab at the top of this page). It is free to join as a Starter Member, the training is definitely the best in existence, and the support system is absolutely unique.

      Let me know if you have any questions, I will be happy to guide you.

      Best wishes,


  6. Hello John thanks for this really honest review. I must confess you explanation in this post is really nice and I got the best understanding if this post. How ever even after reading this post I wouldn’t want to sign up with this 4 percent group because of the history of its founder and I wouldn’t want to to be selling other peoples product, rather than making my own money. My opinion.

    • Thanks for giving your opinion on the workings of the 4 Percent Group Dane. You are quite right, even though Vitaliy Strizheus has paid for his past mistakes and seems to remain honest, he is still using tactics that are not really ethical. I may be wrong, but I would not trust his 4 Percent Group system yet and see how it turns out in time.

      I wish you the very best for whatever your projects are Dane.


  7. Oh! It reminds me of Empower network which turns out to be a big scam. They wanted me to pay certain amount in order to cashout but I didn’t. Now that I have been informed that it is connected with 4 percent group, it becomes difficult to trust them.

    Also. It appears people are being taken advantage of to buy products through membership. The programme might not last for a long time unless it capitalizes on proper training of its members. Thanks

    • Thanks very much for taking the time to comment on the 4 Percent Group opportunity. I see that you nearly got caught in their trap, well done for not being tricked.

      Unfortunately these scammers don’t care about providing a viable training, their goal is not for the long term, once their program starts to lose trust and momentum, they just change the title and their name, and there they go again.

      I hope that after that you have found a legit and profitable program to join in, if not, just let me know and I will send you a few suggestions. Meanwhile, you can have a look at my #1 recommendation (the tab at the top of the page).

      I wish you all the very best.


  8. Thanks for sharing this review with us John. While not inherently a scam, 4 Percent Group definitely sounds a bit scummy. My first red flag is that the founder has been caught up in some shady business before. The second, is the hidden costs you mentioned. I believe to be a truly worthwhile and effective system to help others make money online that all of the costs need to be laid out at the time of purchase. No hidden fees or upsells after the initial signup. Just having a training program isn’t enough. It also helps that your founder doesn’t have a shady past either.

    • Quite right Rachel. Unfortunately there are not many opportunities in existence that can tick all the boxes of perfection, in fact I know of only one, which is Wealthy Affiliate where you can feel and breathe total honesty and transparency.

      Thanks for sharing your views Rachel and I wish you the very best for whatever online project(s) you are on.

      Take care, stay safe and healthy.
