Michael Crawford’s Quantum Code Review: A Copycat Scam?

Today I’m going to be taking a look at a recently released product that is spreading across the Internet like wildfire.

That product is ‘Quantum Code’ by Michael Crawford. The promise is that Quantum Code will earn you over $1.8m per month online, regardless of your experience. Better than that, Michael wants to give you his Quantum Code for free.

I’ve just spent the last 2 hours pulling Quantum Code completely apart. I now ask that you make me a virtual promise to NOT hand any money over to Michael Crawford before reading this review from top to bottom. Here we go…

QUANTUM CODE QUICK OVERVIEW

From the minute that I landed on the Quantum Code website I had an overwhelming feeling of déjà vu. A very simple website with a plain black background, huge earning claims and a video.

Hmm…I’ve definitely seen websites almost identical to this in the past. Unfortunately, they were ALL scams.

Let’s hope that Quantum Code is very different and that Michael Crawford lives up to his self-proclaimed title of being the “nicest rich guy on the planet”.

As there’s nothing more than a video to watch to even get an idea of what the Quantum Code involves, I’m going to save you the 34 minutes required and tell you exactly what to expect.

Oh and I should also mention the scarcity tactics that are already in place on the Quantum Code website…

quantumcode-scarcity1

An automated counter that tricks you into thinking you are not alone on the website. And…

quantumcode-scarcity2

Another automated counter that is designed to make you think you have an exclusive opportunity within your hands and you need to act fast to take advantage of it.

THE QUANTUM CODE VIDEO

Right from the very start of the video it feels like Michael Crawford is trying to soften you up. He mentions that you’ve probably heard of him as the “Wall St Wizard”, “The Millionaire Trader” or you might even have read about him in the Forbes magazine.

He boards his private jet along with Tasha, his assistant, and they take to the skies. On the journey he reveals a spreadsheet on Tasha’s Macbook with a list of people who were making money with the Quantum Code.

He also receives a mid-flight text from one of his students who thanks him for helping to earn $16,000 that day.

quantumcode-private-jet

I’m slightly concerned at this point because Michael doesn’t look at ease in his private jet. He fumbles around during the journey in a way that suggests he doesn’t like flying, and if I’m being honest…he really should consider investing some of his millions on a new jet with a bit more headroom.

Eventually Michael arrives at Quantum Code HQ – a building that he built last year for the entire Quantum Code team. We get to meet Sergey – one of Quantum Code’s lead programmers.

Sergey explains that he has been earning $100,000 per week with the very latest version of Quantum Code and he can’t wait for others to try it out.

quantumcode-sergey

The promises continue to flow with the emphasis on not having to spend a single cent to be earning $6000 per day online and that you don’t need any experience to use the Quantum Code.

Michael then heads to his office where he makes contact with 3 students who are also using the latest version of the Quantum Code software.

He introduces a very eccentric Robert from the UK. He’s made over $134,000 in 2 months.

Next up is Mark Abrahams from Australia. He borrowed $250 from a friend to get started with the Quantum Code, yet he’s since earned over $380,000 in just 4 months. Strange…I thought Michael said the Quantum Code was completely free?

Michael also tries to contact Cindy from South Africa who he claims is earning $6000 per day online. She doesn’t answer Michael’s Skype call and he suggests that she’s probably out spending some of her daily earnings.

Eventually Michael gets to explain more about the new Quantum Code 8.0 software. He sets up a brand new account and says he will let it run for an hour and see how much it earns.

He also explains that there are only 20 spots available for anyone wanting to use the new Quantum Code 8.0 system.

quantumcode-20-spots

An hour later and we are taken to Michael’s luxury home where he cracks open the champagne and checks on the new account that he set up.

It’s earned over $3800 in just 60 minutes, and that makes it an ideal time for Michael to urge you to snap up one of the remaining spots as a tester of the latest Quantum Code software.

All that’s left to do is to enter my details to claim my spot. But before I do, let me tell you what’s really going on in the Quantum Code video.

THE REALITY OF MICHAEL CRAWFORD AND HIS QUANTUM CODE VIDEO…

Not only is the Quantum Code video VERY cheesy, it’s also a completely FAKE opportunity.

Michael Crawford is not a real person, he is played by an actor who has appeared in many other scam videos. One in particular being Terran Capitals, a program where he makes similar earning claims with a similar binary options program.

terran-capitals-website

Despite Michael’s company claims made in the video, Quantum Code Inc does not exist. I’ve checked. Michael also claims in the video that Quantum Code has been in existence since 2006, but according to my research, the website was established in June 2016.

There is also no mention of Michael Crawford on any Forbes material, and I cannot find any information that suggests he was a successful Wall St trader.

The private jet? That was a hired from a company called ‘Sun Quest’ in Oregon. The company logo is visible when Michael gets in the jet. This might explain why he looked so cramped in what should be the complete luxury of his own private jet.

The Quantum Code team in the video are also actors who have appeared in countless other binary trading scam videos.

Quantum Code HQ was actually a hired building with fake company badges and logos used throughout the video.

The reason why he chose to contact 3 apparent testers was to convince the viewer that Quantum Code can be used from any country in the world (UK, Australia and South Africa were specifically targeted). Those testers were all actors too.

“I’VE SEEN THIS SCAM BEFORE…”

Back in 2014, I reviewed a product called “The Free Money System” by a guy called Walter Green. It was virtually identical to Quantum Code in every way. A completely scripted video and huge earning promises that were totally false.

Just like Quantum Code, The Free Money System also claimed to be completely free of charge, only to eventually force people into paying $200 to start trading binary options.

freemoneysystem

Since writing that review, I’ve received over 350 comments and 100’s of emails from people who lost $200 or more to Walter Green’s program. In some cases, they even had money taken out of their bank accounts by the Free Money System WITHOUT permission.

Even to this day I still get messages and emails from people who continue to fall for the Free Money System scam.

In my opinion, Quantum Code was either created by the same people who created The Free Money System, or the entire system has been copied.

Here’s further proof of why I think this is the case…

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR THE QUANTUM CODE?

Once you hand over your details you are then taken to a members area and yet another video from Michael. He’s got some good news…and some bad news.

quantumcode-stage2

Firstly, Sergey has been in touch with Michael and the first 18 people to use the new Quantum Code 8.0 software are earning 3 times more than anticipated. The bad news? There are now only two spots left.

Michael urges you to activate your Quantum Code account by continuing to the next page.

When you do, you are then logged into a website called quantumcodesapp.com, where you appear to be inside a sophisticated members area. Images keep popping up telling you how much people are earning, and there’s yet another video from Michael.

This time he delivers more bad news…there’s now only one spot left and to use Quantum Code you need to pay $250 to Michael’s chosen trader.

quantumcode-pressure

Just like The Free Money System, the Quantum Code forces you to pay $250 to use a system that is nothing more than a team of traders who will gamble your money on the foreign exchange market.

quantumcode-fund-account

If you don’t pay the $250, they will pressure you by email and phone until you had over at least $250 so they can start gambling your hard earned cash.

When they lose your money, they will pressure you to hand over even more.

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO GAIN?

A lot.

Firstly, they have your email address and phone number. They will use these to pressure you into paying up and they will also sell your details on to other scam programs.

They will also have your bank or credit card details. The risk here is obvious.

And here’s their biggest gain…

binarybook-affiliate-program

By forcing you to pay $250 to BinaryBook, the creators of Quantum Code earn at least 30% of every dollar that you hand over to the trader. This is once again identical to the process used in Walter Green’s Free Money System.

THE QUANTUM CODE HAS COVERED ITS BACK

On the Quantum Code terms page there’s a section that states: “ALL FORMS OF TRADING CARRY A HIGH LEVEL OF RISK”, and “DO NOT INVEST MONEY YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE”. This of course is the reality of the situation, but it’s hidden away in an area that most people won’t see.

There’s also a section that basically removes any liability for the people behind the Quantum Code if someone should go down the legal route of trying to get their money back.

quantum-code-disclaimer

MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE QUANTUM CODE

PLEASE…do not invest ANY money in The Quantum Code. It is a total scam.

It will not earn you $1.8m per month, $3000 per hour or any other crazy amount that Michael Crawford and his team mention. It will actually lose you money.

The truth is, ANY form of trading is extremely risky without a good understanding of the industry.

The Quantum Code team are basically asking you to hand over your money so they can trade on the foreign exchange markets.

They want you to spend as much as possible because the more you spend, the more they earn from the trading broker. They don’t care about your personal success OR what happens to you when it doesn’t work.

My advice in this case is to keep hold of your $250 and put it to better use. Remember that there are no magic bullet programs out there that will earn you a lot of money quickly.

Please make sure that your friends are aware of The Quantum Code scam by sharing my review using the social buttons to the left.

The people behind Quantum Code are now paying to advertise their program on high profile and trusted websites to make it appear legitimate. A simple share will ensure your friends and family don’t fall for it.

If you’ve tried The Quantum Code or have any thoughts on it, I’d love to hear from you in the comments section below!

    Hi Audrey,

    Yes, it’s not difficult to get caught up in the web of these programs.

    You did the right thing by telling them you had no funds to invest. That’s usually enough to make them back away. Well done.

    All the best,

Hi Marcus,
I came so close to parting with my hard earned money with this ‘scam’. Luckily when something seems to good to be true… It usually is, hence why I always review things and even more so concerning this Quantum Code.

Keep up the good work digging out these worms :)

    Marcus - September 20, 2017 Reply

    Hi Jo,

    Well done for being so vigilant here.

    The majority of people who come across these programs are desperate to get some extra cash, so they are more likely to dive straight in.

    Hopefully this post and other honest opinions around the Internet prevent them from falling in too deep. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks for stopping by, Jo!

    So sorry to hear about this, Kris, but I can assure you are not alone in falling for it.

    I hope the loss doesn’t cause you and your family hardship. It makes my blood boil to think how these programs affect people’s lives.

HI Marcus, I feel like a fool for falling for this scam! After losing $58 of my $250, I deactivated the automatic running. I got a call asking that I deposit $5,000 more as they would have a better chance of making me money. My response was that I did not have that kind of money lying around collecting dust. He advised me that I might want to close the account. When I asked how to get my money back they said I had to send all this personal info to verify who I was. I didn’t have a response at the time but thought “Gee, you didn’t have to have any verification when you took it from me!” Anyway, like you, I was too afraid of identity theft and didn’t do it. Fortunately, my bank has a block on my debit card from making any transactions out of the country without my ok, so I’m not too worried about them getting into my bank account. I will call my bank and see if they can do a charge back tomorrow.

    Hi Sharon,

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with The Quantum Code.

    Everything that you have said ties in perfectly with the way that I know these guys operate.

    As you said, they make it simple enough for you to deposit money. Once you’ve committed they pressure you into investing a much larger sum.

    Most people do as you did and pull out at that point because they feel they are about to be scammed. When they do pull out, that’s not such bad news for the guys at The Quantum Code because the remainder of your initial investment is left behind.

    That’s a nice bit of profit for the scammers, and for not a lot of work.

    But…in my experience with my visitors I do know that some people get tricked into investing more.

    Shortly after they get concerned about being scammed and ask to withdraw their investment. They face the same verification process that you faced, Sharon, and have to make the decision between handing over all of their personal information for the verification process, or losing a sum larger than their original investment.

    Of course, the team behind this scam have big smiles on their faces at that point.

    They either get full personal details from an innocent victim, or they get to keep the investment that the individual decides to leave behind.

    Either way, it’s a profitable win/win for them.

    Completely sickening to be honest with you, and I am sorry that you too have found yourself in this difficult position.

    I’m not sure if you’ve seen my recent post on earning potential with binary options, but I actually interviewed a professional trader and got his thoughts on the industry.

    It’s a very interesting read if this is something that interests you:

Amani - January 4, 2017 Reply

Hi, i recently heard about the quanum code. I reggistered and a few min later a man named adam parker called me saying that the system works well but i wont be earning much money just the normal range of 3,000 a month. He also said that he is the one i should contact if i need any information. He said i had to deposit 250 dollers. He said that he will need proof that i am who i claim to be and so on. And he sent me an e-mail saying that that is his e-mail and if i need anything or when im ready to start using the system i should mail him. A few days later i was thinking to myself ”he wanted proof that i am me, well i want proof of who he is and since its a company there should be something leagle he could show me.” So i e-maild him asking for proof and its been 2 days now and i have heard no reply. Im not willing to use the system anymore.

    Marcus - January 5, 2017 Reply

    Hi Amani,

    I think you got out at the right time here.

    These particular scams do tend to (unnecessarily) ask you for proof of who you are. They always seem to ask for things like a copy of your passport or bank account details.

    This unfortunately suggests to me that they could possibly use them for identity theft.

    Your approach to Adam Parker was perfect, and the fact that he hasn’t got back to you really proves how legitimate he might be.

    My advice here Amani is to steer well clear.

    All the best,

    Marcus – WFHW

Ibwould like to get my money back. I have cancelled my cc

    Marcus - October 14, 2016 Reply

    Hi Ron,

    You will need to contact the broker that you joined with when you signed up for the Quantum Code. Depending on when you signed up, this could be BinaryBook or one of the more recent brokers that they have used.

    I do hope you are able to get your money back, Ron.

    All the best,

doods - October 11, 2016 Reply

I have just registered with the quantum code and it was asking to pay $250 by credit card to get started. I was surprised it linked to binaryonline as preferred broker. Beforehand, another broker phoned and emailed me by the name TorOption thanking for registering with him. I did not register them. But I noticed from quantun code that waa the assigned broker. By the name Anna Harper emailed me about personal details. I am now afraid to reply and give my personal info because of what u said. I may forgo the $250 or ask my cc company to block them. I was surprised it’s not binary online reflected in credit card transaction but mnflower. I think I got scammed. I log on to binary online and I loss. I only have $ 216 in my account with them after making 3 trades. I was told to submit my personal info: Can I get it back?

    Marcus - October 11, 2016 Reply

    Hi doods,

    When I wrote my review for the Quantum Code I was aware that the broker they used had already changed a couple of times, and will continue to change going forward.

    This is usually because the actual broker usually gets lots of refund requests from people who have joined through the Quantum Code, and as a result they block the affiliate’s (the team behind Quantum Code) links and account. The Quantum Code team therefore have no choice but to switch to a new broker.

    In your situation, doods, I agree that you should contact your cc company and ask what they can do. They should be able to block, and might even be able to claw back your initial $250.

    Regarding any contact with a broker or from anyone claiming to be your broker, I would not give them any personal information.

    If your cc company can’t get your initial outlay back, the only discussions you need to have with these people is to ask how you get your money back.

    It would be great if you could update me on your situation, doods. I hope everything goes well and you get your money back.

    All the best,

    Marcus – WFHW
