Emobile Code Review: Are Scam Reports True?

*UPDATE April 2019*
Emobile Code has recently been closed down by the FTC. Click Here for all the details.

Another day and yet another mobile-related product hits the make money online market.

But hang on…the format of Emobile Code is very similar to other products that I have reviewed recently, so similar in fact that it’s almost like reviewing the same program over again.

Is this something that I should be concerned about?

Or is it that Emobile Code really is the amazing cash-generating system that the website suggests?

It’s time to dig deep into emobilecode.com to see why this program is getting so much exposure and attention.

Emobile Code Program Details


Name: Emobile Code
Program Type: Making money from websites targeting mobile advertising
Price: Stated as $49 but with MANY upsells
Owner (portrayed to be): Bill McKnight

My first impressions of the Emobile Code website are that there’s nothing to do other than sit through a well-scripted video explaining how the system works, how much money can be made, and personal success stories from those who have apparently tried the system.

And at 1 hour 15 mins long, the video covers every possible reason to NOT try the program and then concludes with the usual run of bonus offers that make it a no-brainer for those who sit through the entire video.

But don’t worry if you don’t have a spare 75 mins to get all the detail because I did have the time and will explain exactly what the Emobile Code program is all about.

What Exactly Is Emobile Code?

Emobile Code is a program that builds turnkey websites on broad niche topics. Basically, if you join the program you will be creating the exact same websites as everyone else who buys into the program.

As explained in the video, the core component of the system is email marketing. So, if you’ve never tried email marketing before then expect to have to do it from the start when you join.

The Emobile Code system is one that bases exposure to your website via smartphone users.

They also say that their mobile-friendly websites are optimized for smartphone users, but as an experienced website builder, I can tell you that it’s dead simple to make a website smartphone-friendly – especially if you use WordPress.

Once your website is built you then create a sequence of emails where you promote related products to anyone who is willing to hand over their name and email.

This is where and how your income is generated using the system.

The Reality Of The Emobile Code System…

Let me cut to the chase and explain what will happen if you hand over your details and pay the initial $49 to try this system.

Oh and let me just mention that according to Bill McKnight in the video, the $49 is to cover the support team who “need to get paid!”.

Structuring things in this way, he is able to say that the Emobile Code system is technically “Free” – very smart!

Ok…I’m paid up. After browsing through the various options in the clean-looking member’s area, I’ve highlighted below the areas that I am concerned about:

In a nutshell, you cannot get this program off the ground without spending more money.

And if that doesn’t worry you…the amounts you could potentially spend WILL.

As soon as you join you are required to buy domain names and hosting for your website(s). The Emobile Code system suggests they can get you a deal on these but they will still cost you $100’s per year.

You are also required to have an autoresponder for email marketing. Without it, the Emobile Code system will not work.

Even if you already have your own autoresponder service you are required to use the suggested program, which of course will mean further costs.

It costs you $1 for a 2-week trial, then $19 per month, and could eventually cost up to $120 per month.

Upon joining you are also offered a support call, but the reality of that is you will be sold various upsells on advanced training which can run into the $ 1000s.

Oddly enough, the training included “for free” with the program is very basic and will leave newbies baffled.

Various other upsells are included to spice up your Emobile businesses, all of which cost you more money and create a number of monthly recurring payments out of your bank account.

There is even an upsell to a very similar product!

The facts are there for all to see…if you invest fully in this program, you will likely need to spend $1000’s upfront and will have regular payments leaving your account each month.

Furthermore, this process of making money is completely dated.

Making money online is not about putting thin websites up and bombarding people with emails where you promote poor products to them. The Emobile Code method might have worked in 1990…but not today.

If you want proof, take a look at the program I’ve been using to build websites for over 10 years and you will quickly realize the many differences between a product like Emobile Code and one that actually works.

My Final Thoughts On Emobile Code

I genuinely believe that the earning claims made on the Emobile code video are unrealistic ($2000 – $5000 per day).

Factor in the unannounced costs that you will face once inside Emobile Code and I can only say that this product becomes something that you are simply not expecting.

I therefore advise that you avoid this program.

If you came here before taking the Emobile Code plunge then arm yourself with the scam factors that so often raise red flags for me and use them to assess the next work from home opportunity that you come across.

Do you have any experience with Emobile Code? If so I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.

  • I almost purchased this eMobile code system, but wanted to do some research first!! Certainly glad I did!!! Can you suggest a legit work from home system that doesn’t scam you into spending a ton of start-up fees with great earning potential as well as user friendly??? I’m so tired of the scams out there! Just looking for something legit I could do on the side from home in my spare time. Thanks in advance

    • Hi Melissa,

      Glad to have been able to help you here with the Emobile Code!

      There are many good work from home programs out there, and it depends greatly on what type of work you would like to do.

      A great (and free to try) opportunity that WFHW approves of can be found here.

      All the best,

  • Hi Marcus, am wondering why Nancy from Nancy reviews is giving it a 9 out of 10 saying she is making a nice amount from it and highly recommends it? I have bought it and scratching my head now. I have also signed up to MyEmailMentor and am wondering if this is another dead end! Thanks Marcus.

    • Hi Sharon,

      I have come across Nancy Reviews in the past and I noticed that the programs paying the highest amount of commission to affiliates always seem to get a thumbs up from her – regardless of if the product is a scam or not. This to me is a sign of someone who is not interested in the success or safety of their visitors.

      I’ve not looked at MyEmailMentor yet so I can’t pass comment. I will certainly add it for review though.

      Thanks for stopping by, Sharon!

      Best wishes,

  • Hey Marcus,
    I tried that stuff from EMobile Code for a while. I spent the countless hundreds of dollars and got nowhere with. However I was able to secure all my funding back from the hosting office and from the EMobile COde. Seriously wish I would have caught on to your site long before hand to save myself the trouble. The time and money I spent into this was brutal.

    • So good to hear that you were able to get your money back, Adam.

      More often than not people give up on the chase of getting a refund (especially with programs like this), which kind of makes you think it’s intentionally designed to be a difficult chase.

      The best of luck to you with all future online ventures.

  • I knew this was a scam because the man that called himself Keith did not say his last name or have any contact information in order to review with the Better Business Bureau. I almost purchased this but thought to check it out first. I’m glad I read your review. Thanks!

    • You are very welcome, Candy!

      Very good spot there and it just shows the lengths these people will go to in an attempt cover their tracks.

      Should be illegal, right?

      Best wishes,

  • Got the Email reviewed the video, payed my $49.00. Next video wanted an additional $197.00. DID NOT GO FOR IT. Smelled funny. So I lost $49.00 but saved a bunch..then came to this site.. Wish I read this first. Too good to be true? Most of the time they are. Thanks.

    • Hi Don,

      Sorry to hear about your loss with the Emobile Code program, but I’m pleased to hear that you didn’t pay the additional $197.

      Best wishes,

  • Thank you so much. After reading Brand washed I thought i could spot a scam but almost went for this. So grateful for your site :-)

    • That’s great to hear, Dan! Yes…they can be cleverly disguised this year but I’m pleased to hear that my review helped to reveal the truth.

      Best wishes,


  • I’m glad that I read your review first so I didn’t buy the mobile cash code but now I’m looking at Walter Green fast cash money system do you have any reviews on it?

    • Great to hear, Diane!

      I haven’t reviewed Fast Cash Money System yet, but I am just having a look at it as I type this reply. I have to say it looks very similar to Emobile Code plus a few others…wouldn’t you agree? Hmmm.

      I will certainly review it for you, but for now I would definitely say that you should proceed with caution.

      In the meantime you might want to take a look at my post on how to spot scams. You will instantly see that the Fast Cash Money System contains a number of the scam factors that I mention. Here’s the link:
