Why Are People From the Philipines Not Allowed Free Membership?

Last Update: February 24, 2016

Hello Everyone,

I have a person from the Philipines wanting to start the free membership but he says he is not allowed to join free membership. He is allowed to start paid membership. Is this true or is it a misunderstanding?

Thank you,

Edward Mijarez

Nigeria, Vietnam, Pakistan also ain't allowed. There are more, can't remember which ones.

Something to do with scams, scammers - I remember Kyle said, so they decided to cut off the free membership option to certain countries where a lot of scams are tried (multiple free accounts or something)

I read about countries not allowed for free membership but not because of scams from those countries.

there are various countries in the world where it is not possible to have a free membership. This is because those countries are the main source of scams online. As of 2015 these countries are:

Bangladesh
Egypt
India
Nigeria
Pakistan
Philippines
Vietnam

My understanding is anyone can start with the free membership, never heard of this before. I would do what is suggested below.

I had not heard of that, but post this also as a question as well as a blog and see if you can get an answer. I am curious too. Also, you can send an email directly to Kyle at Kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com
