In this review (with video) we’ll take a look at Too Damn Easy and the unbelievable premise that is hard to believe people actually buy into. Sit back and watch the promises “Q" (the mysterious founder) makes. See the materials he uses to convince people to send large amounts of money to strangers. And last but not least, see how much cold, hard cash you can expect to show up on your front doorstep. Is Too Damn Easy a scam? Are there cash gifting programs that work? Let’s find out.

What is Cash Gifting? Are There Cash Gifting Programs that Work?

is too damn easy a scam

What is cash gifting? Cash gifting actually dates back way before the internet if you’re old enough to remember that far. It is a popular pyramid scheme where money is exchanged, but there is no actual service rendered. Instead, payments are promised for enrolling others into the same scheme.

This used to be popular with chain letters. You would receive a letter in the mail with 5 names/addresses on it and instructions that you are to follow. Step 1: send $1 to each of the names/addresses on the letter. Step 2: remove the top name, move the other 4 names up one spot, and put your name and address in the 5th spot. Last step: send this new letter with its instructions out to 10 (or more) random people. The premise is that when you sent to 10 who send to 10 who send to 10, by the time your name goes up the ranks from the 5 spot to the top spot you’ll have received potentially thousands of random letters from people each with $1 inside.

You’re rich! (Not really).

As you well know, these things never work. Too Damn Easy simply puts a modern internet spin on a dated scheme aimed at finding gullible and desperate people.

Is Too Damn Easy a Scam? How Does Too Damn Easy Work?

As I mentioned at the start, Too Damn Easy is one of the most bizarre schemes I’ve had the opportunity to review. It starts from the top. The man behind the business simply refers to himself as “Q". There is nothing more you know about him. You hear his voice, but you never see his face. This should raise huge red flags by the way.

When you go to the website you’re greeted with an out of focus video showing a super close up view of 600 stacked $100 bills. Most of Q’s videos follow this theme. You’ll see stacks of money on the floor, stacks of money on a table, and stacks of money in a cash counting machine.

Thankfully, when you enroll with this system, you are provided with Too Damn Easy instructions:

Is Too Damn Easy a Scam?: The Red Flags

When you ask yourself, “Is Too Damn Easy a scam?", think about what red flags would pop up if you did encounter a scam online. Think about all the things you’ve been warned to stay away from when it comes to online scams. Too Damn Easy will have all these red flags popping up and more.

  • First, we’ve already established that you never see the founder’s face or know his real name.
  • Second, it costs a minimum of $2000 to buy in to Too Damn Easy.
  • Last, you will be sending this hard earned money to someone whose name you don’t know and whose face you’ve never seen and hoping other people are willing to do the same.

As you can see from the instructions Q provides you with, you will use the tools provided to reach out to random people to get them in on this same process.

The main tool is a postcard where you don’t have to say or do anything except mail it out. It does all the talking and convincing for you! When your recipients see this work of persuasive art, they will be running to their computer to get started!

May I present Exhibit A, the postcard:

is too damn easy a scam
is too damn easy a scam

It amazes me that anyone in their right mind would take that postcard seriously. To be asked to send a minimum of $2000 off to a stranger after reading a postcard like that should raise all your red flags!

So, are you following how all this works?

You buy in for a minimum $2000 (Q’s levels go up all the way to sending off $18,000 if you can believe that). You download Q’s awesome postcards loaded with his persuasive mastery. You have your own referral number placed on these postcards. When you send these out to the masses, people will follow the instructions and login to the Too Damn Easy website and enter your referral number. They will then be closed by Q where he convinces them to buy into the Too Damn Easy system. They pay their $2000 which would go to you and then they download their postcards and send them out to the masses, etc…

“I’ll take Modern Pyramid Schemes for $200, Alex!"

I’ve got to hand it to this guy, he has built quite an elaborate scheme here. He has 10 different domains he’s running this program off of:


He also has a phone line you can call where you can listen to him talk about his sweet success. He offers up testimonials and even has it set up so you can download some information if you’re calling from a fax machine!

Is Too Damn Easy a scam? It’s definitely an elaborate and detailed scheme he’s put together. If Q put his efforts into something more straightforward (and legal)  there’s no doubt in my mind he’d be a legitimate success.

You also get access to a 25 page ebook that is utterly useless in my opinion. Yes it actually is 25 pages.  It explains the system in detail and touches on the different levels you can buy into.

All kidding aside, there are actual people throwing their actual money into this scheme. Is Too Damn Easy a scam? Sadly it is and it can get quite expensive.

is too damn easy a scam

People are being convinced that sending off up to $18,000 to a stranger is a good idea. They have visions of all these other strangers sending up to $18,000 to them. Don’t fall for this!

I don’t usually throw the “scam" word around lightly. Some opportunities may be expensive, and some may be doomed to plateau relatively quickly, but most usually offer up some kind of product or service making them legal.

This is not one of those opportunities. Is Too Damn Easy a scam? Yes. We don’t even know who Q is! There is no product or service here! It’s no wonder Q has made it impossible to track him. If people knew who he was there would definitely be lawyers drafting together a Too Damn Easy lawsuit. This is the capital of scam city!


As if it needs repeating, the answer to “Is Too Damn Easy a scam?" is a resounding yes. Are there cash gifting programs that work? The better question would be: are there cash gifting programs that work and are legal?  Cash gifting is almost always a workaround to make something sound legal that is not. Don’t fall for these scams!

There are much better ways to make money online. We’d all love to build an online business for ourselves as our own boss, right? The online community I found teaches just that, and there’s no cheesy postcards or large sums of money to send out. You’ll learn how to connect people with the products and services they’re already searching for online and get commissions every time they buy them. Create a free starter account and see if the training is for you. You’ve got nothing to lose.


What other opportunities have you seen that you’d like reviewed? Were you close to falling for an online scheme like this one? What has been your main hurdle to overcome when it comes to building a business online? Ask any questions you have and leave them in the comments below. Share your experience! I’m always here to offer my advice and I’m looking to help.


  • Ilias says:

    Well, two thousand dollars buy in and you never see the owner.

    I really cannot understand why people pay so much money just to get started.

    Based on what you have written above it is an obvious scam.

    But I would never join a so expensive program even if it had the best reviews on the internet.

  • Luna says:

    Hi Eric, this sounds like a Fairy Tale to me. I could understand the $1 but $18,000 is a lot of money. The title is telling his customers that it’s too damn easy to steal their money. I cannot believe people would fall for something like that. Ii is a Scam and I hope people will do their research before they do any kind of business online. Thanks for showing us what this person is up to.

  • Gina says:

    Hi Eric,
    OMG! I can’t really imagine someone sending $2000 to a stranger! I could see if it was $1 like the old chain letters that there may be some people who might go for it since $1 is not so much to gamble on trying to getting back much more. This has got to be one of the most asinine scams out there. You don’t have to worry about me falling for it.

    I shared your post to get the word out because there’s probably duplicate scams with lower dollars that people might actually fall for. Thanks so much Eric for the heads up on this one.
    I wish you the best,

    • Eric Cantu says:

      I appreciate that! And yes, $1 I can understand. Maybe even $20. $2000?? lol. Yeah I don’t think so. Sad to think people would fall for this. Thanks for the comment and getting the word out!

  • Awesome information, your post is well detailed like you said there are a lot of legit programs and a lot of scams that are out there. To know the difference we must and should do our homework so that we won’t be scammed. Sadly to say many have fallen for scams and have lost their hard earn money.
    And then are the good guys that are legit and will help you to make real money. Your readers will love the information that you are sharing.

  • Hi Eric, I’ve got to say this one caught my eye because first of all it was offering a lot of money, and second of all the reviewer claimed it was fake!
    I guess it comes to show us that not everything online is a scam, just some of the stuff, and you can normally notice the fakes.
    I also had a look at your #1 recommendation Wealthy Affiliate which looks awesome.
    Thank you,

  • Matthew Owen says:

    I haven’t actually heard of cash gifting programs but this article caught my eye and I was intrigued as to what they actually were so i thought I would take a look.
    I can’t believe that people actually fall for this, I mean, I’m struggling for money at the moment but I’m not stupid enough to get caught out by someone who named himself after a James bond charecter!
    Great review and I hope this post helps people to realise that they don’t have to fall for things like this

  • Dira says:

    First of Thank you for this article! It is very much needed. It’s unfortunate that there are people like this that take advantage of other people when they are vulnerable. In the beginning of my online journey I was not aware of these scams and they were not much sites like yours that provided accurate reviews. So yes I did lose a few bucks with some scams that I want to forget. What’s scary are the ones that seem like they’re legit. How did you find the training platform you mention? I’m going to check it out.

  • javiera says:

    Thank you so much for the information! I have been checking out a lot of websites about scams because I am looking to earn some money online! I love yours. Did you create this before or after your training?

  • Bailey says:

    Man, this stuff just makes me sick! I don’t know how Mr. “Q” can live with himself each and every day! The sad part is that so many people are struggling now and trying to find other ways to earn income and online seems like such a great way. Thank you for your review! I am so glad I saw your post before his and didn’t get sucked into his nonsense!

  • Judith says:

    Many years ago, when I was desperate for money, I looked at various Gifting programs. It seemed so easy, and if everyone would just do what you they were supposed to…. I think that if I did not need money, I would not have given them a second look. It came down to figuring out how much money was I willing to lose. Sounds like gambling, right. I never did it, because the common-sense part of me over ruled.
    This program absolutely is a scam, don’t waste your money. I am always amazed that people get involved! Are gifting programs even legal?
    Thanks for the warning!

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Great insight, Judith. I never thought of looking at it like that. It makes sense that when you’re needing money in a bad way you’re willing to take a gamble and calculate how much you’re willing to risk. It’s not that you don’t see the red flags, it’s that you’re calculating how much you’d be willing to bet despite them. Great point! And yes, with the $2000 minimum price tag on this one, it’s a wonder anyone would jump in.

      I really appreciate that comment. Thank you!

  • Maxx says:

    Amazing review.

    I had heard of these guys and now I see that my instincts were on point. It’s almost comical, yet like you said, people lose big money to schemes like this. Thank you! I hope more and more people able to read this before wasting their hard earned money.

    Great find overall.

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Thanks for the comment, Maxx. I hope this helps everyone realize that there are no cash gifting programs that work! Stay away from cash gifting schemes!

  • Emiel says:

    Good to know! I can’t believe people actually fall for this. Must be TOO DAMN EASY for Q, lol!I enjoyed reading this post though, very well written. Thanks for the information. Have you talked to any of the clients/victims? I wonder what they get for their money. Aswell, there must be a way to trace this guy via his payment methods.

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Thanks for the comment, Emiel. Unfortunately what most get for their $2000 is a 25 page ebook and a feeling of being suckered. Got to hand it to this guy. He’s smart enough to cover his tracks. There is no information available about him. I think most people who fall for this are too embarrassed to even pursue it further. It’s an expensive life lesson that’s for sure. Thanks for the comment!

  • Don says:

    Thank you for this! Some are so desperate and looking for answers that they will go against their own common sense and it takes a post like this to shake it back into them! Great advice. And you made me laugh too. Seems like you had fun with this one, bizarre as it is.

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Thanks, Don. I almost couldn’t believe how out there this system is when I researched it. But at the same time, I had to remember that there are people actually looking at this scheme like it’s a legit opportunity. I really hope anyone on the fence takes a look at this and snaps out of it. There are way better ways to make money online 🙂

      Thanks for the comment!

  • Dale says:

    Its too bad these scams are still out there. I guess they have been around since the dawn of time and will be around long after I am gone.

    The unfortunate part is most of these scammers prey on the people who are desperate, people who are on their last chance. So I guess all we can do is continue to educate like you are doing here. With help from yourself and many others like yourself Im sure we can save some people some disastrous results.

    Thanks again

  • scooter says:

    Cash Gifting. What a goofy scam…eh? I’ve saw this exact method before but it was only using the amount of five dollars and a list of people. You PayPal everyone one the five dollar list $5 and then put your name into the top spot and pass the list on. It is absolutely hilarious to me that someone is trying to do this make money online scam to the tune of $18,000. Too Damn Easy is definitely a scam. Good Call Eric!

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and start the whole chain letter thing, lol. You know that first guy raked it in! lol. All kidding aside, the more and more this stuff continues the more people lose out on their money. Hopefully this article helps a few people out there to see the light. Thanks for the comment!
