Everywhere you look on the internet, there are “opportunities” you can find with “full proof systems” that claim to be able to get you rich. Some sound more legit than others. The cash gifting opportunity called Too Damn Easy is a bizarre one you need to see to believe. What is Too Damn Easy About? Is Too Damn Easy a scam? What is cash gifting? Are there cash gifting programs that work? How does Too Damn Easy work?
I’ve reviewed all kinds of business opportunities online. From training platforms with “Done For You” systems that charge tens of thousands to opportunities where you answer surveys for what turns out to be pocket change. And then there are all the popular multilevel marketing schemes, ranging from worldwide travel clubs to skin care products. The majority aren’t scams and offer some sort of product or service that’s legit. Too Damn Easy on the other hand is all about cash gifting, and from the onset your red flags should be raising very quickly.
In this Too Damn Easy review (with video) I’m going to show you the unbelievable premise Too Damn Easy uses. Sit back and watch the bizarre promises “Q” (the mysterious founder) makes. I’ll show you the materials he uses to convince people to send large amounts of money to strangers. Finally, I’ll leave you with a much better alternative to this bizarre method of earning money that won’t leave you broke. So, what is Too Damn Easy about? Is it a scam? Are there cash gifting programs that work? Let’s find out.

So What is Cash Gifting? Are There Cash Gifting Programs that Work?
What is cash gifting? Cash gifting dates back way before the internet. Yes, there was a world that existed before the internet. It is a popular pyramid scheme where money is exchanged, but there is no actual service rendered. This is what makes pyramid schemes illegal. Instead, payments are promised for enrolling others into the same scheme.
Let me explain.
This used to be popular with chain letters. You would receive a letter in the mail with 5 names and addresses on it and instructions that you are to follow.
Step 1: send $1 to each of the names and 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 here is that when you sent your chain letter out to 10 people who then follow the instructions and 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.
What more do you need to know? You’re rich! (Not really). As you well know, these things NEVER work!
So what is Too Damn Easy about? Too Damn Easy is about putting a modern internet spin on a dated pyramid scheme aimed at finding VERY GULLIBLE and usually desperate people.
How Does Too Damn Easy Work?
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 literally nothing more you know about him. You hear his voice, but you never see his face.
This should raise huge red flags.
When you go to the TooDamnEasy.com website you’re greeted with an out of focus video showing a super close up view of 600 stacked $100 bills. You’ll see stacks of money on the floor, stacks of money on a table, and stacks of money in a cash counting machine. Most of Q’s videos follow this theme, and the video itself is, well, bizarre.
When you enroll with this system, you are provided with Too Damn Easy instructions:
Is Too Damn Easy a Scam? The Many 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 completely 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. And if you believe the Too Damn Easy instructions, it will do 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! (Huge red flag).
May I present Exhibit A, the postcard:
To paraphrase the front of that card, seriously, this is just waaaaaay too damn ridiculous. It amazes me that anyone in their right mind would take this seriously. To be asked to send a minimum of $2000 off to a stranger after reading a postcard like that should raise every single red flag you’ve ever imagined in your entire life!
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!”
The Truth About the Too Damn Easy Scam
I’ve got to hand it to this guy, Q has built quite an elaborate scam here.
What Too Damn Easy is about is simply preying on the minds of the gullible and desperate. There are still those out there who believe if they read something online then it must be true. How could this guy promise things like this if they didn’t work. Maybe it doesn’t work for most, but what if it works for you? These are the thoughts that can fill one’s head when you throw common sense out the window.
Don’t be that guy.
Pay attention to the red flags.
Don’t throw away your hard earned money.
Additionally, Q has 10 different domains he’s running this program off of.
“Q” also has a phone line you can call where you can listen to him talk about his sweet success. He offers up testimonials and vague “proof” of the validity of his system.
He even has it set up so you can download some information if you’re calling from a fax machine.
Like most cash gifting schemes, yes, it is in fact worthy of being called a scam. If Q put these kinds of 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.
And as you can see, it can get quite expensive.
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 back to them. Don’t fall for this!
I don’t usually throw the “scam” word around lightly. While some opportunities may be expensive, and some may be doomed to plateau relatively quickly, 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.
What is Too Damn Easy about? It’s a cash gifting scheme using a modern take on chain letters.
Your first of many red flags is the mystery and slipperiness behind the founder. We don’t even know who Q is! Second, 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, DO NOT PUT YOUR MONEY INTO THE TOO DAMN EASY CASH GIFTING SCHEME! Cash gifting is almost always a workaround to make something sound legal that is not.
Don’t fall for these scams!
There are much, much better ways to make money online. We’d all love to build an online business for ourselves and be our own boss, right? The online community and training platform I’m a part of teaches entrepreneurial minded people how to do just that. If that’s something you’re interested in, I can’t recommend it highly enough. I’ve had nothing but positives from it, and you can try it free for yourself to see if it’s for you.
Even better, there’s no cheesy postcards or large sums of money to send out.
