Welcome to my CB Passive Income review. I saw a lot of other people were talking about this, so I thought it would be good to take a look at it and see what all the fuss is about. Is it legit or is it a scam? Let’s find out…
Product Name: CB Passive Income
Owner: Patric Chan
Overall Ranking: Bad
What His Website Claims
When you first go on their website you are greeted with the following dramatic headline:
WOW! Sounds great doesn’t it?
Below this is a video:
To cut a long story short, the video claims that CB Passive Income can provide you with a hands-off email marketing business. Apparently you don’t need to do any selling, all the selling is done for you by this guy. You just send out a free report to people and then this guy tries to sell Clickbank products to them.
According to the video, here is a quick breakdown of what you get:
- Your own clone web page which you don’t need to do anything to (it’s all done for you).
- A “valuable” free gift that you can give away.
- A continual income stream.
- A lifetime of commission
- A solid business
- Promotion training
Well, this all sounds great doesn’t? But what if it’s too good to be true? Let’s take a closer look…
How to Tell if Something is a Scam
When you’ve seen as many “make money online” scams as I have, you start to learn how to spot a scam. There are certain telltale signs that can indicate that a product is likely to be a scam. There are also signs that can indicate that a product is genuine. Once you know what kind of things to look out for, all it takes is a bit of intelligence and you can get a pretty good idea of whether a product is worth buying or whether you should just leave it well alone.

Alternatively, you can follow me as I play detective and try to figure out if this is a scam or not…
What factors would indicate that it is genuine?
- Does it sound realistic? – No, not really. The idea that all you need to do is give people a free product and then this guy sells them products on your behalf, that seems a bit unrealistic to me.
- Does he admit that it will take work? – No, he claims the opposite. He says that he does all the work for you. Why would anyone do that? There must be some kind of catch!
- Does he sound genuine? No. The video sounds scripted to me, and too sales-like. He didn’t come across as a genuine person in the video. If he had spoken directly to the camera I would have found him more genuine.
- Can you take a look inside? – No, the sales video doesn’t show you inside the product. It tells you how it works, yes, but you don’t get to actually take a look inside.
- Can you try it for free? – No. If you want access, it will cost you $47. No free trial, no quick look inside. Nothing. If you want to try it out you’re going to have to pay that $47.
Genuineness score: 0%
What factors would indicate that it is a scam?
- Does it sound too good to be true? – Yes, quite honestly. To be able to completely copy someone else’s business and do hardly any work and yet earn loads of money? It sounds perfect doesn’t it? And that’s a bad thing.
- Does he promise you’ll become rich really quickly? – No, actually, this is one way in which he is a bit more realistic with his claims. He does admit that this will not make you rich overnight.
- Is he secretive about the methods involved? – No. He actually spells out quite clearly how the system works. Whether or not the system works as advertised is a separate issue. But the fact is he’s not being secretive about what’s involved.
- Does he claim it’s “never been seen before”? – No, he doesn’t actually claim this as such. I think what he’s selling is not necessarily a new approach to making money online. I think it’s just the exact way he’s doing it is a bit different to other approaches out there, for example how it is apparently so “hands off”.
- Is the video recorded by an actor? – I think it might be. Well, even if it is the real Patric Chan speaking in the video, it still sounds scripted to me. Actually, there are several moments where he makes mistakes and says the wrong words. I would have preferred to have seen him actually talk to the camera, as Adam Short did for Niche Profit Classroom.
- Does he claim it that you won’t have to work? – Yes, he kind of does. He says that all you need to do is to give people a free product, then he does all the selling for you. Seems a bit too easy to be realistic.
