Lion Streams Review: Overpriced stream box & Ponzi ROIs

lion-streams-logoThere is no information on the Lion Streams website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The Lion Streams website domain (“”) was registered on the 13th of November 2015, however the domain registration is set to private.

Alexa currently estimate that 95% of traffic to the Lion Stream website originates out of the US. This strongly suggests that whoever is running Lion Streams is also based out of the US.

As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money. [Continue reading…]

Traffic N Bitcoin Review: Four tier bitcoin-based cash gifting

traffic-n-bitcoin-logoThere is no information on the Traffic N Bitcoin website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The Traffic N Bitcoin website domain (“”) was registered on the 6th of October 2016, however the domain registration is set to private.

If you visit the Traffic N Bitcoin website without a referer ID, the website informs you that you have been “invited by TrafficN Bitcoin”.

If you click the “register” button at the top of the page, “UNNIKRISHNAN G R” comes up as the referring affiliate.

This is not a randomly assigned affiliate, as the referer ID remains constant even when Chrome’s incognito mode (or other browser equivalent).

Seeing as “TrafficN Bitcoin” is obviously an admin account, it follows that “Unnikrishnan G R” is running the company.

unnikrishnan-gr-traffic-n-bitcoin-adminUnnikrishnan (right) however doesn’t appear to be working alone.

A post on Unnikrishnan’s Facebook profile dated October 12th, quoting Rozario Claudio, reads;

Hey Friends I am excited to inform you that I am going to own a matrix website of my own.

I am a partner with network marketing leaders like JO Sues, Raphel Rock, Abi Jith, Lavanya Sharath, Alena David, Bibin Aliasareeckal, Unnikrishnan GR, Akhil Kumar, Arun Kumar & Simon Hykins.

To get into the matrix at early stage during the launch itself; Comment on this post. I will add you to our secret fb group during prelaunch itself. Website launching will be probably on Wednesday or Thursday. Thanks.

Claudio’s quoted post is dated October 9th. Traffic N Bitcoin launched on October 12th, the Wednesday quoted in Claudio’s post.

As far as I can tell, all of the named Traffic N Bitcoin admins above are serial participants in MLM underbelly schemes.

Prior to launching Traffic N Bitcoin Unnikrishnan was promoting Matrix War, an eight-tier cash gifting scheme.

The Italian bank account was opened up with Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena on or around September 21st. Twenty-four hours or so later and it was gone.

Now it appears the OneCoin’s Hong Kong bank account has also been closed. [Continue reading…]

Crowd Cycler Review: Five-tier $235 ROI Ponzi cycler

crowd-cycler-logoThere is no information on the Crowd Cycler website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The Crowd Cycler website domain (“”) was registered on the 5th of October 2016. Eric Lant is listed as the owner, with an address in Brussels Belgium also provided.

The official Crowd Cycler Facebook page lists Jose Filho as the sole admin of the group.

jose-filho-crowd-cycler-adminFilho (right) is based out of Brazil and in emails sent out to affiliates refers to Crowd Cycler in the possessive.

Filho himself appears to be running the company, with details provided in the Crowd Cycler domain registration appearing to be bogus.

Earlier this year Filho was promoting Ad Profitizer, a 4% daily ROI Ponzi scheme.

USI-Tech Review: Automated forex platform & recruitment

usi-tech-logoThere is no information on the USI-Tech website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The USI-Tech website domain (“”) was registered on the 23rd of June, 2016. Joao Severino is listed as the owner of the domain, with an address in Portugal also provided.

Possibly due to language barriers, I was unable to put together an MLM history on Severino.

As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money. [Continue reading…]

Sun Money Network Review: Solar power Ponzi packages

sun-money-network-logoSun Money Network claim to have been created in 2015 and appears to be based out of Europe.

Tóth Levente is credited as General Manager of the company, with no further information provided.

There is a lawyer by the same name operating in Hungary, however this doesn’t appear to be the same person.

OneCoin cannot be used as payment method by merchants until 2018

onecoin-logoThe Facebook postings purportedly showing off merchants accepting OneCoin as a payment method are rampant.

I’ve seen restaurants in Europe, car dealerships in Asia, take-out joints in Australia – all represented as merchants accepting OneCoin.

You as a OneCoin affiliate simply walk in, purchase whatever it is you wanted, flop down your cell phone and pay with OneCoin.

This, OneCoin investors claim, is proof that OneCoin is a legitimate cryptocurrency.

As with most things related to OneCoin, turns out it’s a bunch of baloney. [Continue reading…]

goDesana Review: Heavily incentivized 31-day affiliate purchases

godesana-logogoDesana originally launched as Green Organics International in 2011 and are based out of Ohio in the US.

The company operates in the essential oils MLM niche and is headed up by Founder and CEO, Paula Scarcella.

The goDesana website domain was registered in 2013, suggesting this is when Green Organics International rebranded.

I did try to ascertain why Green Organics International rebranded as goDesana but came up blank.

paula-scarcella-founder-ceo-godesanaPaula Scarcella’s Green Organics International executive bio claims she got involved in MLM back in the 1990s.

Over the past 20 years Paula discovered a disconnect between company owners and their distributors.

After experiencing for herself the lack of integrity and dishonesty from company owners she decided to start her own company based on honesty, integrity and transparency.

From her experience as a distributor, Paula saw that the average person needed help, support and the right tools to reach that same success she did.

Based on this philosophy she started Green Organics to help propel people into reaching their goals and dreams.

Prior to launching Green Organics International, Scarcella was an affiliate with Essante (health and wellness) and Ultra International (essential oils). Whether either of these companies is referred to in Scarcella’s bio above is unclear.

In 2010 Scarcella launched Cycle for Wealth, a $45 matrix cycler Ponzi scheme.
