Pacific Affiliate Review: Pacific Ads twin Ponzi cycler scam

Pacific Affiliate provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Pacific Affiliate website domain (“pasaff.com”) was privately registered on May 22nd, 2017. The registration was recently updated on August 14th.

An infographic on the Pacific Affiliate website ties Pacific Affiliate to “Pacific Network”, which includes Pacific Advertising.

Pacific Ads is a Ponzi scheme run by Shakeel Babar (right) out of Malaysia.

Pacific Ads launched a few months ago and sees affiliates purchase positions in various Ponzi cycler plans.

It is likely recruitment activity in Pacific Ads has begun to stall, prompting Babar to launch Pacific Affiliate.

Traffic Share Partners Review: Adcredit Ponzi ROIs of up to 120%

Traffic Share Partners provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Traffic Share Partners website domain (“trafficsharepartners.com”) was privately registered on March 3rd, 2017. The registration was recently updated on August 18th.

The official Traffic Share Partners Facebook group has one admin, Linda Gomez.

Linda Gomez’s Facebook profile has no content other than a few profile photo changes since 2016.

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…]


Obtanix Review: 75 week ROIs and Xenos Ponzi points

Obtanix operates in the MLM niche and cite Alvey Gomer as their CEO.

No information on Alvey Gomer is available, either on the Obtanix website or via a third-party.

The Obtanix website domain (“obtanix.com”) was registered on August 19th, 2016. The registration was last updated on March 10th, 2017.

Darin Hadwin of Obtanix Holdings APS is listed as the owner, with an address in Copenhagen, Denmark also provided.

Hadwin’s name only appears online in connection with the Obtanix domain registration. As with Alvey Gomer, there is no third-party information about Hadwin available.

This suggests Alvey Gomer and Darin Hadwin, as represented by Obtanix, probably don’t exist.

Alexa meanwhile cites only two sources of traffic to the Obtanix website, India (61%) and Bangladesh (1%). Also of note are three questions in the Obtanix FAQ which are in Indonesian (looks like someone forgot to auto-translate the last three questions into English).

Back in June Obtanix published a job offer on Upwork, with the company’s location cited as Jakarta, Indonesia:

It is highly probable that whoever is actually running Obtanix is based out of India and/or Indonesia.

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…]


God Gift Matrix Review: Nine-tier bitcoin gifting scheme

God Gift Matrix provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The God Gift Matrix website domain (“godgiftmatrix.biz”) was privately registered on August 8th, 2017.

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…]


Akashic3 Review: Three-tier bitcoin matrix Ponzi cycler

Akashic3 provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Akashic3 website domain (“akashic3.com”) was privately registered on August 9th, 2017.

A marketing video on the Akashic3 website is hosted on a YouTube account bearing the name “opitimusx”:

OpitimusX is an alias of Sherm Mason.

Sherm Mason first popped up on BehindMLM’s radar as the admin of Magnetic Builder.

Magnetic Builder was a $29.95 recruitment scheme launched in 2011.

In 2015 Mason (right), launched at least five dubious schemes:

In 2016 Mason doubled down on his efforts and launched Elite Pay Alliance (matrix-based cash gifting), 5 Dolla Money Lines (pass-up chain-recruitment), Adstraordinary (matrix-based cash gifting) and Cash Rally GPS(Ponzi cycler).

So far this year Mason has launched Easy OddsJust Got Bitcoin1 Big Bitcoin Team and Stack My BitsBitQwik and I Like Bits. All of Mason’s MLM underbelly launches this year have either flopped at launch or collapsed.

Forex Entourage Review: Automated forex trading & securities fraud

Forex Entourage provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Forex Entourage website domain (“forexentourage.net”) was first registered on July 16th, 2013. The registration was recently updated on July 14th, 2017.

Sawicki Tomasz is listed as the owner, through an address in Roubaix, France.

Further research reveals this address has been used to register multiple website domains, suggesting it’s virtual in nature.

Forex Entourage provide two corporate addresses on their website, one in the US state of Utah and the other in the UK.

The UK address is a forwarding address. I couldn’t establish whether the Utah address was virtual

A BBB listing for Forex Entourage LLC was created on December 15th, 2016. The Utah address provided for Forex Entourage LLC in the BBB listing is different to that of their website.

The Forex Entourage LLC BBS listing cites Paul A Romero as “Managing Member” and Pablo Romero as “Coowner”.

These names lead me to Forex Entourage’s Instagram account, which names “Paul Rome” as CEO of the company.

Romero goes by his actual name on Facebook, as does Pablo Romero. Both their Facebook profiles cop out in early 2016, revealing nothing about their MLM or forex histories.

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…]


Infinity2Global criminal trial delayed, DOJ attorney will stay on case

With the jury trial on August 28th approaching, last month Richard Maike moved to have the case declared complex and the trial delayed.

Maike’s motion was filed with his wife Angela, Doyce Barnes and Richard Anzalone. Faraday Hosseinipour later filed a response in support of the motion.

The DOJ didn’t object and so on August 16th Judge McKinley vacated the August 28th trial date. [Continue reading…]


TresMore Review: Saivian daily Ponzi ROI clone

Tresmore operate in the cashback MLM niche and provide a corporate address in the US state of Georgia on their website.

Further research reveals this address belongs to “Thanks Matrix”, which Tresmore marketing material suggests is an umbrella corporation:

Thanks Matrix cite the same Tresmore corporate address as their global headquarters. A Korean headquarters corporate address is also provided.

Thanks Matrix itself appears to have previously tried to launch an MLM opportunity through Go7Shop.

Go7Shop is an e-commerce platform with an attached MLM compensation plan. Alexa traffic estimates for the Go7Shop suggest it never took off.

In the Tresmore marketing slide above, Joseph Lee (right) is cited as the CEO and President of Thanks Matrix.

The Tresmore website cites Lee as President of the company and co-CEO with Peter Sohn.

The Tresmore corporate bios for Lee and Sohn contain marketing copy and provide no information about either individual.

I tried to suss out MLM histories for Lee and Sohn and turned up nothing. This in itself is highly suspicious.

A third member of corporate manage is named on the Tresmore website, Michael Krause.

Again, nothing comes up other than Krause holding the same position in TMWellbeing, another company connected to Thanks Matrix.

Read on for a full review of the Tresmore MLM opportunity. [Continue reading…]


Upto Crypto Review: 200% ROI cryptocurrency trading Ponzi scheme

Upto Crypto provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Upto Crypto website domain (“uptocrypto.com”) was privately registered on July 2nd, 2017.

Certain parts of the Upto Crypto compensation plan are in French (émeraude, rubi etc.). Alexa also estimates that France is the largest source of traffic to the Upto Crypto website (26%).

This suggests that whoever is running Upto Crypto is French and/or based out of France.

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…]


Alpha Cash Review: 200% ROI Telegram Ponzi

Alpha Cash provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Alpha Cash website domain (“alpha-cash.com”) was privately registered on May 29th, 2017.

A “legal address” in Hong Kong is provided on the Alpha Cash website, however it appears the company is being operated from Russia. A second address provided on the Alpha Cash website is in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

Further supporting Alpha Cash being a wholly Russian company is the website presented in Russian, as well as the company’s official marketing videos. Alexa also estimate that the largest source of traffic to the Alpha Cash website is Russia (37%).

To what extent the Hong Kong address is legitimate, it appears Alpha Cash exists there in name only.

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…]
