KaratBars International to launch KaratBank Coin ICO

The latest MLM company to jump on the pointless altcoin launch is Karatbars International.

For those unfamiliar with the company, Karatbars International combines pyramid recruitment with a token gold offering.

While gold is available for purchase through the company, the focus of the compensation plan is getting people to sign up with affiliate packages.

You wouldn’t know that from visiting the Karatbars International website though, as the company is notoriously secretive about its MLM business opportunity. [Continue reading…]

BeeCash Review: BEH points ICO lending Ponzi scheme

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

The BeeCash website domain (“beecash.co”) was registered on November 28th, 2017.

“Beecash coin” is listed as the owner with what appears to be bogus details (eg. “Registrant City: United Stage”).

Official BeeCash marketing videos are narrated with a thick European accent. This suggests that whoever is running the company is likely also based out of Europe.

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…]

QatarCoin Review: QTC points ICO lending Ponzi

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

The QatarCoin website domain (“qatarcoin.co”) was privately registered on November 19th, 2017.

Despite the name, it appears QatarCoin has nothing to do with Qatar.

At the time of publication Alexa estimate Nigeria (20%) and India (11%) are the top two sources of traffic to the QatarCoin website.

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…]

Naturally Plus Review: Hydrogenated water for $30 a liter?

Naturally Plus operate in the nutrition MLM niche and are based out of Tokyo, Japan.

In addition to Japan, Naturally Plus has offices in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei and the US.

Naturally Plus was founded in 1999 and is headed up by CEO and President, Takaaki Nagoshi.

Nagoshi’s Naturally Plus corporate bio reveals nothing about himself and instead reads as an advertisement for the company.

Naturally Plus in the US goes by the acronym “NPUSA” and is headed up by CEO and Director, Takashi Tajima (right).

Beginning his career with an explosive success in the industry as a top distributor in a Japanese MLM company, earning several million USD in his 20’s, Takashi joined Naturally Plus as an executive in charge of opening one of the first offices overseas in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

With more than a decade of involvement, as a skilled trainer, he has guided hundreds of Naturally Plus Affiliates in Asia to achieve their success, and now, he takes the lead to bringing that opportunity to the United States.

Possibly due to language-barriers, I was unable to research what MLM companies Tajima had been involved in prior to signing up with Naturally Plus.

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

This corresponds with an address in Ticino, Switzerland provided in the footer of the Arkonix Mining website.

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…]


Saivian Ponzi President EJ Dalius buys $16.5 million Miami mansion

One of the larger Ponzi scheme launches of 2015 was Saivian.

Initially headed up John Sheehan, Saivian’s business model was as pure of a Ponzi scheme as they come:

Pay $125 a month, recruit others who did the same and earn up to $3000 a day. That’s it.

Despite operating out of the US, for some reason Saivian didn’t attract the attention of the SEC. At least not publicly. [Continue reading…]
