Pure Profit Pro Review: $250 to $1000 cash gifting

There is no information on the Pure Profit Pro website indicating who owns or runs the business.

Infact there is no information period, with the Pure Profit Pro website currently nothing more than an affiliate login page:

pure-profit-pro-logo

Clicking on the “pay admin fee” button causes the site to demand an affiliate referral code.

The Pure Profit Pro website domain (“pureprofitpro.com”) was registered on the 30th of December 2015, however the domain registration is set to private.

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…]


Elevacity Review: Travopoly hitched to another MLM opp

elevacity-logoThere is no information on the Elevacity website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The Elevacity website domain (“elevacity.com”) was registered on the 26th of January 2014, however the domain registration is set to private.

Further research reveals Robert Oblon identified as Founder and CEO of the company. Why this information is not presented on the Elevacity website is unclear.

On his LinkedIn profile, Oblon cites his location as Texas. The Elevacity website Terms states that the company has ‘offices within the State of Texas, U.S. of America‘.

robert-oblon-ceo-founder-elevacityPrior to launching Elevacity, Oblon (right) was President of World Ventures. He also held a 5% ownership stake in the company.

World Ventures is a travel niche MLM company that primarily pays affiliates to recruit new affiliates.

Oblon also owned Travopoly, which as I understand it was a vendor World Ventures provided travel discounts through.

In 2011 World Ventures filed a lawsuit against Oblon and Travopoly, accusing them of violating a Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation agreement.

I did try to look up the outcome of the case but was unsuccessful.

After Oblon left World Ventures, Travopoly appears to have continued on as a stand-alone vacation platform.

Oblon launched FourOceans Global in 2015, through which Elevacity is offered. Travopoly is featured on the Elevacity website as a “partner” of the company.

thanda-travel-logoThanda Travel claim to be a ‘privately owned company based in South Africa‘.

Identified as CEO of the company on the Thanda Travel website is Daniella Le Roux (full name: Daniella Beukes Le Roux).

daniella-beukes-le-roux-ceo-thanda-travelMLM opportunities Le Roux (right) has been an affiliate with include Pro Travel Plus and Volishon.

Both companies operated in the MLM travel niche, with affiliates primarily paid to recruit new affiliates.

Fort Ad Pays Ponzi collapses, 40,000 investors lose money

fort-ad-pays-logoInvesting in a Ponzi scheme built on another Ponzi scheme was never a good idea, but that’s exactly what Fort Ad Pays offered.

SuperAdShare Review: VIP matrix recruitment commissions

superadshare-logoThere’s no explicit information on the SuperAdShare website identifying the owner of the company.

If you hover your mouse over the Skype admin contact button on the footer of the website though, the Skype username “knelson3872” comes up.

This corresponds with a “testimonial” provided by Keith Nelson, who appears to be the SuperAdShare admin.

keith-nelson-admin-testimonial-superadshare

Why Nelson is providing a testimonial for his own opportunity that hasn’t even launched yet, is unclear.

Nelson appears to have begun his MLM career with Solavei back in 2012. Solavei collapsed and closed down its MLM opportunity in November, 2015.

Buried between a sea of religious podcast tweets on his Twitter profile, is a recent referral link for AdsPayPro.

AdsPayPro was a Ponzi scheme launched late last year. Affiliates invested $50 on the promise of an advertised $60 ROI, paid out of subsequently invested funds.

AdsPayPro collapsed last month, likely prompting Nelson to launch SuperAdShare.

Mega Profit Cycler Review: Four-tier Ponzi queues

mega-profit-cycler-logoThere is no information on the Mega Profit Cycler website indicating who owns or runs the business.

The Mega Profit Cycler website domain (“megaprofitcycler.com”) was registered on the 6th of May 2016, however the domain registration is set to private.

Margaret Oddy created and admins the official Mega Profit Cycler Facebook group. A post Oddy made a few hours ago claims Richard Cooper and Virginia Addy own the company.

My name is Richard Cooper. I’m the main admin in MPC, and reside in Canada along with my co-admin, Virginia Addy.

Neither Richard Cooper or Virginia Addy appear on the list of Mega Profit Cycler Facebook group members.

I also wasn’t able to find any additional information on Cooper or Addy, with Margaret Oddy appearing to be the sole face of the company.

margaret-oddy-teamvinh-investor-mega-profit-cyclerUp until recently, Oddy’s Facebook profile  publicly identified herself as a Team Vinh affiliate.

Team Vinh was a $3 million dollar Ponzi scheme shut down by the SEC late last year. Whether Richard Cooper and/or Virginia Addy were investors in the scheme too is unclear.

5 Dollar Leveraging System Review: 9 tier matrix cycler

5-dollar-leveraging-system-logo5 Dollar Leveraging System launched earlier this month and name Randy Garrard as owner of the company.

Garrard first appeared on BehindMLM last year as the owner of Residual Income In a Box (RIIAB).

randy-garrard-residual-income-in-a-box-adminThrough RIIAB, Garrard (right) funneled people under him in various MLM underbelly schemes.

Alexa rankings for the RIAAB website suggest the scheme is in decline, which has likely prompted the launch of 5 Dollar Leveraging System.
