Super BTC Matrix Review: 2×7 matrix bitcoin gifting scheme

Super BTC Matrix provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Super BTC Matrix website domain (“superbtcmatrix.com”) was privately registered on April 2nd, 2017.

Further research reveals a former Super Cash Pay affiliate claiming the same admin is now promoting Super BTC Matrix. I myself was unable to independently verify this information.

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…]


Click Funnels Review: Internet sales funnel + 2 levels of recruitment

Click Funnels operate in the internet marketing MLM niche and are based out of Idaho in the US.

The Click Funnels website identifies Russell Brunson as CEO of the company.

On his Facebook bio, Brunson (right) refers to himself as a “top super affiliate”.

For over 12 years now Russell has been starting and growing companies online.

He owns a software company, a supplement company, a coaching company, and is one of the top super affiliates in the world.

Brunson is heavily involved in internet marketing, primarily developing and promoting marketing tools which he then sells.

There is some crossover with these tools with respect to being able to market MLM opportunities. The only MLM opportunities I was able to tie Brunson to as an affiliate though are Pure Leverage (gifting scheme attached to blog platform) and Rippln (disastrous attempt at an MLM app company).

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


BaFin clarify, OneCoin must cease and desist operations in Germany

In response to the German regulatory crackdown on OneCoin’s shell company IMS International Marketing Services, OneCoin issued a press-release claiming BaFin’s cease and desist did not specifically apply to OneCoin.

Please be informed that the recently published BaFin message does not relate to OneLife or OneCoin’s Business, but to IMS GmBh.

The company IMS is a Service Provider, who supported OneLife in Payment Facilitation and Marketing Services.

OneLife and OneCoin are separate and independent legal entities.

While IMS, OneCoin and OneLife might technically be “separate entities”, in reality all three are operated by OneCoin management.

BaFin are naturally aware of this, and today issued clarification on their earlier notice. [Continue reading…]


Malta issues OneCoin regulatory warning

Whereas some countries are taking a more proactive approach against OneCoin, others still grapple with a lack of regulatory authorization.

The latest country to fall into the latter category is Malta, following a OneCoin warning issued by the Malta Financial Services Authority. [Continue reading…]


Norwegian Gaming Board mulls going after OneCoin affiliates

When a regulator tells OneCoin or one of its shell companies to stop operating in a country, OneCoin’s standard response is “but OneCoin doesn’t operate in that country!”.

Technically OneCoin operates out of Bulgaria, through a shell Dubai incorporation. OneCoin was incorporated in Gibraltar but was kicked out late last year.

In an effort to combat the ruse of not operating in a country despite soliciting investment from thousands of local investors, the Norwegian Gaming Board has announced it is considering going after local OneCoin affiliates. [Continue reading…]


Powerhouse Feeder Review: Eight tier $7 matrix cycler Ponzi

Powerhouse Feeder identify three company owners on their website; Darren Bradbury and Eddie Harrison from the UK and Eldon Conceicao from the US.

In his Powerhouse Feeder corporate bio, Darren Bradbury claims he’s been ‘living the laptop lifestyle and earning multiple 6 figure incomes for 6+ years‘.

Eddie Harrison’s bio states he’s ‘been in network marketing and internet marketing for 3+ years‘. Conceicao has purportedly ‘been in the web/software development industry for over 15 years‘.

MLM opportunities Darren Bradbury has promoted on his YouTube channel include My 24 Hour Income (collapsed Ponzi scheme), Leased Ad Space (cash gifting), GiftoBit (cash gifting), ZarFund (cash gifting), Stiforp (pyramid scheme) and My Ad Story (Ponzi scheme).

Eddit Harrison also promoted My 24 Hour Income, ZarFund, Stiforp and My Ad Story, in addition to Freedom5 (another Ponzi scheme).

Eldon Conceicao lists himself as a freelance website developer based out of Massachusetts. Powerhouse Feeder appears to be his first MLM venture.

My Trader Coin Review: $550 a day cryptocurrency trading ROI?

My Trader Coin provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

At the time of publication Alexa estimate that the top five sources of traffic to the My Trader Coin website are Ecuador (25%), Brazil (19%), Spain (15%), the US (14%) and the Dominican Republic (11%).

This corresponds with English, Spanish and Portuguese being offered languages for the My Trader Coin website.

It is highly likely that whoever is running My Trader Coin is based out of South America, the US or Spain.

Further research reveals André Feitosa being credited as a “top leader” in My Trader Coin.

Feitosa is/was good buddies with Sann Rodrigues and has been scamming people as far back as the iFreeX Ponzi scheme (early 2015).

Whether Feitosa was also a TelexFree Ponzi investor is unclear.

Last year Feitosa was promoting Bit Trader Banking. Having reviewed My Trader Coin’s business model in retrospect, both companies share identical compensation plans.

Alexa statistics suggest Bit Trader Banking recruitment flatlined in February, 2017. My Trader Coin was launched in March and by all appearances is a reboot.

André Feitosa being at the top of both schemes suggests he’s either running it or in with those that are (not unlike Sann Rodrigues running iFreeX but claiming he was only an affiliate).

The Ads Leader Review: Adcredit Ponzi with ties to My 24 Hour Income

The Ads Leader provide no information about who owns or runs the business on their website.

The Ads Leader website domain (“theadsleader.com”) was privately registered on October 18th, 2016.

Marketing videos on the official The Ads Leader YouTube channel are hosted by Patrick Collins. In the videos, Collins credits himself as “The Ads Leader Marketing Director”.

In a video on his own YouTube channel, Collins (right) states he’s ‘going to be managing the (The Ads Leader) website, strictly on a marketing basis‘.

Through the High Five Consultant co-op, Collins spent most of 2016 promoting various “revshare” and forex Ponzi schemes. Traffic Monsoon (shut down by the SEC) and My 24 Hour Income (collapsed) stand out as prominent examples.

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…]


Stack My Bits Review: 2×10 bitcoin gifting scheme

Stack My Bits provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.

The Stack My Bits website domain (“stackmybits.com”) was registered on March 18th, 2017. Optimus Dale is listed as the owner, with an address in the US state of Arkansas also provided. Optimus Dale 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.

sherm-mason-3x9-millionaire-machine-adminIn 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).

This year Mason has already launched three collapsed gifting scams; Easy OddsJust Got Bitcoin and 1 Big Bitcoin Team.

1 Big Bitcoin Team launched only last month, the collapse of which has likely prompted Mason to try again with Stack My Bits.

BeReal Estate Review: Reselling property leases = 130% annual ROI?

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

The BeReal Estate website domain (“bereal.estate”) was privately registered on August 16th, 2016.

The BeReal Estate website lists three corporate addresses on their website, one in the UK, one in the Netherlands and one in Bulgaria.

The UK address belongs to London Presence, who offer virtual address services on their website.

A search of the Netherlands and Bulgarian addresses reveal multiple company’s using the same addresses, suggesting they are virtual in nature too.

As such it appears BeReal Estate exists in the UK, the Netherlands and Bulgaria in name only.

Alexa currently estimate Germany is the largest source of traffic to the BeReal Estate website (37%). India (17%) and Slovakia (11%) are second and third respectively.

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…]
