Did Talk Fusion pay off affiliates who made pyramid allegations?

Talk Fusion is an MLM company that primarily markets an email video product suite.

BehindMLM reviewed Talk Fusion in 2014 and concluded the company’s ‘paid video communication services … are entirely redundant.

The follow on from this is that retail is likely to be virtually non-existent. And as per the FTC, an MLM company without significant retail activity taking place is operating as a pyramid scheme.

My suspicions about Talk Fusion were seemingly confirmed following the filing of two lawsuits alleging the company was indeed a pyramid scheme. [Continue reading…]


Dennis Gray’s RICO lawsuit dismissed after he rejoins Talk Fusion

In late 2015 former affiliate Dennis Gray filed a class-action RICO lawsuit against Talk Fusion.

In his lawsuit Gray alleged he had been

deceived by the Talk Fusion’s misleading business opportunity, falsely believing it was a legitimate way to earn money, and did lose money as a result of Defendants’ unfair and unlawful business practices.

Gray (right) alleged those “unlawful business practices” are the operation of ‘a pyramid scheme disguised as a multi-level marketing (“MLM”) company‘.

The case played out and in August, 2016, was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction in California and transferred to Florida.

There the case continued for almost another year, before it was dismissed again on July 25th, 2017. [Continue reading…]


Mema Review: Third-party telephonic services

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

The Mema website domain (“mema.co.za”) was registered by Quinton Le Grange on August 3rd, 2008.

Quinton registered the Mema address through a PO Box in Cape Town, South Africa.

On his Facebook profile Le Grange states he “works at Mema”. Whether he owns the company is unclear.

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…]

Affinity Business Network Review: Health insurance lacking information

Affinity Business Network provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Affinity Business Network website domain (“affinitybn.co.za”) was registered by “affinitybn” on June 6th, 2016.

An address in Gauteng, South Africa is provided, which is presumably where Affinity Business Network is operated from.

Further research reveals Fred Andalaft (right) crediting himself as founder of Affinity Business Network on his LinkedIn profile.

Why this information isn’t provided on the Affinity Business Network website is unclear.

Other than a marketing interview on LinkedIn, there isn’t any information publicly available on Andalaft’s history prior to founding Affinity Business Network.

Presumably Affinity Business Network is Andalaft’s first MLM venture as an executive.

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


USI-Tech lied about $70 million dollar BitFury contract?

Not content with spreading lies about registering their Ponzi scheme with the SEC, USI-Tech and their affiliates are spreading porky pies about a contract with BitFury.

The Bitfury Group develops and delivers both the software and the hardware solutions necessary for businesses, governments, organizations and individuals to securely move an asset across the Blockchain.

USI-Tech marketing material promoting a $70 million dollar deal between the company and BitFury began circulating about three days ago. [Continue reading…]


My Cycler to reboot as cryptocurrency mining package Ponzi

Manos Sergakis launched My Cycler a year ago after his One World Ads Ponzi scheme collapsed.

My Cycler offers Ponzi ROIs through a five-tier matrix cycler.

Alexa traffic estimates show a decline in My Cycler traffic  throughout 2017:

What this means for a cycler Ponzi is that recruitment has slowed down such that the majority, if not all of the company-wide matrices have stalled.

In a nutshell, over the past year Sergakis (right) has stolen who knows how much money from My Cycler affiliates. He’s achieved this through admin positions and funds attached to positions trapped in stalled matrices.

Rather than cut his losses, admit the majority of My Cycler affiliates will cop a loss and do a runner, Sergakis is doubling down with a new scam.

In line with the current MLM underbelly trend, Sergakis is relaunching My Cycler as a cryptocurrency mining scam. [Continue reading…]

Leniex Review: 360 day ROIs of up to 288%

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

The Leniex website domain (“leniex.com”) was privately registered on May 30th, 2017.

Leniex provide incorporation documents on their website for Leniex Inc. in New York.

This appears to be a shell incorporation purchased for $125 on July 18th. The address used to incorporate Leniex Inc belongs to a third-party office space supplier.

Alexa estimates traffic to the Leniex website exclusively originates out of Europe. The use of Telegram and corporate Vkontakte social media profile strongly suggests Leniex is being run by admin(s) in Russia or the Ukraine.

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…]
