Maxpread Technologies Review: AI trading Boris CEO Ponzi

Maxpread Technologies fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.

Maxpread Technologies’ website domain (“maxpread.com”), was privately registered on July 2nd, 2022.

Through the Wayback Machine, we can see Maxpread Technologies’ current website went live on or around November 2022.

Despite only existing for a few months, Maxpread Technologies falsely claims it “has been operating for more than 5 years”.

In an attempt to appear legitimate, Maxpread Technologies provides incorporation details for Maxpread Technologies LTD in Hong Kong.

For the purpose of MLM due-diligence, shell company incorporation in any jurisdiction is meaningless.

An official marketing video embedded on Maxpread Technologies website consists of stock footage, narrated over by someone with an eastern-European accent.

A visit to Maxpread Technologies’ official YouTube channel reveals a second bizarre marketing video, depicting a press-conference in India.

The blond guy with the mic and an obvious Russian accent, seems to be running the event. He introduces the guy sitting next to him in the white waistcoat, as someone “very famous and recognized influenced businessman in the north part of Russia”.

“Albert Ignatev” speaks Russian and apparently isn’t fluent in English.

Beyond verifying ties to Russia, I wasn’t able to dig up anything concrete on the man playing Albert Ignatev.

SimilarWeb currently tracks top sources of traffic to Maxpread Technologies website as Venezeula (38%), Germany (16%) and Vietnam (15%).

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…]



Evolution Network Review: Mishmash services pyramid scheme

Evolution Network fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.

Evolution Network’s website domain (“evolution.network”), was first registered in July 2019. The private registration was last updated on July 21st, 2022.

Through the Wayback Machine we can see Evolution Network’s domain was disabled due to an error up until mid 2022.

The domain was parked in August 2022, with Evolution Network’s current website going live sometime thereafter.

This strongly suggests Evolution Network’s owner acquired the domain in July 2022.

Evolution Network marketing videos cite Ruben Arcas as founder and President of the company:

Ruben Arcas is a serial scammer from Spain.

BehindMLM first came across Arcas in 2016, as co-founders of the PoolMiners Ponzi scheme.

PoolMiners collapsed towards the end of 2016 and was rebooted as Infinitum Flame. Infinitum Flame collapsed in 2018.

In 2020 Arcas resurfaced as “Network Development Manager” for the Mind Capital Ponzi scheme.

Mind Capital began to collapse towards the end of 2020. Investors were strung along until August 2021, wherein Mind Capital’s website was finally disabled.

Despite scamming consumers for years in multiple Ponzi schemes, Spanish authorities have failed to take action against Arcas.

UEZ Markets Review: AI trading ruse Ponzi scheme

UEZ Markets fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.

UEZ Markets’ website domain (“uezmarkets.com”), was registered back in December 2020. The private registration was last updated on November 25th, 2022.

Through the Wayback machine we learn “uezmarkets.com” was up for sale since 2021.

The domain was eventually purchased by UEZ Markets’ owner(s) in late 2022. It should be noted that UEZ Markets’ domain appears to have been sold along with various social media profiles.

These domain package sales are not uncommon. UEZ Market’s purchased social media profiles creates the illusion that the company, as presented today, is older than it is.

Despite only existing for barely over a month, UEZ Markets falsely claims it has a “5+ year history”.

Further blowing a hole in how long UEZ Markets has been around is the domain “uezmarkets.sc”:

As you can see this is a clone of UEZ Markets’ primary website.

“Uezmarkets.sc” was privately registered on December 19th, 2022. Despite this, the website states;

UEZ Markets Limited was founded and incorporated in the Republic of Seychelles in 2015.

Whether UEZ Markets Seychelles has been set up as a backup for the primary website, or whether it was an intended alternative branding, is unclear.

UEZ Markets marketing material cites “Conor Burns” as founder and CEO of the company.

Marcus Jenssen and Mason Kong are cited as UEZ Markets’ CTO and VP of APAC respectively.

None of these people exist outside of UEZ Markets’ marketing material. This includes social media profiles set up as bogus digital footprints.

A January 13th marketing video on UEZ Markets’ YouTube channel depicts a Boris CEO event held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

UEZ Markets also has an official Bilibili account:

Bilibili is a Chinese YouTube clone.

Putting all of this together, UEZ Markets appears to be run by scammers operating out of south-east Asia.

Based on the Mason Kong actor’s accent and Malaysian event, I’d guess UEZ Markets is being run from Singapore, Malaysia or both countries.

In an attempt at legitimate, UEZ Markets provides shell company details in the Cayman Islands, Switzerland and Australia.

For the purpose of MLM due-diligence, shell company incorporation in any jurisdiction is meaningless.

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…]


Money Power Wealth Review: Troy Mason reboots 25X Club

Money Power Wealth fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.

Money Power Wealth’s website domain (“moneypowerwealth.com”), was privately registered on September 29th, 2022.

A BehindMLM reader tipped me off about Money Power Wealth being a 25X Club reboot last week.

Sure enough if you visit 25X Club’s website domain, it now redirects to Money Power Wealth.

25X Club was launched last April by Troy Mason. 25X Club was a reboot of Our Gas Club, itself only launched a month earlier in March 2022.

Before Our Gas Club Troy Mason was running Ztegrity.

Ztegrity was initially a forex themed scam. Mason rebooted Ztegrity as a gas card pyramid scheme after the CFTC sued for commodities fraud in mid 2021.

In October 2022, Mason settled the CFTC’s Ztegrity lawsuit for $943,570.

Mason’s last 25X Club marketing video was posted on his YouTube channel on October 27th.

Sometime after that 25X Club was rebooted as Money Power Wealth.

Read on for a full review of Money Power Wealth’s MLM opportunity. [Continue reading…]


Daisy Forex Review: Jeremy Roma heads up EndoTech Ponzi

Back in 2020 Daisy AI surfaced as a Ponzi scheme pushed out by EndoTech.

EndoTech pitched itself as a Israeli crypto trading bot firm headed up by Anna Becker and Dmitry Gushchin.

BehindMLM reviewed Daisy AI on December 3rd, 2020. We found a typical MLM crypto Ponzi dressed up as “equity crowdfunding”.

Since publishing our review, EndoTech has positioned itself as a firm that enables other companies to commit securities fraud.

Daisy AI is one of those companies, with Jeremy Roma emerging as the face of the operation.

In hindsight Roma was likely always behind Daisy AI, but this was masked when Daisy AI launched.

Having scammed a bunch of people and stashed a bit of ill-gotten gains away, Roma has gotten more comfortable associating himself with Daisy AI.

Roma is a US national who relocated to Dubai as part of his transition to crypto fraud. In line with his confidence in getting away with fraud growing, Roma now spends his time between Dubai and the US.

Roma’s MLM origins date back to selling coffee at Organo Gold. In 2019, a year before Daisy AI launched, BehindMLM came across Roma in Apex.

Apex was a $13,750 five-year investment crypto mining Ponzi. Apex in its original incarnation lasted a few months.

Roma tried to keep the Ponzi going with former OneCoin scammers but that didn’t last long.

Roma transitioned into crypto fraud in or around 2018 through Holton Buggs, a disgraced Organo Gold founder turned crypto Ponzi scammer in his own right.

Since its 2020 launch Daisy AI has collapsed numerous times. BehindMLM hasn’t really been tracking Daisy AI’s collapses, but we did document the “daisy token” exit-scam in 2021.

The latest incarnation is Daisy Forex, launched in or around April 2022.

This current Daisy Forex iteration is what we’re reviewing today. [Continue reading…]
