So I have to show you a GDPR cookie-nag notice…

Back whenever the GDPR came into effect, May or June I think it was, I figured I could get by with just an update to our Privacy Policy.

Turns out that’s not the case, and now I have Google nagging me to do more.

As of today you’re going to get one of those annoying GDPR cookie spam notices when you access BehindMLM. [Continue reading…]


Qdynamics Global Corporation Review: Cancer curing minerals

Qdynamics Global Corporation operates in the health and wellness MLM niche.

The company launched in 2008 and is based out of the Philippines.

Heading up Qdynamics Global Corporation is founder and CEO, Delia C. Maceda (right).

As per Maceda’s Qdynamics Global Corporation corporate bio, she’s an obstetrician-gynecologist.

Dr. Maceda, fondly called “Doc Del”, is an acclaimed member of the Filipino Inventors Society.

She had undergone extensive training in Nutritional and Environmental Medicine here and abroad.

On their website Qdynamics Global Corporation claims to have ‘countless clients in Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Papua New Guinea, London, Dubai, Australia, Canada, Israel, India, Germany and Italy‘.

Alexa traffic estimates for the Qdynamics Global Corporation website however cite the Philippines as providing 100% of traffic.

This suggests that Qdynamics Global Corporation has little to no operations outside of the Philippines itself.

Jeunesse RICO settlement challenged

Back in August it was announced Jeunesse had settled a lawsuit alleging RICO violations for $2.5 million.

Through an amicus curiae brief filed on December 7th, Truth in Advertising (TINA) has opposed the settlement.

According to the consumer advocacy organization, Jeunesse’s settlement ‘provides no meaningful benefit to‘ victims and permits ‘Jeunesse to continue unfettered with the fraudulent scheme that forms the basis of this case‘. [Continue reading…]


Melius Review: $50,000 passive forex trading account for $3000?

Melius operates in the forex and cryptocurrency MLM niches.

The company provides corporate addresses in Dubai and the UK on their website.

The UK address is a virtual office, I wasn’t able to verify the provided Dubai address.

Somewhat curiously, early Melius marketing material claimed the company had a third office in the US state of Nevada:

Melius has since removed any reference to their Nevada corporation and office from their website and marketing material.

Speaking of Melius’ website, on it the company identifies Jeremy Prasetyo as CEO and co-founder of the company.

Melius’ other co-founders are not disclosed.

As far as I can tell, Melius is Prasetyo’s first MLM venture as an executive.

Prasetyo’s social media profiles suggest he has spent much of the past year speaking at and promoting various cryptocurrency events (non-MLM).

Uforia Science Review: Foru International bought out, rebooted

Uforia Science operates in the nutritional supplement MLM niche and operates out of Utah in the US.

Unfortunately Uforia Science provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

Further research reveals Uforia Science marketing material naming Ron Williams (right) as founder and CEO of the company.

Why this information is not provided on the Uforia Science website is unclear.

According to a Harcourt Health article published in September 2018, Uforia Science is owned by Terry Lacore.

This is a game changer, and Williams knows that. He has partnered with Terry Lacore of the Lacore Enterprises fame.

Williams successfully ran Forever Green and Lacore successfully runs Lacorre Enterprises.

Both men are used to the multi-million dollar health and nutritional space.

In fact, they met during a law suit. Lacorre [sic] was suing Forever Green over the formula for a keto drink.

Williams won, but in the end, Williams also won over Terry.

The CEOs decided they really liked each other, so Terry offered Ron the chance to head up the Üforia line, and Ron jumped at it.

I believe the lawsuit referenced is that of Pruvit vs. ForeverGreen.

BehindMLM reviewed ForeverGreen in 2013. Based on the company’s compensation plan, we found ForeverGreen was heavily focused on affiliate autoship recruitment.

Ron Williams resigned as ForeverGreen’s CEO and President in April 2017. Williams remains tied to the company however as a standing member of ForeverGreen’s Board of Directors.

OneCoin scam warning issued in New Zealand

New Zealand’s Financial Markets Authority is claiming OneCoin has “the characteristics of a scam”.

The FMA issued a consumer warning against OneCoin following information received regarding [Continue reading…]


OneCoin tells Norway it has no information on local affiliates

One of the recurring themes in OneCoin circles is a lack of transparency.

What’s left of the company rarely communicates with what’s left of its affiliate investor-base. And when announcements are made, they inevitably lead to more questions, most of which go unanswered.

The good news is it’s not just affiliate investors being kept in the dark. Regulators asking OneCoin for information are being denied too. [Continue reading…]

The motion was granted, staying Whitney’s response in favor of a joint notice or motion detailing a proposed course of action. [Continue reading…]


Trio Trader Review: Automated signals cryptocurrency trading returns

Trio Trader began as Qube Trade in late August. The initial launch flopped and was rebooted as Trio Trader sometime in November.

As far as I can tell there’s no difference between Qube Trade and Trio Trader other than the company name.

Trio Trader provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Trio Trader website domain (“triotrader.com”) was registered on October 29th, 2018.

Amir Dauti of Dauti Tech is listed as the owner, through an address in Ontario, Canada.

This corresponds with the Trio Trader user agreement, which states;

Trio Trader is provided by Trio Software Inc. of Canada, Ontario, and its suppliers.

In addition to Trio Trader, Amir Dauti runs TrioSoft. On their website TrioSoft advertises “eTrader System”, which is marketed as a “cryptocurrency auto trader”.

Joseph McDermott (CVO), Scott Phoundpadith (CEO) and Amir Dauti (CTO) are listed as co-founders on the TrioSoft website.

Presumably all three are behind Qube Trade and Trio Trader too.

Whereas Amir Dauti appears to be in a technical role, McDermott and Phounpadith have verifiable MLM backgrounds.

Joseph McDermott supposedly began his MLM career back in 2000, after dropping out of highschool.

MLM companies McDermott has promoted include iLearning Global (ILG), Visalus, Jeunesse (2014-) and Asirvia (2017).

In late 2017 McDermott appeared on stage at an iPro Network event.

iPro Network is/was a typical MLM pump and dump altcoin scheme. Alexa traffic estimates for the iPro Network website suggest it collapsed mid 2018.

Like many in the MLM industry, McDermott has rebranded himself as a cryptocurrency expert of late.

Scott Phounpadith appeared on BehindMLM earlier this year as the owner of World Cryptocurrency 101.

Interest in World Cryptocurrency 101 appears to have declined shortly after launch.

Noteably the Trio Trader website looks and feels like that of World Cryptocurrency 101.

In the source-code of the World Cryptocurrency 101 website, Trio Software is credited as the author:

This suggests Trio Trader is using recycled World Cryptocurrency 101 assets.
