Unity Line Builders Review: Crypto 2×1 matrix cycler Ponzi

Unity Line Builders provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.

Unity Line Builders’ website domain (“unitylinebuilders.com”) was privately registered on January 28th, 2020.

Further research reveals Johnny Ganoza promoting Unity Line Builders on Facebook:

Ganoza (aka Johnny Gan) has appeared on BehindMLM in connection with a number of schemes over the years.

These include Xtreme Pro System (2014), Average Joe Profit System (2015),  PowerPost Profits (2015), The PLR System (2015), The $100 System (2016), Post 2 Profits (2017), Hustle With Us (2017), BitPayProfits (2017), Infinity Loops (2018) and Paytron BTC (2019).

Ganoza’s schemes all have fraudulent business models and tend to collapse shortly after launch.

Pipz Review: TelexFree’s Carlos Costa fronts ecom platform

Pipz provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the business.

Pipz website domain (“pipz.com.br”) was registered back in 2015. The current owner of the domain is Carlos Roberto Costa.

Yes, that’s notorious scammer Carlos Costa of TelexFree Ponzi fame.

While he doesn’t feature on Pipz website, Costa does host Pipz marketing videos on their Facebook page:

This is in line with Costa’s role as the face of TelexFree in Brazil.

Despite multiple regulatory investigations and evidence US regulators were closing in, Costa continued to pump out “TelexFree isn’t a scam” themed videos on YouTube.

As I understand it Costa is facing regulatory action over TelexFree’s Brazilian operations (Ympactus), however this is a long drawn out process.

I’d be remiss not to mention Costa’s failed Federal Deputy election bid.

Yes, Costa actually tried to enter Brazilian politics after TelexFree was shut down.

Costa was convicted of tax fraud last year, although his almost four year sentence was reduced to community service.

Costa’s latest brush in with the law was last December, wherein he was arrested for TelexFree related money laundering.

Whether the case stuck or not is unclear as Costa was released a few days later.

The status of the multiple pending criminal cases against Costa in Brazil is unclear.
