Digital Income System Review: $25,000 traffic rotator pyramid scheme

Digital Income System provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.

As I write this, the Digital Income System website is nothing more than an affiliate login page.

If you visit through a Digital Income System affiliate referral link, you’re presented with recruitment marketing.

The Digital Income System website domain (“”) was first registered in April 2018.

The private registration was last updated on December 6th, 2018.

In my research into Digital Income System I came across affiliates naming Derek Jones and Bill Foley as owners of the company, but I wasn’t able to conclusively verify this.

The closest I got was inconclusive social media profile mentions and this Florida incorporation for Digital Income System Inc.

Either that’s a typo or Derek Jones’ real name is Derek Foley (???).

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…]

BitFund4U Review: Eight-tier 0.005 BTC gifting scheme

The BitFund4U website domain (“”) was registered on March 20th, 2019.

ArbiStar Review: Trading bot Ponzi scheme run by serial scammer

ArbiStar operate in the cryptocurrency MLM niche. The company is headed up by CEO Santi Fuentes, who is based out of Spain.

In his ArbiStar corporate bio, Fuentes claims to be

one of the most experienced people in the world of Referral Marketing.

He has led teams of thousands of people with great success.

Fuentes (right) first popped up on BehindMLM’s radar in 2014, as a top investor in Global Unity.

Global Unity was a scam tied to the WCM777 Ponzi scheme.

In 2015 Fuentes emerged as a top investor in MoneyBox TV, another Ponzi scheme.

Fuentes’ Arbistar corporate bio addresses his involvement in fraudulent investment schemes;

He has also known as team leader the failure of some projects where companies were not transparent and cheated their sales teams.

For this reason he is the ideal person to lead Arbistar 2.0.

Prior to getting involved in Ponzi schemes, Fuentes was an Organo Gold distributor.

A marketing video circa 2013 cites Fuentes as an Organo Gold Ruby.

Of note is the current iteration of ArbiStar appears to be a reboot. This is denoted by the “2.0” added to the company logo.

It seems the first ArbiStar model collapsed, although I wasn’t able to find specific details.

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

AWS Mining Ponzi collapses, promises AWS Capital reboot in Dubai

Rather than admit they’ve run out of money to pay off existing investors, AWS Mining came up with an elaborate fire damage story.

It is with regret that AWS MINING informs that a fire has destroyed one of our Crypto Mining Farms in Paraguay.

Although the reason behind this devastating fire remains unknown, it is certain that there will be heavy economic losses for the company.

According to the statement issued by the farm manager in Ciudad del Este, the fire took place on Friday, March 29th, between 2pm – 4pm, and destroyed thousands of machines and servers causing an estimated total loss of nearly $5 million dollars.

As a consequence of the fire AWS Mining running out of money, the company has not paid investors for weeks.

The latest has seen AWS Mining give up on paying investors back. Instead the company wants to wipe the ROI slate clean and reboot as AWS Capital. [Continue reading…]

Copy Profit Success Global rebooted as FX Signal Education Plus?

Copy Profit Success Global popped up on our radar about a year ago.

After about a month of obnoxious “we’re gonna take over forex” marketing, Copy Profit Success Global launched… and then flopped. Hard.

A libel and slander lawsuit filed by iMarketsLive is also believed to have contributed to CPS Global’s quick demise.

Today Copy Profit Success Global is no more. Its founders, Joel Santiago and Joe Otis, have abandoned most of their social media profiles.

A YouTube channel Santiago still low-key uploads to though, suggests CPS Global has rebooted as FX Signal Education Plus. [Continue reading…]

EssenceFX Review: Shady “unit investment” trading scheme

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

In the footer section of its website, EssenceFX represents it is incorporated in Vanuatu.

Vanuatu has emerged as a scam friendly jurisdiction, particularly within the MLM finance niche.

Unless it is based out of Vanuatu, there is no legitimate reason for an MLM company to incorporate itself there.

As opposed to Vanuatu, it is far more likely that whoever is running the company is based out of Malaysia.

At the time of publication Alexa estimates that 98% of traffic to the EssenceFX website originates out of Malaysia.

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…]
