Hedgefinity Review: Bitcoin matrix cycler Ponzi

Hedgefinity provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.

The Hedgefinity website domain (“hedgefinity.com”) was privately registered on July 20th, 2018.

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…]


Plus Token Wallet Review: Mobile crypto wallet Ponzi scheme

The Plus Token Wallet website identifies a co-founder of the company as “Mr. Leo”.

Other than a small grainy photo of someone wearing a baseball cap standing behind a podium, no information about Leo is provided.

The Plus Token Wallet website domain was privately registered on September 19th, 2018.

Plus Token Wallet appears to be primarily promoted across Asia.

The Plus Token Wallet website provides a graphical roadmap in Chinese and showcases a recent event in Japan.

There’s also reference to a “grand opening” in South Korea last month.

Offered languages on the Plus Token Wallet website include English, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Indonesian, Vietnamese, German and Japanese.

The “latest news” section of the website boasts of “two China guys reach million monthly income club”.

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…]

MyNyloxin’s cobra venom pain relief… maybe didn’t contain venom

So the saying goes; the wheels of justice turn slowly.

Honestly, sometimes in the MLM world it feels like they don’t move at all.

Back in 2014 BehindMLM published our MyNyloxin review.

MyNyloxin served as the official network marketing arm for Nutra Pharma.

Steve Gewecke headed up the company, which combined cobra venom pain relief with a “media unit” investment opportunity.

While Nutra Pharma was registered with the SEC at the time, the company failed to declare MyNyloxin’s media unit’s.

By January 2015 MyNyloxin had collapsed. A reboot company Lumaxa was launched but didn’t last long.

Nutra Pharma itself “never turned a profit” and as of December 2016, was losing around $3.5 million annually.

Now, almost four and a half years since our MyNyloxin review, the SEC has filed a lawsuit against Nutra Pharma Corporation. [Continue reading…]


Bitqyck affiliate database sold to Tierra Science Global?

Bitqyck was a typical MLM cryptocurrency altcoin securities offering.

Rather than operate legally, Bitqyck planned to flout US securities law by operating offshore through Firstmover International.

In June Bitqyck revealed it was the subject of a federal regulatory investigation.

Firstmover International’s website has since been pulled and presumably the company has been abandoned.

Now it appears the Bitqyck affiliate investor database may have been sold to Tierra Science Global. [Continue reading…]

22USD Club Review: $1 a pop pyramid scheme

The 22USD Club website domain (“22usd.club”) was privately registered on May 9th, 2018.

Banners App Review: FutureNet Ponzi wants access to your phone

Banners App provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The Banners App website domain (“bannersapp.com”) was registered on July 3rd, 2018.

Rafal Szymanski is listed as the owner, through an address in Lviv, Ukraine.

On Facebook Szymanski (right) credits himself as co-founder and CEO of Banners App.

He is also heavily involved in the FutureNet, serving as “Chairman of the foundation council at FutureNet Foundation”.

FutureNet launched four years ago as a six-tier matrix Ponzi cycler.

In 2016 the company launched FutureAdPro, an adcredit Ponzi scheme.

In line with what much of the MLM underbelly was doing, in early 2017 news of a FutureNet altcoin surfaced.

Up until June 2018, FuturoCoin operated as internally traded Ponzi points within FutureNet.

Public trading began on or around June 8th at around $14.

Last month FutureAdPro collapsed, prompting FutureNet to only pay ROIs in pre-generated FuturoCoin.

The FutureAdPro FuturoCoin exit-scam has pumped the value of FuturoCoin from just under $6 to its current value of $12.

Banners App appears to have been launched in the wake of FutureAdPro’s collapse.

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