BankCryptoInv Review: 90% an hour crypto trading Ponzi

BankCryptoInv provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.

BankCryptoInv’s website domain (“bankcryptoinv.com”) was privately registered on January 24th, 2020.

Despite not existing until this year, BankCryptoInv fraudulently claims to be ‘a professional cryptocurrency investment company since 2017.’

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…]


Purple Mining Review: 7000% ROI crypto mining Ponzi

Purple Mining provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.

Purple Mining’s website domain (“purplemining.ltd”) was privately registered on September 29th, 2020.

In an attempt to appear legitimate, Purple Mining provides a UK incorporation certificate for “Purple Mining LTD” on its website.

UK incorporation is dirt cheap and effectively unregulated. It is a favored jurisdiction for scammers looking to incorporate dodgy companies.

For the purpose of performing MLM due-diligence, UK incorporation is meaningless.

At the time of publication Alexa ranks the top three sources of traffic to Purple Mining’s website as Venezuela (20%), Russia (10%) and Mexico (7%).

By no means conclusive, the broken English on Purple Mining’s website sounds a bit Russian to me:

Very nice.

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…]



Arieyl Review: Pay to play My Daily Choice CBD spin-off

Arieyl is in a bit of a weird place right now. The company is being actively promoted but as of yet doesn’t have a webpage.

“Arieyl.com” appears to be registered but is currently being redirected to the company’s official Facebook page.

Heading up Arieyl are co-CEOs Kristen and Travis Butler:

The Butlers are based out of Florida in the US, which is presumably from where Arieyl will be operated.

Prior to founding Arieyl Kristen and Travis Butler made a name for themselves in My Daily Choice.

In March 2016, BusinessForHome pegged the Butlers’ estimated monthly My Daily Choice income at $537,000 a month.

In mid 2018 the Butler’s boasted they and their downline held ’36 of the top 125 spots in our company.’

On or around February 2019, the Butler’s had a My Daily Choice downline of ‘13,000 and (an) average 30-40 enrollments per month’.

I found one of their downline boasting on Facebook about how the Butlers had made over four million dollars in My Daily Choice, as at October 2019.

In an Arieyl announcement video, Travis Butler discloses he and his wife made seven million dollars in MDC “in three years”.

The Butlers continued to promote MDC until around the end of the first quarter of 2020. I have been unable to find out why they left.

Promotion for Arieyl began earlier this month.

As it stands Arieyl is officially in pre-launch. A reader wrote in requesting a review and, seeing as Arieyl’s compensation plan has been made public, I figured I had enough to publish a review.

Kevlar Gifting Communities Review: Infinity circle algorithm?

When I checked for Kevlar Gifting Communities’ website yesterday, I found a functioning website.

Today the domain is timing out. It seems Kevlar Gifting Communities is either having technical difficulties, or someone pulled the website over the last 24 hours.

In any event our source material for this review is a Kevlar Gifting Communities marketing video, hosted by Ben Quigley and uploaded to YouTube on November 17th, 2020.

On his LinkedIn profile, Quigley cites himself as a co-founder of Kevlar Gifting Communities.

Quigley markets himself as a “social media marketing coach”. In addition to hisĀ  to his association with Kevlar Gifting Communities, Quigley is/was a NewULife and B-Epic distributor.

Quigley stopped uploading B-Epic videos to his YouTube channel three months ago.

Kevlar Gifting Communities launched on September 3rd, 2020. The other Kevlar Gifting Communities co-founders are not disclosed.

SureGlobalTradeFX Review: Master Cloud Miner reboot Ponzi

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

The only information provides is that supposedly SureGlobalTradeFX’s ‘founders are from Sweden, India, Ukraine, and China.’

In an attempt to appear legitimate, SureGlobalTradeFX provides a US address on its website. This address actually belongs to an Asian grocery store.

SureGlobalTradeFX’s website domain (“sureglobaltradefx.com”) was privately registered on July 9th, 2020.

Despite not existing up until a few months ago, on its website SureGlobalTradeFX falsely claims to have been formed in 2016.

Whoever put together SureGlobalTradeFX’s website appears to have cloned Master Cloud Miner:

Master Cloud Miner was a crypto mining Ponzi launched in early 2019. Based on Alexa traffic charts, Master Cloud Miner appears to have collapsed by December 2019.

There is a brief spike of traffic to Master Cloud Miner’s website domain, just prior to the registration of SureGlobalTradeFX’s website domain.

It’s highly likely that whoever ran the Master Cloud Miner Ponzi scheme is also behind SureGlobalTradeFX.

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…]

What happened to Visalus? (explained)

Late last year we reported on Visalus appearing to be sold off to Pruvit.

The transaction was strange, absent not even a simple press-release to announce the transaction.

Following a tip-off from a reader, BehindMLM has learned a whopping $925 million judgment was likely behind Visalus’ downfall. [Continue reading…]
