Cup Trust Review: 12% daily ROI over 12 days
There is no information on the Cup Trust website about who runs or owns the company.
The domain ‘cuptrust.com’ was registered on the 27th March 2012, however the registration information is set to private.
As always, if a 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.
The Cup Trust Product Line
Cup Trust’s members are only able to market membership to Cup Trust itself. The company sells advertising at a retail level, however this option is not available to members.
With each investment a Cup Trust member makes the company includes advertising credits. These advertising credits can then be used to purchase advertising on an in-house advertising network that features on the Cup Trust website.
The Cup Trust Compensation Plan
Upon joining the company, Cup Trust guarantee members a 12% ROI on investments made with the company over a 12 day period.
Investments are made in $12 allotments and 30% of returns must be re-invested back into the company.
In addition to investment ROIs, Cup Trust also offer members recruitment commissions on any investments made.
When you recruit someone into Cup Trust, they form your level 1 and you earn 10% on any investments they make. If your level 1 members recruit a new members they become your level 2 and you earn 2% on any investments they make.
Joining Cup Trust
Membership to Cup Trust is free, however investments must be made with the company in order to earn commissions.
Members who do not invest can earn referral commissions (by convincing members they recruit to invest), however they themselves need to invest these commissions if they wish to cash out.
Given that the only visitors to the Cup Trust website are those interest in the income opportunity, the value of retail advertising on the site is non-existent. Thus it’s a given that the main revenue source for the company comes from members.
Given that members earn a return on their supposed ‘advertising purchases’, they are in effect investments rather than purchases.
This is confirmed by a statistics box featured on the right hand side of the Cup Trust website (the image on the right). This box makes no mention of sales but rather only lists investments made by members of the company.
In addition to this, Cup Trust’s refund policy states:
You are purchasing the text and banner advertising. The program is in addition to the advertising.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS.
If advertising credits were infact being purchased, should members not use them they’d be entitled to a refund. Of course this can’t happen because Cup Trust use the money they get from members to pay off existing returns owed on investments.
Or in other words, Cup Trust is yet another Ponzi scheme that will collapse once the new investments dry up.
