GetEasy under police investigation in Portugal
Is this the end for one of the more prolific TelexFree reload scams?
Thanks to a diligent BehindMLM reader, news broke yesterday of an upcoming TV expose into GetEasy.
Scheduled to air on the Portuguese show “Friday at 9” (Sexta às 9), the initial promo didn’t reveal much:
Reporting on the upcoming Friday at 9 broadcast, RTP (the channel Friday at 9 is broadcast on) then broke the news that Portuguese police had opened up a criminal investigation into the company:
PJ stands for “Polícia Judiciária” and is the primary law enforcement agency for criminal investigations.
The text in the blue box reads “PJ is investigating the business and responsible Geteasy” (auto-translate).
Friday at 9 later confirmed the investigation on their Facebook page:
At this stage there has been no official announcement from Portuguese police regarding the investigation. Nor is it clear whether there will be one, as regulators usually do not comment on ongoing investigations.
We’ll have more after the Friday at 9 broadcast takes place (9pm Friday the 24th, UTC +00:00).

Thanks for that. Anyone want to translate the juicy bits?
maybe here with translate do youtube
Basically it was told on national TV that Geateasy is under investigating for scamming, that their partnerships are all lies, and they made the parallel wit Telexfree. Eventually people will lose their money, and that Portugal is a safe haven for crooks
Nice article, but…
Well, it is not demonstrated that GetEasy is a scam, it is just told that the company is under investigation.. And so..?
I have done lot of research regarding GetEasy and yes it is under investigation as it has been asked from some institutions and other companies, so even if the company is 100% clean there is an investigation.. It was under investigation for months now and nothing has come out yet, they can’t find anything from now on..
Also Geteasy has been aprooved by the europeen commission, would they aproove a scam ?
Geteasy is also now part of the Lloyds and IFC ( international finance corporation )
Thus, a lot of big names in the multi level marketing has been placed under investigation but are 100% legal and make a salary for thousands of people.. Organo, acn, herbalife, lyoness ect ect..
This kind of business is not enought known and the big corporate does not like it..
It is just my opinion.. The system is changing we’ve got to think different and work different..
Of course it is, GetEasy’s business model is more than obvious. Any regulatory investigation is just making it formal.
And if you can’t see the Ponzi for the forest, either you’ve invested and are intentionally ignoring it or you’re terrible at research.
Ponzi schemes aren’t legal. What happens to other MLM companies is irrelevant.
Oh Ponzi schemes are well-known. This all might be new to you but mark my words GetEasy isn’t anything we haven’t seen before.
as an investor who’s hoping against hope pie in the sky ROIs are legit, that much is obvious.
Obviously this Tonyyy guy is an “investor” and wants to get his ROIs so ofcourse is lying with all his teeth about Geteasy being a legit business…it’s what scammers do to convince people to give them their hard working money!
And I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy is portuguese…unfortunately we’re full of these MDFs!
Congratulations for your job and your site. I like reading all news about new MLM.
I live in Belgium and I want to be specialized in this kind of business. We have some people who works with MLM but the fiscality in our country has a complex level to tax this kind of revenues.
I’m a fiscal layer and I see the program of RTP but for the moment, there are no demonstration with right clues that this company used a ponzy scheme. I think there are many scams in Portugal, why ???
Because your countrymen (and women) still think it’s possible to get rich by doing little… if someone will just show them how.
following the big profits, it is normal that police investigate the society. you will see, geteasy will continue their activities.
K.CHANG ==> GET EASY will not make you rich , except you have a big team, but it is more interesting that propose the bank, who them, are the true scammers.
yes, get easy is strange in juridical details, but we don’t care, it is work, and following the economists, politician and business men :
“this is by choosing a different take than the one other that way you will reach your goals”
Try looking at the GetEasy business model. Selling infinite customers with fixed ROIs makes no sense. It’s just recycled affiliate funds.
First and last warning. Do not post under different usernames.
This seems to be a common theme among the Portuguese MLM community.
“Take our money and scam us, we don’t care!”
The whole industry there sounds pretty fucked up at the moment.
It was ALWAYS fucked up! The difference now is that nor the government nor the various industries are able to get more loans so shit is coming afloat now…
Can somebody tell us what they are saying in this new program? Its about the Geteasy investigation by Sexta as 9.
^^ See comment #4.
The link I just post is a new chapter, it came out october 30th.
Looked the same to me (I only watched the first few seconds).
Not sure what the latest was then if there was a new show covering GetEasy.
Strange that we haven’t heard anything about it?
Many people in Kampala, Uganda are excited about geteasy and are joining in large numbers.
The trainings include motivation talks about how important it is to “work hard” and not listen to “negative people”.whatsapp chat groups have been started and anyone who asks a question is promptly removed.Many of them lost money in telexfree(myself included)and are now trying to make it back(makes no sense, i know).
i hope they will read this and know that every time you recruit anyone, you are robbing them and that’s how you get paid from new affiliates money. there is no other product..not enough to support those huge pay outs anyway.
its not hard work..it is laziness and fraud. somebody down the line will lose their hard earned or borrowed money when you get paid, .
You probably know this and dont care.
My post is to stop any one else from joining. Dont be sheep…. stop and think about it .Dont wait to learn the hard way.
i realize a statement above might have been confusing.To be clear i was in telexfree and lost money and learnt my lesson. i am not joining get easy.
rwanda and kenya also have many geteasy affiliates.
Geteasy announced their “partneship?” with IFC Limited, during Banco de Portugal regulator orders.
Warning by International Finance Corporation – about Fraud/Corruption: E-mails and/or Checks which falsely suggest some affiliation or relationship between IFC and the following entities: GetEasy Group, TachoEasy Iberica, International Finance Corporation Ltd and International Finance Bank Ltd/Banque Financière Internationale Ltd. –
Don’t understand why some people try to defend this scheme, taking those the bill as well. It is reported as a copy of the Telexfree modus operandis.
Despite my research on phisical location where the GPS (according to number of members) they must have a huge place to store all this equipments and logistics. Of course, nothing more than small empty offices.
I am just asking myself where justice will put a end to this crap.
Re. IFC, didn’t GetEasy create their own offshore shell company (to launder money through) with the same name “IFC”?
I vaguely recall mustache man explaining that away in one of his videos.
Obviously the intent was to trade on the actual IFC’s good name, but that seems to have backfired now.
If someone tells me the name of the companies that use GetEasy prouducts, it all makes sense, and business can be approved.
Otherwise I see it just as another ponzi scheme. Thank you.
That one’s easy…
Mr. and Mrs Ponzi Investor INC.
I confess, yes, I have actually been cheated by scam Geteasy 360 euros since July 2014.
For health issue, I will not begin to spread all the research and evidence that I did and that I had and I’m not writing this message to convince anyone. It is only to avoid if possible there are other victims.
For those who want to do research or assisting financial investigators, here are the five names at the top of this pyramid, ponzi manufactured in Brazil at the beginning …
1- Luiz Ribeiro francisco pinto
2- Dr. Michael Herzog
3- Tiago Fontoura
4- Pedro Mira Godinho
5- Edgar Fontoura
