Global Game Arena collapses, admins pull compliance exit-scam
The Global Game Arena Ponzi scheme has collapsed.
Rather than admit they’ve run out of money though, GGA’s admins are blaming affiliate investors.
As if blaming investors (most of whom are victims) wasn’t bad enough, GGA is hiding its collapse behind imaginary compliance.
BehindMLM reviewed Global Game Arena not even a fortnight ago.
Run by serial scammer Frode Jorgensen, we found GGA to be a typical MLM crypto Ponzi scheme.
Affiliates invested in GGA points, Global Game Arena increased the internal value of GGA and, so long as there was new investment money flowing in, affiliates could cash out.
In an announcement to its affiliate investors, GGA has stated the company is
not about buying 100 Positions in the system or by bonus buying products to qualify for higher commissions, rank and rewards.
Such behavior is not ok and is destroying the industry.
Under the guise of “clamping down” on its own business model, GGA has “locked up all funds in the system.
The company claims it’s a “victim”, to the tune of ‘16 million euros in Cash and 208,085,494 GGA Tokens.‘
Naturally Jorgensen and the gang don’t go into specifics.
As far as I can see, affiliates withdrew and GGA ran out of money. Now they’re pretending to be victims and are using withdrawals as an excuse to exit-scam.
We have to try to reset the system and try fresh as all problem areas has been identified and corrected, and we will not allow them to happen again.
Now it’s important that you read the information below to fully understand how we will be moving forward.
The play seems to be to reset investments, which will of course infuriate the current affiliate investor base.
Once the company has full control of the situation and have made the needed adjustments, GGA will partially release funds on a weekly basis from your locked balances.
This means that you will not have any available funds to make any new purchases until you either load your account or make some sales.
As above, whatever is left, be it real money or imaginary back office balances, will be held hostage until new investment is made.
Affiliates with more than one investment account have also been told funds attached to those accounts will be “disabled”.
While on the surface it might appear Global Game Arena will reboot at some point, this is simply a carrot on a stick approach.
Nobody is going to invest new money into a Ponzi scheme that has collapsed and is holding imaginary ROI balances hostage.
This gives Frode Jorgensen an out, as after a suitable time has passed, he’ll throw in the towel and blame affiliates for “not making sales”.
Thus the Global Game Arena “compliance” exit-scam will be complete.
Jorgensen makes off with the money he’s been able to steal, and everyone else loses out.
Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of Jorgensen’s past should have seen this coming a mile away.
Those that invested blindly? Sorry for your loss.
Over and over the MLM crypto scam plays out and over and over again people keep falling for it.
Update 1st September 2019 – Global Game Arena has relaunched with a slightly modified compensation plan and business model.
BehindMLM published an updated Global Game Arena review at the time of this update.
I need to hunt down Jorgensen, will try to make a bounty campaign to track him down.
I heard Daniel is already out as CMO of GGA. So they are really moving out one by one.
If you want to pursue bounty hunters and what not that’s your business. This is not the place for that.
Grenon’s resurfaced as a “Global Brand Ambassador at Futurenet 2.0”.
When somebody will take action to this norwegian Frode Jorgensen? He have stolen funds from members for 10 years now.
Concerning Grenon (from memory) who was arguably Canada’s largest Onecoin scam promoter:
Following the closure of Onecoin’s 20th and final bank of 2016, on or around November 30th of that year, in which Bank of Tanzania froze Onecoin accounts amounting to “€10,000,000’s” Daniel Grenon was amongst the Steinkeller brothers who were slated to appear at a Onecoin promotional Event in Daar es Saleem, Tanzania on December 17, 2016.
2 of the 3 Steinkellers (of Christian, Stephan and Aron) suspiciously pulled out at the last minute, citing the flu.
At the event, which was rumored to have a massive crowd, the two remaining Onecoin representatives, Daniel Grenon and Judicate Greatness (yeah, I know) were arrested and taken into custody by local police on suspicion of Ponzi/pyramid scheme.
Held overnight in a dirty jail cell with 3 dozen other inmates, Grenon used his one phone call to contact Christian Steinkeller, who promised that the company will pay any amount to get them released and to send their attorney on a red eye to be there first thing in the morning.
In Tanzania, as I recall, a conviction on pyramid related charges carries a minimum 3 year sentence.
Steinkellers Attorney showed up, and was able to get both Grenon and Greatness released after paying a small €10,000, allegedly.
Grenon would later state that he’d never been more afraid in his life and that in addition to police being there, 2 special agents from the World Bank were present, who told him that in addition to Bank of Tanzania funds being frozen, the World Bank had also locked up Onecoin deposits in the Bank of Singapore and that this was a global investigation and effort.
He (Grenon) stated that the agents had tried notifying Onecoin Corporate for explanation on the funds in multiple bank accounts on suspicion of moneylaundering, but that they could neither reach anyone at the company, nor did the company return calls or emails requesting interviews.
Ironically, the reason this was brought up in the first place and why local authorities had been tipped off was because on the flyer for the event Grenon and Greatness had the initials “IMA” under their names (“Independent Marketing Affiliate), however it had been reported that they were representing the red listed “IMS” – Frank Ricket’s banking affiliate “International Marketing Services,” who had just recently gone under criminal investigations by BaFIN in Germany for laundering hundreds of millions of Onecoin stolen money in that country.
Oh the webs these scammers weave!
