PGI Global completes exit-scam, website offline
After failing to initiate an exit-scam through Nui’s Kala shitcoin, Praetorian Group International has pulled its website offline.
PGI Global’s website was pulled roughly 48 hours ago. I held off reporting the collapse in case it was just a technical error.
PGI Global’s collapse has seen the company censor comments on its official Facebook page.
The company’s last post is dated June 27th, detailing a broadcast related to PGI Global’s shell company in Estonia.
As per BehindMLM’s PGI Global review, the Ponzi scheme is run by Ramil Ventura Palafox (aka RV Palafox).
Originally from the Philippines, Palafox is believed to have obtained US citizenship.
A November 2016 report, covering an immigration bust, details the arrest of “Ramil Palafox” in the Philippines.
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) recently apprehended an American citizen who allegedly acted as a courier of a human trafficking syndicate and tried to smuggle six Filipinas out of the country.
In a statement issued yesterday, Commissioner Jaime Morente said Ramil Palafox and the Filipinas were intercepted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2 on Nov. 18 just as they were about to board a Philippine Airlines flight to Hong Kong.
During questioning, the six women, whose names the BI did not disclose, told the bureau that their actual destination was Dubai, where they would have worked as domestic helpers.
A report from the BI’s travel control and enforcement unit said the passengers claimed that Palafox was in possession of their United Arab Emirates visas.
He later reportedly took out the visas from his hand-carried bag after initially denying that he had them.
As I understand it Palafox fled to Dubai earlier this year.
Due to its lack of regulation and extradition treaties, over the past two years Dubai has emerged as the MLM scam capital of the world.
Palafox’s partner in crime, Australian based Mark Davis (right), abandoned his social media accounts in October 2020. Davis’ personal website has also been pulled offline.

The majority of PGI Global victims are believed to be from the US. Alexa currently pegs the US as the largest source of traffic to PGI Global’s website at 47.9%.
Update 30th June 2021 – Seemingly in response to this article, PGI Global has posted an update on their official Facebook page:
On 28 June 2021, we have encountered a problem with our domain name, it was suspended, which was not in our control.
We are coordinating with the body who is in charge of this, although this may take time.
We shall announce as soon as possible when the domain name will be available for us to use. We ask once again for your patience.
PGI Global is NOT closing down.
We are still working on many updates for our Backoffice functionalities for when the site is available again.
Once again, we thank you and wish to reassure you that we are committed to finishing the withdrawal requests.
PGI Global restricted comments on their official Facebook page earlier today so affiliate’s aren’t able to publicly respond.
Perusal of PGI Global’s website domain record reveals the registration was last updated on June 28th.
The current name-servers set for the domain are “ns1.suspended-domain.com” and ns2.suspended-domain.com”.
Those domains belong to The Endurance International Group, who own a large number of domain registration and web hosting companies.
PGI Global’s domain was paid up till August 22nd, so we know the suspension isn’t billing related.
PGI Global themselves aren’t revealing the suspension reason, despite having known about it for almost three days.
We’ll keep you posted of any updates.
Update 1st August 2021 – RV Palafox has resurfaced to announce a PGI Global reboot.
Palafox appears to be on the run from US authorities. As such he won’t be heading up the PGI Global reboot personally.
Update 5th September 2021 – PGI Global has rebooted with top earner Helen Graham running the company as CEO.
They are claiming “Domain suspension” and they are “working to resolve” Lol.
Seems it has been suspended, not able to ascertain why though, it’s not in it’s expiry, might be unverified contact details.
Mark Davis sent this out to all PGI Platinum members on 22nd June:
However, no one received a penny. No idea why he would send such a message. Maybe he was screwed too?
Plot thickens. Not a billing error, so why was the domain suspended…
What a problem scam.
Claiming trademark dispute.
The information being shared here that the site was shut down as part of an exit scam is totally false.
The site was shut down by the Non profit IACC over name infringements with another company who had already filed with the SEC under a similar name in 2018.
This site needs to do their due diligence and not spread mis-information and frankly should be held liable for putting this out there!
You can defraud and go with our had earned money but no peace for the wicked.
Ramil Ventura Palafox – PGI founder/CEO and all your executives that ran with our money you will not have peace and God Almighty will visit you with vengeance.
Every of your meeting you lie and continue to lie. But may I let you know that God is watching, you might run away from us but God knows you and will reward you with your wickedness.
Still feels like an exit-scam. The not withdrawals since March seals the deal for me. Throw in the failed KALA exit-scam, censoring social media etc.
There are a number of companies using the name “Praetorian” across the world. The word itself hearkens back to Roman times.
If you narrow it to “Praetorian Group” there’s “The Praetorian Group”, the company behind the PAX cryptocurrency who claim to have been around since 2010.
Then there’s “Praetorian Group” who deal in franchises. On their website they claim to have been around since 2014.
There’s a “Praetorian Group” in Texas (also just go by “Praetorian”). A cyber security company that’s been around since 2010.
I wasn’t able to find a “Praetorian Group” or derivative that launched in 2018.
All of these “Praetorian Group” companies have existed together for almost a decade without issue. Praetorian Group the Ponzi scheme has been around for just over a year.
And now, after four months of non-payment, Praetorian Group is pushing the narrative that someone objected to their use of the name?
Not buying it unless hard proof is provided. Facebook updates are interesting from an academic perspective but aren’t proof of anything.
One could just as easily file a bogus complaint with ICANN as part of an elaborate exit-scam strategy.
Yeah but in the meantime, hookers and blow.
Sorry for your loss.
Also my view, good for keeping tabs of lies for future reference though.
Have you ever been able to physically taste desperation? I just did reading this.
Also this is bullshit.
1. The only “The Praetorian Group” registered with the SEC is the PAX crypto company. They did indeed register a securities offering with the SEC in 2018.
The company itself however has been around since 2010.
2. Registering a securities offering with the SEC isn’t a trademark filing. The Securities and Exchange Act has no provisions for “similar names”.
You might get into hot water if you try to impersonate a registered company. That isn’t the case here as Praetorian Group the Ponzi scheme isn’t registered with the SEC.
3. ICANN has nothing to do with the SEC or Securities and Exchange Act.
4. Praetorian Group the Ponzi scheme wasn’t trying to pass itself off as a clone of The Praetorian Group, creators of PAX. So with respect to ICANN, there’s no question of impersonation.
Nobody is above the law. this Idiot will not go unpunished. He can run but he can’t hide. He is a scammer and he must be brought to justice.
He can’t run away from God .He owns me and he must pay me my hard earned money. Bless his soul.
A lot of invoking of God going on here.
You’d think that with a pandemic, wild fires, floods and all the other major stuff going on, that the Old Boy would have his hands full without being too concerned about some two bit Ponzi.
So, whose God will win? Scott Grimm and his Online Ministry or Mr. Obioha and his completely innocent fellow victims?
Pass the popcorn.
Does anybody know if The PGI President of UK, Helen is still with PGI. Who among the leaders quit already?
Helen Graham and Shofi Ullah have set up a separate company along with Claire Wilkinson, and are no longer on the Companies House registration for PGI Global.
There’s no way that this can be a resignation from PGI itself though, more likely another company to funnel funds through if PGI gets their assets frozen.
I’d take anything on Companies House with a grain of salt. Nothing on there is regulated in the slightest.
RV PALAFOX started all his lies in this year 2021, he never paid investors since 6 months.
my downline who register since December has never gotten a cent 4rm this company PGI.
RV put tears on people life,they destroy home bcuz of him, people got a police problem bcuz of him, people who borrow money bcuz him they’re all in problem today.
other companies they’re paying successful in transactions of crypto bitcoin to their wallet, we don’t really understand why he refuses to pay people after 5 months now.
over 1 week site has been shut down.. I’ll never 4give that man RV PALAFOX for the lost, n I don’t want him to go free is either he pays all the 130 investors all over the world or go to jail forever in life my family now see me as a scam bcuz of this wicked man.
he’s holding trillions of dollars people money he keeps saying they money is here but still he can’t pay people this man is too wicked.
Because PGI Global was a Ponzi scheme and your money is gone.
Also scams,stop trying to make money in scams and you won’t lose yours
The people has made my life miserable for more than 5 months. The are scammers. We want our money back. My friends and I are very sad with all this.
A lot of reviews popping up suggesting people contact third parties to recover their money. Pro tip: Those are also scams.
PIG global is done. This whole thing stunk from the start but the promise of easy money and a soft spoken “CEO” was too much for some. A simple google search would have revealed the human trafficking etc.
New term entering the MLM lexicon: “Palafucked”.
In a Ponzi scheme your money isn’t sitting in some pot waiting to be collected. It’s stolen the moment you invest.
Unless authorities step in, there is no recovery. And even if authorities do step in, outside of the US recovery prospects are slim.
PGI is back online live praetorsglobal.com
Haters please eat your words.
Lol. They put 2020 on the website footer but the domain was only registered on July 16th, 2021.
And of course it’s just a signin form to steal credentials. Reload scammers out in force.
PGI collapsed. Your money is gone. Sorry for your loss.
Might well be attepting a reboot:
From the main FB: fb.watch/75XuptRwEQ/
And a secondary FB,pretty old page and does mention the 3 websites thing and a few other interesting bits (if accurate)
Sounds like “on the run from US regulators” to me.
Philippines SEC is pretty active, wonder if they’ll take notice. Also Palafox has US citizenship unless I’m mistaken.
Might well be presenting some useless pages to US and Philippines,the VPN mention(for security obviously) also seemed pretty prominent
Palafox is a dual Philippines/US Citizen I believe. Gonna take an act of God to get him out of the UAE (cough allegedly) though.
