AdBrook Review: $15 Ponzi ROIs with pay to play
There is no information indicating who owns or runs the business on the AdBrook website.
The company does claim to be a “fully registered company on Belize”, however no further specific information is provided.
The AdBrook website domain meanwhile was privately registered on the 18th of March, 2015.
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.
The AdBrook Product Line
AdBrook has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership with the company itself.
Through the AdBrook compensation plan, affiliates are then able to invest funds with the company.
Bundled with each investment are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the AdBrook website itself.
The AdBrook Compensation Plan
The AdBrook compensation plan sees affiliates invest up to $10,000 a pop, on the promise of an advertised 150% ROI.
This ROI is paid out daily, with how much paid out determined by how much an AdBrook affiliate has cumulatively invested:
- $10 to $500 = 1 x the daily ROI rate
- $510 to $2500 =1.05 x the daily ROI rate
- $2510 to $10,000 = 1.15 x the daily ROI rate
- $10,010 to $25,000 = 1.3 x the daily ROI rate
- $25,010 or more = 1.5 x the daily ROI rate
Note that the daily ROI rate is a floating percentage set by AdBrook. Also note that 20% of all ROI payouts must be reinvested.
Referral commissions are paid on investments made by recruited affiliates, paid out down three levels of recruitment (unilevel):
- level (personally recruited affiliates) – 7%
- level 2 – 2%
- level 3 – 1%
An AdBrook affiliate can increase this referral commission by qualifying as a “representative”, with Representative affiliates earn 10% on level 1, 3% on level 2 and 2% on level 3.
To qualify as a Representative, an AdBrook affiliate must invest at least $500 and ‘record a promotional video in your country language, which contain your real face and voice.
Affiliate membership with AdBrook is free, however affiliates must invest at least $10 if they wish to participate in the income opportunity.
As such the defacto minimum cost of AdBrook affiliate membership is $10.
Using the well-worn advertising credits model, AdBrook operate a relatively straight-forward Ponzi scheme.
A fact the company does little to hide:
There is no other provided source of revenue flowing into AdBrook, other than affiliate investment.
Adbrook is company, which sharing profit from ads to all investors.
The money you pay for an ad package is also your deposit to our investment system.
This shuffling of newly invested funds to pay off existing investors, qualifies AdBrook as a Ponzi scheme.
There’s also an element of “pay to play” built into the model, with a $500 minimum investment boosting an affiliate’s referral commission potential.
As with all Ponzi schemes once new affiliate investment slows down AdBrook will find itself unable to meet its daily ROI obligations.
Affiliates will first notice the daily ROI gradually begin to decrease, before AdBrook stops paying out altogether.
At that point the scheme has collapsed, with the majority of investors having lost any funds invested.
