Batman Review: 201.6% every 6 hours Russian Ponzi
Batman provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.
Batman’s website domain registration details are shielded by the .LI registrar.
Batman’s website defaults to Russian. Russian and English are the only two native available languages provided.
Alexa currently ranks Russia as the top source of traffic to Batman’s website (24%), followed by Ukraine (6%) and Algeria (5%).
On February 4th the Bank of Russia issued Batman a pyramid scheme warning.
Batman also has an official vKontakte profile. vKontakte is Russia’s largest social network.
All of this points to Batman being run by Russians. The Ukraine is also a possibility.
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.
Batman has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market Batman affiliate membership itself.
Batman’s Compensation Plan
Batman affiliates invest funds on the promise of advertised returns.
- Classical – invest $1 to $499 and receive 122.4% after 6 hours
- Advanced – invest $500 to $4999 and receive 136.8% after 6 hours
- Original – invest $5000 to $50,000 and receive 201.6% after 6 hours
The MLM side of Batman pays on recruitment of affiliate investors.
Batman Affiliate Ranks
There are four ranks within Batman’s compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:
- Student – sign up as a Batman affiliate and have earned less than $100
- Clerk – have earned at least $100 to $1000
- Businessman – have earned at least $1001 to $5000
- Boss – have earned $5000 or more
Batman counts earnings as a combination of returns paid out and commissions.
Batman pays referral commissions down three levels of recruitment (unilevel):
Batman determines referral commission rates based on rank:
- Students earn 5% on level 1 (personally recruited affiliates), 2% on level 2 and 1% on level 3
- Clerks earn 6% on level 1, 3% on level 2 and 2% on level 3
- Businessmen earn 7% on level 1, 4% on level 2 and 3% on level 3
- Boss’ earn 10% on level 1, 5% on level 2 and 4% on level 3
Bonus ROI Rates
Batman rewards affiliates with a bonus ROI percentage, again based on rank:
- Clerks earn a 1% ROI bonus
- Businessmen earn a 3% ROI bonus
- Boss’ earn a 5% ROI bonus
Batman affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity requires a minimum $1 investment.
Batman solicits investment in USD, bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum and tether.
Batman… I, uh… what?
Batman claims to be a “unique dollar business game” that offers a “high return on investment!”
In reality it’s a pretty ordinary MLM Ponzi scheme.
What makes Batman novel is its blatant use of Batman IP theft to push its scam:
Thankfully Batman’s creators haven’t gone to the effort to create some bullshit fictional backstory. The Batman Ponzi scheme is presented as is, because… y’know, whatever.
Needless to say if the scammers behind Batman are in Russia, they aren’t worried about DC Comics coming after them.
With Batman offering 201.6% every 6 hours, it probably wouldn’t be worth their time taking any action anyway.
Batman’s ROI liability is over 800% a day, more when compounded. That isn’t going to last long.
As with every MLM Ponzi scheme, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve Batman of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
But…. It’s Batman!! What could possibly go wrong?!
What kind of Joker is behind this scheme, anyway? Riddle me that, huh?
They’re lucky they’re well out of reach of D.C.’s cadre of lawyers. They’re cold-hearted as Mr. Freeze, and looking for any excuse to rip someone a new ice hole. One you could stuff The Penguin into.
“Stand clear, Robin!”
(With apologies to Adam West, Cesar Romero, Frank Gorshin, Eli Wallach, Burgess Meredith, and Burt Ward.)
Since the concept of this MLM Ponzi is so funny, I decided — for fun and sport — to see if I can find out who is behind it.
Not sure that I was able to, but found something surprising, and potentially very interesting in the process.
The same ip which hosts “batman.li” hosts many other domains connected to HYIP Ponzis such as Cashroi Limited and Pinghash:
Not 100% sure but these are likely the same people who are doing batman.li
Of the domains hosted on that ip, only “bosss.us” (which is connected another HYIP Ponzi) seems to contain some potentially interesting registrant info:
The name Margel Fors doesn’t seem to be linked to any idetifiable person, but interestingly enough, the “42 Upper Berkeley St” is linked to a firm of Russian businessman Sergey Mayzus:
MAYZUS FINANCIAL SERVICES LIMITED
Mr Mayzus is notorius for providing payment services for Alexander Vinnik and BTC-e(who also laundered Ruja’s bitcoins back in the day –> https://behindmlm.com/companies/onecoin/onecoin-continues-fraud-through-santander-bank-pl/#comment-442192), and his the above mentioned company tops the charts in SAR mentions in the FinCen files leak:
So, given Mr Mayzus’ closeness to cybercriminals and dirty money, could the “42 Upper Berkeley St” on the HYIP domain registry info be something other than a coincidence or prank — perhaps a clue about his mastermind role in HYIP cyber crime as well?
Could be. Hard to tell who exactly is behind a Russian Ponzi because they don’t typically work alone.
Another likely associated scam is “afon.cc”. It’s promoted on the Batman website without a referral link.
OneCoin is starting to feel like the Kevin Bacon of MLM Ponzi schemes. You can link everything to it in six degrees or less.
Someone in Russia is going on an IP theft Ponzi spree.
Here’s another one (Scooby Doo), launched in the last few weeks: “scooby-game.biz”
I invested $50 dollars and profit generated. Next day applied for withdraw into PM and TRC20 wallets.
Withdrawal money deducted from my balance and Batman website is showing that it paid out successfully. But I have not received any payment.
Could you please help and guide me? Thanks.
Sure. You invested in a Ponzi scheme and your money is gone. Sorry for your loss.
