Caelus Energy Alaska Review: Fake oil gas company Ponzi scheme
Caelus Energy Alaska provides no legitimate information on its website about who owns or runs the business.
Caelus Energy Alaska’s website does have an “about us” section, but it’s populated with fictional management represented by stock photos.
The Caelus Energy Alaska website domain (“caeoil.com”) was first registered in 2017.
The private domain registration was last updated on March 27th, 2019.
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.

Caelus Energy Alaska has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Caelus Energy Alaska affiliate membership itself.

Participation in the attached income opportunity however requires a minimum $50 investment annually.
Caelus Energy Alaska’s ROI ruse is a bunch of baloney about oil and gas resources ‘in the Oguruk field on the North Slope of Alaska‘.
Well, sort of.
Everyone on the Caelus Energy Alaska “about us” website page is fictional, except for James C. Musselman.
Musselman is cited as Caelus Energy Alaska’s CEO, President and Founding Partner.
Here’s the thing; Musselman is actually a real person and he heads up Caelus Energy.
They operate from a different website (“caelusenergy.com”), which admittedly looks pretty dodgy.
I was able to find third-party media citing Musselman dating back to 2016, so at least on the surface it appears to be a real company.
So what is Caelus Energy Alaska all about?
As far as I can tell a scammer or group of scammers have simply borrowed the name.
Caelus Energy claim Musselman
has a strong history of successful development projects on several continents, all of which are still producing.
The notion he’d be soliciting investments from randoms over the internet, committing securities fraud in the process, is unlikely.
Points for effort though. The Caelus Energy Alaska scammers even went so far as to include a Dallas suite address.
Curiously, this address is also used by Mercador Energy, who cite “Will Musselman” as part of their “team”.
Given Caelus Energy Alaska is obviously fraudulent, I didn’t feel the need to go down that rabbit hole.
The only verifiable source of revenue entering Caelus Energy Alaska is new investment.
Using new investment to pay existing affiliate investor a daily ROI makes Caelus Energy Alaska a Ponzi scheme.
Ponzi math guarantees that when Caelus Energy Alaska inevitably collapses, the majority of investors will lose money.
