Energy Funds Review: 400% ROI in ten days Ponzi scheme
Energy Funds provides no information about who owns or runs the company on its website.
Energy Funds’ website domain (“energyfunds.org”) was first registered in 2008. The registration was last updated with private details in November 2019.
Through the Wayback Machine I was able to confirm that prior to November 2019, Energy Funds’ current website didn’t exist.
This means that November 2019 is when the domain’s current owners took possession of it.
Despite not existing up until nine months ago, Energy Funds claims it was “established in 2003”.
In a further attempt to appear legitimate, Energy Funds provides a fake address in Buffalo, New York on its website.
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.
Energy Funds’ Products
Energy Funds has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Energy Funds affiliate membership itself.
Energy Funds’ Compensation Plan
Energy Funds affiliates invest fiat and bitcoin on the promise of advertised returns.

- level 2 – 3%
- level 3 – 1%
Joining Energy Funds
Energy Funds affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity however requires a minimum $1500 investment.
Energy Funds claims to generate external revenue via binary options.
ENERGY FUNDS is a regulated broker with Federal Financial Markets Service (FFMS) , Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and Cyprus Securities (CYSEC).
ENERGY FUNDS was established in 2003 trading forex and real estate initially, till expansion into Binary Options.
No evidence of Energy Funds conducting binary options trading is provided. Nor is there any evidence of Energy Funds using any other source of external revenue to pay advertised returns.
As for Energy Funds’ regulatory claims, FFMS (Russia) and CYSEC (Cyprus) are irrelevant for due-diligence. Both jurisdictions operate with little to no regulation of MLM companies.
What I can confirm is Energy Funds is not registered with the CFTC. This shouldn’t be surprising, given pretty much every claim made on Energy Funds website is bogus.
That includes this claim, taken from Energy Funds’ website terms and conditions:
ENERGY FUNDS is based in the United States and our Services are subject to U.S. law.
Energy Funds was set up in late 2019 and is run by persons unknown, from who knows where. The only verifiable source of revenue entering the company is new investment.
Using new investment to pay affiliates returns as much as 400% over ten days makes Energy Funds a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment runs dry so too will new investment.
This will starve Energy Funds of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
