FusionRev Review: $2 to $20 ad-credit Ponzi investment scheme
There is no information on the FusionRev website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The FusionRev website domain was registered on the 18th of May 2016, however the domain registration is set to private.
The official FusionRev Facebook group has one admin, Chahal Nicks (right).
On his own Facebook profile, Nicks lists his location as Dublin, Ireland. This is presumably where FusionRev is being operated from.
Of note is that in emails to FusionRev affiliates, Chahal Nicks reverses his name to Nick Chahal.
As far as I can tell Chahal doesn’t have an MLM history.
Read on for a full review of the FusionRev MLM opportunity.
The FusionRev Product Line
FusionRev has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market FusionRev affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up FusionRev affiliates can invest in packs and participate in the attached income opportunity.
Bundled with each pack investment are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the FusionRev website.
The FusionRev Compensation Plan
The FusionRev compensation plan sees affiliates invest $2 to $20 on the promise of an advertised ROI.
How much of a ROI is paid out is determined by how much a FusionRev affiliate invests:
- $2 pack = 115% ROI (limit 100 packs)
- $5 pack = 120% ROI (limit 100 packs)
- $10 pack = 125% ROI (limit 100 packs)
- $20 pack = 130% ROI (no limit)
In order to qualify for a daily ROI payout, FusionRev affiliates must view company-supplied advertisements. ROI withdrawals are capped at $150 a day.
Note that depending on which pack a FusionRev affiliate invests in, the following ROI percentage amounts must be reinvested:
- $2 pack – 40% reinvestment rate
- $5 pack – 45% reinvestment rate
- $10 pack – 50% reinvestment rate
- $20 pack – 55% reinvestment rate
Referral commissions are available on funds invested by recruited affiliates, paid out down three levels of recruitment (unilevel):
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 7%
- level 2 – 3%
- level 3 – 1%
Affiliate membership with FusionRev is free, however affiliates must invest between $2 and $20 if they wish to participate in the attached MLM opportunity.
Under the guise of selling advertising, FusionRev serves up a cookie-cutter ad-credit Ponzi scheme.
FusionRev affiliates invest between $2 and $20 on the promise of an advertised ROI. New affiliate investment is the only identifiable source of revenue entering the company, thus ROIs are paid out of subsequently invested funds.
The use of newly invested funds to pay off existing investors makes FusionRev a Ponzi scheme.
Bundled ad-credits are neither here nor there, serving only as pseudo-compliance to facilitate financial fraud.
If FusionRev were actually selling ad-credits, logically unused ad-credits would attract a refund.
Instead, as per FusionRev’s refund policy:
Can I get a refund?
No Refunds Are Given.
With newly invested funds immediately used to pay off existing investors, why FusionRev can’t offer refunds should be obvious. Thus it is the investment scheme being marketed and not advertising services.
In typical Ponzi fashion, FusionRev channels invested funds through mandatory reinvestment and a caps on all but the highest level of investment ($20).
Nick Chahal and early investors will own the majority of positions at the $20 level, with funds invested at the lower levels funneled up to them.
In order for Chahal to make off with the majority of invested funds, the majority of FusionRev affiliates must lose out.
