FutureAdPro Review: FutureNet launch a revshare Ponzi
FutureAdPro was announced earlier this year and is an opportunity being launched under the FutureNet brand.
The FutureAdPro website identifies the company as a “FutureNet Advertising Program”.
FutureNet is a $1685 six-tier matrix cycler Ponzi scheme launched in early 2014.
On his Facebook profile, Roman Ziemian identifies himself as owner and CEO of FutureNet. Stephan Morgenstern is also identified as a founder of the company.
In late 2015 FutureNet launched a reload scheme, Blue Ocean Online. Like FutureNet, Blue Ocean Online saw affiliates invest in matrix positions on the promise of a ROI.
Alexa traffic estimates for the Blue Ocean Online website suggest the scheme collapsed shortly after launch.
FutureNet itself has been floundering for most of 2015, with an overall decline now prompting the launch of FutureAdPro.
Read on for a full review of the FutureAdPro MLM business opportunity.
The FutureAdPro Product Line
FutureAdPro has no retailable products or services.
Once signed up, FutureAdPro affiliates invest in packs to participate in the FutureAdPro income opportunity.
Bundled with each pack investment are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the FutureAdPro website.
The FutureAdPro Compensation Plan
The FutureAdPro compensation plan sees affiliates invest in $50 packs, with an advertised $60 ROI paid out on each investment.
How many packs a FutureAdPro affiliate can invest in is determined by how much they pay in affiliate fees:
- no fee = investment in a maximum of 50 packs
- $30 a year = investment in a maximum of 100 packs
- $45 every six months or $80 a year = investment in a maximum of 300 packs
- $70 every 6 months or $130 a year = investment in a maximum of 500 packs
- $95 every 6 months or $180 a year = investment in a maximum of 1000 packs
How much an affiliate pays in fees also dictates their referral commission rate:
- no fee = 3% on level 1
- $30 a year = 4% on level 1 and 1% on level 2
- $45 every six months or $80 a year = 6% on level 1, 3% on level 2 and 1% on level 3
- $70 every 6 months or $130 a year = 7% on level 1, 3% on level 2 and 1% on levels 4 and 5
- $95 every 6 months or $180 a year = 8% on level 1, 4% on level 2 and 1% on levels 4 to 6
The levels above refer to a unilevel compensation structure. In a unilevel compensation structure an affiliate is placed at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
As per the referral commission rates above, FutureAdPro cap payable unilevel levels at six.
Affiliate membership with FutureAdPro is either
- $30 a year
- $45 every 6 months or $80 a year
- $70 every 6 months or $130 a year
- $95 every 6 months or $180 a year
How much an affiliate pays in fees directly impacts their earning potential through the FutureAdPro compensation plan.
Earnings through the FutureAdPro compensation plan also require at least one $50 pack investment.
With FutureNet starved of funds and Blue Ocean Group having flopped, the latest reboot scheme sees Roman Ziemian delve deeper into the MLM underbelly.
FutureAdPro is a cookie-cutter Ponzi scheme based on the well-established ad-credit model.
FutureAdPro Affiliates invest funds on the pretext of purchasing advertising, with ROIs offered on investment. These ROIs are paid out of newly invested funds, making FutureAdPro a Ponzi scheme.
As with all such schemes, once new affiliate recruitment dies out, FutureAdPro will find itself unable to meet its ROI obligations.
Being a daily-based ROI scheme, this will manifest itself by way of withdrawal problems. Daily ROI rates paid out are likely just numbers on a screen until a pack matures and the full $60 has been recorded.
As evidenced by the short life-span of Blue Ocean Online, Ponzi reload schemes typically collapse much sooner than their predecessors. This occurs because they are usually bogged down with investors who lost funds in the previous scheme.
Carrying investors from two Ponzi schemes before it, don’t expect FutureAdPro to be any different.
Update 13th September 2018 – FutureAdPro appears to be on the verge of collapse, following FutureNet’s announcement that ROI withdrawals will only be paid in FuturoCoin.
Update 26th January 2019 – FutureAdPro has collapsed for a second time.
In the Ponzi scheme’s third incarnation, FutureNet has slashed ROI payments by up to 60%.
