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.
Prior to FutureNet, Roman Ziemian (right) was Chief Operations Office of OneLine Online, a share-based Ponzi scheme. Before that he was promoting LEO, a personal development based recruitment scheme.
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%.
Ari Maccabi thinks he’s got it figured out why Behind MLM writes reviews:
Looks like a standard “ignoring of the newly invested funds to pay off existing investors” response.
“Yeah we’re a Ponzi scheme, but what about…”
There is no “what about”, FutureAdPro is a Ponzi scheme engaged in financial fraud.
As for the FutureNet social network, who uses it?
Does anybody seriously believe these guys have external advertisers lined up on Day 1 of FutureAdPro? And even if they had a token amount (ignoring the fact that legit advertisers aren’t interested in a dead social network whose only users are Ponzi investors), enough external revenue to cover the FutureAdPro ROIs offered?
Yeah, right. No matter how they spin it, FutureAdPro is just the same old AdSurfDaily ad-credit Ponzi model.
The slightly more technical term is “investment autosurf”. Autosurf programs that doesn’t involve money can be fraudulent if there’s any sort of “bonus” credit in the traffic exchanged.
Paying money with promise of making money back and a little extra is virtually CERTAIN to be a Ponzi.
But adherents of these schemes are not interested in the truth. They want reassurances that their money stream will continue. Anything else against that is to be denied, and anything for it is to be applauded. It’s simple motivated thinking.
Steve Lawson has to justify in own little mind that Future Net isn’t a Ponzi Scheme so he can keep scamming others. It’s his last hope now…
What, nothing about a lack of retail sales and the only commissions paid out tied to affiliate recruitment?
How… predictable. Nevemind the fact that FutureAdPro is a full-blown adcredit Ponzi scheme.
What Lawson thinks about facts is irrelevant, they stand on their own.
(Ozedit: Offtopic derail attempts removed)
Several points above are inaccurate. The company makes money from external advertisers, IT outsourcing services, graphic designing, video production, hosting, autoresponder … the list just goes on.
Also already using geo-targeting functionalities, to the ads to be displayed only to certain users.
I am ALL for identifying true scams and PONZI out there, but PLEASE, PLEASE, at least be accurate when you are trying to GENUINELY help people.
PS. Congrats to Steve for the recognition … In case you do not know, bad or good press, is still a PRESS and will help him adding members to his team! hahahahaha
None of which is proven and, more importantly, doesn’t negate the use of newly invested funds to pay off existing advertisers.
You can’t run an ad-credit Ponzi scheme and claim legitimacy based on other parts of your business.
If you’re using newly invested funds to pay off existing investors, whatever else you do or don’t do doesn’t matter.
Steve Lawson is still an attention whore even when it’s negative:
Lee Oshea is begging to be recognized as a scammer, too:
When you’re participating in a 6 tier matrix cycler with a money flipping Ponzi Scheme built in then warn people to forget about the other ones because most people will lose their money…SMH
“Boom… Just cleared $2,000 in commissions after only 13 Days in the Business…
We are literally just getting started and this business is really taking off…
Forget all these stupid cyclers and flipping scams that will see most people lose their money.. Get involved with a long term passive income opportunity that will pay you daily..”
Ryan Conley showing everyone how serious his mental health issues are:
Always ironic how the social network MLMs always proclaim the death of Facebook… whilst simultaneously promoting themselves on Facebook.
They can’t promote on their MLM social network because nobody but the affiliates use it.
So what about the Futuro Coin launched by Futurenet is it another scam program?
If Futuro Coin is an altcoin it’s probably going to be used to wipe FutureAdPro ROI liabilities. That seems to be all the rage with Ponzi scammers these days.
If Futuro Coin are non-public points with an internal value attached to them, you’re looking at a Ponzi points scheme (think OneCoin).
At the end of the day FutureNet began with a foundation of fraud. Anything they do after that is built on the proceeds of said fraud and is thus tainted.
Do not get tired (RH), 2 years later, he knows (OZ) he’s ridiculed! lol
Of course he will never admit it! It’s obvious. But at least we laugh well! LOL
FutureAdPro is just as much of a Ponzi scheme today as it was 2 years ago.
FutureNet went the softcock route and exit-scammed through an altcoin. I have no idea what there is to laugh about.
Oh right, you’re probably one of the few that stole from everybody else.
You’re not really laughing at me, you’re laughing at your victims. I personally couldn’t care less who you stole from.
Ponzi is a hackneyed word used in all sauces when we have no argument! Bravo!
But know that everyone is making fun of you. LOL
