HertzCar Review: Leasing ruse “click a button” app Ponzi
HertzCar fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.
HertzCar’s website domain (“hertzcar.live”), was privately registered on June 6th, 2023.
If we look at HertzCar’s website source-code we find Chinese:
This strongly suggests whoever is running HertzCar has ties to China.
It should be noted that while it is being run by Chinese scammers, website traffic analysis from SimilarWeb reveals HertzCar is primarily being promoted in Kenya (36%), the US (28%), Finland (20%) and Canada (17%).
I also came across HertzCar marketing for Pakistan during my research.
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.
HertzCar has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market HertzCar affiliate membership itself.

- level 2 – 4%

HertzCar affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity requires a minimum Rs. 2100 investment.
HertzCar is yet another “click a button” app Ponzi scheme.
HertzCar’s “click a button” Ponzi ruse is the leasing model. This time it’s cars from well-known hire company Hertz.
Obviously Hertz has nothing to do with HertzCar. The scammers running it have misappropriated the company name and logo.
HertzCar’s presented ruse is affiliates log in and click a button (the more invested the more the button needs to be clicked).
Clicking the button purportedly leases out the cars and generates revenue. For some reason HertzCar shares a percentage of this revenue with its affiliate investors.
If that makes no sense it’s because it doesn’t. Randoms clicking a button in an app doesn’t lease out cars.
In reality clicking a button inside HertzCar’s app does nothing. All HertzCar does is recycle newly invested funds to pay earlier investors.
HertzCar is part of a group of “click a button” app Ponzis that emerged in late 2021.
Including HertzCar, BehindMLM has thus far documented over a hundred “click a button” app Ponzis. Most of them last a few weeks to a few months before collapsing.
“Click a button” app Ponzis disappear by disabling both their websites and app. This tends to happen without notice, leaving the majority of investors with a loss (inevitable Ponzi math).
The same group of Chinese scammers are believed to be behind the “click a button” app Ponzi plague.
