Nacometa Review: Voucher ruse gifting scheme
Nacometa provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.
Nacometa’s website domain (“nacometa.com”) was registered on January 29th, 2020.
The registered owner is Yangon System S.R.O, a shell company with ties to the Czech Republic and Russia.
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.
Nacometa has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Nacometa itself.
Nacometa’s Compensation Plan
Nacometa affiliates gift funds to each other through an undisclosed matrix structure.
Upon signing up, a new Nacometa affiliate is provided a “certificate”. Said certificate directs them to gift funds to whoever recruited them.
After this gifting payment is made, the affiliate is then directed to gift additional funds to three other Nacometa affiliates.
Although not explicitly clarified, these affiliates are presumed to be upline of the recruiting affiliate in the company-wide matrix.
Payments are managed through the third-party platform ImRix.
A marketing example provided by Nacometa suggests gifting payments are monthly recurring:
Once all of this is done, the gifting affiliate qualifies to receive gifting payments from four subsequently recruited affiliates.
This suggests Nacometa uses a 4×1 matrix to track gifting payments, however I wasn’t able to verify this with absolute certainty.
There also appears to be an pass-up system in play. Nacometa’s marketing video explains
in the future you will confirm transfers … from other community members.
No specifics are provided but I imagine these payments are passed up because other affiliates stopped their monthly gifting payments.
Nacometa affiliate membership costs and associated gifting payments are not disclosed.
A marketing example suggests recurring monthly gifting payments range from €13.33 to €18.33 EUR a month.
Whether multiple gifting payments are required to be made each month is unclear.
Nacometa markets itself as a “direct exchange of resources between members” that is “absolutely legal”.
In reality Nacometa is a simple illegal gifting scheme.
New recruits sign up and gift funds to existing Nacometa affiliates. This in turn qualifies them to receive gifting payments from directly and indirectly subsequently recruited affiliates.
Nacometa using “vouchers” to direct gifting payments or pretending participants are buying “technical services” from whoever recruited them, doesn’t in any way make cash gifting legal.
As far as I can tell ImRix is a third-party platform that has nothing to do with Nacometa, outside of permitting them to use their platform to commit fraud.
Should they wish to, ImRix could investigate and shut down accounts found to be part of Nacometa. On top of that the usual pyramid scheme rules apply.
MLM gifting schemes rely on constant recruitment to keep the scam going. Once recruitment inevitably dies down, so too do payments at the bottom of the company-wide matrix.
These affiliates stop paying their monthly gifting fees, meaning those above them stop getting paid.
If no new recruits are found, those affiliates stop paying their monthly gifting fees and so on and so forth.
Eventually an irreversible collapse is triggered, at which point math guarantees the majority of Nacometa affiliates realize a loss.
