New Trend Network Review: MMM Global give/get help Ponzi clone
New Trend Network’s website provides no information about who owns or runs the business.
The New Trend Network website domain (“newtrendnetwork.com”) was privately registered on December 24th, 2018.
Alexa website statistics for the New Trend Network website peg South Africa as the primary source of traffic (85%).
It is highly likely that whoever is running New Trend Network is based out of South Africa itself.
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.
New Trend Network Products
New Trend Network has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market New Trend Network affiliate membership itself.
The New Trend Network Compensation Plan
New Trend Network affiliates invest $40 to $4000 on the promise of an 80% monthly ROI.
Referral commissions are paid out via a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate 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.
Referral commissions are as a percentage of funds invested across four unilevel team levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 20%
- level 2 – 2%
- level 3 – 3%
- level 4 – 5%
Joining New Trend Network
New Trend Network affiliate membership is free.
A minimum $40 investment however is required to participate in the attached MLM opportunity.
New Trend Network describes itself as a “peer-to-peer network”.
What this means is affiliates pay affiliates, which in the context of investing funds and receiving an ongoing 80% monthly ROI, makes New Trend Network a Ponzi scheme.
Through use of “provide help” (invest) and “get help” (withdraw) terminology, New Trend Network is basically an MMM Global Ponzi clone.
Referral commissions on invested funds adds an additional pyramid layer to the scheme.
As with all Ponzi schemes, when affiliate recruitment inevitably drops off so too will new investment.
This will starve New Trend Network of invested funds, eventually prompting a collapse.
The South African chapter of the MMM Global Ponzi scheme collapsed in 2016.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
The only people who will make money in New Trend Network are the scammers running it and a few early investors.
