OSM Software Solutions Review: 45c a day game app Ponzi
OSM Software Solutions (aka OSM Techno), provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.
OSM Software Solutions’ website domain (“osmtechno.com”) was privately registered on October 30th, 2020.
On YouTube OSM Software Solutions goes by Osmose Technology Pvt Ltd.
Osmose Technology has its own website, on which it discloses;
Osmose Technology Pvt Ltd was established in 2019 & is headquartered in Pune India.
No executive information is provided.
Publicly available corporate records reveal three Osmose Technology Directors; Prashant Ramchandra Roundale, Vijay Baburao Mahajan and Avinash Shankar Asabe.
Possibly due to language barriers, I was unable to find concrete information on any of these individuals myself.
What I did find is a great research piece by Kotian of ViewsNews, who provides insight into the corporate structure and key promoters of OSM Software Solutions.
Unfortunately only Avinash Asabe has a face (right). Supposedly Vijay Mahajan is on the run. Prashant Roundale isn’t mentioned in the piece.
In any event, for whatever reason Roundale, Mahajan and Asabe are running OSM Software Solutions from the city of Pune, in Maharashtra, India.
For whatever reason they aren’t keen on providing this information on either OSM Software Solutions’ or Osmose Technology’s respective websites.
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.
OSM Software Solutions’ Products
OSM Software Solutions has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market OSM Software Solutions affiliate membership itself.
OSM Software Solutions affiliate membership provides access to a “social and gaming platform”.
To the advantage of gamers, it is completely independent, autonomous games where players may assume 100 % uptime and provide demonstrably equal gameplay with actual control of their in-game goods.
OSM Software Solutions’ Compensation Plan
OSM Software Solutions affiliates invest $32 every 120 days. This is done on the promise of a 45 cent daily return.
Thus the math works out to be $32 in and $54 out every 120 days.
After 120 days a new $32 investment must be made in order to continue receiving a daily ROI.
OSM Software Solutions pays referral commissions on returns 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.
OSM Software Solutions caps payable unilevel team levels at seven.
Referral commissions are paid as a percentage of the daily 45 cent ROI paid across these seven levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 5%
- level 2 – 10%
- level 3 – 15%
- level 4 – 20%
- level 5 – 25%
- level 6 – 30%
- level 7 – 35%
Note that the following qualification criteria applies in order to unlock commissions on each of the seven unilevel team levels:
- recruit and maintain one affiliate = commissions paid on level 1
- recruit and maintain three affiliates = commissions paid on level 2
- recruit and maintain five affiliates = commissions paid on level 3
- recruit and maintain seven affiliates = commissions paid on level 4
- recruit and maintain nine affiliates = commissions paid on level 5
- recruit and maintain twelve affiliates = commissions paid on level 6
- recruit and maintain fifteen affiliates = commissions paid on level 7
Note that recruited affiliates must be active with their rolling $32 investment.
Referral Commission Restrictions
OSM Software Solutions affiliate are capped at earning $25 a day in referral commissions.
This can be increased to $1000 a day by meeting the following criteria:
- personally earn $25 a day in referral commissions;
- generate $25 a day in referral commissions in your strongest unilevel team leg; and
- generate $25 a day in referral commissions across the rest of your unilevel team legs (combined).
Joining OSM Software Solutions
OSM Software Solutions affiliate membership is tied to a rolling $32 investment, payable every 120 days.
The ruse behind OSM Software Solutions’ daily returns opportunity is that their gaming platform is profitable.
OSM Software’s gaming platform isn’t so much a platform as it is shovelware available Google Play.
Reviews for games provided by OSM Software suggest bare functionality at best:
30th Nov 2020 – When I installed this game my phone slows down but 2 days later this problem is fixed and my device don’t laggs anymore. In my parents phone (SAMSUNG J4) it crashes every time.
18th Jan 2021 – The registration process itself does not move ahead, the system does not allow the emial to be enerred and even when it is written the system does not allows the mobile to type the password and confirm as well.
18th Jan 2021 – Worst game to play , not satisfied with the game crashing before even player gets registered . Minimum is 1 star , it deserves 0 star rating.
19th Jan 2021 – I don’t know how exactly the game is because I m unable to register after trying several times.
19th Jan 2021 – I am sorry to say that this app is not working with my android phone. Still no sign of registration process doesn’t work some issues with the sever or company policy work out.
That’s just a snapshot of feedback from one of OSM Software Solutions’ games, the generically named Space Shooter.
The reason OSM Software Solution’s games are half-assed is because they have nothing to do with the company’s MLM opportunity.
The only reason OSM Software Solutions’ shovelware exists, is so the company can point to the in-game ads as a source of revenue.
If that were the case though, why charge affiliates $32 every 120 days?
The other thing I want to touch on is the “daily task” requirement.
OSM Software Solutions’ didn’t initially launch with a task requirement. It was introduced in early November 2020.
The tasks themselves are meaningless, social media manipulation based on OSM Software Solutions’ own announcement.
Every member has to complete each task to avail daily benefits.
If a member do not [sic] complete particular task then he/she is not entitled to get daily benefits and incentives.
There are several category of tasks as page like, page follow, YouTube channel subscription, application installation, registration etc.
This is the last reminder from the company and no arguments will be heard from 11th Nov, 2020. It is mandatory for all.
In other words, OSM Software Solutions’ daily task is manufactured legitimacy.
This is also probably an attempt to limit account stacking, i.e. OSM Software Solutions affiliates having multiple accounts.
On the regulatory front issues with OSM Software Solutions are twofold; securities and pyramid fraud – both of which are illegal in India.
OSM Software Solutions’ passive investment opportunity is a securities offering. $32 in, $54 out every 120 days.
The nature of the return is passive, as the busy-body tasks OSM Software Solutions has affiliate investors do doesn’t contribute to return revenue.
OSM Software Solutions provides no evidence it has registered its investment opportunity with financial regulators in India or anywhere else.
Alexa currently estimates 99.9% of traffic to OSM Software Solutions’ website originates out of India.
With there being no retail component to OSM Software Solutions MLM opportunity, commissions are thus tied to recruitment of new affiliate investors.
Indeed the only way to fully qualify for referral commissions is to recruit and maintain fifteen affiliate investors.
As it stands, the only verifiable source of revenue entering OSM Software Solutions is new investment. The use of new investment to pay a $54 ROI every 120 days makes OSM Software Solutions a Ponzi pyramid hybrid.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve OSM Software Solutions of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
