Pluritec Review: AI trading bot ruse Boris CEO Ponzi
Pluritec fails to provide verifiable ownership or executive information on its website.
Pluritec’s marketing material cites “Miroslav Jogevic” as its founder.
Miroslav Jogevic doesn’t exist outside of Pluritec’s marketing. That’s because he’s played by a Ukrainian singer/actor.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to pin down the actor’s name. Circa 2018-2019 though he was a singer/instrumentalist for Singwell, a Ukrainian singing school.
Update 23rd September 2023 – Based on the blue text on the Singwell display above, the actor playing “Miroslav Jogevic” appears to be named Ivan Podkalyuzin. /end update
Prior to hiring the actor playing Jogevic, Pluritec’s marketing videos were hosted by robodubbed AI avatars.
Typically Boris CEO schemes are the work of Russians. It’s unclear whether the actor playing Jogevic was hired by Russians or Ukrainians.
On August 23rd Pluritec uploaded a staged event video that, as far as I can tell, was held in London.
Surprisingly, the actor playing Jogevic wasn’t there. The hired cast appears to be a mix of eastern Europeans and Londoners.
Pluritec’s website domain (“pluritec.co”), was privately registered on June 18th, 2023.
Update 14th November 2023 – After collapsing on their .CO domain, Pluritec has rebooted on “pluritec.ltd”.
Pluritec’s .LTD domain was privately registered on November 10th, 2023. /end update
In an attempt to appear legitimate, Pluritec provides a shell company certificate for “Pluritec Limited”, purportedly incorporated in the UK on June 23rd, 2023.
Due to the ease with which scammers are able to incorporate shell companies with bogus details, for the purpose of MLM due-diligence these certificates are meaningless.
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.
Pluritec has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market Pluritec affiliate membership itself.

Pluritec pays referral commissions 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.
Pluritec caps payable unilevel team levels at ten.
Referral commissions are paid as a percentage of cryptocurrency invested across these ten levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 9%
- level 2 – 6%
- levels 3 and 4 – 4%
- levels 5 to and 6 – 3%
- levels 7 and 8 – 2%
- levels 9 and 10 – 1%

Pluritec affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity requires a minimum $25 investment.
Pluritec solicits investment in tron (TRX) and tether (USDT).
Despite only existing for a few months, Pluritec pitches itself as a ” leader in stock market asset trading using advanced technology and artificial intelligence”.
Pluritec fails to provide evidence it is using trading revenue to pay affiliate withdrawals. Furthermore, Pluritec’s business model fails the Ponzi logic test.
If Pluritec already has an AI trading bot generating 3% a day, what do they need your money for?
On the regulatory front, Pluritec’s passive returns investment scheme constitutes a securities offering.
Pluritec fails to provide evidence it has registered with financial regulators (including the FCA in the UK), meaning that at a minimum Pluritec is committing securities fraud.
As it stands, the only verifiable source of revenue entering Pluritec is new investment. Using new investment to pay affiliate withdrawals would make Pluritec a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve Pluritec of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
Update 14th November 2023 – Pluritec has collapsed. As at the time of this update, Pluritec’s website is no longer accessible.
