Rapid Growth Online Marketing Review: Mangosteen Ponzi ROIs
Rapid Growth Online Marketing provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.
The Rapid Growth Online Marketing website domain (“rapidgrowthonlinenet”) was registered on March 10th, 2017. Kevin Campbell is listed as the owner, with an address in London, UK also provided.
Further research reveals multiple businesses using the same address, suggesting it’s a virtual office. There’s also no information available on Kevin Campbell and his relationship to Rapid Growth Online Marketing.
An extremely blurry incorporation certificate for “RapidGrowth Online Marketing” is provided on the company website.
The certificate was issued to Mary Grace Oloya Cezar on March 8, 2017 by the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry.
A search of the DTI website confirms the incorporation is valid, however who Mary Cezar is and her relationship to Rapid Growth Online Marketing is again unclear.
Perusal of the Rapid Growth Online Marketing website reveals it is primarily targeted at residents of the Philippines.
Quoted prices for products are in the Philippine Peso and a contact address in Cavite, Philippines appears on the company’s “contact us” page.
It appears the UK information provided in the Rapid Growth Online Marketing domain registration is bogus.
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.
Rapid Growth Online Marketing Products
Rapid Growth Online Marketing’s flagship product is a “mangosteen fruits extract” supplement.
Mangosteen has been a part of the traditional medicine for a long time.
The health benefits of mangosteen are known since 18th century and it has been proven that these benefits are not just mythical.
Rapid Growth Online Marketing’s extract is sold in a bottle of 60 capsules for ₱1600 PHP ($31.75 USD).
Despite the above quoted price however, it appears the product is not available retail from Rapid Growth Online Marketing itself.
The Rapid Growth Online Marketing Compensation Plan
Rapid Growth Online Marketing’s compensation plan is a confusing mess of 12 month ROI plans and “group commissions” paid out via a 3×10 matrix.
Rapid Growth Online Marketing affiliates can invest up to ₱3 million PHP ($59,541 USD) on the promise of an advertised ₱4.08 million ($80,976 USD) ROI after 12 months.
- invest ₱500,000 PHP ($9923 USD) and receive a monthly ₱10,000 PHP ($198 USD) ROI for twelve months (₱620,000 PHP or $12,305 USD) plus a sedan car
- invest ₱1,000,000 PHP ($19,847 USD) and receive a monthly ₱20,000 PHP ($396 USD) ROI for twelve months (₱1.02 million PHP or $20,244 USD) plus an AUV car
- invest ₱2,000,000 PHP ($39,694 USD) and receive a monthly ₱50,000 PHP ($992 USD) ROI for twelve months (₱2.6 million PHP or $51,602 USD) plus an SUV car
- invest ₱3,000,000 PHP ($59,541 USD) and receive a monthly ₱90,000 PHP ($1786 USD) ROI for twelve months (₱4.08 million PHP or $80,976 USD) plus a sports car
At the end of twelve months the originally invested amount is returned.
Note that there are some discrepancies between investment amounts on the Rapid Growth Online Marketing website.
Rapid Growth Online Marketing pay residual commissions via a 3×10 matrix.
A 3×10 matrix places a Rapid Growth Online Marketing affiliate at the top of a matrix, with three positions directly under them:
These three positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these three positions into another three positions each (9 positions).
Levels three to nine of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with each new level housing three times as many positions as the previous level.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of Rapid Growth Online Marketing affiliates.
Commissions are paid as positions in the matrix are filled as follows:
- level 1 – ₱70 PHP per position filled ($1.39 USD)
- level 2 – ₱20 PHP per position filled (40 cents USD)
- level 3 – ₱10 PHP per position filled (20 cents USD)
- levels 4 to 8 – ₱5 PHP per position filled (10 cents USD)
- level 9 – ₱10 PHP per position filled (20 cents USD)
- level 10 – ₱15 PHP per position filled (30 cents USD)
Presumably these commissions are generated upon payment of an affiliate fee. Specific details are not provided in the Rapid Growth Online Marketing compensation plan.
Joining Rapid Growth Online Marketing
Rapid Growth Online Marketing is tied to payment of an undisclosed affiliate fee.
Full participation in the Rapid Growth Online Marketing income opportunity requires an investment of between ₱500,000 and ₱3,000,000 PHP annually ($9,923 to $59,541 USD).
Rapid Growth Online Marketing is a classic case of bundling an irrelevant product to a fraudulent compensation plan.
The mangosteen food supplement is a means to an end, that means being convincing people to sign up and invest large amounts of money.
The only verifiable source of revenue entering Rapid Growth Marketing is affiliate investment, the use of which to pay affiliates a monthly ROI makes it a Ponzi scheme.
The matrix commissions are tied to affiliate recruitment, adding an additional pyramid layer to the scheme.
From the amateurish website design, bogus UK domain registration details and cell phone photo quality uploads of the mangosteen product, it seems Rapid Growth Online Marketing has been designed as a quick hit and run money grab.
Monthly ROIs might pay out for a few months, but as soon as invested funds are exhausted expect whoever’s pulling the strings to cut and run.
