RobinHood Global Review: 17.5% weekly ROI Telegram Ponzi
RobinHood Global provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.
The RobinHood Global website domain (“robinhood.global”) was privately registered on October 1st, 2016.
The official RobinHood Global Facebook page was created on March 21st by a bogus “Robin Green” account, which itself was only created on October 17th, 2016.
As far as I can tell RobinHood Global is being run by someone from Russia or the Ukraine. Evidence supporting this is an active VKontakte social network profile (published in Russian), Russia being the third-largest source of traffic to the RobinHood Global website (Alexa) and the use of Yandex to track RobinHood Global website analytics.
Up until late March, RobinHood Global was also using a Telegram bot to coordinate affiliate investment. The use of a Telegram bot has thus far only been used by Russian and Ukrainian Ponzi schemes.
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.
RobinHood Global Products
RobinHood Global has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market RobinHood Global affiliate membership itself.
The RobinHood Global Compensation Plan
RobinHood Global affiliates invest $10 to $500 on the promise of a weekly 17.5% ROI for nine weeks (157.5%).
Referral commissions on downline investment 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.
RobinHood Global cap payable unilevel levels at four.
Commissions are paid out as a percentage of funds invested across these four levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 20%
- level 2 – 3%
- level 3 – 2%
- level 4 – 1%
Joining RobinHood Global
RobinHood Global affiliate membership is free. Free affiliates however can only earn referral commissions.
Full participation in the RobinHood Global income opportunity requires an investment of between $10 and $500.
The central theme of the English Robin Hood folklore is the concept of “robbing from the rich to give to the poor”.
In RobinHood Global the name has been appropriated to rob from new investors to give to those that have already invested.
This is otherwise known as Ponzi fraud.
The pseudo-compliance ruse behind RobinHood Global’s 17.5% weekly ROI is an “investment portfolio … managed by a team of experienced analysts”.
No proof of this is provided, nor is there any correlation between legitimate investment activity taking place and RobinHood Global’s 17.5% weekly ROI payout.
Furthermore the company’s business model does not pass the Ponzi logic test.
If the anonymous owner(s) of RobinHood Global were able to legitimately generate a consistent 17.5% weekly ROI, why would they be wasting their time soliciting investment from affiliates?
A 17.5% ROI translates to an annual return of 910%. With compounding each week, even a modest bank loan would turn into a fortune in a relative short amount of time.
The only verifiable source of revenue entering RobinHood Global is affiliate investment, which is obviously being used to fund ROI payouts.
As with all Ponzi schemes once affiliate recruitment dies out, so too will new funds entering the scheme.
This will see RobinHood Global unable to meet its weekly ROI liabilities, at which point the scheme collapses.
RobinHood Global won’t be any different.
