Rypex Trade Review: Automated trading technologies Ponzi
Rypex Trade provides no credible information about who owns or runs the company on its website.
Cited as CEO of Rypex Trade is Phillip Orr, who doesn’t exist outside of a brief mention in Rypex Trade’s marketing.
A video uploaded to Rypex Trade’s official YouTube channel features CFO Albert Parson.
The interview takes place in a spotless virtual office. Both the interviewer and actor playing Parson have better than average masked eastern European accents.
You can tell English is not their native language if you listen closely (pronunciation and grammar).
Both Phillip Orr and Albert Parson are prime Boris CEO candidates.
On its website, Rypex Trade presents itself as “a British company”. To support that facade, the company provides a UK incorporation certificate for Rypex Trading Limited.
UK incorporation is dirt cheap and effectively unregulated. It is a favored jurisdiction for scammers looking to incorporate dodgy companies.
Rypex Trade also misrepresents their meaningless UK incorporation as an investment services license.
The base of successful and secure investments is a reliable business partner. This depends on how legal your partner’s business is.
In the case of Rypex, you get an absolutely reliable investment partner, which you can convince yourself.
Licence 12699421 given at Companies House, Hardiff, on 26th June 2020.
For the record, Companies House has a Cardiff office. Hardiff doesn’t exist.
At the time of publication, Alexa estimates the top three sources of traffic to Rypex Trade’s website are Vietnam (32%), Bangladesh (13%) and Turkey (5%).
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.

Joining Rypex Trade
Rypex Trade affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity however requires a minimum $50 to $1,000,000 initial investment.
Rypex Trade claims to generate external revenue via “automated trading technologies”.
No evidence of trading taking place is provided. Nor is there any evidence of external revenue of any kind being actually used to pay returns.
By their own admission, Rypex Trade offers a passive investment opportunity.
We do not assign a bot trader for every investor. Your money works in the pool of the company trading accounts as an equal part of the total investments.
You do not need to perform trading operations and conclude transactions on your own. You just invest and make a profit.
When an MLM company offers a passive investment opportunity it’s classified as a securities offering.
Securities in the UK are regulated by the FCA. Rypex Trade is not registered with the FCA, meaning the company operates illegally.
Mind you that won’t matter much to Rypex Trade’s owner(s), seeing as they’re unlikely to be based out of the UK.
For Rypex Trade affiliates based outside of the UK, securities must be registered with financial regulators in every jurisdiction investment is solicited in.
That means unless Rypex Trade is registered with the financial regulator in your country, they are operating illegally there too. You might also be liable for securities fraud by promoting unregistered securities.
As it stands, the only verifiable source of revenue entering Rypex Trade is new investment.
Using new investment to pay existing affiliates daily returns makes Rypex Trade a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies down so too will new investment.
This will starve Rypex Trade of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind MLM Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
