Traffic Hurricane: Ernest Ganz launches Traffic Monsoon Ponzi clone
There is no information on the Traffic Hurricane website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Traffic Hurricane website domain (“traffichurricane.plus”) was registered on August 16th, however the domain registration has been set to private.
Further research reveals top Traffic Monsoon investors Sharon James naming Ernest “Ernie” Ganz as the owner of the company:
Like James, Ganz (right) was a top earner in Traffic Monsoon. Two weeks after the SEC shutdown Traffic Monsoon for being a $207 million dollar Ponzi scheme, Ganz was tied to Traffic Monsoon Plus.
Traffic Monsoon Plus was launched as a Ponzi clone of Traffic Monsoon. Ganz denied he had any official involvement in the scheme but it appears the same cannot be said of Traffic Hurricane.
On the business model side of things, Traffic Hurricane is literally a 1:1 clone of Traffic Monsoon.
Traffic Hurricane affiliates invest $50 on the promise of a $55 ROI, which is paid out of subsequently invested funds.
Affiliates who generate new invested funds via recruitment are paid 10% of the funds recruited affiliates invest.
Tying all of this together are pseudo-compliance advertising credits, which the SEC recently reaffirmed are irrelevant when newly invested funds are being used to pay off existing investors.
Following the regulatory fallout of Traffic Monsoon, a number of scammers who had previously been enjoying a regular income are now looking to continue scamming their victims.
Enter sites like Traffic Monsoon Plus and Traffic Hurricane.
Run by those who have already stolen millions from Traffic Monsoon victims, these shameless hucksters are positioning themselves for a repeat performance.
Marketing from former Traffic Monsoon affiliates suggests Traffic Hurricane may have been set up using the Traffic Monsoon affiliate database.
Considering the database now belongs to the Traffic Monsoon Receiver, who obviously didn’t authorize Ernie Ganz to use it to create a new scam, the Traffic Hurricane website might be subject to seizure.
When it was shut down, Traffic Monsoon had generated a ROI liability of over $812.35 million.
With only $207 million having been invested into the scheme and much of that already paid out to top investors such as James and Ganz (right), there is no way known Traffic Monsoon could have met its ROI obligations.
Not without creating even more of a ROI liability, which only emphasizes the flawed mathematics behind a Ponzi scheme.
Traffic Hurricane will play out no differently to Traffic Monsoon, with the added bonus of reload scams never being as successful as their original iterations.
Once the veneer of illusion has been peeled back and the reality behind such schemes exposed for what it is, serial scammers are typically only able to dupe a small percentage of the original affiliate-base.
What is interesting is that TrafficMonsoon.plus and TrafficHurricanne.plus use the same IP address.
But there will also be a Traffic True coming soon that will use the same business model as TM but according to Alex Castillo, and I quote:
Alex, there are so many things wrong with your statement, but I’ll leave that to your attorneys to explain it to you.
I can hardly wait to see who else wants to jump on the bandwagon to try and replace TM. Some never learn.
We all are forgetting who made trafficmonsoon big? it was Paypal, No way TM would have gone big no way! The key was Paypal 🙂
i lost $13.7 worth of disputes and won $4.2k of disputes, Paypal are also crooks scammers.
I want my remainder money back otherwise i will never forgive you Charles and his new beloved gold digger.
It would be interesting to see what would happen if one of the new ones had an ISP outside of USA. Some might take it further and bar anyone in USA.
What would happen John? It would fail sooner or later because all ponzi systems fail.
If you’re interested in finding more proof TrafficHurricane is actually a cloned version of TrafficMonsoon and that Charles gave the database and website to be installed on TrafficHurricane, have a read here:
PayPal doesn’t have your seed money anymore, the receiver does. Well, what’s left of it that wasn’t stolen by Charles and his pimp leaders.
PayPal and the SEC’s actions have been to stop a scammer running a Ponzi, and to recover as much money as possible to give back to you.
You’re bashing the wrong people. Charles is the thief with a past.
You obviously haven’t read the SEC complaint.
If you had, you’d realize Paypal and Chase Bank are required by law to report suspicious transactions to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) which is a sub agency of the United States Treasury, which they did.
If you’d also read all of Scovilles’ testimony to the SEC investigators, you’d also know he’s been aware all along that is why the funds were frozen.
Traffic Monsoon plus, Traffic Hurricane.com plus, Traffic Hurricane…..
Will the real spartacus please stand up!
I have to ask, what business were you buying that much advertising from TM?
Did you buy a few adpacks to test to see what kind of results you got, or did you just go full bore into TM with your $13K adpack purchases? What were the results of your advertising with TM?
sunil patel has also confirmed that ernie ganz is the owner of traffic hurricane:
i love the way top affiliates like sharon james and sunil patel are making excuses about ‘raising funds to help TM’ for joining traffic hurricane.
it’s obvious they don’t want the Free ponzi ROI money to stop which is why they are joining TH, but skunks that they are they wont admit it.
sunil patel also reveals that he has contact with top management:
in a video uploaded yesterday, patel asks participants of his ‘revolution day’ not to promote any other opportunity at the brighton pier event.
i guess this means patel will not be promoting traffic hurricane on that day either, unless, unless, unless.. TM and TH are the SAME with charles scoville hiding behind ernie ganz’ skirts.
patel also says something about receiving a ‘phonecall’ the content of which he will reveal at brighton pier. suspense and mystery folks! sunil patel is trying to manufacture a thriller!!
uh, regarding sunil patel’s complaints that FB had blocked him thrice for his ‘musical’ videos, he’s claiming mark zuckerberg emailed him ‘personally’ calling him ‘cheeky’!
so, mark zuckerberg sits around policing the sunil patel’s of the world on facebook ‘personally’?
sounds like some tall tale telling!
how seriously can anyone take such a guy?
About as seriously as one can take those shotgun nostrils and laughably asinine ‘entrepreneurial’ analogies of his.
hence why he should be known as ‘Sinus’ from now on.
my only hope is this matter is resolve shortly without having to wait longer than 12mths. How can SEC not see that this TM is not a Ponzi scheme?
Gotta love double negatives… Oh and don’t get your hopes up. Cleanup Ponzi messes takes years.
Thank Charles Scoville and all the other “leaders” who lied to you.
Why can’t you see how TM was a Ponzi?
It always works out.. Even if you are no longer in your dream of ponzi wealth.
There is no set time line on how long it will take to recover all the stolen funds. As all the “investors” will get some of their seed money refunded to them.
The problem remains is why don’t you people learn to see these things for what they are as I am sure you will be chasing down the next ponzi scheme that comes along.
DO your homework so the SEC doesn’t have to rescue you the next time.
ernie ganz, who had wiped his facebook page clean of any mention of traffic monsoon and traffic hurricane, is now actively promoting traffic hurricane again with videos and hangouts on air.
the temporary lull in the traffic monsoon case while the judge makes her ruling, seems to have given him a false sense of safety.
You assholes don’t know what your talking about, a ponzi is classed as something that requires new funds to pay old funds, traffic monsoon had $200m which is more then enough for everyones payouts.
the only reason the SEC interjected was because charles was asked to transfer the funds into his own account because of fraudulent cheques circulating so if that hadn’t happened then traffic monsoon would still be running.
and regarding traffic hurricane ernie ganz is a straight guy and he’s registered traffic hurricane in the philipenes so no corrupt organisation like SEC or PayPal can touch it, you people need to look at the facts.
As per its own records, Traffic Monsoon generated a ROI liability of $812.35 million.
$207 million isn’t enough to cover $812.35 million in ROI payouts.
clearly stated in their complaint. Traffic Monsoon is a Ponzi scheme and Charles Scoville the scammer running it. Leave the silly conspiracy theories on Facebook.
Boasting about being able to commit financial fraud isn’t exactly a selling point for a business.
Stop investing in Ponzi schemes and get a proper education is basic mathematics.
Except you don’t know how much TM needed to pay out. You try paying 800 million of liability with 200 million of money. Muahahaha. Must be “new math” or “ponzi math”. Typical lame ponzi excuse… speak before you have the facts… the same thing you accuse us of. Go look in a mirror first. Or perhaps you just ignore any “inconvenient truth” that doesn’t fit your narrative, got any “alternative facts” you want to share?
Get a proper education? Did you even join the website and put money i met with charles and i know how he is and ernie so i dont need some dumb haters putting these people down.
if this is corrupt then so is every rev share thats on out there so why arent they shut down then…?
Your failure to detect a scam is on you. People running scams are scammers, regardless of whether you have a hard on for them or not.
And meeting scammers is hardly a substitute for a proper education in basic mathematics. So yes, stop investing in Ponzi scams and go and get yourself an education.
Nobody mentioned corruption except you.
Ask the appropriate regulators. Meanwhile Traffic Monsoon and Traffic Hurricane, by virtue of their business models, are Ponzi schemes.
Traffic hurricane has been running since august and has encountered no problems whatsoever with payments and even the head of payza has been here and soon the website will feature new cards so this will be successful.
obviously certain people hate seeing success because they are naive and ignorant…
will continue to do so as long as people pump money into it. That’s how a Ponzi scheme works.
When affiliate recruitment dies off and it collapses, you all get to sit around claiming you had no idea Traffic Hurricane was a Ponzi scheme.
None of which has anything to do with Traffic Hurricane using newly invested funds to pay off existing investors, making it a Ponzi scheme.
How about you put down your copy of Tired Ponzi cliche excuses 101 and y’know, address the fact that Traffic Hurricane is a scam?
ok so basically every business is a ponzi then because they require people to put money in….
Nope. Just the ones that use newly invested funds to pay off existing investors.
no it didn’t and scoville admitted it in the SECOND SEC interview. Ever wonder what happened in the first interview that he says nothing about?
Nope. Knowing the perps personally just puts you that much closer to the scam, when you can’t see the forest for the trees. It also proves you’re just shallow and base your decisions on perceptions rather than facts.
Knowing the perps personally don’t mean jack. Ever seen Paul Burks of Zeek Rewards? Real grandpa-ly and all. Got 17 YEARS in Federal Prison for his leadership of the scam.
Scovie’s scam is about 1 quarter of that. Figure Scovie’ll get at least 4 years? Muahahahaha.
Sunil “I’m one of the top revenue share leaders in the world yeah?” Patel having trouble accessing stolen funds in Traffic Hurricane.
That sound in the background adds to the fun.
So yeah he worked hard to rob more people of funds and suddenly he can’t get access. Poor guy.
Oh well on to the next scam right Sunil?
I absolutely love it! What a loser Sunil is!
in a video released a few days back, patel had lambasted charles scoville for ruining his life and had said that if he had known that traffic monsoon had no outside revenue, he would never have joined it. [later he said that video was fake]
now, here he is, ‘earning’ thousands of dollars in traffic monsoons clone ie traffic hurricane! so, wheres the revenue coming from patel? or are you going to call this video fake now?
this guy is a smouldering mess of silly lies, i don’t think he’s intelligent enough to see how idiotic he is!
Patel just dropped a 2 hour video, something about launching his own “Traffic Integrity” opportunity.
2 hours… FML.
i decided wtf let me fml, and sat through patel’s wandering meandering nonsense for two [TWO=2] frigging hours! i did zone out now and then, so i may have missed some of his crapfest:
– ernie ganz and david barker are enemy no 1, and patel is going to take down their traffic huricane.
– ganz and barker stole his traffic hurricane earnings and threatened to ‘arrange’ to make him ‘disappear’.
– patel is pissed about the above^^, so he’ll start ‘traffic integrity’ which is a rev share with some products and event management thrown in [he doesn’t explain how it will all work]
– traffic integrity will be registered in the UK and the banking will also be in the UK [clearly patel has a death wish]
– sunil patel, being large hearted, doesn’t want other rev shares or amway or herbalife to fail, just because he’s going to set up the greatest MLM in all of human history [amway,herbalife will be so damn relieved!]
– sunil patel keeps going off camera to play music and re-enters the frame to make some meme inspired quotes [really freaky behavior!]
bottomline of the 2 hour saga is that sunil patel:
– requires urgent psychiatric help
– needs to wear a bro [male bra]
Yeah I eventually sat through it too :(.
He released the same video three times to say the same thing. Definitely needs a condense coach.
That bit in the middle where he spends about five minutes off-camera changing music before he settles on Eye of the Tiger… omg.
Learn what your talking about TM never said investment on the site your a fool putting that kind of shit out.
You bought advertising seen by others in the network marketing business you could get traffic to your business site.
Now you post this shit about anther business that says the same thing buy advertising pack earn from revenues of the company from sales of ad packs sold. THERE IS NO INVESTMENT WITH THESE SITES!!!!!!
(Ozedit: Offtopic derail attempts and abuse removed)
They didn’t have to. Soliciting $50 deposits on the promise of a $55 ROI is an investment opportunity.
Just because you don’t explicitly refer to a duck by name doesn’t mean it’s not a duck.
The advertising was worthless. It was a closed-loop network with no legitimate non-affiliate advertisers.
Why do you think all Traffic Monsoon affiliates like yourself are upset? It’s not because you lost your advertising.
I want to thank you for your unbiased review of Traffic Hurricane. Can I ask you to review this company again, with a greater understanding of what is ‘promised’ and what is really on offer at Traffic Hurricane.
There is now a UK division and my belief is that these blogs hold a lot of weight and are giving people an inaccurate review of the business we see now in 2017. thank you.
P.S please contact me if I can be of any assistance to the revised review
Instead of doing the Ponzi dance, why don’t you just tell us if newly invested funds are still being used to pay off existing investors.
Yup, still a Ponzi scheme. Now with added pseudo-compliance BS.
According to Frank Calabro Jr, Traffic Hurricane is no longer paying.
