U-Mind Space provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.

The U-Mind Space website domain (“u-mind.space”) was registered on August 9th, 2016. Kevin Lee (right) is listed as the owner, with an address in the US state of California also provided.

The address featured on the domain differs from the Californian address provided on the U-Mind Space website.

The domain address is a residential property in La Canada. The website address belongs to Regus and is virtual in nature.

Further research reveals the U-Mind Space domain address appears to belong to Lee (family home).

Owing to the generic nature of Lee’s name and language barriers (Lee is fluent in Korean), I was unable to put together an MLM history.

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.

U-Mind Space Products

U-Mind Space has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market U-Mind Space affiliate membership itself.

Bundled with U-Mind Space affiliate membership is access to a bitcoin based e-commerce mobile app.

The app also has various social communication features.

The U-Mind Space Compensation Plan

U-Mind Space affiliates sign up and pay a fee. Commissions are paid when they recruit others who do the same.

In total there are three U-Mind Space affiliate membership options to choose from:

  • U-Mind Royal – $2000
  • U-Mind Noble – $1000 plus $100 a month
  • U-Mind Prestige – $10 a month

Residual Recruitment Commissions (binary)

A binary compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a binary team, split into two sides (left and right):

The first level of the binary team houses two positions. The second level of the binary team is generated by splitting these first two positions into another two positions each (4 positions).

Subsequent levels of the binary team are generated as required, with each new level housing twice as many positions as the previous level.

Positions in the binary team are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of affiliates. Note that there is no limit to how deep a binary team can grow.

At the end of each day, U-Mind Space tally up new affiliate fee volume on both sides of the binary team.

An affiliate is paid 20% of matched volume, with unmatched volume on the stronger side carried over for the next day.

Residual Recruitment Commissions (unilevel)

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.

Commissions are paid at a rate of 1% of affiliate fees paid by affiliates recruited into the unilevel team.

  • U-Mind Noble and U-Mind Prestige affiliates earn on seven unilevel levels
  • U-Mind Royal affiliates earn on ten unilevel levels

There’s also something called a “recommendation tree”, which appears to be another level based bonus:

  • first generation recommendation tree bonus = 10%
  • second generation recommendation tree bonus = 5%
  • third generation recommendation tree bonus = 3%
  • fourth generation recommendation tree bonus = 2%

A definition of the recommendation tree is not provided in the U-Mind Space compensation plan.

U-Mind Bonus Pools

U-Mind Space reward ranked affiliates with a share in one of three bonus pools:

  • U-Mind Pool – all affiliates receive a share in 1% of collected company-wide affiliate membership fees
  • Count U-Mind Pool – Count ranked U-Mind Space affiliates receive a share of 2% of collected company-wide affiliate fees
  • Duke U-Mind Pool – Duke ranked U-Mind Space affiliates receive a share of 5% of collected company-wide affiliate fees

To qualify as a Count a U-Mind Space affiliate must have at least one hundred affiliates in their downline.

To qualify as a Duke a U-Mind Space affiliate must have at least one thousand affiliates in their downline.

Joining U-Mind Space

U-Mind Space affiliate membership is available in three options:

  • U-Mind Royal – $2000
  • U-Mind Noble – $1000 plus $100 a month
  • U-Mind Prestige – $10 a month


On their website, U-Mind Space describe themselves as a

Global Society of the members of all the Like-Minded Communities who collectively market, use & share the best product on earth.

The U-Mind Space website has a lot of mumbo-jumbo about artificial intelligence, which seems to be their way of marketing the app.

Here’s an example:

Major aspects of Psychology and Statistics are already in place and the upgrades for Image Recognition & Natural Language Processing have been in progress, as well as the digitalization of the Oriental Academic Heritage, including Physiognomy and I Ching.

Buggered if I know what any of that means, but the app itself has nothing to do with the U-Mind Space MLM opportunity.

U-Mind Space’s business model is straight pyramid recruitment with a layer of blatant securities fraud.

U-Mind Space affiliates sign up, pay a fee and are paid to recruit others who do the same.

The U-Mind Space app is available for free to U-Mind Commoner members, so affiliates are obviously not paying for access to it.

The only reason fees are paid appears to be to fund recruitment commissions, the payment of which makes U-Mind Space a pyramid scheme.

On the U-Mind Space website one can also find an “investment opportunity agreement”, which is provided to U-Mind Royal affiliates (invest $2000).

As per the agreement (click to enlarge), U-Mind Royal affiliates are given between 500 and 1000 “common stocks of the Company”.

“The Company” identified at the bottom of the agreement is U-Mind Space, Inc.

A search of the SEC’s Edgar database turns up nothing for “u-mind”, “u mind” or any derivatives. This means neither U-Mind Space or Kevin Lee are authorized to make a securities offering in the US.

Quite obviously the U-Mind Space investor agreement is a securities offering, which appears to be a case of securities fraud.

And it gets better…

The ruse behind the investment opportunity seems to be e-commerce activity through the U-Mind Space app.

As per the U-Mind Space website,

All the monetary transactions in U-Mind Space Should be through the BitCoin.

Using BitCoin as the only currency removes all the hassle & problems in the international Transactions for Global Expansion.

In addition to e-commerce transactions, this includes payment of U-Mind Space affiliate membership fees.

So uh what? Kevin Lee is going to run an illegal investment opportunity from California, and hope the use of bitcoin throws off the SEC?

Yeah, this probably isn’t going to end well.

As with all pyramid schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies off U-Mind Space will collapse.

The investor agreement states that stock will be issued “1 year from the date of the invest amount received by the company”.

Alexa traffic estimates suggest U-Mind Space launched around late March. I’d be very surprised if U-Mind Space is still around this time next year.

Even if the SEC don’t move to shut Lee down, U-Mind Space affiliate recruitment is likely to drop off before March, 2018 (the presentation of the opportunity on the U-Mind Space website is terrible).

According to the investor agreement,

it is not a loan agreement, so that, this note doesn’t have any cash value.

The bottom line?

Once U-Mind Space inevitably collapses, anyone who hasn’t recouped their fees via recruitment will only have a worthless bit of paper to show for it.
