UEZ Markets Review: AI trading ruse Ponzi scheme
UEZ Markets fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.
UEZ Markets’ website domain (“uezmarkets.com”), was registered back in December 2020. The private registration was last updated on November 25th, 2022.
Through the Wayback machine we learn “uezmarkets.com” was up for sale since 2021.
The domain was eventually purchased by UEZ Markets’ owner(s) in late 2022. It should be noted that UEZ Markets’ domain appears to have been sold along with various social media profiles.
These domain package sales are not uncommon. UEZ Market’s purchased social media profiles creates the illusion that the company, as presented today, is older than it is.
Despite only existing for barely over a month, UEZ Markets falsely claims it has a “5+ year history”.
Further blowing a hole in how long UEZ Markets has been around is the domain “uezmarkets.sc”:
As you can see this is a clone of UEZ Markets’ primary website.
“Uezmarkets.sc” was privately registered on December 19th, 2022. Despite this, the website states;
UEZ Markets Limited was founded and incorporated in the Republic of Seychelles in 2015.
Whether UEZ Markets Seychelles has been set up as a backup for the primary website, or whether it was an intended alternative branding, is unclear.
UEZ Markets marketing material cites “Conor Burns” as founder and CEO of the company.
Marcus Jenssen and Mason Kong are cited as UEZ Markets’ CTO and VP of APAC respectively.
None of these people exist outside of UEZ Markets’ marketing material. This includes social media profiles set up as bogus digital footprints.
A January 13th marketing video on UEZ Markets’ YouTube channel depicts a Boris CEO event held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
UEZ Markets also has an official Bilibili account:
Bilibili is a Chinese YouTube clone.
Putting all of this together, UEZ Markets appears to be run by scammers operating out of south-east Asia.
Based on the Mason Kong actor’s accent and Malaysian event, I’d guess UEZ Markets is being run from Singapore, Malaysia or both countries.
In an attempt at legitimate, UEZ Markets provides shell company details in the Cayman Islands, Switzerland and Australia.
For the purpose of MLM due-diligence, shell company incorporation in any jurisdiction is meaningless.
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.
UEZ Markets’ Products
UEZ Markets has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market UEZ Markets affiliate membership itself.
UEZ Markets’ Compensation Plan
UEZ Markets affiliates invest $1000 or more on the promise of an advertised passive return:
- Flexi Managed Account – 2% to 3% a month
- Term Managed Account – 6% to 8% a month but funds are locked up for 3 months (18% penalty if funds are withdrawn prior to 3 months)
Flexi Managed Account investments are able to be converted into Term Managed account investments “at any point of time”.
At the end of the three months, all Term Managed Account investments are “automatically converted” into Flexi Managed Account investments.
The MLM side of UEZ Markets pays on returns paid to recruited affiliates.
UEZ Affiliate Ranks
There are seven affiliate ranks within UEZ’s compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:
- Member – sign up as a UEZ Markets affiliate
- Supervisor – generate $50,000 in unilevel team investment volume
- Manager – generate $250,000 in unilevel team investment volume and have 3 Supervisors in your downline
- Marketing Manager – generate $1,500,000 in unilevel team investment volume and have 3 Managers in your downline
- Regional Manager – generate $8,000,000 in unilevel team investment volume and have 3 Marketing Managers in your downline
- Director – generate $30,000,000 in unilevel team investment volume and have 3 Regional Managers in your downline
- Global Director – generate $70,000,000 in unilevel team investment volume and have 3 Directors in your downline
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.
For the purpose of rank qualification, investment volume generated on the strongest unilevel team leg is excluded.
Rank-required recruited downline affiliates must also be in separate unilevel team legs.
UEZ Markets pays a ROI match on returns paid to personally recruited affiliates.
- Members earn a 30% ROI match
- Supervisors earn a 50% ROI match
- Managers and higher earn a 100% ROI match
Residual ROI Match
UEZ Markets pays a residual ROI match via a 2×20 matrix.
A 2×20 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them.
These two positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first two positions into another two positions each (4 positions).
Levels three to twenty of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with each new level housing twice as many positions as the previous level.
Note that although a 2×20 matrix has twenty levels, UEZ Markets only pays the residual ROI match on even-numbered matrix levels.
Referral commissions are paid as a percentage of returns paid to affiliates across these twenty levels as follows:
- recruit 1 affiliate and receive a 4% ROI match on level 2
- recruit 2 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2 and 4
- recruit 3 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4 and 6
- recruit 4 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6 and 8
- recruit 5 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10
- recruit 6 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12
- recruit 7 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14
- recruit 8 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16
- recruit 9 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18
- recruit 10 affiliates and receive a 4% ROI match on levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20

- Regional Managers receive a 20% Management Profit Sharing bonus

The Same Ranking and Over Ranking bonuses appear to be paid on returns paid to affiliates at the same or higher rank, starting at Manager.
- Managers and higher receive a 2% Same Ranking Bonus on personally recruited Managers and two additional levels of recruited Managers
- Marketing Managers receive a 2% Over Ranking bonus on personally recruited affiliates at a higher rank and any affiliates they’ve recruited also at a higher rank
Trading Lot Profit Sharing
The Trading Lot Profit Sharing bonus rewards Supervisors and higher for generating $500 in downline investment.
- Supervisors receive $3 per $500 in downline investment generated
- Managers receive $7 per $500 in downline investment generated
- Marketing Managers receive $11 per $500 in downline investment generated
- Regional Managers receive $15 per $500 in downline investment generated

Note that while Trading Lot Profit Sharing is paid on lots of $500, UEZ Markets tracks the bonus per every $1000 invested.

UEZ Markets Conclusion
UEZ Markets’ website is draped in trading jargon. What you won’t find are any details about the company’s executives or its compensation plan.
That’s because, despite representations, UEZ Markets has nothing to do with trading.
With crypto ruses dying out scammers have turned to AI.
This again has nothing to do with UEZ Markets’ MLM opportunity.
UEZ Markets is clearly offering securities through its passive investment opportunity.
This requires registration with financial regulators and filing of audited financial reports.
The only financial regulator UEZ Markets has registered with is the Australian Securities and Investments Commissions (ASIC).
UEZ markets Pty Ltd was registered with ASIC on november 7th, 2022. No financial reports have been filed.
ASIC is hopeless at regulation of securities fraud regulation. For this reason ASIC is a favorite among scammers attempting to appear legitimate.
Best case scenario, ASIC registration covers UEZ Markets soliciting investment from within Australia. It doesn’t cover investment outside of Australia.
UEZ Markets hasn’t been around long enough yet for us to get an accurate picture on which countries they are soliciting investment in.
As it stands, the only verifiable source of revenue entering UEZ Markets is new investment.
Using new investment to pay affiliates a monthly return makes UEZ Markets a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve UEZ Markets of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
