Traffic Powerline Ponzi collapses, ROI payments exceed deposits
No matter how many times it’s denied, the fundamental truth behind MLM underbelly schemes is that you can’t pay out more than is paid in.
Here at BehindMLM we routinely review the latest offerings from the MLM underbelly. When one of our reviews points out the obvious, often this doesn’t go down well with a company owner.
One of the more recent examples of this taking place was Pearse Donnelly’s reaction to BehindMLM’s Traffic Powerline review.
Pearse Donnelly first appeared on BehindMLM’s radar in 2015 as the admin behind Mo Brabus.
Mo Brabus combined matrix cycler commissions with a $5 in, $6 out Ponzi business model. The scam collapsed in late 2016, with Donnelly acknowledging the Ponzi model was “fundamentally flawed”.
Rather than hang up his Ponzi boots however, Donnelly doubled down and announced the launch of Traffic Powerline.
The premise of Traffic Powerline was simple, affiliates invested funds on the promise of a ROI equal to more than they invested.
Unfortunately the ROI was funded by subsequent investments, making Traffic Powerline another Ponzi scheme.
When BehindMLM pointed this out, Donnelly exploded with a torrential flood of abuse and threats against the website.
YOUR REVIEW IS TOTAL BULLSHIT ON TRAFFIC POWERLINE. I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW YOU ARE SO SURE OF YOUR FINDINGS WHEN NOT EVEN OUR MEMBERS KNOW OUR FINAL BUSINESS MODEL YET.
I am fucking serious OZ do not fuck with me take down the fucking pages or I will make it my little project to fuck your site up.
That was back in September, shortly after the Traffic Powerline prelaunch announcement.
In an email sent out to Traffic Powerline affiliates sometime in the last twenty-four hours, Donnelly has since announced he’s closing Traffic Powerline.
You already know why…
This email is not easy to write but unfortunately it needs to be done, I am going to give it to you straight, no bells or whistles just cold hard facts.
The TPL Platform is closing effective immediately.
In the last 60 day’s we have taken $146,276.08 in deposits and sales and had $326,243.41 in commissions and withdrawals go out.
Also In the last 90 day’s only 119 new active members have registered on the platform.
Everyone is busy doing other things it seems and has little, to no interest in the success of the TPL platform.
It has come down to a simple case of maths unfortunately and we cannot go on any longer.
Turns out slapping a new name on a “fundamentally flawed” business model doesn’t address the fact that it’s “fundamentally flawed”.
We put 110% into making this work with little success, in a last attempt to breath some life back into the platform we introduced the Tri Matrix System and it has not had the desired effect, in fact less than 300 members activated their Matrix positions.
I have come to realise that if you build a platform where people can earn by doing little to nothing then that is exactly what you will get, little to no effort.
The website will remain live to allow you all to access the digital product library but other than that TPL is closed. The support and tech team have also been let go, so there will be no reply to support tickets.
We really wish things had been different but unfortunately they are not and the reality is we are finished despite having made our very best efforts.
All deposits from new members in the last 14 days will be refunded in line with our terms and conditions and Matrix subscriptions will also be refunded. Please allow 2 weeks for this to be completed.
We wish you every success for the future in whatever you decide to do.
Traffic Powerline affiliates who invested outside of the last two weeks appear to have no option but to take a loss.
How much Pearse Donnelly personally pocketed from Mo Brabus and Traffic Powerline has not is not likely to ever be disclosed.
Well, at least Pearse was able to set a record in 2016 as being the only admin to have 2 failed Ponzi’s within six months in the same year.
Can’t wait to see what he has cooked up for 2017, and we all know he will try again. It’s all he knows how to do.
I remember him saying his method couldn’t be stalled. It was mathematicaly sound. He had it all figured out and covered by dividing funds into micro payments.
His video explained it in detail. Along with his front end retail services.
It just couldn’t work.
I guess he showed us all.
I remember before he launched powerline he said he had funds in reserve he would not dip into. So I can only suppose he did the same for powerline.
Can anyone explain how in his own words explain how he “paid out” more than he took in?
Pearse probably used funds tied to Mo Brabus and pulled the plug when he realized he’d burn through all of it with nothing to show.
Gee… who wouldda thunk that?
Guess that eliminates every “business” model that guys like this can come up with.
Wow he actually learned that a ponzi no matter what you call it is unsustainable because its exactly the same model? Clever guy 😛
This has nothing to do with his way of promoting a method of pouring money into a bottomless pit and do nothing, then expect a return.
Then he has the nerve to blame his members for its failure. It failed the day it launched.
Heres some advice to Pearse for 2017. Stop doing ponzis and actually do something with substance unless you want to end up like Scoville, Costa and the AdsPayDaily owner (i forget the name).
You can make money online but the so-called shortcuts are where you are making your mistakes.
You have to remember that all these admins lie through their teeth. What they say versus what is real are always two different things.
His claim that he paid out $326,243.41 while on taking in $146,276.08 was designed to keep people from rushing to file complaints against him for his Ponzi.
The notion that Pearse (or any ponzi owner) tipped in $180 grand of his own money or had outside sources of income of that size is beyond nonsensical.
Only a couple of weeks ago he put out a youtube video of him driving to see a forex trader.
The idea, as far as I remember, was that the forex income would work as a kind of back up for TPL income. Can’t find the video now, maybe it was taken down.
This guy thinks it is now safe to scam again, Some crypto trading deal, offering up to 60% per month. Facebook page is Cryptopians.
He had a video up talking about doing an ICO and launching on stock market. What a plonker.
Watch out for Pearse Crypto Donnelly as he now calls himself.
