Movii Technology Review: Collapsed “watch trailers” Ponzi reboot
Movii Technology, not to be confused with Colombian payment app “Movii”, is an MLM company that falsely represents it has been around since 2018.
Founded in year 2018, Movii Technology was established in right in the center of Los Angeles, California.
Movii Technology operates from two known website domains:
- movii2u.com – privately registered on August 24th, 2022.
- movii2u.net – privately registered on September 27th, 2022 (note Movii runs off the subdomain “movii.movii2u.net”)
From these registrations we can confirm Movii Technology didn’t exist prior to August 2022.
Movii Technology cites “Joseph McKenzie” as co-founder and Chief Director of the company.
In a marketing video uploaded to Movii Technology’s official YouTube channel last October, McKenzie verbally only cites himself as a Movii spokesperson.
This suggests Movii Technology may have taken some liberties.
Naturally “Joseph McKenzie” doesn’t exist. I wasn’t able to pin down a name but can confirm he’s an actor from the UK:
As to who is actually running Movii Technology, we can piece together some history from the company’s official FaceBook page:
Movii Technology began as MoviiTech Asia in December 2021. By April 2022 MoviiTech Asia had attracted the attention of authorities, leading to an arrest in Singapore.
In an island-wide anti-scam enforcement operation conducted on 1 and 5 April 2022, the Commercial Affairs Department arrested a 29-year-old man for his suspected involvement in Ponzi-like job scams that involved the earning of commission by viewing movie trailers.
On 30 March 2022, the Police received information on an emerging job scam platform (‘Moviitech’).
During the operation, officers from the Commercial Affairs Department mounted simultaneous island-wide operations and arrested the man, and identified another three men, aged between 18 and 41, who are currently assisting with investigations for their suspected involvement in the scams.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the bogus company was believed to be running Ponzi-like schemes using Multi-level Marketing strategies.
The four men are believed to have facilitated the schemes by advertising and recruiting potential job seekers as members, and providing bank accounts to facilitate the movement of illicit funds.
Police investigations are ongoing.
I wasn’t able to find a follow up on the MoviiTech arrest. I believe the arrested suspect and cooperating suspects were MoviiTech promoters, as opposed to operators of the scam.
In any event, MoviiTech has been rebooted as Movii Technology. And whoever is running Movii Technology is doing so from Malaysia and the UAE.
The UAE is guaranteed to be Dubai, the MLM crime capital of the world.
BehindMLM’s guidelines for Dubai are:
- If someone lives in Dubai and approaches you about an MLM opportunity, they’re trying to scam you.
- If an MLM company is based out of or represents it has ties to Dubai, it’s a scam.
If you want to know specifically how this applies to Movii Technology, read on for a full review. [Continue reading…]

Second Family First Life robocall fraud lawsuit filed in Michigan
A second lawsuit pertaining to robocall fraud has been filed against Family First Life in Michigan.
Plaintiff Mark Dobronski initially filed suit against Family First Life and several defendants on August 31st, 2022.
Dobronski originally secured an Entry of Default on Family First Life in November 2022.

On February 22nd, Dobronski filed an Amended Complaint. [Continue reading…]
Residual Review: Russian crypto Ponzi cycler
Residual fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.
In fact as I write this, Residual’s website is nothing more than an affiliate signup/login form.
Residual’s website domain (“residual.energy”), was privately registered on February 26th, 2023.
Official Residual marketing material features Russian:
This strongly suggests whoever is behind Residual has ties to Russia and/or eastern Europe.
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. [Continue reading…]
