WeWe Global Review: WEWEX Ponzi points scheme

I was disappointed to learn WeWe Global wasn’t a nod to urine aficionados around the world.

Instead the company’s name is an acronym for “World Enhanced Wealth Ecosystem Global”. I much prefer WeWe Global though so we’ll stick with that.

WeWe Global provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.

WeWe Global’s website domain (“”) was registered in January 2020.

The owner of the domain is “DigiTech Service LTD”, through an incomplete address in the British Virgin Islands.

In the FAQ section of WeWe Global’s website, the company claims it is owned by¬†“WEWE-DAO and company “DIGITECH SERVICES LTD” BVI”.

The British Virgin Islands is a scam-friendly jurisdiction with no active regulation of MLM related fraud.

For this reason you should avoid any MLM company incorporated or representing it is incorporated there.

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…]

Team Travel MVP Review: Discount sports team travel?

Team Travel MVP provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.

Team Travel MVP’s website domain (“”) was initially registered in March 2019.

The private registration was last updated on March 10th, 2021.

Further research reveals Tony Verran citing himself as CEO of Team Travel MVP on LinkedIn.

According to his profile, Verran is based out of California. This syncs with a corporate suite address in California provided on Team Travel MVP’s website.

Verran’s LinkedIn profile cites him as CEO of Team Travel MVP since July 2016.

I believe Team Travel MVP is a reboot of My Dream Sports Biz, a collapsed MLM company launched on or around 2011.

Affiliate marketing copy credits Verran as the creator and CEO of My Dream Sports Biz.

I wasn’t able to ascertain whether Verran had any other MLM experience. Why his corporate bio isn’t provided on Team Travel MVP’s website is unclear.

Read on for a full review of Team Travel MVP’s MLM opportunity. [Continue reading…]
