BitCryptoGame Review: 200% ROI bitcoin investment fraud

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

BitCryptoGame’s website domain (“”) was privately registered on June 5th, 2019.

Most of BitCryptoGame’s marketing material is in Spanish.

Although not conclusive, this suggests that whoever is running the company is from Spain or a Spanish-speaking country.

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…]

Maskcara Review: Beauty blogger launches MLM makeup company

Maskcara was founded in 2013 and operates in the personal care MLM niche.

The company is based out of Utah and headed up by founder Cara Brook.

Brook (right) is cited as a “beauty blogger/makeup artist”.

Despite her origins in social media however, it seems of late Brook’s social media presence has been neglected.

Brook’s original blog, Maskcara, hasn’t been updated since June 2017. The official Maskcara YouTube channel’s last video was uploaded seven months ago.

Brook is still relatively active on Instagram, having posted fifteen photos this year.

Maskcara’s official Facebook page is also regularly updated with content.

Mind you I’m not having a go at her, it’s just that social media is the only reference point I have to gauge how active Brook is.

I’m unaware of Brook having any MLM corporate experience prior to founding Maskcara.

A 2014 New York Times article states that prior to Maskcara (the company), Brook was selling “her own Maskcara-branded” makeup through her website.

The line, Ms. Brook said, is the fulfillment of a childhood dream that would not be possible without the support of her readers.

“They’re so intelligent, down to earth and sweet,” she said.

She was so broke when she started writing, she said, her early blog posts were based on samples of products she got from Sephora on walks with her young son.

“I never bought anything, but they’d give me samples of everything,” she said.

It appears Maskcara is the natural evolution of Brook’s marketing efforts, into a fully-fledged business opportunity.

Midasama Review: Malaysian forex trading Ponzi scheme

Midasama provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.

Midasama’s website domain (“”) was first registered back in 2016.

The domain registration was last updated on May 28th, 2019.

The Midasama domain registration itself is private, providing no ownership information.

Further research reveals “Morgan Matthews” cited as a “business director” and “associate partner” of Midasama.

Naturally there’s no information about Matthews outside of Midasama’s own marketing material.

Before Matthews, Midasama were using some guy they named “Edward Fox” to promote the company.

The prop laptop really demonstrates Fox’s commitment to trading directing.

As far as I can tell, Midasama only trots Morgan Matthews out for promotional events.

The two events I came across were “strategic partnerships” with Daweda and StarWealth.

Daweda is a Cyprus shell company. According to Alexa, there is little to no traffic to Daweda’s website.

Daweda’s current website appears to have gone live on or around mid 2018.

Traffic to StarWealth’s website is so low Alexa doesn’t even rank it. It appears to be another shell company, this time based out of Hong Kong.

It’s worth noting that StarWealth’s website domain was registered within a a month and a half of Daweda’s in 2017.

At the time of publication Alexa pegs 84% of traffic to Midasama’s website as originating out of Malaysia.

It is highly likely that whoever is actually running Midasama is based out of Malaysia itself.

Midasama’s website defaults to Chinese, so it appears this is another instance of random white guys being paid to front a dodgy Asian MLM company.

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…]

LiquidFuel Review: Securities fraud crypto trading scheme

LiquidFuel provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.

In fact as I write this, LiquidFuel’s public facing website is little more than an affiliate login page.

LiquidFuel’s website domain (“”) was privately registered on July 9th, 2018.

LiquidFuel’s EULA suggests the company is a “licensee” of LFXCR International, SRL.

No information about LFXCR International is provided. Nor does the company have a digital footprint.

Presumably LFXCR International is a recently set up shell company, incorporated in a dodgy jurisdiction.

LiquidFuel’s EULA supports this, as it goes on to state;

This agreement and any and all claims arising under this agreement shall be governed by the laws of Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is a scam-friendly jurisdiction with little to no regulation.

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…]

Bellame Review: Hydrating personal care with retail potential

Bellame was founded in 2016 and operates in the personal care MLM niche.

Bellame appears to be based out of California, although the company provides a virtual mailbox address on its website.

Heading up Bellame are co-founders Melissa and Scott Thompson (right).

According to a March 2017 press-release, the Thompsons have ‘45 years of combined expertise in the beauty and digital marketing‘ industries.

According to her LinkedIn profile, started her MLM career with Avon in 1999.

In 2007 she switched over to Belcorp and was with them for ten months.

Thompson left the personal care MLM niche in 2000. She joined Shaklee, a nutritional supplement opportunity, and promoted them for almost three years.

In late 2010 Thompson returned to the personal care MLM niche and Avon.

She remained an Avon distributor until July 2014, wherein she joined Mana.

In 2015 Thompson signed up with Stella and Dot. In 2016 Thompson changed gears again and worked as Chief Marketing Officer for Astoria Company.

Scott Thompson founded Astoria Company in 2010. He runs the lead generation marketing company as CEO.

That brings us to the launch of Bellame in December, 2017.

Melissa Thompson serves as Bellame’s CEO. Scott Thompson is the company’s Chairman and President.
