Piggy Bank provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.
The Piggy Bank website domain (“piggy-bank.io”) was privately registered on June 2nd, 2017.
Despite this, Piggy Bank claim its “history … goes back to the year 2000”.
Alexa traffic estimates reveal Piggy Bank in its current incarnation launched a few weeks ago in early January.
A UK incorporation corresponding to “Piggy B. Limited” is provided on the Piggy Bank website.
Piggy B. Limited was incorporated through a residential address in London on June 6th, a few days after the Piggy Bank website domain was registered.
Bruce Whatley is listed as the sole Director of the company and presumed not to exist.
UK incorporation is dirt cheap and for the most part unregulated. It is a favorite for scammers looking to incorporate dodgy companies.
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.
