NuMedia Review: TVizion piracy continues through shell company

TVizion was a pirated streaming service offered through 247 SmartLife.A few months ago Dish Network sued 247 SmartLife, TVizion and owner Ferras Jim Pshehalouk for copyright infringement.
In response to the lawsuit, Pshehalouk took down the TVizion website. The 247 Smartlife website is still up but traffic wise is pretty much dead.
Rather than defend the Dish Network lawsuit, Pshehalouk just ignored it.
In late July default was entered against 247 SmartLife, TVizion and Pshehalouk, with damages yet to be determined.
In the meantime, 247 Smartlife affiliates were told TVizion had been acquired by NuMedia for around $220 million.
Other than claiming to be a “Nevis corporation”,…

Cellis Review: Valentus “healthy coffee” spinoff?

Cellis operate in the nutritional supplement MLM niche and are based out of Texas in the US.The company is headed up by Cellis’ Founder and CEO, Korey Johnson.
It’s worth noting that Johnson (right) resides in North Carolina, which is presumably where Cellis is actually operated from.
As per Johnson’s Cellis corporate bio, he has ‘29 years in industry with high level field leadership experience‘ and has been a ‘6-figure earner in multiple companies‘.
Two MLM companies I was able to tie Korey too were Waiora (circa 2010) and more recently, Valentus (2017).
Johnson appears to have left Valentus in late 2017 or early 2018,…

NuYugen Review: CBD and cannabinoid herbal blends

The NuYugen website contains no information about who owns or runs the company.In fact, as I write this NuYugen are expecting people to sign up without disclosing any information about what it is they’re signing up to.
Further research reveals NuYugen marketing material identifying Richard Sharp as CEO of the company.
Why executive information, along with at least basic product info, is not provided on the NuYugen website is unclear.
As far as I can tell, Richard Sharp (right) has no prior MLM executive experience.
Sharp’s NuYugen corporate bio identifies him as editor of “The Hemp News” website and an ‘authority on hemp-derived CBD‘.
Note that as…

Emane Trade Review: Brazilian bitcoin 40% a month Ponzi scheme

Emane Trade provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.The Emane Trade website domain (“emanetrade.com”) was privately registered on January 31st, 2018.
Further research reveals Emane Trade citing Carlos Barbosa as CEO and President of the company on their official Facebook profile.
Emane Trade and Barbosa (right) appear to be based out of Brazil, with Brazilians making up the company’s primary marketing demographic.
At the time of publication Alexa estimate 100% of traffic to the Emane Trade website as originates out of Brazil.
Possibly due to language-barriers, I was unable to put together an MLM history on Barbosa.

VIP Mining operates in the cryptocurrency MLM niche. On the VIP Mining website, Luis Ortega is cited as founder of the company.Ortega recently popped up on BehindMLM’s radar as the founder of Now Mining.
Now Mining offered unregistered security investment contracts, purportedly through partnership with Genesis Mining.
Alexa traffic estimates for the Now Mining website suggest the scheme collapsed shortly after launch.
Now Mining investors who were promised a ROI over 280 days appear to have lost their money.
Despite Now Mining collapsing and causing widespread losses, Luis Ortega (right) describes himself as ‘a successful leader, a technology visionary and a pioneer in the cryptocurrency…

My Paying Tree Review: $1 to $50 adcredit Ponzi scheme

My Paying Tree provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.The My Paying Tree website domain (“mypayingtree.com”) was privately registered on May 3rd, 2017.
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.
My Paying Tree Products
My Paying Tree has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market My Paying Tree affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up, My Paying Tree affiliates are able to invest in “adpacks”.
Bundled with each adpack investment are adcredits, which can be used…

Akyoh Review: AladinCoin Ponzi reboot with Avana Coin

Akyoh claim to be a “technology investment company which based in Cyprus (EU)”.Beyond that statement however there is no evidence of Akyoh having any business operations in Cyprus. It’s also worth noting that Cyprus is a known jurisdiction for having little to no MLM regulation.
Incorporation of an MLM company in Cyprus is typically done when a company can’t legitimately incorporate itself in a reputable jurisdiction.
Cited as President of Akyoh on their website is Christian Lipovec (right).
Up until recently Lipovec was promoting the AladinCoin Ponzi scheme.
In a Facebook post dated March 17th, Lipovec wrote;
After a few days at the company now on the…

Seven Stars Group Review: Forex trading Ponzi fraud

Seven Stars Group provides no (accurate) information on their website about who owns or runs the company.The Seven Stars Group website domain (“sevenstars.group”) was privately registered on June 15th, 2018.
Despite existing for barely a few months, Seven Stars Group claims it was “founded in 2010” by Mario Rossi, a fictional “American forex trader”.
In an attempt to feign legitimacy, a UK incorporation certificate for “Seven Stars Group LTD” is provided.
UK incorporation is dirt cheap and for the most part unregulated. It is a favorite for scammers looking to incorporate dodgy companies.
It instead far more likely Seven Stars Group is being operated from…

An address in Dubai is provided on the AuLives website. Multiple businesses operate out of the same address however, suggesting the address actually belongs to a virtual office provider.
AuLives has an official corporate YouTube channel, on which there are several marketing videos.
These videos reveal the co-founders of AuLives to be Parwiz Daud and Mansour Tawafi.
Up until very recently, Daud and Tawafi were prominent promoters of the OneCoin Ponzi scheme.

On December 4th, 2017, Ted Nuyten’s Business For Home…
