    It should be blatantly obvious that sending money to anonymous places on the web is a recipe for disaster, whether the promoter is known or not. History is riddled with businesspeople well respected in their communities that ending up running scams, Bernie Madoff comes to mind. Many of the top promoters in USI Tech have openly peddled scams for years, why should admin bother hiding? No one short of the SEC is going to Portugal or Switzerland to recover money, and as with MAP updates will become fewer and further in between.

    Maybe more car pictures will make it all better?

    I'm no fan of the money management industry due to excessive fees. That notwithstanding after victims get back on their feet, they should stop turning to Facebook for financial freedom. Deal only with licensed firms and individuals where multiple checks and balances exist to protect them from such blatant fraud. That said, less is more and the further folks get away from having others near their money IMO remains the safest path.

    I'm nostalgic for the past ponzis of 10-15 years ago with their great and vague backstories. Those were the ones that paid real well and for longer than a couple of months before the inevitable exit scam when the money stopped coming in. The pioneering ponzi scams that had some ingenuity to them like Freeland Opps(FLO)investment scheme with a twisted libertarian slant, StudioTraffic the first major autosurf ponzi, doubler money cyclers, airplane cycler scams like Providence, even PIPS, though PIPS was so ridiculous that you had to be incredibly stupid to believe it to be even 1% legit, EarnByLending where you "loan" your money and get paid better than any loan shark(or venture capitalist) could dream of....these ponzis had something with a shred of originality that sparked interest to get the money rolling in and paying out. Then it became all "trusted admin" and "team of experienced forex traders" and just flat-out BORING! There has been a few re-hashed ponzi ideas inspired by those in the past that did well like your 12DP's and Zeek and TM and a few others, but mostly it's just scams that replace "forex" with "bitcoin" and hope to hit lightning in a bottle by being noticed quickly when they first start and people are shouting about how they are getting paid.

    The getting paid part took over anything else like a made-up story or bogus plan, plus all the admins have become known and with that the fact that they have history of other scams, either as admin or promoter. So, it's "hey, you're getting paid, don't worry about it. Doing this because I want the average person to get rich because I know what it's like to struggle and blah blah blah" while FB groups and YT became somewhat a re-hash of what MMG and TG were. What a sorry mess.

    "Despite the keeping up of appearances and reassurances by USI-Tech investors outside of the US (coughcough “Global Leader” Sharon James), it appears USI-Tech has been inundated with withdrawal requests.

    Trotting out the old “we’re too big for legitimate payment processors” routine, USI-Tech has announced withdrawal delays."

    Here ya go, Nuk, a couple of oldies but goodies:



    "We're too big for any of the payment processors / exchanges

    "We've developed our own bank / wallet / processor"

    "DEPOSITS and withdrawals are now processed using our solution"

    Like, sure, people are still depositing despite what's happened.

    R--I--I--I--G--H--T, sure they are.

    OK Frankie:

    "We are taking over USI-Tech"

    And that was about as useful as a Franke Calabro recommended "opportunity"

    I am just wondering. You lot on this page spend time fighting against this Ponzi schemes and the idiots that join them. And you suffer abuse and ridicule until the scheme collapses.

    Are you ever tempted to join one and make money of this idiots ? Because letís face it, they will give the money away anyway.

    1) Abuse and ridicule from ponzi is hardly threatening. In fact, most of it is downright funny, ESPECIALLY when you know you can't lose the "fight"

    2) Personally, not for a second. a) Because it's illegal b) because it is stealing from somebody else, who probably doesn't know what they're participating in is a fraud c) Unless you're on the "inside" i.e. the top 2% or 3% there is no guarantee you'll be in profit

    3) Everyone needs a hobby. This is one of mine and it sure beats collecting little bits of sticky paper from envelopes or impaling butterflies on boards under glass.

    As LRM says, scambusting is a bit of a hobby. I also like reading. And needlework.

    Join a scheme? Nope, never been tempted. I'd never even heard of things like this until some people I knew got interested in Banners Broker about 5 or 6 years ago - one actually joined - but I knew it was rubbish right from the start!

    From what I can see, all these schemes pay out - at first. They have to, to induce people to join. But unless you are one of the main players, or on the inside, the chances of making money are slim to non-existant. Personally, I couldn't join something that meant I could make money if other people lost theirs. It wouldn't feel right. And besides, I'm terribly law abiding.

    After the implosion is probably the worst for me, that's when the sun shines on how feckless much of this lot really is. Really though those people will never be the target audience benefiting from a thread like this pre-crash. If 5-6 of the 7 warning signs for a Ponzi are present https://www.sec.gov/fast-answers/answersponzihtm.html and someone says yeah but maybe, they have too much idiot in the tank. After the tank has been drained some will filter over to see what they could have done differently.

    Temped to take money from people that will blow it anyway, certainly.

    I don't think though unless you are an anonymous admin that can slip away in the night it is all that easy. Let's say 99% lose in MLM after time and expenses, why should Ponzi math be any different?
    The top recruiters for all their bluster have to put in long hours on social media keeping up appearances. Sure some claim they have created automated funnels making sign-ups a breeze, why again are they on social media?

    The top promoters seem to create a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_of_personality and apple polishers continue to worship them even after obvious theft. I don't think this is all that easy or everyone would be the popular kid at school. Of course some is an illusion since negative nellies are purged from the ranks, ugh more hassle. And can you imagine some of the things said behind the scenes when victims wake up to the fact they were played?

    Even for people without a moral compass, easy money odds are better laid on real work.

    The best thing she could do is stay MUM, but thankfully she won't. From the sounds of tings there is a possibility that some of the major pimps in the UK may be facing a class action lawsuit. We'll have to wait and see if it happens, but it sure would be great if it did.
