HLBS Network- Crook Review



On the HLBS Network’s website, there is no mention of who owns or controls it. The HLBS s.r.o. footer reveals the company’s European roots by providing an address in Slovakia. Texas-based HLBS Global Marketing US LLC is HLBS Network’s US business, according to what I’ve read.

According to internal documents, a year ago, in 2016, the HLBS Network was born. Further investigation reveals that HLBS Network’s CEO is Peter Gabriel: Gabor’s LinkedIn profile says he’s in Hungary, according to his location information.

HLBS Network looks to be Gabriel’s first MLM business, despite his significant corporate background. Gabriel has previously worked in the hotel, finance, and real estate industries. It’s not obvious why the HLBS Network’s website does not include contact information for its top executives.

HLBS Network is based in Hungary, so it follows that Gabriel is based there as well. Shell company? The Slovak incorporation looks like a front company. The terms and conditions of the HLBS Network reflect this. Because the HLBS s.r.o. Hungarian Branch represents HLBS s.r.o., Hungarian Law governs this publication. learn more about HLBS Network’s MLM opportunity.

The Products of the HLBS Network There are three product categories on HLBS Network’s website: cosmetics, functional foods, and dietary supplement products. Hair, Makeup, and Skincare The HLBS Network sells four cosmetic products: To help the skin regenerate and protect itself, Citrus+ “gently cleanses.” “LH+ Body” cares for all skin types with its precious ingredients that balance the skin’s PH level. “LH+ Face” is a powerful tool in preserving skin youth.

It protects from harmful sun radiation and its liposomal technology guarantees delivery of the active principles to the deepest layers of the skin. “LH+ Spray” –”contributes to skin regeneration and protection” The HLBS Functional Foods Network In the functional foods category, HLBS Network sells two products: Dark chocolate made with “silhouette sugar free dark chocolate with humic acid and psyllium seed husk” as well as “specialty coffee with taurine, guarana, and inulin” is called “Chocodream Premium.” Dietary Supplements from the HLBS Network A total of nine dietary supplements are available through the HLBS Network: CGS12+-a “vegan pill” supplement for general health Citrus Bioflavonoids and Rutin: a vitamin C supplement containing bioflavonoids DPS12 is a protein drink for vegans on the go.” Natural raspberry and vitamin combination”-IS8—” In a double vegan capsule filled with olive oil, DK5 is “vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 in double vegan capsules.”

Natural elements in HMAX8 “make the body stronger and more resistant. They can even increase athletic performance,” according to HMAX8’s official statement. Detoxification, weight loss, and vitamin supplementation are all supported by berry SLM. Astragalus, Ginseng, and Phosphatidyl in Vegan Capsules” is the product description for AAG1. HC80-“humic acid and cordyceps food supplement capsules” According to our research, HLBS Network’s products are all made in Hungary by unaffiliated third parties.

Be aware that none of the products sold by HLBS Network have retail prices listed on them. It’s HLBS Network’s Payroll Policy. Retail sales commissions are paid to HLBS Network affiliates. However, affiliate recruitment is the focus of the majority of the incentive plan.

Qualifications for the Commission As an HLBS affiliate, you must generate at least €100 EUR every month to be eligible for commissions. This is billed as a mandatory monthly expense. It’s not apparent if retail sales volume meets the €100 EUR per month threshold. Affiliate Rankings for the HLBS Network HLBS Network has a three-tiered compensation model.

Their individual qualifications are listed below, along with a brief description of each: Become an HLBS affiliate by signing up and meeting the commission qualification requirements (see above). It’s up to you to recruit and manage seven members of your team. Managers whose qualifications are not made public. Customer Service and Hiring Commission Affiliates of the HLBS Network are compensated directly when they sign up new retail customers or recruit new affiliates.

A unilevel compensation scheme is used to pay retail and recruitment direct commissions. Using a unilevel compensation structure, an affiliate is put at the top of a unilevel team, with every individually recruited affiliate (level 1) directly behind them: As soon as a new affiliate is recruited by a level 1 partner, that affiliate is promoted to level 2 on their unilevel team.

In theory, there are an endless number of layers of affiliates that can be created if affiliates at level 2 recruit affiliates at level 3, and so on. As a percentage of sales volume, direct commissions for retail and affiliate recruiting are paid to those who bring in new customers and recruit new affiliates. Retail and recruitment commissions are paid on up to four unilevel team levels, dependent on the rank of the employee: 20% on the first level (personally recruited affiliates) Levels 2 and 3 (Team Leaders and Managers): 5% and 10%, respectively. 4 has an unspecified percentage (managers only). In this case, HLBS Pool It appears that the HLBS Pool is, if I’m not mistaken, a binary bonus pool presented in a ridiculously convoluted fashion. The official HLBS Pool slide for the HLBS Network is as follows: First, I’ll try to explain the diagram to you in terms of what I think it means.

The affiliate is in the middle. “1 TY” appears on your right. I’m not sure what “TY” means, but the “1” signifies their first affiliate recruited. 1-1 appears to be “1 TY’s” first personal affiliate recruit, which I believe is the case. The “3” on the right of “1-1” represents the third affiliate that was personally recruited. As a result, there is “1-3” (the third TY affiliate recruited by “1 TY”), followed by “2-2” (the second TY affiliate recruited by “2”), and “3-1.” 1-2 (the second individually recruited affiliate), 2-1 (the first “2” recruited), and 4 are on the right side of the page (fourth personally recruited affiliate).

The following is an auto-translation of the slide’s original English text: If you have two active members, you will receive a share of the bronze pool’s turnover every Monday based on your starting package. The system invests 25 percent of each member’s activity and 10 percent of the customer’s purchase value in the HLBS pool. As you advance in depth, you will receive 10%, 15%, or 20% of the total. Each side of the binary team appears to be fully staffed (one position on the left, one on the right). Regardless of whether there is any significance to the second-to-the-left position on the left, that’s where the volume of money is handed out.

Up to 25% of affiliate and 10% of retail customer order volume can be used to calculate payouts. There appears to be more than one level to these percentages. Only the “beginning package” qualifier is mentioned, suggesting that the HLBS Network affiliate’s HLBS Pool rate is determined by the amount they pay when they sign up. HLBS Pool earnings are connected to the amount an affiliate spends when they sign up, which I can confirm is “100, 500, or an endless number of members.” The HLBS Pool is earned by basic-tier affiliates on up to 100 new affiliates they bring on board.

The HLBS Pool is earned by beginner-tier affiliates on up to 500 new affiliates they bring on board. Infinite HLBS Pool earnings are available to affiliates at the professional and business tiers. At least 10% of the newly recruited affiliate volume is placed in the Start Pool by HLBS Network. A HLBS Network affiliate must recruit four other affiliates in a month to be eligible for a share of the Start Pool.

As new affiliates join, the Start Pool shares of the qualifying affiliates increase in proportion to the amount they spend: In order to maximize your commission, sign up as many new members as possible with the most expensive starting package. Payments are made to members of the Start Pool on a monthly basis. Commission for Top Leaders The “Top Leader Commission” is mentioned in the pay plan of HLBS Network.

We don’t know exactly how this commission works, but we do know that the more money an affiliate spends when they sign up, the higher their Top Leader Commission rate will be. Affiliates in the lower tiers are paid 50% of the Top Leader Commissions they earn. Affiliates at the entry level tier receive a 60% commission.

The commission rate for the top leaders Affiliates in the professional category receive a Top Leader Commission rate of 80%. Affiliates in the business tier receive a 100% Top Leader Commission rate. HLBS Network Membership Affiliate membership in the HLBS Network ranges from €150 to €2,500 EUR. The basic package costs €150 EUR.

The beginner will pay €300 EUR. The cost of professional services is €750. €2500 EUR for commercial use. Recruited affiliates receive HLBS Network products, but their earning potential increases in direct proportion to the amount of money they spend. Final Thoughts on the HLBS Network Retail isn’t HLBS Network’s primary priority, as evidenced by the company’s poorly titled items.

How about LH+, CBR7, DPS12, or IS8? They appear to be acronyms of their ingredients, with no consideration given to naming them. Pay-to-play recruitment is at the heart of HLBS Network’s compensation strategy, which lacks retail focus. To begin with, a new affiliate’s income potential is based on how much they spend. An MLM pyramid scheme is based on the idea that if you spend more, you get more. HLBS Network’s pay structure is mostly focused on recruiting new members, but retail commissions are possible.

The best approach to being a successful member is to have at least seven other members. You become a team leader if you bring in seven new members. If you’re a manager or higher, you’re going to need a lot more people. You’ll need to spend at least €100 a month to be eligible for commissions. The majority of commissions are handed out to autoship affiliates who make at least €100 a month. In other words, a standard MLM pyramid scheme is predicated on the sale of a product.

The presentation of HLBS Network’s binary-based compensation scheme has me a little perplexed. According to the firm, the linear solution to the system is revolutionary and unique. Unlike other systems, this one is completely free from conflicts of interest.

The binary-based compensation plan isn’t something new or novel. Everybody knows about them. In order to be “original and revolutionary,” one must present themselves in a way that is extremely difficult to understand. A straight-line compensation plan is not what you’ll find in a binary. HLBS Network has done nothing more than disregard one side of the binary team and limit commissionable volume on the other.

What about using a unilevel team instead of a matching or ratio-based compensation plan? HLBS Network is essentially doing the same thing, but they’re cutting out a lot of volume and stating this is beneficial to affiliates in some way. That is not the case.

I’m not sure why HLBS Network doesn’t publish remuneration information on their website; therefore, I’m unable to comment.HLBS Network’s presence in the United States suggests that one of its motivations may be the concealment of flagrant FTC Act violations.

HLBS Network, on the other hand, does not publish any executive information on their website. The FTC Act may have been violated once more in this instance.

HLBS Network is an MLM firm to avoid because of its wacky product names and recruitment-based pay structure.

Meta Utopia- Crook Review




A few days ago, we put out its review of Meta Utopia.

“Metaverse” MLM crypto Ponzi scheme that isn’t very interesting on its own.

As part of our research, we found a link between Nicholas Coppola and the man who started the Ponzi scheme.

Or rather, he did it through an Instagram story that has since been deleted:

Coppola wasn’t happy about being linked to Meta Utopia in public, it turns out. He only wants to hide the fact that he is a crypto-bro Ponzi scammer.

Today, Nicholas Coppola joins the DMCA Wall of Shame.

Over the past 24 hours, “Dincer Odabasi” from “Copyright Support” has sent us two emails. Nicholas Coppola’s emails were sent on his behalf.

Copyright Support says on its poorly made website that it will

Negative or damaging news that can be found on the Internet and in Google search results should be taken down for good.

In his first email, Odabasi tries to pull the old “right to be forgotten” scam.

“Dear Madam,

Because of the right to be forgotten and because of the privacy clause, we want the content to be blocked.

We tried to get in touch with the website that posted the content, but we didn’t hear back. So, we give you the content and ask you to turn it off.

As everyone knows, according to the first paragraph of Article 9 of Law No. 5651 on the Regulation of Broadcasts Made on the Internet and Combating Crimes Committed Through These Broadcasts, if they can’t get to it, they can send a warning to the hosting provider and ask that the content be taken down.

Again, the second paragraph of the same article says that “the content and/or hosting provider must respond to requests from people who say their personal rights have been violated by the content of an online broadcast within twenty-four hours at the latest.”

We want the case that was filed on our behalf to be taken care of. Because of the European right to be forgotten and the privacy of private life, we have the right to limit access to content.

Please note that we’re asking you to take down the content because we’ve tried to reach the owner but haven’t heard back. That’s why we want and need you to take it down.”

This is a form letter that con artists send out. I know that because Odabasi put the same notice to Amazon from another email about a different website and client (ruhroh GDPR fail) into the body of the email he sent me.

In any case, the “Right to be Forgotten” law in Europe is used by scammers to hide their pasts, no matter how good the lawmakers’ intentions may have been at first.

The Right to be Forgotten is not part of EU law, so we don’t recognise it. Also, it takes four days from the date of publication until a right-to-be-forgotten takedown notice is sent.

Odabasi went on to say that Turkish law had something to do with the US, which was not true.

Due to the Right to be Forgotten and the USA Legal Content Removal Request Pursuant to Law No. 5651, we can’t take down the content we told you about because it’s in the Constitution.

“The Right to be Forgotten and the USA Legal Content Removal Request” is not a thing, even if that sentence makes no sense. It’s not true at all.

Turkey passed Law No. 5651 in the year 2020. It only happens in Turkey and has nothing to do with the United States.

Odabasi sent another email a few hours after the first one. This time, he threatened to take action because of copyright issues.

“We want you to remove any content that reveals personal information about our representative.

If you don’t get rid of the news content, we will file a copyright claim with your hosting company, Google.

I’d like you to put the story away, please.


As our Policy says, we often use “third-party logos and images,” which is allowed by US copyright law through “fair use.”

We don’t need permission from the people who own the rights to the images we use in our MLM news and reviews. Period. 

The DMCA takedown process is being abused when fair use isn’t taken into account and a fake DMCA is filed. Not only will it not work, but the person who submitted it is lying.

Even though it’s clear that Copyright Support doesn’t care about the law, it’s still important to point out their hypocrisy.

Scam businesses like Copyright Support depend on the fact that the publisher or service provider they are after doesn’t know what they are doing.

Nicholas Coppola has publicly linked himself to Meta Utopia and is involved enough to be close to the Ponzi scheme’s founder, who has not yet been named.

It is not against any US law to publish this information with proof attached.

Update, July 2, 2022: Dincer Odabasi is now committing twice as much DMCA fraud as he was before.

Odabasi sent Google a “court order” on June 28 that says the same thing: “It’s against the law to search for scammers!” Stupid, but it also says this:

Based on the privacy clause of private life and the court document we will send you, we want the content to be taken down from publication and blocked from access.”

Odabasi is saying that a Turkish law is a “court document” that keeps scammers from telling the rest of the world. Oh dear.

Laetitude- Crook Review




Investors such as Laetitutde and Swapoo are circumspect on issues affecting investor wallets and active investments. 

According to a Latitude News report dated August 13th, You have gotten one or two emails from Swapoo in the past several days, which also affects our Laetitude members. 

Due to the continued strong relationship between Swapoo and Laetitude, we can guarantee that these changes will not affect your Laetitude accounts. Latitude will continue to operate as usual.   

The alterations made by Swapoo will have an effect on the wallet and the bots. However, we are aware that wherever there are obstacles and closed doors, new doors will emerge to provide opportunities for greater success. 

Swapoo is merely adjusting to the ever-changing regulatory environment and market situations.

The details of the e-mails sent are kept confidential. I have not encountered any examples in nature. 

Regarding “evolving regulatory landscapes,” Laetitude is a Ponzi scheme operated by Swapoo. 

David El Dib operates Laetitude from Dubai, the center of MLM fraud. Swapoo is run by Dave Martin, who is from the Philippines.El Dib and Martin have both established themselves on the BitClub Network. 

The investigation by the Department of Justice found BitClub Network to be a $722 million Ponzi scheme. The founders of BitClub Network were arrested in 2019. 

El Dib and Martin commit securities fraud and operate their own Ponzi scheme through Laetitude and Swapoo. The regulation of securities is not novel. For decades, every nation with a financial market has regulated securities fraud. 

The Ponzi fraud announced a remedy for lost Swapoo wallets in a follow-up “Laetitude News” post dated August 26;  

As you are likely aware, Laetitude no longer utilizes Swapoo for secure wallet services. As a result, we have recently implemented the ability to fund, purchase, and withdraw directly within Laetitude. 

In light of this, we would like to encourage you to login and withdraw your balance as soon as possible, and to continue withdrawing your balance as your compensation earnings increase. 

Laetitude lacks the two-factor authentication security offered by Swapoo, so it is essential that you protect your account with a formidable password. Again, what is occurring behind the scenes is kept secret. 

The only clue I could locate was a query posted two weeks ago on Swapoo’s most recent Instagram post. 

Swapoo has not published any new social media updates since July 30. This date also marked the last Facebook update posted by Laetitude. 

The lack of visitors to both Laetitude and Swapoo suggests that the Ponzi scheme is running out of money to pay investment withdrawals. 

The Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission is one of the most active securities regulators worldwide.

It is unclear whether they have anything to do with Swapoo’s issues.  

Whatever else is occurring, it is rare for wallets to be abruptly shut off and placed up as unsecured in-house assets. 

Keep up to date on any future developments.

GSPartners- Crook Review




GSPartners has dropped its claim of harassment against Chris Saunders. Saunders is the owner and operator of the YouTube channel Grit Grind Gold, which he uses to critique and report on the GSPartners Ponzi scheme. 

In late January 2021, Saunders was sued for harassment by owner Josip Heit and promoters Michael Dalcoe and Antonio (Tony) Euclides Menesis De Gouveia. 

Heit and the GSPartners Plaintiffs alleged that Sunders’ videos about the Ponzi scheme were defamatory. 

Additionally, Heit took offense when Saunders pointed out his position in Karatbars International’s collapsed KBC Ponzi scheme.  

GSB Gold Standard Corporation AG, Josip Heit, Michael Dalcoe, and Tony De Gouveia submitted a dismissal stipulation on July 29.  

Christopher Saunders, the defendant, executed a declaration in connection with the aforementioned case on July 29, 2022. 

Plaintiffs GSB Gold Standard Corporation AG, Josip Heit, Antonio Euclides Menesis De Gouveia, and Michael Dalcoe, by counsel and with the signature and agreement of counsel for Defendant Christopher Saunders, stipulate to the dismissal without prejudice of all claims in this matter pursuant to the Saunders’ Declaration.

The aforementioned stipulation from Saunders proves that he was granted permission. 

Mr. Ovidu Toma in relation to the Plaintiffs’ assertions and declarations. Since January 2020, Mr. Ovidu Toma has provided me with evidence of Mr. Harald Seiz’s alleged involvement in Karatbars’ wrongful conduct.   

“Ovidu Toma” refers to Ovidiu Toma, the former Chief Technology Officer of Karatbars International. 

Today, Toma serves as the CEO of CryptoData. Romania-based CryptoData sells encryption hardware. 

To return to Saunder’s assertion: I was aware, based on first-hand knowledge of facts and documents, that any alleged wrongdoing committed by Karatbars in relation to its Miami crypto bank and the issuance of KBC/KBC tokens was committed by Karatbars’ CEO, Mr. Harald Seiz, and that said wrongdoing was committed prior to any affiliation between Karatbars and GSB/Mr. Heit.

This is an odd concession to provide. Heit was the public face of Karatbars’ initial excursion into crypto-asset fraud. In an April 2019 interview, Seiz is referred to as a “major investor and board member” of Karatbars International. In Dubai, Karatbars was selling a “blockchain phone” at the time. When challenged about his remarks on the occasion, he responded, and I quote, ” You mentioned the KBC coin.

You stated that it is probable that it is one kilogram of gold. Is this truly a possibility? Heit reacted. Yes, of course it’s feasible. Nobody believes that many individuals perceive, at the appropriate moment, that they can join us.  

We currently have a market valuation of approximately $300 million as of the previous week or two weeks. And now there are about a billion of us.   

Is it not yet understood?  

And when the mainnet is implemented, which will occur very soon, within a few months we will have a market capitalization of over $200 billion. After months of Heit and Seiz promoting Karatbars’ KBC, the KBC Ponzi coin dropped 62% following the hype event on July 4, 2019. 

Heit, not Harald Seiz, was sent to address and explain the collapse to irate investors. KBC continued to leak throughout the subsequent months until it was eventually abandoned.

Heit had cashed out, left Karatbars, and launched his own Ponzi offshoot, GSPartners, before the end of 2019. The GSPartners Ponzi coins have performed no better than those of KBC.

G999 is supported by wash trading, which I believe is steadily depleting GSPartners’ second Ponzi scheme, LYS. G999 is being washed at approximately 0.002413. At $66.78, LYS continues to drain. 

GEUR was launched earlier this month as a result of the continuous failure of G999 and LYS to take off. GSPartners and Heit symbolize the euro-pegged GEUR currency. It is thought that GEUR was developed because GSPartners investors no longer desired to hold G999 and LYS. 

GEUR does not exist outside of GSPartners as of the publication date. GSPartners uses GEUR to support its most recent 300% ROI Ponzi scheme, metaverse certificates. 

In the event that GSPartners and Saunders achieved a settlement, it has not been made public. Other than wrongly saying that Heit was not involved in the Karatbars KBC scam, Saunders has not recanted any of his GSPartners-related statements.  

The court authorized the GSPartners plaintiff’s Stipulation of Dismissal on August 2nd. This concludes GSPartner’s harassment lawsuit against Saunders.
