Nugen Coin- Crook Review



On its website, Nugen Coin gives no information about the company’s ownership or management.   

The domain name for Nugen Coin’s website (“”) was privately registered on November 1, 2021.   

I learned about Nugen Coin because a reader made a connection between it and Free Mart.   

I was able to verify this through research: In 2016, one of the website reviewed Free Mart. David Crookston and John Austin created the business together (left and right, respectively).

Free Mart was essentially a pyramid scheme because it failed to distinguish between affiliates and retail customers. Attached to the MLM opportunity were bizarre merchandize.

Free Mart attributed fraudulent medical claims to Having not explored Free Mart since 2016, I was surprised to learn the company’s name has changed to “ShopFreeMart.”  ShopFreeMart operates from “,” which contains no information regarding firm ownership or managerial personnel. In addition, there is no mention of NugenCoin. 

A red flag is raised by ShopFreeMart’s refusal to declare ownership of Nugen Coin and conceal this information from consumers. As is failing to reveal ShopFreeMart’s ownership and corporate information.  

Both failures to disclose are potential FTC Act violations.   

Based on the above screenshot from the Nugen Coin promotional video, we can confirm that John Austin is still the CEO of ShopFreeMart.   

David Crookston departed the organization under a cloud in the middle of 2016. This pushed Austin to expose his dirty laundry in public. 

If an MLM firm is not transparent about who runs or owns it, you should always think twice before joining and/or contributing money.   

The Nugen Coin Items: Nugen Coin does not offer any items or services for sale.    Affiliates may only promote their own Nugen Coin affiliate membership.   

Plan of Compensation for Nugen Coin: Affiliates invest in Nugen Coin on the promise of a return on investment. Free Mart is presently selling affiliate Nugen Coins for 32.7 cents apiece. The minimum investment in Nugen Coin is $50.    ShopFreeMart locks up Nugen Coins for 18 months after they are invested. This is done with the promise of a 202-day return on investment of 200 percent. While your coins are being staked with NuGen, you will receive more coins four times per day at a rate of 0.35 percent, for a total daily return of 0.357 percent. The quantity of coins in your account will double in 202 days at that rate of compounding. 18 months equals 547 days, which equates to a ROI of around 2.72 percent every 202-day cycle.   

Affiliates that invest in Nugen Coins through personal recruitment earn a 10% commission. Furthermore, any MLM commissions earned through ShopFreeMart, provides no remuneration information on their website. Consequently, I cannot confirm whether the compensation plan has been revised since 2016.   

Integrating Nugen Coin, Affiliate membership with Nugen Coin appears to be free.    A minimum Nugen Coin investment of $50 is required to fully participate in the associated income opportunity.   

The website of ShopFreeMart has no visitors. Therefore, ShopFreeMart’s MLM business model is defunct.  Nugen Coin looks to be a last-ditch effort to continue monetizing affiliates by luring them into cryptocurrency fraud. 

“NuGen Cryptocurrency (symbol: NUGEN) is our flagship coin and can be purchased from us directly.  ShopFreeMart provides no technical details about Nugen Coin. which is peculiar given that Nugen Coin is promoted as the “new standard for banking and commerce.”    ShopFreeMart also promotes Nugen Coin with the typical “we’re the next Bitcoin” bullshit. 

Consider the evolution of Bitcoin. Initially listed and traded at 5 cents per coin, the price has since risen to approximately $41,000 per coin. It is now your turn.”   

This is an unsubstantiated marketing claim made solely to encourage investment in Nugen Coin. This is done on the promise of a daily ROI, which affiliates passively collect for eighteen months.   

The Nugen Coin provided by ShopFreeMart is unquestionably a security service. This necessitates registering with financial regulators and submitting audited financial reports.   

In their End-User License Agreement, Nugen Coin provides a Florida-based business location. The agreement for Nugen Coin additionally specifies that United States law, except its rules on conflicts of law, shall govern this Agreement and your use of the Application.   

According to the SEC’s Edgar database, neither ShopFreeMart, Free Mart, Nugen Coin, nor John Austin are authorized to sell securities in the United States.   

This suggests that Nugen Coin and ShopFreeMart have committed securities fraud, at the very least.   

As for the investment possibility itself, ShopFreeMart affiliates bought in at 9.6 cents a coin, which is roughly a third of the price at which Nugen Coin is currently being sold.   

They will be the first to reach the 18-month maturity term, allowing them to withdraw assets that were later invested.   

Despite the fact that 10 percent commissions are not MLM, I’ve covered Nugen Coin owing to their ties to ShopFreeMart. Those who acquire the greatest number of investors will earn the highest Nugen Coin commissions.   

Withdrawals will occur through the planned internal exchange of Nugen Coin.   

“We are in the process of launching our own NUGEN EXCHANGE, where you will be able to purchase, trade, and speculate on the price of the coin. NUGEN will be listed on the exchange alongside Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Additionally, NUGEN will be listed on platforms like Binance.”   

Even though Nugen Coin’s website domain was registered seven months ago, the cryptocurrency is still openly tradeable. John Austin is presumably reserving public trading for his inevitable departure fraud. This will result in Nugen Coin being dumped on shady public exchanges when ShopFreeMart is unable or unwilling to honor withdrawal requests.   

I’m sorry for your loss as Nugen Coin affiliate holders panic sell and the public trading value plummets to zero.

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.
