TRVL- Scam Review



TRVL is a budget travel MLM company. TRVL Ventures International is based in Georgia, USA. Spencer Iverson (CEO), Mark Sterling (COO), and Jonathan Green co-own TRVL (CLO). Spencer Iverson first came to our attention in 2017 as the CEO of Nspire Network.

Nspire Network sold negative ion tampons. Nspire Network failed in late 2018. Wakaya Perfection bought the company (now Mfinity Global). In early 2020, Iverson tried again. Jewel Sanitary Napkins sold a graphene insert pad line. JEWEL HYGI Napkins is still going (despite a dead website), but Iverson appears to have split.

As President of Epic Trading, Iverson was tired of promoting period pads. Epic Trading is a $99.99 per month pyramid scheme. Epic Trading began with forex and has recently included cryptocurrencies. Epic Trading’s website still exists, and Spencer Iverson is listed as President as of December 2021.

Epic Trading lists Mark Sterling as Vice President of Sales. The Global Master Distributor of Epic Trading. Either Epic Trading has recently left or TRVL is running in parallel. Epic Trading and TRVL haven’t announced any official integrations.

13 December 2021 – Mark Sterling has advised: “Myself, Jonathan Green, and Spencer Iverson are no longer associated with Epic. We all agreed to part ways amicably and wish Epic, the management team, and all customers well.”

TRVL’s Items Membership for TRVL is $49/month. On the other hand, in North America, Daydreamer is the membership. Globaliste membership is sold outside of these nations. An online travel booking engine is available to Daydreamers and Globetrotters.

There are no differences between Daydreamer and Globetrotter. TRVL associates get extra travel services for up to $499 plus $129 membership fee. TRVL has three affiliate membership packages, each with access to the discount travel booking engine: Monthly Weekender – $179 – $179 Explorer – $299 plus $99/month JetSetter – $499 + $129/mo TRVL’s Pay Plan Earn $10 per retail DayDreamer/GlobeTrotter membership sold.

TRVL’s MLM side pays on affiliate recruiting and monthly fees. Affiliate Ranks TRVL’s affiliate program has thirteen levels. They are as follows, with their respective qualifications: Sign up as a TRVL affiliate. 2) Recruit 6 affiliates Ambassador 3 – 9 affiliations Unknown sapphire 15,000 GV per month for Ruby Emerald – 25,000 GV/month Diamond – 75,000 GV/month Blue Diamond – 200,000 GV/month Black Diamond – 500,000 GV/month Crown Diamond – 500,000 GV/month Blue Crown Diamond – 2,500,000 GV/month Black Crown Diamond – 5,000,000 GV/month Group Volume is GV.

Group Volume is generated by selling TRVL memberships: Buying a Globetrotter or Daydreamer membership earns you 25 GV A Weekender affiliate membership sells for 50 GV. An Explorer affiliate membership sells for $75 GV. A Jetsetter affiliate membership sells for $100. A single unilevel team leg cannot provide more than 33.3% of the required GV. Other Rank Requirements are mentioned in TRVL’s Compensation Plan. These are hidden.

Advisory Boards TRVL affiliates receive $10 per retail DayDreamer or Globetrotter membership sold. Recruitment Fees TRVL affiliates can earn up to $150 per associate recruited. affiliate and earn $50 get a $100 Explorer affiliate Join Jetsetter Affiliate Program and Earn $150 Residual Commission (signup fees) Weekender, Explorer, and Jetsetter affiliate recruiting generates $30, $40, and $50 residual recruitment commissions. TRVL pays residual recruitment commissions on a single level. (Level 1):

An unilevel pay system positions an associate at the top of a unilevel team, directly under them. All affiliates recruited by level 1 are placed on the original affiliate’s unilevel team. If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are promoted to level 3 and so on indefinitely. Recruiting a TRVL Weekender, Explorer, or Jetsetter pays $30, $40, or $50 upline.

Weekender scout 1st upline Sapphire gets $5. 1st upline Ruby gets $6; 1st upline Emerald gets $6; 1st upline Diamond gets $5; 1st upline Blue Diamond $5; 1st upline $3 to Black Diamond 1st upline Crown Diamond $3; 1st upline Blue Crown Diamonds $3; 1st upline $3 for Black Crown Diamond Jetsetter hires 1st upline Sapphire gets $7 and so on.

The system looks upline for a Black Diamond affiliate. Repeat until the $50 is handed out. Whenever an upline Black Crown Diamond is located, they receive the residual recruitment commission.

Remaining Recruitment Fees (ongoing monthly affiliate fees) TRVL charges monthly fees to affiliates. This money is used to pay residual recruitment commissions. TRVL pays monthly residual recruitment commissions in a 3×9 matrix. Three ranks directly below an affiliate in a 3-9 matrix:

The first three positions make up the matrices. The second level of the matrices is created by dividing the first three places into three (9 positions). Each subsequent level of the matrices contains three times as many locations as the previous one. The matrix is populated by recruiting TRVL affiliates directly and indirectly.

Membership tier affiliates recruited into the matrix sign up with: Each Weekender affiliate earns $4 each Explorer earns $6 and Jetsetter earns $8 each Bonuses TRVL rewards Ruby and higher level affiliates a Monthly Bonus.

Bonus Pools TRVL deducts an unknown percentage of corporate income from the Quarterly Bonus Pool. The Quarterly Bonus Pool is a quarterly rank-based pool. Ambassadors get 25% of the secret percentage.

QBP Crown Diamonds each receive 5% of the undisclosed proportion Bonus Pools TRVL affiliate membership ranges from $179 to $499: Monthly Weekender – $179 – $179 Explorer – $299 plus $99/month JetSetter – $499 + $129/mo The more a TRVL associate pays for membership, the more they can earn. TRVL End I think the travel discount MLM niche is done. Last year’s failure of WorldVentures solidified this. TRVL is the same.

An unnamed third-party discount travel booking engine linked to an MLM compensation plan. TRVL’s pay strategy encourages recruitment, making it a pyramid scheme. But the DayDreamer/GlobeTrotter membership is certainly not TRVL’s focus.

For starts, a $10 commission is paid on each retail TRVL membership sold. Compare this to up to $150 in recruitment commissions. Also, TRVL’s compensation plan excludes residual retail commissions.

Again, TRVL doesn’t specify residual retail membership commissions because retail isn’t the objective here. In addition, TRVL lacks retail volume requirements for rank promotion. Higher TRVL ratings necessitate more monthly (GV).

Recrutement outnumbers retail membership volume by a factor of two (25 to 100 GV), making it the fastest route to rank up. TRVL only pays travel commissions if a group of six or more is booked. That’s not impossible, but it means most booked trip isn’t commissionable.

True, but only TRVL will profit. Ask your potential upline how much of their monthly volume comes from DayDreamer/GlobeTrotter memberships. Calculate their retail volume based on their monthly PV total. If it’s less than 50%, the affiliate is conducting a pyramid scheme.

Given TRVL’s lack of focus on retail, I’d be astonished if retail membership accounted for even half of the company’s total. The arithmetic underpinning pyramid scams ensures that when they fail, most people lose money.

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.
