UniverTeam released in late 2013 and provide 2 business addresses on their site.
The main address supplied is in Balio Portugal, which seems where UniverTeam is being lacked. An added address in Hong Kong is supplied, nevertheless a Google search discloses numerous companies running out of the very same address. This is typical of virtual workplace room, suggesting that UniverTeam exists in Hong Kong simply as a virtual mailing address.
Accepted as the CEO and Founder of UniverTeam is Alexandre Arenales. Arenales’ previous MLM encounter views him accepted as an “Executive Director” in the Brazilian Ponzi plan Multiclick (person at a loss tshirt):.
When Arenales joined MultiClick is unclear, however video clips of him marketing the system on YouTube exist that were submitted over a year back.
Like TelexFree, Multiclick was your normal “spam the internet day-to-day” Ponzi system. Affiliates invested in between R$ 600 and R$ 2750 each position, and under the guise of spamming the web daily with ads for Multiclick, were guaranteed a ROI of R$ 160 to R$ 800 a month.
After TelexFree was shutdown in June 2013 by regulators in the Brazilian state of Acre, several investors leapt ship to MultiClick. Multiclick had actually allegedly pulled in around 300,000 capitalists (most of which were from Brazil and Portugal), prior to regulatory authorities froze the business’s assets.
Aside from MultiClick being a Ponzi plan, claims of money laundering and embezzlement likewise emerged, with regulatory authorities revealing that authorities in the US, Venezuela and Europe had actually been alerted to the company’s activities.
MultiClick tested the freeze in court, saying that the regulative examination “was a mistake”. In November the original decision was not simply supported but extended. The brand-new freeze included all financial institution accounts and assets concerning MultiClick and their administration, and also prohibited the firm from joining brand-new financiers.
MultiClick’s offices were robbed later on that month, and as I recognize it the case against the company proceeds.
Just how much money Alexandre Arenales had linked up in MultiClick is uncertain, nevertheless the month after Brazilian regulators invaded the business and closed it down, he went on to introduce UniverTeam in Portugal.
I did a hunt for several of the various other execs specified on the UniverTeam site, and not amazingly additionally found them to be ex-affiliates of MultiClick. Antonio Leite for example, is detailed as the CFO of UniverTeam and can be viewed over with Alexandre Arenales in the MultiClick advertising video screenshot.
Right here’s an additional Multiclick marketing video clip example, revealing Arenales once more however this moment with UniverTeam’s “Venezuelan President”, Francisco Vegas:.
I would certainly want to gamble that many, otherwise all, of UniverTeam’s executive team were involved in MultiClick straight under Arenales, or otherwise as other top Portuguese affiliate financiers of the firm.

UniverTeam’s marketed retail services and products seem somewhat of a joke.
UniverShare– 100 EUR to have UniverTeam spam social networks for you?
UniverAds– no person (various other compared to associates) are paying UniverTeam to promote on their classified web site.
UniverApp– 200 EUR for a fundamental social application? Right.
UniverWebs– UniverTeam’s sites all run on WordPress (their homepage uses the $55 “Jarvis” motif). One would presume UniverTeam’s isn’t considerably additional than duplicated WordPress installs.
UniverCommerce– The Jarvis theme “sustains WooCommerce” a third-party ecommerce system for WordPress. Whether UniverTeam are utilizing this however is vague, however I wouldn’t be stunned. Nevertheless, WooCommerce is complimentary so why UniverTeam are billing 350 EUR for this is a mystery to me.
Dismissing UniverTeam’s item line-up as almost unnecessary, just what you’re left with is a common Ponzi plan.
Affiliates indication up for 25 EUR, buy among the 3 readily available packages and, as long as they junk mail the net daily, gather a regular ROI. The amount of of a ROI is paid out is straight linked into just how much is invested, with the package deals also dictating compensation prices in various other locations of the settlement plan too.
New affiliate money through preliminary costs, regular monthly fees and package deal investment, is shuffled around to pay existing investors who have currently paid their charges.
Including a pyramid plan layer to the plan, UniverTeam associates are additionally straight paid to sponsor new financiers.
Provided Alexandre Arenales and his colleagues’ involvement in MultiClick, UniverTeam’s business model and targeting of South American and European Ponzi capitalists is rarely shocking.
Taking a look at the Alexa graphes for “univerteam.com”, one can view spikes at launch (soon after MultiClick’s shutdown ended up being irreversible), and again when TelexFree was shutdown in the US:.
I myself only began to receive evaluation demands for UniverTeam in mid-April, which once again synchronizes with TelexFree’s regulative shutdown. This ought to offer you a great trick of the kind of folks UniverTeam is eye-catching to (Ponzi reload scammers).
Contribute to that management whose case to MLM popularity was fleecing affiliate capitalists in previous similar Ponzi schemes and … well it’s noticeable this isn’t really visiting finish well.
Similar to all Ponzi reload plans, UniverTeam is unlikely to be as successful as its precursors. As soon as that new affiliate investor money decreases and then at some point runs out, kaboom.
