iSynergy Group: Is the Firm Involved in a Ponzi Scam? Evade! (Update 2024)

iSynergy Group is an affiliate marketing company that markets itself as a regional leader in the industry. They have a strong presence in Australia and Malaysia. 

However, the company has received a lot of complaints for being a scam. Many consumers complain that iSynergy Group uses predatory practices to squeeze money out of them. 

They have been in controversy for their shady operations as well. In this write-up, I have shared some of those iSynergy reviews to help you understand why you should avoid doing business with them.

About iSynergy Group aka Syarikat iSynergy International Sdn Bhd:

According to their website, iSynergy Group is a performance marketing firm that empowers the modern marketplace through technology. 

They claim to be one of the leading providers of performance-based marketing solutions in Southeast Asia with a proven revenue model. 

Surely, the company makes a lot of bold claims about its operations. 

The Managing Director of this firm is Dato’ Lawrence Teo and the non-executive director is Derrick De Souza. Josh Hunt is another non-executive director while Kevin Coutinho is the sole executive director. 

They have offices in Australia, Malaysia, and Indonesia. 

24/11/2023 Update
As of now, iSynergy Group has not responded, nor has it apologized for its misdeeds. They have ignored our efforts to highlight the problems faced by their victims. Furthermore, they have only focused on propagating their fake PR.

iSynergy Group is Operating in Malaysia but Refusing to Offer Shariah Compliant Services:

When I was looking into this affiliate marketing company, I came across one of their controversies with Ustaz Zaharuddin. 

Mr. Zaharuddin was acting as a Sharia advisor to iSynergy Affiliate Junction for their Islamic schemes. 

Initially, he had received criticism for trying to clean up the company’s name when it faced allegations of fraud. However, soon after receiving those allegations, he stopped associating with the company.

Furthermore, he highlighted that he and his colleague had shared a detailed proposed structure to make the new iSynergy Affiliate Junction scheme sharia compliant. 

However, the company refused to implement those changes. They refused to make their new scheme shariah compliant. As a result, UZAR stopped his affiliation with the company.

This move had caused a lot of controversy at the time, considering a large section of their customer base is Muslim. 

Moreover, it attracted a lot of negative attention to the company and it seems they have put in a lot of effort into ensuring people don’t find out about this. 

What is a Ponzi Scheme?

A Ponzi scheme is a criminal deception investing fraud pledging increased rates of interest with less chance of loss to investors. On the other hand, a Ponzi scam is a deceitful investing fraud that induces retrievals for earlier investors with money carried from later investors.

iSynergy Affiliate Junction is a Scam! – A Client Review

Although Affiliate Junction markets itself as a way for Malaysians to save money and generate extra income, it has received a lot of reviews calling it a scam

Many consumers call it a Ponzi scheme that doesn’t pay out. 

There are plenty of Affiliate Junction reviews online calling the company a scam. For example, the following reviewer highlights that they need help to get the loan back. They can’t afford to pay back the loan every month.

The victim highlights that they entered into the loan agreement 8 months ago by taking an AA license. 

However, when they went to iSynergy Affiliate Junction, they felt betrayed. They say “Around RM650 coat, How can you buy it for RM650… especially if you need it”.

Another Review of iSynergy Group and Affiliate Junction Exposing Their Scam:

The reviewer here highlights that they got into the schemes of iSynergy Group because of their myriad program. They believed it would help them generate additional income and one of their friends was involved in something similar. 

When they saw their friend’s social media posts, they were quite interested. Hence, the reviewer decided to get into Affiliate Junction. 

Although the reviewer faced some problems initially which prevented them from joining the scheme of iSynergy Group, they eventually succeeded in joining the affiliate program. 

isynergy group

Their friend invited them to join ASKL and asked them to pay for the entrance ticket. The reviewer had to pay RM100. At the time, they were only interested in finding out more about Affiliate Junction and its operations. 

Later, they got to the PICC and entered ASKL. They point out that many people there who had visited the event were actually smart. However, they were misguided. 

There were multiple speakers at the event. All of them claimed to be people who got successful through iSynergy Group’s Affiliate Junction. 

isynergy group

However, the reviewer highlights that the speakers didn’t talk a lot about the Mykad program. Instead, they only talked about their successes. The reviewer says it got boring to listen to these ‘successes’ after a while. 

Also, the reviewer points out that the main goal of iSynergy Group’s scheme is to make you sign up for their licenses. At the time, it cost RM1000 but the reviewer highlighted that the license price went up RM22k, which they couldn’t afford. 

When the reviewer told the marketer that they couldn’t afford the license, he suggested getting a loan. 

Apparently, the marketer was well aware of the reviewer’s profession and could help them get a loan for the license. Still, the reviewer turned down the offer. 

That didn’t make the marketer stop. 

He contacted the reviewer again and this time, offered to help get a loan that wouldn’t cost anything. The marketer told the reviewer that he can get a free license if he gets a loan for RM66,000. 

This was a bit too much for the reviewer. They asked the marketer how would they cover the costs of this loan and he assured them that the company pays out RM200 to RM500 per month. 

Certainly, the iSynergy Group marketer was only interested in selling the loans. 

Luckily, the reviewer didn’t sign up for the loan. 

But many consumers weren’t that lucky. There are plenty of iSynergy reviews where the customers are trapped because of their predatory practices.

  2. My life became easy after I made thousands from these online investments but the reason was I investigated investments before letting your money with them. It’s your responsibility to make sure they are legitimate or just scammers.

  3. They are heartless monsters as they don’t feel guilty for scamming college students and making them bankrupt. This company should be shown real hell in this world by the legal authorities.

  4. My love for these companies has been respected because these teens are asked to study but instead of that work they want to become a millionaire at 16, sit back, and cry.

    My brother went for his higher studies in Malaysia and met one senior who offered him to buy an AA Licence from iSynergy which was a scam. After some days he got to learn from his friend that it was a scam for loans.

    Scamming students and making false promises to them is the worst thing a corporation can do.

    The fact that isynergy group is doing this in multiple countries speaks volumes on how unethical they are.

    The entire board of this company needs to be arrested for its criminal practices.

    • My experience was worst with these MLM schemes, one of my friends suggested I invest in some body products, I circulated the links to family members and also posted links on social media accounts but one of my uncles spotted me and asked me not to involve into these activities because he had lost thousands of dollars because of these schemes.

    If somebody is falling for the sketchy ads of isynergy and affiliate junction in 2022, they deserve to lose their money. I mean, they both make ridiculous claims about passive income and making money. You must be really dumb to trust these fools.

    • My friends always asked me to invest in several MLM schemes, sometimes in QNET and sometimes isynergy. But I was never able to gather the courage to invest, still, I am not investing, and looks like will not be able to trust these investments. Until companies like iSynergy are there I am not investing a single penny.

    • The company is nothing more than an MLM scam because their investment scheme promotes buying licenses from them but once you enter into this they will trap you under their shady loan scam.

    I have lost more than RM25,000 because of Affiliate Junction. They are crooks…

    They will keep taking your money and make you take out loans. They know their victims. Few of my friends are still trapped in this scheme. They are hopeful they will turn some profits but I am afraid they will end up in a lot of debt.

    Affiliate Junction or isynergy group whatever it is, it should be investigated by government authorities. How are they an international scam is beyond me?

    Are our governments so incompetent? I think the owners of isynergy are paying off politicians so they would stay safe. Otherwise I don’t think it’s possible for such a huge scam to operate so freely and openly.

      This loan scam provided by iSynergy is a complete nonsense, it is found that they were targeting students to take the loan which proved to be a scam. In this scam, students were asked to buy a license which would provide RM 600 TO RM 650 but it was a complete lie they were not able to pay the money and hence were asked to take a loan which was a complete trap for the students and hence their name was added to the list of the people being scammed by iSynergy.

  13. Anybody who is considering joining AJ or any one of isynergy group’s affiliate undertakings should read this:

    I have worked with affiliate junction for over 10 months. I was a young college graduate and wanted to make money online. One of my friends told me about AJ and I thought I should check it out.

    Their presentations were very good. They made me think it would be the perfect opportunity for me to start doing something of my own.

    The salespeople at AJ convinced me to get my parents to take out a loan for their license.

    Long story short, the entire thing was a sham. The loan was for more than RM30,000. The company doesn’t care about you once you buy licenses from them. They are only interested in selling you these licenses so they can make profits. After that, it’s all you.

    You would be better off starting an online business of your own instead of wasting your money on their pathetic licenses.

      The main goal of the company is to promote its loan strategy so that people can get trapped. This scam starts by buying their license which starts from RM 1000 but its prices start increasing if you are not able to buy the license they will ask you to take a loan which is their real business, selling loans.
