QZ Asset Management: Ponzi Scheme Exploiting Innocents

QZ Asset Management is a major MLM scam. They also go by the name “QZ Invest” and are based in Guangzhou, China. We would like to warn the readers of the website to avoid any interaction with this scammer as they are extremely dangerous.

Blake Yeung is the front guy for this scam. He does not have any verifiable or traceable internet presence, however, it might be due to the differences in the languages. 

Even though QZ Asset Management does not yet have an official YT handle, they have been aggressively marketing their ad videos throughout the internet. 

Many of its victims are unaware of the fact that QZ Asset Management was rebranded in 2021. Before which it was known as Qianze Asset Management.

Other key names involved in the QZ Asset Scam are Roger Sim, Julian D. Meyers, Panjal Chandra, and Andrei Petrov.

Currently, they use qzinvest.com as their domain. MLM scams like this one often change the domain name with which they operate so please be wary of that.

Through Who.is we can see that this domain was registered in 2016 although when we checked out the history of the domain on the Web Archive we found that it has only been active since 2021.

Despite this, the company claims it has been around for more than a decade which is simply not true.

Products

They offer no retailable services or products. There is only their QZ affiliate membership which is promoted by their marketers and affiliates.

How QZ Asset Management Manages Compensation 

In QZ Basic, they claim you can invest $100 to $900 and get a return of 1.75% a week, while in QZ Elite you can invest $1000 or more to receive 3.5% a week. Their ROI cap is at 400%, any money after that you’ll need to reinvest to continue the cash flow.

Seems too good to be true?

Because it is.

They also penalize affiliates who withdraw their money before 91 days. If withdrawals are made within the first 30 days, then a 50% fee is charged. For 31-60 days a 25% fee and 61 – 90 days a 10% fee.

Affiliate Ranks Within QZ Asset Management

There are a total of 5 affiliate ranks within this MLM’s compensation plan. As you might’ve guessed it is a pyramid scheme and the rank system follows it as well.

Rank 1 – $3000 (residual commissions)

Vice President – $6000 (residual commissions)

Senior Vice President – $20,000 (residual commissions)

Executive Vice President – $50,000 (residual commissions)

Director – $150,000 (residual commissions)

Along with this they also pay a rank achievement bonus:

Rank 1 – $500 investment position

Vice President – Samsung Galaxy S22

Senior Vice President – Rolex DateJust

Executive Vice President – Rolex Submariner

Director – Mercedes-Benz GLC

Nefarious Activities Of QZ Asset Management

As discussed earlier, QZ Asset Management was called Qianze Asset Management. They launched in South Korea in 2019. But soon collapsed in 2021, after which it rebranded itself as QZ Asset Management.

Recently since September 2022, they’ve started marketing themselves again and are targeting South America and Africa. Both of these regions are often targeted by MLM scammers due to their lack of wealth and higher education.

QZ Asset Management claims to have been around since 2012, but if that’s the case then their 3.5% return per week should make them billionaires by now. 

They are also unregulated. Even though they claim to be registered with the AMAC (Asset Management Association of China). AMAC is a self-regulatory association, which makes this registration utterly useless as it is not a regulatory entity like SEC.

It is illegal to operate an MLM company in China without registration which explains why QZ Asset Management has not registered there. They are no proof of CSRC registration.

QZ Asset Management is committing securities fraud. MLM companies like this often lend themselves to running a Ponzi scheme.

The numbers don’t add up and just like other Ponzi schemes, QZ Asset Management is bound to fail. 

Dirty Secrets Of QZ Asset Management: Misleading Paid PR & Online Manipulation

If you Google “QZ Asset Management” right now, you will see results similar to this:

At first glance you might not see anything wrong with them. But there is a lot of Google manipulation going on here. The highlighted Google results in the screenshot below are biased news posts where someone from QZ Asset Management’s marketing team paid a PR service for getting featured on the websites.

B4wMSjOMe 1XsrDOMxbokwxrR NTjy0Wrrd3NEiKOEmQ6Y7DGkr65awnnrKHikML8gO6Shh67A bg2v79wglBpUJyGSsB r FSjPx34ICuYBN Ed5JR1gvxRG j WA olwUKZwAGKYZP01Tpx hJhHiK4NFvL8Z0f48qGLjVeJv 1ulbz2tcawwJv aYmg

No one bats an eye at Yahoo.com and Bloomberg.com, as we assume these to be trusted sources of information. However, for a fee, almost anyone can get an article posted on these websites through online PR services. Usually, these services are used by small business owners and influencers. But this does not stop scammers from abusing this as well.

QZ Asset Management is using these biased PR articles as a way to provide social proof to their victims and give them a false sense of security. More often than not, the victims don’t know the difference between press releases and news coverage. And this is exploited by scammers.

  1. HAPPY SIMELANE AND CHABE THE CHUBBY are the prominent HEAD SCAMMERS in this Scam. BEWARE, these scammers show cars and shiny objects and are running this scam at the FOREFRONT.

    Ask them PROOF OF TRADING, THEY HAVE NONE.

  2. Guys, life is all about taking risks. Banks are also scams because they are reaping us off when coming to investments. So, let it be a personal decision for one to invest with such companies or not. My question is that, why law enforcement agencies don’t arrest leaders of such companies during the events they are hosting in particular countries. There is no wrong or right answer to this one. People who are discouraging others to invest they are also not helping in providing option 2 for investment opportunities. Banks are owned by capitalists and their role is to steal from people so that they do not become rich. This is the fact. I am personally going to risk with this company and see how it goes. If I win I win and If I loose I would have tried. All billionaires I know they also took a high risk and today they are living good life. At the moment there is no single person who is a billionaire who made a comment in this regard, perhaps it was going to be easy for all of us. So life goes on, let us continue taking risks rather than been fearful.

    I don’t know how people invest blindly without investigating the legal terms of the company because many companies like QZ Asset Management don’t have a registration which is proof of these scammer companies.

  4. Once a company start enriching people, many other agencies are never happy because they are loosing customers.

    I know people who have been with QZ and they are getting paid.

    QZ has participated in many FinTech events and they even showed their roadmap for 2023.

    My question is this:

    What has you company gripeo offered to people before QZ started offering these packages?

    Nothing.

    So don’t come here trying to BULLSHIET us. 🖕🏿

  5. The real problem is that people don’t understand the difference between scams and real business. The way people are using the model of direct selling to promote their Ponzi schemes is shocking. I hope more people find this review and stay away from QZ Invest.

    Once I also fantasized about such a scheme which led me to lose my hard-earned money so I will suggest all the users, especially the new users investigate the real image of the company. As the company is having its roots in China which proves the fact that it isn’t a registered company which sounds like a foolproof scam.

    The day I lost my $5000 because such a company broke me up. Now I am developing skills to understand the market and also alerting new users not to blindly trust companies like QZ Asset management. The easiest way to check their reality is to check whether they have any registration from their origin country, or do they have a license.

    Don’t fall for this scam!

    I recently got a call from Q Z Asset Management where they offered an investment of $4000 for the sake of earning $10,000 which was a scam because no company will provide such a massive income on such a small investment.

  9. My experience with a company with an excellent reputation on the internet made me invest in some cryptocurrency with high refunds, which made me lose my $10,000 as they stopped responding once I paid them. Thus I would recommend every user first check about the company’s registration and license proofs.

  10. It is very important as a company that does review about other people’s company to ensure that u get indepth knowledge about their project before u come up with negative review.

    Let me explain certain important aspect of why QZ Asset Management company is not one of those companies u should quickly jump into a classified of a Ponzi project.
    First and foremost, u should have checked their Chinese registration date from the relevant authorities, double check to be sure if they were registered 10yrs ago or not. In this registration aspect u failed to tell us that they were duly registered and regulated by the Chinese government, so let me help u with that fact…QZ Asset Management full name is Guangzhou Qianze Asset Management co.Ltd with Registration number 440126000323662 and their unified social credit code is 914400113054529989. Everyone go and verify for urself.
    it is also important to know that QZ is an asset management company, so I need everyone to read more about Asset management company before u slam into false conclusion, an asset Management company offer services, their products is trading the Index market using their own technology called the BDAI, of this fact u failed to tell ur readers that QZ has attended various conference and Fintech events where they showcase these technology back then in 2019.
    So as I review company,why didn’t u know about them back then, u are today talking about QZ Asset Management company because they decided to embark on a global expansion and in order to reach out to more people the company adopted to use the traditional system of company growth, network marketing.
    To use the network marketing model for growth is not a reason to call a company Ponzi, it is a global standard and the use of a binary rewards system is also global practice.
    QZ will feature on various Fintech events in 2023 and it is time to learn how to do proper review unbiasedly.
    I hope this will be published so that other will learn the positive side of QZ.Fpr more insight members are free to WhatsApp me on[REDACTED]

      NOTE. There are several red flags, The website address differs – This suggest impersonation, The scam company is using the name of an existing company.
      The company address also differs while registration date differs.

    • I found out,there is legal company based in China called Guangzhou Qianze Investment Co. Ltd (Guangzhou Qianze) but the real company only deals in asset disposals,asset acquisition other services etc and founders are not same.Also important the founder CEO of QZ if you can observe carefully is not exactly same person who does those Fintech Expo..my observation is that they QZ went looking for someone with similar features,and impersonate the real person who is a reputable figure.
      Trend of scams nowadays they clone legit companies…do thorough research before joining anything

    • Hi there, can you please share sites or companies where people can validate reg numbers you shared. This is to help people do their own due diligence.

    • These people are ruining lives for a living and you are out here promoting their scam? How shameless are you? Do you have any dignity for the thousands of victims they have?

      QZ Asset Management must be stopped, anyone with functioning brain cells can see that it is a Ponzi scheme.

    It is really dangerous nowadays to invest your money here and there without having any concrete knowledge of the company.
    My girlfriend was very interested in investing less money and earning a high amount, which is a dream for every investor but we must investigate the company’s past.
    Being investors it is our primary duty not to invest in MLM schemes, especially the ones having links to Pyramid schemes because it is going to cost you very high.

    My sister was part of a pyramid scheme when she worked for the health supplement company thrive it got to the point where some of her close friends were blocking her on social media because she kept posting about needing recruits to continue earning money when we asked her why she started she answered with because the product actually works and the person who recruited me just bought a car off a dealers lot with the money she made (the recruiter didn’t buy a brand new car she had rented one).

  16. The most important thing about this scam is that people are promoting these fraudsters without knowing the reality of these companies. One of my aunts promotes some MLM company links on her Facebook, after investigating the company I found that the company was not having any legal registration from its country.

  17. Omg here in South Africa they have started scamming ppl. I just hope they catch them before more ppl loose money. I knew something is not right

    • Y info is widely searched but u failed to get us ur checks with the Chinese government as u can report such illigalities to the Chinese government

  18. These people brainwash you.

    I have seen my friend turn into a sleazy salesman for QZ Asset before my eyes. They sell false hopes and dreams. It’s all very sad.

      It is heartbreaking after coming to know that these companies are fooling people in the name of providing profits to the users but in the end, users get scammed.
      Once I got scammed by this company QZ Asset Management as they were famous on the internet thus I got impressed and at the same time I fantasized about earning high returns. But in the end, I was one of the scammed users.

    • It is similar to those companies which are scamming people for the sake of providing handsome money through their investments.

    • Being an investor it is a religious practice to get the complete past of the company and the owners. Beware!

    I invested with QZ Asset Management a while ago and after reading this review, I’m scared.

    I haven’t received any compensation from them so far but I thought that was normal. I’m hoping they will make a payment before Christmas. I don’t want to lose money.

    This company is a horrible scammer, with a minimum deposit of $ 25000 they claim to offer good returns. But the main problem is that the company shows high profit but doesn’t give you the money. You will keep investing expecting good profits but the actual returns will be less.

  23. QZ Asset Management needs to be investigated by INTERPOL. That’s the only way this financial scam would be brought to an end. I am pretty sure they have operations in multiple countries.

  24. I think social media has made it much easier for these ponzi scams to expand. My aunt promotes a similar scam on her Facebook. She keeps posting links about how great it is and whatnot.

    It’s a bit hilarious sometimes but at the end, you know she will be disappointed.

    • we must learn to do proper research before we rush to say negative things about other company.
      U are also trying to sell ur company as a scam review site, so learn unbiased reviews if not people can’t trust ur reviews and so click will decline.
      I challenge u to do a review on the various international Fintech events that QZ has attended and let the world see if scam or ponzi company will win such awards for innovative technology called Big data Artificial Intelligence

  25. I wouldn’t call those rankings “Affiliate Ranks”.

    They are clearly a title scheme these fraudsters are using to mask their Pyramid Scheme.

    It is so common for schemers like qz asset management to use these tactics so people wouldn’t view them as a pyramid scheme.

    Someone claiming to be from QZ Invest contacted me recently. They said I can make $5000 to $10000 in passive income easily if I invest just $3000 with them. I knew right then they were lying. There is no way a business can generate so much passive income with so little investment.

    • My brother was involved in an MLM company where he dreamed to become a millionaire by selling the membership of the company, but in the end, he (we) ended up losing $5000. Though QZ Asset Management company looks like the same.

    • Once my sister was stuck with this company she used to spend hours adding new members which is the basic requirement of any MLM scheme or say of any pyramid scheme.
      This company claims to be registered with AMAC and tries to prove its true face to its users.

    I knew it

    I just finished from a zoom meeting about this scheme. Immediately I started doing my research online and noticed something fishy. The numbers don’t add up after using Domain Age Checker. Finally I stumbled on this site from the search engine and yes I’m finally convinced – QZ or whatever they’re called is not real.

    • I was shocked when I came across this article, the first thought I got was whether my money is safe or not, and as I scrolled down it was giving me bumps whether I will get my money back or not. When I mailed the company for transferring my savings they didn’t reply yet.
