“Oz” claimed he created BehindMLM out of a genuine interest in the MLM industry and a desire to provide the public with relevant and accurate MLM information, news and company reviews.

Additionally, he hopes users you find BehindMLM a useful resource and feel free to leave any feedback below. Review 

Behind MLM is founded by a free-lance German (Ebersdorf)  reporter living in Taiwan – Taipei, Klaus Bardenhagen. Klaus Bardenhagen publishes under the fake name “OZ” and Michael Turton.

His business model to make a profit, is to get as many visitors as possible with biased marketing to create fear, uncertainty, doubt and send the honest truth as the case maybe.

They analyze in depth compensation plans and in 90% of all cases their web posts, it’s often controversial and has sent panic.

They often conclude base on the fact it’s a pyramid, a ponzi or a recruitment scheme.

BehindMLM articles are very often published with photos of the MLM owners.

However, he strived to remain anonymous but he was busted. We at Xycinews Media have the opinion if you are so explicit negative about Network Marketing then stand up and reveal your real name.

Is Behindmlm Legit 

Importantly, I always warn my blog readers first not to fall for Ponzi schemes and other (pyramid) investment frauds. 

This is because these scams involve paying longer-standing members with money from new participants, instead of actual profits from investing or selling products/services to the public. 

Back to the point, Behindmlm doesn’t offer product sale and can’t be linked to Ponzi schemes as it never ever promotes but rather degrades. 

Nonetheless, Behindmlm reviews are sometimes highly controversial and a low of individuals has threatened to sue the for huge fees.
