Beware of Cforth – Review

Mark Seyforth tethered LifeTRNDS to Crowd1 back in July 2020.

Jonas Werner, a Swedish citizen, is the owner of the Ponzi scam Crowd1 in Dubai.

The partnership between Seyforth and Crowd1 was profitable for both parties; although Crowd1 boasted about having items, Seyforth earned a share of the money that was taken through the Ponzi scheme.

Seyforth was still employed by the Ponzi scheme Crowd1 as of mid-2021:

In a Crowd1 marketing film from October 2021, Seyforth hinted that he will be joining Cforth Crowd1.

Many Crowd1 users are now unaware that we’re in the process of switching to a new platform after the new year. Right now.

We have taken and slightly modified the platform. We’ve strengthened it a little bit and added a few additional hotels and resorts.

Whatever intentions Seyforth had for Crowd1’s Cforth integration in the latter half of 2021 appear to have failed.

Seyforth, LifeTRNDS, and Cforth are no longer mentioned on Crowd1’s website.

We might infer from this that in late 2021 and early 2022, Seyforth and LifeTRNDS quietly left Crowd1.

In Q2, 2021, Seyforth initially released Cutforth.

Seyforth revived Cforth in May 2022 with a “grand opening”:

The thirty-five Cforth launch video leaves out Crowd1. Additionally, Crowd1 is not mentioned at all on Cforth’s website.

Since September 2021, Crowd1 hasn’t made any reference to LifeTRNDs or Seyforth on their official Facebook page:

jogging beside Seyforth Fredrik Stael von Holstein, a former director of business development at Crowd1, is Cutforth.

Von Holstein’s position as CEO of Cforth appears to have been taken up by Seyforth.

Seyforth is said to be based in Florida, despite Cforth’s lack of a corporate location on its website.

The Terms and Conditions on the Cforth website support this.

Any dispute that isn’t resolved through arbitration must be decided by Leon County in the state of Florida. All arbitration-related issues must adhere to the Federal Arbitration Act.

All other matters about or arising from the Agreement shall be governed by Florida law.

The MLM history of Seyforth began in 1975. Seyforth launched One24 (2010), Day 1 (2012), and Goodlife USA before engaging in MLM Ponzi fraud (2016).

In many ways, LifeTRNDS was a continuation of Goodlife USA; both businesses provided access to travel savings.

The websites for LifeTRNDS and Goodlife USA have both been taken down as of today.

Before Seyforth teamed up with Crowd1, LifeTRNDS consistently throws errors, and Goodlife USA was pulled down.

The non-tradable currency that Cforth represents, called eGigCoin, is tethered to the dollar, with 1 eGigCoin equaling $1.

You can buy “some” third-party goods using eGigCoin. Affiliates of Cforth must open a support request to exchange eGigCoin for USD.

Chair Director: Produce and maintain 200 CC per month, bring on 35 DB and/or DB Pro affiliates, and bring on an undetermined amount of affiliates that were brought on after you joined up across the whole firm (over 1 million)

The CC of VIP affiliates is exclusively calculated using their spending.

Their CC is paired with the CC of the affiliates they individually recruited for DB and DB Pro.

Affiliates of Recruitment Commissions Cforth can register with a Fast Start Package.

Costs associated with the Fast Start Package are not specified in the compensation plan or on the website of Cutforth.

We do know that Cforth affiliates receive $250 for each Fast Start Package affiliate they bring on board.

Commissions for a straight-line queue

Cutforth utilizes 25% of CC traffic to pay commissions for straight-line queues.

Everyone who registers to become a Cforth affiliate is added to a waiting list.

Cforth’s straight-line queue commissions come in two tiers:

Twenty VIP, DB, and DB Pro affiliates are put after each VIP, DB, and DB Pro affiliate a DBO and DBO Pro affiliate recruits, and these affiliates create CCs.

DBO Pro affiliates receive an undisclosed percentage of the CCs created by the following 20 DB Pro affiliates, put immediately after each DB Pro affiliate they refer. In other words, when you refer someone, you also receive a percentage of the next 20 affiliates (VIP, DB, and DB Pro for tier one, DB Pro only for tier 2).

These are probably affiliates who were indirectly recruited because the backlog is filled through corporate recruiting.

Take note that inactive affiliates are skipped over by straight-line queue commissions (people not paying fees). If all twenty positions are dormant, you will not get paid because there is no compression on inactive jobs.

Recurring Commissions

Cutforth utilizes 50% of the total CCs to pay for residual commissions.

Cutforth uses a unilevel compensation scheme to pay residual commissions.

An affiliate is put at the head of a unilevel team in a unilevel pay system, and each affiliate they recruited is positioned immediately under them (level 1):

New affiliates brought on by any level 1 affiliates are added to the original affiliate’s unilevel team at level 2.

If any level 2 affiliates bring on new affiliates, they are promoted to level 3, and so on down a theoretically endless number of levels.

Payable unilevel team levels are capped at 10 by Cforth:

Three unilevel team tiers provide residual commissions to VIP affiliates.

Ten unilevel team levels pay residual commissions to DB and DB Pro affiliates.

Take note that Cforth omits the mentioned residual commission rates.

Worldwide Bonus Pools

Cutforth funds twenty Global Bonus Pools with 25% of the CCs distributed across the whole firm.

The Cforth affiliate ranks correlate to these Global Bonus Pools (Manager 1 through Chair Director).

It should be noted that higher-ranking Cforth affiliates receive compensation from all Global Bonus Pools that qualify, not just the one for their present level.

Director 1 benefits from all Manager and Senior Manager pools, for example. Every one of the twenty possible Global Bonus Pools is split among Chair Directors.

Joining Cforth There are three fee categories for Cforth affiliate memberships:

VIP membership is free.

$29.95 per month for DB

At $69.95 per month, DB Pro

Increased earning potential and bundled third-party items are the main differences between the membership categories.

Keep in mind that a Fast Start Package is also offered. Costs are not made public.

Cutforth Summary

As a “big Marketing Company,” Seyforth describes Cutforth. That’s just a fancy way of stating “we sell subscriptions and things made by other people.”

Ironically, Cforth’s compensation plan does not include Mark Seyforth’s contribution, Voyager (basically a continuation of LifeTRNDS). He hoards that cash for himself.

Seyforth denies that Cforth is an MLM firm even though it operates as one and has an MLM compensation structure.

Does CFORTH engage in direct marketing or direct sales?

No. FORTH is an online store where customers who have access may buy high-quality goods and services at lower costs.

A Non-Paying Customer (also known as a VIP Customer) is not required to upgrade to a paid membership and can join CFORTH for free.

In other words, a VIP client can continue to be a client for life (without paying anything).

VIP clients may even get money from referrals who use the Marketplace to buy goods and services.

None of anything talks about Cforth being an MLM business and having an MLM compensation structure.

ProTip: Your MLM business model won’t alter if you refer to your affiliates as “clients.”

I think the fact that Cforth is a pyramid scheme is a reason Seyforth won’t admit it is an MLM firm.

The free affiliate option, which offers a 5% purchase discount, limits retail opportunities.

This ensures that Cforth won’t have any retail clients. The FTC has made it quite apparent that MLM businesses without substantial retail sales are pyramid schemes.

This shouldn’t be shocking given that Seyforth has no problem collaborating with the Ponzi-pyramid hybrid Crowd1.

Regarding the actual Cforth items, there are a couple of gas tablet prospects floating about. If these things were effective, I believe that everyone would already be using them.

Except for the IDo Deep Sleep Relief Patch and its “advanced BioFrequency technology,” the Nutragrove CBD product line is quite bog-standard.

Riiiiiighhhh…..t.

Even though I have doubts about the device itself, they do offer some context for Cforth’s poor retail viability.

If you decide to buy the patches, they are offered by the manufacturer for $11.99 for a packet of six:

Why would a consumer in a retail setting spend Cforth $35 for 12 patches (really $17.50 for six)?

Even with a 25% reduction, the DBO Pro pricing through Cforth ($26.25 for twelve, or $13.12 for six) is still higher than paying directly for the patches.

The obvious response is “because direct product purchases do not incur recruitment commissions.”

Neal McDonough’s prominent placement in Cforth’s marketing is an intriguing feature:

Seyforth may add further “legitimacy by affiliation” because McDonough has joined Cforth as the company’s “Brand Ambassador”;

Neal McDonough is now a member of FORTH. Neal is a well-known American actor and producer who has worked on over 130 films and television shows. Since the 1990s, he has collaborated on several blockbusters with the biggest stars in Hollywood.

Neal is regarded as one of Hollywood’s finest performers. He has joined CFORTH as a brand ambassador and will be in charge of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).

He will also advertise CFORTH in commercials, on social media, and at events. Neal McDonough is a devout man who is enthusiastic about philanthropy and assisting those in need, particularly children.

The company’s CSR strategy will also be established by CFORTH and Neal McDonough in the fall of 2022.

That’s all it seems to take to wipe away the theft of a boatload of cash from Crowd1 Ponzi victims.

Uncertainty surrounds McDonough’s knowledge of Seyforth and Fredrik Stael von Holstein’s recent exit from the Dubai Ponzi scheme. He ought to do so since the money he received in exchange for promoting Cforth as a Brand Ambassador is contaminated.

In any case, gaining legitimacy through affiliation is not a reality. Whether or not McDonough is involved, Cforth runs like a pyramid scheme.

Finally, I want to talk about eGigCoin.

The strategy seems to be to manually convert eGigCoin into USD and only convert it to a cryptocurrency if sufficient affiliates join up.

Is bitcoin a type of digital currency?

Not at all, no. Bitcoin is a token and not a cryptocurrency. We want to make eGigCoin one of the first cryptocurrencies with a real valuation before it is sold internationally in the second half of 2023.

The eGigcoin will function as a token up to that point.

The conversion of eGigCoin into a cryptocurrency is not guaranteed by FORTH.

Furthermore, if and when the eGigCoin is transformed into, and traded as, a cryptocurrency, CFORTH makes no guarantees about the eGigCoin’s pricing, valuation, or any other aspect of its price.

If you will, it’s an exit scam in the making.

Seyforth, on the other hand, promotes eGigCoin using the standard “we’re going to be the next bitcoin” line;

This is a coin that will eventually be traded as a cryptocurrency.

Consider yourself at the birth of a cryptocurrency like bitcoin. That is a possibility in this case.

At the time of publishing, SimilarWeb identifies Cforth’s website’s whole traffic as coming from the Philippines:

So much for Cforth’s Hollywood-based “Chinese Theater marketing office.”

The Chinese Theater’s renowned marketing and sales staff help CFORTH meet its annual target of 5 million guests.

The fact that Cforth recruiting is booming in the Philippines, in my opinion, is not a coincidence.

The Philippine SEC attacked Crowd1 rather severely. What are the odds that the downline has been interrupted and is now in Cforth?

Whatever the case, if recruiting stops in the Philippines, it’s ended until more Cforth victims are discovered elsewhere.

Math ensures that most participants in pyramid schemes will lose money, therefore pyramid schemes are unlawful business models everywhere in the world.
