As a result of Validus’ recent acquisition of AuLives, I became aware of the company.
Former OneCoin scammers launched a Ponzi scheme called AuLives in mid-2018.
As of this writing, Alexa has rated AuLives’ website traffic as “N/A,” which means it’s impossible to estimate.
What this tells us is that AuLives has already fallen apart. November 2019 was when AuLives’ official Facebook page went offline.
The AuLives affiliate investor database was what Validus purchased.
AuLives founders Parwiz Daud and Mansour Tawafi are making one final money grab.
Validus’ website and social media channels make no mention of Parwiz Daud.
AuLives hired Frank Ricketts as CEO for a short period of time. No mention of Ricketts, who is currently on trial in Germany for OneCoin money laundering, either.
But Validus’ “new VP of sales,” Mansour Tawafi, has signed on.
But hold on… pre-launch conference call?
On June 15th, 2021, Validus’ website domain was registered. A Facebook page for the business was established on that date, on the 16th of June.
Validus is not a “pre-launch” product. For the past seven months, the company has been advertising.
The CEO of Validus was featured in a promotional video about a month after the company’s launch. The CEO was renamed “Howard Friend” a month later, in August.
His first MLM company appears to be Validus.
