The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has recently issued an advisory (as seen below) on ECOLIFE BIZ, warning the public of the individuals and groups involved in such activities. The advisory defines the activities behind the scheme, and advises the public to not to invest or stop investing in any investment scheme offered by the said entity, its representatives or any entities engaged in schemes which promises ridiculous rates of return with little or no risks.
In support of this view, Coins.ph does not endorse or is affiliated in any way with such activities or products. Moreover, we have a zero tolerance policy on fraudulent activities and potentially scamming practices. In a separate article, we have enumerated tips on how you can avoid investment schemes and other online scams.

Based on the information gathered by the Commission, a number of individuals or group of persons claiming to represent ECOLIFE BIZ/ISHARED ECOLIFE/ISHARED TECHNOLOGIES ECOLIFE are enticing the public to invest their money in said entities.
Remarkably, Ecolife promises members availing a package ranging from 1,000.00 up to 10,000.00 that they would earn 60% thereof, i.e., P600.00/P6,000.00 per 7 days/cycles.
Investigation disclosed that members of the organization are directed to use and create an account in its website: https://www.isharedtech.com/login or http://www.tuverr.com/login.
Below are the ways to earn:
1. Earn P600 pesos every 7days/cycle:
2. Direct referral
3. Incentives such as smartphones/cars.
Evidently, what was being offered by the company is actually the potential of earning income, ultimately through direct recruitment or through recruitment of others. The income that is promised to its investors or the expected profit of the investors does not come from the outcome of a legitimate business activity.
Further, the aforementioned schemes involve the sale of securities to the public, the Securities Regulation Code (SRC) requires that these securities are duly registered and that the concerned corporation and/or its agents have appropriate registration and/or license to sell such securities to the public pursuant to Section 8 of the SRC.
