According to the SEC, Elite Alliance Vera Trade is a Ponzi Scheme and an investment scam.
Individuals or groups of individuals representing the Elite Alliance Vera Trade, owned and operated by Eins Angelo Ruiz Valencia, are enticing the public to invest their money in the said entity with the promise of monetary rewards or profits, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The said entity is enticing the public to invest a minimum of P500.00 with a guaranteed 100% return of investment every 15 days or for a total of 600% in just 90 days or three months with 50 percent.
The entity claims to trade forex and runs the EAV System, “a simple auto trading platform where you can earn passive and unlimited income.”
To sell securities to the public, the scheme described above must be properly registered and/or licensed under Section 8 of the SRC.
The Commission’s records show that while EAV Trade was registered as a one-person corporation on July 22, 2021, it is NOT AUTHORIZED to solicit public investments because it has not obtained prior registration and/or license from the Commission as required by Sections 8 and 28 of the SRC.

SEC Warns EAV Trade Has No Secondary License Yet
In its advisory issued September 9th, 2021, the SEC clairifies that the EAV Trade has not secured the Seconday License yet. The commission said that the document showed by Valencia to the public in its social media post was a purported Certificate of Filing of Amended Articles of Incorporation of a corporation named as “ELITE AV HOLDINGS INC.” with a Company Reg. No. CS202155332.
The said document is fake as the Commission’s office which appeared thereat is still at Mandaluyong City and that the said document appears to be signed only on 31 August 2021.
The SEC said:
Worse, the document that , President of Elite Alliance Vera Trade System OPC,manifests to be the company’s secondary license is fake or a forgery. For all intents and purposes, the mainobjective of Mr. Valencia is to deceive the gullible that this Commission has allowed him to solicit investments from the public. Such despicable act makes a mockery of the law the Commissionenforcesand implements.
