Some Journalists suggest now all Rocket Internet clone empire is only a big PONZI schema.

The World Bank Group’s IFC invests in Rocket Internet startups
Rocket Internet has secured a new, rather unusual investor for its Zalando clones in Russia and Latin American: the International Finance Corporation, a member of the Wold Bank Group. The amounts of funding are surprisingly small for a Rocket Internet company – Russia-based Lamoda received €10m, while Latin American Dafiti secured €15m.

 "Oliver Samwer told me earlier this year in an interview. It has raised hundreds of millions of dollars from investors to build out these operations, often from repeat investors — something that could either point to sustained success if you are a Samwer believer or ponzi-like tendencies focused around clones, if you are one of their detractors."
Please read article (written by Alexander Hüsing):

Perhaps Affinitas GmbH. is the biggest fraud ever discovered in the Online Dating Industry, involving 24 countries or more! If company Affinitas GmbH. is revealed in public as major fraud, Rocket Internet clone empire could be revealed by Journalists as big PONZI scheme of USD 3 Billion, involving over 250 Internet companies cloned by the Samwers ? Like Parmalat, Enron Corporation, Bernie Madoff, etc.

How many of those cloned companies are really profitable?
What will happen if they can not sell them to others?
