The Ambaza platform presents itself as the “first school of influencers” and offers training of 28 hours for 1200 euros. Attention, vigilance is required.

Escape on a yacht or private plane, a helicopter ride, a round of golf and a glass of champagne. This is how the Ambaza site sells the life of influencers in its presentation video, which recently went viral on Twitter.

The site claims to be the “first school for influencers”. Thanks to a 28-hour training via videoconference, Ambaza promises 20,000 subscribers and an income of 5,000 euros per month per influencer.

The site says that the training is “open to everyone, even those who do not yet have an Instagram account”. With a total amount of 1,200 euros, the training can be financed “up to 100%” for “the profiles that interest us”, assures the company. In light of the information gathered by BFMTV, this offer should be taken with great care.

A domain name registered in the Bahamas

The legal notes state that the site is published by a company, called “Consumedias” and registered in Malta. Its leader is called Nicolas Brzustowski. On his profile, LinkedIn introduces himself as “Entrepreneur”, “Digital Marketing Expert” and “Cryptocurrency Investor”. Contacted by BFMTV, the Consumedias company has not yet responded.

The domain name, meanwhile, is registered in the Bahamas, according to the IQWhois website.

The general conditions of use no longer inspire confidence. Ambaza specifies that it does not give “any guarantee as to the topicality, accuracy, completeness, ease of use or suitability for a given purpose of the contents” on its platforms. The company also encourages Internet users to “accept that Ambaza platforms and services and their content […] are provided “as is” without warranties of any kind.

Despite his claims, Ambaza does not lead by example on social networks. The site is not featured on Twitter or Instagram, a platform adored by aspiring influencers. His YouTube account, which has only 5 videos, has only been active since 2 June 2022. His Facebook page has no subscribers.

Doubtful sites to promote it

On Google, the search result for the term “Ambaza” leads to the company’s official website, followed by two other sites, at first sight independent, which highlight its formation.

The first claims to be the seat of Cnam (National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts) in Upper Normandy. But the visual identity has nothing to do with the traditional red and white colors used by the public body, which depends on the Ministry of Higher Education.

The legal notices of the site indicate that it is managed by a private company, called “Premier Contact”, whose head office is located in Vincennes (Val-de-Marne). According to its bylaws, the company was created on May 16, 2022. The site has no connection with the official Cnam Normandie site.

The second site is called “Quai des entrepreneurs” and uses the same argument as Ambaza. Its domain name is surprisingly registered in the same location as Ambaza, Bahamas, again according to IQWhois. In the “site contact” section, two telephone numbers are indicated: the first is not assigned, the second systematically refers to a standardized messaging system.
