SCROOGE FOR NEW YEARS?
STANLEY HOME PRODUCT & FULLER BRUSH MLM’S SOLD
30 Dec 2006 – Stanley Home Products one of the founders of MLM & Fuller Brush an MLM predecessor (with conversion to MLM 15 years ago) have been sold.  The Parent Company CPAC Inc., announced they would be sold to Buckingham Capital Partners for $42.8 million.  A concern to the MLM Distributors was an ignorant press release that said the 600 employees (NO DISTRIBUTORS) of  CPAC would be cared for.  This press release was like a shot at the good hard working MLM folks that have worked these brands hard.   Over 11 complaints have been received at the www.mlm-dra.org  from Fuller/Stanley folks worried if they are going to be shafted (commission cuts).  Buckingham Capital Partners must have some real dummies in charge, the press release was like a threat to the MLM Distributors!   The deal will close the first quarter of 2007, or will it if all Distributors take off??  Instead Buckingham will be laying off those 600 employees at CPAC!  Happy New Year HUH!

NY TIMES ATTACKS MLM - BACKING SHORT SELLERS
17 Nov 2006 – The NY Times writer that did this story for the largest newspaper in America is a typical of liberal writer anti-entrepreneurial bias.  This idiot starts out saying that MLMers are responsible for “commercials that promise riches, selling herbal supplement and beauty supplies". Huh?  He should have said Direct Response TV, more commonly called infomercials.  Rarely has an MLM company used DRTV ….

The NY TIMES writer goes on with more non-researched information.  The FTC DID NOT cite hundreds of cases of MLM Fraud.  Requirement for deceptive practices lawsuit - reporting?? Huh!  Read this!  "In April, citing hundreds of fraud investigations, the F.T.C. proposed new rules for multilevel marketing companies and related businesses. They would require companies to tell potential recruits how many sales representatives have failed to earn more than their start-up costs and how many customers have filed lawsuits for deceptive practices".

REPORTED SHORT SELLER TARGETS: Since the commission’s proposal, short sales of many publicly traded multilevel marketing companies have increased. Short positions in Avon, Tupperware, Nu Skin, Herbalife, Pre-Paid Legal Service, Mannatech, USANA Health Sciences and Medifast have grown. For instance, the number of Avon shares shorted has increased 44 percent, to 11.3 million, since April. Shorted shares of Tupperware are up 77 percent, to 3.9 million, or roughly 1 in every 15 publicly traded shares.

FDA SHOOTS AT XANGO - HITS J.I. RODALE'S GHOST
30 Sept 2006 –  FDA spies slithered into a Xango seminar and ordered mangosteen brochures from third party literature vendor Sound Concepts, who has no financial connection with Xango.  This is the same type of third party literature that is in every health food store in the nation.  J.I. Rodale is a hero to American people. He fought the FDA and FTC through the courts for years to maintain printed “Freedom of Speech” for third party literature that DOES NOT have a company name on them.  Our hero J.I. died on the Dick Cavett Show in front of the millions of people blasting the FDA and FTC.   Today, Rodale press is still one of the largest publishers of health related magazines and books (over $600 million a year). The FDA sent a nasty letter to Xango – by error, no doubt (some FDA youngster not familiar with freedom of speech issues).  Let’s hope that Colby Olds over at Sound Concepts takes up where J.I. left off... NO! Colby don’t die on national TV like J.I. Rodale, for heavens sake!

Some high humor here: AATCM, his new “money separator,” adds the words.... Guaranteed! Gee Phil, isn’t moving into securities fraud a little heavy even for you? This movie is a humorous list of Phil Piccolo’s past transgressions, including the magnetic showerheads that he used to separate financial sheep from their money. Years ago, I called this operation magnetic shearing. When I published that story that in the old MLM Insider, Marcie, my fair bride, got a special and vile cursing message left on her telephone after we printed a “Shearing Sheep” article on Phil A. Piccolo. When it cools off the, WatchDog will go to storage and pull out the recording of good old Phil’s cursive message, which will certainly dispute Piccolo’s claim to being a Christian.  Stand by for the audio on the WatchDog. IN THE MEANTIME, DO NOT MISS THIS MOVIE!

ADVOCARE IN TROUBLE? – DISTRIBUTOR TERMINATIONS
21 June 2006 – An Old friend of mine started Advocare out of Dallas.  He died, now I bet he is rolling over in his grave.  Advocare has done some real strange Distributor Terminations.  Here are the notes on the investigation that the WatchDog has started.  When companies start termination of Distributors for weird reasons they usually start to float to the top.

GASOLINE ADDITIVES THE PLOTS THICKEN
18 June 2006 – Now it seems that Omstar 1280DX (see website below) has crawled into a snakepit.  They are selling product to aaTCM - AA Turbo Charge Marketing, Inc. A massive email blast by Phil Piccolo (click for Phil’s history) laid claim that he’s the mastermind behind aaTCM.  It’s verified that Piccolo is trying selling regional positions for big bucks.  If anyone is fooled by Phil’s Christian b.s. I have a tape were he called my wife several years ago.  It is so vile we would have to hide the Audio from Women and kids.  Does this product have the required EPA test for gasoline engines? SEE LATEST SHOCKING NEWS FOR ADDITIVE SELLERS! 

MORE "THIN ICE" GASOLINE PROGRAMS
16 June 2006 -- Magnets are back! They are one the favorites of the FTC to whack (Dallas).  APPGas is back! They have almost the same website as they did when the Missouri AG shut them down (Dallas).  APPGas raised prices to $499 so they can try to pay $50 a month. You would get a gas card for $150 a month with $200 worth of gasoline on it.  Well, you would have, if the cards had worked. That is why the AG in Missouri got them last time. Switching from Dallas (the home of shaky gas deals?)  to the west coast, the fuel additive company Omstar initiated arbitration proceedings against Ethos (settled once).  See the page below, the only way to prove additives or gizmo's work.

911  NEW FTC BIZ OPP RULE HITS ALL LEGIT MLM COMPANIES
Get This To Your MLM Company and Thier Lawyers = 911!
http://www.mlmconsultant.com/ftc_proposal.html

911  NEW FTC BIZ OPP RULE HITS ALL LEGIT MLM COMPANIES
Get This To Your MLM Company and Thier Lawyers!
2 May 2006 – Your Editor had time to go through the new Biz Opp rules the FTC wants to put in place.  They look terrible!  Here some really silly things that I do not think will help stop scams one bit.  I will have the full Rule Making PDFup in a day or two.  Meantime here is my analysis:

1.  Seven days before a prospect signs up and pays money they will have to sign your MLM Company disclosure document.  Your company will have to spend money to store these written pieces of paper.  So get our your old fax machines or... expect to have a big Fedex bill sending these disclosures around.

2.  Want to wait 7 days?  That is what the FTC wants you to do!  You will have to wait seven days after the prospect
     signs the disclosure form to sign them up and get their money to your company.

3.  The FTC is saying the Biz Opp disclosure form will only be one page!  Fat chance, by next year it will be 2 pages
     and probably be 10 pages in 10 years.

4.  They want more people to handle the paperwork.  Oh great, a bigger government!  Where is Ronald Reagan??

5.   Will it stop scamsters?  No!  See Below!

6.   In the draft rule the FTC quotes their so called attack on Pyramid Schemes they quote their takedown of 2extreme.  Yes they did,  2 years too late and after your WatchDog had helped people that had been scammed out of $30 K send complaints to their AG's and he FTC.  This was over 20 older people taken for over $30k@ .... Two years later the FTC moves!  They also quote Equinox who was hitting people for at least $5000.  The FTC limit was $500 and it took them years to do anything.  In Fact it was when we (The MLM Watchdog) got Equinox on ABC's 20/20 that the FTC was forced to get off their buns and did something about shutting Equinox down.

7.  The Federal regulation is dropped to zero dollars from $500 to have to have the disclosures in #1 signed.

8.   The FDA tricked the National Nutritional Foods Association on Good Manufacturing Practices for Manufacturers and
came out with rule  (which in effect are laws) that were bad.  It seems that the FTC may be copying from the
FDA  bad   playbook.  No open vote on this... the FDA and FTC Commissioners vote behind closed doors!

9.   In effect this proposed Biz Rule by the FTC is a law.  The problem is that our elected Senators and Congressmen  are not voting on the  new rule.  Just 5 FTC Commissioners that are appointed - not elected - behind closed doors!

UP TO YOU WEALTH PYRAMID SCAM
5 May 2006- Not only is this an illegal pyramid scheme, but the giving of the "gifts" can trigger huge taxes to both those making the gift and those receiving.  UTYW is a deal that can Bring the IRS to your doorstep with handcuffs.  The website for this scam (See the “camoflauge” lies for yourself  on the front page.. Do not sign up!) http://uptoyouwealth.com. This is a good learning experience of how scammers lie.  You may also want to check to see exactly how the "gift" aspect worked...  are you required to pay $$  in order for you to gain more money? If you stand to make money from giving a gift... It is illegal.  What happens is when these scams get busted?  The IRS follows behind with the records seized from the gifting scam and you are in for the IRS audits of your lifetime...  Call your IRS office and ask for an Investigator and tell them you have been offered an opportunity to make money by joining a gifting program!  It can save you grief!

EXPECT ANOTHER  HIT ON HYIP (HIGH YIELD INVESTMENT PROGRAMS)
1 May 2006 – Back in 2003 the FBI ripped a hole in HYIP programs that are so common on the Internet.  The FBI calls them “High Yield Investment Fraud.”  You've heard it here before but here are some common traits of HYIP scams.
o "Secret" trading
o Risk free
o Guaranteed and/or high rates of return
o Investments only used as collateral
o Not licensed
o Not offered by legitimate brokerage firms

17 Apr 2006 – The WatchDog is getting email from gifters telling me I am stupid.  Why, because I don’t realize the  IRS says gifting money is legal.  Sorry “Gifters” there is a hitch in the IRS code for you.  You can certainly give $10 K a year away legally.   In fact send me all that excess money you want.  HOWEVER don’t expect to make any money from doing it!   When you “Gift” (give money) to another person, with the expectation of making money it is illegal!  http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/alerts/giftalrt.htm        Attorney General list to report Gifting Scams

HO-HUM "THE STREET" BLASTS -  PRE PAID LEGAL
11 Jan 2006 – Ho hum, this writer keeps blasting PPL.  A class action suit against PPL was won  based on one person putting $900 into a PPL distributorship.  One!  The jury gave the ambulance chasing lawyers about $10 million.  PPL will appeal and no doubt kick the ambulance chasing scumbags into the next century.  Other non MLM companies sell the same package as PPL why no class action suits on them?  They aren’t publicly traded with high value stock! Ed. Note: Mumble, mumble - tort reform! Idiot class action suits like this! http://www.thestreet.com/_tscrss/stocks/melissadavid/10253221.html

TRIM INTL. -  WOW - WRONG CROWD!
5 Jan 2006 – It pays to subscribe to our newsletter or search the WatchDog.  Back on 18 May 2004 –  there was a joint Investigation by MLM Truth and MLM WatchDog.  On earnings claims... It turns out they were being generated by Trivita Distributors who were used to pitching $10k packages for Trivita.    They decided that they could make more money with Trim and pulled the $10k stunt over at Trim.  They were forced to cease.   Then the world gets more convoluted  The latest complaints last month came from people wanting their money back from Trim.  Turns out they were joining the Diamond Scam in Canada and wanted their money out for that.  What a world!
