GMT 101 BAD - TOO MANY COMPLAINTS
25 June 2003 -- The MLM Watchdog is still getting complaints that people are not being paid what they were promised with the rolling Matrix 2up GMT101 used. The company is at fault for letting promoters run free. The Dallas Better Business Bureau Says, "It has been the subject of complaints stating that that substantial, quick profits were not paid to participants, contrary to what they had been told. The Bureau is concerned that prospects have not always been told that the only way people make money in the plan is for someone else to buy the company's products." Ed. Note: You are right BBB!
The MLM WatchDog is getting too many complaints go here:
PASSPORT TO ADVENTURE!
26 June 2003 -- A trip back in time to a travel voucher scam. See the word voucher? That is a piece of paper and is used often in a scam - like "tokens" in Meridian Art. PTA was hit by Monterrey, Ca. Ag and the State of Florida. This fast mover went down hard. Can you sell vouchers? No!

23 June 2003 -- Offshore money lawyer David Tedder had a bad day in court last week. He has been connected with several pyramid scheme scams such as IHI, My Giving Tree and DebtZero. Reports are that some of the leading Pyramid scheme scamsters have individually used him. Look for other names to appear as he plea bargains jail time!
EBAY PARTICIPATING IN RESTRAINT OF TRADE PRICE FIXING
21 June 2003 -- Hsin Ten Enterprises (MLM Chi Machine) has suckered Ebay into price fixing. Hsin Ten Enterprises claimed that used "Sun Harmony Chi Machines". couldn't be sold on Ebay They got used machine banned by Ebay by claiming putting them on Ebay violated trademark and copyright laws. Ha ha! Gee there are a lot of Mercedes sold on Ebay with a lot more class than Chi Machines. Mercedes doesn't sucker Ebay into restraint of trade. Don't worry they have company! Morinda filed a suit against a website for selling at wholesale and reportedly has web police check Ebay. Sea Silver said you had to sell at retail. Other MLM companies even prevent their products from being sold online --- now see why MLM price fixing is illegal restraint of trade! http://www.mlmwatchdog.com/RC_1975.html
DIRE THREATS FROM SEA SILVER DISTRIBUTORS
21 June 2003 Yes, I started a file on Sea Silver for their price fixing (93 F.T.C. 618 FTC vs AMWAY) a month ago with complaints I had had against Sea Silver.. I also had a secondary file on the claims that Sea Silver made. I had started the due diligence process of contacting the company through top distributors for the company position on my issues. This allows the company to give me feed back on the problems that I see (from almost 40 years of experience). Before this process was completed (the founder of Sea Silver had called me, I had not had time to call back until after the FTC hit). The FTC locked their doors. I did a good and well balanced reporting of the news and even said "WHY DIDN'T SS GET THE SAME BREAK AS HEART BAR (see watchdog below) All good and well until today a gang of Distributors of Sea Silver started calling me with THREATS! Things like You are not going to survive your **** about Sea Silver! One said "Sea Silver stops cancer -- we will kill you." Wow! This takes me back to the days of "Equinox death threats" oh yes "Global Prosperity." More to follow. I checked my matched pair of Smith & Wesson 659's went out a kicked the gate guard's Dobermans to make sure they were mad. OK A*****'s. Where these from competing companies that wanted to FOOL ME? No! The two I caught on the phone - I whapped them with complan questions that only a SS. distributor would know! ---Mad Editor Rod
MORE FTC ACTION
17 June 2003 -- Heart Bar signs consent agreement with FTC on Heart Bar claims. Good way to settle, no shut down or seizures. Those that like the product still getting supplied. Question is, why wasn't the same done with Sea Silver below? http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2003/06/unither.htm
FTC HITS SEA SILVER
17 June 2003 -- Sea Silver was temporarily shut down by the FTC. The FTC wants sales material (including websites), labels and all associated agenda changed. I talked to Sea Silver indicate they intend to comply and expect to be back in operation with changed sales material soon. I think that this is a result of FTC web searches on the Kevin Trudeau & Barefoot with the Coral Calcium FTC hit. Your testimony on a website can incriminate your company! Be warned! More details on this hit >>>>>> http://www.mlmwatchdog.com/RC_FTC_HITS
MICHIGAN MLM IS GOOD - NO HITS

NETWORKER2000 (N2K) HIT BY ALABAMA
15 June 2003 -- Networker2000.com an investment scheme was hit by their home state of Alabama. Theoretically they were doing options trades for members. The intent may have been legit but when the trading funds accounts took a dive they started using new member's money to pay off older members. Can you spell Ponzi! Technically since people that recruited the new members collected membership money it was a Pyramid Scheme Ponzi! This was not MLM as they claimed!
FTC HITS CORAL CALCIUM SUPREME
15 June 2003 -- The restraining order AX FALLS! Kevin Trudeau; Robert Barefoot; and Shop America, violated the FTC Act by claiming, falsely and without substantiation, that Coral Calcium Supreme can cure cancer and other disease. This is about the 3rd restraining order Trudeau has attracted! Not good when the FTC seizes your money! Read all about it!

PYRAMID SCHEME SCAM SHUTS DOWN ISLANDS!
9 June 2003 -- Australian banks in the Solomon Islands shut down country's entire financial system because of Pyramid Scheme Fraud! . Scamsters running the "Family Charitable Fund," threatened to blow up the banks and kill bankers if their scam money wasn't released! The Solomon's Government eventually stepped in and provided security after commerce in the Pacific island chain came to a screeching halt! Ed Note: I reported on this fraudulent pyramid scheme that started in the U.S. over 6 years ago. Evidently after we helped stomp out the scam in the U.S. the crooks exported the pyramid scheme scam.
New Image International and Liquidity International Merge
5 June 2003 -- Two companies have merged resources to maximize growth and long-term stability. New Image International, a 10-year old, established network marketing company headquartered in Georgetown, Kentucky, has merged forces with Liquidity International Inc. based in Dallas, Texas. Ed.

911 URGENT -- PAY PAL SCAM SPAM
2 June 2003 -- Many of you have Pay Pal accounts! Scam Spam! Danger Fraud! Sender is "Paysecurity." A spam email with the Pay Pal logo etc. says your account is out of date.

GASUP USA COMPLAINTS -- PENN. AG ONLY WANTS HARD COPY!
29 May 2003 -- Company "pullbacks" on commissions paid are not making people happy. It is legal to recoup commissions paid to upline when sales are reversed.

SEE THIS EMAIL IF YOU WANT TO FILE A COMPLAINT TO THE PENN STATE AG - NO EMAIL~ Stay tuned!

NUTRITION FOR LIFE BANKRUPTCY
27 May 2003 -- On the 20th the Judge US Bankruptcy Court ordered relief under Chapter 11 for NFLI. The Judge asked what their plans were. The NFLI attorneys said the Company would continue to seek investors for a few more weeks, if not it looked ???. So right now your editor would say that NFLI has to come up with investors (that they haven't been able to do) or file Chapter 7 and liquidate the company within weeks. NFLI laid off more staff (prudent thing to do). Reportedly the attorney's for the Plaintiffs said with the attitude of the Judge that NFLI would be held to meeting guidelines. Sad, sad thing for the industry and many NFLI distributors who have not been paid !
THE JUDGE JAILS TAX PEOPLE
25 May 2003 -- For updates on Micheal Cooper and The Tax People (TTP) go visit Steve Fry. He worked on a story on TTP before they got hit. Cooper lied to him about something and Steve cooly wrote the truth, exposing TTP. Steve is the reporter on the scene that covered The Tax People shut down by the Feds and Kansas. Steve called me the day the law rolled in. He sat in his car reporting, just outside the yellow crime scene tape! He would say, "Rod there goes another file cabinet! 6 computers, 18 boxes etc!" Steve sounded like a sportscaster! Sad day for distributors that didn't listen to the MLM Watchdog when I kept asking, "why buy 3 tax packages in a Trinary (a Trinary is a binary with a 3rd leg) when you can only use one!"
FTC SWEEP HITS 2 REALLY DUMB CHAIN LETTERS
24 May 2003 -- Two different cases against participants in an e-mail chain letter scheme that promised participants significant earnings, pledged that the scam was legitimate, and urged recipients to contact the FTC's Associate Director for Marketing Practices, who they claimed would vouch for the legality of the illegal schemes. (Ed. Note: DUMB!) The FTC stopped the illegal schemes, and settlements with the defendants scared the heck out of them!!
SPAMMERS HIJACKING YOUR COMPUTER?
24 May 2003 -- The New York Times reported in an article that more than 200,000 computers have been hijacked to send spam! A common target is home with hi-speed Web access. They sneak in and install email forwarding programs. You don't notice except your computer slows down.
YOUR COMPANY HIT BY FTC?
20 May 2003 -- The FTC is operating in secret. It is building a case against your good company! It could happen to the best!
SB722 AFTER MLM NUTRITIONALS
18 May 2003 First we get a bill in the house to help MLM (see below H.R. 1220). Now we have a Senate bill (SB722) that wants nutritionals tracked like deadly drugs. You can bet the FDA is behind this! Asprin (an over the counter product) kills far more people than all nutritionals put together. The FDA hates the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act (DSHEA) passed in 1994 and will do any sneaky thing they can to stab it. Meantime scan down below and see how another drug that was approved under rigorous scrutiny of the FDA killed people. Let the FDA clean up drugs before they screw up nutritionals that have been around doing good for years. OH yes, the FDA fought tooth and nail against radical things like vitamin C, B and others. In the case of spina bifida they are probably responsible for 1,000's of cripples in this country because they fought promoting vitamin B for pregnant mothers (The Texas Dept of Health was worse)!
GET YOUR CONTRACT RIGHT BEFORE JOINING!
17 May 2003 Draft of a request letter to modify the company's contract before you join the company! It never hurts to ask! If you don't ask your commissions may get changed and your distributorship lost from false acqusations.
NEW MLM BILL IN CONGRESS - FULL COPY
12 May 2003 -- here is a full copy of the MLM bill introduced in Congress recently. Read carefully and send your friends over we have to support this bill to get rid of a lot more Pyramid Schemes.
PAY PAL INSULTS MLM -- THEIR MISTAKES!
12 May 2003 - - Pay Pal now says that it will not take transactions for MLM companies. The reason is their mistakes in signing up scams disguised as MLM. They partially admit it with saying "Any structure in which the value of the transaction is significantly greater than value of the goods or services traded is prohibited". That is their way of saying that they goofed. I know they did because I saw a lot of trash with Pay Pal accounts. They are now owned by Ebay and with all the flack Ebay is getting (most scams on the web) they must need to clean up their act. Internet Gold goes the other way saying that it is an essential tool for large networks and gifting programs! Wow is that bold!
WORLD WIDE SCAM PH NOT INVOLVED?
8 May 2003 -- I GRILLED CEO Kathy Seitan today about Power Health being behind the attacks on World Wide Scam. It turns out that nobody at Power Health knows what a Denial Of Service (DOS) attack is. It would be hard to direct one without knowing something about the technology. They are investigating the re-direct mentioned in the article below. Stay tuned for this evolving mystery!
NEW FEDERAL MLM LEGISLATION PENDING
8 May 2003 -- Great Federal legislation Introduced! Representative Joe Barton (R-TX) introduced H.R. 1220 to enact a clear law banning pyramid scheme (quick jail time) and giving legitimate MLM companies a fair shake! It is modeled on the new MLM South Dakota law just passed and looks good! It would allow slamming pyramid schemes to the ground quickly. Good News! It would also allow for reasonable self consumption by distributors and family with required "by backs" to prevent front or back end loading. Great! More coming including a copy of the law!
WORLDWIDE SCAM WHACK
5 May 2003 -- One alert WatchDog reporter noted that after the Worldwidescam.com was bombed again that Google had an interesting listing for "World Scams". Under World Scams Teraformahealth.com/worldwide brings up a page:

Then that page QUICKLY redirects into http://www.mypowerhealth.com/ They must have known Bob Burtis www.Worldwidescam.com was going to be whacked down. I didn't always agree with him, but figure he has/had the right to publish. Somebody spent so00000 much time doingng that page! They might as well have taken credit for whacking Bob. Maybe they are?
SARS! --- THE ONLY SURVIVAL MAY BE MLM
5 May 2003 Editorial! Once again the American Pharmaceutical industry has fallen behind. They have been developing big $$$$$ drugs like Viagra and time release Prozac. It seems they forgot continuing to research on viruses and drug resistant bacteria. SARS is just a taste of things to come. There have been suggestions that the Drug industry be controlled by the government. NO! Don't think so, with the track record of the FDA! Immune boosters are poo-pooed by Drug companies and the Government. Your had an imune booster cure me of a serious aliment that medicine gave up on. Get some, don't tell your mother company if they don't. Here is an "almost" complete list of MLM companies selling immune boosters, Essentially Yours, 4Life, Legacy USA, Immunocal, Kmatol, and Pharmanex.
MLM SUCKS! SAYS A SCAM?
5 May 2003 -- Unbelievable! A benefactor scam whacks away at MLM! The Weblifeline says, "MLM is too slow and takes too much work". They solved the MLM problem by starting a benefactoring scam. Benefactor programs are the first cousin to gifting programs! No products of consequence, just money and more money. Read the junk on this site!
COMPLAINTS SOUTHERN HERITAGE
4 MAY 2003 -- Oh-no. More Poor distributors! Termination complaints! Why? Mixed reports about this company! Visit the
GLOBAL DAILY PAY ISN'T!
31 April 2003 -- Complaints about Global Daily Pay not paying. With their convoluted matrix it could be one of 3 things: (1) everybody got confused and quit (2) Software didn't work for this convoluted shaky pay plan (3) It was a pyramid scheme and collapsed quicklyy! In any case it is generating complaints!
NUTRITION FOR LIFE HEARING POSTPONED -- NFLI EUROPE TAKEN OVER
29 April 2003 -- NFLI Bankruptcy hearing postponed until about the 14th of May per latest reports. Reports are that NFLI asked for the postponement. Mean time things are up in the air! The top NFLI Distributor in Europe Peter Lavery has taken over NFLI Europe (Headquartered in the UK). It appears the law there is a little faster when distributor checks aren't paid and the government receivers sold NFLI to Lavery. Great that the Distributors could be helped! Pherhaps the Queen could give him a knight hood!
WHY MLM WORKS BEST -- WORD OF MOUTH
28 April 2003 -- A brand new survey by Planet Feedback reinforces that word of mouth advertising is the best vehicle of all types of promotion. Top of the list was "WORD OF MOUTH" advertising >>> the major driving force behind true MLM. The study also noted that women were the major responders. Of course! Great support material!
COASTAL VACATIONS -- QUESTIONS
28 April 2003 -- We get a lot of questions about Coastal Vacations and their Aussie 2-up. Coastal got whacked by an Attorney General several years ago and diversified having only their distributors on the web. Coastal itself stays hidden. Illegal? Yes and no! Coastal charges $1295 for their biz opp package. Some 22 states have Business Opportunity laws that basically say, any amount over $500 (some are $200) on a Biz Op has to be registered in that state. So any state that a distributor or prospect lives in that has a biz op law the distributor needs to file (some post a bond) and have the prospect sign a disclosure statement of the full operations of the company. Not MLM? Some 13 states MLM laws say that inducing another person into a business opportunity makes it fall under MLM statutes, no levels mentioned. Ed. Note: I hate 2-up pay plans because they steal the efforts of the first two people a prospect brings in. Unless the new distributor is slam dunk hard core salesman they are basically cannon fodder for direct sales people that like to pop $1295 vacation packages and make a grand!
Also note that if someone tries to sign you in any regular MLM and wants you to fork out over $500 ask to see their Biz Op disclosures! Is this a pyramid scheme? I would like to call it one! If you have any complaints file them on the MLM Watchdog pyramid scheme complaint page!
MATRIX AND STRAIGHT LINE PYRAMIDS WHACKED
25 April 2003 -- Great Article from Bob Sullivan, MSNBC, on all the Pyramid Scheme Scams floating around on the Internet today. Fill up Matrixes and Fill up Straight line downlines are the darling of web scam artists. Notice (in the article) one scamster said he checked with his state attorney general and they said it was ok! FAT CHANCE Big Common Lie that is a big red flag to the MLM WatchDog! STOMP out SCAMS!
PRAY FOR A SIXPACK SCAM?
21 Apr 2003 -- Praying to fill a six pack in a money game? No! Praying that the law won't whack the scam too quickly and throw owners in the local jail! What a riot!
ROYAL BODY CARE AND FLANNIGAN SETTLE SUIT
21 Apr 2003 -- Royal Body Care sued product producer Patrick Flannagan after he defected to New Vision. Both parties have agreed to settle.

The price is in effect now! The price of bonds for each Province has not gone up -- Good!
A LAWYER TELLS WHAT TO DO
DISTRIBUTOR BILL OF RIGHTS IN DRA LIBRARY
NUTRITION FOR LIFE CHAPT. 11?
9 Apr 2003 -- Strong reports on the street that the company is going to file for Chapter 11. Creditors tried to put them into involuntary bankruptcy several weeks ago (still pending). Now the word is that NFLI is going to ask for Chapt. 11. Will the judge and creditors let them? Possibility of chapter 7?

8 Apr 2003 -- Back to early court rulings of MLM. You have the right to sell your distributorship! If a company wants to terminate you tell them MY PROPERTY! You have to have a fair and open due process to deprive you of your property!
MANUFACTURER -- VERTICAL DIVERSIFICATION INTO MLM

Baycol has been found to cause serious kidney problems and muscle pain and weakness. It has been banned by the FDA. If you took Baycol and want information, please click here for the class action suit.
TIME TAKES AFTER CORAL CALCIUM
7 April 2002 Time magazine attacked Barefoot the Coral Calcium promoter. I agree, many of the claims that Barefoot makes are wild, watch the FDA slam him. On the other hand, in the last 9 years I have seen Coral Calcium become a staple in health food stores and MLM. Why? CUSTOMERS buy it month after month. I know solid non-MLM folks that swear by it. Trace minerals + calcium must do something! I totally disagree on Barefoot pricing and checked today. One good MLM company = $20 a bottle, Sun Food health store cheapest $29, and of course the one the article talks about at $40 a bottle. Here is the story (remember Time is fighting for its life because of its liberal hyped stories so its turning into a smut rag)
YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST UNICITY SOLD
2 April 2003 - Roger and Victor Barnett are purchasing Unicity Network, International, from Royal Numico Inc. Initial reports are they plan on returning the company to a privately held corporation. The Barnet's started and own Blurberry's a fashion and clothing company, also Experian formerly TRW reporting systems, Gray Global inc. and many more corporations. Ed. Note: Sounds good to the WatchDog after the trauma the poor Distributors have gone through in the last few years. But consider this could be a buyer's game play to see if they can get their money back. NO MONEY CHANGED HANDS yet so the Barnetts may not have as much money as they want people to think. THIS IS A SOFT PROBE to see what the game is that they can play on the minds of these dumb MLMers. Time tells the truth.........ur Ed.
