Kasey Chang is undoubtedly a world authority on 'business opportunity' fraud in general, and the 'TVI Express' racket in particular, but (so far) even he has been unable to discover exactly who controls 'TVI Express.' http://hubpages.com/hub/TVI-
Express-is-an-international- scam . Personally, I strongly suspect that another, major, organized crime/cultic group is behind 'TVI Express.' The typical labyrinth of corporate structures which comprises the 'TVI Express' racket has been maliciously set up all around the globe to prevent, and divert, investigation and isolate its real beneficiaries from liability.
Kasey Chang is evidently a fan of the original 'Sherlock Holmes' stories. In his intellectually-rigorous deconstruction of the 'TVI Express' racket, Kasey Chang asks:
'Does any one read Sherlock Holmes? The classic tales by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not the movies. You may have come across "The Red-Headed League." It is a story that has particular significance to this topic... in the story, a man was employed by supposedly "The Red-Headed League", to do nothing. Sherlock Holmes looked through the evidence, and determined that the whole thing was simply a ploy to get the man out of his house, so a team of burglars can dig through the man's house and steal from the Bank of London's underground vault. It is a distraction. And that is what you have here: what TVI Express supporters call a "product" is a gimmick to disguise the fact that there really is no product.'
Thus, Kasey Chang is in broad agreement with our own analysis of 'business opportunity' fraud; for the effectively-unsaleable products, and/or services, which have been used for 50+ years by numerous gangs of 'Amway' copy-cat 'business opportunity' racketeers to camouflage essentially the same closed-market swindle and related advance fee fraud, are what we have described as 'wampum.' Indeed, 'business opportunity' racketeers might as well have offered their victims jars of fresh air. As 'Sherlock Holmes' famously observed:
'Once you have removed the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.'
One final footnote. The 'TVI Express' racketeers have been steadfastly pretending that their organization has the support of 'the world's richest man, Warren Buffet.' As Kasey Chang rightly observes, Forbes Magazine currently lists Carlos Slim Helu of Mexico as the world's richest man. Interestingly, the CIA began listing Colonel Gaddafi one of the world's richest individuals as long ago as the 1970s. Prior to the recent rebellion in Lybia, Colonel Gaddafi had control over a cash fortune estimated at $100 billion. However, since 1969, Colonel Gaddafi has been the effective owner of Lybia - a country which contains the world's ninth largest oil reserves with a current estimated value of up to $4 trillion.
