RBI cautions people against money circulation schemes

RBI Circular about "illegal Money Circulation Schemes".
"As you may be aware, fictitious lottery and money circulation schemes aimed at defrauding public have come to light from time to time. It is clarified that remittances in any form towards participation in lottery schemes is prohibited under Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999.
Further, these restrictions are also applicable to remittances for participation in lottery-like schemes functioning under different names, such as money circulation scheme or remittances for the purpose of securing prize money/awards etc. We invite a reference in this connection to a Press Release on the subject dated December 7, 2007 issued by the Reserve Bank of India (copy enclosed).

Do not fall for high rate of interest on deposits offered by fly by night operators

The other day I have seen an advertisements in the classifieds of an English daily newspaper. Of course, these classifieds are the ground for many fraudulent schemes and the advertisements are accepted by the mamagements only to make money. They never care to verify whether they are legal or not.
The advertisement I am referring to has invited people to invest Rs. one hundred thousand with the company and earn Rs. 1,250 every day for one hundred days. That means, the investor would get a return of Rs. 25,000 on his investment of Rs. 100,000 in one hundred days. I immediately called the company to find out what they are going to do with the money. A person told me that the company would invest the funds in the Forex Market and the profits would be distributed to the investors. I wanted to know whether the company had the permission from the Reserve Bank of India to mobilise deposits from public. He immediately cut the call.
This is how these fraudsters are cheating people. There is no guarantee for the funds deposited by people and the company may vanish without a trace after collecting several millions of rupees. People would be left high and dry with no one to complain. They would have to run from pillar to post to get back their deposits. After filing criminal case against them, they have to wait for the court verdict which would take several years and they may get back only 30 or 40 per cent of their deposits.
My fellow Indians! Do not fall for high rate of interest offered by these fly by night operators.

How social fabric is getting damaged due to Amway-like companies

It is already mentioned how a number of fraudulent companies have been luring the gullible people to join their schemes. With the bait of easy and quick money, people generally attracted and lose their hard-earned money. Since all these schemes are pre-planned and pre-meditated, few people venture to lodge a police complaint, forget about discussing it with their friends or relatives. That is the real tragedy.
While some people keep on propagating that a lot of money could be earned through such schemes showcasing a handful of people, millions of people who burnt their fingers prefer to remain silent. That is the bigger tragedy.
The biggest tragedy is people who lost their money in these fraudulent schemes after they were introduced by their friends or relatives, never trust them in future. That is how the social fabric of our society is being damaged.
The remedy is to encourage the losers to file criminal cases against such companies leaving aside their friends and relatives. But the problem is they never realise that they lost their money due to the fraudulent scheme. Morever, they are told that because of their inefficiency they lost their money. They are also not aware that there is an enactment called the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978. Even several advocates are also not aware of that enactment.
Be it Amway, Herbalife, Forever Living Products or lesser known indigenous companies, they all work alike and cheat people at large.
That is why there is a need to bring awareness among people about these fraudulent schemes of various companies.

Amway apologists conspicuous by their absence

Amway apologists in general and IBOFB in particular is not seen around defending the dubious perennial business opportunity of Amway these days. It seems he is tired of defending the crooks who have been cheating the gullible all over world.
Come out you apologists to say something stupid to get banged again by our Joe Cool or some one.
It seems the IBOFB has no comment about the rice trader of Andhra Pradesh who tried the same model of Amway business but could not make it forever. Hypocrites of world unite you have nothing to lose but shame.

Inspired by Amway. crooks move around unabashed

A rice trader in a small town of Ponnuru in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh was inspired by the dubious business model of Amway and he started his own version. He asked his clients to buy 50 kilograms of rice at a rate whichwas well above the market price and told them to bring in more members to get attractive commission.
First, people hesitated to buy rice at that price, say Rs. 1400 for 50 kilograms of rice when its market price is only Rs. 650. However, after hearing the attractive commission the trader offered to rope in more members they jumped in. First they purchased the rice and asked their friends and relatives to purchase the same. However, since it is a small town, the number of purchasers dwindled very soon and they could not rope in more from other places. And many were skeptical of the infinite chain. The business was wounded up soon. However, it was the trader who went all the way to his Bank with a wide grin.
Soon, Amway would face the closure since people are realising that it is a swindle. That is why Amway is trying even harder to 'recruit' i.e. rope in more people into its racket. The one billion population of India is very attractive to these crooks and there is no dearth of daydreamers who want to become rich overnight.
This is precisely the reason for trying to bring awareness among people not to fall prey to the machinations of these crooks. I have great faith in our people's ability to think and to realise that Amway's 'business opportunity' is a myth.

Writ against PACL admitted in AP High Court

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday admitted a writ petition in the larger interest of public. The writ petition submitted by a journalist appealed the High Court to order the police to reopen a criminal case against a fraudulent company, PACL (India) Ltd aka Pearls India. The police for the reasons best known to them closed the criminal case against the company on the pretext of a Mistake of Fact.
The writ petition wanted to know the details of the Mistake of Fact. After elaborately discussing the writ petition, the Division Bench comprising Justice C V Nagarjuna Reddy and Justice Meena Kumari served notices to the Police Officials and the PACL (India) Ltd.
A glance at the facts of the case reveals that the PACL (India) Ltd, a Jaipur, Rajastan-based registered company has been illegally mobilising deposits from public without any permission from the Reserve Bank of India. Moreover, the company is offering hefty commission to the twelve-level from agent to the Executive Member. In effect, all the members in the 12-level hierarchy share up to 30 per cent of the amount collected from public. This is nothing but illegal money circulation scheme.
Above all, the company claims that it is into real estate business. It offers land to people for the deposits it had collected. Though the company's prospectus claims that it would allot a plot to the depositors within 270 days after payment of the deposit, it never allotted any land to any depositor so far. In fact, the Company has not sufficient land in its possession to allot plots to all its depositors. The clause on the deposit bond states that the money would be paid back after due date. If it is for the piece of land, why should there be maturity date of deposit.
These are glaringly visible to the police or to any ordinary mortal. Still, the police shut their eyes and closed the criminal case against the company.
Now, the police have to answer to the High Court what Mistake of Fact led to the closure of the criminal case.

Consequences of Amway business is far serious

In view of our smug Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson's steadfast pretence of moral and intellectual authority, it seems rather appropriate that the English noun, Mafia, comes from the Sicillian adjective, mafiusu, meaning- aggressive boasting, bragging, swaggering.
Sadly, the American Mafia really does exist. It can trace its origins to 19th. century Sicily where it was famously once described as a 'sect' or 'cult of thieves.'
Despite a growing mountain of evidence, according to our smug Mr. Steadson, to suggest that organizations like the 'Mafia,' the second 'KKK', etc. really exist(ed) and that latter-day, heavily-camouflaged, crimogenic organizations like 'Amway' also really exist and have been constructed using essentially identical mystifying, esoteric structures as those employed by the leaderships of the 'Mafia,' the second 'KKK etc.', is as whacky as suggesting that that the Earth is secretly controlled by evil extra-terrestrials.
Fortunately, your readers know that 'Amway' is a labyrinth of counterfeit 'companies' offering a counterfeit 'Business Opportunity' with an (effectively) 100% failure-rate, but with deeply-deluded core-adherents who unconsciously accept that a miraculous method for multiplying money really exists, and that by 'Exactly Duplicating the 100% Positive Mental Attitude' of their leadership, and by excluding everyone and everything that is 'Negative,' anyone can achieve 'Total Financial Freedom in 2-5 years.'
Again, if it wasn't for the serious consequences of 'Amway', then the organization and its swaggering apologists, would be nothing more than a sick joke.

Comparisons between Amway and Freemasonry is endless

Prof. Blakey's 'Amway' report explains at length that, exactly as in the Mafia, although secondary members of the DeVos and Van Andel clans (particularly wives and children), have ostensibly occupied the highest positions of management in the 'Amway' organization, when they were subjected to detailed questioning in court, they were unable to give intelligble answers to the most simple questions regarding the functioning of the corporate structures they were supposed to run.
Up until recently, it has been a matter of public record that both the founders of 'Amway' were '33rd. Degree Freemasons.' This information was widely-available on the Net without any challenge to its authenticity for many years.
At one time the 'Amway Corp.' acquired a 'Masonic Temple' in Ada Michigan and transformed, and expanded, it into a Hotel, but retaining the 'Masonic' façade. Apparently, it is absolutely forbidden by the ancient rules of 'Freemasonry' for any 'Sacred' building(s) to be transferred into 'Profane' hands or to any association run exclusively by 'Profane' individuals.
'Amway' own jargon has borrowed 'Masonic' key-words and images. A prime example being how adherents always speak of 'Building the Business' (i.e. recruiting) and of 'Visualizing Dreams and Goals in life' (a form of secular prayer used within 'Fraternal' secret societies).
'Amway Networks' correspond to 'Masonic Chapters'.
In 'Amway' everything, and everyone, is systematically divided into 'Negative v Positive'. In 'Freemasonry,' it's 'Sacred v Profane'.
'Amway Diamonds' correspond to 'Grand Masters.' 'Direct Distributors' to 'Fellows of the Craft'. The highest initiates wear emblems (particularly on rings) as external signs of their moral and intellectual authority (but, only to fellow initiates).
Just as in 'Freemasonry,' the object of all Amway' initiates is to climb in parallel pyramids of obedience and secret knowledge in order to attain a place in a form of future, secure Utopian existence that is exemplified by the highest initiates who are the perfect role-models for the lower initiates to copy.
The list of obvious comparisons between 'Amway' and 'Freemasonry' is endless.
Interestingly, it has now become the policy of the 'Amway' Ministry of Truth to deny that the remaining founder of the organization is, or was, a 'Freemason.'
As the Steadson robot is programmed by the 'Amway' Ministry of Truth, his latest reaction is hardly surprising.

Amway is new variant of KKK of early 90s

The key to understanding how 'Amway' functions, and how its sanctimonious leaders have so far escaped imprisonment, lies in the organization's own esoteric structure. Remember, the original joint-instigators of 'Amway' were white male Protestants and '33rd. Degree Freemasons'. The new generation are no different.
'Amway' is by no means unique. Indeed, there are many examples of pernicious /criminogenic, cultic organizations that have been constructed using perversions of traditional esoteric structures in order to prevent, and /or divert, investigation and isolate their self-appointed leaderships from liability. Probably the most notorious example being the second 'Ku Klux Klan', which, at the height of its grotesque activities during the early 1920s, claimed 6 millions adherents in the USA and 'Chapters' in every State. The second 'KKK' has also been described as a giant pyramid scam. Countless millions of dollars were generated for a handful of individuals who hid behind a mystifying labyrinth of privately-controlled, limited-liability, commercial-companies. Recruitment was by invitation only. Adherents were obliged to pay a nominal joining-up fee. They then were obliged to continue buying various publications, recordings, esoteric accessories and tickets to meetings, in order to climb in the group's hierarchy. The leadership of the second 'KKK' (who were exclusively white, male Protestants) steadfastly pretended moral and intellectual authority. The organization suddenly fell apart in 1925, when the 'Indiana Grand Dragon,' David Stevenson (a sanctimonious politician who had campaigned for 'prohibition and the protection of Protestant womanhood'), was imprisoned for raping, mutilating and murdering a young woman, Madge Oberholtzer, in a drunken orgy. Stevenson was so angry when his former friend, and Governor of Indiana, refused to help him that he released a list of public officials who had all been bought by the 'KKK.'

Amway always tries to cover up its criminal activity

The UK commercial regulators know that a corporate officer of 'Amway UK Ltd. ' and one from the 'UK Direct Selling Association', committed perjury when they submitted written depositions to the UK High Court. Yet, mysteriously, no complaint was made by the UK commercial regulators' legal representatives to the Judge about these lies.
'Amway's' corporate officer deliberately lied when she steadfastly pretended to have been unaware that high-level 'Amway' initiates in the UK were making false claims about how much money UK participants were likely to make from 'Amway.' She also deliberately lied when she claimed to be unaware that the major financial activity within the ranks of 'Amway' (profitting a few high-level 'Amway' initiates in the USA) was actually the sale of (apparently 'unauthorized') books, recordings and tickets to meetings, etc.
Even though 'Amway's' lawyers claimed that 'Amway UK' had not been responsible, they still promised the UK High Court that, henceforth, no false income claims would be made by any 'Amway' initiate and that no unauthorized materials would be sold. However, the same situation had existed for 34 years without any internal or external regulation whatsoever. This criminal activity was first highlighted in a UK magazine article, 'Hidden Persuaders,' by Tony Thompson, published in the early 1990s. At that time, 'Amway's' lawyers had even threatened a lawsuit if the article was published.
In other words, more than 15 years ago, agents of 'Amway' maliciously tried to cover up the same criminal activity which its corporate officer recently pretended to be unaware of.

Hooded man, IBOFB proves Amway is a cult

The hooded man has finally agreed that High Court judges in the USA are intelligent enough to throw the cases against Amway. Funnily, he does not accept the same parametre to the Indian judges who found fault with the business model of Amway India illegal. Of course, he did not elaborate what he felt about Indian judges.
It shows that the IBOFB is hell bent on defending Amway blindly at any cost throwing all reasons out. David Brear rightly calls it Amway cult. If it is not a cult, nobody would defend such a bogus company with all might.
Now the readers of this blog all over world, as far as I know in twenty countries, know well what exactly lies behind the hooded mask.
Wake up my brethren and sisters all over world to say no this monster of a company which has been siphoning out our hard-earned money and lining its pockets. Let us collectively throw this fraudulent company in Atlantic.
Come Join hands. Let us work together.

Amway mob's devious tactics notorious

Mr. Steadson, of course, is a provocative liar. He is the de facto agent of US-based racketeers - a latter-day Lord Haw Haw reciting a reality-inverting script. The poor boy is attempting to divert your readers attention. In reality, Steadson knows full-well that only one 'Amway' corporate structure faced a civil investigation and trial in the UK. This counterfeit 'direct selling' company hid an (effectively) 100% failure-rate for its participants, and had itself lost more than $25 millions in the 8 years prior to investigation. 'Amway UK Ltd.' only survived compulsory closure under UK insolvency rules, because its highly-paid team of lawyers (including a former Deputy Director of the UK Serious Fraud Office) solemnly promised a UK High Court Judge that the company would, henceforth, comply with UK law designed to prohibit illegal lotteries. These lawyers were paid with cash that 'Amway UK' declared to have come from 'Amway S. Korea.' However, the UK commercial regulators knew that 'Amway UK' has been the front for a secondary racket which has removed hundreds of millions of pounds from the UK economy during the previous 35 years. This secondary racket (the sale of books, recordings, tickets to meetings, etc., on the pretext that these materials contain the secret to achieving success in 'Amway') was not the subject of the recent UK investigation and trial. Indeed, the UK commercial regulators were prevented by their own rules from straying into any form of criminal investigation.
Nonetheless, the majority of the cash stolen from UK participants in 'Amway' passed through the hands of Messrs. Jerry Scriven and Patrick Gregory (two British 'Amway Diamonds'), on its way to Dexter Yager (an American 'Amway Diamond'). When the UK civil investigation commenced, Scriven and Gregory were immediately cut adrift by 'Amway' to divert criminal investigation. The leaders of the 'Amway' mob have followed this devious tactic in the past, most-notably in France in the 1980s.

Amway parasites get out of my country

It has been made many times clear that my life is open and one glance at my profile reveals what I am. Still, IBOFB insists I should answer his meaningless and worthless question. I have also made it clear that I do not hide behind pseudonyms and masks. I am straight forward person and do not live like a parasite. These Amyay crooks are parasites who are eating away the gullible people's hard-earned money.
That is why I call upon my countrymen to throw these crooks out of country and punish those Indian bloodsuckers for helping them. I hope people would realise the danger of promoting such companies and come out openly by filing criminal cases against such companies.
Sadly, many Indians, for that matter people all over world, generally prefer to silently suffer the loss they incurred after joining Amway or other such fraudulent companies.
People all over the world join hands to expose the dubious ways of Amway, Herbalife, Forever Living Products and such other companies, you have nothing to lose.

Evidence suggests Amway is a pernicious racket

I now observe that our smug Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson has taken it upon himself to rewrite Prof. Blakey's report. Typically, the devious boy has substituted the word, 'supplemented,' for 'adjusted'. Thus, implying that Prof. Blakey had wanted to leave the possibility of changing his opinion rather than actually just expanding it. No matter what these bleating 'Amway's' apologists steadfastly pretend to be reality, Blakey has never altered his opinion, and neither his reasoning nor the factual material upon which his reasoning was based, have ever been refuted.
Given his conclusions, Blakey's report is remarkably fair in tone. Indeed, he deliberately refused to pass judgement on whether the 'Amway' leadership had broken the RICO Act, apparently assuming that the FBI would investigate the matter and that a criminal trial would ensue.
Despite a mountain of evidence that 'Amway' is a pernicious racket and that its instigators have corrupted the democratic system in the USA, at no time have the 'Amway' mob ever faced a rigorous criminal investigation in the USA for breaching the RICO Act, let alone come to trial.

IBOFB and his gang have nothing to say substantial

As you know, our smug Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson always attempts to brand all free-thinking individuals challenging the authenticity of the 'Amway' myth as 'an isolated group of ranting and delusional liars.' He's even accused you of starting Corporate Frauds Watch because you are a 'Communist.' At all times, the bleating little flock of 'Amway' apologists pretend absolute moral and intellectual authority, despite the fact that it is they who are under contract to a criminogenic, cultic organization (run by billionaire racketeers) and who are educationally unqualified.
As I have previously stated, the one (highly-qualified) 'Amway' critic whom 'Amway' apologists never seem to want to mention has been Prof. G. Robert Blakey (b. 1936). When I have mentioned him, the Steadson robot's systematic response is to denigrate Blakey a 'paid hack.' Notice, however, that Steadson doesn't risk calling Blakey a 'ranting, delusional liar.'
In reality, Blakey qualified as an American attorney in 1960. He then joined the US Dept. of Justice and became a Special Attorney in the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section of the Criminal Division of that Dept. When Robert Kennedy was appointed Attorney General, Blakey was part of the Justice Dept.'s major effort to prosecute organized crime members, corrupt political figures and co-opted trade union officials. Blakey stayed at the Justice Dept. until 1964 when he was appointed Prof. of Law at Notre Dame University. In that capacity, he acted as Consultant on Organized Crime to the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice. In 1969, Blakey was appointed Chief Counsel of the Subcommittee on Criminal Laws and Procedures of the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. John Little McClellan. At this time, Blakey drafted the Organized Crime Control Act (known as the RICO Act). He went on to become Prof. of Law and Director of the Cornell Institute on Organized Crime at the Cornell Law School 1973-1980. Blakey was also Special Counsel to the US Judiciary Committee chaired by Sen. Joseph Biden (recently-elected as 47th Vice-President of the USA). Blakey is currently Prof. of Law at the Notre Dame Law School, and he is generally aknowledged to be the foremost authority on the Raketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act 1970 (RICO).
So exactly what did Prof. Blakey have to say about 'Amway?'
'It is my opinion that the Amway business is run in a manner that is parallel to that of major organized crime groups, in particular the Mafia. The structure and function of major organized crime groups, generally consisting of enterprises engaging in patterns of legal and illegal activity, was the prototype forming the basis for Federal and State legislation that I have been involved in drafting. The same structure and function, with associated enterprises engaging in patterns of legal and illegal activity is found in the Amway' business.'
Remember this is only the opening paragraph of Prof. Blakey's confidential 'Amway' Report. The full text can be easily found on the Net.
It is no wonder that our smug Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson and his heel-clicking little 'Amway' gang have nothing substantial to say on this matter.

'Amway should be compared to American Mafia'

From my previous experience with the clueless actors playing the 'corporate officers' in the British production of the long-running, American, black comedy entitled, 'Amway, The World's Largest Direct Selling Company,' it doesn't surprise me in the least that their wooden, Indian counterparts failed to turn up to face reality in Hyderabad, but, instead, cleared off to visit their billionaire script-writers in Michigan.
As I have stated all along, the counterfeit 'Direct Selling' company known as 'Amway India Enterprises' is merely part of a mystifying labyrinth of corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, activities which has been maliciously set up in order to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate the instigators of 'Amway' from liability. Well-paid puppets like Mr. William Pinckney usually have no idea about what really lies behind their own roles. If, and when, this typically arrogant 'Amway' fall guy turns up in court, he will only try to recite from his tedious 'Amway' script, but the killer question remains the same:
Mr. Pinckney, exactly what proportion of your counterfeit company's so-called 'direct sales' in India have been authentic, external retail transactions (i.e. to persons who are not agents of 'Amway' ) ?
However, I am not the only person to have identified 'Amway' as a global criminogenic organization fronted by spineless patsies who have little, or no, idea of what they really represent. Professor G. Robert Blakey (Dept. of Law, Notre Dame University, Chicago) was contracted by Proctor and Gamble to write a confidential report on 'Amway'. Blakey (who was Chief Counsel to the House Select Committeee which enquired into the assasinations of JFK and Martin Luther King, and who drafted the RICO, federal anti-racketeering, Act 1970) is considered to be America's leading expert on organized crime. His confidential report on 'Amway' was used in a successful lawsuit in which 'Amway' agreed to pay a millions of dollars to P&G. The document was subsequently stolen from Blakey's office and posted on the Net without its author's permission. In this, Blakey states quite clearly that 'Amway' should be compared to the American Mafia. Indeed, that's his opening salvo.
Perhaps a copy of Blakey's damning report would be of assistance to the Judges in Hyderabad? Obviously, this explains why the name G. Robert Blakey is missing from our smug Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson's list of 'Well-Known Amway Critics'
Unfortunately, Prof. Blakey (who is bound by the rules of his profession) has, so far, refused to make any further comment about 'Amway.'

Many Amway accused left country when a criminal case pending against them

A sizable number of accused persons in a criminal case involving Amway India's notorious business model which was found to be illegal, left India without even obtaining permission from the judicial court or the CID of Andhra Pradesh.
In a petition to the Chief Metropolitan Court, Nampally, Hyderabad, the counsel for Mr William Pinckney, the key accused in the scam, submitted that the accused has to attend an urgent business meeting in the USA and hence he did not turn up for the trial. But what he conveniently forgot was that he should obtain the permission before leaving the country.
So is the case with other accused who were absent on the trial day. It is apt to question the CID of Andhra Pradesh whether they had given the accused permission to go abroad. Why they had not impounded the passports of the criminals to prevent them from abusing their passports. Let us wait and see what would be the answer from the CID.

Spanish Ministry investigating Herbalife for possible links to liver problems

The Ministry for Health is investigating possible links between the dietary products and liver toxicity The Spanish Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs has published a report recently which looks at an investigation started to try and establish the cause of nine cases of hepatic poisoning which were registered between 2003 and 2007 and possibly linked to the use of products from Herbalife Internacional España S.L.
Similar cases have been reported from other EU countries and in Iceland, Switzerland and Israel, totaling 37 in number. The dietary products for weight loss and well being are well known around the world thanks to the dubious selling techniques of the company.
Today’s statement from the Spanish Ministry of Health says that proving any link between using these products and the cases is not easy to establish, although in some of the examples it seems a the link is more likely. As the products are sold directly to the home in most cases, the Health Ministry suggests that any person who thinks a product may be causing them any prejudicial effect, to contact a doctor and the health authorities.
The Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products has already sent out these and other recommendations to pharmacists and doctors across the country.
More information from the Ministry of Health helpline 901 400 100 or in Spanish at
