Amway deceived Indian officials

Your indian Judges must again be congratulated for their insight. They clearly see that all-manner of fake 'direct selling'companies like 'Amway India Enterprises', have been used to run illegal money circulation schemes camouflaged by (effectively) unsaleable products, and//or services. The corporate officers of these counterfeit companies have not only defrauded their recruits, but also the entire Indian people as represented by officials working for the democratically-elected Indian government. That said, the US-based racketeers lurking behind 'Amway India Enterprises' have maliciously set up their international labyrinth of (apparently independent) corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, enterprises, in order to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate themselves from liability. In other words, the corporate officers of 'Amway India Enterprises' have been little more than expendable dupes themselves. If, and when, they are brought before the Indian courts to face criminal charges, they will continue to deny reality and to bleat the same old puerile nonsense being fed to them by their bosses.
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, back in June 1994, obsequious ambassadors (sent by the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob) approached the Indian Union Ministry of Industry (Dept. of Industrial Development) bearing gifts. By steadfastly pretending affinity with officials (who, naturally, wanted to believe that all external investment creates employment), the ambassadors sought an agreement (renewable biannually) which simply paved the way for the creation a privately-controlled, unlimited-liability, commercial company, ‘Amway India Enterprises.’ As a subsidiary (entirely owned by its American parent company), the ambassadors meekly accepted that ‘Amway India Enterprises’ would be forbidden to manufacture or import. The proposed company would be permitted only to use its ‘Proven Multilevel Marketing Business Model’ to sell products sourced from local, independent, Indian manufacturers. Furthermore, ‘Amway India Enterprises’ was obliged to file a separate agreement with the Reserve Bank of India, allowing the proposed subsidiary to transfer capital to, and from, its parent and, thus, act as a de facto, foreign exchange dealer. Consequently, without any real investigation, the Indian Union Ministry of Industry, Secretariat for Industrial Approval (Foreign Collaborations II Section) rubber-stamped the application for the proposed company (within less than two months) on August 26th 1994. Twelve months later, the company was registered after final approval by the Indian Foreign Investment Promotion Board. In this way, America’s contemporary version of the Trojan Horse was dragged unnoticed into India with the assistance of the country’s own ill-informed regulators. However, it lay dormant until May 5th 1998 when a network of regional offices began to be established. Six years later, the destructive contents finally began to spill out. On August 8th 2004, the (apparently safe) original (biannual) agreement was mysteriously altered (at the request of the corporate officers of ‘Amway India Enterprises’) allowing the unregulated manufacture, and/or importation, of ‘Amway’s’ own range of (effectively) unsaleable household, beauty and health products. However, at no stage did Indian officials bother to ask how the so-called ‘Proven Business Model’ could possibly work when ‘Amway’ products were now, self-evidently, many times the price of equivalent (and often superior) merchandise widely-available in traditional Indian retail outlets. Yet, implicit to the modified agreement was the understanding that ‘Amway India Enterprises’ would respect Indian law and recruit non-salaried agents who could earn commission payments from retailing products. Unfortunately, Indian officials were deceived by the agents of a major US-based organized crime group.

Crooks cannot claim exemptions from Income Tax

Generally, the cheats who amass enormous wealth in dubious activities, claim that they have been paying taxes including Income Tax. However, the Judgement delivered by the Division Bench of High Court of Karnataka has given a blow to this argument and made it clear that on the money accumulated from the unlawful activities, the tax payer cannot claim any exemptions.
In Re Commissioner of Income Tax vs. Amarjeet Kaur (c/w ITRC of 1999 decided on January 31, 2006), the Division Bench of High Court of Karnataka unequivocally reiterated that the appellant M/s Manjog Home which is running a money circulation scheme in the guise of sale of products like refrigerators, television sets, electric and electronic goods through a 'deposit-linked incentive scheme' is nothing but a money circulation scheme and stated that such schemes are prohibited by law and therefore, the assessee in view of the Explanation inserted by Finance (No2) Act, 1998 is not eligible and entitled to claim deduction or allowance of such expenditure as an expenditure for the purpose of business or profession.
Several persons being members of fraudulent companies like Amway India claimed exemptions from paying Income Tax through out the country. Corporate Frauds Watch is taking up this issue to the Income Tax Commissioners of various States in India and make sure that the exemptions enjoyed by these individuals cancelled.
Of course, these people include GoldQuest International, Herbalife, Tupperware, Hindustan Unilever Network Ltd and others.

All these fraudsters employ same tactic of Amway

The other day I was in the Andhra Pradesh High Court where five cases relating to money circulation schemes came up for hearing. The modus operandi of these all companies is to file a writ petition challenging the police action whenever a criminal case was filed against them and continue their fraudulent activities. Corporate Frauds Watch has chosen to file implead petitions in all these writ petitions including those filed by Amway India.
As many as five such writ petitions have come up for hearing on Friday and it was funny to witness how the counsel for all these fraudsters, except Amway India, struggled to convince the Division Bench that the business model of all these companies is legal. Not surprisingly, the judges on the Division Bench who are well-versed with the dubious arguments of these companies started batting on behalf of the State which filed criminal cases.
The counsel of Gemini Techno Services struggled hard to convince the Division Bench about the employment generated by the company and engaging distributors and their enrollment of more distributors was legal. Every one in the court hall was laughing at the presentation. The counsel was only trying to buy time to reopen the office of the Gemini Techno which was closed by the police. The least-convinced Division Bench commented that it was nothing but money circulation scheme and reserved the order for Monday.
The wonderful question that the Division Bench asked the defending counsel was why the company wanted to adjudicate the issue in the High Court when it was open for it to contest in a criminal court. The Division Bench also wanted to know what is Techno in its business evoking peals of laughter in the court hall.
Notable point is the special government pleader commented in his remarks that the modus operandi of Gemini Techno is same that of Amway India.

Cults like Amway and fraud are closely linked

Fraud, like rape, is a particularly insidious crime, in that its traumatized victims often feel obliged to remain silent. Indeed, it is generally-accepted that the most-effective frauds are maliciously designed to incriminate, and/or embarrass, their victims into silence. Consequently, it is not difficult to deduce why cultism and fraud are so closely linked; for pernicious cults like 'Amway' and 'Scientology' are intrinsically blame-the-victim deceptions. The few victims who do manage to complain, testify that, internally, pernicious cults are exploitative totalitarian groups dedicated to crushing all dissent, but they are presented externally as traditional associations offering all manner of benefits to willing participants. In reality, like all successful frauds, pernicious cults manipulate their adherents' existing beliefs and instinctual desires, creating the illusion that they are excercising free-will. However, since, by their very nature, pernicious cults never present themselves in their true colours, no one ever becomes involved with one as a result of his/her fully-informed consent.
So who stands between the public and pernicious cultism?
I don't know about India, but in the UK, there is no government initiative. If you are a victim, or the relative of a victim, of one of these insidious groups in Britain, the only organizations (where you can go for help and support), are private. Furthermore, as both 'Amway' and 'Scientology' have proved, there is nothing to stop a cult boss from creating, and/or subverting, cult advice associations. From my own experience, I know that (as a private citizen) complaining to UK law enforcement agencies about long-established, wealthy groups like 'Amway' and 'Scientology,' is a waste of time. The UK Serious Fraud Office should be the government department with responsibility. However, this agency has rather foolishly broadcast the shocking statistic that, of the estimated £30 billions currently being stolen by fraud each year in Britain, a mere fraction of one percent (around £20 millions) was actually recovered by the SFO last year. Given the fact that the SFO is costing UK taxpayers more than £40 millions each year, then its continued existence really cannot be justified. The SFO is hardly acting as a deterrent to foreign-based racketeers. In fact, the SFO's laughable recovery/performance rate must be having completely the reverse effect.
Let's face it, if we were the billionaire bosses of a group like 'Amway' or 'Scientology,' would we be scared of the UK SFO?
I very much doubt it.

Few victims of cults like Amway lodge complaints with police

The disturbing effects of co-ordinated, devious techniques of social, psychological and physical persuasion inflicted on individuals (without their fully-informed consent) by pernicious cultic groups, like 'Amway' and 'Scientology,' can persist indefinitely. Notice how all former 'Amway' adherents (even those who are now criticizing 'Amway' on the Net) continue unconsciously to describe their experience using reality-inverting terminology coined by criminals in order to blame their victims and prevent them from complaining to law enforcement agencies.
In accurate, deconstructed English, anyone who has been persuaded to sign a contract with any corporate structure controlled by the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob, has been the victim of a premeditated, closed-market swindle and related advance fee frauds, and not an 'Independent Business Owner.' Given the wider-evidence, the term, 'IBO,' is utter nonsense - just one chapter-heading in a puerile 'commercial' fiction presented as fact.
Until significant numbers of 'Amway' victims all go to the police and report that they have been defrauded, and, in turn, used to defraud their friends and relatives, the problem will never go away. However, very few people want to admit that they could allow themselves to become the de facto slaves of cultic racketeers. In reality, at a time of vulnerability, anyone can be enticed by a cultic group and manipulated by his/her own instinctual desires; particularly if the initial approach is made by someone whom they already know and trust.
In order to have any chance of understanding cultism, it must be approached from the apparently subjective point of view that its results are always the product of a contagious deception, the victims of which unconsciously accept fiction as fact. Only then can the phenomenon be examined with genuine objectivity. Once this vital principle has been learned, the apparently authentic words and images reflected by persons under the influence of cultism - like those printed on counterfeit banknotes - are revealed as dangerous distractions. They should never be taken at face value and, therefore, I try to remind readers of this at all times. Any commentator who repeats the reality-inverting shielding terminology of any cultic group, but without detailed qualification (or heavy irony), demonstrates that he/she remains at a pitifully low-level of understanding.

Amway following in footsteps of Scientology

Many people have compared 'Amway' with 'Scientology'. The fact that 'Amway India' is now desperately trying to infiltrate traditional culture by steadfastly pretending to support a road safety campaign
In the late 1960s, the instigator of 'Scientology' , L. Ron Hubbard, bought a large manor house in the quiet S. English town of East Grinstead. Hubbard read in the 'East Grinstead Courier' that East Grinstead had been unable to fill a vacancy for a Road Safety Organizer, so he put himself forward for the job. He steadfastly pretended to the East Grinstead Road Safety Committee that he was anxious to make a contribution to the community and he felt that the experience he had gained serving on 'numerous' road safety committees in the United States could be put to good use in East Grinstead. He even explained road safety campaigns in the United States and listed ideas on how to reduce accidents locally, before confidently answering questions. L. Ron Hubbard was unanimously elected as the town's new Road Safety Organizer by an enthusiastic committee.
David Brear (copyright 2010)

25 years later (Thursday 26th. July 1984), the East Grinstead Courier published the following article:
Scientology "Dangerous and Corrupt"

East Grinstead Courier,

A HIGH COURT Judge has made the most outspoken condemnation yet of the Church of Scientology, which has its British headquarters in Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead. He condemned it as "corrupt, sinister and dangerous".Its founder, former, American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard and his Wife Mary Sue were condemned by Mr Justice Latey as "charlatan and worse."

And the sect, said the judge was "both immoral and socially obnoxious."

Hubbard and his helpers were said to be "grimly reminiscent of the ranting and bullying of Hitler and his henchmen".

Sir Geoffrey Johnston Smith, former East Grinstead MP and now representing [illegible] is to ask the Home Secretary if, in view of the judge comments, he will order a departmental inquiry into the activities of Scientology.

"I have had people quite recently come to see me concerned about the effects this organization is having on their family relationships," said Sir Geoffrey.

Scientology, which has been struggling to improve its image with a series of widely publicised reforms, found itself in the na tional newspaper headlines on Tuesday, after considerable exposure on radio and television the night before.

The judgment by Mr Justice Latey in the High Court came unheralded. He had been hearing in private a dispute about the custody of two children. Then he went into open court to order a father, aged 32, who is a Scientologist seven-year-old son and eight-year-old daughter to their mother. She is 28 and had fought for almost six years to be reunited with them after she broke away from the Scientology.

The judge ordered the Church of Scientology to stop intimidating and harassing the mother, warning that failure to do so would be dealt with, with the "utmost severity."

The father has since remarried.


Mr Justice Latey said Scientology was corrupt "because it is based on lies and deceit, and has as its real objective, money and power for its founder, his wife and those close to him at the top.

"It is sinister because it indulges in infamous practices, both to its adherents who do not toe. the line unquestioningly, and to those outside who criticise or oppose it.

"It is dangerous because it is out to capture young people, especially children and impressionable young people and indoctrinate and brainwash them so that they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult, withdrawn from ordinary thought, living and relationships with others."

The judge praised the mother's courage in escaping from the "tight and unrelenting" hold of Scientology and its ruthless discipline.

He said the children were at a school controlled by Scientologists where the "baleful influence" was ever present and the objectives were to capture the child's mind. It would be a grave risk to leave them with the father, but they still loved him — and he loved them — regular visits should be arranged.

Mr Justice Latey's reason for giving judgment in open court he described as "a warning to others."

The judge made a detailed attack on the character of Hubbard. He was not, as claimed wounded in the war and decorated. It was false to claim that he had been crippled and blinded, then cured by Scientology techniques.

Hubbard, said the judge, had disappeared and was being sought by US police.

L. Ron Hubbard was a well-known figure in East Grinstead where he established Saint Hill as the world headquarters of his movement. In August 1983 the Scientologists announced that they had "kicked out" 12 key members of their UK headquarters staff at Saint Hill as part of a policy change.

World's most powerful democracy is yet to act on organised crime groups

As you know, pernicious cults can be of any size, duration and level of criminality. They are presented externally as traditional associations. These can be arbitrarily defined by their instigators as almost any banal group (religious, cultural, political, commercial, etc.). However, internally, they are always totalitarian (i.e. they are centrally-controlled and require of their core-adherents an absolute subservience to the group, and its leadership, above all other persons). The leaders of some pernicious cults have continued to organize the creation, and/or dissolution, and/or subversion, of further (apparentlyindependent) corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, activities in order to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate themselves from liability. In this way, a few cultic organized crime groups, like 'Amway' and'Scientology,' have survived all isolated challenges to the authenticity of their constituent parts, and continued to subdivide, and spread, like cancers; enslaving the minds, and destroying the lives of countless individuals in the process. At the same time, their bosses have acquired absolute control over capital sums which place them alongside the most notorious racketeers in history.
During the 1960s, the Federal Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act was drawn up in the USA. This powerful legislation, which many people wrongly-assume was only designed to tackle the Italian/American Mafia, could have been envoked immediately by senior US law enforcement agents to limit the enduring problem of all organized crime groups, no matter how deceptively these might be presented externally.
When is a current US administration going to accept that, by passing the RICO Act in 1970, but then not rigorously enforcing it (without fear of favour), what purports to be the world's most-powerful democracy has (in effect) authorized the setting-up of US-based, global, anti-democratic, organized crime groups?
If it wasn't for its serious consequences, then the irony of this situation would be exquisite.

Amway's is a major racketeering activity

No matter what their sanctimonious bosses have steadfastly pretended to be reality, for more than half a century, a growing-band of counterfeit 'Direct Selling Companies' like 'Amway,' have been operating pernicious, blame-the-victim closed-market swindles, or money circulation schemes, and associated advance fee frauds, hidden behind (essentially unsaleable) products and services, and labyrinths of (apparently independent) corporate structures. In this way, the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob have isolated themselves from liability and infiltrated, and corrupted, the US administration, paving the way for countless copy-cat 'Direct Selling' racketeers. Whilst senior US law enforcement agents have sat and twiddled their thumbs, the bosses of various major organized crime groups have all been allowed to peddle essentially the same commercially-suicidal 'Business Opportunity' based on disguising illegal payments as 'retail sales.' In this way, down the years, huge quantities of cash have been extracted from tens of millions of constantly-churning recruits around the globe, on the pretext that the 'Exact Duplication of a Proven Positive Plan of Recruitment and Self-Consumption' can eventually lead anyone to 'Total Financial Freedom.'
The reality-inverting tactics employed by these vile thieves are blindingly obvious once you know how they operate. Taken in isolation, associating with politicians and law enforcement agents, giving money to charity, advertising campaigns, employing celebrities, etc., can all seem to be perfectly lawful activities. However, when the wider-picture is examined, these infiltration tactics are revealed as being part of a pattern of major racketeering activity.

Amway won't dare to organise meet at Vijayawada

The usual technique employed by Amway is try to involve the officials and the police to participate in various programmes and it is not new. No wonder, Rajastan police officers had fallen to the sweet talk of the crooks and organised some traffic awareness programme. They tried the same technique everywhere. But it did not work in the city of Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. If Amway has guts why don't they organise a similar feat at Vijayawada.
Once bitten twice shy. Recently Mr William Pinckney was chased out of Vijayawada and Amway would never dare to repeat the misadventure.
It is apt to recall here that Amway India tried to organise painting programme with Eenadu group of publications as media partner. When Corporate Frauds Watch pointed out to the management of Eenadu group of Publications, that Amway India is a cheating company and is facing criminal cases, the management realised its folly and withdrew from the programme.

Crooks advertise in Classifieds with tall promises

Everyday we come across a number of advertisements in the classifieds section of newspapers. They offer a wide range of business opportunities like Amway always does. It is like quick fix for all the financial needs of every one. They offer huge profits in a very short span. They show heaven in your palm.
One such ad claims that it would pay Rs. 1250 every day into your account if you give them an investment of Rs. 1,00,000 (Rupees One Hundred Thousand). If anybody pays that amount he would have to lose all the amount. They always look for gullible people with lots of promises. When Corporate Frauds Watch wanted details from the advertiser, he claimed that it is a company and he would give an undertaking on a Rs. 100 bond paper. But when asked he would write a promissory note, he said in negative. When asked whether he has permission from the Reserve Bank of India, he said that it is under processing. With such type of promises, it is easy to hoodwink the gullible. No wonder many people are falling for the sweet talk and losing their hard-earned money. What more, these fraudsters employ the same method like Amway to recruit more members by offering huge commission.
A company called Peeshonu used the same technique and vanished with about Rs. 80 crore. Corporate Frauds Watch organised a meeting at the small town of Suryapet and appealed people not to fall prey to the false promises of Peeshonu owned by one Mr Saidulu. This man purchased 40 acres of land in his wife's name and now he is refusing to repay the depositors. He is facing criminal case and is still absconding.
Another company Haryana-based Golden Forest Ltd vanished with Rs. 200 crore. And now a person who worked in that company started a company in the name of Agrigold and is collecting deposits illegally from public promising them house sites.
Let us examine more such fraud cases in the next episode.

Aryarup cheating continues unabated

Here is another victim of inducement by fly-by-night operators. These crooks come in many shapes and vanish with ;your hard-earned money. Just read the following and do not fall prey to such evil designs of such crooks,

I amf JAIPRAKASH JAJU from Beed, Maharashtra, India. I have invested Rs. 10 lakh in ATCR company (Aryarup Tourism and Club Resorts Ltd) under their scheme in December 2009 under jet super package of Rs.5 lakh each. Since then they have not retured the money as promised under the scheme in return to give Rs. 9333 per day for 200 days. they have then changed their scheme and converted it to 100 days. Then, too, we have agreed with them for the scheme. So far they have returned only Rs. 1.5 lakh.
I have not received my money till now and the team leader is also not co-operating with us. So I have decided to file a complaint to the police against the company and the team leader. I just want suggestions from you as to how to proceed in this matter further. Will it be illegal? Can police take any action in this matter. PLEASE HELP me in this matter. contact no.09422240626, 09028912456, 09158145791
There are a number of companies which are indulging in such illegal activities and getting away due to the lack awareness among public.
First and foremost important thing is nobody or a company or a group of persons should mobilise deposits from public without prior permission from the Reserve Bank of India. It is a crime under RBI Act.
These crooks make tall claims and come out with attractive packages.
My dear fellow Ihumans all over world, beware of such advertisements in newspapers inducing deposits! It is illegal and there is every danger of losing your hard-earned money. Whenever you come across such advertisements, kindly inform the nearest police station.

Tex is stuffed full of thought-stopping words, images

As ever, your dwindling little flock of intellectually-castrated 'Amway/MLM' apologists continue to bleat from the same reality-inverting script.
Mr. Scott 'Tex' Johnson's mind is self-evidently still stuffed full of thought-stopping words and images, invented by sanctimonious charlatans in order to exploit him. Classically, his inflated ego prevents him from understanding, let alone accepting, that he remains a deluded de facto slave.
The billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob must fall about laughing at their most severe and inflexible, penniless dupes like Mr. Johnson. This absurd gang of grinning racketeers have spent 50+ years inverting quantifiable reality by insisting that what they offer is the 'Best Business Opportunity in the World', and not a pyramid scam. Sadly, Mr. Johnson will probably continue to stamp his litle foot and regurgitate this puerile rubbish until the day he dies.
I wonder where Mr. Johnson has got all his money from, to keep financing his commercially-suicidal 'Amway' activities?

Baidyanath ayurvedic medicines in direct selling racket a la Amway

Baidyanath, established in 1918, manufacturer of quality Ayurvedic medicines, forayed into direct selling only to malign its reputation. The Allahabad-based firm opened its own direct selling unit in the name of Herbalage Anti-Aging Network renaming its products at exorbitant prices started network marketing.
A former Emerald of Amway India started huge campaign to recruit distributors in the coastal parts of Andhra Pradesh. He is advertising in the Classifieds of local newspapers to attract recruiters who have had experience in multilevel marketing.
The misconceived notion among people is that whoever joins first the network marketing or multilevel marketing would get benefited and the late comers would end up in losses. In fact, it is the company which gets benefited but not anyone else.
Herbalage Anti-Aging Network is set on the same lines of Amway. One could become a distributor by paying a fee of Rs. 8,766 and he would get a bunch of products along with literature at a discount of 25 per cent. If anybody does not want to become a networking agent, he could opt for an ordinary membership by paying Rs. 990. Sound any bell? Yeah, that is like Amway.
What more, the new company offers commission on accumulated basis. That is, the commission would be calculated after including the previous purchases also.
The brochure claims that the distributor could earn Rs. 17,68,563 in six months if he continuously introduced four new downline members for three consecutive months and each distributor do a minimum business of 800 business volume (BV) every month.
It is nothing but easy and quick money as decided by the Andhra Pradesh High Court in the writ petition filed by Amway India.
It is high time the police swung into action and nipped the evil in the bud.
My dear fellow Indians, do not fall prey to the crooks like this and lose your hard-earned money.

Do not forget AP High Court judgement

Public memory is very short, goes the adage. But that does not mean, the historical judgements should also be forgotten.
The Andhra Pradesh High Court stated that "Thus the two ingredients are satisfied in the case of promoter too. We are, therefore, of the considered view that the scheme run by the petitioners squarely attracts the definition of "Money Circulation Scheme" as provided in Section 2 (c) of the Act." (Para 35).
This judgement was confirmed by the Supreme Court of India, which directed the police to file the criminal case against Amway India.
The Amway apologists should understand that the High Court judgement was based on the affidavit filed by Amway India.
Now the criminal case is being tried by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Nampally, Hyderabad. Once the judgement is delivered, Tex and their ilk would certainly tuck their tails and slink off and Amway India would be forced to get out of the country.
If anybody wants the full text of the judgement they can access at
Come out and open your eyes and realise what happened in India. The Indians are hit hard both with the products and tool scam which is actually money circulation scheme.

Amway business model is illegal in India

Some stupid fellow claims that Amway's business is legal in India. Anyway, the verbal constipation-hit Tex did not elaborate what made him to comment that Amway's business is legal in India. The criminal case is pending in the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Nampally, Hyderabad. The Government issued an order restraining Amway from advertising in any media about its business model and the Amway India challenged the order in the Andhra Pradesh High Court. A civil society organisation PASS filed an implead petition in that writ petition. It is yet to come to the Bench for hearing. Suddenly, some pigheaded fellow claims that the crooks' business model is legal in India.
Above all, the Indian Direct Selling Association is complaining in a section of press that some other companies are cheating people in the name of direct selling. It is like pot calling kettle black.
It is apt to state here that another criminal case was filed against Amway India by the Corporate Frauds Watch at Ramachandrapuram police station recently along with six other companies.
Whenever and wherever possible, more criminal cases would be filed against Amway India and other companies which are indulging in money circulation scheme.
Meanwhile some stupid fellows like Tex who are apologists of the international crooks have been spreading canards that it is legal in India.
It is good to remind our readers here that the re-investigation petition is coming up for hearing on June 14 in the Nampally court, Hyderabad.

Amway scam's money circulation scheme comprises only ten persons

The manipulators are at their best when the CID of Andhra Pradesh filed the charge sheet in the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court at Nampally, Hyderabad. In the First Information Report, the police had mentioned the Amway India as the first accused and surprisingly, when the charge sheet was prepared the name of Amway India disappeared in the list of accused. After the Press cried foul, the CID amended the charge sheet and included the name of Amway India in it.
Secondly, the CID mentioned the names of only ten persons in the charge sheet and stated that they indulged in money circulation schemes. They could only explain that how only ten persons run a money circulation scheme.
Let us compare the case of GoldQuest International in which the same CID of Andhra Pradesh prepared a list of about 2,800 persons who had pocketed more than Rs. 50,000 in the money circulation scheme run by the company by selling gold and silver coins.
It is not difficult to arrive at conclusion as to what made the CID to conduct a perfunctory investigation into the Amway scam and how only ten members involved in the money circulation scheme. That is the reason, the Corporate Frauds Watch is pursuing the demand for re-investigation of the case.

Police probing realtor's false promises

Several hundreds of people are reported to have approached the Commissioner of Police, Vijayawada seeking action against a realtor and demanded their money back.
Vijayawada-based VVR Housing Limited has been offering house sites to the public at a very low price for the last two years. They have even floated another firm in the name of Viswas Real Estate and started multilevel marketing. Corporate Frauds Watch immediately warned the organisers about the consequences when they advertised in newspapers. However, they continued their business tactics without advertising again. The members have to enroll two or more members each to earn sizable commission. They promised that a member could earn Rs. 1 lakh every month, if they work hard i.e. if they could cheat more people into becoming members.
Now, the cat is out of bag. It seems that they have collected Rs. 7 crore from over 700 persons and failed to register land in their name. The agitated members approached the police who have been trying to get members' money back instead of registering a criminal case against the erring company.
My dear fellow humans all over world! Do not fall prey to the evil designs of these tricksters!

Realtor vanishes with investors' money

Yet another multilevel marketing bubble burst at Hyderabad on 05-06-2010 with scores of victims of Sri Viraat multilevel marketing company lodging a complaint with the police against it. A number of victims went to the police and informed them about the huge promises of returns they got from the owners of the Sri Viraat. The owner of the company even promised huge commission if they bring in more members into the scheme, they said
K Srinivasa Reddy started Sri Viraat company and collected money from the public with the promise of giving back huge returns after investing the same in real estate. He promised to repay Rs. 16,800 every month for every Rs. one hundred thousand. He even promised 150 square yards of land at Yadagiri Gutta near Hyderabad.
However, he never returned any money to the investors nor registered any housing plot in their name.
It is estimated that Srinivasa Reddy has collected Rs. 45 crore and now his whereabouts are not known. Interestingly, some of the investors received short messaging service in their mobiles that they would receive their deposits soon. Police is investigating the case.

Team Life Care continuing its illegal money circulation scheme

Team Life Care India Limited, (TLC) the corporate agent of Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Corporation, is continuing its money circulation schemes in the guise of selling insurance policies. It may be recalled that a criminal case was filed against the Bajaj Allianz and its corporate agent for indulging in money circulation schemes way back in 2009. A la Amway, both the companies have chosen to file a writ petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court challenging filing of criminal case. However, Shyam Sundar has also filed an affidavit in the High Court.
In spite of the criminal case, the TLC is continuing its illegal money circulation scheme while selling insurance policies of Bajaj Allianz.
Recently, an elderly lady approached Corporate Frauds Watch (CFW) stating that the Bajaj Allianz is not paying the insurance amount after the sad demise of her son. CFW along with Consumers Guidance Society has taken up the issue and scrutinized the documents.
Much to their amazement, it was found out that the last installment was not submitted to the company by its agents after collecting the same from the elderly woman. When contacted, the Bajaj Allianz refused to pay the amount and the TLC coolly shrugged off its responsibility. CFW approached the police for filing a criminal case against the TLC and then the TLC officials came down for negotiations. Now, they are bargaining the amount of insurance.
CFW observed that the elderly woman was induced to buy the insurance policies with the promise of huge money only if she brings in two more persons. She was even given an identity card as an insurance agent. According to Insurance Act, no person other than a trained one, should sell insurance policies. TLC is blatantly violating the Insurance Act.

Fraud being committed in the UK goes unpunished

Agents of the UK Serious Fraud Office are fully-aware that 'Amway UK Ltd.' has been just one counterfeit 'Direct Selling' company comprising a vast international labyrinth of corporate structures (pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, enterprises) created, and controlled, by US-based billionaire racketeers in order to perpetrate, and shield, a closed-market swindle, or money circulation scheme, and allied advance fee frauds. Furthermore, agents of the UK SFO are fully- aware that these grinning American charlatans have corrupted the US administration in order to obstruct justice and that they have stolen at least one billion tax-free dollars from UK citizens during the previous 35 years. Yet, the UK SFO has so far refused to pursue any criminal enquiry into what lurks behind 'Amway UK Ltd,' whilst the former Deputy Director of the UK SFO, Peter Kiernan, was actually part of the highly-paid legal defence team which recently succeeded in preventing 'Amway UK Ltd.' from being closed under UK bankruptcy laws.
The UK Serious Fraud Office is a British law enforcement agency with a current annual budget (paid by UK tax payers) of £44.6 millions The Director of the UK SFO is accountable to the UK Attorney General . The UK SFO has more than 300 staff. However, the combined efforts of all these upstanding civil servants only managed to recover a total of less than £21 millions last year, of which a derisory £4 millions was actually returned to the victims of fraud in the UK. To put these embarrassing UK SFO performance figures into perspective: in January of 2010, the UK Attorney General's office published an estimate revealing that the true extent of fraud in the UK is currently £30 billions annually . The overwhelming majority of fraud (by value) being committed in the UK is known to be foreign-based, highly-organized and, therefore, outside of the juristiction of all UK law enforcement agencies other than the UK SFO.
In plain language, at the present time, the UK government accepts more than 99.9% (by value) of fraud being committed in the UK goes completely unpunished.

Scientology, a major organised crime group

For more than half a century, a mystifying labyrinth of (apparently independent) corporate structures most-commonly referred to as 'Scientology,' has been allowed to grow around the world. Although presented externally as a 'Scientifically-based Religion/Self-Betterment Group,' a growing-mountain of quantifiable evidence proves that, internally, 'Scientology' is a pernicious totalitarian cultic movement (i.e. it is centrally-controlled and requires of its core-adherents an absolute subservience to the group and its self-appointed sovereign leadership above all other persons). 'Scientology' now comprises literally thousands of corporate structures. Since the early 1950s, these have engaged in unlawful, and/or lawful, enterprises in order to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate their wealthy bosses from liability. Most recently,'Scientology' has been challenged in France and Australia as a vast deception.
Last year, two of 'Scientology's' French-registered corporate structures were convicted of organized fraud and the illegal operation of a pharmacy. Fined more than $1million, with their corporate officers receiving suspended prison sentences, these foreign-controlled French-registered private companies survived the French prosecutor's request that they be immediately closed, by promising a French judge that all of the illegal activities with which they had been charged, had long-since been prohibited. However, it has now emerged that, during the French trial, numerous 'Scientology' adherents perjured themselves. A French television documentary, 'Scientology the Truth about a Lie' (broadcast last week) has revealed that, far from having been prohibited, all of the illegal activities with which 'Scientology' had been charged in France, were still present within the organization. A middle-aged man who was working with the French television documentary crew, infiltrated 'Scientology.' After just a few weeks in the organization, he was being subjected to demands to hand over more than 20 thousand Euros to his 'Scientology' handlers. Without his fully-informed consent, this individual was being exposed to co-ordinated devious techniques of social and psychological persuasion. These techniques are designed to fulfill the hidden criminal objectives of the leadership of 'Scientology' by provoking in adherents an infantile total dependence on the group to the detriment of themselves and of their existing family, and/or other, relationships. This French television documentary has again proved 'Scientology' to be a major organized crime group. Behind its mystifying corporate camouflage, 'Scientology' manipulates its adherents' existing beliefs and instinctual desires, creating the illusion that they excercising free will. In this way, 'Scientology' adherents are also surreptitiously coerced into following potentially harmful, physical procedures (including the ingestion of massive doses of vitamins, sleep deprivation, protein restriction, repetitive chanting /moving, etc). These procedures are similarly designed to facilitate the shutting-down of an individual's critical and evaluative faculties without his/her fully-informed consent.
