'Xango's' Joe Morton, foolishly admits that so-called 'MLM income opportunities' have had effectively 100% overall loss/churn rates

Grinning 'Xango' racketeer , Joe Morton

Predictably, when faced with exposure on the Net., the bosses of the 'Amway' copy-cat 'MLM income opportunity' racket most-commonly referred to as 'Xango,'  have attempted to maintain their monopoly of information by sending a communication - signed by Joe Morton - to their adherents. Since this document is obviously an attempt to prevent deluded victims of a blame-the-victim fraud from facing reality and complaining to law enforcement agents, it is, therefore, also an attempt to obstruct justice and, as such, it clearly forms part of an overall pattern of ongoing major racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act , 1970)

In brief, the 'Xango' racketeers are now playing the tedious, and unoriginal, role of innocent victims under attack. However, Joe Morton's Orwellian propaganda contains the following, foolish admission. 

'There are hundreds of start-ups every year in our (MLM) industry. Few make it beyond the first year. Less make it to five years. An elite number make it to a decade. XANGO has reached 10 years in business as a high-profile company by empowering leaders to grow and succeed.'

In reality, millions of ill-informed individuals around the world have been , and continue to be, deceived by numerous gangs of 'MLM income opportunity' racketeers. Since the instigation of the 'Amway' racket in the late 1950s, all of these essentially-identical dissimulated closed-market swindles, and related advance fee frauds, have been hiding effectively 100%, overall loss-rates for all their constantly-churning participants. The insignificant minority of apparently 'successful MLM leaders,'have been schills. 

Courageous 'Amway' whistle-blower, Eric Scheibeler, spent 10 years living the 'MLM' lie.  At the height of his reality-denying activity, Eric had approximately 2000 individuals beneath him in the 'Amway' pyramid, but more than 50% were being replaced annually. Only a deluded minority continued to believe that Eric was a typical millionaire 'MLM' sucess-story. When he finally confronted external reality and got out of 'Amway,' Eric Scheibeler had lost approximately $100 000. He was, in fact, destitute and suicidal.  

'Xango' $40 per bottle wampum
As ever, I publicly-challenge Joe Morton and his criminal associates to produce quantifiable evidence (in the form of audited accounts; particularly, income- tax payment receipts) to prove that a significant number of 'Xango' participants have generated an overall net-income lawfully by regularly retailing the over-priced 'Xango' wampum to the general public for a profit.

Elementary common-sense reveals that the 'Xango' wampum to be nothing more than latter-day snake oil. Consequently, it has been effectively-unsaleable on the open-market. Self-evidently, the only real function of the 'Xango' wampum, has been to launder unlawful payments in a closed-market swindle or pyramid scam. 


In the adult world of quantifiable reality, the organization known as 'Xango' is an 'Amway' copy-cat. i.e. 'Xango' is the reality-inverting label slapped over the entrance to yet another self-perpetuating 'MLM Prosperity Gospel' cult.

'Xango' was instigated, and is run, by a gang of exceedingly-greedy, but otherwise-mediocre, little racketeers from Utah. These narcissistic parasites have begun to grow rich by peddling an unoriginal lie whilst steadfastly pretending moral and intellectual authority.

The authenticity of the 'Xango' lie is currently being challenged all over the Internet. However, exactly like the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob,  the bosses of the 'Xango' mob have posed as religiously-inspired philanthropists - poor little victims under attack.

Eileen Harrington

This general video warning was recently produced by the Bureau of Consumer Protection at the US Federal Trade Commission . However, it beggars belief that senior FTC officials like Eileen Harrington can use public funds to pretend that the FTC wants to protect the American people from charlatans posing as business sponsors, when, for decades, other senior FTC officials have allowed the cancer of 'MLM income opportunity' fraud not only to gnaw its way into the USA, but also into the rest of the world.
Despite more than half a century of damning-evidence (in the form of an almost total absence of income-tax payment by a never-ending chain of tens of millions so-called 'MLM business owners'), senior US government trade officials prefer to remain blissfully-ignorant of the fact that behind so-called 'MLM' companies has lurked the ongoing historical phenomenon of criminogenic, or pernicious, cultism. Meanwhile, the self-appointed bosses of these reality-inverting, totalitarian groups continue to rake-in vast fortunes by peddling variations of the same Utopian fiction as fact.

'MLM business opportunity' fraud is undoubtedly a form of ongoing, major organized crime spawned in the USA. It should never have been left to ill-informed, and/or corrupt, American regulators to deal with this internal threat to democracy and the rule of law.

Tom Cruise, Project Celebrity backfires

KAtie Holmes Tom Cruise divorce tabloid magazine covers July 16 2012

Recently,  the mainstream media (particularly, lightweight magazines specializing in celebrities and scandals) has again temporarily-turned its attention to the pernicious cult which has been most-commonly referred to as 'Scientology.' This is because the chapter of the two-dimensional 'Scientology' fairytale entitled 'Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes perfect marriage,' has suddenly fallen to pieces. 

National Enquirer Tom Cruise Katie Holmes - P 2012

The majority of media reports cite Tom Cruise's unquestioning devotion to 'Scientology' as being the underlying cause of his latest divorce. However, a lot of well-informed observers (particularly, former'Scientologists') had seen this unhappy-ending as being inevitable.

It now seems that Katie Holmes has decided that she doesn't want her six year old daughter to follow in her father's tragicomic footsteps, and be brainwashed into living her life intellectually-castrated by the exploitative, paranoid group-delusion that all human beings are secretly infested with, and enslaved by, invisible, evil extra-terrestrials which only 'Scientology/Dianetics Study Technology' can enable us to identify and 'clear from planet Earth' (for a price).

Tom Cruise has been described as the most powerful movie star on the planet. At one time, any movie with him in it was guaranteed to gross over $ 100 millions at the box office. Any corporation would have to pay a fortune to obtain the endorsement of Tom Cruise. Yet he continues to commit huge amounts of his own time and funds to promote the ‘Church of Scientology;’ an organization which, although registered as a ‘tax-free religious association’ in the USA, is officially listed as a dangerous cult (shielding an organized, blame-the-victim fraud) in various other democracies, including France and Germany.  

A recording of Tom Cruise appearing before a crowd of 2000 ‘Scientologists’ at a closed rally held in the USA (DVD ‘Applied Scolastics Spanish Lake’, ‘Golden Era Productions,’ 2003), gives a good idea of the key-role Tom Cruise has unwittingly played in the promotion of the 'Scientology' fraud.

After emerging from his VIP front-row seat to warm applause, a beaming Tom Cruise stood at a lectern. He was dressed in a dark suit with an open-necked shirt. He sported collar length hair and a full beard. After an emotional account of his childhood-struggle against dyslexia, the star launched into a long-winded, but precisely-worded, endorsement of what he believes to have been his salvation :

‘I am not just a believer ! I use this technology each and everyday in my life ! At my work ! With my children ! In every area of life ! And I am proof of what study technology can accomplish ! My mission is to make study technology available for everyone who wants to reach it ! Any group ! Any person ! Any teacher ! Any mentor ! Any parent ! Every child ! Anyone!’ I have, and I will, continue to dedicate my life to accomplishing this, and I am supremely grateful to Mr. L. Ron. Hubbard for the study technology he provided, because I would not be here today if I didn’t get that.’

So what lies behind this passionate proselytizing?

young tomcruise

Born in 1962 in New Jersey, Tom Cruise (given name, Thomas Cruise Mapother IV) was permanently an outsider - the new little boy in the neighbourhood. In 1974, following his parents’ divorce, Thomas (aged 11) and his 2 older sisters, Lee Anne and Marian, and younger sister, Cass, went to live with their mother in a modest home in Kentucky. Their father died of cancer soon afterwards. Thomas (aged 14) accepted a scholarship at the St. Francis Seminary Cincinnati, where, for 8 months during 1976, he trained to become a Catholic priest, but he was unable to follow his studies because he was dyslexic. 

Tom Cruise Childhood Pictures

Thomas desperately tried to achieve acceptance in the Seminary via sports. However, despite his courage and determination, he was too small and not really talented. Meanwhile, his mother remarried and moved back to New Jersey. When Thomas was unfairly judged a failure and obliged to leave the Seminary, he attended High School in New Jersey where he discovered amateur dramatics. As a performing artist pretending to be other people, Thomas found immediate success and acceptance, so he decided to make stardom his goal in life.

In 1980, Thomas (aged 18) left school and went to live in New York. He attended evening drama classes and supported himself by taking menial day jobs. During this period, he attended auditions for television ads. He was never chosen, despite travelling to Hollywood to test for more-important roles. 

Thomas then shortened his name and signed up with ‘The Creative Artists Agency.’ A string of movies followed, culminating in ‘Risky Business’ which made him into a minor star. At this time, Tom Cruise (aged 22) gave one of his first television interviews. The out-takes from this material, reveal him to have still been suffering from dyslexia. At one point, he smiled vacantly at the interviewer, completely unable to follow her questions.

 It was at this stage in his early career that Tom Cruise was deliberately targeted by‘Scientology,’ following a sinister doctrine, ‘Project Celebrity,’ issued by L. Ron. Hubbard dating from 1963. This incited ‘Scientologists’ to seek out ‘any person well known to the public and well liked but who has passed his or her prime, or any rising figure.’ The same document shows that Hubbard was so keen to recruit celebrities, that his adherents were instructed not to take payment from them at first. To this end, by the early 1970s, Hubbard had organized the acquisition of an impressive mansion in Los Angeles, ‘The Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre.’ Its basic function remains to ensnare rising or falling celebrities, by identifying their weaknesses and by pandering to their existing belief in their own importance.

In 1986, Tom Cruise (aged 24) starred in the smash-hit movie, ‘Top Gun,’ and became an international sex-symbol. He was then approached by ‘Scientology’ through an intermediary, Mimi Rogers (aged 30), an attractive movie/television actress and ‘Scientologist,’ well-known for bringing celebrities into the organization. In 1987, Tom Cruise married Mimi Rogers. She took her young husband to the ‘Celebrity Centre,’ where he was welcomed with open arms. The devious procedures by which Tom Cruise was gradually transformed into an unquestioning believer in the ‘Scientology’ fairytale, have been disclosed by some of the actual persons who were directly involvedHe was first taken to a comfortable room in the ‘Celebrity Centre’ to be ‘Audited.’ This involved a one to one interview in which he was encouraged to divulge every detail of his life. Even the most intimate information about his sexual partners and preferences was recorded. He was persuaded to recount his frustration about his dyslexia, his grief about the loss of his father, his sense of exclusion as a child, etc. etc. Tom Cruise was then told that‘Dianetics study technology’ would clear all these blocks and enable him to fulfil his true potential. After passing a simple course in language, the star became convinced that ‘Dianetics’ had cured his dyslexia. He then began to invest more and more of his time studying ‘Scientology’ - so much so, that he divorced Mimi Rogers in 1989.

The current boss of ‘Scientology,’ David Miscavige (b.1960), realised that, in Tom Cruise, he’d found everything that L. Ron Hubbard had dreamed of in ‘Project Celebrity.’ The popular young star was now selected to become the international ambassador for ‘Scientology.’ He was invited to visit the secret‘Scientology Base’ at Hemet, 100 miles west of LA in the Californian desert. Former staff have freely-explained its paranoid atmosphere and sinister function. 

Approximately 800 ‘Scientologists’ have lived and worked on an expansive site. At the heart of Hemet, is an Orwellian fortress protected 24 hrs a day by armed guards — it bristles with surveillance cameras and razor wire. This building is forbidden to everyone except the uniformed elite of ‘Scientology,’ the‘Sea Org.’ It is from Hemet, that David Miscavige rules the organization and plans his world-wide strategy. The majority of ordinary ‘Scientologists’ do not even know of its existence, let alone its location. Staff at Hemet have been conditioned to believe that agents of an evil extraterrestrial force are trying to destroy ‘Scientology,’ therefore, their ‘Church’ is obliged to defend itself. When visiting Hemet, Tom Cruise has been treated like a God. He is flown in by helicopter and given his own private villa complete with a flock of servants. David Miscavige has personally selected the star’s supervisors, and has arranged for him to progress, unhindered, through the pyramid of ‘Dianetics’ initiation.

Former ‘Scientologist,’ Bruce Hines, has explained how he encountered Tom Cruise at Hemet, and how he was ordered to allow the star to pass the famous ‘E-Meter’ tests, no matter what the reading. 

David Miscavige spends long periods with Tom Cruise and the two are close friends.

In 1990, Tom Cruise met the Australian movie star, Nicole Kidman. They soon married, but despite remaining together for 10 years, Nicole Kidman, never really fell for ‘Scientology.’ Although she visited Hemet with her husband and was treated like a Goddess, to her own confidents she described the ‘Base’as ‘giving her the creeps.’ Eventually, the couple’s marriage ended when they adopted two children, Isabella and Connor. Tom Cruise insisted that they should not go to a traditional school, they should be brought up as ‘Scientologists.’ His two sisters, Marian and Cass (whom he had brought into‘Scientology’), were appointed as mentors. When Nicole Kidman objected, Tom Cruise was given a typical ultimatum - if he wanted to progress in ‘Scientology’ then he would have to break with all negative influences.

It seems that history keeps repeating itself.

Surya Micro's computer education is a money circulation scheme

Yet another cheating company in the name of computer education has cheated already thousands of people indulging money circulation scheme in the multilevel marketing. 
Bangalore-based Surya Micro Technologies with N H Raju at the helm of affairs has cheated the gullible up to several crores all over south India. According to information available, the fraudulent company has cheated the people of Karnataka and Kerala. It is not sure how many victims are in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. This is also an open money circulation scheme in the name of service while Amway and others indulge in the same crime in the name of product sales. 
The modus operandi of this computer education conman is same that of MyVideoTalk.  After becoming a member, he/she has to enroll ten members and in turn these ten members have to join ten more members each. The initial payment at the time of joining is Rs. 1250. Thereafter the joined persons have to mobilise unauthorised deposits from the members ranging from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 50,000 in various denominations. The promoters and members induce the gullible to believe that they would give high rate of interest apart from commissions on the joining of new members in the scheme.
They issue post-dated cheques for the satisfaction of the new entrants.
The whole fraud came to light when some of the cheques got bounced due to lack of sufficient funds in the account. Already several criminal cases were filed against the promoters and upline members. Already several criminal cases were booked against the fraudulent company. However, the police have yet to take action against the promoters who are on enrolling spree.
Corporate Frauds Watch is once again alerting the public not to fall prey to such crooks who offer high rate of interest on the unauthorised deposits. These type of schemes are liable for punishment under The Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978 and Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934. Public are hereby alerted to be very cautious against such schemes and do not get enrolled and enroll others into scheme.

Bob Diamond has resigned, but he has not called for the re-establishment of the rule of law

Between 1973 and 2006, at least one million UK and Irish citizens are known to have signed an annual contract with 'Amway UK Ltd' in which they were arbitrarily defined as 'Independent Business Owners.' In reality, the hidden, overall rolling churn/insolvency rate for the so-called 'Amway MLM business/income opportunity' in Britain, was effectively 100%. It has been estimated that, over a period of 34 years, the gang of billionaire, US-based racketeers behind 'Amway UK Ltd.' unlawfully generated around $1billion dollars by peddling their constantly-churning UK adherents countless, effectively-valueless publications, recordings, tickets to meetings, etc., on the fraudulent pretext that these 'optional materials contained exclusive secrets vital to achieving success within Amway.'   

'Amway UK' propaganda 2007

Several years ago, I was given verbal assurances by officers of the Company Investigation Branch of the UK government's Ministry for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform that, privately, they fully-accepted that 'Amway' was the corporate-front for two vast inter-related frauds, and that once 'Amway UK Ltd.' was closed down in the interests of the public (using technical, civil insolvency procedures) a rigorous criminal inquiry into the scandal lurking behind 'Amway' would be conducted by the UK Serious Fraud Office.

Is plea bargaining a realistic option for UK justice?
Peter Kiernan

During the UK government's low-level civil investigation and prosecution of  'Amway UK Ltd.,' the counterfeit 'direct selling' company was temporarily-represented by none other than the former deputy director of the UK SFO, Mr. Peter Kiernan. He, and other well-paid lawyers working for the firm of Eversheds LLP, actually tried (but failed) to persuade UK government officials to drop their civil prosecution.

In 2008, the UK government's public interest civil bankruptcy petition was declined by a UK High Court Judge, Mr. Justice Norris (on the demonstrably specious grounds that 'Amway's' attorneys had offered assurances that  the company's officers had been completely unaware that some of the company's senior 'distributors' had been lying for decades about the actual results of 'MLM', but, all the same, they had expelled the guilty parties and voluntarily reformed all previously-unlawful practices). This dangerous decision was then upheld (on appeal) by 2 out of 3 Appeal Court Judges. After first accepting a large quantity of information, agents of the UK SFO then refused to conduct any criminal investigation of'MLM income opportunity' fraud in general and of 'Amway' in particular. However, due to bad publicity, the 'Amway' fraud has been effectively-halted in the UK. Its new main-feeding ground has become Asia. Currently (every 4 years), the 'Amway' fraud is churning around one million victims in India, where its apologists have claimed that the 'Amway MLM income opportunity' has been fully-investigated in the UK and given a clean bill of health by UK government regulators and by the UK courts.

In a series of stomach-churning events, strangely-reminiscent of those surrounding the UK authorities failure to investigate 'Amway UK Ltd', the 'Big Brother' of Barclays Bank, Bob Diamond, has now resigned. Predictably, he still steadfastly pretends moral and intellectual authority, but, no matter what reality-inverting script he recites, tellingly, it will not include a common-sense call for a rigorous, independent, criminal inquiry and the re-establishment of the rule of law in respect of all the 'Big Brothers' of the banking fraternity.
As most people already know, last week, regulators in the US and UK fined Barclays Bank more than $450 millions for its role in a conspiracy to rig 'Libor' and 'Euribor' (Libor is the variable key-interest-rate at which banks in London lend money to each other for the short-term in a particular currency. A new Libor rate is calculated each morning by financial data firm Thomson Reuters. It is based on interest rates provided by members of the British Bankers Association. Libor and Euribor directly affect the cost of hundreds of trillions of dollars of financial transactions internationally). 

Barclays' senior corporate officers (including Bob Diamond) have so-far admitted that a group of Barclays' traders lied for a number of years (prior to the current world economic crisis), in order to raise Libor and Euribor simply to make additional profits for Barclays and additional 'bonuses' for themselves, but then (when the economic crisis hit) these same traders lied to lower the key-inter-bank-borrowing-rates in order to hide Barclays' true position.
Whomsoever is investigating the Barclays scandal would do well to follow two well-known maxims:'Follow the money;' and: 'He who first cries out "Stop Thief!," is often he who has stolen the treasure.'For it would be far more accurate to say that common-sense, supported by quantifiable evidence, strongly-suggests that the bosses of Barclays created, and personally-profited-massively from, a systematic fraud designed to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate them from liability. Self-evidently, it was the bosses of Barclays who placed their subordinates in a position where they were at liberty to manipulate Libor and Euribor, and who offered these subordinates inducements to do exactly that, whilst they turned a blind-eye. In the most simple terms, the likes of Bob Diamond received millions of dollars of 'bonuses' on profits generated by a form of theft, but Bob is now amongst the first to shout 'stop thief!' 

Prime Minister David Cameron, who yesterday launched an inquiry into banking standards, has described these events as 'a scandal'. The UK Serious Fraud Office is only now considering whether to bring criminal charges.

There are many outraged people asking how is it possible that years after this vast fraud was perpetrated, senior UK law enforcement agents are still scratching their heads, wondering whether they should bother to make an attempt to investigate it, let alone hold those who profited the most from it, to account?  
There are hundreds of lawyers who staff the UK SFO, but it is very difficult to know what they do all day long (other than fantasising about getting a much-more-highly-paid job in the private sector defending companies like 'Amway' and 'Barclays Bank' ). Perhaps, it might be a very good idea for them to read the Fraud Act 2006?

Amway is selling Nutrilite as medicine

Prasanna Kumar has left a new comment on the post "Police shut down Amway India all over Kerala": 

Hi Shyam,

Thanks for your info.

Amway people forced me to attend a meeting on Friday at some Govt.Conference hall. I paid Rs.70/- to attend that meeting. They make us feel that we are not leading any good life in this world and they will display slides with images that were taken from Google search including cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Australia, Switzerland and many wonderful places that images will tempt people to dream about reaching or visiting those places. Even 70% peoples are from their side (Paid from Network 21 peoples). Even I saw same peoples filling the stage with fluent accent. They fool us like the product are better than English medicine. 
I agree that home products are good and I am sure that Nutrilite products are more, more and more expensive than any other product. I asked the same question a Network 21 member, he told me that some products are cheap and also gave example that Detergents are cheaper, just think can we apply that detergent soap to our body and can we intake that soap. I felt very funny when I heard that from a major Network 21 promoter or senior Network 21 member. 
Also, they prescribed some tablets for Type 1 Diabetes. The tablets are mentioned below with the prices in brackets 
NUTRILITE® Natural B - (Rs.769.00)
NUTRILITE® Protein Family Pack (107766IDH) (Rs.3029.00)
NUTRILITE® Fiber (859.00) 
They told me that we need to leave English medicine and we need to continue with Nutrilite medicine for a minimum of 3 months to see the Nutrilite effect. Just think do the patient can tolerate the disease for 3 months to see the Nutrilite medicine effect? Can they take responsibilities of patients' commitments if patient dies or suffers with major problems? 
We work for them and make them to have profit and if wrong happens the AMO will have the blame and no major persons from Network 21 or Amway will come to picture. 
Just think that middle class people can afford Nurtilite products? Even they force us to take those products for their profit. Even a big company like Apple will not sell products from Network 21, Apple know the quality of their product and this Amway is not confident of their product and experiment on peoples by spending people's money. 
Please please do not fall prey. These Network 21 people will benefit for their own and do not turn around if something wrong occurs.
They advise to take Nutrilite medicines like an expert doctor as they are the chief doctors from Apollo, Manipal. Please avoid intake of Nutrilite and Artistry without Doctor's prescription. They are extremely dangerous. Also don't join Network business, at last AMO member will be in trouble.
