मुंबई (29अक्तूबर)! आज मुंबई उच्चन्यायलय ने N 'Mart द्वारा दायर याचिकायों को ख़ारिज करते हुए खाशी नाराजगी जाहिर की है।
आपको बता दें की मुंबई उच्च न्यायलय में दो याचिकाएं दायर की गयी थी, एक प्रतिभा शेखावत एवं दूसरी गोपाल शेखावत तथा कंपनी के लोगों द्वारा दायर की गयी थी। याचिका में इन्होने मांग किया था की आंध्रप्रदेश पुलिस द्वारा उनके खिलाफ दर्ज की गयी रिपोर्ट रद्द की जाये।
न्यायलय ने दोनों याचिकाओं के विरोधाभासी होने के कारण रद्द करते हुए अपनी नाराजगी जाहिर की।http://mlm-frauds.blogspot.in/2012/10/nmart.html

Bombay High Court dismisses NMart writ petitions


Bombay High Court on Monday (29-10-2012) expressed displeasure against the petitioner NMart a.k.a. New Look Retail for filing contradictory information in different writ petitions and dismissed the two writ petitions.

It may be recalled that NMart filed two writ petitions - one in the name of Pratibha Shekhawat, wife of Gopal Singh Shekhawat and another in the name of NMart employees - seeking quashing of first information reports registered by the Andhra Pradesh police against them.

However, after perusing the writ petitions, the division bench observed that the information mentioned in the two writ petitions were contradictory and hence dismissed both of them.

(The full text of the Bombay High Court judgement would be published in these columns once it is posted on its website-Editor.)

टूटी कड़ी तो लगेगी हथकड़ी

मुंगेर: लोगों की कड़ी जोड़कर कारोबार करने वाली नेटवर्क मार्केटिंग कंपनियों पर पुलिस की पैनी नजर है। इन कंपनियों द्वारा ठगी की लगातार मिल रही शिकायतों पर पुलिस जनता की गाढ़ी कमाई बचाने को तत्पर हो गई है। यानी अब ये कंपनियां लोगों को जल्द अमीर बनने का सब्जबाग दिखाकर उन्हें ठग नहीं सकेंगी। एसपी पी. कन्नन ने सभी थानाध्यक्षों को पत्र लिखकर ऐसी कंपनियों पर नजर रखने के निर्देश दिए हैं।
दरअसल, केरल में एक नेटवर्क मार्केटिंग कंपनी ने बीते दिनों 'गो क्विक रिच' योजना के तहत लोगों को एक करोड़ रुपये का चूना लगाया। इस पर केरल सरकार ने बिहार के मुख्य सचिव को पत्र लिखकर ऐसी कंपनियों के जरिए हो रही ठगी के प्रति अगाह किया था। इस पर मुख्य सचिव ने प्रदेश के सभी जिलों के एसपी को पत्र लिखकर ऐसी कंपनियों की गतिविधियों पर पैनी नजर रखने को कहा है।
एएसपी राजीव मिश्रा ने बताया,इस बाबत सभी थानाध्यक्षों को सतर्क कर दिया गया है। लोगों निवेश करने से पहले संबंधित संस्था के बारे में पूरी जानकारी प्राप्त कर लें। मसलन, संस्था रिजर्व बैंक से मान्यता प्राप्त है या नहीं। संस्था निबंधित है या नहीं। पूरी जानकारी हासिल करने के बाद ही पैसों का निवेश करें। जल्द ही सुरक्षित निवेश को लेकर जागरूकता अभियान भी चलाया जाएगा।

Self-evidently, 'MLM' adherents have all been deceived into buying, and peddling, an 'opportunity' to commit financial suicide

I observe that someone  called 'Kishore Reddy' has left a particularly infantile comment on Corporate Frauds Watch in which he ignores quantifiable reality (in the form of countless persons around the world who have all been tricked into losing their time and money, and sometimes their friends, families or lives, in blame-the-victim closed-market swindles and related advance fee frauds dressed up as 'MLM Income Opportunities') and, instead, treats us to the Cambridge Dictionary definition of the highly-ambiguous word, 'opportunity.'
'an occasion or situation which makes it possible to do something that you want to do or have to do, or the possibility of doing something.'
Fortunately, this classic, thought-stopping 'MLM' bullshit contains another, unambiguous word, 'given.' The use of this term (in its reality-inverting 'MLM' sense) clearly demonstrates that 'Kishore Reddy' is either an 'Amway' propagandist or an intellectually-castrated inhabitant of the 'Amway' fools' paradise; for this slimy little character follows the ritual script and insists that 'MLM' adherents are 'all given the situation or occasion to participate' and that no one is forcing them.
Now even a ten year old child should be able to see immediately that nothing is ever given to 'MLM' adherents (in the traditional sense of this word). They all have to pay (and continue to pay) through the nose to participate in their financially-suicidal so-called 'Income Opportunities.' 
I challenge the narcissistic racketeers behind 'Kishore Reddy,' to produce quantifiable evidence which would prove that any so-called 'MLM Income Opportunity' has ever generated any significant or sustainable revenue other than that deriving unlawfully from a never-ending chain of losing participants.
Self evidently, 'MLM' adherents have all signed up in ignorance of key-information, and thus, they have been deceived into buying, and peddling, an 'opportunity' to commit financial suicide. Indeed, during the final months of WWII, Japan's doomed, young army of thousands of so-called 'kamikaze' were also described as willing volunteers.
In the most extreme cases, destitute, dissociated and depressed former inhabitants of the 'MLM' fools' paradise have also taken their own lives.

Thoughtless questions?: Thoughtful answers!

One of the poor inhabitants of the 'Amway' fools' paradise, Anshuman Sharma, has politely asked: 

You said 10 millions distributor signed in Amway and no body earned what they invest.

1) then how you say in early blogs MLM is quik and fast money?
2) if no body is earning how this orgnisation is running in more then 100 countries .and why distributors are get enrolled?
The answers to these questions are as follows:
  • The only people who have been making quick and easy money in 'Amway'are the tiny minority who have been peddling the overwhelming majority (i.e. a never-ending chain of vulnerable participants) expensive places in a classic fools' paradise. Over the years, tens of millions of victims have been attracted into the 'Amway' trap by an offer of future easy money (i.e. 'total financial freedom'), but, to avoid the accusation that they are running a 'get-rich quick scheme,'  the 'Amway' racketeers have fostered the reality-inverting belief that only people who believe 100% in success and who are prepared to work hard for 2-5 years, will achieve 'total financial freedom.' Yet the quantifiable evidence clearly proves that no matter how hard you work in'Amway' or how much you believe that you will succeed, eventually, you can never succeed.
  • Until the 1970s, the  'Amway' racketeers confined their clandestine cultic/criminal activities to North America. Only when faced with investigation and the possibility of closure, they began to move abroad to Australia, Europe etc.. As trade regulators/legislators around the world have slowly begun to understand how the blame-the-victim 'Amway' fraud functions, the 'Amway' racketeers have simply moved their abusive activities to countries where the problem is largely unknown. Vulnerable people continue to be fooled by the 'Amway' fraud, because the organization has maintained an absolute monopoly of information about the catastrophic results of the so-called 'Amway Income Opportunity.' Obviously, no one would join any so-called 'Income Opportunity' with an effectively 100% loss/churn rate, unless they were being deceived.

The 'Amway Income Opportunity' is a fools' paradise

This week, I was contacted by a highly-educated, and deeply religious, Indian man living in Europe, who asked me:
  • How can millions of Indians fall for this glittering Amway nonsense?
  • How can my poor countrymen be so foolish as to think that there really are these wonderful Christian Amway billionaires in America who want to make non-Christians into millionaires?
This was my reply:
The fact is that there are vast numbers of decent people (Christians, Muslims, Jews, etc.) around the world who all genuinely believe that,when they die, they will enter paradise provided they continue to believe totally in the existence of paradise.
Now I don't believe in the existence of paradise, but if people want to believe, then they have every right to do so. What I do object to, is when charlatans exploit vulnerable persons' need to believe in future redemption, but actually peddle them places in a fools' paradise.
You should bear in mind that, despite all the scripted-bullshit regurgitated by deluded 'Amway Income Opportunity' believers, during the previous 50+ years, 'Amway's' echelon of amoral attorneys has always avoided answering the most basic, common-sense questions concerning the hidden results the so-called 'Amway MLM Income Opportunity.'  
  • Since the organization's instigation, exactly how many people around the world have signed-up with 'Amway,' and exactly how many of these alleged 'Independent Business Owners' have got back more money than they paid in?
  • What quantifiable evidence can you supply which would prove that the so-called 'Amway Income Opportunity' has had any significant and sustainable revenue other than that deriving unlawfully from a never-ending chain of losing participants?
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, the honest anwsers to these questions are as follows:
  • Over the years, tens of millions of people have signed up with'Amway' around the world, but effectively none of them have got back more than they paid in.
  • No quantifiable evidence can be produced which would prove that the so-called 'Amway Income Opportunity' has had any significant and sustainable revenue other than that deriving unlawfully from a never-ending chain of losing participants, for the simple reason that no such evidence exists.
In the light of these irrefutable answers, anyone with fully-functioning critical, and evaluative, faculties should immediately be able to deduce that the 'Amway Income Opportunity' is a fools' paradise. Classically, its inhabitants' belief is quite genuine, but what they believe in, is a cruel lie.

Easy and quick money attracts like magnet and a large number of people would be affected in course of time

Money won’t grow on trees. Sooner the consumer realizes this better for the society.  If any company, be it limited, private limited, association of individuals, society or person, is offering huge rate of interest say thirty per cent per annum or more, it is always better to keep off from them.
It is virtually impossible to give so much rate of interest for anyone. The case in point is the recent scam of NMart a.k.a. NewLook Retail Ltd. The company floated by Surat-based Gopal Singh Shekhawat offered enormous returns on a simple investment of Rs. 5,500. Every member, who is attractively called distributor though he hardly distributes anything, has to pay an initial amount of Rs. 5,500 and he would be given a suit length worth about Rs. 1500 (many members did not receive them that is another matter) and 48 vouchers each costing Rs. 220 that has to be exchanged in the next 48 months with products in the retail malls of NMart.
NMart first registered and collected money from the ‘distributors’ all over country and later started malls, which is a misnomer. Almost all these malls have products like biscuit packets, kurkure, soft drink bottles and very few toiletries.
NMart has also offered Rs. 200 per enrollment of new members into the scheme. If a member enrolls 50 members he would get Rs. 10,000 that means he got hundred per cent returns on enrollment alone.
Apart from commission on enrollment, the members are offered gifts like computers, motorcycles, luxury cars and even foreign jaunts and many more if they enrolled prescribed number of members into the scheme. 
And by exchanging coupons with products in the next 48 years he would get 220x48= 10,560. It is again hundred per cent appreciation of what he invested in four years.
There is one more offer, if a member purchases products worth Rs. 1500 every month for the next 48 months, he would be given an incentive of Rs. 11,000. This is again hundred per cent appreciation of his initial investment of Rs. 5500. It is all very inducing for the common man to simply brush it off.
Where does the NMart get all these money from? Nobody questions. The greedy people enrolled speedily and it spread like a wildfire. Like all Ponzi schemes, the NMart would pay the early birds from the payments of late birds and once chain breaks, he would vanish with all the money. 
If any NMart member has any problem like breach of contract he has to go to Surat to file a civil suit and it is impossible to go to Surat to claim a settlement for the money he invested in the company as the expenses are far more than his investment.
Anyway, he has already started enjoying life with people's money going around on a helicopter and a Rolls Royce.

Corporate Frauds Watch, Vijayawada-based civil society organization, smelled rat in it and lodged a complaint with the police way back in 2010. The police as usual were complacent to such complaints and let it grow. However, Gopal Singh Shekhawat, like all Ponzi scheme operators, filed a writ petition in the AP High Court and the police stopped the investigation stating that there is a writ petition pending in the high court.
By 2012, the membership of the company has touched almost 1.5 million. Corporate Frauds Watch has been lodging complaints with various agencies all over the State. Finally, the Prakasam district police under the guidance of its dynamic and incorruptible IPS officer Dr N Raghurami Reddy went ahead and took the complaint on file. The rest is history.
Gopal Singh Shekhawat filed another writ petition in AP High Court questioning the propriety of Corporate Frauds Watch but it was dismissed as withdrawn on October 9, 2012.
Money won’t grow on trees and sooner the people realized this better for the society.
Wake up Consumers! Don’t fall for the easy and quick money.

 इस प्रकार की कंपनियों की कार्यप्रणालियों को समझने के लिए एक विशेष सैल गठित किया जा रहा है, जो तकनीकी के फेर से संचालित होने वाली इन कंपनियों के वास्तविक मंतव्य को समझ कर इनके द्वारा किए जाने वाले अपराध का आकलन करेगा। बीरप्पा मोईली ने बताया कि अब तक 3000 से अधिक कंपनियों के गड़बड़ झाले के बारे विभिन्न जांच एजेंसियों को सूचना मिल चुकी है। विभिन्न प्रकार के विश्वसनीय घरेलू उत्पादों को विश्वसनीय तरीके से लोगों तक पहुंचाने वाली कंपनियों के नियमन के लिए सरकार जल्द ही संसद में बिल पास करेगी। जिस से नेटवर्क मार्केटिंग में नियमों के दायरे में रह कर तथा अपने स्थाई कार्यालय स्थापित कर ईमानदारी से काम करनेवाली कंपनियों को काम करनेका माहौल दिया जा सके। उधर EOW  मुंबई की ओर से जारी एक बयान में कहा गया है कि कोई भी व्यक्ति किसी भी कंपनी में पैसा लगाने से पहले कंपनी के डायरैक्टर, कंपनी के कार्यालय कंपनी के वैधता संबंधी प्रमाण पत्र, कंपनी केउत्पाद इत्यादि के बारे में.पूरी-पूरी जानकारी हासिल कर ले तथा किसी भी प्रकार का संदेह होने पर EOW (economic offences wing)  मुंबई व दिल्ली कार्यालय को संबंधित जानकारी मुहैया करवाए। उधर केरला सरकार ने भी उक्त सभी माध्यमों के जरिए लोगों को ठग रही कंपनियों पर प्रतिबंध लगा दिया है। इंश्योरेंस के जरिए अपने नेटवर्क विस्तार में लगी कंपनियों को भी केरल से खदेड़ा जा रहा है। केरल में काम करने वाले नेटवर्करों को भी अब बिना परिचय पत्र किसी से मिलने पर मनाही है। इंश्योरेस के माध्यम से लोगों को लाखों का चूना लगा चुकी डाफिन टच व टीएलसी जैसी कंपनियां भी अब केरला सरकार के निशाने पर हैं। नेटवर्क कंपनियों पर संदेहस्पद कंपनियों के एजेंटों के बारे तुरंत EOW  के नंबरों पर तुरंत कॉल करें।

नेटवर्क मार्केटिंग के नाम पर गरीबों से लूट

ग्वालियर (15 अक्टूबर)! आज कल नेटवर्क मार्केटिंग के नाम पर गरीबों एवं बेरोजगारों को लूटने का खेल खुलेआम चल रहा है. आज कल ढेरों ऐसीं कंपनिया बाजार में आसानी से देखि जा सकती है जो बेरोजगारों एवं गरीबों को आसानी से पैसा कमाने के तरीके बताते हुए अपनी कंपनी से जुड़ने की बात करते है. कंपनी से जुड़ने के लिए एक निश्चित रकम चुकानी होती है.
कंपनी से जुड़ने के बाद ये कंपनी नेटवर्क मार्केटिंग के नाम पर अपने प्रोडक्ट को महंगे दामों पर बेचने के लिए लिए बाध्य करती है, इनका बिजनेस मोडल या तो पिरामिड सिस्टम पर आधारित होता है या फिर बाइनरी सिस्टम पर जो की "प्राइज चिट्स एंड मनी सर्कुलेसन एक्ट 1978 (बैनिंग) के तहत अवैध होता है एवं पकडे जाने पर 3 साल के करावाश का प्रावधान है.
इस प्रकार की अवैध कंपनिया पहले युवकों को स्वर्णिम स्वप्न दिखतीं है और फिर दावा करतीं है की अगर आपको अपने इन सपनो को साकार करना है तो कंपनी के साथ जुड़ कर नए सदस्यों को जोडीये.
इस समबन्ध में जब हमारी टीम ने ग्वालियर के जिलाधीश पि.नरहरी से बात की तो उन्होंने कहा की अभी तक इस प्रकार के किसी भी कंपनी के सञ्चालन से सम्बंधित कोई सिकायत नहीं आयी है, अगर कोई सिकायत आती है तो दोषियों पर अविलम्ब कार्यवाई की जाएगी.
इस प्रकार के कंपनी से जुड़े एक व्यक्ति ने नाम न छपने के शर्त पर बताया की उन्हें मीडिया एवं उन व्यक्तिओं जो की कंपनी के बारे में ज्यादा जानकारी देने को कहते है, से दूर रहने को कहा जाता है.
यही कारण है की इस प्रकार की कंपनी से जुड़ने वालों में से ज्यादात्तर गाँव के कम पढ़े लिखे लोग ही सामिल है.

NMart trying to enroll new members

NMart is on an enrolling spree of new members into the scheme in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh. According to reports from these two states, the NMart has been trying to kindle some hope among its existing members by spreading outright lies. No need to say that these lies would not serve any purpose and people have realised that it is a fraud.
Some of the lies include: NMart has got transferred the Writ petition from Andhra Pradesh High Court to Bombay High Court and Shyam Sundar could not come to Mumbai to contest the case and NMart is going to win it.
NMart troubles would be over soon and they could start the business soon and every NMart member would be compensated for the loss they suffered so far.
However, the reality is otherwise.
The writ petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court is dismissed as withdrawn and it simply is not possible to transfer writ petitions to other high courts.
Gopal Singh Shekhawat, the kingpin behind the racket is still hiding in some rat hole afraid of peeping out at least once in a while. If he comes out, the police would catch hold of him immediately and put in a prison.
Surprisingly, no NMart member is asking the natural question as to why Gopal has failed to clear the their doubts and why he is hiding if he believes that his business is legal. Actually, Gopal has made enough money to live comfortably through out his life and he least bothers to get the business restarted.
Now he is only trying to make as much money as possible in other States where there are no criminal cases filed against NMart. Once the police got wind of the criminal cases in South Indian States, they would also file criminal case against NMart and more people would lose their money.
Corporate Frauds Watch appeals to people not to fall prey to the evil designs of NMart and not to lose their hard-earned money.

AP High Court dismisses NMart writ petition as withdrawn


WRIT PETITION NO.  27101 OF 2012


          Learned counsel for the petitioner seeks permission to withdraw the Writ Petition, with a liberty to file a fresh Writ Petition. Permission is accorded.   
          The Writ Petition is, accordingly, dismissed as withdrawn giving liberty as prayed for. No costs.    Miscellaneous Petitions, if any, filed in this Writ Petition shall stand closed.   Registry is directed to return certified copies of documents, if any, filed in the material papers of the Writ Petition, after the same are substituted with photocopies.






This must have occurred after our counsel left the court hall.

Anyway, the counsel of NMart withdrew the petition filed in AP High Court after the Single Judge Bench asked the NMart counsel to produce the other FIRs he mentioned in his plea.
After that, the counsel appealed to the Judge to allow the withdrawal of the writ petition.
In essence, the NMart could not get any relief from the AP High Court and now the police could continue their investigation and the arrest of the fugitive Gopal Shekhawat is imminent.
The police may ask for the complete record of people who joined the scheme and who got how much commission in the money circulation scheme. There may be several hundreds of thousands people who got sizable amount as commission and they are all liable for prosecution as per the law.

Reality-inverting propaganda by Lyoness apologosit

I observe that a tedious person signing himself/herself 'SMRnana' has posted reality-inverting propaganda (in the form of a scripted-comment) on Corporate Frauds Watch, in defence of the European-based 'income opportunity' racket known as 'Lyoness.'
In brief, 'SMRnana,' has claimed that 'Lyoness' is just an innocent cash-back company which he uses to do a bit of discount shopping, and that anyone who says otherwise, has some hidden dishonest motive or does't understand how the company functions.
Sadly, we've heard essentially all of this familiar bullshit before from the transparent propagandists of other 'income opportunity' racketeers.
If 'Lyoness' really is just an innocent cash-back company, as 'SMRnana' pretends, then perhaps he/she could offer an explanation to the free-thinking readers of CFW as to exactly what was happening at the pay-through-the-nose-to-enter 'Lyoness' mass-meeting which features in this alarming video. 

Self-evidently, all these deluded people have not joined 'Lyoness' just to do a bit of discount shopping. They have signed up in the false belief that they are all going to make lots of money by recruiting their friends and relatives.
The quantifiable evidence proves beyond all reasonable doubt that 'Lyoness' has been the corporate front for a classic 'prosperity gospel' cult, and that its instigators are racketeers who have been peddling an unoriginal Utopian lie.

Andhra Pradesh High Court refuses to grant any relief to NMart

Justice K C Bhanu on Tuesday heard the arguments of NMart's counsel in the writ petition filed by NMart which is accused of indulging in money circulation schemes and criminal cases were filed against the company.
The counsel for NMart pointed out that the police have been registering more FIRs against the company when the writ petition is being heard in the High Court. However, when Justice Bhanu asked for the copy of second FIR he could not show.
The counsel requested the Bench to grant interim stay on the investigation into the case against NMart.
Justice Bhanu said that when the original plea under the writ petition was not maintainable how could an interim stay could be granted. He refused to grant any relief to the NMart.
When the NMart's counsel appealed to give more time, the hearing is adjourned and would be heard only on Dasara vacation.
In effect, the members of NMart have to wait till at least October 29 to know their fate which would anyway be sealed by then.
It is a lesson to the greedy people who want to make fast buck by way of cheating their own friends and relatives though they knew well that it is a crime.
People like Gopal are always try to make easy and quick money by playing with the greediness of people who too want easy money. Ultimately, it is Gopal who made wads of money laeaving several lakhs of people  in the lurch.
The smooth talk of such crooks is the most dangerous part in our society which would be broken with mistrust among people.

My Dear Fellow Indians and world citizens! Do not fall for the easy and quick money lure. 
There is nothing like that. These crooks are out there to grab your hard-earnings.

NMart writ did not reach the Bench for hearing on Monday

The writ petition No. 27101/2012 filed by NMart in Andhra Pradesh High Court was listed for Monday with the number 127 in the list of petitions to be heard.
However, the writ petition did not reach the Bench at the end of day at 4. 15 p.m. The petition is listed again for Tuesday with the number 111. However, it is unlikely to reach the Bench even Tuesday also. 
If it does not reach the Bench on Wednesday also, it may be posted for next Monday.
The NMart filed the Writ of Mandamus to declare the action of the police officials in interfering with the civil disputes of the petitioner as illegal, arbitrary and appealed to the court to set aside the proceedings pending against the petitioner in FIR No. 154 of 2012 dated 23.8.2012.
The writ mentioned Corporate Frauds Watch as the fourth respondent.
In the earlier arguments, the government pleader assured the court that the police would not at all interfere in the civil disputes but would only act on the criminal activity of the company. However, Justice K C Bhanu directed the government pleader to file the affidavit.
It is most likely Justice K C Bhanu may dismiss the writ petition and that would empower the police to go ahead with the arrests of more people who joined the scheme and made others join. 
Anyway, since the Government had extended assurance that the police would not interfere in civil disputes but it is the criminal case that they would like to investigate, the police would go ahead with investigation in all the NMart malls through out the State and look for any other bank accounts to be frozen.
Corporate Frauds Watch has been warning for the last several years not to fall prey to the evil designs of these crooks and it is sad that many people are falling for the bait of easy and quick money. They are easily carried away by the tall promises of huge returns by these crooks.
It is hoped that people would realise the futility of joining such schemes for easy and quick money and save their money for their kids instead of giving away to Gopals, Amways and others. 

The 'lie' fundamental to all 'MLM/Direct Selling income opportunity'frauds

I think that we should again remind your free-thinking readers that it is universally accepted that lying to, or withholding key-information from, people in order to take their money, is fraud which is a form of theft. However, common-sense reveals that, by 'passing any law, but failing to enforce it, has the effect of authorizing (but not legalizing) the very crime which you are trying to prohibit.' 
Bearing the above in mind, I observe that various intellectually-castrated commentators have recently appeared on 'Corporate Frauds Watch' who, on the one hand, have freely-accepted that certain 'MLM' schemes (like 'NMart') have been frauds prohibited by Indian criminal law banning money circulation schemes. However, on the other hand, they keep insisting that these criminal 'MLM schemes' can't have been authentic 'MLM schemes,' because 'MLM' is a lawful 'Direct Selling Business Model.'
As ever, none of these latest 'MLM' propagandists can produce any independent quantifiable evidence in the form of audited accounts (particularly, income-tax payment receipts) to support the absurd fairy story entitled 'lawful MLM/Direct Selling.'  
As you know, about 15 years ago, I coined the common-sense phrase: 'premeditated, or dissimulated, closed-market swindle,' in order to deconstruct all Ponzi schemes, pyramid frauds, money circulation games, chain-letter scams, etc. The lie which is fundamental to all 'closed-market swindles' is that people can earn income lawfully by contributing their own money to participate in any alleged 'profitable commercial activity' which is secretly an economically-unviable fake, due to the fact that the alleged 'profitable commercial activity' has no significant, or sustainable, source of revenue other than its own participants.
For more than 50 years, in the USA, 'MLM/Direct Selling income opportunity' racketeers have been allowed to dissimulate closed-market swindles by offering their victims various banal, but grossly-over-priced, products, and/or services, in exchange for unlawful payments, on the pretext that 'MLM' products and/or services, can then be regularly re-sold for a profit in significant quantities. However, since no gang of 'MLM' racketeers has ever proved that 'MLM'wampum has actually been regularly re-sold directly to the general public for profit in significant quantities, 'MLM' participants have, in fact, been peddled infinite shares of their own finite money.
In the final analysis, other than their ephemeral external presentations, internally there is no real difference between all closed-market swindles; for any alleged 'opportunity to make money,' wherein (when challenged, and/or rigorously investigated) the promoters are unable to provide independent quantifiable evidence to prove that their alleged 'profitable commercial activity' has had any significant, and sustainable, source of revenue other than its own participants, is self-evidently a dissimulated closed-market swindle.

Gemini Techno fleeced Rs. 20 crore in the name of multilevel marketing

Rajahmundry-based Gemini Techno private limited started selling various products under the business model of direct selling a few years back including products like idli stand and other kitchenware material. According to the business model, a person who wants to become a distributor of Gemini Techno has to pay about Rs. 3,000 and he would be given some products and if he enrolls more members into the scheme he would be given a commission of Rs. 200 per membership.
Many people bite the bait and become members. After finding it very difficult to enroll more members into the scheme they started blaming their fate for joining the scheme.
The scheme ran for several years and within a short span of few years, Gemini Techno chief made about Rs. 20 crore. Police filed a criminal case against the company and like all the crooks, the Gemini Techno preferred to file a writ petition in the AP High Court  appealing it to declare its business model legal.
They started the racket once again showing the writ petition copy to the police. Though the High Court did not grant any relief, the police remained silent and did not take any action. The racket continued for a few more months.
After learning that the Gemini Techno filed the writ petition, Corporate Frauds Watch filed an implead petition in the writ petition filed in the AP High Court.
The writ petition reached the Bench in 2011 and Corporate Frauds Watch’s counsel appeared in the court. The division bench comprising Justice Goda Raghuram and Justice Ramesh Ranganathan heard the arguments of the counsel of Gemini Techno.
Counsel of Corporate Frauds Watch waited patiently for his turn to present the arguments. However, the justices kept on shooting questions one after another and the counsel of Gemini Techno faltered to answer their queries. Justice Ramesh Ranganathan asked the last question that the company is selling idli stand and other kitchen appliances but what is techno in it. That was the last straw on the camel's back, and the defense argument collapsed.
The writ petition was dismissed and the police arrested all the directors of the company and confiscated the properties of the company freezing all the bank accounts of Gemini Techno.
That was the end of a multilevel marketing company.

The MLM apologists conveniently ignore the latter letter by the Secretary of Consumers Affairs

Often multilevel marketing apologists quote the letter written by secretary, consumer affairs, Government of India which is blatantly misused.
They conveniently or out of ignorance never mention the follow up letter written by the same department on 23-09-2003. It is herewith being produced verbatim for the convenient of our free-thinking readers as well as ignorant or cunning members of MLM companies.

F.No. 21/(22)/IT/2001
Government of India
Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution
Dept of Consumer Affairs

Shastri Bhavan, New Delhi
Dated 23.09.2003
Ms. Sunitha Kalla,
 Dy Director General & Joint Secretary
Ministry of Finance, Dept of Revenue,
Central Economic Intelligence Bureau
6th Floor, B Wing Janpath Bhavan
Janpath, New Delhi

    Subject:  Applicability of the Provisions of the Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978  to pyramid marketing structure/schemes - Regarding.
      I am directed to refer to your D.O. Letter No. 301/15/2001-CEIB (Pt-II) dated 22nd September 2003 addressed to Shri Wajahat Habibullah, Secretary (Consumer Affairs) on the subject mentioned above and to say that this department was considering the issue of direct selling/network/multi-level marketing as an alternative form of marketing of goods and the entire issue was looked from that angle. However, subsequent feed back/response have showed that companies using pyramid structured marketing techniques too sell their products putting forth their schemes based on the clarification issued vide D.O. letter of even no dated 31st March, 2003 claiming that their activities also do not fall within the provisions of the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978. It is clarified that this Department's clarification of even number dated 31st March, 2003 does not cover pyramid structured marketing schemes. That area also does not fall within the purview of this Department.

This is issued with the approval of Secretary (CA).

Yours faithfully
Alice Chacko
Under Secretary of Govt of India

Copy to : Chief Secretaries of all States and Union Territories.

The letter of Consumer Secretary was annulled by this letter on the reference of Central Economic Intelligence Bureau, Government of India. 
Still, Gopals, Mallappas and plethora of other apologists refer the same annulled letter.  It is nothing but cheating once again after stealing billions of rupees from millions of people

Gopal cheated millions showing empty papers as Supreme Court order

Just watch this video which was taken when Gopal Shekhawat was opening NMart's Bhopal branch. The video is self-explanatory. 
Gopal was very confident to tell the blatant lie to the gullible that there is a Supreme Court order allowing his company to continue his business. He asked them to show the Supreme Court order to the police when they were confronted to arrest them under money circulation scheme enactment. But he never handed over the copy of it to anyone. Nor he could produce it to the Andhra Pradesh police when he was arrested and about to be shifted from Mumbai. It is proved beyond reasonable doubt that Gopal is a number one cheat. So he knew from the beginning that the police would come after him and his business associates for indulging in money circulation scheme.
It is also proved beyond reasonable doubt that he lined his pocket with ill-gotten easy and quick money. Only his advocates somehow managed to obtain the bail for him and he now became the fugitive running away from the law-enforcing agencies hiding in a rat hole.
Still, his 'devotees' praise him and hope that NMart would be revived soon. They refuse to believe that NMart is gone and so is the hundreds of crores the crook Gopal has garnered from public. They also blindly believe that there would be a comeback for NMart.
My dear fellow Indians! This is the true colour of all these crooks who are out to cheat you in the name of multilevel marketing, network marketing, referral marketing, direct selling so on and so forth.
The Supreme Court has rightly said in its judgement in Kuriachan Chacko case. The organisers of such schemes   know well that it is mathematically impossible to run the schemes forever. They also know that the chain is going to break sooner than later. Still, they induce people to become members. That is why Section 420 of Indian Penal Code is applicable while filing criminal case against such crooks under the provisions of Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.
It is a classic case to be presented to the law enforcing agencies and law makers to prove that there is nothing like infinite chain and ask them to desist from making any guidelines or regulations in favour of the multilevel marketing.
For the last several years Corporate Frauds Watch has been cautioning the public not to lose their hard-earned money to these crooks. They are overpowered by greed to earn easy and quick money. This is how the crooks have been cheating the gullible in the name of multilevel marketing.
Some of our friends who lost their money and vociferous in defending the fugitive Gopal say that they have no time even to see the video (LoL).

Sajeev Nair of Monavie arrested

By God's grace I received the 'India Today Business Wizard 2010' for Kerala on Nov 27, 2011

 from the Hon. Chief Minster, Shri Oommen Chandy. I am being honored by India Today for the 

contributions I have made as an entrepreneur, author and life coach.


That was the past.

Now the present.

Sajeev Nair is arrested for indulging in money circulation scheme as head of the Monavie. 

Sajeev Nair former head of Amway India. He joined Monavie and  started enrolling members 

into the scheme.

Kerala police arrested Sajeev Nair on the charges of promoting illegal money circulation 


In a less than a year, the India Today Business Wizard 2010 for Kerala has become an 

accused in money circulation scheme scam. It seems India Today did not look into what the 

business model was and whether the business he was into was legal or not.

This is how the national media is carried away by the misinterpretation by the multilevel 

marketing companies about the legality of their business.
