DATA NETWORK AFFILIATES: Pitchman For License-Plate Database Cites AMBER Alert, Walmart, Church; Company Website Suggests AMBER Alert Falling Short On Child-Recovery Mission

EDITOR’S NOTE: We have been experiencing intermittent website disruptions this morning and are working to resolve the problem. It’s not immediately clear how long it will take to fix the problem, which is causing the site to go down periodically and the database connection to time out. Our apologies.

A pitchman for Data Network Affiliates (DNA) suggested church parking lots, supermarkets and Walmart were rich targets for members of the multilevel-marketing (MLM) company, which is soliciting prospects to write down license-plate numbers for entry in a database.

Meanwhile — in a sales message on DNA’s website — the company suggested AMBER Alert was falling short in its efforts to recover abducted children and that DNA could help the famous national and state alert system recover abductees for less money.

“ONLY 492 children Since (sic) 1997, has the AMBER Alert program been credited for safe recovery,” the DNA website said on its main page. “DNA could help in such safe recoveries at a fraction of cost (sic) of Amber Alert… If DNA help (sic) save ONE MORE CHILD it’s worth it? (sic).”

The same sales message said, “Our mission is to turn data into dollars.”

DNA, which says it is launching Feb. 16 and already has recruited thousands of people to record plate numbers, operates a business similar to Narc That Car, another MLM that recruits prospects to write down plate numbers while using AMBER Alert’s name.

The DNA pitchman said famous retailers such as Walmart put the address of their stores “right on the receipt,” making it easy for DNA members who are shopping in the stores to enter the information in DNA’s database after they write down plate numbers in the parking lot.

“You walk into the parking lot,” the pitchman said in a DNA conference call recorded Monday. “Guess what? You have vehicles all over the place. You can easily jot down 20 or 30 of them, literally in five or 10 minutes.”

He did not say if DNA members were required to obtain the permission of retailers such as Walmart to record the license-plate numbers of its patrons.

The pitchman, however, did say that 100 million license plates entered into the DNA database could become “the equivalent of just about $1 billion” in potential revenue for DNA.

Another voice on the call said that “the press is going to pick up on this sooner or later.” Earlier, the man predicted a “million or 2 million” people would join DNA by the end of the year. He added that he was so excited that he was having trouble sleeping.

Like Narc That Car promoters, the DNA pitchman in the conference call referenced the AMBER Alert program, imploring prospects to view DNA as an excellent tool for “law enforcement.”

“We’ll be able to reunite families,” he said.

The URL for the DNA was published on the old Golden Panda Ad Zone forum, now known as the Online Success Zone. Narc That Car also was promoted from the old Golden Panda Forum.

Golden Panda is part of the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme investigation.

Narc That Car charges a fee of $100 to join and requires members to submit 10 license plates monthly. DNA charges no fee and requires members to submit 20 license plates monthly. Web records suggest that some people promoting Narc That Car also are promoting DNA.

Listen to the DNA conference call.

  2. LRM,

    Tina appears to be quite enthusiastic.

    It’s interesting that two license-plate MLMs — one of which charges $100, and one of which is free — have appeared.

    Wonder how the folks who plunked down $100 for Narc That Car, plus $24.95 for a website, feel now?

    And I wonder why the enthusiasts for both companies seem not to raise any concerns over privacy and safety and general propriety.

  3. admin: And I wonder why the enthusiasts for both companies seem not to raise any concerns over privacy and safety and general propriety.

    When you say “enthusiasts” do you mean “enthusiasts, as in HYIP ponzi players” ????

    In which case they don’t give a damn WHAT the story which accompanies the “game” is about. Internet social networks or collecting number plates. It makes no difference to the outcome of the “game”

    If, on the other hand, by “enthusiasts” you mean enthusiastic “true believers” Why would they be considering privacy, safety and general propriety ??? It’s quite apparent few, if any of the “true believers” have considered where the money comes from and what possible use a squillion randomly collected license plate numbers could be to anyone.

  4. Quick note:

    The other day we referenced a You Tube video on Narc That Car:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRA-zVWdW3U

    In the video, Jeff Long talks about getting 100 plate numbers at Walmart for Narc That Car.

    Jeff Long also is referenced in the Data Network Affiliates (DNA) conference call cited above, along with a reference to 100 license plates.

    Is there brand confusion between Narc That Car and DNA — or can people who collect plates for one company submit the same plate numbers to the other?

  5. DNA is not free. Well they are free to join but if you want to automate the uploading of information to them instead filling out twenty forms a month by hand then it will cost you.

    I do not think that DNA is seriously interested in “tag the car” concept, as you all have read or listened to the call, those who want to feed the data online has to pay one time $97 and $30 monthly, if one wants to remain as Free member, he has to take a printout of the form, fill it, scan it, and then send them, and for each 20 forms he will get $2. Its not only that we all will get tired and sick of doing all these 20 forms just for $2, instead they too will have to download all the forms one by one and punch it manually, and I do not see that happening when they have hundred and thousands of forms every day to download and punch

    Why on the earth they will have to do this, when all the members can punch the data at their end and also who is going to check these info we enter are real or fake.

    My conclusion is that DNA is not interested in these data, instead they are more interested in $97 and $30 monthly and that’s where they are going to make money from and pay to others and ofcourse they are building a huge database of email id for FREE LOL

    Correct me if I am wrong, and we all will know in couple of days time as to what is the reality, when they start insisting every one to upgrade and how easy it can be for us to make money be bla bla bla.

  6. I would ask everyone to perform some due diligence with this one. Things are not as they seem. Do you not imagine, they could get software that works? I mean, you have 4 or 5 supposed Big Shots at the helm, but the software won’t work?
    The company is registered in the Cayman Islands. Why would that be necessary?
    Why would there be some apparent ‘choice’ to either buy the submitter or just mail your numbers in? Won’t someone have to be paid to do data entry on those thousands of numbers?
    Why would there even be some choice? Why not have a software that is capable of member’s submissions? Blechmann works for Trump Network but can’t afford a $250 script that actually works?
    I mean, what BRAND NEW program have you joined in the past 5 years where you had to tell all your referrals to clear their cache before trying to sign up?
    Something doesn’t add up.
    Don’t be blinded by the dollar signs.

    Just about every one of the MLM forums are discussing NarcThatCar or DNA and most of the discussions are not favorable to either.

    What I do not understand is how Tina can be so excited about a company that has not even opened their doors yet?

  7. entertained:

    do the math

    “Show Me The Money”

    It’s As Simple As “TAG YOU’RE IT”!
    There are no commissions paid for the act of
    sponsoring people into The DNA Opportunity.
    All commissions are based on DATA COLLECTION and on
    the sale of products and services offered by The D.N.A. Company.

    D.N.A. Compensation Plan Update – Full Details

    PHASE ONE – The Uni-Level – With 100% FREE SIGN UP

    Fact: all income generated is from the collection of Data Collected.
    Fact: there is not one dime paid for the act of sponsoring.
    Fact: even the D.N.A. Business Package with Data Entry Software is 100% non-commission-able

    #1. D.N.A. will pay you $2 for each month you turn in data for 20 or more tags.
    #2. D.N.A. pays $2 for each affiliate within your 6 levels of affiliates that turn in data for 20 or more tags within their 1st 30 days of signing up. Anyone who has joined D.N.A. during the pre-launch, their 30 days will start on the day that we start accepting data which is estimated as early as 02/16/2010 and as late as 03/01/2010. D.N.A. has invested a lot of money and over a year of time to create a foundation that will be here for a long time to come. If it takes another week or two to make it a perfect launch we plan on doing so.

    Using the 2 above incomes a person can earn unlimited amount of income.
    You can do the numbers, use whatever multiplication you wish to use.
    Use the power of 10 as the leadership is… use 5 use 20 use 100.
    Any way you add it up – it comes out to a lot of income.
    If you are looking for $1,000 to $2,000 a month you are in the right place.
    If you are looking for the BIG DOLLARS you are in the right place.

    NOTICE ALL OF THE ABOVE INCOME can be earned without a single purchase or sale of any kind just,
    DATA COLLECTION.

    This should put an end to all the naysayers that say that it is impossible for you to earn anything by signing up for free and building a team of 6 levels of free sign ups. Because if all they do is turn in Data Collected as stated above you will be paid as described as long as you do your 20 tags also.

    Affiliate Question: If I personally sponsor 10 affiliates and they personally sponsor 10 affiliates and this is duplicated for 6 levels and not one person buys the package but each person including myself turns in their 20 tags as stated above. Can you tell me how much I will be paid on each level and how I will be paid?

    D.N.A. Answer: First let us say again we do not pay for the act of sponsoring or building a team of people sponsoring. We pay for Data Collection as stated above. To give you the mathematical answer to your above question would be as follows:

    you = $2
    you + 10 1st level x 20 tags = 200 tags pays you $20
    you + 100 2nd level x 20 tags = 2000 tags pays you $200
    you + 1000 3rd level x 20 tags = 20000 tags pays you $2,000
    you + 10000 4th level x 20 tags = 200000 tags pays you $20,000
    you + 100000 5th level x 20 tags = 2,000,000 tags pays you $200,000
    you + 1000000 6th level x 20 tags = 20,000,000 tags pays you $2,000,000

    D.N.A. does not imply nor do we condone telling people they will earn such kind of money with D.N.A. At D.N.A. we believe if the average person could earn an extra $500 to an extra $2,000 a month it is life changing money in this crazy down economy we have going on in the world today, But the numbers are the numbers and you can figure it all out. Just do the simple math.

    D.N.A. will pay affiliates on the 20th of the following month in which commissions are earned and posted for all DATA COLLECTION.

    D.N.A. IS WILLING TO PAY ITS AFFILIATES MORE

    D.N.A. will pay affiliates more when they use The D.N.A. Data Input Software Module to upload all Data Collected and when they personally sponsor others who use The D.N.A. Data Input Software Module to upload all their Data Collected. The following bonuses are paid as a reward for helping D.N.A. save money.

    The Uni-Level – Using The D.N.A. Data Input Software Module.

    When you are using The Data Input Software Module to enter your 20 Tags Monthly:

    1. D.N.A. pays weekly instead of monthly when you use the Data Input Software Module to enter your 20 tags.
    2. D.N.A. pays you $25 instead of $2 for your initial personal 20 data tag inputs within your 1st 30 days when you use the Data Input Software Module.
    3. D.N.A. pays you $27 instead of $2 for each of your personal 1st level affiliates who use the Data Input Software Module system to summit their initial 20 data inputs within their 1st 30 days.
    4. D.N.A. pays a 1% Data Input Tag Pool Bonus. When you use the Data Input Software Module you may input as many tags as you wish to try to earn a part of the 1% pool. This is 1% of the gross sales monthly to be divided in $1,000 awards to go to the people who inputted the most plates in a calender month.
    5. D.N.A. pays a 100% Matching Bonus. When you have personally sponsored 10 affiliates who all use the Data Input Software Module to enter 20 tags each within a calender month.
    6. D.N.A. pays your $29.97 D.N.A. Business Package Monthly Fee for any affiliate who has personally sponsored 10 affiliates who enter 20 tags each using the Data Input Software Module for such calender month.

    “PHASE TWO” The D.N.A. Data Input Software Module BINARY

    The D.N.A. Binary – Selling/Purchasing other Products & Services
    ONLY AVAILABLE TO: Affiliates Who Enter Data Using The Data Input Software Module.

    D.N.A. will make many products and services available for purchase and resale.
    These will be at prices way below what is sold in stores or on the internet.

    The D.N.A. 1/3 – 2/3 Binary With Maximum $50,000 Weekly
    With 100% MATCHING BONUSES on all PERSONALLY SPONSORED

  11. I just thought of a problem for my insidious plan. How will they PAY and where will the money come from? They make no mention of how much clients are paying for the information or who and how many the clients they have.

    They have suggested that they are “building” a data base. Well, that’s not pertinent because they say they will pay 30 days after the start date 2/16 to 3/1.

    I suppose there are some products for sale. Nope, revenue only generated from reps inside the company, I think, would make that an illegal pyramid.

    Where are they going to get the money to pay me right away? If everyone takes advantage of signing up for free and turns in their tags, where will the money come from?

    Let’s do the math and I’ll be fair:

    10,000 reps stay in the first “free” phase at 3rd level (you can go to 6)

    10,000 reps x$2,000(3rd level)=20,000,000 THAT’S 20 MILLION DOLLARS THEY’LL NEED TO PAY OUT. AND, 200 MILLION TAGS TO LOG

    10,000x$200(2nd level)= 2,000,000 THAT’S 2 MILLION DOLLARS AND 20 MILLION TAGS TO LOG

    10,000x$20(1st level)=200,000 TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS AND 2 MILLION TAGS

    They will need $200,000 just to pay reps at the measly $20 first level.

    I’m sure all the reps would like to be at the second level making at least 200.00 to cover their time and effort.

    Feel free to correct me if my math is off.

      (Quote)

  12. Note:

    This math is if 10,000 people reach that level which means each of those people have reps below them so the overall total of reps would be more.

  13. I signed up for free and here is the email I received from them telling me that I now have two web pages.

    THIS WOULD BE A GREAT E-MAIL TO SEND OUT TO PEOPLE…

    NOTE: Terms & Conditions will be updated from needed purchase on unilevel to NO PURCHASE NEEDED…

    Dear Jack you have 8 in your binary downline.

    Focus on your unilevel where the immediate money is earned…

    BEWARE OF NAYSAYERS MANY ARE JEALOUS OF OUR GROWTH… ALWAYS REMEMBER WHAT PEOPLE ARE NOT UP ON THEY ARE NORMALLY DOWN ON… DON’T LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR D.N.A. DREAM…

    ALWAYS REMEMBER D.N.A. IS 100% FREE
    YOU CAN EARN EIGHT STEAMS OF INCOME
    AND NOT SPEND ONE SINGLE DOLLAR OUT
    OF YOUR POCKET – JUST COLLECT 20 TAGS

    You have two websites you can promote.

    Your Website is: JackArons.datanetworkaffiliates.com

    Your Website is: JackArons.tageverycar.com

    MLMERS don’t have a D.N.A. CLUE – We just hit 18,000 new affiliates x’s $2 Bills for tuning in 20 car tags x’s + 6 x $2 since we pay 6 levels = A Potential Maximum Commissions of $252,000 to pay out to the team which was earned in the 1st 8 days from go…

    However if people go with the data software then we have to pay out many times such… to a MAXIMUM of $1,440,000 in full commissions… In just EIGHT DAYS…

    Let compare M.L.M. versus V.A.M.

    Traditional MLM tries to get people to spend $50
    to $100 a month. Which is $600 to $1200 a year.

    The D.N.A. program is 100% FREE…

    Let’s only compare the FREE INCOME PLAN
    versus the MLM MONTHLY PAYING PROGRAM…

    Start with 1000 people in MLM spending $50 a month and let’s say you earn 3% of the total downline would equal 3% of $50 = $1.50 multiplied by 1000 people would equal $1500

    Compare that to D.N.A. 100% FREE 1000 who get their 20 Car Tags DATA = $2 each x 1000 = $2000… BUT HOLD ON…

    Please keep following the logic this will change your M.L.M. thinking to V.A.M. thinking for life forever…

    Since the MLM company is asking for a couple of hundred dollars up front and $50 a month which is $600 a year… The 1000 people may be able to grow to 1200 and max of 1500 people which is consider GREAT… so now we have 1200 x $1.50 for a total of $1800…

    Since D.N.A. FREE is 100% FREE the 1000 could easily sponsor 1 per week and normally that would be 4000 new people… However since it is 100% FREE many of the new FREE would already sponsor other NEW FREE people into DNA giving you a total of up 9000 new people multiply that by $2 would equal $18,000.

    So let’s see convince people to part with hundreds out of pocket and $50 a month for $1800 RESIDUAL or convince them of 100% FREE for $18,000 of NEW $2 EARNINGS…

    No one is saying you will earn $1,800 in M.L.M. or $18,000 in V.A.M. we don’t dare continue this example for another 2 or 3 months… The numbers will be CRAZY…

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    What is Data Network Affiliates aka DNA? D.N.A. is breaking every record this industry has ever set since the beginning of time. Where else can you come into a totally free opportunity and have the opportunity to make more money than other company programs that ask for $300; $400; $500 up front and $100; $200 or more monthly…

    WHY FREE… Does anyone know how much FACE BOOK IS WORTH… BILLIONS and BILLIONS… How about a little company called GOOGLE… Worth BILLIONS and BILLIONS… And then there is AMWAY not free… But also worth BILLIONS and BILLIONS…

    D.N.A. is where Face Book meets Google and goes AMWAY…

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    There are 3 levels of participation with D.N.A.

    There will be 3 types of people in the downline

    a) DNA FREE Affiliate has 8 Income Streams
    b) DNA FREE Affiliate PRO has 20 Income Streams
    c) DNA FREE Affiliate PRO PLUS has 28 Income Streams

    A DNA FREE AFFILIATE can earn up to 8 incomes with MAXIMUM pay of $2,222,220.00 annually. This is not an earning claim we are just saying that this is the MAXIMUM that DNA is willing to pay an affiliate who stays at The DNA FREE AFFILIATE LEVEL…

    1. $2 when they turn in their personal initial 20 plates.

    2. $2 when they turn in their personal 20 Data Tags each month thereafter.

    3. $2 when affiliates, pro affiliates or pro plus affiliates turn in their initial 20 plates on their 1st level.

    4. $2 when affiliates, pro affiliates or pro plus affiliates turn in their initial 20 plates on their 2nd level.

    5. $2 when affiliates, pro affiliates or pro plus affiliates turn in their initial 20 plates on their 3rd level.

    6. $2 when affiliates, pro affiliates or pro plus affiliates turn in their initial 20 plates on their 4th level.

    7. $2 when affiliates, pro affiliates or pro plus affiliates turn in their initial 20 plates on their 5th level.

    8. $2 when affiliates, pro affiliates or pro plus affiliates turn in their initial 20 plates on their 6th level.

    Anyway you want to do the math… anyway you cut it… it pays big time… welcome to D.N.A. #1 V.A.M. Program in The World…

    Now after you do the numbers imagine 20 or 28 income streams when you upgrade to PRO or PRO PLUS…

  14. Absolutely amazing!

    Not one single mention of where the money comes from (i.e. a real product or service not related to silly efforts of writing down car license plates).

    Are people really that stupid that they don’t ask the question, “where does the money come from?”

    I guess so. That’s why all the ponzi schemers make out so well.

    Sad.

    The only “good” thing here is that people can’t lose their homes and retirement savings by plunking down $10,000′s as was the case with SlickAndyB, Bernie Madoff, 12DailyPro, CEP, etc.

    But, in many respects, stealing one’s dreams is almost insidious.

    The “mathematically challenged” will get excited, jump up and down, create various marketing sites and blogs and youtubes (aka Jah) only to have their dreams crushed when the model can’t be sustained or maybe doesn’t even get off the ground (As Clara Peller said in the Wendy’s commercials in the ’80′s, “Where’s the Beef?”).

    Yes, I know the more well educated and well heeled readers and posters will say, “Good Riddance” that’s marketing Darwinism, culling the “not too bright” from the rest of the herd.

    But, that has a negative impact on anyone trying to make a living online. It creates more distrust, more negative blowback, etc.

    Don’t get me wrong, I have no patience for these owners who launch a program with no logical way to generate the income needed to pay the participants.

    But, at least the downside is a lot less than the other scams that Patrick has followed here.

    And, as always, the entertainment value of following the Patrick Pretty Blog is well worth the time!

    Patrick, when does the book come out and who is negotiating for the movie rights? :)

  15. A Random Walk Rant: Not one single mention of where the money comes from (i.e. a real product or service not related to silly efforts of writing down car license plates).

    Are people really that stupid that they don’t ask the question, “where does the money come from?”

    Hi ARWR,

    Not sure if you saw this comment by Entertained:

    http://patrickpretty.com/2010/02/08/now-a-narc-that-car-training-video-shot-by-promoter-in-parking-lot-of-giant-eagle-supermarket-chain-im-not-going-to-talk-to-anybody-narrator-says/comment-page-1/#comment-9084

    A Random Walk Rant: And, as always, the entertainment value of following the Patrick Pretty Blog is well worth the time!

    Appreciate the note. As you’re aware, nonfiction sometimes reads like fiction: AVG announcing its new offshore wire facility on the same day the Obama administration announced a crackdown on international financial fraud, for instance.

    Or Trevor Cook’s submarine, purportedly bought with Ponzi proceeds.

    A Random Walk Rant: who is negotiating for the movie rights? :)

    At this point, I don’t know if it would sell as camp, black comedy, drama or documentary. In any event, the screenwriter would need to be able to turn on a dime, if the need arises. Maybe a cross that somehow captures “Fargo,” the Adam West “Batman” movie and Burt Lancaster’s “Elmer Gantry” would work. :-)

  19. travon,

    If you are looking for a way to sign up for this obviously illegal pyramid scheme I am sure that you can find a way, but probably not here. If you do choose to sign up, let me be the first to congratulate you on your newly chosen life of crime, and the first to say that you are guaranteed to lose your money, AND that frankly, given the obvious warnings, you do deserve to lose your money.

    Then by all means, post the current and past outside revenue source (since people such as yourself have already ‘made’ money) that does not make this a ponzi since you make yourself out to be in the know.
    Seems no one has been able to do that yet……….not surprising though as no outside revenue source exists.

    And why does someone have to pay to “earn some very REAL extra income!”? Why can’t people just collect and enter plate numbers and receive “REAL extra income” without paying like any other legitimate organization or business? Are you charged by your boss at your regular job to show up and do work for him?

    Since you people like to ride on the backs of those that actually work, why are you not doing all this for free since your theft pitch is that of some form of self-perceived moral high ground by invoking the AMBER Alert system and Homeland Security?
    I have posted two AMBER Alert stories that your ‘system’ has already FAILED miserably at.
    If this ‘system’ is so vital to be linked to AMBER Alert in your theft pitches, why are people limited to just 6 plates per month? I would have to believe that information being made out to be this important – as it is being made out to be to make the ‘sale’ – should be entered as much as humanly possible in the shortest amount of time to be even remotely affective.

    Leela,

    You are welcome to share your point of view on DNA/TEC here. Please do so without posting a sales link/URL in the thread. It is considered spamming here and at many, many forums.

    I woke up today to forum spam from a DNA member, then a possible shill looking for a sign-up link appeared and, finally, you posted a sales URL.

    So, that’s three bids in this thread alone from first-time posters either to solicit sign-ups or to volunteer to sign up. DNA’s own salespeople are making it look silly.

  24. Leela,

    Robbing people at gunpoint is also a very REAL opportunity to make extra income, equally illegal, and frankly, is a more honest way to make a living that NarcThatCar or D.N.A. Too ver-the-top, I know, but….consider the math. It has already been proven mathematically that the database has virtually no intrinsic value, and under most scenarios has a negative intrinsic value. Thus, there is no product, and therefore no income from sales to real customers. All you are left with is money being shuffled from the new people signing up to the older upline members, in other words an illegal pyramid. OK, now it is your turn. Disprove either of these statements, but in doing so you better bring data (like validated customers who are in fact paying substantial money for access to the data, enough to at least cover the monies being paid to people — otherwise you got that pesky pyramid/Ponzi thing going), or you better bring coherent, rational mathematical arguments as to why I am wrong about the intrinsic value (or lack thereof) of the database.

  25. It looks like this is a sophisticated scam. Everything is not as it appears…

    Some people may try to collect data and send it in without any fees. However, many more may be gullible enough to pay the apparently 97$ one time and 30$ monthly fees to send in data electronically.

    Before anyone signs up, they need to answer the following questions:

    Where will the money come from to pay out?
    (Their data base will not be worth much until it is complete. Do they actually have buyers for the data now?)

    Why would anyone want to get the license plate numbers, write them down, and send them in for only 2.00 per month?

    Does anyone actually want a data base that has license plate numbers taken at random?

    Who will input all of the data on their end that is written down manually and sent in?

    How long will it take to get all of the license plates in the US?
    (It may only take several months. How will anyone be paid after they have all of the license plates? Why would they want anyone to continue to get license plates they already have? Why would they want a high percentage of duplicate plate numbers?)

    Why would they want license plate numbers that could have mistakes or are completely made up?

    Why do they not give any sources for most of their claims?

    Why would they want everyone to start at the same time? (If the data is actually valuable, why would they not want it at anytime?)

    Why would they test a Beta system with many people collecting data and then delete all of the data?

    Their website says “If DNA help save ONE MORE CHILD it’s worth it?”

    How will this save lives? (They seem to be taking advantage of people’s emotions – many people will sign up for a noble cause).

    Their website states: “We can also help to find Missing Persons. Often there are rewards offered to help find a missing person and we can be part of the solution.”

    Who do you think would get the rewards?

    How valuable are license numbers taken at random (with general addresses) going to be?

    Don’t you think there is already a data base with all of the license plate numbers in it?

    Is it possible that the license plate collection is actually a diversion?

    What will they do with everyone’s e-mail addresses after they sign up? (This data base may actually be worth a lot! They would have a substantial number of e-mail addresses of gullible people who want something for nothing. They are prime candidates for other schemes and sales techniques.)

    Their webpage says: “Contact Data Network Affiliates Information is coming soon!”
    Why can’t you contact them?

    Their privacy policy says: Data Network Affiliates Privacy Policy

    “All information collected during registration is for internal use only by Data Network Affiliates
    and its partner companies. We do not sell or transfer member account information.”
    Who are their partner companies? How will they use the data? Can their member companies sell the information?

    Will they “Rent” or “Lease” your personal information that they collected?

    Their own propaganda tells us that “The data collection business: did over $14 Billion in revenue last year; A 12 point record on an individual is worth up to $35.00 and a 7 point record on a business is worth up to $10.00.”

    How many points of data are they collecting on you when you sign up???!!!

    Their website also says: “The bottom line: The right information will pay for itself. ‘A good mailing list can produce a couple of millions of dollars in sales all by itself,’ says Jim Workman, CEO of BFW Advertising Inc., a Boca Raton, Fla., ad agency that builds and refines list databases for clients. A highly targeted list that produces sales ‘is a corporate asset that’s worth its weight in gold.’”
    What do you think they are actually trying to get?

    Do not be deceived!

    Beware of false profits!
    Beware of false prophets!

    When I am looking for faith, I will talk to a Minister.

    When I am looking for money, I will talk to a qualified accountant – CPA, ACCA, etc etc.

    When I have forgotten my morals and the ethics with which they brought me up and start to believe that my own personal well-being is more important that the general well-being of the society I live in – I’ll join an internet ponzi scheme and start laughing at anyone who has the sense to ask questions about it.

    Then only ‘negative’ from this scam and narc,thatponzi, are from the people like yourself who say ‘no’ when asked to provide proof of legitimate outside revenue that would not make this the ponzi that it is.

  31. What proof do you want? DNA is offering people a free work from home opportunity. What other opportunitys will offer this to you?
    Your not paying anything to start working for this company. Give this company a chance people you have no money to lose.

    How blinmd are you? It specifically says ‘legitimate outside revenue source’.
    You can either state that you do not know or that there isn’t any (which we already know). Who cares what they ‘offer’? Are they also offering to bail you out and supply legal counsel should you need it in the future?
    People need to pay for anyone else to get paid and people WILL lose money….that’s why it’s a ponzi.
