Data Network Affiliates (DNA) Issues Bizarre Announcements; Meanwhile, Narc That Car Promoter Says Repping For NTC Like Working For ‘Census Bureau’

UPDATED 1:57 P.M. ET (March 5, U.S.A) Data Network Affiliates (DNA) announced via email that Chief Executive Officer Dean Blechman has stepped down, according to a member. The announcement came six days after Blechman’s departure — and one day after the company said it launched a “Beta Test” of its ability to gather license-plate numbers.

DNA’s website previously implied the company would be in full launch yesterday, after two previously advertised launch dates in February were postponed.

Why DNA, which lists a Cayman Islands address in its domain registration and lists no address at all in email communications sent to members, chose to wait nearly a week to announce Blechman’s departure to the membership was unclear.

Important news such as the departure of a CEO or top executive normally is announced in advance of the departure as a means of quelling rumors and maintaining continuity and stakeholder trust.

Also unclear is why a domain titled DeanBlechman.com, which uses the same Cayman Islands address as DNA’s website and a DNA-related website known as TagEveryCar.com, redirects to the DNA website.

A person believed to be Blechman contacted the PP Blog Sunday, saying by email that “I am no longer the CEO of DNA. I have no affiliation with the company whatsoever.” The sender’s identity could not be verified immediately, but the Blog believes it was Blechman, owing to follow-up correspondence it received.

It is anticipated that Blechman will contact the Blog later this week to answer questions, although no formal interview has been scheduled. It is unclear if Blechman knows about the DeanBlechman.com domain or approved of its creation.

DNA, which previously had neither a contact form nor a contact email address on its website, now lists a gmail address. gmail is Google’s free email service. A source said tonight that the gmail address was on an autoresponder that sends a message titled “Top 16 Customer Service Issues.”

Item No. 5 on the Top 16 list reads: “The D.N.A. Management is Aware of many FALSE Rumors…The D.N.A. Legal Department is on top of such and is taking Legal Action…You can not become the #1 record breaking company in THE WORLD… Without people taking cheap shots at you…  In the mean time keep on keeping on…”

Meanwhile, Item No. 16 provided an explanation for why the DNA domain was registered in the Cayman Islands. The reason, according to the autoresponder message, was because the company chose “privacy” protection for $5 in a bid to prevent management from having to “put up with 100 stupid calls a day.”

Prior to the numbered items, the autoresponder message claimed: “The D.N.A. company is signing a MEGA MILLION DOLLAR DEAL with a publicly known industry giant. Between this agreement being sign (sic) and the D.N.A. Top Secret Product being announced on March 27th, 2010. (sic)  D.N.A. is positioning itself to be Global Giant.”

The announcement by DNA of Blechman’s departure was ungrammatical, bizarre — and also at odds with information previously released by the company. It even misspelled Blechman’s name.

“Intentions On Going Public,” the email began. “Say Good Bye To Naysayers.

“A public company has to answer to a HIGHER POWER than an AG,” the email said. “A publicly traded company has to answer to the SEC. No messing with them. Ask Martha Stewart.

“Dean Bleckman (sic) on 02/24/2010 stepped down from being the future CEO and any affiliation with D.N.A…” the company email said. “Due to the fact that Mr. Blechman is a Director and High Equity Owner of a high visibility network marketing company could create a conflict of interest. We believe Mr. Blechman to be a very good man and wish him well in any future endeavors.

“There are some who will try to turn the above information against us,” the email continued. “But the truth be known with the intention of taking D.N.A. public it is in our best interest to have management dedicated and with experience on taking companies public.

“DNA is currently interviewing high level marquis executives for the role of CEO,” the company said. “We will keep all our D.N.A. Affiliates informed. All other management is 100% in place and very dedicated and excited about the future of D.N.A.”

Why DNA would say Blechman stepped down from being the “future” CEO is unclear. Only days ago Blechman identified himself as the current CEO, and the company promoted him as such in marketing materials and on conference calls.

Narc That Car Update

A new YouTube video by a Narc That Car (NTC) promoter says that collecting data for NTC is like working for the U.S. Census Bureau. Checks issued by the firm bear the name “National Automotive Record Centre,” the video reveals.

Despite the use of the word “national” in its name and the YouTube video that uses the name of the Census Bureau, NTC is not a government agency.

The video, by NTC promoter “Jah” of the Cash For Car Plates Blog, focuses exclusively on money and does not address any propriety, safety, legal or privacy concerns, defining license-plate numbers as “public” information available for the taking for entry into the NTC database.

“We’re like Census Bureau workers,” the video claims. “We’re collecting public data.”

Some critics have raised myriad concerns about NTC, which is the subject of an inquiry by the BBB in Dallas and the office of the district attorney of Henderson County, Texas.

Among the concerns raised by critics is whether the company could use the license-plate data it collects to create profiles on the movement of people — battered wives living in secret shelters, federal judges, politicians, celebrities, patients of psychiatrists and other medical professionals, members of religious groups and ordinary citizens from coast to coast in the United States.

Some promoters of Narc That Car and DNA have argued that people who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear, raising the specter of a sort of private Big Brother.

Narc That Car promoters routinely suggest that no license-plate numbers are off-limits for entry in the database, which purportedly is being created for companies in the business of repossessing automobiles.

At least one You Tube video promoting Narc That Car — a video that featured footage from a Public Service Announcement by a group of celebrities that had been spliced into the video as though they were promoting Narc That Car — has been removed from YouTube for Terms of Use violations.

That video, by a Narc That Car downline group known as Team Trinity International, formerly existed at this URL:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgLFHH6TaaA&feature=related

Jah’s Cash For Car Plates video for NTC, meanwhile, shows two checks issued by National Automotive Record Centre Inc.  and drawn on NewBridge Bank to demonstrate that Narc That Car pays.

“We’re [going] to show you some real, solid video proof of the money that’s being made here and where you can go with this business,” the video says. “This is awesome.”

Whether Narc That Car pays has not been an issue, however. The issues have centered on how the company pays, whether it is operating a pyramid or Ponzi business model and the propriety, safety and legality of Narc That Car.

The two checks in the video are for $45 and $452.10  — both of which appear to have been drawn Feb. 23.

In the video, the $45 check is used as proof of payment — and the check for $452.10 is used as proof of the type of payments that could come later for Narc That Car members.

“This may be one of our last . . .  videos, because this is the real deal,” the video says. “We can’t go any further. We’re not going to be out here flashing, you know, five-figure checks.”

The video was placed on You Tube March 1.

In a Jah video placed on YouTube Feb. 12, a check featured in the video is written in the name of a different entity: Narc Technologies Inc. The check appears to be drawn on a different bank than the check in the March 1 video, although the video was grainy.

National Automotive Record Centre Inc. was registered as a corporation in Nevada Jan. 12.

  5. HA! Blaming the membership already:

    “put up with 100 stupid calls a day.”

    And now the ‘God” card finally being played:

    “A public company has to answer to a HIGHER POWER than an AG,”

    Seems the ponzi bag of excuses are in full play already.

  9. There are still a few glaring issue that haven’t been mentioned yet for any of these plate scams but I’ll wait until this one is out of ‘beta’ before exposing them.

    It also appears DNA-narc,thatponzi-tageveryponzi-whateverstupidnametheythinkupnext has failed again:

    I don’t believe beta testing helped this at all.

  10. LOL you guys are so skeptic of EVERYTHING. You know I read Scam.com regarding Geniusfund in which everyone called it a pyramid/ponzi scheme, but it is paying and has been for over a year and a half. When do you guys stop being pessimistic and start realizing when your losing money?

    I have never seen a census worker have to sneak around to collect their data.

    Paying does not mean anything. Are you really that slow, or are you just having fun here? Madoff paid for 20 years. Wake up.

  13. Yeah….not too confident on what he has to say.

    This is a great question, and I actually address this in a video I just did on XLER8.

    Twice in 2009 I did not follow my own benchmarks, and guidelines due to personal relationships. Once was with Global Verge, the other was XLER8.

    In both cases instead fo sticking with facts, I allowed my personal relationships with friends in those companies determine how we reported.

    With Global Verge, I revered the category and gave them a chance to change, based on friends asking for me to let up.

    I take full responsibility for this action, and within two weeks realized the corporate leadership had not changed, and came to the conclusion that those I called friends, may very well be involved in the overall culture that has been created.

    When XLER8 left the MLM arena this week and left 6400 reps scrambling, I realized I had once again allowed friendships to interfere with the facts.

    The quarterly report published in November was very clear, if the field did not increase sales of the product, instead of just recruiting new people to fill the void of those leaving, the company would have to focus on different marketing channels.

    I read it, and did not report. I was a true wake up call for me to realize, friendships are great, but facts must be delivered even if it means friendships may be stretched.

    No excuses the buck stops with me. I should never have reversed my stance, and since that time we have continued to focus and gather information on Global Verge.

    I understand in most cases the Scam family and the MLMHelpDesk family do not see MLM in the same light. However, there are some good companies.

    I want to thank you here at Scam for allowing me to post from time to time, and for accepting me as a guest to this community.

    Hope this clears things up.

    And… I promise I will not listen to my upline :)
