Zeekers Targeted As Early Ponzi-Board Rift Develops Over Promo For ‘My Fun Life’; Lawsuits Involving Other MLMs Make Headlines
UPDATED 4:04 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) It has been another miserable PR week for MLM.
Some members of the alleged Zeek Rewards Ponzi- and pyramid scheme now are receiving over-the-top emails for an emerging travel-membership “program” known as “MyFunLife,” a source tells the PP Blog.
Meanwhile, executives from a longstanding MLM company are suing each other in Utah while other baffling cases involving upstart MLMs remain in the courts.
The nascent My Fun Life “program” appears already to have sparked a thread deletion at the DreamTeamMoney Ponzi forum — after two posters complained that a huckster had purloined sales content and used it to recruit downline members. (More on the DreamTeamMoney pitch below. First, the email pitch . . .)
According to a PP Blog source, Zeekers were emailed a MyFunLife affiliate offer that blared, “There is a CHANGE taking place in our industry . . . Something SO BIG, SO NEW, and SO COMPELLING I just have to SHARE IT with you . . .”
The email hype-fest went on to declare My Fun Life “a revolutionary company in the emerging MOBILE APP Industry that’s about to take the world by STORM. They are in the process of building the largest GLOBAL NETWORK of their kind by introducing the HOTTEST APPS in the HOTTEST MARKETS!”
The pitch appeared below a subject line of “This will be BIGGER and SAFER then Zeek, and it’s LEGAL! You’ll thank me later! ONLY $21 THAT’S IT!!!” The 19-word subject line was backed by five exclamation points.
Here’s how another part of the email pitch read (italics added):
The company is using a 3X10 Forced Matrix Compensation structure with up to 50% check matching (on all your personals) with upfront coding bonuses that pay out weekly! And you can earn up to 7 Levels in the Matrix without having to sponsor or talk with anyone! Hello??? (Sponsoring is only required to get paid on levels 8,9 &10) Its INCREDIBLE and its gonna BLOW UP and it’s only $21 to get in.
As of today, the only content visible on the MyFunLife.com landing page are the words “Coming Soon.” Those words are backed by a series of rotating photographs, including a photo of an attractive blonde woman taking in some sun from a hammock under palm trees.
“They are positioning several big global leaders now and anticipate 200,000 members in the first 6 months!” the email pitch contended. “Please get back with me asap so I can secure YOU a Top position in my matrix prior to launch!”
The now-missing pitch on DreamTeamMoney urged prospects to GET IN “EARLYYYY!!” — in part because the “COMP PLAN” for My Fun Life called for “‘matching’ bonuses up to 50%, and ‘coded bonuses’ to die for -> they are UNREAL!! Launching in 45 countries. Major money and talent behind this.”
As part of the Ponzi-board pitch, the poster shared a plan to “build it fast and hard with . . . solo ads, FB, Craigslist, my list, and more.”
In its early days, MyFunLife appears not to have a presence on other well-known Ponzi boards. Like TalkGold and MoneyMakerGroup, DreamTeamMoney is infamous as a launch pad for scores and scores of fraud schemes, including a bizarre “program” known as “Insectrio.”
Zeek also was promoted widely on the Ponzi boards.
News of the impending debut of MyFunLife came during the same week that MLM was generating more bad headlines in the mainstream press. XanGo co-founder and board member Bryan B. Davis accused the Utah-based firm of looting. Meanwhile, XanGo accused Davis of extortion and incompetent lawyering.
Those lawsuits followed a lawsuit and counter-lawsuit earlier this year by the purported Go Fun Places and JubiMax opportunities, both of which have a presence on the Ponzi boards.
