UPDATED 12:11 P.M. ET U.S.A. Two YouTube promos that asked U.S. military personnel and 20-year retirees to enroll in a purported study piggybacking off a purported “compound medication” to treat pain have been deleted.

The promos were linked last month to “Achieve Community” huckster Rodney Blackburn, who also created a Facebook site to promote “Military Medical Relief 21” (MMR21), the “program” targeted at military members and retirees. The Facebook site now appears to be inaccessible.

One individual Facebook text promo attributed to Blackburn that remains includes four exclamation marks and screams, “Help our soldiers today! Soldiers are being compensated! Soldiers are finding relief from addictive pain medication! Enroll today or spread the word to millions of soldiers!”

A link to a YouTube video appears below the text promo. When clicked, this message appears, “This video has been removed by the user.” The promo appears to have been directed to the official Facebook site of “Army Wives,” a television program on the Lifetime cable and satellite network.

On YouTube, Blackburn asserted that military personnel would be paid for their participation in MMR21, which purportedly is a nonopiate pain cream. MMR21 purportedly is linked to a Wyoming nonprofit registered Jan. 2 and called American Christian Warrior 13 Inc.

Precisely who is running MMR21 and American Christian Warrior 13 is unclear. Also unclear is how the two are related and why the YouTube promos were deleted.

At least one of the YouTube promos referenced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and claimed ingredients contained within the compound had been “approved” without saying whether the medication itself had been approved. On Jan. 16, the FDA said it could not comment immediately. On Jan. 20, the agency declined to comment.

Blackburn featured an individual described as “Dr. Tony” in one of the promos.

At least one website Blackburn said was linked to MMR21 is soliciting information from military personnel. Despite the fact that the site is asking for intensely personal medical information, identification documents and even information on employment and medical insurance, it appears to be hosted at an insecure URL.

Among the questions on the site:

  • Are you pregnant?
  • If pregnant, Due Date[.]
  • Last Menstrual Period[.]

Prospects are solicited to provide information on whether they suffer from one or more of at least 56 medical ailments listed on the site. Examples include menopause, andropause, stretch marks, migraine, nervous disorder, depression, decreased sexual function, hypertension, hypotension and many more.

A message on the site claims, “This form encrypts at the time of submission and will remain secured until it reaches your evaluating Doctor.”

The names of the purported “evaluating” doctors are not disclosed. Also undisclosed is any information on their medical training, licenses held, board certifications and whether they are being compensated by MMR21 or American Christian Warrior. MMR21’s website appears to rotate to CMF10.com, the site that claims forms are encrypted during submission.

How much military members purportedly could earn through MMR21 is unclear. Facebook sites with military themes appear to have been spammed by more than one individual with links to the “program.”

Prior to the YouTube deletions of Blackburn’s MMR21 promos, they were mixed in with his promos for at least three money-cycler schemes with a presence on the Ponzi boards. “Achieve Community,” one of the Ponzi-board “programs” Blackburn is pitching, is under investigation by the Colorado Division of Securities.

Claims about at least two other Ponzi-board “programs” Blackburn is pitching are more absurd than even Achieve claims. Achieve asserts $50 turns into $400.

One of Blackburn’s MMR21 promos claimed, “The American Christian Warrior 13 Non Profit (ACW13) is actively looking for Soldiers to provide acceptance and need [sic] feedback after using our product. [A]nd for feedback there is compensation!!!

“Yes[,] you and other military soldiers can be compensated for this!!!!”

In order to be compensated, military personnel needed to participate in the study and “not be using or agree to stop using your current topical cream,” according to the video by Blackburn.

  1. Whip: note who posted a warning on this facebook page:

    Looks as though one now has to wonder if Charles Andrade and some of the folks behind or promoting “True Vision Global” also are promoting MMR21.

    Have also seen a Facebook post directed at the “U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds,” and a different one that had a headline of “ATTENTION ALL USA MILITARY BRANCHES … – Facebook.”

    The latter one appears to have been removed.

  3. Quick notes: USFreeAds.com, a classified site, also has ads for American Christian Warrior. So, the Zeek Rewards and TelexFree method is in play.

    One ad on USFreeAds.com is titled, “ATTENTION USA SOLDIERS- ACTIVE – RESERVE- NATIONAL GUARD.”

    There is a prompt at the bottom to “Click here to view all my ads.”

    When clicked, the prompt takes you to a page with ads for multiple MLMs or “programs.” One is called “CashForVisits.”

    Another is for Visalus. This ad, in part, claims: “I am so adamant about the success of this opportunity, I will GUARANTEE that you will have a Brand new BMW, in your name, paid for in 90 days following the clear and concise training provided to you.”
