She paid $29 million for it in early 2005, and renovated the condo from about 8,300 square feet of raw space into a five-bedroom pied-à-terre.
    Clearly, while the desperate masses are on autoship for Nu Skin, the founders and top reps are living the lifestyle of the rich and famous off of their backs. Adam Baker's story about this purchase is factual.

    She paid $29 million for the place in 20005...

    But guess what she got for that kind of money?

    A fixer-upper!


    The $30 million bought 8,200 square feet of raw space - little more than concrete walls and floors and basic bathroom fixtures. Ms. Tillotson, an executive vice president, director and co-founder of Nu Skin Enterprises, had to bring in her own design team to create a living space, at a cost of millions more.

    I wonder what Adam Baker himself is up to these days?

    Doesn't seem to be much about him that's new on the net.

    Wherever he is, he must be in all his glory seeing the publicity Sandie is getting because of that great book he wrote!

    Would be great to locate him and have a lovely chat with him also!

    This is red hot news. Thanks "scratchy." I will make sure that this news reaches Scamland thread.

    Doc has started a new thread about the real news behind the sex and sensationalism, where the real issues are discussed and I am anxious to get real journalists in UK to read that thread and ignore the Murdoch type sleaze. I can not find that link at present as I forgot to bookmark it last night but when anybody replies to this thread please link to it and add that story.

    SBM has also started a serious thread about NuSkin's business model in China and it is worth your reading that one.

    Re: Adam Baker's Banned Book: "My Scandalous Life with a Billionaire Cougar" NuSkin's Sandie Tillotson

    More corroboration of Adam's story.

    From his book:


    WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS

    Chapter 10

    Sandie and I, with our friends Sherri and Spencer Plummer decided that the Britney Spears concert in Vegas was an event not to be missed. Spencer and Sherri were an unusual pair. Spencer, a handsome, tall, dark haired retired CPA, had made his millions showing other millionaires how to take advantage of the tax loophole created by owning livestock and racehorses. Most of these people had never seen the horses they owned, most had never ridden a horse, but they enjoyed the millions in tax relief from claiming interest and ownership in foreign “breeding” operations and shady horse sperm trading...
    So how did that deal about millions in tax relief from horse sperm trading work out anyhow?

    Racehorse breeding tax shelter operators plead guilty (US)

    Oh, look. Rich folks may be wearing stripes, again.



    They got caught in a cash for foals scam by donating lots of dough to racehorse breeders so they don’t have to pay taxes and can afford more jets, or something.

    Anyway, they got caught and decided to say okay, we did it, because nothing much is going to happen to them anyway.

    Well, that’s how we see it.

    Let the always adorable Associated Press tell it really is:


    "Federal authorities say three men have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in a scheme that allowed wealthy people to get tax benefits from investments in Thoroughbred horse breeding.

    The U.S. attorney’s office for Oregon said Monday the scheme cost the federal government $200 million in tax revenue.

    Acting U.S. Attorney Kent Robinson says the scheme was nationwide.

    The government identified the three men as David Plummer; his son, Spencer Plummer; and an accountant, Terry Green.

    The government says the operation known as ClassicStar was based in Utah, where Spencer Plummer and Terry Green lived. David Plummer was identified in court documents as a Texan.

    No sentencing date was set.”

    What's even more interesting is a follow up comment by a reader obviously aware of this scam...


    David and Lee Brower not only promoted this scam put adulterated the deal in such a fashion that many Utah millionaires got involved. Among them Terry Dhiel Nu Skin co founder Sandie & Craig Tillotson and several others.

    Lee is just as much a scammer as the rest of the bunch and Sandie has since dropped him from payroll as her investment advisor. Lee also threatened Sandie’s European ex husband Dietrick Van N. who came to Lee’s office to sign over the marital properties, to accommodate a harmonious divorce between him and Sandie. (Very reliable sources).

    Now Lee banks on selling little rocks to profit from “gratitude.”

    Quite a character.

    Nu Skin is in the line of fire of Mr. Atlas. Nu Skin doesn't have chance.

    Miss Tillie does like those muscle men, doesn't she? If she doesn't use NuSkin, wonder what she uses, Botok, everything money can buy... Seems like the money has more muscle than the men do. She got both books banned, didn't she?? Bet she won't keep them quiet forever and people can still read them.

    David and Lee Brower not only promoted this scam put adulterated the deal in such a fashion that many Utah millionaires got involved. Among them Terry Dhiel Nu Skin co founder Sandie & Craig Tillotson and several others.

    Dissonance, indeed:




    Considering it costs a minimum of US$100.00 on autoship to remain active BEFORE expenses, the average earnings the great majority of US based NuSkin distributors are pathetically low.
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

    I also read online about the drama surrounding Ron Gratzinger and some of her other lovers. She truly has a screw lose but gets away with it because of her wealth which enables her to manipulate reality. Exactly that is at trial here; the ability of the 1% of the super wealthy to abuse and manipulate the 99% who can't defend them self.
    Speaking of Ron Gratzinger, I take it that it's this gentleman?

    I guess he just couldn't get far enough away from the cougar after experiencing what she's capable of once she's pissed.

    Yeah, but what does it say?

    I see some of Diederik's chapters are back up - the one about meeting Sandie isn't.

    I've temporarily removed some of the "Sample Chapters" to honor the pending legal proceedings. I am confident that all of the chapters will be reactivated soon
    Fair enough.

    But just to be safe, I think I'll post those missing chapters in the Diederik thread. I know there is a link to a pdf copy, but I'll format them just as they were on his website to make for easy reading.

    Re: Adam Baker's Banned Book: "My Scandalous Life with a Billionaire Cougar" NuSkin's Sandie Tillotson

    After a rather harsh review of his book, I received a polite email reply from Adam Baker.

    As I had supposed, he left out many, many experiences he had during his involvement with Sandie Tillotson and focused on those stories that would entertain (and warn!) a male audience on the benefits and drawbacks of being a "kept" man of a billionaire older woman.

    Well, a controlling, paranoid, amoral older woman who relied on cosmetics, not health, to appear attractive.

    Adam doesn't portray himself as an innocent victim - he actually had an pretty accurate intuition that his relationship with Sandie would be a stormy one, filled with difficulties - but his portrait of Sandie is devastating.

    And all too truthful, to judge by the enormous efforts her lawyers are making to make this memoir "disappear". I don't think they will succeed.

    It is a short, fun read and a fascinating look into the world of the ultra, ultra rich few people on this planet will experience.

    If Sandie Tillotson was a woman who took excellent care of her face and figure, a woman who treated her romantic partners like fellow human beings, this book could have never been written.

    That last sentence is the truth isn't it!

    I can't wait for Diederik van Nederveen's book to come out! This is a brilliant analogy!
