    Advantage Conferences Sued the Dallas Better Business Bureau and Lost in Summary Judgment / Tim Darnell / Jack Weinzierl

    Tim Darnell's Advantage Conferences sued the Dallas Better Business Bureau and lost in Summary Judgment. That adjudicated pyramid scheme boasted having Jack Weinzierl as the stud earner on display who was quite humorously mentored straight into chapter 7 bankruptcy by this obvious scam.

    CERTIFIED MAIL October 26, 2005

    Mr. Timothy Darnell Advantage Conferences LLC 1513 Home Park Drive Allen, Texas 75002

    Dear Mr. Darnell:
    Your recent application for membership in the Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan Dallas, Inc., has been submitted to the membership committee of our Board of Directors for its consideration as required in Article 3, Section 3, of our Bylaws.

    The Membership Committee voted to defer consideration of your application, as you know, until its next meeting on November 21, 2005. So that the Committee can make a well-informed decision, we are requesting additional information.

    The basic principle of the enclosed BBB Code of Advertising indicates the responsibility for truthful advertising rests with the advertiser. Advertisers should be prepared to substantiate any claims, upon request, to the Better Business Bureau. On October 25,2005 the website for Advantage Conferences stated, "The Income Producing System Specifically Designed to Provide Uncommon Income for Common People $7,000.00 over and over and over again: Consequently, we shall appreciate your providing us with 10 individuals who earned the stated amount.

    Additionally, we shall appreciate your modifying your website to eliminate any reference to trademarked or copyrighted text that is in fact not trademarked or copyrighted. In our conversation of October 21, 2005 and again on October 25, 2005, you admitted that MMillionaire Mindset Conference Income Producing System" is not trademarked; however, a review of the site www.advantageconferences.com/vip/income opportunity. asp on October 26, 2005 shows false statements of trademark and copyright. Please make that change by November 1, 2005.

    Finally, please provide a statement as to why Advantage Conferences is not conducting an illegal pyramid scheme. A pyramid promotional scheme Is a plan or operation by which a person gives consideration for the opportunity to receive compensation that is derived primarily from a person's introduction of other persons to participate In the plan or operatio,:", rather than from the sale of a product by a person Introduced into the plan of operation. Enclosed Is page 9 of the "Getting Started E-Package" that the Bureau 'interprets as an Illegal pyramid scheme.

    As one way of fulfilling Its mission to foster marketplace self-regulation, the Better Business Bureau develops reports about companies that are made avaUable to the public. The Bureau reports on members and lion-members alike. BBB reports are Intended to provide inquirers with Information documented In Bureau files.

    Thank you for your cooperation on this matter. Please provide your written response by November 1, 2005.
    Sincerely,

    Christopher Burgess
    Vice President, COO

    Subject: Re: Request to Cease and Desist Defamatory Comments regarding Advantage Conferences, LLC

    Mr. Ciarochi-

    In reply to your letter of 12:34 today:

    1. < On that website, you make many strong and inflammatory allegations regarding my client. These statements are not true. >
    The statements are as true as that you are sitting in your chair at this time. I do not volunteer my time for the sake of consumers without serious analysis, based on extensive research on endless chain schemes such as Advantage Conferences.

    2. <If these statements were posted in haste, my client is willing to forgive a mistake.>
    They were not posted in haste, but based on ten years research of such schemes -which could hardly be classified as haste. And the information on the compensation plan was extracted directly from the web site.

    3. <Demand is hereby made that you remove your website po stings and take the time to conduct a reasonable investigation as to the facts. >
    The latter is already done, more than you or your client realize. In fact, it was the obvious potential for widespread victimization that this scheme represents that led me to post the evaluation of Advantage Conferences in the first place. But to save myself hassle, I plan to remove the posting from the site. You and he will find this a hollow victory, for reasons explained below.

    4. < If my client hears nothing, it will be forced to assume that your website is another cybercriminal trying to earn money at the public's expense.> (Did you really intend to refer to your client as an "it?")
    Now let's see. Who is the criminal in this case? And who is earning money? You certainly don't write threatening letters for your clients pro bono, and your client isn't conducting this scheme out of the goodness of his heart. But I do donate my time to help expose uneconomic schemes such as AC. Please tell your client, who I assume is Tim Darnell, that-

    • I am in frequent contact with law enforcement officials in many states. As you know, some states are more vigilant in acting against these schemes than others.

    • Due to your threatening letter and to compensate for the loss of the evaluation on my web site, I will redouble my efforts to bring this scam to the direct attention of law enforcement officials and consumer protection officials around the country. I plan to send out a bulletin alerting officials about the AC endless chain scheme, which is about as close to a naked pyramid scheme as any I've seen recently. Neither you nor he can stop me from taking this action, if! choose to do so.

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Ciarochi -

    I am double-checking the AC web site to verify all my conclusions re AC. I shall then be forwarding the information to the appropriate consumer protection officials nation wide, as well as the media. It takes time to verify addresses and to identify appropriate officials for this particular type of endless chain recruitment scheme - which it clearly is.
    This all takes time. As I wrote earlier: "But to save myself hassle, I plan to remove the posting from the site. You and he will find this a hollow victory."
    As soon as I complete this process, I plan to remove the posting from the site, and not a moment sooner - so that consumers will have some degree of protection. Law enforcement should ultimately act on this, but often many are victimized before agencies kick in gear.

    Re: Advantage Conferences Sued the Dallas Better Business Bureau and Lost in Summary Judgment / Tim Darnell / Jack Weinz

    Hi Team,



    As some of you know, we applied for Better Business Bureau membership in October of this past year. Their response to us was to take our $375.00 membership fee and post surprisingly erroneous information about our Company. Upon being advised of the posts, we immediately sent the documentation that clearly showed the errors of their posting. To our amazement, they refused to take them down, correct them, or much less apologize for their mistake, establishing a clearly belligerent stance with AC. They offered no contract for enrollment and no explanation of their irresponsible action. We, therefore, are now in the process of litigating against the north Texas chapter (an independent for-profit franchise) on several counts.


    Our case is iron-clad and we are well represented. We could use your help, however, and here?s how:



    If you have any instances of a Candidate who saw the posting and decided to not continue the 3 Simple Steps, the President?s Interview, or enrollment due to that posting; or if you have a Rep who was intimidated by the posting and decided to pursue other activities, our case will be strengthened by knowing those particulars. If you are one of the latter, a Rep who saw the posting and was influenced in a negative way, I would appreciate knowing that and won?t think any less of you at all. If you saved any e-mail messages from one of these scenarios, that would be wonderful. Please forward those to me at: TimD@AdvantageConferences.com.



    With that being said, Advantage Conferences is growing at a fantastic rate and the caliber of individuals coming on board is almost beyond my comprehension (though not really). The quality of Reps is exactly what we have prayed for, expected and envisioned; and now humbly accept as God?s favor and goodness.



    This confrontation with the local agency is our willingness and obligation to stand up to our giants and let them know they can?t arbitrarily libel a company based on non-truths. We will have future challenges as well, and we are resolutely equipped, with God?s merciful hand, to deal with each and every one. I truly thank you for your support and spirit of forward movement. This is truly an amazing company with amazing people. More importantly, God is absolutely in control, and we will prevail (as plaintiffs).



    We need your instances, if any, as requested in above paragraph 3 as quickly as you can send them. Thanks for attending to this issue promptly.

    Blessings,


    Tim Darnell

    President

    Subject: TGIM Call - You are Capable...

    Beloved Team,

    Tomorrow morning I am in the courtroom again, this obligation requiring me to miss the TGIM Team Call in the morning.

    I leave you with this message to replace my absence in the morning, entitled “You are Capable”.


    You are capable of effective and memorable leadership.
    You are capable of greatness, beyond your wildest imagination.
    You are capable of Slaying Your Giant, once and for all.
    You are capable of totally transforming your financial situation in multiplicative terms.

    You are capable of influencing others in ways that elevate and amplify the prospects for their future.
    You are capable of being a respected, recognized voice for truth.

    You are capable of leading others, many others, to salvation in Jesus Christ.
    You are capable of playing a very important role in the solution of many of the world’s needs
    You are capable of being God’s hands, feet, and voice in a world that often ignores God’s presence.


    My friend, the bottom line is: You are Capable.

    My apologies – I am disappointed in not being able to share our normal time in the AM. I am with you in spirit, and I ask your prayers for the expedient and definitive positive resolution of the battle against our adversaries. Make no mistake, when you work and breathe for God, the outcome is assured. Our victory is a foregone conclusion, and we enter the rest of the battle with enthusiasm and sustained, unwavering belief.

    Thank you for entering the battle with me. It’s the only place to be.

    Blessings,

    There is wonderful information on Quatloos.com. Our fine colleagues there had plenty to say about this frivolous suit and the scammers-in-chief of Advantage Conferences.

    Pages 122-128 are the most hilarious. Tim Darnell explains how he is a millionaire and outlines his brilliant tax strategies. His 2005 strategy was the most brilliant. He got himself a $97,000.00 tax lien! Now, that is funny!!!

    Re: Eric Standlee Standing Up for Christ or Using His Word to Defraud Fellow Christians?

    Monday, September 25, 2006

    Fwd: Update...


    ---------- Forwarded message ----------

    Several people have asked about the legal issues mentioned by me in an
    e-mail to the field on Sunday evening. I thank you for your interest.

    The Company experienced an inaccurate, incorrect posting on a website
    almost a year ago by an outside entity. The posting was not only
    inaccurate, but also not very helpful to our growth. After multiple
    requests for the party to take down the irresponsible statements, especially
    in light of the presentment of legal, documented proof of their error, we
    were left with no other choice than to seek enforcement of our requests via
    the courtroom.

    Advantage Conferences is the plaintiff and is not being sued. We expect
    full resolution in the next few months. Due to this being a legal issue,
    there is not much more I can say in a public venue like this broadcast.

    In business, there are always those who would like to see you not
    realize the fruits of your labor; in fact, those attacks are inevitable,
    especially to a boldly Christ-centered company. We have excellent legal
    representation and have been excited and committed to continually meeting
    any and all opposition head-on.

    Thank you for your prayers - the best antidote to attack is simply
    continuing to be successful by providing excellent products and service
    to more and more people. I do expect further attacks in the future, but
    I've always lived by the simple motto: "a man of integrity, when
    questioned, allows time to prove him right". And that it will.

    Blessings,

    Tim Darnell is rambling BS about his losing suit against the BBB of Dallas. That lie-filled e-mail Eric published was probably written after that lying sack of manure, Tim Darnell, had learned that Advantage Conferences had lost the suit. The actual Summary Judgment Motion hearing was on September 22, 2006. Check out the hearing dates on the docket and note the last entry I copied shows the order granting the win to the BBB and ordering Timmy's Advantage Conferences to pay all the BBB costs of court.

    From the Better Business Bureau's Motion for Summary Judgment:
    The BBB membership standards require....truth and honsty in advertising and selling practices....The (BBB) website raised concerns about AC's business model and the truthfulness of its advertising Specificallly, the BBB questioned AC's use of certain trademarks and copyrights found on its website, its earning representations and whether AC was primarily engaged in promoting a pyramid scheme.

    Re: Advantage Conferences Sued the Dallas Better Business Bureau and Lost in Summary Judgment / Tim Darnell / Jack Weinz

    It is so obvious why the BBB questioned Advantage Conferences earnings representations and triumphed in court in Summary Judgment:

    Tim Darnell / Jack Weinzierl / Advantage Conferences Earnings Representations

    Attachment 204

    The question I have is how this fraudster, Tim Darnell, was able to snow so many very well educated people at his church.
