    How legit is EZ Wealth Solution? Kathleen Vanbeekom Promoter


    Member Login l Join Sokule™ l Sokule™ Lingo l Sokule on Mobile l Make Money
    Want Multi $1,000 Days by Posting Ads?
    Here's what you're missing each day you're not a member:
    Realistic multi $100 to multi $1,000 days just by posting ads!
    How are we earning this? When people join/upgrade, they are receiving digital products with unlimited lifetime Master Resale Rights. The videos on the EZWS site help close our sales 24 hours per day, and we get paid 100% commissions each time a sale is made, unlimited times per day.
    The commissions are $47, $97, $247, $497, $997 or combinations of those amounts. We earn 100% from our personal sales and 100% in passive earnings brought in by passups/rollups from qualifying sales made by our payliners.
    ==>>Many EZWS Resellers are receiving multiple commissions daily of $97, $344 for Packages 2&3, and many of us have had several multi $1,000 days, and lots of it can happen in passive income, even though this is NOT MLM, the passive income can be huge, at any moment, brought in by our team members. This is bigger, better, faster than MLM and pays DAILY, unlimited times per DAY.
    The products are spectacular!
    There are 100 products in Package 1 including a 650-article compilation in 20 different popular niches! Article marketing is huge business!
    The Bonus Pack contains 100 products including the 66-search-engine submitter, and also a 519-page very detailed product on how to earn explosive amounts of income with autoresponders and it has lots of sample messages! This one product is valued at $495 by itself!
    Package 2 contains 121 products including lots of article marketing tutorials, these are great in conjuction with that 650-article product in Package 1!
    Package 3 contains 150 products including 6 multi-article products for a total of 185 articles in many different niches, and lots of article-marketing tutorials, and private label reseller advice.
    Package 4 contains 110 products including 13 multi-article products in several popular niches, that's a total of around 1,000 articles in just 13 of the 110 products in Package 4 and more products about earning with resale rights, so your article marketing can on for a lifetime! You can also edit them to create new unique articles.
    Package 5 contains 122 products, many are each worth $149 or more, including more how-to on article marketing, AND a 114-page tutorial by a famous-name selfmade internet millionaire who became very wealthy within a few years by reselling other peoples' digital products, that's exactly what we're doing in EZWS!
    Most new members of EZWS are upgrading to at least Packages 2&3 immediately when joining. The top earners, including me, all started at least up to 3 packages or all 5.
    When you join, I'll also send you links to 1,000 free ad sites and lots of great ads to use for EZWS! I've been one of the top earners for 2 years and I'll give you my best advice.
    Sincerely, Kathleen VanBeekom

    Cash-in on the Sokule Revolution...


    Post on Sokule and Twitter INSTANTLY!


    As of Saturday, May 25, Sokule has given away or sold 46,026,868,641 Sokens
    Imagine this...
    You wake up, grab a coffee, mosey over to your computer, login to your Sokule account, post your messages instantly to Facebook, LinkedIn and dozens more high-traffic social media sites in a nano second.
    1-post, 1-click and you're done!
    Then take the rest of the day off.


    Sokule will work for you while you relax...

    You won't see him slaving away, but he's there, in the background, posting
    your messages on 80+ high-traffic sites for you, and building an email list
    for you on auto-pilot. You do nothing at all.



    "The owner of the company, Jane Mark, calls me, The Gentle Giant of Advertising, because I perform huge tasks every day, for every member. You see, I never sleep. I never goof off or play around, and I never complain. I love working for you."
    You'll love some of the Kule (cool) things Sokule can do for you...

    * Builds a list of followers for you.
    You don't do anything at all.

    * Lets you email your followers every 3 days.
    No other social media site allows you to do this.

    * Lets you post to 80+ Social Media Sites and Targeted blogs -
    With just 1-click.

    * Reach over 1.4 million people -
    With your posts at Sokule.

    * Pays you commissions on every upgraded member you sponsor.
    Pays you weekly. No waiting months to get paid.


    Gee, Phil and Jane certainly didn't contact me. I wonder if they actually read the ads posted on their site. Kathleen Vanbeekom is promoting an obvious pyramid scheme. Everyone that joins participates in the pay plan and there doesn't appear to be any retail sales for EZ Wealth Solutions. Ouch!

    I would bet there is a bunch more really swell stuff on their charming site. I am sure that the many fine members of RS would have a great time poking around. Remember when Bogdan Fiedur of Adlandpro challenged us?

    http://www.realscam.com/f11/bogdan-f...lscam-com-913/

    Bogdan Fiedur (owner of scam & ponzi promoting site - Adlandpro)Threatening RS and Critics Again!!!

    Realscam and Its Admins Have a Fan Club!!! We Do Conspire to Expose Scammers!

    Phil and Jane are welcome to read those threads and then we can discuss their little situation right here on this thread. Maybe they will conjure up some fake lawyers to threaten us with too!!!

    Perhaps "Phil and Jane" would like to point out exactly where any "defamation" occurs.

    Re: What is Sokule??

    Perhaps they could explain why Adlandpro is one of the seven places where they recommend people to advertise their products.

    The name Ewen Chia in their sales spiel, tells me all I need to know about this advertising program. How many times has Kathleen VanBeekom told us that this person's writings have been an inspiration to her?

    Quote Kathleen Vanbeekom

    "Did you know? The selfmade millionaire marketer, Ewen Chia, lists Adlandpro Classifieds as one of only seven recommended classified ad sites in his book, "How I Made My First Million On The Internet And How You Can, Too!" That's a very high recommendation, considering there are 10,000's to 100,000's of classified ad sites online. If a millionaire only lists 7 and Adlandpro is ONE of them, that's a reason to consistently post at Adlandpro!"

    Did you just happen to overlook the links from where this was copied??

    I think your legal advisor will see it differently but go ahead, it has been tried before as mentioned by SBM.

    Yes, I think she was praising Phil & Jane many years ago. Actually, I had forgotten about this thread...

    Why bother with an attorney ??

    Why not just send out a blast email to all your members asking them to refrain from associating Sokule with fraudulent online opportunities and keep it off the usual suspect HYIP ponzi promoting forums ??

    After all, it wasn't REALSCAM.com that created the association/s reproduced here or started the Sokule threads on the Talkgold, MoneyMakerGroup, DreamTeamMoney and AdLandPro HYIP ponzi promotion forums.

    We constantly tell our members to do their due diligence with any advertising they receive from members or our own. But there are thousands of posts done at Sokule every day and there is no way you can monitor all of them unless members alert you to them. Facebook has the same issue. They deal with them when they find them or they are alerted to them.

    That doesn't make Sokule or Facebook a scam site. No large membership site can control everything their members or affiliates do and it's foolish to think they can.,

    What sort of nonsense is that ??

    If Sokule management had the slightest degree of integrity or concern for its' image, it's next blast email to members would tell them to stop advertising on HYIP ponzi forums.

    Hello everyone!! It has been a long time since I have even reported in. So sorry about that but several things got in my way, including health issues (a new one for me) and I am beginning to feel better.

    This was in some of my "notifications" and I had forgotten about it, apparently so has everyone else. I see the site is still up & working so I guess we made a few waves but not enough.
