    Re: Blessing Gold Club

    This is all too typical of the kind of threads you see in BGC and other cash-gifting SCAM groups; disillusioned, unhappy people trying to express how disappointed they are (without getting banned or having their post deleted for being "negative") that the big-money promises are not panning out mixed in with the promoters whose best ideas seem to be "send in some more money (so I can get paid)".

    Yes Rosalia VS, start telling everyone you know about it and let others know about it on FB. You can post info on your wall and in Fb groups. You can also make videos and share them. If we all share, it will speed things up for everyone.

    I am a visual person and this is how I look at the Blessings Clubs/Spreadsheets. They are like a conveyer belt. As long as items keep being placed on the belt, the belt keeps moving. When items stop movement stops.

    For a Hoax a lot of people have received from it. People say a lot of things, that doesn't make them true. If people continue to promote the club will continue to grow. There are plans to speed things up after the beginning of the year. Stay patient it is coming.

    Hello Debra, There is no reason for any negativity, the founders and admin are working very hard to help BGC move forward for a very bright future. I wish people could see how much time we are really putting into BGC, but we can not do it by ourselves. BGC is a team and we all should work together as a team, talking negative does not do anything positive for our team. We must all work together as a team and share this club with others. The more we share the faster everything will move. Please also remember this is about helping others and is in no way meant to be a source of income.

    But never fear, faithful gifters ... the "admins" who sit at the top of this pyramid have a bullet-proof plan to open up a snowstorm of cash in a "couple of months" (stated January 11) that will satiate all of these dear soul's overwhelming urge to give to others:

    They believe that the 369 "units" they have accumulated ($477,855) in Better Living Global Marketing (as of January 11) "are producing $85-90,000 a MONTH", and "we have submitted YESTERDAY (January 10)our first withdrawl from BL(Better Living Global Marketing) for BGC".

    Would anyone like to give them the bad news?
    Ya'll stay tuned for that next conference call that's now weeks overdue ... ya hear?

    In response to another thread, I made this comment and was asked to put it in a separate thread.

    we are adding about 5-10 a day in here, but only one or two paying memberships a week. Talk to the people that you all are adding, make sure they know they have to be a paying member for this to grow. Encourage them as they get their blessings to at least send one back for whichever one they got silver or gold. That is what I have done and plan on doing. And as it gets higher, then I'll be sending more than one in.
    Like · · 22 hours ago near Norfolk, VA


    This is just a "math refresher" to make sure that we haven't forgotten what we were taught in middle school:

    There are almost 1,400 "paid" members in Blessing Gold Club who have sent in either $45 or $110.
    Regardless of all this warm mush about "helping others", these people expect to eventually receive more than they put in.
    At a current rate of "one or two paying memberships a week" (52 x 1.5 = 78 per year), how long would it take for those 1,400 to break even?
    If we pretend the incoming money is evenly distributed among those 1,400, it would be 1,400 divided by 78, or 17 years.

    Oops.
    Wait a sec.
    I forgot.
    Money is not evenly distributed.
    This is a pyramid set up to benefit the 8-10 crooks who got in at the top.

    Uh-oh

    Re: Blessing Gold Club

    Warning -> Warning -> WARNING!

    Will Hunt, Sheila Zimmer, Rich Granatelli, Michelle Orkline, Arla Mendenhal and their associated crooks are attempting to convince the sheep in Blessing Gold Club to send money to Better Living Global Marketing through themselves "before they close to new members" and "discontinue the MLM phase" and become a company where "we get paid for watching advertisements". To "expedite" this mad six-month rush to suck as much money as possible into BLGM, they are forming a coop to "accommodate" all of their members who cannot afford the $1,300 cost of the BLGM "units" by offering them for the low, low price of only $500.

    Of course, they don't want to leave out all of their fine friends who are already in BLGM, so they are welcome to send in their money also to take advantage of the "fire-sale" price of $500/unit. Oh, don't forget that you can't use funds that you already have in your various BLGM "e-wallets" ... this is a cash-only sale "because of the price point" ...

    For the Blessing Gold Club members who joined in July who have not received a dime who are waiting for the January 10th withdrawl request from Better Living Global Marketing to change their fortunes and get the totally stalled BGC queue moving again ... from the February 17th conference call (@ 24:25):

    "Just to give a quick update on the withdrawls: we are waiting on those. They are pending. We were advised about a week ago ... correct me if I'm wrong, Rich ... they did say at the corporate in Hong Kong that withdrawls ... they're up to mid-way through November's requests and once they hit December it will move a lot faster because that was when they started to do a freeze on the number of withdrawls. And so hopefully, very soon, I'm very hopeful that within the next couple of weeks we'll be able to get those funds, we'll have access and then we'll start pushing those funds in to the Blessing Gold Club program and get those moneys out"

    Now I ask participants in the Blessing Gold Club and Better Living Global Marketing a simple question:
    Have you seen any notification from BLGM that they are having a $500 "sale" on units that cost $1,295 + $15 yesterday?

    Nope.

    Does it then begin to look like the generous "leaders" of the Blessing Gold Club have found a way to convert their mass accumulation of worthless units into real cash at $500 per unit?

    Tell me.

    "Just the facts" from tonight's long-awaited BGC conference call:

    1. Rich Granatelli and Will Hunt "are no longer associated with the Blessing Gold Club" (by their own request, reportedly). Michelle Orkline and Sheila Zimmer now state that management responsibilities lie solely with them.

    3. The withdrawl from Better Living Global Marketing that the BGC Admins claimed that they were going to inject (in a never-specified amount) into the stalled gifting queue?

    "We were told that it would take five months, but we were told that we were welcome to sell the 'HK dollars' in our cash wallets (monopoly money) to anyone who wanted to buy them and use that cash"

    4. Michelle and Sheila think it would be a good idea for everyone to "forget there ever was a 'side opportunity' and revert back to the original spirit of the club and just get those incoming donations from BGC members moving right along again.

    Re: Blessing Gold Club

    The only "exciting news"" out of the Blessing Gold Club lately is that Rich Granatelli showed up to leave a nasty post stating that the reason he and Will Hunt had left the club was because funds that had been sent in by members had been "mismanaged".

    Needless to say, that post did not survive very long before deletion. If anyone preserved a copy of it, I'm sure there would be a lot of people interested in seeing it.

    Here's what the aftermath is looking like:

    Cherry Walker I don't come here often and must have missed the drama! You know, at first I was shocked and then angry but now I'm just sad.
    The admin that left are bad mouthing the people who are still here? The ones that are trying to keep it together and encourage all of us to stay positive and hang in there and be supportive!!! Really??? That speaks VERY poorly of the ones doing the bad mouthing IMHO!
    Those folks got some pretty juicy "blessings" before they cut and run...why didn't they invest some of that $$$ back into this club?
    They used this group to build up a side business that in my opinion has totally failed in doing what it was supposed to do. AND YOU TRUST THEM???
    I have seen a lot of pictures of people's cash blessings on this page...not so many in the last few months but for a while there were tons of pictures. I have seen people post about other blessings, jobs, family miracles, health issues, prayer requests...people coming together in a way that is not ordinarily done in today's chaotic world.
    The $$$$ blessings may still trickle in...and out...but maybe it's because we have lost sight of what this group was all about.
    Sharing, caring, praying, being supportive...loving each other...
    I may not make the call, I spend most evenings at the nursing home with my little daddy...but I will be praying for all of the admins, the ladies and gents who are still here...trying to encourage us to stay positive..
    Those other folks...the ones doing the badmouthing??? I will pray for them too...for them to get back the integrity they threw away...when they turned tail and ran.

    Wendell Brewster Cherry Walker. First off there is no shame on me. Jesus took it all on the cross. Second of all if you would be so kind to go back and read my post I am merely looking for answers and the full truth. I made that post for the protection of everyone. BGC admin and members. To not post what Rich and Will are posting publicly on FB would be like not telling your friend what someone else has said about them. Which ever party is guilty needs to be exposed for everyone's protection. The truth will come out. I agree with you Cherry. Rich and Will used the BGC to their advantage to prosper in Better Living. They built the BGC, gained trust, then made the move to Better Living and took a lot of BGC members with them. (I was not one of them). As we all know that is when the Momentum stopped in BGC and shifted to BL. This much we know is true. Now we need to know how we can turn this all around and make BGC what it was originally meant to be. Blessings to you Cherry. Hopefully we can be friends and move on.

    Cherry Walker Wendell, I am not privy to Rich and Will's posts since I am not FB friends with either of them. I chose not to participate in the side biz for several reasons. I didn't bad mouth anyone that decided to get involved because as adults, they are responsible for their own actions.

    Cherry Walker My comment to you was because I felt you were spreading rumors without facts and disparaging the people who have continued to be supportive here.
    No one can force another person to participate here. If they don't feel the call to bless someone then you can't guilt trip them to do so.
    This is one of those "sharing" groups that is based upon continued participation. Maybe it wasn't set up properly in the beginning but I have faith that the admins and founders that didn't take the money and run, fully intend to bless as many people as possible.
    Those that are doing the bad mouthing are just trying to cover their own lack of integrity...who knows...maybe they're trying to set up another group of gullible people to go chase rainbows with them. Maybe they think the best way to make themselves look good is by making others look bad???
    I will wait to hear what the remaining founders/admins have to say. They have tried to keep everyone here positive and I have never seen "them" badmouth the ones who left.
    Integrity....it is hard to regain, once lost.

    DeLynn Overcast-Thomann If I might add something to this.....yes the momentum of this group slowed down right around the time it was announced that the founders had found a side opp that would help bless many members. This is just my opinion but...that is when the blessings slowed to a trickle. Only a small group of folks continued to send blessings in and everyone else just waited and waited for the side opp to bless us all.....The founders did a good thing by trying to find something that would help the longevity of the club but it also encouraged passiveness.....just my thoughts. Have a wonderful day all and hope to have hear you on the call

    Bobbie Koons I believe in the Admins that are in charge of BGC now, stay strong Ladies, they have helped many people, me included. I think if you wanted to take the time and do the math on the Spread Sheets there would be the proof that all the money was sent out to the members, I think that as it started to slow down, many were using the blessings they were getting to bring others in, so when we stopped getting blessing we could not continue to bless others out of pocket., causing it to get slower still. I read the post on the other page, what a shame people have to be so mean.

    funny that anyone thinks they are going to get real answers. lol Like the admins are going to admit they stole money. And I'm sure someone will record the call. Especially since they evidently don't want it recorded.

    Blessing Gold Club Member's Call
    Tuesday May 6, 2014
    (805) 399-1000
    Access Code: 507970#

    TRANSCRIPT:

    Sheila Zimmer: Can you hear me, Michelle?

    Michelle Orkline: Yes I can.

    Sheila Zimmer:
    Ok. I guess we're good to go then

    Michelle Orkline: Yes we are

    Sheila Zimmer: Thanks everyone for coming on the call tonight, this is not going to be a very long call. We are not going to open it up for a Q & A session, either. We have some pretty decent news for everyone. We are going to go over a few things. We know everybody has been anxiously waiting to see you know what's going to be going on with the future of BGC. We will go over that. We also know that everyone, or not everyone but a lot of people saw the post that was done a couple of days ago by Rich Granatelli. We will talk about that a little bit. We're not going to elaborate on that a lot. So that's basically what the call is going to be about tonight. I'm going to let Michelle start it off. When the call, when we do end the call if anbody has any questions you can PM me or Michelle - send us an instant message - if you want to talk further about anything, if you have any questions that you want to ask either one of us you can, like I said, send us an instant message. I'll give you my phone number. I'll be happy to talk to you and so will Michelle. So Michelle, take it away!

    Michelle Orkline: Thanks a lot, Sheila, and again I appreciate everyone taking the time to get on the call. It has been a little bit of a charging weekend dealing with the post from Rich Granatelli. And as Sheila said we are not going to talk about it a lot. We are not going to publicly respond to it. We are a private membership organization and we need to stay in the private domain, so we are not going to publicly respond. We did want to talk to the team and those that were able to get on the call tonight to address just a couple of things. BGC is still here. We have not closed. We have not we are not going away. Sheila and I have indicated on previous calls that we are very committed to BGC - to moving forward with it. We will have some restructuring of BGC going forward. We have, and we are at this point, waiting for funds to come from Better Living that we can inject in to BBC to get all of our members their first distribution of $100 and then look to restructure the program that makes it a more realistic type program and we don't know what that looks like yet.

    The one thing I do want to address is there was a statement made regarding mishandling of funds. That is not a true statement. The blessings or memberships came in - every day - and they went out, every day. There were a number of expenses that BGC did incur which we have accounted for. We are in the process of doing a reconcilliation and will bring in some professionals to help us do that reconcilliation. But again I did want to say that there has not been any mishandling of funds that was alluded to.

    We have been in contact with our legal counsel regarding BGC going forward and how we want to handle it and restructure it. There has been - it's been strongly suggested to us that we change our name actually, because BGC was in such a public forum and being a private association, we need to get that back in under control; we are going to look to restructure and give the association a new name. We are working on it. We will have a new FaceBook group. That FaceBook group will be for members only and it will be a secret group on Facebook. We are allowed to do that, because that does stay in the private domain.
    Sheila, I am going to turn it over to you on that note and let you give some of your thoughts and some of your plans for us going forward. Sheila?

    Sheila Zimmer: Can you hear me now?

    Michelle Orkline: Yes I can.

    Sheila Zimmer: Ok, sorry. I was muted out. As Michelle said that, you know, we do have changes that are going to be coming and these are going to be good changes for BGC. You know I think that since we have resolved our partnership with Will and Rich and Michelle and I are looking at fresh ideas, new ideas - things that are going to be sustainable for our club and you know and also with the new name. We had a lot of people in the group - that - I think there was like 30,000, over 30,000 people in that group, but we don't have 30,000 paid members, so you probably can tell by the group now that our admins have been working on removing the non-paid members from the group. But, that is very, very time-consuming and so also I don't think we would be able to change the FaceBook address because there would still be too many people in the group. That is why we are taking on another FaceBook page. All of our members will be added to that FaceBook page - all of our paid members. We won't have anyone that is not a member of the club.

    I do want to touch a little bit on the comments that was made from the post from Rich Granatelli the other day: well the one thing that Michelle said about the mishandling of funds or you know just like she said, that is not a true statement. It's never been mishandled. We did a lot of promos, we did a lot of contests and we had expenses that we have paid out. We do have record of that. Our record is not for our members, though. Those are our records and those are for our tax purposes. Those records were not meant to be shared with members and they never will be. Like I said those are just for our records for our tax purposes because we do have to file taxes for this club.

    We did get good news from better living this week and hopefully they are going to be start to payout funds to the members of Better Living, so we are very excited about that and I think it is just going to be ... a really good thing ... it's been slow. You know, we were working a lot on the side opp - the side business that we went in to - and BGC did slow down. I don't think it slowed down because we were in a side opp. I think it slowed down because people were expecting big money to start coming in the first of the year and so people were just waiting to see if we were going to start bringing people in by the thousands like Rich had said before. We are not going to do that. I can tell you up front. We are going to help families, but it will be families that we choose to help. There's not going to be hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people brought in, you know.

    We don't want a club that is being sustained just by the club's money. It has to be a participation thing from everybody - all members who are a member of this club. So I just wanted to get that out there so that people aren't thinking you know that that's the way it's going to go, because it's not. Like I said, I think that everything is going to be a whole lot better. It's going to be new, it's going to be fresh and we're really looking forward to having a long future with all of our members. And, that's really all I had to say tonight Michelle.

    Michelle Orkline: Um, thanks Cheryl [sic]

    Sheila Zimmer: Our admins are on the line. If any one of our admins would like to unmute theirself and you know say a few words that's absolutely fine.

    Michelle Orkline: I think you caught them off guard.

    Sheila Zimmer: I probably did. That's ok.

    Michelle Orkline: Yeah, that's ok. And again, we did not want this to be a long call. We are not going to make a public response to the posting. As Sheila said, if you do have any additional questions or concerns please reach out directly to Sheila and myself. We will answer your questions. It looks like Scott unmuted himself.

    Sheila Zimmer: There we go.

    Scott Richards: Hello, how is everyone doing?

    Sheila Zimmer: Hey Scott, doing great.

    Scott Richards: Well, I would just like to say, you know, yes we have a lot of doubt, we have a lot of issues going on but we have always moved forward at the end of the day and we are going to continue to move forward and we're going to continue to follow legal procedures no matter what. At the end of the day, if someone is bashing us? The best thing we can do is to not say anything and just stand proud and keep moving forward in order to bless these people. At the end of the day that's what it's really about is helping out others. So, that is pretty much all I got to say. I'm going to keep moving forward. I'm not going to let anybody affect me at this point and at the end of the day I know that Sheila and Michelle have our best interests in mind. That is the absolute reason that they are still here and others are not.

    Sheila Zimmer: Thank you so much Scott and you're absolutely right; it's all about helping everybody that you can help and that is what we plan to do. We've always done that and we always will.

    Scott: Absolutely

    Michelle Orkline: Okay, thanks Scott and I believe Sheila, on that note - we appreciate everybody taking the time to get on the call and again, as we said, if you have any specific questions please reach out to myself Michelle Orkline or Sheila Zimmer and we will be glad to help you. And everybody, have a great night.

    Sheila Zimmer: Thank you so much. Goodnight.

    Of course not.....that would be a disaster.

    Of course it wasn't. They went exactly where certain people wanted them to go.

    we're going to continue to follow legal procedures no matter what.
    hmmm. really?

    uh, why wouldn't you "continue to follow legal procedure" and get them into court? Instead you are going to give them money? Where do I sign up?

    It would be interesting to find out how long it takes for newbies to the world of cash gifting to realize that the main reason cash gifting pyramid schemes are illegal is because they don't work for more than 90% of participants.

    It sounds to me like they have finally run in to someone they are willing to listen to who is telling them that Blessing Gold Club is an illegal cash-gifting pyramid scheme.

    Gee, I wonder which legal genius came up with that idea.

    A rose by any other name is still a rose, and an illegal cash gifting / pyramid scheme by any other name is still an illegal cash gifting / pyramid scheme.

    What's worse, an illegal cash gifting / pyramid scheme which has been on life support is doomed, no matter what they decide to call it.

    As for and an illegal cash gifting / pyramid scheme which has already lost those at the top of the pyramid, FAWGEDDABOUDIT

    Re: Blessing Gold Club

    Kind of a dismal mood over at the Blessing Gold Club Facebook page these days. Sheila Zimmer and Michelle Orkline decided a while back that having the group be "secret" rather than "private" was going to help ... something. Having all of the WELCOME TO THE BLESSING GOLD CLUB!! messages disappear from the timeline certainly makes for a more readable list of "just the facts" as long as you can ignore Dottie Ruth Wiegmann's daily exercise in positive affirmation:

    Good Morning BGC Family

    Stay away from what might

    Stay Positive and Keep Smiling.


    I think the faithful are finally willing to admit that there are a couple of thousand people that will never see a dime from this gifting pyramid that effectively stalled about six weeks after it was started a year ago.

    Great question, Diane! Send us a current spreadsheet and I'll be happy to total it all up for you. I think if there is any justice to be had from that reality, it is that the people that dreamed up and promoted this illegal gifting pyramid ended up sending a LOT of what they made off of the fine folks in BGC to Better Living Global Marketing (because they wanted to get REALLY rich). THAT money is gone forever.

    Oh stop it. It quit because people quit sending in. You can't send out when nothing comes in. And the same thing will happen again if everyone gets greedy and keeps it all. We must bless with what we receive

    That's exactly right David. So when the leaders of BGC started taking funds and sinking it into a side business

    The founders used their money to bless many in and designated certain memberships to do side opps and bless more in. The whole spirit was of blessing others. With the third round there is more than enough to share and it keeps going. It stopped when every one got greedy and didn't return some of the blessings they received. And that's on any opp. You have to share with friends or bless them in yourself

    The point is as everyone should realize that just sending in money to give to somebody else doesn't do anything to sustain growth. In order to achieve growth several members at the top decided to diversify the money into lucrative programs or so they thought. When these programs did not pay out as expected the money simply dried up. Why no one at the top will admit this is beyond me. Unless money is actively coming in and invested somehow there is no way this can work. It's the equivalent of giving your neighborhood dollar and expecting it to turn into two.

    I have not given up hope. The last time a gold blessing was sent out is 5/29 and the last time a silver blessing was sent out was 4/21. I am hoping to see my sister and my friends I shared this with get blessed before winter time. Does anyone know if that is possible?

    Sue Moose, to receive your first blessing, 3 people must join (which provides the funds to bless you). That's 3 people per your position number you were given when you joined. If you were position number 500, then 1500 people must join in order for funds to be available to send you your first blessing. That's why I said "Your position # times 3 = how many people have to join before you get the first blessing." If you are looking for your second blessing, then 9 (nine) people have to join..... so the calculation is 9 multiplied times your position number. Example: If you are position number 500, multiply that times 9 = 4500. So, when the 4500th person joins, then you will get your second blessing. Does that make sense now, Sue?

    The truth of the matter is, things like BGC are unsustainable over time because money that's not being invested to grow cannot replicate without a constant influx of cash - at one point the growth slows as the size is too large for any new member to recoup the money. Being called a blessing in the name of The Lord is simply misleading as inevitably, people lose. It's all done in the name of greed and hopes that the initial "blessing" would be returned over and over, growing exponentially each time. The folks at the top don't have anyone's money...it's been doled out and spend long ago. Time to wise up, move on and let the crooks who stole from people needing help to answer to the being they're conveniently trying to represent.

    You may think the admins got all the monies , UNTRUE about the ones that are still here, as #8 on the gold list I did reach level 5 BUT I also sent $110 in 18 TIMES for friends and family members (only a few got to round 1) also sent in 22 silvers for my downline members in the SIDE opp that we were led into by the FORMER founders the ones who Aren't here anymore. They walked away with their promises broken and they alone cashed in BIG from the side opp that we are are STILL waiting to pay us for the money we Earned after a YEARS hard work, BGC has w/d s in place , when the funds are received they will be disbursed PERIOD . The concept>" THE VISION "of one man was flawed from the beginning it cannot possibly sustain itself . All generated positions have been eliminated from the list, we are going to concentrate on getting Everyone round 1 at the very least .

    Cash Gifting is a business which is banned in most states so i applaud the name change and other changes to separate the club from those entities. My issue is probably the initial contacts that many received from the club in the beginning which was multiple pics of money that people had received and even telling many of us that it took about 10-14 days to get your initial $100 back. There was even a diagram that showed how much you would make in each round. I have a Internet marketing coach and he told me that the more i promoted this gifting program the worse my credibility would be when this happen so i take full blame for getting involved and will not blame this cash gifting club.

    When w e first started it was only 10-14 days each round. Then as will and the other guy started talking how BGC was expecting money from side opp people quit sending in. Also it wasn't explained to family and friends that they should give back after the first round. People quit replicating and some of us ran out of $$ to send in.

    The side opp regrouped, got new investors and hasn't paid out since nov or dec. when they do BGC will have some.
    But still that wasn't the point and still isn't. We will still fail if members don't return some of what they are getting.
    I'm not a great recruiter but I have many friends I was going to talk to and pay first round for and tell them they had to reciprocate with their first round.
    I think that was a lot of the problem. People adding people without talking to them and wanting them to be surprised so they had no clue what it was all about

    So my question of the day for the faithful sheeple in Blessing Gold Club is:

    Wendy Lewis is #8 on the member list. Above, she states (my italics/bold/underlined ) that she "gifted" 18 people the $110 for a "gold" membership and 22 people for the $45 "silver" membership ... that comes to $2,970. Don't you just wonder how much money flowed from the 3,401 BGC member's pockets into her's before she got to feeling that generous? The current reality is that two-thirds of the people that got sucked in to this illegal cash-gifting pyramid have not received a single cent. Last payment? Member number 1,167!

    Someone with some time on their hands needs to sit down with a current spread sheet and total up all of the payments that went out to Michelle Orkline, Sheila Zimmer, Will Hunt, Rich Granatelli and the rest of the crooks at the top of this pyramid scheme.

    It's a classic blueprint for how the gullible many get ripped off by the sociopathic few.

    Look! They lied! They are using the bgc withdraw funds for themselves! The side opp funds were ONLY to be used to fund BGC members their money back. They are in full control of what's going on, they are placing the blame on others when they're the ones using the funds to help themselves only. Even if they try to say it was to "dispurse" to help members, it is still a lie to bgc members. The withdraws should be to help pay back BGC members only. That account was only for bgc, not to line their own pockets with the funds... There is a clear reason why the other founders and admin left bgc, it was because of shady stuff like this going on..

    Hate to tell you but nothing BUT shady stuff can go on as that is why it exists to begin with. The ones that left are no angels. They knew exactly what the deal was and it's why they left........hoping they wouldn't get caught. Passing the same money back and forth isn't going to 'help' anyone. People HAVE to lose.
