    SVM Global Initiative - pyramid scheme disguised as charity

    Hot on the heels of the Achieve Community "charitable" pyramid scheme recently prosecuted by the SEC comes The SVM Global Initiative

    The SVM Global Initiative fraud was first bought to the publics' attention by Oz over on his BEHINDMLM blog

    Oz' conclusion as to the SVM Global business model ???



    The purported founder and CEO of SVM Global is one Sheila V. Tabarsi



    Ask Sheila V.com

    Ms Tabarsis' Sheila V and Associates website explains the concept behind The SVM Global Initiative:



    In response to SVM being exposed on BEHINDMLM.com Sheila V Tabarsi fired back at her critics in a Recorded StartMeeting call

    For those readers who managed to stay awake during Ms Tarbasis' somewhat disjointed and rambling soliloquy the "JAG attorney" she claims is advising her appears to be this gentleman:

    gotta say, at least the scammers help out proving they're running a scam by jumping to defend it before the ink is even dry over at Oz's site.

    Re: SVM Global Initiative - pyramid scheme disguised as charity

    You've got to hand it to Sheila V. Tabarsi.

    No lie is too big or too small,

    She'll say, do and promise anything to fleece gullible folks of their hard earned.

    Take this latest piece of nonsense from Ms Tabarsi and the SVM Global Initiative



    Anyone who believes a penny ante HYIP ponzi swindler such as
    Sheila V. Tabarsi is going to hand over a thousand, much less a million, dollars is in for an extremely rude awakening as to how low some people will sink to relieve them of their cash

    Re: SVM Global Initiative - pyramid scheme disguised as charity

    It seems Sheila V Tabarsi takes a little bit more notice of the many critics of her planned SVM Global Initiative ponzi scheme than she'd be likely to publicly admit.

    So much notice, in fact, she this week conducted an emergency conference call for her devotees:



    Alert viewers will notice that Ms Tabarsi has changed tack, ever so slightly in the conference call.

    Rather than spend the whole call lambasting her critics and denying the bloody obvious ponzi aspects of her plan, she kinda, sorta, in a roundabout way, nearly, just about, begrudgingly admits:


    Quote Originally Posted by Sheila V Tabarsi

    and that

    instead

    Which is typical ponzi operator double speak, seeing no "AG" gives approval or advice to businesses and neither does the FTC

    The rest of the call is pretty stock standard sort of rhetoric used by ponzi operators when they are caught out, including the usual:

    Quote Originally Posted by Sheila V Tabarsi

    Yeah, right, like that's an option.

    Sounds good though, to her spiritual followers and fellow psychic supporters.

    Otherwise, nothing much out of the (HYIP ponzi) ordinary to report


    She's been caught out and there's no way the much delayed SVM Global Initiative "launch" is going to be able to fly under the radar, so it will be interesting to see exactly how defiant Ms Tabarsi remains, if she does go ahead with her plans and, if so, what alterations she makes to remove the glaringly obvious ponzi component of her brainchild

    I joined this scam on the urging of a brainwashed moron disciple of hers who sold all her jewelry and swore up and down that this was a can't miss opportunity. I ONLY joined for the income opportunity and the alleged 3000 people that had already joined. Unfortunately I learned afterwards that this is a fraud MATRIX Ponzi and scam. I requested a refund and I would go away peacefully and she accused me of being an investigator and denied my refund request. She has provided NO product or service yet refuses to refund me. She is the biggest con artist I have ever come across. I have filed Criminal complaints with my District US Attorney and the US District Attorney in her area of NY. I also filed the appropriate paperwork with the NY State Attorney General. I filed a Criminal complaint review with the US Embassy in Costa Rica where she claims to have an offshore secret society hideout. I filed formal complaints with the FTC and FCC. This crook needs to be stopped and be accountable to all she has stolen from and CONTINUES to steal from. In her conference call of 4/20/2015 Ms. Tabarsi self admits that she has to begin reworking her plan because the people who have accused her of running a Ponzi scheme are partially correct.....No Ms. Tabarsi we are 100% correct and we are going to shut you down come hell or high water....THEIF !

    That's another classic HYIP ponzi operator use of weasel words.

    She says on her calls that anyone who has joined the SVM Global Initiative to "make money" and not for the right charitable reasons is "welcome to leave"

    What she neglects to mention, of course, is that she and SVM Global Initiative have a strict "no refunds" policy, so, it suits her down to the ground if people do leave - it's money straight into her pocket.

    Welcome, you may have some success getting a refund reporting this to your bank and/or credit card depending on how you funded your account.

    Re: SVM Global Initiative - pyramid scheme disguised as charity

    I will fight this crook tooth and nail to see not only myself refunded but from everyone else she has stolen from. She messed with the wrong person with me. You can't take someone's money and NOT provide anything except some grandiose fairy tale promise. She is GOING DOWN !

    Re: SVM Global Initiative - pyramid scheme disguised as charity

    It's quite amazing how she can deflect & redirect and disguise her words both spoken and on her website to hide her covert intentions. You have to be a complete idiot moron as most of her followers are or they are just plain ignorant and soft in the middle. She leaches on to the naivety of people with her charm, charismatic poise and cocky posture of being some kind of humanitarian hero who is hell bent on her shear stupidity when all she is, is a con artist and thief.

    She has to do the time first, she can leave anytime after it (with passport or not ).

    Nah, she is still in denial or pretending - "It is built off people making money off of other people making money."
    You see ? she did not say "making money off other people loosing money",
    it sounded like a sarcasm, that feds might see it is a bad thing that everybody makes money.

    Thank you for my daily chuckle, Whip.

    This Sheila A. Hibbits/Sheila A. Tabarsi may just be on the verge of unseating whoever occupies this year's "scraping the bottom of the barrel scammer throne".

    Here ya go, send Sheila V Tabarsi $110 and she'll send you $7764 a month for becoming part of an "ad company" with no explanation of where the money is going to come from.

    Throw in the fact she's targeting veterans and claiming her intention is to end "world poverty" with her ponzi / pyramid and one comes to the very definite conclusion Ms Tabarsi is a heartless con artist with no sense of shame.

    Don't go by the Elance Profile pix. That picture is OLD. Probably 10 years old. You can probably Google her Pinterest or Myspace album though.

    Seems Ken Goldstein didn't like the profile I did on him. Muahahahaha. He posted a nasty comment about he won't accept libel on both PP and my blog.

    HeHe,

    let us know when the summons to appear in court arrives, Kasey.

    We wouldn't want to miss out on Mr Goldstein and Ms Tabarsi explaining how the SVM Global Initiative isn't a ponzi or pyramid in front of a judge, now would we ??
