    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    And the BS just keeps on coming:

    Greetings WorldWide SolutionZ Members,

    We would like to share a little more information with you regarding the status of WorldWide SolutionZ and the compliance process that is currently underway.

    It is important to understand that this process is two-fold, and addresses two very important separate but related areas.

    Operational Procedures Compliance
    As you may recall from recent conference sessions, I mentioned that I have been meeting with financial institutions, legal, as well as an advocate, to help us move
    WorldWide SolutionZ to the next level. This is to secure our ability to continue to transfer funds across borders for making payments to our WWSz Life Jacket Angel Supporters.

    Through the course of these discussions and consultations, it came to light that due to operational procedure requirements we were not previously aware of, there is now some internal restructuring that needs to take place in order to become fully compliant. This is on a paperwork and accounting level and is unrelated to our business model or how WWSz supports micro-franchising and the food drives even though the whole business is affected and being re structured to fit all compliance. To prevent further complications and to facilitate full review and evaluation for determining the extent of the changes required to fully integrate these requirements, we have temporarily redirected operations and removed access to the WorldWide SolutionZ website and members' back office area. Our decisions to take these actions at this time are voluntary on our part and based on good business sense under the advisement of our advocate, who is going above and beyond in his efforts to see us
    through these present challenges. Contrary to the rumor mills and sensationalists racing to forecast doom and gloom, WWSz is NOT being investigated nor has it been closed down by any government or other entity. As the review progresses and remedies are implemented we will keep updates coming.

    KYC for Reserve Bank Clearance
    Everyone is most likely aware by now that we have been pursuing certification for Reserve Bank clearance that will allow WorldWideSolutionZ to transfer increased levels of funding to locations and entities outside of South Africa, the whole process also affects internal transactions. To proceed with this, we are required to conduct KYC (Know Your Customer / Client) documentation collection. Those of you who have registered E-Global accounts for the WWSz payment gateway are already familiar with this process, since E-Global is also required to collect KYC documentation. We also have to comply with across border payment limitations and regulations that we are now being made aware of and need everybody to please send in the information and requirements requested to help asap.

    In addition to the KYC, we are also obligated to collect documentation to satisfy Anti-Money Laundering (AML) laws. Having this documentation in place safeguards both WorldWide SolutionZ and our members from potential losses stemming from illegal use of our income generating platforms and payment gateway.

    Please see the update email of January 14, 2015 for the complete list of KYC and AML documentation required, along with instructions for document submission.

    From this vantage point and with the luxury of hindsight, we can say it would have been lovely to set things up with KYC and AML documentation submission and approval in place from the very beginning. Perhaps we could be experiencing a much smoother transition right now if that had all already been handled during membership registration. But, since we are only informed now of these requirements, we have only the option to catch up as quickly as possible so that we can move on to the next phase.

    We encourage all members who have not yet sent in the required documentation to please do so as soon as possible in order to be qualified to proceed with withdrawals and payments when everything is sorted and we are ready to bring up the systems again. Please take note we do not have a time frame and we are dealing with hundreds of mails daily, please send only what is asked and we will work through the process as fast as we can with the help of legal. We can not estimate a time frame nor can we predict a final outcome, but we will keep everybody updated as we progress.

    Thank You

    It is impossible to express how much it means to us to have so many people reaching out in kindness and showing continued support during this process. I am especially thankful to my sons for propping me up when things seem a bit overwhelming, to our advocate and others helping with the process for serving on behalf of our business and our global mission, and to the volunteers who have stepped up to show leadership, fortitude and respect in caring for others who may be experiencing fear and confusion.

    Thank you with all my heart. We will continue to send updates as we progress.

    Love, Light, and Gratitude,
    Marelize


    But,. but,. but this cannot be. You told everyone you were legally compliant with all regulatory agencies when you launched WWS on the web back in Feb 2013. You told everyone that you had regulators looking over your shoulder at every thing you did. I guess everyone who deals with the Reserve Bank hires a criminal lawyer to handle their affairs. Glad to know that you're not being investigated by the authorities. I hate to think what kind of lawyer you would have to hire for them if it requires a criminal lawyer to handle the Reserve Bank. Keep tap dancing Marelize.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    If the lawyer needs data from the VICTIMS (i.e. marelize doesn't have them) this is extremely dangerous.

    This suggests that WWS doesn't even have accurate computer records.

    I suspect that Marelize had been hit with a "request for documents", which isn't an investigation per se, at least not a formal one. But it can easily turn into one.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    All Marelize had was what she required for someone to join WWSz: an Email address, a payment processor account, username and the person breathing, not the documents she really needed for the agencies requirements to conduct business in SA and worldwide. She just thought all she had to do was hang out a shingle with a website, ask people to join, promise to pay 5% per week, profess to be legal, and that was all she had to do to operate. Her claims of being a real and legitimate company from launch was total BS, but no-one cared as long as she could pay the 5% a week.

    I am not buying she is not under investigation. I do agree that this information would be required from the Reserve Bank for them to approve her requests for making payments. This is just the beginning of her woes and for the members. She has members who quit their jobs to make WWSz their full-time income. Others were needing it to pay their bills thinking they could just spend their money on other things without worry about not having the money from WWSz to pay their bills. My guess is that at least 75% of her members are having serious financial difficulties because they needed the money from WWSz to keep afloat. Just too many who said they had put their only savings into WWSz for it to grow. Sadly the majority of the members of WWSz were desperate for additional revenue and thought WWSz was the answer to their prayers.

    Tell the truth, Marelize, Worldwide Solutionz stopped "doing business" way before you made the announcement.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    Carlo Viljoen mad a post at behindMLM and had this to say, and I quote:

    "Greetings Everybody.

    Carlo Viljoen Here.

    Please note that WWS has engaged me for two simple reasons.

    Firstly because Marlize the owner/director knows me very well as I assisted her with her divorce a few years ago.

    Secondly, the problem is that due to endless red tape and obstacles in obtaining especially trading licences for the people that she has empowered with your gracious help these people are being obstructed from doing their business.

    Then there is also other banking compliance issues regarding WWS that needs to be addressed.

    I am well know to litigate against the Government and in order to address these issues she needs a litigator that can address the government and local authorities in a substantial manner and thatís where I come in.

    THERE ARE NO CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS UNDERWAY.

    I assure you that Marelize has only the best intentions herein.

    WWS is NOT being investigated nor has it been closed down by any government or other entity, WWS has stopped trading voluntarily and TEMPORAILY in order to prevent any loses to the clients.

    As soon as WWS have managed to overcome all the extensive requirements imposed on it, it will probably continue to trade, it would be reckless and negligent to continue trading until these issues have been addressed.

    It was decided to stop trading in order to safeguard the clients, until such time when the issue has been addressed, we cannot commit to a time frame on how long it will take at this time , and thus the decision to stop trading was made.

    WWS is still committed to its ultimate goal which to empower the poor and to act in your best interest, thus we point out to you that we are dealing with a huge volume of clients herein and our instruction is to deal with each one individually that our correspondence with you will not be immediate.

    Kindly also note that by spreading false and malicious rumors that is not based on facts about WWS you are causing it serious damage and you are exposing yourself to possible Civil action.

    Carlo Viljoen"


    Don't you just love the "warning" of a "potential" civil lawsuit if we don't stop saying all those nasty things about WWSz and Marelize. In other words telling the truth about them.

    He also opens another can of worms when he said that WWSz had stopped all "TRADING." But Marelize said that WWSz was not an investment. Oops! Of course the life jacket program was a pure investment and is what made WWSz a Ponzi.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    criminal lawyer handling a divorce = couldn't have gone too well for her
    criminal lawyer getting involved with 'red tape' issue = see above
    criminal lawyer defending criminals against the 'government' = big deal. Isn't that what the criminal paid you to do (like the runner of this scam will be doing)?

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    I'd love to have a dollar for every time some blowhard has used the words "slander" "libel" and "defamation" while trying to silence those who speak out against the criminal fraudsters behind HYIP ponzis.

    People like Carlo Viljoen and Marelize van Niekerk-Venter in a court ????

    You gotta be kidding me.

    Can you imagine the hilarity if and when either of them tried to use the same sort of B/S they get away with on the usual suspect HYIP ponzi forums in front of a judge with the (prewarned)media watching

    Ain't gonna happen.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    Posted over on MMG http://www.moneymakergroup.com/index...t&p=1109115693

    Latest update from Marelize about their COMPLINACE (I think she means compliance) issue

    They say they are trying to make their Ponzi scheme compliant. Good luck with that Marelize.

    MY Bold Red



    .
    WWSz URGENT UPDATE - IMPORTANT COMPLINACE PROCESS HELP NEEDED


    We realize there is confusion and misunderstanding about what is being asked of each of our members.

    Carlo, our legal advocate, is working with us to adapt our communications in an attempt to provide clarification. We will continue to send out updates to keep all members informed.

    You will have noticed that the website is currently not accessible. You will have also seen the announcement giving a brief explanation of why the website is not accessible. Some have indicated that they are confused by the use of the word, “trading” in that context. Especially in the online community, people generally think of currency trading. Of course everyone knows that WWSz is not involved in currency trading. We are using the term in the broader sense to simply refer to conducting business. We are currently not conducting business while we work through this compliance phase. It is as simple as that.

    This is a voluntary action on our part so that we can most efficiently implement changes to become compliant with things we were not aware of and only found out about in recent weeks after strugling to do business as usual. It is our intent to keep this interruption as brief as possible but we need all the help of all our members.

    Life Jacket members who have kept themselves updated regarding future plans for the Life Jacket program are aware that we spoke of transitions that would be made in phases. We are now in phase one, which is to bring the entire business into compliance for KYC (Know Your Customer / Client) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) laws that pertain to all businesses handling financial transactions.

    This means that all future financial transactions between WWSz and our members will take place only with those persons who have completed the KYC and AML compliance procedure. This applies to South Africa members as well as to our international members.

    The checklist below outlines the documentation that we are required to collect for KYC and AML per the Reserve Bank of South Africa.

    At this time, approximately 30% of our members have completed the compliance procedure. It is our preference to include 100% of our members in this phase before we move on. However, we will not hold up the entire business and those who are cooperating in order for everyone to finally comply.

    Everyone wishing to be included in this phase should send their documentation as outlined to compliance@worldwidesolutionz.com by the end of Wednesday, January 21, 2015 South Africa time so we can wrap this up and move on to the next phase.

    Anyone who misses the January 21 cut off will have the opportunity to complete the KYC and AML compliance process at a later date, sometime after we have everything up and running again for all of the members who have cooperated and sent in compliance in a timely manner. Again, remember that all financial transactions moving forward will be only with those accounts that have cleared KYC and AML. Failure to comply by the stated deadline will result in significant delays for progress on member accounts not included in this phase.

    Here again are the documentation requirements. Please send via email to compliance@worldwidesolutionz.com.
    Full name: First name and last name, and proof of identity. (Passport, or other government issued ID.)
    Registration numbers and papers for businesses if you have a business registered with us. If you do not have a business registered, just indicate N/A for this item.
    Proof of residence. Must be physical address and postal address if applicable.

    Reason (relationship) for doing business with WorldWide SolutionZ.>>> 5% weekly
    Currency used when sending funds to WWSz for Registrations, Life Jackets and other transactions.
    Total out-of-pocket funds added to WorldWide SolutionZ Life Jacket Account. Attach proof of funding transactions. Out-of-pocket refers only to funds sent from outside of WWSz and does not include purchases made with earnings in WWSz wallets.
    Proof of income used to fund WorldWide SolutionZ accounts, (where did the money come from ie, salaries, savings, loans, etc) Attach screenshots.
    Confirmation that you read, understood and accepted the WWSz membership agreement. Simply state either “Yes” or “No” to indicate your response.
    Confirmation that you read, understood, and accepted the Private Membership Agreement and Articles of Association. Simply state either “Yes” or “No” to indicate your response.
    Confirmation that you have not been offered shares in WorldWide SolutionZ and do not own shares in WorldWide SolutionZ at this point in time. Simply state either “Yes” or “No” to indicate your response.

    All questions regarding the above requirements and this compliance process should be directed to Carlo via email at this address: resolutionllb@gmail.com, please cc compliance@worldwidesolutionz.com in all correspondence to ensure we have m ore help available overall.

    The process on our end is intensive. We work with entities who work office hours, so we have to make time to connect with them when they are available. While this project is huge and all-consuming for us, it is just another project to include in multi-tasking for those who are helping us with the paperwork. We spend our days assisting to make everything flow as smoothly as possible, along with addressing other things involved with preparing to return to business.

    We need all the cooperation we can get, to help us focus and save time. AND SAVE OUR A.. We believe that all of our members want to continue to success with their WWSz accounts, and we ask that everyone cooperate accordingly.

    We want to answer all emails, skypes, messages and calls, but we just can’t take the time right now to do that. That is why we have two very specific email addresses for member contact for this process:

    Send your compliance email with documents to compliance@worldwidesolutionz.com.

    Send your questions regarding the process, including clarification for what is required for documentation, to resolutionllb@gmail.com.

    We will get to the other emails and correspondence when we catch up a bit, please duplicate,
    angry and threatening e mails are not only adding to pressuere but also causing delays we can not afford at this time, time is precious and we need to make the most of every second we have available.

    Some people have been sending multiple repeat emails daily. Think about it, please. If you want success, you must contribute by cooperating so that we can get through this as quickly as possible. I understand the fear and anger that some are experiencing, but now it is time for each and every person to do their part so that we can get the big picture taken care of.

    Time is precious. There are many things to do and consider as we plan for going forward.

    Thank you for reading this update! Remember to share it with your downline, and keep it in a safe place so that you can read it again at your convenience. We know that everyone is eager to have the site come back up, the withdrawal function enabled, and payments resume. We are too! So let’s work together and get through this phase of what is on our path.

    Thank you also to everyone who is cooperating and helping others to complete the compliance process. We appreciate you all so very much!

    We will continue to send out updates as we progress.

    Love, Light and Gratitude

    GOOD LORD !!!

    Anyone who sends the sort of information being asked for via unsecure email might as well just go out into the street and personally ask criminals to come and steal their identity and empty their accounts.

    I am sure that after the Reserve Bank sees those KYC applications, the bank will be crazy not to invest all their money for 5% weekly itself :)

    One has to ask is Carlo just another sucker who has been fooled by Marelize? Or is he another criminal among the many involved in the WWSz Ponzi scheme?
    He is a "criminal lawyer" after all.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    Marelize says that "Trading" does not mean what the word "Trading" means. Instead she says it means conducting business. Well, when you are offering a 5% weekly rate of return you are "trading" Marelize.

    But they left out one very important question for the authorities: Did you quit your job to make WWSz your full-time income? Sadly too many people did just that. I have been contacted by several members of WWSz and they told me that there are a large number of people who have invested their savings, took out home loans to invest, or maxed out their credit cards to invest in WWSz. Those alone will get Marelize and WWSz in a world of hurt if the people are honest in answering the questions they need answered. Of course the vast majority only joined to get the 5% per week. Wonder how many will be truthful in answering that was their reason.

    Can't wait for the next update. It is sure to be a real gem. Can you imagine the anger at all the members who do not comply with the documentation request but still want their money back? The members don't get it yet that there is no money to pay anyone.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    Here is the latest update from the scammers running WWSz, posted by zoezeth over at MMG Board Message It's clear that they are attempting to slowly walk away with the money.

    "further streamlining our communications."

    Dear WWSz,


    We just want to send a brief update today to keep in touch and let you know that things are progressing.

    Unfortunately no one is able to give us any indication for time lines at this point. What we do know is that the paperwork is monumental and will just take however long it takes to get through it all.

    For those who have sent in the requested documentation, thank you so much. We are not taking the time to reply to every email. If you sent your documentation and the email didnít bounce back to you, we have it. We are reviewing the documentation, member by member. If additional information is needed for your account, you will hear from Carlo.



    As soon as we have specific details to share, we will schedule a conference to bring everyone up to date.

    To all who are standing by and supporting us during these growing pains - thank you from the bottom of my heart. A great big thank you too on behalf of our team and the kids and families we are here to serve.

    Love, Light and Gratitude,

    Marelize

    PS: SKYPE

    This is just a quick note to say hi, and to let you know that we are further streamlining our communications. I will be leaving all of the current Skype groups, including this one. In many cases, that means the group will close. I will set up one new Skype group for keeping in touch. Thank you, and enjoy your day! M xx

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    When one of the usual suspect HYIP ponzi forums moves your program into the "Closed, Inactive and Offline" section, you just know you've lost your money and it's time to move on.



    The Worldwide Solutionz thread on the MMG HYIP ponzi forum

    Is Marelize going to admit the critics were right all along and Worldwide Solutionz was a guaranteed-to-fail HYIP ponzi fraud ???

    N-o-o-o-o, she still thinks she can squeeze a few extra dollars out of the faithful by keep them hanging in there.


    Hopefully this was blatant enough and the end brutal enough that some of the newbies who got stung will know better next time they're hit on to join something so obviously shady
    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

    For those who have sent in the requested documentation, thank you so much.
    I needed something to sell to keep me afloat until my next scam.

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    Now what was more telling was a response Marelize gave to someone who had done a chargeback with STP. They reported that she said:

    You do what you have to do, the more people do that the bigger the delays. We have been reported there and they have suspended some of our privileges

    With everybody threatening and reporting us everywhere the delays are getting bigger and hope less. Hope it will make you feel better though and that you will get it al sorted.


    Another poster let the cat out of the bag when they said:

    They were blocking accounts of members trying to withdraw. While the rest waited days, weeks to get paid, Tink/Cricket Bug/Monica once made a slip that she gets her eglobal withdraw in 24 hrs. which is not sitting well with the members who cannot get their money out.

    This is toast no matter what goodness and light spin Marelize tries to put out for her next update. This is really going to get ugly and more so than other Ponziís due to this was supposed to be ďall for the children.Ē

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    Here is the latest update from Marelize as posted at MMG:

    Dear WorldWide SolutionZ Members,

    THE OFFICIAL E-MAIL ADDRESS TO BE USED AS FROM TODAY IS legal@worldwidesolutionz.com

    As you all know, the WorldWide SolutionZ mission is to feed children and help people repair their lives and find hope. Thatís all I ever wanted to do. I never realised how many different entities would get involved and how cost will increase as peopleís demands grew and as the core dream of the business was not adopted by all, or how the business and some people involved would change and delay what we set out to do both on and off line. As you all know, we always worked with the authorities, financial and others and was never told that we were on the wrong track until late last year when we immidiately started taking action as we got information and guidance.

    It is killing me that people send me hate mails saying things I never even thought no matter how bad I thought someone was or how much I disliked what they did to me or others. What keeps me going and holding on is my boys and the few true people who are also hurting and sharing their hurt but without trying to break me, my boys and WWSz. I am so so sorry for every person affected, most of all the children I want to help and my own children who have never done anything wrong. Yes the food drives are starting to feel the pressure and even though I am trying to get outside help the damage is affecting us more and more daily, but I will keep trying. I am still here and I try to stay in contact. I decided not to leave the Skype groups as announced, but can not take part in all of the group conversations so I will react and leave messages as I get time.

    I am so so sorry for the people who feel hate and anger towards me and WWSz (I'm angry not because you stopped paying, and for the people hurting, suffering and feeling scared. I understand all this and try to handle it in ways to prevent more harm. Unfortunately it is hard with only about 2% of people helping and supporting through this difficult process. We have great support from our Advocate, financial team, my boys and volunteers and others involved.

    - WITH ALL MY HEART I AM SO SORRY AND TRYING MY BEST TO GET US THROUGH THIS AS FAST AS AS I CAN WORKING WITH THE AUTHORITIES AND PEOPLE INVOLVED.

    COMPLIANCE PROCESS UPDATE

    On January 15, 2015, we sent an update explaining that KYC and AML documentation is required of all members. This was met with a variety of responses ranging from immediate cooperation by some, total disregard by many, and thousands of repeated emails from angry individuals refusing to comply. We understand the emotions people experience in times like this. We understand the fear, the frustration, the anger, and the desire to lash out something doesnít go as hoped. We understand, and we tried to muster all of the patience and caring attitudes we possibly could. Still, compliance is not optional and we have to move forward. We announced a deadline for members who wish to be included in the compliance process. Compliance requirement filing is now officially closed and we are proceeding processing the files of the members who have sent the required documentation. We are aware of some arrangements and will stick to what we agreed to.

    We receive upwards of 500 emails per hour at times from people expecting to hear feedback and then demanding responses to inquiries asking about feedback. Dealing with the email volume creates huge delays for the team, keeping them from being able to focus on processing the documentation for compliance and getting back on track. Again, if your email did not bounce back, we have received it. You will be contacted by our Advocate or myself if more is needed.

    Since mid-2014 we have been advising the membership of the difficulties regarding money movement across borders. We understand that people are disappointed and angry and need to vent, and we are doing everything we can to get through this process. Many people took it upon themselves to report us to financial authorities such as STP, IPayout, OKPay and others, including some we never even dealt with. This added a lot of strain, cost and delay, and in some cases suspension of our benefits, meaning there will be more delays trying to get this back on track.

    EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE BEEN BLOCKED BY STP FOR SOME OF OUR BENEFITS DUE TO PEOPLE REPORTING US, WE STILL HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP AND WORK WITH THEM AND ALL OTHER AUTHORITIES WHO ALL KNEW ABOUT THE PROBLEMS WE ARE DEALING WITH EVEN BEFORE WE GOT REPORTED.

    A lot of threats, bad press and people reporting us has caused a lot of damage, delays and cost we did not expect to have to deal with and it is causing even more loss, heartache and harm. Unfortunately, we have had to spend time, energy and money to deal with damage caused by negative press, further delaying our ability to move forward.

    Our payment gateway had to stop operating due to all the bad press. E-Global has gone above and beyond to help us, but there is only so much they can do. If we could move bank accounts, it would make the money mangement process easier for sure. Unfortunately, that is not an option available to us at this time. Debit cards not yet delivered are being sent. If you have money in your e-Global account, please withdraw it as soon as possible.

    We are following up on forums and all public places, social media, Skype, text messages, emails and calls, etc. to evaluate the extent to which members have breached the Membership Agreement, E-Mail Agreements, Spam Policy Agreement or PMA rules. Breaches are being dealt with. Several hundred accounts have already been closed and others will follow as deemed necessary to enforce the agreements. People get notice as accounts are closed with the reasons it has been done. We are now focusing on catching up for going forward, whatever direction we are guided into taking.

    It takes us hours to sort files and connect information. Remember, there are thousands of members - thousands of files - that have to be sorted and dealt with. We cannot afford to appoint more people to assist with this process unless people are willing to pay for the extra help. This would have to be in the form of compliance documentation processing fees, payable by every member involved. We are still thinking about this and will send out details if we decide to charge fees.

    By now you all know that compliance and dealing with financial institutions like The Reserve Bank, Exchange Control, banks, the government and municipalities is no easy task. They do not care about hurrying up for us, our issues are not urgent to them, we are just someone in the 8-5 queue.

    Advocate C. Viljoen has gone above and beyond to help and assist but the overwhelming masses of repeated mails cause delays. He asked people from the start to please understand and help. Even so, his office is overrun with hundreds of repeat emails. As from now, response time on all emails, messages, etc will be 10 - 14 days. Duplicate emails within this timeframe will be charged fees depending on departments and skills needed and involved. The fees will be deducted from the memberís WWSz accounts meaning account values will be affected in line with due fees, empty accounts will be charged by invoice or closed.

    THE OFFICIAL E-MAIL ADDRESS TO BE USED AS FROM TODAY IS legal@worldwidesolutionz.com

    As mentioned before, this process is extremely expensive, and more pressure means more costs and delays. More delays means more losses of funds. Please keep in mind we have now officially not been moving funds for some time, and weíve kept members informed all along. Since starting this compliance process, offline also suffered extremely, adding to the pressure.

    WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?

    A number of members have asked, what about the kids we were helping to feed? Are they still receiving the food supplement? Thankfully, we have some stock and I am speaking with other sources to help. Itís pulling strain but we do get help and we will not give up whatever happens. Thank you so much for caring and for the people helping with this, our main reason for existing.

    NEXT STEPS

    This update is STEP ONE in going forward and dealing with what comes our way and helping to determine the direction we decide to follow.
    For your reference and convenience, each of you will receive copies of:

    The Members Agreement
    Marketing Guidelines
    Articles of Association
    PMA (Private Membership Agreement)
    Spam Policy

    Also remember all updates ever sent out are part of rules and regulations as mentioned in related agreements and contracts.
    STEP 2, CHOICES AND OPTIONS, will be decided and announced the moment we have worked through ALL membersí files, compliance, breaches, figures and all business related issues involved.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO

    Please read all correspondence, cooperate with requests, and work with any deadlines given. If you miss a deadline, you will have to contact us for instructions.
    If you know of downline members who need help to understand and keep up with everything and you are willing to help them, that would be great. Even so, itís up to each person to be responsible for how they work with us, or not, and whether they stick with the membership agreement, PMA and other documents they agreed to, understood and accepted as we operated over the past 2 years.

    THANK YOU

    I want to thank each and every person who believes in our mission - especially those who are hurting just as much as we are and some even more. Thank you for the help and support and for standing by us. Thank you for showing that you know this is about so much more than just money. Words cannot express how much it means to have your support to continue with what we are here for. I will do everything in my power to try and help and to get us through this. I can not at this time make any forecasts, guess time frames or predict any outcomes of what is coming and how we will all be affected, but I will, with the help of all involved deal with this every day as we go.
    From the bottom of my heart, be Blessed

    Love, Light and Gratitude
    Marelize xx


    So much for them not being under investigation. I especially loved that they are going to take money from the members accounts to pay all their costs to do what should have been done before they launched, but then that would have meant it would have never launched in the first place.

    Anyone who thinks this is coming back is living in fantasy land. She is just delaying the inevitable by hoping she can con enough people with her sob story to send them more money so she doesn't have to pay these costs out of her pocket. I think Quinton should step up and pay these costs from some of the revenue he is generating from the restaurant that was bought for him, don't you?

    Re: WorldWide SolutionZ - next big thing or another HYIP ponzi fraud

    And the saga continues with this latest update from Marelize:

    Dear Members,

    First let me say thank you to all the supporters for your care and patience, I know it has been painful, hard and nerve wrecking.
    Again I apologise to all for the delays and pain caused by this process. I assure you that it has affected us more than you could ever think -
    both as a business and personally.
    We certainly would have chosen an alternate path for WorldWide SolutionZ and all included if we could have.
    We do work day and night and hope to have this behind us sooner rather than later, moving WWSz into the future.

    I am sorry too for all of the memberships we have had to cancel and still cancel daily for members who choose to breach existing member agreements
    and / or the PMA agreement. I really feel we could have gotten through this together as we do through so many difficult times,
    but that takes willingness and cooperation by all parties involved and unfortunately some individuals have not been willing.
    Members being cancelled are notified by email as we work through the data base.
    There accounts are closed, they are informed with the reason and the subject is then closed.
    There is no time frame estimate for the completion of this as with all
    Other processes in action at this time.

    CLOSED-CIRCLE PRIVATE MEMBERSHIP

    Please note: WorldWide SolutionZ is now a closed circle.
    Current members who meet all of the following requirements will continue with us:

    Sent in KYC and AML documentation by the January 21, 2015 deadline as requested or as arranged and accepted after.
    Agree to, sign, and return the following agreements by stated deadlines to be sent within the following couple of days: (see next paragraph on NEW AGREEMENTS)
    a) Privacy and Confidentiality Agreement and Non Disclosure Agreement
    b) Intelectual Property Agreement
    c) Restraint of Trade Agreement
    After all documents received all members who adhered to the deadlines will receive offers they may choose from going forward.

    NEW AGREEMENTS

    Over the next few days, those who sent in KYC / AML compliance documentation by the stated deadline as requested or arranged will receive three new agreements:
    a) Privacy and Confidentiality Agreement and Non Disclosure Agreement
    b) Intelectual Property Agreement
    c) Restraint of Trade Agreement
    Specific instructions for signing and returning these agreements will be included in the email. Please be prepared to read carefully, make mindful decisions, and respond accordingly.
    This is a really important process taking us into the future and a lot rides on this.
    Deadlines are going to be extremely important, please please make sure you read all mails, contracts and get help if needed.

    Additional individuals may be allowed to join us - by invitation only - after all is repaired and back on track.
    Note to members who missed the KYC / AML deadline: You will not automatically lose your account.
    Please send a mail to legal@worldwidesolutionz.com for consideration.

    Only the people who return these agreements per instructions and deadlines and have done the KYC / AML compliance will go forward with WWSz.
    PLEASE THIS HAS BEEN A LONG ROAD AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS, MAKE SURE YOU RE READ YOUR AGREEMENTS
    AND PMA AND EVERY LETTER ON THE NEW AGREEMENTS FORMING PART OF WWSz GOING FORWARD INTO A BRIGHT FUTURE.
    EVERYTHING WORTH IT IS HARD WORK, WE LEARNT THE HARD WAY AND WE WILL NOT GIVE UP!!

    AGAIN PLEASE NOTE: After this process is completed, A FEW offers will go out to each of these people and from there on we will know who is going forward and who is not.

    We cannot predict a time frame for this, as it is a extreme, serious and tedious process and we have to work in line with all the rules and regulations worldwide of all entities involved for us to get our across-border transaction approvals back and WWSz back on track, legal in all aspects, stronger, better and with a future we can all count on.

    COMMUNICATION

    I am sorry for all the Skype and email messages I can not respond to; at the current moment I have more than 3000 emails and 1400 Skypes. I am sorry if I miss anything. I work as hard as I can to get through it all. I am not responding to phone messages, WhatsApp messages or calls anymore. I am sorry there just is no time. We would like to work faster, but doing things right is now of the utmost importance as well as saving and making sure we protect WWSz and all involved. Please hang in there iith us, we have come this far and we will not give up.

    For any questions , please send email to legal@worldwidesolutionz.com.

    Expected response time is 12 - 14 days.

    Please watch for the next updates and instructions!

    THANK YOU

    I love you all and I want to thank everyone who has been supportive and cooperative. And a great big thank you in advance to all who will expedite this next phase by reading, signing, and returning the new agreements and offers in a timely manner.

    A very special thank you to the people helping behind the scenes, all the offers to help, our legal and financial partners and my amazing boys and Ö.. All of you I can not even mention as I will never get time to anything elseÖ THANK YOU!!

    Love, Light and Gratitude,
