It happened with Global then our newest processor. She was out of options as people patience was already wearing thin.

    It wasn't ever a business. All of you participated in an illegal PONZI scheme. And even more delusional would be for anyone to think that any leader or admin didn't know it.
    Not only that but any investigation didn't just start yesterday. Their great leaders just aren't telling them when it actually did as they have known for quite awhile. Guarantee it started before 2014 ended.

    I thought this was worth posting here too. Sad, frustrating, scary and true.

    "When you have people who make it their whole life’s job of stealing from others without them paying any consequences, this stuff will never go away.
    Them and the people who run these are not called con men/con women for nothing. They are really good at what they do. The admin is always the most honest, trustworthy person they know, or so the claim goes while they know the admin is a crook.
    I have been exposing these illegal programs for over 10 years and have spent the last seven years with our nonprofit corporation helping educating and warning the public, and assisting law enforcement agencies worldwide to close these programs down and seize a much assets as they can to return to the victims of these illegal programs.
    When the Ponzi pimps/promoters start having to pay a heavy price for their role, this will continue unabated.
    For every program that is shut down, there are at least 20 that take its place immediately. My guess is there are over 12,000 of these illegal programs operating right now on the Internet, and that doesn’t count all those that are not on the Internet.
    In shourt law enforcement agencies worldwide are short on manpower, resources, and overwhelmed with all the crime they have to deal with on a daily basis.
    To fully answer your question would be pages and pages of information, and I still would not be able to cover it all. Hope this was of some help."

    I believe it will take a campaign to get ahead of this battle. I also think that if attorneys can get a percentage of recovered funds, a percentage can also go to fund that campaign.

    But what do I know!

    Re: The Achieve Community - huge ponzi scam

    Rodney Blackburn is very sorry about what happened with achieve. Apparently he is in shock & doesn't know what happened.
    Don't worry though God is on his side.
    Amazingly enough is seems he has some other "opportunities" to pimp you. He is going to "help" as many people as he can.

    Oh dear,

    so there WAS a falling out between Kristi Johnson and Rodney Blackburn


    Anyone who believes a word that comes out of Blackburns' mouth from here on in really does deserve to be ripped off.

    Re: The Achieve Community - huge ponzi scam

    See what happens when positive thinking runs out of control, "The Secret" is your Bible and Robert Kiyosaki is your God ??

    We all know what happened to Achieve this week.

    So, what does this bunch of Achievers do ??

    Accept they've been robbed and vow never to become involved with HYIP ponzis again ???

    N-O-O-O-O

    Form a new Facebook group where only positive posts about Achieve are allowed
    . That'll fix it



    Don't tell me HYIP ponzis are just a bit of harmless fun

    Oz at behindMLM reported that before Troy's FB page was closed he said that the SEC had closed Achieve down.

    It's amazing they are alleged to have took in $3.8 million in this nothing special run of the mill scam + ebooks.

    Not surprising however that the money seems went to the Troy and Kristi slush fund.

    Shocking that Troy blames Kristi and all the naysayers out there for the downfall.

    The first Ponzi scheme that I ever diligently followed after StockGeneration caught my attention (meaning I joined their MSN group and watched it evolve from the usual outrageous promises to the lights being turned out) sucked up $2.6 million.

    Linda Kruger of Dumas, Texas (who was ALL about Jesus) promoted the "prime-bank" story of a con artist calling himself Julian Temple-Savage. Julian posed as a rich guy who was plugged in to that "secret society" who could get the little guys into those secret banking deals that could turn $100 into $6,400 in six months. They offered a 3-month teaser as bait and paid enough people that over 4,000 gullible followers piled in.

    No product (digital or otherwise), just lots of assurances that God was personally going to help out all those fine folks.

    LetsProsperTogether2 ...

    Hey Matt Mahoney! You set them up with web-hosting and a private forum when MSN shut them down. What are you up to these days?
