Those of you, who read our articles or are subscribers to MLM Help Desk, know MLM attorney and advocate Kevin Thompson is both a friend and our legal counsel. As I wrote in my last post, I had forwarded to Kevin the letter from the Global Verge attorney along with my response.
As you know, Global Verge’s attorney sent me a threatening letter last week (read Global Verge Demand Letter here) and alleged that my content was defamatory. Specifically, their attorneys aid that the following title was defamatory and “not true”
Over the weekend, Kevin and I had a conversation. In the interest of fairness and based on Kevin’s legal counsel, we are disclosing our source of information to publicly demonstrate our factual basis for writing the article. Activation King’s CEO, Chris Greco, specifically informed me that Global Verge was dropped because of their failure to pay.
On, January 21st, 2009 we received the following email. I followed up with a personal phone call to Chris Greco to verify he had personally sent the email and not some underhanded competitor of Global Verge.

Subject: We have officially cut ties with Buzzirk mobile and Global Verge
. . .We have severed ties with Global Verge for nonpayment of airtime, and the absolute miss management of shipping, activating, you name it. And for taking these people money and telling them bold face lies. . . .
President and CEO
Activation King Wireless.]
Once I verified the email was authentic, I shot the video, and we published the article. For all those interested, Chris Greco has followed up by answering all critics and supporters on the above-mentioned post, through the MLM Help Desk comment section.
As readers of our content, we’re eternally grateful that you choose to spend a little bit of time with us to learn more about our industry. As you know, we publicly celebrate the great companies and we publicly call out the bad ones. I view it as part of my responsibility in this industry and it’s an absolute privilege. I have zero economic incentive to wrongfully disparage a business.
As always, we welcome Global Verge to respond with proper documentation. And if they have a different side to the story, I will give my word to publish it. We want to encourage vigorous debate on this website and if I’m in the wrong, I will be the first to admit it. Currently, I have no reason to believe otherwise than what I’ve already written about Global Verge and until I’m given new information, I will not acquiesce to threats of a legal action.
