Robert Craddock decided that instead of responding to what his right hand man David Kettner wrote on Saturday, or what Jordan Maglich founder of PonziTracker.com wrote, he would try and use an old political tactic of pointing to the messenger… In this case MLM Help Desk and Troy Dooly! Why?
Since I believe the Zeek Rewards affiliates deserve the truth on every issue, when someone like Craddock wants to avoid the questions raised and cause in his words “an emotional roller coaster” then I figure it is best to provide to the best of my ability some answers.
[quote]Troy site did not get the traffic it now enjoys before Zeek Rewards, but in the last 4 weeks the traffic has shot up as shown by this graph from Alexa[/quote]
Now sure why he feels this is something new. Many folks have brought this up every time we cover any critical information. But let’s take a deeper look at things.
Now it is easy to see above that Craddock and his crew have not gotten any real traffic until we started covering their story. (of course they did not exist until the closure of Zeek Rewards either) And in the beginning because he was introduced to me by a friend, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I did take the time to ask some specific questions and he was quick to answer.
But as time went on and things were not happening as he said they would and he refused to respond to emails, I started to wonder like many others what his true motive was, or is!
Now let’s take a look at the same graph since MLM Help Desk started becoming the main source of information for Zeek Rewards info by the affiliates who were looking for a place to speak their mind.
Interesting… Now we see somewhat of a different story than what Craddock shows on his three month trailing graph. But something that he did get right… “The zeek rewards affiliates have and are on an emotional roller coaster.” And it shows in the above graph. Each time a major event took place at Rex Venture Group, the affiliates went looking for answers.
[quote]Troy Dooly was capitalizing on your pain and confusion.[/quote]
Seriously? By forcing Robert Craddock and crew to remove false information about SNR Denten representing them to hurting Zeek Rewards Affiliates, Craddock feels that I have in some way capitalized on the emotions of Zeek Rewards Affiliates, and betrayed him?
Or maybe Craddock is talking about the fact I contacted him prior to publishing an email presented by his right hand man David Kettner, which stated some very questionable and possibly false information about the SEC to already hurting Zeek Rewards Affiliates who are looking for the truth, not pipe dreams.
Or maybe it was my publishing of Jordan Maglich’s article from PonziTracker.com rebutting the information Robert Croddock’s purported attorney told him came directly from the mouth of an SEC official.
If that is what Craddock calls “Capitalizing on your pain and confusion”, then guilty as charged!
Now take a second and ask yourself this question… Why isn’t Robert Craddock or his attorney answering the hard questions?
Even in the most damaging of capital murder cases, the attorney’s are willing to address the media and talk about heir case. In the current issue surrounding Craddock, first of all there is NO case, since nothing has been filed in court. So why not answer the most simple of questions… Did you, Robert Craddock say what your friend David Kettner publicly states you said?
Why is he attacking the largest outlet of Zeek Reward info in the world? This is the oldest political trick in the book. When you can’t answer the questions, because the answers are to embarrassing, then you do all you can to deflect the issues, and question the agenda of others.
[quote]Troy wanted to capitalize on this, again as you can see by the spike in traffic.[/quote]
ROFLOL… sure we offer advertising. Heck anyone who has watched one of our videos knows we monetize as many as YouTube will allow. And many of you have been rewarded over the last few months at advertising your Zeek Reward’s business and many other businesses right here.
Craddock, seems to feel that if you are charged $25 per month or $50 per month for an ad, that is taking advantage of you… Why? Ask yourself which is a safer risk… advertising for your home-base business or sending money to someone who lies about who their attorney really is until pushed into a corner?
By the way, yes we do use Google Ad Sense on all of our Blogs, including our newest blog TechAndGamingNews.com in order to help keep our monthly membership plan at $10 per month and to keep the banner ads at a reasonable price for the average network marketing distributor.
I almost forgot we also make money from ads on our radio show BeachsideCEO also. But that sure doesn’t keep 40,000 people a month from listening or getting any less value from the show.
[quote]I would say to you that Troy wanted to get updates starting on the 5th of September and, have responded to Troy that we needed to let the information he received will need to come from court filings. Now this is not going to drive traffic to his site so he needs to create a sense of panic, and he has done that.[/quote]
Well it was really September 1st when I sent the following email to Robert Craddock.
“From: Troy Dooly [mailto:email@example.com]
Sent: Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:48 PM
To: ‘Robert Craddock’
Subject: question on case
Wanted to check in and get an update on the situation and ask a few questions for my next post.
1. Has the engagement letter now been signed and the $100K sent to the law firm?
2. When will a press release be going out from the law firm?
3. Will the law firm establish an escrow account for folks to deposit money into?
4. Will you establish a trust account administered by a 3rd party, such as a federally insured bank?
5. Do you have an outside board of directors for Fun Group USA?
6. Have you taken out a E&O policy to protect you and others from lawsuits?
Ok, as you can tell the questions have been flying in. Right now the biggest issue you face is the critics are trying to prove you are not credible based on you fighting them in the past, and because of some of the questionable affiliates who are boldly making it clear they have joined the fight.
Give me all the documentation you can, and all the facts so I can report in a clear a precise manner.
Living An Epic Adventure,
So it was not on the 5th, it was four days before that. But instead of responding to these questions, Robert Craddock called on the phone to state SNR Denten had pulled out. Yet, it was not until September 7th, 2012 that the ZTeamBoz website was updated. Sometime after I published the fact they pulled out. Personally I feel the Zeek Reward Affiliates, who are donating money for Robert Craddock to be represented, should get the truth at every step of the way, and it should come first from Robert Craddock, not MLMHelPDesk.
Now let’s look at what happened after the 5th of September 2012. This cam from a quote from David Kettner’s email of September 8th, 2012…
[quote]Ok, well that is a wealth of information…Please be sure to share this news with everyone.[/quote]
This email went viral as they expected and instead of Robert answering a simple question “Did you say these things or not?” he wants to say my answers would come from a court filing? A court filing is NOT (unless someone sues Craddock for fraud for this email) is going to tell me anything.
From what it looks like to me this email may have been a ploy to keep folks from wondering why SNR Denten had not been removed from the ZTeamBiz website days before my original post.
[quote]I’m posting this now to help you understand that Troy needs to keep the prior Zeek Affiliates in a panic and let you think that the latest news will come from Troy but I’m here to tell you that you will only get updates from me in your secure backend area[/quote]
Well, let me get this straight. In a previous website update Craddock posts…
[quote]Due to lack of foresight SNR Denton was hounded with thousands of calls, emails and yes, harassment and threats when people could not get answers quick enough.[/quote]
So now he feels that by not responding to simple requests and putting it behind a “secured backend area” that he is going to keep Zeek Rewards Affiliates from calling the attorney or from them sharing important information with the public.
If I was in Robert’s shoes I might want to focus on what these “prior Zeek Rewards Affiliates” might think of him not disclosing all the important information. If they were willing to threaten and harass a legal team who is suppose to be protecting their interests (well Robert’s interests with their money), then they may really get ticked off now! Especially if they find out, they are not being told the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
This is not about me at all, and never has been. Sadly, Robert Craddock, would like you to believe that I am the issue that is causing everyone to have some emotional roller coaster ride. Well take a second and read the questions below.
But first think about the sentence below from Craddock’s ZTeam Biz website.
[quote]As some of you are aware of, we have made changes in law firms that are assisting us in providing protection against possible crawl back action by the SEC.[/quote]
How is stopping “Claw back action going to help you get your refunds? And while you are at it, here are a few more questions to think about.
1. Why did Craddock collect legal defense funds from former Zeek Rewards Affiliates under false pretenses of collecting for SNR Denten, instead of just telling the truth, that a change had to be made?
2. Why is Robert Craddock now blaming the very Zeek Rewards Affiliates who paid money into the legal defense fund, as the reason SNR Denten withdrew from the case? Sure doesn’t seem very appreciative of the folks who are paying the legal bills.
3. In the last two posts I have published, which I did NOT write, why has not Craddock or his purported attorney not address the fact that, one David Kettner purports that Robert Craddock personally told him the SEC has admitted to making a mistake in the Rex Venture Group case, instead of trying to bypass the issue and make me the issue?
Or that Jorden Maglich’s rebuttle was a bold face lie, and have his attorney prove his purported statements?
There is no doubt Robert Craddock believes he is doing something good for someone. But what he seems to not get, is that of all the internet voices, I am a friend to the affiliates, and still stand firm, based on hours of conversations with the legal, compliance and compensation teams, Zeek Rewards was not created to be run as a ponzi.
With that said, I do need to be very clear, I do NOT believe Zeek Rewards will ever reopen or was even close to being a perfectly run company. And I also admit that I do not know what might have gone on behind the scenes that I nor others I spoke with (or some I did speak with) was going on in the background.
I do believe that had, Greg Caldwell been given enough time to replace all the former executives with outside professionals, and made the planned changes to the compensation plan, that Zeek Rewards might still be doing business today.
At the end of the day, all that matters is the Truth and Justice prevails for the former Zeek Rewards Affiliates and they get the refunds they deserve.
Well… And I would really love to see the SEC complaint tried in an open court and the evidence examined and defended.
At the end of the day I report and give my opinions based on the facts and my beliefs as I see them. Then I open up the floor for all to comment so you the former Zeek Reward Affiliates, can decide on what your future should be.
