MLM WATCHDOG: Phil Piccolo Is Scamming Again

(2ND UPDATE 3:26 P.M. EDT U.S.A.) Rod Cook, who publishes the “MLM Watchdog” and was threatened with a $40 million lawsuit by the AdSurfDaily Ponzi racketeers in 2008, is reporting that veteran swindler Phil Piccolo is back on the prowl. This time, Cook reports, it’s with a cobra-venom product sold at MyNyloxin.com. The product is […]

Breaking Ponzi Bulletin From Patrick Pretty: Zeekers Targeted In New Scheme With Ties To Piccolo Organization

B 5:37 pm Aug 30, 2013

truecashnetworkBULLETIN: Zeek Rewards members are being targeted in a new scheme with ties to the Phil Piccolo organization and are being solicited for sums ranging from $600 to $60,000 “in return for ” . . .  “guaranteed 50 percent interest” from a purported “unique and legal loan system” over an unspecified time period, the PP Blog has learned.

The offering, which hints of some sort of falling out with Zeek’s management, has been styled on YouTube as “The Diamond Club by TRUE CASH.” The emerging “program” was the subject of an email pitch yesterday that appears to have been targeted by an unknown party at former Zeek “Diamond” affiliates, potentially including some of Zeek’s largest “winners” who have exposure to clawback lawsuits filed by the court-appointed receiver and who previously have been solicited to make contributions to a purported defense fund for Zeek affiliates. Zeek “losers” also could be targets.

Previous schemes linked to Piccolo include the uber-bizarre Data Network Affiliates (DNA) “program” and One World One Website (OWOW), an equally bizarre money grab. (Use the PP Blog’s search function for information on those “programs.”) (read Full Bulletin At PatrickPretty.com)

How Long Has MLM Help Desk Known Phil Piccolo Has Been With Data Network Affiliates

Well, it seems some folks think the connection between Phil Piccolo and Data Network Affiliates has been a secret. And I guess it might have been for folks who have no interest in DNA until we posted on Chris Greco’s travels through the different MLM Wireless Companies.


So how long have we known Phil Piccolo aka Warren Anthony has been a part of DNA?

1. Our first post on Phil Piccolo is dated on March 5th, 2010 “Data Network Affiliates and narc technologies May Be Lying to their Distributors

Inside this post you will read “But… After talking with Dean, I started doing some new research and realized that although Rod Cook the MLM Watchdog broke the story of Phil Piccollo being the mastermind behind DNA and Business From Home put up a review of Phil which set off a wave of controversy. And let’s not forget Patrick Pretty was really the first big blog to break the stories on both Narc Technologies (Narc That Car) and DNA (Data network Affiliates.) “

“If it’s true that Phil Piccolo is the mastermind behind DNA (Rumors are starting to flow that Phil may also be focusing on Automatic Geek another MLM startup) and the FTC comes down on this company. Then these both Arthur Kurek and Donald Kessler could be fined huge amounts for allowing Piccolo to run the company behind the scenes. But even worse Arthur Kurek who has worked in the highly regulated Insurance Industry for over 40 years could see his career go down the drain, or at the very least be faced with early retirement.”

Second Post was published on March 10, 2010 Phil Piccolo Calls and Threatens to File Lawsuit Against MLM Help Desk and Troy Dooly

In this post we list the following.

1. Phil Piccolo, if he is not MLMs most notorious scammer, (which by the time I am done, I will know one way or another) has to be one of the most unlucky MLM professional in history.

2. If Phil Piccolo has harmed you, your team, or your family in any way, I want you to write a comment below and let us know.

3. Phil Piccolo has at least one very well respected MLM Professional as a very close friend. This person is someone I respect, admire and have called on more than once for advice, either directly or through the training they provide.

4. Phil Piccolo understands I will not take anything off of MLM help Desk, but I will continue to write blog posts, and shoot videos sharing the facts as they become available.

What I want from every person who reads this blog post, is for you to write a comment covering one of the following…

1. If Phil Piccolo has helped you, your team or your family in any way, I want you to write a comment below and let us know.

2. If Phil Piccolo has harmed you, your team, or your family in any way, I want you to write a comment below and let us know.

Now ask yourself… What category is this post listed?
Data Network Affiliates! From the moment Rod Cook and Ted Nuyten went public, we started guiding distributors who are a part of DNA to continue asking the hard questions.

In reviewing all the comments here and elsewhere, DNA reps have and still are asking the hard questions.

On March 16, 2010 I wrote the post on George Madiou is Officially the New CEO of DNA

1. I still have the same concerns as I have had since day one of the legality of using an MLM compensation structure to pay distributors for collecting license plate data.

2. I believe without proper training the distributors who collect this data are leaving themselves and the company open for huge litigation.

3. I respect George Madiou and believe he cares about the distributors he serves.

As I have said in the past only a court can decide about the legality of any company, so time will tell.

Again, we made it very clear, DNA was not off the radar, and the concern of paying distributors for data collecting. As long as DNA is paying ANY MONEY via an MLM Compensation Structure is a huge RED FLAG!

Now, let’s look at specifically what I, Troy Dooly knows without a shadow of a doubt.

1. According to George Madiou Phil Piccolo is a consultant for Data Network Affiliates.

2. According to George Madiou Phil Piccolo has NOTHING to do with any of the financial accounts of Data Network Affiliates

3. We have not found any publicly filed documents showing that Phil Piccolo is an owner of officer of Data Network Affiliates.

And lastly, for those of you who truly read the blog and don’t just watch the video. I have truly learned something over the last six weeks of frequently talking with Phil Piccolo… I truly like the guy, and we have had some great conversations which had nothing to do about business.

Does this mean we are backing off of our investigation and fact finding mission on Piccolo before the August 27th radio show on Aces Radio Live? No! It means more than ever, I want to get to the bottom of the Phil Piccolo issue.

If Piccolo is a true scammer, who has been running a multi-decade organized series of MLM ponzi schemes, then we will find out, and we’ll expose him, even it I do like the guy.

On the other hand, if we can’t find any valid documented public record that he has been more than the most unlucky MLM UnProfessional person in history, then I’ll continue to nurture this new friendship.

This whole situation reminds me of a comment MLM Kevin Thompson said to me once “Troy you can’t judge the attorney by their clients. Not all clients follow their attorneys advice.”

Well, I have given advice to George Madiou and Phil Piccolo aka Warren Anthony, and if they do not take it, then DNA may not last long term. However, if they continue to add other products and services and get out of the data collecting business, then who knows.

It’s sad when you think about it. Some folks want to find fault in Piccolo and Madiou, even me for that matter. But they do not have an problems with an organized group of people raiding and raping several MLM field organizations.

George Madiou is Officially the New CEO of DNA aka Data Network Affiliates

George Madiou – founder of the Network Marketing Magazine, talked to MLM Help Desk for close to two hours today, and officially verified he is the new CEO of DNA aka Data Network Affiliates.

George and I go way back, and as I stated over the weekend, I was not going to voice my opinion until I had talked to him personally. Well here is the conversation in a nutshell.

1. I still have the same concerns as I have had since day one of the legality of using an MLM compensation structure to pay distributors for collecting license plate data.

2. I believe without proper training the distributors who collect this data are leaving themselves and the company open for huge litigation.

3. I respect George Madiou and believe he cares about the distributors he serves.

As I have said in the past only a court can decide about the legality of any company, so time will tell.

Phil Piccolo Calls and Threatens to File Lawsuit Against MLM Help Desk and Troy Dooly

Phil Piccolo calls and threatens to file a lawsuit against MLM Help Desk and Troy Dooly. Yep, you heard me right, and it all steams from my last post titled – Data Network Affiliates and Narc technologies May be Lying to Their Distributors.

See in the video, I stated “it’s been purported Phil Piccolo has signed an agreement with FTC – NOT to be be associated in MLM ever again.” Well, that seems to have been the catalyst for Phil Piccolo.

So Piccolo called his MLM Attorney Mr. D. Jack Smith and Jack told him “Make an example of Troy Dooly.” Which I truly find funny, because lord knows Rod Cook the MLM Watchdog has said far worse things than I have ever said or written about Phil Piccolo. But hey, I’m the new kid on the block.

Anyway, after over two hours on the phone with Phil Piccolo, which by the way, he was an enjoyable guy to talk with, I did come to the following conclusions…

1. Phil Piccolo, if he is not MLMs most notorious scammer, (which by the time I am done, I will know one way or another) has to be one of the most unlucky MLM professional in history.

2. Phil Piccolo has NEVER (according to Phil himself) signed or agreed to any form of agreement with the FTC to never be affiliated with MLM, Network Marketing, Direct Selling or any other term we want to give our great profession.

3. Phil Piccolo has at least one very well respected MLM Professional as a very close friend. This person is someone I respect, admire and have called on more than once for advice, either directly or through the training they provide.

4. Phil Piccolo understands I will not take anything off of MLM help Desk, but I will continue to write blog posts, and shoot videos sharing the facts as they become available.

What I want from every person who reads this blog post, is for you to write a comment covering one of the following…

1. If Phil Piccolo has helped you, your team or your family in any way, I want you to write a comment below and let us know.

2. If Phil Piccolo has harmed you, your team, or your family in any way, I want you to write a comment below and let us know.

Then on August 27th, 2010 on Aces Radio Live Jim Gillhouse and myself will interview Phil Piccolo live in over 100 counties around the globe and we will be using these comments to formulate the questions we ask Phil.

Well, let’s get to the true and stop just relying on the rumors flying around.


By the way, if you are wondering if Phil Piccolo is part of Data Network Affiliates or Automatic Geek, then you will want to watch the blog for some upcoming posts.
