MLM Wireless News: PHPI Has Hired Vegas Based Law Firm To Answer The Global Verge Complaint

Hey I want to get a little update out on the MLM Wireless Niche, especially an update on People Helping People, Inc. aka PHPI and the legal action involving Global Verge.

Last week I shot a video and wrote an article stating… At that time PHPI nor Derrick Rodgers had, in my opinion hired any world class law firm. I based my opinion on the fact a world class law firm would not allow their client to put out any type of marketing email statement, or any statement as far as that goes, which could hurt their case in court.

Well it has come to my attention that the law firm Throndal, Armstrong, Delk, Balkenbush & Eisinger of Las Vegas has been retained by Derrick Rodgers to represent People Helping People, Inc, and I must assume Derrick personally against the civil complaint filed by Global Verge.

As more becomes available form both sides through the court we will get it up so all distributors can be kept up to date on this pending issue.

In other areas of the MLM Wireless niche…

Chris Greco has parted ways with Global Pros, and joined Kevin Sipe to launch TechSoft Mobile. Now from our understanding, and we are still digging into all the facts, Chris is an independent contractor as of this writing, but could very well become an officer in the company, and may hold equity through one of his companies. Agian, this is not completely clear, as we are still searching for the official documentation that TechSoft Mobile is a legit entity and not a sole proprietor.

Ron Williams CEO of Global Pros, reached out this week, and due to pending projects, I have not had a chance to get with him to see how things are coming along with their launch. I plan on connecting with Ron nest week.

Panther Mobile (Harry Aston’s) company is still working through all the refund requests, as he and his team relaunch the company after the split from Kevin Sipe.

I have received some concerns from former and current distributors of Zoom Mobile, which has delayed the second article in the series. I am drafting an email with questions to George Burton, through his attorney Matthew Foreman.

Excel Wireless has launched and seems to be the only MLM Wireless company offering 100% free signup. Not sure how much overhead they have, but based on their compensation plan payouts, I hope they are running a very financially tight business.

Lightyear Network Solutions, bought their first telecommunication company since going public. We predicted that Sherm Henderson would start to buy smaller companies back in February when he took his company public. Keep an eye on this company, because I have a feeling Sherman Henderson is starting to put together a run to become the next billion dollar telecommunication company.

If you have news pass it out way.

MLM Wireless News: PHPI CEO Derrick Rodgers Responds To Some Of The Global Verge Lawsuit

My hat is off to Derrick Rodgers for responding at all. However, I think in the long run it would have been better if he had responded through the “Best of the Best law firms” he states People Helping People Inc, have hired.

Seriously, it is a good thing for Derrick and PHPI to address this issue. However, I have to question several items in Derrick’s response.

1. Derrick states PHPI has hired the best of the best legal firms to handle this and other legal issues at People Helping People. Well, having invested several of my adult years dealing with litigation attorney’s both as a client and a respondent in cases, I have yet to find one, who did not tell their client to keep their mouth shut, and let the attorney do the talking.

In several of the current cases and potential cases surrounding the MLM Wireless Niche, we have been contacted by the clients litigation attorneys to respond to both articles I have written and other concerns which have been brought up by other reporters, Watchdogs and Advocates.

There are a couple of reasons why litigation attorneys do the talking for their clients.

1. Nothing said by the attorney can be used be used against their client.

2. Litigation attorneys want to get their side of the issue out for the public to fully understand, without the emotional attachment, their clients have to the situation.

Derrick, makes several “personal” statements which can be used by Global Verge in this case. And if Derrick denies he said them, then Global Verge’s attorney will bring up Derrick’s response as evidence. Which leaves Derrick in an awkward position. He will either have to deny he wrote the email below under oath, or he will have to defend his response. Either way what he has stated may be used against him, especially, if Global Verge has a witness who while in the company of Derrick Rodgers heard him say anything about Global Verge.

Which brings up an interesting thought. In my last couple of posts, we say that Derrick was asked about the Global Verge lawsuit. Specifically what had been written in this community, and he “asked that his responses NOT be made part of the minutes.”

Which means, even if he did not use the words “Global Verge” he still addressed part of the Global Verge lawsuit.

Maybe the PHPI distributors can get him to address the following parts of the lawsuit which he did not address:

1. Third Claim For Relief: Misappropriation

2. Fourth Claim For Relief: Conversion

3. Fifth Claim For Relief: Tortuous Interferences with Contractual Relations

4. Six Claim For Relief: Tortuous Interference With Prospective Economic Gain

5. Seventh Claim For Relief: Civil Conspiracy/Concert Of Action

6. Eight Claim For Relief: Unfair Competition/Unjust Enrichment

7. Ninth Claim For Relief: Injunctive Relief

8. Tenth Claim For Relief:

Well, hopefully, PHPI attorneys will soon contact us on behalf of their client and give us their side of things. Maybe we will be able to get copies of the counter-suit Derrick and PHPI may file. Or copies of a settlement offer. Either way, we will post what we are given.

MLM Wireless News: Derrick Rodgers CEO of People Helping People States Troy Dooly and MLM Watchdogs Have Paid Agenda Against Him and PHPI

Yesterday, I wrote an article on how PHPI Corporate leaders Derrick Rodgers and Rick Presley met with some of their top field leaders to discus concerns by the field. During this meeting, a specific question was asked of CEO Derrick Rodgers regarding the pending litigation filed by Global Verge. He asked that his responses be kept off the record. I gave Mr. Rodgers the benefit of the doubt. But… Maybe there was another reason.

To pretend or lie, (depending on how you look at it) and make it seem like everything is someone elses fault, or just a minor issue is flatout wrong.

In this recording top People Helping People Inc, leaders Rock Roundtree and Curtis Miller referring to what Derrick Rodgers told them in the PHPI Leadership meeting held at the corporate offices on June 16, 2010. I reported on this meeting yesterday and overall praised the corporate position on meeting and communicating with their field leaders.

During the meeting the following issues was brought up:

Presented by Kelly Melby – Negative Information on the Internet State of the union address concerning Global Verge accusations. What proactive steps are we taking? Have you [Derrick] or will you contact Troy Dooly to give your side? Can we file a counter-suite for this being a “frivolous suit?”

Response: Derrick explained his position, thoroughly, and received a positive response from the attendees. He requested that his response was not recorded in the Minutes.”

Well, here is what Derrick Rodgers had to say according to Rick Roundtree and Curtis Miller:

For those whom want to listen to the full call to make sure we did not take anything out of context here is the complete conference call.

This brings up some questions I think ALL distributors should be asking. The same questions some of you asked of Global Verge just a few months ago.

1. What was autoship charged in may, yet product was not delivered?

2. Why is June’s autoship getting charged before product is delivered?

3. Is the company really financially stable? If so why are they charging autoship with no product being delivered in the month it was charged?

4. Why is Derrick Rodgers hiding from the Process Servers?

5. Who else in the corporate offices of People Helping People Inc., is on the list to be served?

6. Who is the litigation attorney handling this issue?

7. Who is the MLM consultant or MLM Attorney that created the policies, procedures and compensation plan?

8. Who are the equity partners of People Helping People? Are they also targets of Global Verge civil suits?

9. If the Global Verge is “frivolousness” then why hasn’t Derrick Rodgers and PHPI officially hired an attorney to be served on their behalf, and answered the complaint, or at least filed a counter civil complaint to protect their distributors?

Distributors who are betting their financial future on People Helping People, deserve to know the answers to these questions, so they can make informed decisions on calculating the risks involved in continuing with People Helping People.

I challenge Derrick Rodgers and the equity partners of People Helping People to have their legal team to contact me and set the record straight.

For those who have not read the official complaint filed in Clark County District Court, here it is.

MLM Wireless News: Derrick Rodgers and Rick Presley of PHPI aka People Helping People Inc Listen To Their Field Leaders

Well over the last few weeks we have seen litigation launched between Global Verge and People Helping People, Inc. And to date neither Derrick Rodgers nor Rick Presley the corporate leaders of PHPI have reached out personally or through their legal counsel to give us any type of official response. However, over the weekend several of their field leaders have reached out to give us some inside info…

Over 30 leaders from corporate and the field were at the meeting held on June 16, 2010. This meeting may completely set the stage for the future of this company based on the fact Rodgers and Presley, were willing to sit down with those MLM Pros, who are in the trenches daily doing their best to spread the message of People Helping People.

Now, I have no clue where all the litigation will end up, and I am still very concerned for distributors from all of the companies. However, if the corporate officers and equity partners are willing to keep their field force happy, and the two-way communication flowing, then maybe, just maybe the legal teams from both companies can hash out all the differences and get on down the road.

If, not, then it will still be a bumpy ride.

Here are a few of the high points from the PHPI meeting last week.

Global Verge Files Civil Complaints Against Derrick Rodgers, People Helping People And Others

Global Verge’s legal team is not basting in their recent win against Zer01 and Ben Piilani. On June 8th, 2010 their filed a civil complaint against People Helping People Inc (PHPI), CEO Derrick Rodgers and several unnamed corporations and individuals.

Now, in reviewing the below civil complaint, I saw an interesting charge. Global Verge has charged conspiracy by several individuals and/or entities.

Makes me wonder how many of the current owners, equity partners, founding distributors, officers, and former e-associates who are now master distributors at PHPI will also be included in this complaint?

Here are a few other questions:

1. What happens to People Helping People, Inc., if Global Verge wins the injunction?

2. Has Frank Veron, Rick Presley, Bud Nemeth and others already received their Cease and Desist letters? Have they responded, or blown off responding like Derrick Rodgers seems to have blown off his response?

3. What happens to the distributors of PHPI, if Global Verge wins this civil complaint?

This is sure the craziest turn of events I have seen since the old A.L. Williams days when you just never knew what was going to happen.
