Rod Cook the MLM Watchdog Calls Out Banners Broker As Ponzi Backs Up His Claim With Insider Info Updated December 7th 2012

Rod Cook, the MLM Watchdog called out Banners Broker today as… a sophisticated, complicated, and well disguised Zeek Rewards caliber company that feeds entirely off new recruits and new money. Updated December 20th, 2012

Update December 20th, 2012 Banners Broker Scam Update

Udated December 7th, 2012: Banner Brokers on their Facebook page today decided to propagate a bold face lie. They stated I (Troy Dooly) had contacted them asking for $15K to $20 (they did not say how there was a $5K difference) to take this post down. Below is the response I posted on their page.

Updated December 7th, 2012: Finch Sells – Banners Broker Scam – Don;t Let It Affect You

Updated December 5th, 2012: Ted Nuyten, founder of Business For Home has just released a new Banners Broker Review. (Click Here to Read!)

Now those are some very bold words, but some many of us have been stating for months.

You can also review a thread at Real Scam where folks on both sides are debating Banns Broker.

Months ago, I mentioned the fact our team could not locate where Banners Broker, located in Canada had filed any of the necessary paperwork to be seen as a legit direct selling company. In other words a company who can pay independent affiliates through a multi-level compensation structure.

Rod Cook aka MLM Watchdog in part backs up his claims through insider info, part of which comes from a blog called “Do Nothing Money

It appears to be a sophisticated, complicated, and well disguised Zeek Rewards caliber company that feeds entirely off new recruits and new money. It appears as though you are buying banner advertising and sharing in the click revenue, etc . . . but in reality, it is one of the most sophisticated ponzi scams on the Internet. Their website is Editors Note: I have spyders on that site and if you sign up I WILL BREAK YOUR FINGERS! Continued here is a critical website> BEWARE >There are other scams on it with a jillion affiliate grabs! It gives some insights as to how the Banner Brokers scam works to steal participant’s money in this Ponzi that may beat out Zeek Rewards: Banners Brokers scam warning. < Beware of this website too!

I have included the complete article at the bottom of this editorial to show where the MLM Watchdog got some of his info. If as this author of the article states

In this post you will read my personal experience with Banners Brokers and everything written here is completely true.

then as I have stated in the past, Banners Broker is a ponzi and folks investing in it, should realize that they could find themselves in the same place as former Zeek Rewards Affiliates do today. I now it should be noted that the following article seems to have been written back in the Spring and Summer of 2012, so some of the info Rod Cook reviewed may have changed…

One more thing to contemplate… Many of the issues written about in the following article were also issues brought up over the last year by former affiliates of Zeek Rewards.

Banners Broker SCAM Warning It’s Better To Be Safe Than Sorry

Banners Broker can be GONE Today as it can take another Year but what you really need to know is that they are operating an Illegal Ponzi Scheme, with no Product instead of a real advertising company as they claim. We all have seem dozens, hundreds of ponzi schemes but the ones like Banners Broker and ZeekRewards that disguise themselves as real companies are the ones that truly end up hurting the biggest amount of people. So if you are a Banners Broker member and your investment is being doubled every few months by doing nothing, keep in mind that, that is the ponzi that is taking place and no real secret, hidden advertising platform on unknown websites.

7/13/2012 – Major Update : The owner of Banners Broker Kul Josun, has been Fired. How can you fire the person that owns the program? Now they claim that he wasn’t the owner and all of a sudden Banners Broker is left with a Faceless owner ( Chris Smith ). Looks like an exit strategy to me, once this goes belly up, no one will know where to point their fingers to.


Things are worst than what I thought and Banners Broker is Doing It Wrong. They have since forever been having Payment issues which is the most important aspect of a program as everyone joins to get paid.

As I reported in the back dozens of times their Advertising doesn’t really exist, it simply doesn’t work and if consider it to be working, what you get for the price would be far less compared to what you get everywhere else.

This post is a warning and contains suggestions on what you should do to be safe with Banners Broker as they are starting to Rip-Off lots of members and that is primarily due to the Money Issue as my upliner confirmed they had.

Click on next page below to read detailed information on each of these issues and what is going on with Banners Brokers, my experience and what is happening to others.

On the next page you can find “What Is Really Happening” and in the last page the “Solution”….

What Is Happening!

Banners Brokers is locking members accounts, they can say the reason for this are various like I will explain below but in the end it doesn’t make sense. Reach your own conclusion.

Banners Brokers started as a Straight Line Cycler / Doubler and even the cheap banners they had in their backoffice made with a Free program suggested that. Some of the top members in the program came up with a “Strategy”, to earn Unlimited Income with Banners Brokers and Double your money without referring others.

Everyone joined Banners Brokers as a Passive Income program and they were more than happy to let people know that. The strategy was based on the same person registering multiple accounts, they always neglected the fact that members were creating multiple accounts but as they moved to BBv2.0 they made an option called something like “Almagate”. The goal of this option was to Merge all of your accounts together.

So there goes the first trick. They claim people can’t have multiple accounts but they made an option so people can merge their tens, hundreds and some even thousands of accounts.

They grew bigger and bigger and decided to get rid of the Doublers Term, the Passive Income, The Cycler and claim they were an advertising company. To do this they had to clean their image and remove all of the advertising on the internet that has anything to do with that.

In their new terms everyone had to remove all of their advertising that contains such words or their account would be locked.

In the meantime they were always having problems with :

Paying Members on time – Payments have always been late, some for over 10, 20 and even 40 days. Whenever you asked support about it, they basically told you to ‘f*** off and wait’.

The Advertising Platform is a fake – Everyone knows this as I never recommended their product. When you buy Advertising Package you don’t get any advertising at all, I received around 60,000 Banners Views in 1 year (12 large months), which I normally get in 1-3 DAYS using other real advertising companies, so here instead of 3 days I am waiting 365 days to reach the same results.

Server Problems, Website Problems, Support Problems, You name it.

Keep reading and learn how and why they LOCKED my account forever.

Account Locked (All Commissions Stolen)

First this is not the same time this happens to me. I am a very hard working member and in the past companies changed their policies and terms and you ended up having lots of ads that were “Outdated“, not that I was promoting in the wrong way, just that the Ads are no longer valid so it collides with their new ‘image‘.

My account at Banners Brokers is Locked and Admin keeps all the commissions because I have some Advertising that is outdated. In order for me to unlock my account I had to remove this content and contact them once that happens.

They locked my account about 4 times in Total and each and every-time I removed the outdated information. The ‘Ads‘ were forum posts and all of them were not meant for advertising instead discussion and once requested all these posts were removed, each time they unlocked my account successfully, without problems or complaints.

Now the question is really simple. Why would they not unlock my account now? Even after the term they don’t endorse are now gone.

They don’t accept certain claims, words or terms used on Advertising and I wasn’t doing that, the forum posts were not something that I was doing now instead years old post. If I were to go out now and promote as passive income using all sort of methods then I understand but that isn’t the case.

When it happened to me alone, I wasn’t that surprised and it was OK, but then I learned of other members getting their accounts locked and all funds stolen, so this made me think the obvious based on past experience and that is that the company is looking to safe money in whatever way possible. All these accounts are from “Active” members that promote to others and grow their business. Another similarity in these account is the fact that they are all in profit, no money goes in only out, bottom line a burden to the program. These accounts are all locked now.

They never reply to the support tickets nor give an explanation why these accounts are locked. They clearly state in my case “Remove / Edit content to reinstate your account“, after that step is done they simply stop replying to you.

I’ve seen this another 4 times in the past and all the companies that resorted to this same measure, all DIED.

I am not saying that Banners Brokers will go broke tomorrow but it might happen soon. My upliner confirmed that they were having money problems and that is the logic reason why payments take from 30 to 50 days (sometimes) to be processed while their official pending time is a maximum of 10 days.

How to be safe and be a winner


The trick is simple. So far Banners Brokers has been good to me and I earned a nice sum of money coming out of very, very small investment (one of the reasons why they locked my account) and the most important My Referrals (Team Members) are doing well.

What you should do is the following in order to be safe and avoid loosing any money with them.

If you are in profit – Then great, you need to do nothing. Just withdraw whatever amount you feel comfortable with and play with the rest. Do Not Re-invest or Invest any large sums of money.
Don’t be greedy. Keep your earnings and just play with the profit.
If you are not in profit – Take your money out FAST. Great your initial investment out, double your panels and hit withdraw, once you break even you can keep on playing with whatever you have left, you will be glad you did this.
If you are not yet a member – Don’t join Banners Brokers, the risk is too high. I admit that the company can last another year or even more but they can also be gone tomorrow or they can aswell choose to Lock your account and keep the money.

Bottom Line

Play it safe and take your initial investment out. WITHDRAW NOW and then play with the profit.

Think of it this way. YOU DON’T LOOSE ANYTHING BY WITHDRAWING, it is actually the other way around, as soon as you WITHDRAW you are winning.

I had a nice ride with Banners Brokers but they ‘scammed’
After a long year working to build and grow their business, give them exposure they reply back with no excuse and nothing more than all commissions, contacts and work Stolen / Gone.

For that reason I don’t recommend Banners Brokers to YOU or Anyone because this is not how you treat your hard working Members / Affiliates.

If you don’t agree with me I respect that but you might as well want to respect my point of view if you don’t’ agree with it.

Comments are welcome from all sides. I have over 260 Direct Referrals there and thousands of members down the line.

Quick Update

Right after making this post public about Banners Brokers and the way they treated me and other members I was finally offered help by one of my top uplines to restore my account.

Only after I made this post, at the beginning he just told me to send an email to support and basically to get lost.

As you can clearly see I rejected that offer because I thought it would be more important to put this information out there. My account was already making several hundreds dollars minimum, every month but giving you this info is more important to me.

Someone mentioned in the forum the Banners Brokers Payout Stats.

Yes they claim they paid over $100,000,000usd but as you might know already these stats are fake, here is my comment on this issue.

By strosdegoz on the MMG forum.

The payout stats calculate all the cycles, earnings and commissions that are automatically reinvested into the program and not the money going into members pocket.

So if you put in $20usd and it doubles to $40, you will have only $20 available for withdrawals minus all the fees but in the Payout stats you would see $40usd.

Now if you choose to reinvest the $20 over and over over the Payout stats would still keep on increasing by $40 each time your panel doubles even if you never withdraw.

So if at some point you decided to withdraw $4,000 the payout stats from your efforts alone can be over $10,000

They know this and this might be one of the reasons why they are removing it now.

Also because the stats are fake.

Another thing is their “Corporate Office”. Their address DOESN’T EXIST AT ALL.

Make your own choice. You can join Banners Brokers and profit from it, but don’t take it as a real business with unlimited income streams.

WITHDRAW everything you can NOW and play with your profit.

Refund Policy

Banners Brokers has a refund policy. You can take advantage of that if you are one of those asking how to get out.

It has been reported over and over that Banners Broker do not honor their refund policy. It is an impossible procedure and most of the time you will end up not getting the money back, something to think about.

Banners Broker International (referred to as Banners Broker hereafter) offers a thirty-day money back guarantee on our products. Upon cancellation of your purchase, you will be entitled to a refund provided the cancellation occurs within thirty days of your purchase. There will be no exceptions for refund under any other circumstance.

Banners Broker Twitter & Blog

After I wrote this post, Banners Broker fans and management claims that I made this all up. They claim that my background story of the company when they started claiming they were a straight cycler / doubler is also fake.

All the old members in BB knows that this is TRUE but they can’t say anything or their accounts will get locked, banned and all commissions forfeited. I didn’t want to draw more attention into this post and that’s why I don’t bump it to the top but to defend my story, here are some facts, proof and screen shots.

Here you will be able to see Banners Broker Official Twitter account and their tweets from a year or so ago.

You can also see Their Own illegal Income Claims on their blog and tweets.

… They literally locked my account for having outdated information such as the info that you will see below coming from their own accounts …

Note : The chances are that by the time you see this they will remove both the blog posts and tweets, so I took screen shots because I don’t’ want to be called a liar just for sharing my story. This is intended to proof my story and not anything else.

Zeek Rewards News: MLM Watchdog Rod Cook Provides Relief Information To Zeek Rewards Affiliates

Rod Cook MLM Watchdog

Rod Cook ur Ed. – At last some relief for innocent folks that fell into the ZEEK REWARDS Ponzi scheme and were burned bad! As we say MLM is good they sell good products or services- Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are not related because they don’t. For those who have not been able to tell the difference here is some help thank God!
Thank you Madoff your big Ponzi is actually helping some little folks!

Rod Cook MLM Watchdog

UR Ed. Rod Cook – Full Disclaimer check out this information with your local IRS office! And have your tax preparation expert double check it in IRS bulletins. I was told by local office yes it was still in effect but, I don’t trust the IRS!

Also the SEC by shutting down Zeek Rewards has give you clear proof that your money was stolen by a Ponzi Scheme!

READ THIS CAREFULLY THE IRS DOCUMENTS ARE CONFUSING! Some of the questions which were answered by this ruling applying to Pyramid and Ponzi loses are:

1.) Is a loss from criminal fraud or embezzlement in a transaction entered into for profit a theft loss or a capital loss under 165 of the Internal Revenue Code,

2) Is such as loss subject to either the personal loss limits in 165(h) or the limits on itemized deductions in t67 and 68?

3.) In what year is such a loss deductible?

4.) how is the amount of such a loss determined and finally

5.) Can such a loss create or increase a net operating loss under 172?

Because of what happened involving the “Madoff” scheme, the Internal Revenue Service has taken a new approach to how to handle any future situations. They have released a set of rules online which are as follows according to the article (link below). The revenue ruling sets forth the formal legal position of the IRS and Treasury Department:

•The investor is entitled to a theft loss, which is not a capital loss. In other words, a theft loss from a Ponzi-type investment scheme is not subject to the normal limits on losses from investments, which typically limit the loss deduction to $3,000 per year when it exceeds capital gains from investments.

•The revenue ruling clarifies that “investment” theft losses are not subject to limitations that are applicable to “personal” casualty and theft losses. The loss is deductible as an itemized deduction, but is not subject to the 10 percent of AGI reduction or the $100 reduction that applies to many casualty and theft loss deductions.
UR MLM Watchdog Editor Rod Cook: This is really good! Check it out!

•The theft loss is deductible in the year the fraud is discovered, except to the extent there is a claim with a reasonable prospect of recovery. Determining the year of discovery and applying the “reasonable prospect of recovery” test to any particular theft is highly fact-intensive and can be the source of controversy. The revenue procedure accompanying this revenue ruling provides a safe-harbor approach that the IRS will accept for reporting Ponzi-type theft losses.
UR MLM Watchdog Editor Rod Cook: The SEC Receiver’s information is going to make proving this part fairly easy.

•The amount of the theft loss includes the investor’s unrecovered investment – including income as reported in past years. The ruling concludes that the investor generally can claim a theft loss deduction not only for the net amount invested, but also for the so-called “fictitious income” that the promoter of the scheme credited to the investor’s account and on which the investor reported as income on his or her tax returns for years prior to discovery of the theft.

Some taxpayers have argued that they should be permitted to amend tax returns for years prior to the discovery of the theft to exclude the phantom income and receive a refund of tax in those years. The revenue ruling does not address this argument, and the safe-harbor revenue procedure is conditioned on taxpayers not amending prior year returns.

•A theft loss deduction that creates a net operating loss for the taxpayer can be carried back and forward according to the time frames prescribed by law to generate a refund of taxes paid in other taxable years. UR MLM Watchdog Editor Rod Cook: This is really great! But as I said in the disclaimer up front check every big of this IRS information out!~


Y EL MLMwatchdog! (El guardian del multinivel

Esto es bueno para las victimas de esquemas Ponzi o esquemas piramidales.
Rod Cook su Editor. – Por lo menos hay algunos alívios para la gente inocente que cayó victima de la pirámide de ZEEK REWARDS y perdieron su dinero. Como siempre decimos: Multinivel es bueno, vende buenos productos y servicios-Los esquemas piramidales o ponzi no son buenos y no se relacionan con multiniviel porque no venden buenos productos y/o servicios. Para aquellos que no han podido diferenciar aqui les traemos ayuda. Gracias a Dios!
Gracias a Madoff (creador hace varios años de una pirámide ponzi de inversión en la que mucha gente perdió muchos millones de dolares y ya esta en carcel federal para siempre) pero su pirámide ahora nos ayuda porque a raiz de eso se ha creado la forma de aliviar las perdidas de las victimas.

Su editor Rod Cook – Desgloso completo: Revise esta información con su oficina local del servicio de rentas internas ( IRS ) y su contador o persona que prepara sus impuestos para que ellos revisen este boletin. La oficina local nuestra del IRS nos dijo que aun estaba en efecto pero yo no confio completamente en el IRS.
Tambien el hecho de que la SEC (Comisión de intercambio de seguridades o inversiones) cerró a Zeek Rewards le da a usted una prueba clara de que su dinero le fue robado por una pirámide o esquema ponzi que is a ilegal.


Algunas de las interrogantes que fueron contestadas por esta regla y que aplican a las perdidas por pirámides y esquémas ponzi son:

1.) Es la perdida por fraude criminal o desfalco en una transacción en la que participó con fines de lucro, una perdedida de robo o robo de capital bajo el articulo 165 del código del IRS?

2) Es esta perdida sujeta a los limites de perdida personal dentro de el articulo165 (h) o los limites de dedecciones detalladas en los articulos t67 y 68?

3.) En que año es tal perdida deducible?

4.) Como se determina el monto de tal perdida? Y finalmente

5.)Puede esta perdida crear o incrementar una perdida neta en operaciones bajo el articulo 172 del código del IRS?

Debido a lo que sucedió con la pirámide Madoff, el servicio de rentas internas ha tomado una forma diferente para tratar con situaciones futuras. Ellos han implementado unos reglamentos y lo anuncian en linea que son los siguientes de acuerdo al articulo (accesible con el enlace caliente de más abajo) Los reglamentos establecen en lo adelante la posición formal legal del IRS y el departamento del tesoro:

• El inversionista esta autorizado a declarar una perdida de ingresos la cual no es perdida capital o de capital. En otras palabras, un robo sufrido en un esquema de pirámide o ponzi no esta sujeto a los limites normales de declaración de perdida de $3,000 dolares al año que excedan los limites de ganancias de capital

• Los reglamentos del servicio clarifican que perdidas por robo en “inversiones”no estan sujetas a las limitaciones que se aplican por perdidas “personales” debio a perdida por robo o accidentes. La perdida es deducible como deducción detallada pero no esta sujeta a la reducción de 10% del AGI (Ingreso bruto ajustado) o la deducción de $100 dolares que se aplica a las deducciones de muchas perdidas accidentales y perdidas por robo

Su editor guardian del multinivel Rod Cook: Esto es a muy bueno! Reviselo
• La deducción de la perdida es deducible el mismo año en que el fraude fue descubierto, excepto y hasta lo extenso de si hay un reclamo con expectativas rasonables de recuperar la perdida. La prueba para determinar el año del descubrimiento y aplicar la regla de la esperanza rasonable de recuperar es bastante extensiva y puede ser raiz de controversia. Pero la regla del servicio de rentas internas provee un proceso de “manera segura” para que el IRS accepte las perdidas reportadas en un esquema piramidal.

Su editor MLM Watchdog Rod Cook: La información del recibidor de la SEC va a hacer que sea francamente fácil proveer esta información (la SEC ha creado una oficina y un sitio de internet del recibidor para el caso de Zeek Rewards)
• El monto del robo incluye las inversiones no recuperadas e ingresos reportados en años anteriores. Esta regla concluye que el inversionista puede generalmente reclamar una perdida por robo no solo de el monto neto invertido sino también de el llamado “ingreso ficiticio” que el el ingreso que los promotores de la pirámide acreditaron a las cuentas del inversionista y el cual el inversionista haya reportado como ingreso en los años anteriores a descubrirse el robo.

Algunos contribuyentes argumentan que deben ser permitidos a enmendar sus reportes de ingresos de los años anteriores al descubrimiento del robo para que excluya el ingreso fantasma y que puedan recibir un reembolso de impuestos en esos años anteriores. El reglamento del servicio no trata ese argumento y el proceso de “forma segura” del IRS esta condicionado a que los contribuyentes no hagan enmiendas a sus declaraciones de impuestos en años anteriores.

• Una deducción de perdida por robo que crea una perdida neta en operaciones se puede tomar antes o después de acuerdo al marco de tiempo prescripto por la ley para generar un reembolso de impuestos pagados en otros años reportados. Su editor MLM Watchdog Rod Cook: Esto es realmente grandioso pero, como dije anteriormente en el desgloso completo, revise cada punto de esta información del IRS con su oficina local del IRS on su experto en impuestos.


Breaking MLM News: MLM Top Female Influencer and Mrs. MLM Watchdog Marcie Cook To Be Featured On NBC TV

MLM Watchdog Rod Cook just realeased the following MLM update: NBC DOING A NATIONAL EXPOSE ON HOT AIR BALLON DEATHS

So they came to the world’s leading expert on tracking and exposing the dangers of hot air balloons. Marcie was electrocued 10 years ago when a hot air ballon she was in crashed into high voltage power lines. She has been harrassing politicians and the FAA to tighten up rules on hot air ballon accidents.


1. Any personal injury lawyer will tell the you the silly waiver of injury that you sign before your hot air balloon ride is worthless — if the “balloon driver” (I won’t dignify them with the word pilot) screws up your ride and hurts you. Their insurance companies have them make you sign the waiver (if they have one) to fake you out of suing if you are hurt!

2. MAKE SURE THEY HAVE INSURANCE! Demand to see the hot air balloon operators Insurance liability policy before you get in the hot air balloon basket. It’s very simple! No insurance policy, get your money back. Better yet BEFORE YOU PAY demand to see their current liability insurance “binder.”

3. Why all of this? Did you know a helicopter evacuation costs at least $7000 plus fuel? What is the value of having a hole in the back of your eye? What about paying for the vacuum pump that goes on the big hole in your leg to try to get it to heal? Hospitalization in a burn unit = cost? Your loss of being able to work?

Breaking MLM News: Troy Dooly publicly apologizes to Rod Cook aka MLM Watchdog and Len Clements

Tonight I received an email from Rod Cook, someone who I call a friend and personal mentor, which I have edited and listed below.

In Rod’s email it is very clear he has received several phone calls from folks telling him I have slammed him in some form or another. He also alludes to the fact he has talked to Len Clements who also feels something I have said was disrespectful.

I am making it clear right now I do not have anything but the utmost respect for these two MLM leaders.

Rod Cook Len Clements

Rod Cook and Len Clements are true advocates to this profession, and two gentlemen I respect and learn from. As a matter of fact they may have forgotten more about this great profession that I will ever know.

Rod and Len I am truly sorry for whatever I said, and if you will direct me to where it is posted, I will gladly removed it. It was not, nor is it today my intention to have anyone think of you two as anything but men of uncompromising integrity.

Here is the edited email Rod sent to me.


Words I have said to you…. More than once WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP YOU…to make more money… Now I find out that you think I am another MLM Flake… thanks… You illiterate (edited by Troy) jarhead

NOT BECAUSE I ABSOLUTELY NEEDED YOU…. Just to give me breathing space…. And you have seen PART of my grueling 3 days out of the 44…days total…. So now I get bit in the Ass.

So I get upteen calls Troy Dooly just bashed ROD COOK to the world…. Len is not happy either…. If you were a scumbag like Dr. John Taylor….. There would be a counter attack to no end…

It takes money to fight for good in this world…. But there is only one goal…. Contribute to the good of people that want to work.

So thanks… I am so happy that I know you are in the camp with the Anti-MLMers – Taylor, Fitzpatrick,

He will continue to be on total bedrest for 10-12 days and take his antibiotic orally vs via IV. Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and caring. Marcie

The MLM Watchdog Rod Cook (Chairman of the Distributors Right’s Association) was taken to the Emergency Room for Chest Pains by his wife and best friend Marcie Cook.

Marcie, is by Rod’s side right now, and will keep us posted throughout the day. In the mean time let’s set aside any differences we might have in MLM ideology and as Network Marketing family members who love Network Marketing, let’s lift up some prayers for Rod and Marcie.

What would be great, is if everyone who reads this post will send me at email or better yet, leave a comment here on the page so Rod & Marcie can read them.

Rod & Miss Marcie I love you both and we are all praying.

Never Give UP,
