Zeek Rewards Update: More Bold Face Lies Coming From Top Leaders At zBizTeam aka Fun Club USA Why?

Truth & Justice

Coming off the heals of one of the most talked about Zeek Rewards Updates, the Google Hangout hosted by Kevin Thompson, Phillip Young, Jordan Maglich and Walt Burton, I received an email where yet another of the top level insiders at zBizTeam and Fun Club USA, David Kettner published some bold face lies to the members of the legal defense fund… WHY?

Before we get into the email David Kettner sent out, you may want to watch the Zeek Rewards Google Hangout from last night to get a reference point from attorneys representing both “net losers” and “net winners”, along with Jason Maglich, who doesn;t have skin in this game on either side.

Below is the email David sent out…

Hey Team,

I have some Zeek updates that I wanted to share with you to keep you in the loop of what is going on. I know there is a lot of bogus information that is popping up around the Internet and I want all of us to be informed with the truth.

Our lawyers have put together a motion that will be filed in court no later then next Wednesday in North Carolina. I have personally reviewed this motion and was very impressed with the points that it addresses. The motion that our lawyers are filing is that all funds that have been frozen in all the ewallets by Kenneth Bell the receiver be released. This motion will be using three NXPay examples of Zeek Rewards affiliates who had and still have their funds frozen in their account. Do know that this motion though is focused on releasing everyone’s funds that are illegally being held frozen and not just the three people’s accounts being used as examples.

The approach that our lawyers are taking in regards to the subpoenas that were sent out to over 1200 people is that no one will be sending any funds to Mr. Bell as he had no lawful right to request that this be done. All people who were sent the subpoenas have sent objection letters notifying Mr. Bell of this and the reasons why. Currently no one has any obligation to pay back any funds to the receiver and it is not believed that anyone would ever have to.

Our lawyers are using this motion that will be filed next week and in the future steps moving forward to educate the court and the receiver of the Zeek business model and how business was conducted and not how it has been portrayed by the allegations made against Rex Venture Group. We know that this process has been taking lots of time, but it is important that our lawyers are careful with the filings of motions while providing accurate and factual information for the court and the receiver.

As I get more information, I will be sure to share it with you. I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

God Bless,

Dave Kettner

Now I want to make it clear, that I am in no way stating David Kettner is where this Bold Face lie is coming from. For all I know he may just be a victim like so many others.

Ok let’s look at the lie from above.

In David’s email he states that NO ONE who received a Subpoena will be sending any money to the Receiver, and everyone is objecting. Well that is not true. If you listen to last nights call, and I can personally validate on a couple that Phillip young is representing some of the 1200 and they are cooperating with the Receiver.

I fully understand that when situations such as Zeek Rewards hit our lives, that people will take sides. But to pass bold face lies and false hopes to the very people who are already hurting is not just unethical, it is close to being criminal in my book. It is like stabbing them in the heart one more time.

As much as anyone I never wanted to believe that people I had grown to know would purposely mastermind a ponzi to rape people out of the hard earned money. And I am still not sure that was the intent. But the laws and the evidence was strong enough that the owner of Rex Venture Group, LLC did not object to the allegations or did he deny them. Instead Paul Burks consented to the allegations and paid a $4 million dollar fine.

Another issue that the members who are funding the Fun Club USA defense fund might want to ask is why the purported attorneys representing Robert Craddock, have NOT once taken the time to publicly address any of your fears and questions?

None of us know for sure how this will all turn out, but we do know some things, and we should ALL stop pretending on some of the issues, and find a way to help all parties “net losers” who need to find new homes with legit companies. And the “net winners” who truly will need some individual legal counsel to work through this mess.

But, the BOLD FACE LIES have to stop!

Living An Epic Adventure,

Zeek Rewards News: WARNING This Will Be Offensive, Founder Of ZTeamBiz aka Fun Club USA Spreading Bold Face Lies?

Truth & Justice

This morning I was sent a series of email threads purportedly from Robert Craddock, the founder of ZTeamBiz.com and Fun Club USA. What caused me concern was the fact the bold face lies were so easy to undercover and find the truth, that even a fifth grader could do it!


MLM Attorney Kevin Thompson
Now to the issue at hand. Below you will see a series of email threads that have taken place, where Robert Craddock the founder of Fun Club USA and ZTeamBiz.com purportedly makes slanderous, defamatory statements… well really if he truly wrote these statements, they are bold face lies about the MLM Attorney Kevin Thompson.

I will cover each real quick for those who don’t like to read.

1. He alludes to the fact Kevin Thompson holds a secret position in BidiFy as a distributor.Bold Face LIE! If Robert truly made the statement, then Robert provide the documented evidence that Kevin Thompson directly or indirectly holds a distributors position in BidiFy.

2. Kevin Thompson offered his a piece of the action to send former Zeek Rewards affiliates to his firm. – Bold Face LIE!

The true (you can read the full thread below.)

“I own www.ZteamBiz.com and along with being a Zeek Affiliate with over 2,000 people in my downline I also provided customers to affiliates for their Zeekler Penny auction. I noticed you represent Bidify and wanted to know if there was an opportunity to speak with you reguarding simular services I provided for Zeek but was unable to ramp up fully due to the closing. I was working closely with Greg Caldwell, and others at Zeek.

Robert Craddock”

3. Kevin Thompson is not a licensed attorney in the state of Tennessee, Robert Craddock checked.Bold face LIE!

Here are the facts:

Feel free to click on either image above and verify the information personally!!!

Now this raises a age old question… If someone will lie (and yes this is a purported lie, due to the fact I can’t provide the email headers from the original thread) about one issue, then what else will that person lie about.

Seth Godin is quoted as saying “All Marketers Are Liers”, and I have strongly disagreed with that statement. But, if it does hold a shred of truth for some folks in marketing, then God help us all!

The following is a response to an email I received.

Scott the attorneys are not going to contact Kevin Thompson, Kevin is working for Bidify if you did not know this. Troy does and this is kind of funny that Troy is also behind this.

When we started Zteambiz.net and com Kevin contacted me and wanted to get access to the database, he offered to pay me for the data and place people below me in the program so I would benefit financially, I told him he was a scum ball, and question if he really was an attorney, and my opinion stills stands. All I can say that I contacted the Tennessee Bar association and they did not have a record of him. Feel free to do the same.

Kevin is trying to get your information and a conference call will allow him to capture your information to pitch you on a different penny auction

I’m here to tell you the experts in this type of law all agree that Zeek did not sell any investment or security, it was not a Ponzi. Yes Kenneth Bell is calling it and that is why we have a legal process to go through. Please understand that Troy and Kevin have an agenda and, their past action do not appear to be to the benefit of this group.

Robert”

I wrote to Kevin Thompson asking for an official response to these allocations. I received the following information.

Craddock’s message is a complete lie. Read the thread below and call me ASAP. Craddock CONTACTED ME and I never, ever, ever offered to give him anything. I have never solicited ANYONE for Bidify. Ridiculous.

Don,

Thanks for sharing Craddock’s message. It’s a complete lie, start to finish. I never, not once, offered him ANYTHING. He called me asking for an introduction to Bidify. I declined, informed him that it was not my place. When he said he was an internet marketer, I told him he should help promote the Zeek Recovery site to get the word out there. He sent me the below email basically asking “what’s in it for me?” Read my response. I never offered him a single thing. He’s dangerous. As for my record with the Bar, find me here: http://www.tbpr.org/Consumers/AttorneySearch/ Find me under BPR # 024755.

ZEEK REWARDS RECOVERY

It’s been a busy few days in the MLM industry, to say the least. We recently had one of the fastest growing companies in MLM history, Zeek Rewards, come crashing down after being shut down as a ponzi scheme by the SEC. On my site, I summarized the SEC’s action and wrote about the implications for the MLM industry in general. The article can be found here. After writing the article, I was literally flooded with hundreds of messages from people that were affected by this disaster. The stories were remarkable. People left their jobs, cashed in on their retirements and drained their savings in an effort to maximize their earnings with Zeek.

The funds in Zeek Rewards have been voluntarily placed with a court appointed receiver. Zeek is not contesting the allegations in the SEC’s complaint. The receiver is now obligated to take stock of the assets and distribute funds back to the investors. Given the volume of victims, it’s going to be a very long process, in our opinion. Due to the volume of investors in Zeek, which is projected to be close to one million, we’re not sure how the receiver is going to effectively communicate with the class of investors. In an article on Forbes.com, the author put it into perspective when he wrote:

“While investor losses pale in comparison to those experienced by Madoff or Stanford investors, the sheer number of Zeek investors is on a magnitude that has never been dealt with before in a receivership or bankruptcy context. To illustrate, assuming Zeek had one million investors, a simple 1-page summary for each investor summarizing contributions and withdrawals, stacked together, would be 101.3 meters high, or roughly 300 feet. The staggering number of victims suggests that investigation of the fraud and establishment of a distribution process will likely be a drawn-out process involving hundreds, if not thousands, of people.”
Given my expertise in dealing with MLM law, and my partner’s experience with receiverships, our firm is uniquely positioned to communicate with the receiver on behalf of Zeek victims. Instead of getting lost in the stack, we can build numbers and collectively get a seat at the table.

If you invested in the Zeek program, please fill out the form below. If the form is not showing up in your inbox, please click here. There are no obligations after filling out the form. We’ll be publishing an action plan on Friday.

Zeek Rewards Update: Fun Club USA Not Covering Legal Fees For All Their Members It Seems

Truth & Justice

One of our community members, Zeek Freak directed me to an article written by Don Ryan over at ASD Updates published an interesting notice put out by Fun Club USA on Nov. 6th, 2012. What caught my attention was the fact, Fun Club USA after collecting what some have calculated to be in the high six or even seven figures, seemingly is refusing to cover the legal costs of their donors who are part of the 1200 Subpoenas issued by the Zeek rewards Receiver, Kenneth Bell. Why?

According to the statement below, the reason is because there are so few in their group who have been subpoenaed, that they feel they can handle it on their own. However, Don Ryan brings up a great point. If all 1200 went to the Fun Club USA law firm of Alexander Ricks PLLC, he would earn an additional $360k Now without a doubt all 1200 will not hire him. Many have already reached out to Phillip Young to handle there case.

The question is WHY won’t Fun Club USA cover the $300 per member, after what some call begging them for legal donations to save them from clawbacks?

Another question might be… Is Fun Club USA covering the cost of the “Chosen 12” as some critics now call the top promoters who have joined Robert Craddock.

And… one former Zeek Rewards Affiliate, after listening to the last call, asked “Why was Robert Craddock served in the 1200, when he has publicly told folks he only made a few hundred dollars?

Well no matter what the answers, just mae sure you have all the info you can find before jumping on any of the propaganda, pro or con against the Zeek Rewards Subpoena issue.

Don Ryan’s post starts here…

Here we have today’s update as promised, only a day late.  I will point out tho you that I do nor condone, recommend or advise anyone to use their law firm,  Consult your own legal experts before acting on any advice from Fun Club USA or its spokesman.  Subpoenas requiring you to provide information in a Civil or Criminal matter is not an extraordinary request and is a court issued document that should not be ignored. There are penalties for failure to comply.

While I have no opinion either way about the law firm of Alexander Ricks, PLLC., if every one of the first 1,200 who  received a Subpoena uses them, they make $360,000 in fees. I suppose if they do anything of substance, it might be worth the money. However, you have to make your own decisions about what is best for your own interests.

Fun Club USA, LLC reminds me of the infamous ASD Members Business Association (ASDMBA), who promised people things that were never delivered after they took in money. Much of what has been said by FCU and its people are echoes of what happened in the ASD Civil and Criminal cases which started out in a similar fashion, namely, seizure of assets.

November 6, 2012

Greetings good people, update to the conference calls on Saturday November 3, 2012.

For everyone that has received a subpoena for information from Kenneth Bell, you like us believe that Kenneth Bell is fishing for information to intimidate and to get you to voluntary turn over monies you earned by bringing value to the Zeekler Penny Auction.

As I clearly stated, you are not under any court order to turn over any funds and it is our position that Zeek Rewards was a legal business model, claims stating otherwise are false.

Our law firm is now willing to take on the people that have received subpoenas from Kenneth Bell and respond to them for you. The firm has come up with a flat rate for doing this and it is quite affordable.

You will be listed on the court records as being represented by the firm and they will file the objection to Kenneth Bell’s subpoena request for you. You have 14 days to file an objection and the clock is ticking. Because this is only impacting a small percentage of people we decided to not ask the entire group to help fund this, and the law firm has agreed to do this on a flat fee per person needing assistance of just $300 dollars.

Only people that have received subpoenas should call the law firm.
