Over the last week I have received several contacts from MLM Reporters and MLM Critics alike asking about a purported set of emails being sent from purported RippLn insiders, employees with top-level contact to the founders. I did not give much thought to it, until I received an email from Oz, at BehindMLM asking questions, and then I received my own copies directly from the people involved.
First we checked the Email Headers to see if they were sent from iZigg or RippLn servers… NO!

Subject: I quit Rippln. For ethical reasons.From: Amanda.(Edited By Troy Dooly)@rippln.com
The second email was from the same server in Germany.
We then did search to see if anyone else has had issues with email from this server. We found several references of scam and spam emails being delivered from the above server.
We then cross-referenced Brian Underwood, private iZigg and RippLn emails and found that NONE of the emails he has sent to us, ever came from the above email server.
What pisses me off the most, is the fact most companies new and old make enough mistakes or cross the regulatory compliance line on their own without the subterfuge of outsiders. I am not sure if this is a civil or criminal offence, but I do know that the RippLn attorneys have been made aware of the issues, and we have made it clear we will work with them to turn over any information they may need to find those responsible.
