"Anyway in these times here comes a company called TVI who clearly states what you have to do and how you would be compensated, helpss people earn money and helps them to start living life instead of just going through the process of living. helps them earn more money so that they can give their family and kids a better lifestyle."So in other words, TVI Express is just "helping" the less fortunate, right? Heck, TVI Express is "touching lives globally". That is their slogan. So look at this quote:
-- "maverick", posted in the comments of http://hubpages.com/hub/TVI-Express-is-an-international-scam
"I just did it [MLM business] to tell a few people about it who really needed help,"Does this sound like a TVI Express member? Yes?
Except in this case, it's not. It's from Donna Lewis, wife of former CEO of Bank of America, Ken Lewis. And she was saying nice things about a pyramid scheme called FHTM. FHTM settled a lawsuit from Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance, charging it as a "pryamid promotional scheme", and FHTM agreed to pay over $1 million in fines and refunds.
Folks, Donna Lewis is not an illiterate third-world grandma who don't know anything about travel. (though that's the sort of people scammers are going after in China) Donna Lewis is a college-educated career woman married to one of the highest-placed banking executives in the world. And she fell for the scam, after being recruited by a local TV personality.
And why were they recruited? The scam need to borrow their name, in any form possible. Others whose name were dragged into the mess includes Ken Lewis, her husband, and even NASCAR racing legend Geoff Bodine. (read the article link). Mrs. Lewis had to state on TV that her husband was NEVER involved, but you can still find references to her husband put out by FHTM members on Youtube and elsewhere, borrowing his good name to promote a scam. So is the name of racing legend Geoff Bodine. Apparently someone signed up using his name, and others picked up on that, claiming it is implied endorsement.
Sort of reminds you about the the Pampered Chef and Warren Buffet business, doesn't it?
And TVI Express does exactly the same thing as FHTM: recruit over selling.
And FHTM is a PROVEN scam.
