What does a TVI Express Zombie Look Like? Look here.

What does a fool look like? Someone who warms over something that is already illegal in the US, and tells you it's profitable.

Here's one example:

The whole thing is riddle with errors. I mean, who the heck leaves "sample page" on their blog?

Then there's the question about "based in London". And who the heck is Bill Hemming and Sam Cooper? Where does it even say that on TVI Express website? Why does other websites, and Tarun Trikha himself says he's the CEO and VP?

Not only is the information wrong, it's not even consistent with the lies told by the company. it's hilarious.

More Zombie Content from 2009 warmed over like death

A website called eTicketsForSale decided to warm over some TVI Express Zombie Articles, because it had the word "Travelocity" in it. Here's the beginning and end of it... but no author.

 blah blah blah blah blah...

Okay, but who the heck wrote this? If you go back to ArticleAlley, you find the author is supposedly "UltimateBizReviews", and it is dated 2009. So this is definitely zombie content.

So who's UltimateBizReviews? Clearly not that ultimate, since he hadn't submitted a single article since end of 2009. In fact, the Spamticle about TVI Express is third-to-last.

But what's this guy's name? Turns out he's Bill Tannar, who operates

However, there is no mention of TVI Express on the entire website.

Clearly, this article is bull****.

NEWSFLASH: TVI Express claims being declared ILLEGAL by BMPK is a "complication"

TVI Express reaction to being declared ILLEGAL in Indonesia by BMPK regulatory agency for lacking the proper business license is "complication".

Changing the name will somehow fix having the wrong type of license? WTF?!

The rest of the article is "we are out to promote tourism in Indonesia". What utter bull****.

It appears TVI Express subsite wants to reprint every TVI Express article under the sun

It just reprinted another zombie article from 2009 as if it's fresh info. What a joke. Here's a screenshot:

And here's the exact same article, albeit in video form, back in 2009. Exact same title, August 18, 2009.

So this is clearly a mis-representation already: reviving zombie content.

But what does John Piro REALLY say about TVI Express?  In 2009 he accused another review site of slamming TVI Express, and was loudly counter-slammed by other MLM pros. This is right around the time his videos showed up, as per the date above.

Okay, what about Mr. John Piro now? Let's check his website,

But is there any mention of TVI Express on his website? Nope, not a word. See for yourself:

Actions speak louder than words. Clearly, the words are old, obsolete, out of date, and so on and so forth.

Which makes Zombie content revivers liars.

NEWSFLASH: More Vietnamese News on How Illegal TVI Express is

Following is from Vietnamese newspaper. Basically, thousands are duped, and perps have disappeared. Local lawyers explained that the whole thing's illegal: it's pyramid scheme, illegal operating as bank, AND giving out illegal receipts, PLUS business not registered in Vietnam. It's illegal on EVERY level, and it's the SAME SORT of lies they told in China, Indonesia, and other countries.

Trap network, "International tourism"
22/07/2011 16:53:14
With attractive gimmicks "just traveling, just make money" with the bonus of up to $ 500, $ 10,000 and the opportunity to receive the reward of great value such as cars, villas, yachts, Private jet (?), causes many people in HCMC and neighboring provinces' sa trap. "Time, the "members" of "international tourist train TVIExpress" is very frustrating because you think you have been scammed big amount ...

If the former, multi-level activities are usually well known business in commodities such as cosmetics, dietary supplements, now this method has "transformed" into another form. It is the consumer (NTD) to participate as members not to sell products that are involved in "international tourist train TVIExpress" to "just traveling, just make money."

According to the ad units, this organization is the latest money worldwide. TVIExpress is an organization of travel e-commerce combined to give members the opportunity of travel and volume of reward. Participants only need to pay 275 USD (cash discount when booking travel) and invited 2 a companion (who also played 275 USD each), the participants at that first became members, issued its own code, and also have the opportunity to score bonus money (500 USD, $ 10,000), in kind and travel around the world (?) ...
Because advertising is so compelling style like so when opened in Ho Chi Minh in May 3 / 2010, International Tourism Offices TVI Express (referred to Ho Chi Minh TVI) has attracted many people to find understand and sign up to participate from the first day.
Ms. Do Thi Hoang Oanh (51 years old, live in Phu Nhuan District, Ho Chi Minh), said that as directed by a friend, she sought to office in Ho Chi Minh TVI (Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Da Kao Ward, District 1) and here she is the staff menu was offered.

According to the explanation of the company, the amount that the member pay 275 USD to participate (as pre-booking discount travel) will be deducted from the cost of traveling by tour organized by the company. In addition, the participating members, to invite two friends traveling (each played 275 USD), the members had a chance to get 500 USD (only an opportunity but not yet received). And so, each fellow must continue to invite two people to accompany the same again ... until this prescription (prescription green area) for 15 of the first participants will receive $ 500 and "exit" Court to-gray.

Registration form and receipts for membership "discount when booking travel" of TVI HCMC to customers has not signed the director, chief accountant and seal with ... mango seeds.

According to repeat a similar process, members will also have the opportunity to receive $ 10,000, then receive $ 10,000 and more than once approached with the opportunity to receive valuable artifacts such as the ... See the newly travel re just too easy to earn, on 24 / 3, she immediately ordered seven Oanh number of foreign travel for themselves and their families with a total deposit is $ 1,925 (exchange rate 19.350d/USD ). However, shortly thereafter, Ms. Oanh hear information and suspicious activity units "illegal" should be rushed to reclaim the money, but until now still not been resolved.

According to our understanding, the members of the Ho Chi Minh TVI not only in Ho Chi Minh, but also many other localities, such as Dong Nai, Long An, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Lam Dong, Binh Thuan ... Each member holds at least 1-2 code, which members decided to buy tens of code to look forward to receiving the bonus. It is reported that so far the unit has disappeared from Ho Chi Minh and hugged the large amount of members.

Lawyer Nguyen Van Hau - vice-chairman of Lawyers Ho Chi Minh said, according to Decree 110/2005/ND-CP of the Government's multi-level sales, the TVI requirements Oanh she became close to 275 USD members are violations of law. This Decree also specifies requirements prohibit people who want to participate must pay, or pay any fee in the form of courses, training courses, seminars, social activities or other similar activities to be right to participate in multi-level sales network, except for material purchase.
On the other hand, the behavior of TVI also competition law violations and are considered illegal multi-level sales; According to Decree No. 51/2010/ND - CP dated 14/5/2010 on the bill of sale, supply services, the voucher bill is set by the seller and the sales to billing.Therefore, the behavior of TVI billing will be handled for administrative violations, a fine of 5 million to 20 million for failing to bill the sales value of more than 200,000 payment to the purchase, and to invoice the buyer.

To protect themselves, consumers should consider carefully before signing the contract, rather than letting the consequences before you proceed with the complaint or lawsuit. So keep in mind: Always be careful and look before signing the contract; look needs to make a decision yourself first, always active in signing the contract to find out information about prices and content products on the market before the decision before you buy to read the offerings, learn about business, as well as the prestige of enterprises supplying goods or providing services

TVI Express Subsite is a Content Farm Zombie Spam Blog

We've previously highlighted a spam blog called, where it populates its posts through automatically culled content from various content farms, and most of the content turned out to be zombie content, death warmed over, stuff long expired and obsolete, that sort of stuff.

Here's some more... They revived an article from 2009. Here's their version, notice the "sample page" hilarity...:

And here's the ORIGINAL article, dated 2009... on a content farm.

What's REALLY hilarious is this article was written by Bob Allen, NOT TVI Express. So it's intentionally misleading already.

Furthermore, what about Bob Allen himself?

The "" website is "DNS failed, this site does not exist".

Verified zombie content, guaranteed dead content. What for? Google ignores **** content like this.

Did Larry Wells grew a conscience?

Previously we've highlighted LarryWell's spam blog site posting zombie content touting the "benefits" of TVI Express. Guess he doesn't have much of a filter, since he just posted an entry on why TVI Express is a scam:

The guy basically reposted MY news back in May 2010 about how China is prosecuting TVI Express scammers, arresting at least two. I've found quite a bit more both before and after that event, in more countries than ever.

Clearly, Larry Wells can't attract any decent content, and he's reposting whatever he can find. Guess he has to hit some REAL content every once in a while...

War against Potty Mouth Roasa continues

Previously, I had highlighted a Mr. Joel de la Torre Roasa as a potty mouth who somehow came to the conclusion that because I insulted his favorite scam, I should be in a mental hospital instead of him.

Guess what, he wrote back.

Isn't that interesting... the first thing that came to his mind when I accuse him is not "I didn't do it", but instead is "he is guilty of insulting TVI Express".

Are you aware of signs of a cult, Mr. Roasa? And that you are acting like a cult member who had been brainwashed? Of course not.
The aura of Sacred Silence - Prohibiting any questioning of the basic dogma, the cult’s laws, regulations and rules are absolute and must be followed.
I questioned the validity of TVI Express cult. Therefore, in Mr. Roasa's eyes, I am automatically "guilty".

I would suggest a cult deprogrammer in your future, Mr. Roasa. The sooner the better.

Furthermore, Mr. Roasa persisted in this "it paid therefore it's not a scam" definition, DELIBERATELY IGNORING DEFINITION OF A PYRAMID SCHEME, where some of the people do get paid.

I checked myself, I feel just fine.

YOU, Mr. Roasa, on the other hand, needs to take your own advice: visit a mental hospital. It's clear you can't even open a dictionary and understand the definition of "scam". I wonder how joining this scam has affected your intelligence. Perhaps some scientists can start a project on how a scam affects IQ of its victims.

TVI Wants to Open Office in South Africa AFTER its reps were arrested? Please!

TVI Express (Tarun Trikha) claimed they are opening office in China and Hong Kong. When TVI Express reps were arrested in China, and convicted, TVI Express did nothing

TVI Express (through stupid reps) claimed to be opening office in Florida in 2011 back in 2010. Now it's almost half way through 2011, the only we learned is TVI Express was sued in at least one state and is CLEARLY illegal according to interpretations of laws by prominent MLM attorneys. 

TVI Express can't even survive in its native country India without incident. In 2009 it was chased out of Sikkim, India by police when an FIR (initial report) was done. They got an attorney, paid out 6000 participants, and promised never to return. 

So can you believe them whey they slapped together some stock photos, made a sign, and claim they are establishing an office in South Africa? This is off a fellow blogger, but the picture and words were copied from official TVI Express announcements:

Not only is this an zombie article, it's STUPID zombie.
