Must be seen to be believed:

Never post video say scam is NOT scam online...

If you post videos of yourself saying a scam is NOT a scam, people will find your video years later, even after you changed your mind, found the truth, and be ridiculed ever after.

Such as this guy, whose video, though mostly eradicated from American sites, is reappearing on FRENCH video sites:


The URL referred to, toptviexpressteam.com, is dead. That should tell you how old this video is.

Second, I know TopTVIExpressTeam. They jumped ship to "Revolving Relay" (another pyramid scheme) back in June 2010. You can find them in the archives of this very blog.

Thus, if you claim a scam is not a scam, your own infamy will outlast the scam itself.

And if you actually visit the link, you'll find dozens of people committed the same mistake: put their own face on a video, reading from a script, that says "TVI Express is great opportunity", without real understanding.

NEWSFLASH: TVI Express officially convicted as pyramid scheme in Australia

telegraph.com.au reports:

TVI Express a pyramid scam, Federal Court finds

The Federal Court has found Tina Aroha Brownlee (left), Lualhati "Teddi" Jutsen and David Graeme Scanlon promoted a pyramid selling scheme called TVI Epxress. This picture comes from the now-defunct TVI Team Oz website.

IF it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. That adage has been confirmed by the Federal Court in a judgment which finds a Sydney woman and two others flogging a supposed discount travel and accommodation deal were really running a pyramid-selling scam.

Justice John Nicholas also found Lualhati "Teddi" Jutsen, Tina Aroha Brownlee and David Graeme Scanlon -- as promoters of a scheme called TVI Express -- breached the sections of the Trade Practices Act relating misleading and deceptive conduct.

Graphics Design Essentials and Spam, generic spamticle site again

Didn't we see this site already? Yep, several times, including "Lawrence Tam" and one just a few days ago.

This article even ADMITS it is a zombie article, as it gave itself a date of 2009!

In fact, the "top authors" count is IDENTICAL to that other one. Which suggests that this is the SAME SITE, just a different domain name.

Some Egyptians are Deceived by TVI fake award again

According to Facebook, this TVI Express Egypt account is passing on that old BOGUS Award given to PT TVI Express Indonesia, the one that had its business license REVOKED back in August 2011.


As explained earlier, this award is bogus. It's called "International", but it's ONLY issued to Indonesian companies, and winners are solicited via random spam fax, and winners need to pay a large appearance fee to buy a table at the award banquet.

What's more, the winner, PT TVI Express Indonesia, lost their business license just a few months later when it was revealed they are operating under the wrong type of business license, and is under investigation by government as "money game" (i.e. pyramid scheme).

TVI Express Egypt, you don't want to end up like PT TVI Express Indonesia. Don't be stupid.

Who is uploading old TVI Express video **** to Youtube from Indonesia?

Recently, a bunch of videos showed up on Youtube from Indonesia. Following screen shot was captured on 20-NOV-2011, only hours after the video's upload, as you can see.


Look at first video. Who is Edward Aritonang? He is the police chief of Central Java, Indonesia.  So why is TVI Express naming him? It turns out, TVI Express recruited him to lend itself credibility. They are using his picture and everything at local events.

However keep in mind that TVI Express was declared "haram" (unclean) by Islamic Council of Indonesia in 2010, and declared illegally operating, with its business permit revoked in August 2011.

So which Indonesian moron is uploading video about a DEAD company? Let's find out.

The Youtube Account gave no details other than the guy's in Indonesia, but then the videos are Indonesian.

Checking the accountname tviexpress4world revealed a website, which is a co.cc, which actually means it's a domain forwarder. It was forwarded to a wordpress blog called tviexpress4world.wordpress.com


So the guy's name is Wayan Merdika. What else can we find about him? (BTW, that card is a fake. TVI Express don't issue membership cards.)

His SWOM account is inactive.

His Twitter account is inactive (only twitted ONCE, EVER, back in June 2010)

His Facebook group had no wall updates for over a year. Though he did spam the Brazil group.

There's an address that matches the phone number he gave out above:


And another commentary where he offers up a certain property in Indonesia for sale (same phone number)

He apparently is also head of  "Balinese Carving Team" (same phone number again)

And finally, a decent picture!  Which seems to match the picture in the Youtube profile. Name matches, and location (Bali, Indonesia) also matches.


This basically proves that this guy has NO IDEA WHAT HE WAS DOING, trying something, anything, everything.

This is the sort of people especially vulnerable to the TVI Express scam, but it doesn't explain what he was doing updating his Youtube channel with OLD video (those video first appeared on Youtube back in 2010) on a company that is no longer legal in Indonesia.

Why did you upload zombie videos, Mr. Wayan Merdika?

Filipino TVI Express members, see your American predecessors use the same stupid tactics

Recently, I've highlighted a lot of Filipino TVI Express supporters blindingly offer up bogus defense of TVI Express either here on this blog, or at my "Hubpages" hubs. I have dissected such sorry excuses. [Here] , [here], [ here ], [ here ], [ here ],  [ here ],  and [ here ]

And you foolish Filipino TVI Express defenders are repeating history by being stupid. What you morons are doing is repeating the same things American TVI Express members have claimed against critics. Troy Dooly, who had been on MLM scene for a while, called TVI Express a scam back in 2009, and some guy named John Piro claimed Troy Dooly is full of ****. Here's Troy Dooly's response.

http://mlmhelpdesk.com/mlm-scam-update-john-piro-exposes-troy-doolys-hidden-agenda-at-mlm-help-desk/

Actually, I've highlighted John Piro before. He eventually changed his mind about TVI Express... after almost a year. However, his previous zombie spamticles and zombie spamideos are still getting recycled / revivified by various "SEO" morons out there.

What you say now on the Internet will live on forever, proving you were once a moron, supported a scam.

The American Federal Trade Commission has advice for real people looking for real opportunities

The American FTC is the federal level agency tasked with protecting consumers, i.e. you and me from fraudulent businesses in general, including MLM or businesses that claim to be MLM. They have 8 recommendations and three major questions you should ask of the people recruiting you. Let's start with the questions first, and try it on TVI Express (feel free to try it against your favorite MLM):


1. What are your annual sales of the product? How much product did you sell to distributors? What percentage of your sales were made to distributors?


In TVI Express, the only honest answer from the upline is Zero, All (however many people he recruited), All 100%. 

TVI Express "distributors" doesn't sell any hotel vouchers or travel or any such thing. They sell MEMBERSHIPS to TVI Express (which supposedly gets you a voucher for travel, and alleged discounts). Or in other words, they don't sell trips to people outside the company at all, thus they are NOT a travel business. And that, is bad, because having NO PRODUCT means the whole thing is a pyramid scheme

If you ask about this, then the upline will try to claim various things as product.
a) They will claim membership itself is a product (it's not, but it's a requirement for access to product. ). 
b) They will claim the free trip that comes with the membership is the product (again, it's not, as you can't get the trip without the membership). 
c) They will claim the discounts you can get for the membership is the product (again, it's not. Discount to other products is not in itself a product. )

In other words, all of the explanation are bogus, and the upline is desperately spinning bull**** hoping you won't notice the bogosity of his explanations. 

2. What were your expenses last year, including money you spent on training and purchasing products? How much money did you make last year — that is, your income and bonuses minus your expenses? How much time did you spend last year on the business? How long have you been in the business? How many people are in your downline?

Most TVI Express members, who are honest, will admit that they only just joined up for a few weeks, or perhaps a few months, and they just recruited people, and didn't advertise or anything. Then they'll glide right into "I paid only $250 USD (plus fees) to join and I am about to make ______!"  They claim they have no expenses, and have dozens, hundreds, etc. in their downline. 

Come on, how can a business have no expenses? Some will claim they setup websites, send out e-mails, print flyers, paid for ads, and so on, but all of them are toward RECRUITING, not selling anything. Thus, they have defeated their own explanation: they aren't selling anything. They are all recruiting. 

A business that recruits and sells nothing except memberships (i.e. recruits) is a pyramid scheme, not a business. 

3. What percentage of the money you made — income and bonuses minus your expenses — came from recruiting other distributors and selling them inventory or other items to get started?

In TVI Express, ALL income is from recruiting (cycle out of 2 "boards"), which guarantees that TVI Express is a pyramid scheme. There is no inventory or actual items or training. It's all recruit people, get paid. That is the very definition of pyramid scheme.

NEWSFLASH: Lesotho warns Public AGAIN: TVI Express is an illegal scam

Central Bank of Lesotho found out that when you warn scammers, they ignore the warnings. Sunday Express newspaper of Lesotho reports:


CBL warns public against TVI Express

Caswell Tlali
MASERU — The Central Bank of Lesotho (CBL) has again warned the public against investing their monies in a pyramid scheme operated by Travel Ventures International (TVI) Express.
TVI Express is under criminal investigations in a number of countries.
The central bank’s warning comes two months after it issued a similar warning urging the public not to invest their monies in the scheme.
In a statement last week, the CBL said TVI Express was “operating in Lesotho in violation of the law”.
“The activities of this scheme resemble those of selling and marketing pyramid schemes as defined in Section 2 of the Financial Institutions Act, 1999, in terms of receiving funds from the public,” the bank said.
“The Central Bank of Lesotho would also like to caution all promoters of TVI Express, including persons who attempt to recruit others, either by word-of-mouth or via spamming email messages to join these schemes, anywhere in Lesotho, to stop such practices immediately.”
The CBL said TVI Express business operations place substantial emphasis on recruitment of participants.
“In this respect, the scheme offers lucrative incentives to the participants, calculated primarily on the basis of the number of participants or members that have been recruited into it,” said the bank.
“It is evident that these recruitment-based incentives serve as a bait to attract potential participants into joining the scheme, with the prospect of making easy money by recruiting others.
“In the whole, selling of purported products or services is a small component of the business model in the scheme and therefore designed to defraud members of the public,” the bank added.
CBL spokesperson, Thato Mohasoa, told the Sunday Express last month that TVI Express was not registered with the central bank as required under law.
Mohasoa however said he did not wish to comment beyond what had been stated in the statement.
He was however adamant that TVI Express was operating a fraudulent scheme and was fleecing people.
“I stick by our official statement that promoters of this business and those who are recruiting others to join it are breaking the law,” Mohasoa said.
Prospective investors are required to pay M2 700 as membership fee.
Investigations by the Sunday Express have revealed that TVI Express did not have offices in Lesotho.
The company also does not appear in the register of companies at the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
It also does not appear at the registrar of sole proprietary or partnership businesses.
It also does not appear in the list of cooperative societies and register of friendly associations.

Tarun Trikha is now a confirmed plagiarist, in addition to scammer

Tarun Trikha sure had an interesting life thus far. South Africa called him "leader of 1 billion Rand scam", living the big life in suburbs of India, allegedly has his own corporate jet flying all over the world promoting his scam, TVI Express, and insinuate he's part owner in a new Indonesia airline to his followers.

So what's his website like? Full of plagiarized articles, unfortunately. See for yourself:


Looks pretty professionally written, right? That's because it is... by someone else:


They didn't change a SINGLE WORD. And the link at EzineArticles.com confirms this article had been online since May 2010.

Which proves beyond a doubt that Tarun Trikha is a plagiarist, in addition to being a scammer.

But then, I've proven before that most of his "expert watch" section on TVI Express website was stolen from a book by Randy Gage. So this is not a surprise to me at all.

A leopard can't change his spots, and a scammer can't stop scamming.

Pacific Royale Airline? More Generic Clipart

Previously we have some diehard TVI Express supports claim that Tarun Trikha is a majority owner in Pacific Royale Airways that's being launched in Indonesia sometime in 2012.

However, repeated study of various sources in Indonesia cannot confirm any sort of link between TVI Express and/or Tarun Trikha with this new airline (which is real), at least, not through any information that was NOT provided by Tarun Trikha or TVI Express (or their supporters). The closest they can get is "Indian Investor Mr. T". 


Now that PacificRoyale.com got a content update, it's clear that this website can't be legit if they can't be bothered to find picture of a REAL PLANE, but instead, is using some free vector art found on the Internet somewhere. See for yourself:


And the freebie:



Either this airline is so poor it must resort to free clipart to make its website (not sign of competence), or this is made by a bull****er. 

Which is more likely?

MLM and Pyramid Scheme are outlawed by Islam

An Islamic Expert explained it very all on AllExperts (and it was cited from IslamToday, who cited from Saudi research group on Fatwa's and Islam). I will attempt to summarize, but I am not a Muslim therefore if there are improper summaries, it's my fault.

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Islam-947/2008/8/multi-level-marketing.htm

Why is MLM and Pyramid Scheme illegal under Shariah (Islamic law)?

1) Usury, or handing over small amount of money, and get huge rewards later, is illegal under Shariah. Pyramid scheme fits this definition.

2) Shariah prohibits "uncertainty business", or business with significant degree of chance. MLM and pyramid scheme, where you don't know if you can recruit enough people, is such an "uncertainty business".

3) Shariah prohibits taking other people's money through false promises. Pyramid scheme, where you must pay to join, is prohibited.

4) Shariah prohibits deception and outright fraud, such as misrepresenting payment as "commission", misrepresenting a fraud as a business, and so on.

"Shine" is back with more bull**** explanations

"Shine", with an IP address that traced to Saudi Arabia, is back with more moronic comments, where he replies to questions about the legitimacy of TVI Express with "just look at our website".


The only proof that "Shine" have of ethical practice is "look at TVI Express website".

Anybody can write anything on a website. Didn't the entire world got punked when someone put up a website that claimed Internet Explorer users have lower IQ? That turned out to be a hoax. Website in itself is no proof.

Furthermore, TVI Express has been long documented to be a liar and obfuscator when it comes to "truth".



And you expect people to believe TVI Express actually has ethical conduct? Is it ethical to ignore all these problems and concerns?

The "stealing dreams" comment is even more inane, because in a pyramid scheme, in order to have your dream, you have to steal 200+ other people's dreams. (15 person pyramid, 2 of them, comes out to be 225, minus yourself, so 224 people, less if one or more buys multiple memberships) And to achieve their own dreams, they each have to steal 224 more people's dreams.

That's the scam part about pyramid schemes... instead of they scamming 200+ people, they have YOU scamming 200+ people. And because they're in India, when police come, they will come after YOU, not TVI Express. Police can't get to TVI Express, but they can get to you.

Furthermore, MLM and pyramid scheme are outlawed by Islam, and Indonesian Islamic Council on Ache already declared TVI Express a scam.

I suspect "shine" here is a foreign worker or immigrant to Saudi Arabia, probably from Philippines or Indonesia. Does Saudi Arabia still institute caning for haram practices, such as scamming people out of money?

Desperate TVIte says "join the scam any way!"

Another comment on the news articles hub... this time, claiming that you really need to join and see what it's about. Interestingly, this comment came from... Saudi Arabia?

The comment often starts with a quip... As if ridiculing my motives would make their point seem stronger. It's just more "ad hominem" attack... They can't attack the facts, so they attack the presenter.

Then the commenter says "proof? join and see for yourself". Hah! With a dozen countries saying it's scam, with actual arrests, why would ANYONE join it?

BTW, Shine, are you aware that Indonesia Islamic Council had declared TVI Express haram? I know that's on the other side of the world, but can you prove that TVI Express is halal? I seriously doubt it.

The following comment was posted at my collection of real news articles about TVI Express: and it's a fraud around the world. So what did this guy comment on?


First of all, it's NOT a review, but a collection of real news articles from around the world, all of them stating that TVI Express is an illegal pyramid scheme. Go ahead and click thru and see his comment at the bottom.

Second, the only counterpoint he got is "some people got paid", which is what pyramid schemes do.

Toto from Philippines: it's not illegal yet!

Got ANOTHER comment from the Philippines... which doesn't even try to refute the evidence presented at all:


Again, "toto" ignores the fact that it is not he who loses, but ALL THE PEOPLE HE RECRUITED that will lose. For every person who "gained" $10000, 200+ people put in $250 EACH into the system. The vacation is difficult to redeem, cost additional money to redeem, and you need to recruit 14 other people to "make your money back".

Toto doesn't care if the operation is illegal and can be shut down by the government at any time. He only cares that it's not illegal yet (nobody's been convicted in the Philippines), and he needs every recruit he can get (before then).

Toto is very good in telling ONE SIDE of the story and making in sound good.

I'm here telling you THE OTHER SIDE, the side they don't want you to know.

Alex from Philippines can't tell what's legitimate vs. what's legal

Take a look at the following comment posted by a "alex of philippines"


The problem with this post is fallacy of equivocation: saying one thing when it really means something else. In this case, "alex" basically claims that if a business did its proper registration for paying taxes and such, it must be a legitimate company, and CANNOT be illegal.

A business can have all its paperwork in order, but if it operates as a pyramid scheme, it surely IS illegal. It is legitimate in the sense that it has all the paperwork in order, but NOT in the sense that it is operating as a non-fraud. Yet alex seem to think they are the same: paperwork = not fraud, when it's illogical.

As for having presidents and other leaders in town, so what? Indonesian branch of TVI Express got its license revoked. They had presidents and other officers too.

The rest is just "I made money so it can't be scam". That's equivocation too. They are defining scam as "took my money can didn't give me anything", when scam covers a lot more than that, such as a pyramid scheme (which is pretty much proven conclusively several times over, based on TVI Express's own info).

All three parts of the argument / evidence are bogus.

So "alex", I hope God bless you and you don't get arrested for promoting a fraud, but I feel wrath from your friends and family coming soon...

Ed from Phillipines enjoys being deceived, admits so

Ed from Philippines wrote back after I pointed out flaws in his thinking.


The problem here is he doesn't care about the people who are under the people who are under him. According to him, it's just "other people's money", who cares about them?

That's the problem with a pyramid scheme: when it gets to be a couple layers removed, you no longer care about defrauding other people. You don't know them (except they're friend of a friend or relative of a relative) and thus, you don't give a **** about what happens to their money. All you care is that YOU benefited from this scam, and those immediately under you (who also "cycled out").

PYRAMID SCHEME IS ILLEGAL, and "ed" here basically admitted he doesn't give a **** as long as he got the money.

Is this sort of behavior that you want to join?

Ed from Phillipines tries the bogus "TVI is a club" argument

A certain guy who used the handle "ed" decided to recycle the "TVI Express is a buyer's club" argument in hopes of convincing me (and my readers) that TVI Express is legitimate.

His argument has multiple parts

1) TVI Express is a club (therefore it is legitimate)

2) Uplines hellp people who are under them to cycle them out

3) If you are against TVI Express, you are ruining people's lives

Let's examine them one at a time.

1) Is TVI Express a "club"? (or a "gym", which is a fitness club)

The answer is NO, because the "service" that it offers, i.e. selection of hotels, airfare, and so on, can be had for FREE on Travelocity and other Internet travel giants.

Besides, what exactly *do* you sell in TVI Express? Do you actually sell trips, airfare, hotel, and so on? No! You sell MEMBERSHIP! (Which allegedly gives you discounts on trips, but we've already explained that same discounts can be had elsewhere for FREE)

Thus, TVI Express is NOT a club. This is a BOGUS argument, and it's one I had busted BEFORE.

2) Do Uplines help their own downlines to cycle out?

Frankly, this makes NO SENSE whatsoever, because the mathematics do NOT support it.

Simply answer this question: if it's so lucrative, why don't the upline cycle himself out by buying as many memberships as he can?

Because it can't be done. To cycle out and make that alleged $10000, you need to pay TVI Express $56250, that's assuming 15x15x$250  (15 people per "board", 2 boards, $250 each person). Even if you count the first $500 (which is not really $500, but $250 in eWallet, with membership voucher "worth" $250)

Clearly, a lot of that 200+ $250 memberships must be paid by somebody ELSE. In fact VAST MAJORITY must be paid by someone else. A LOT of someone else's.

Thus, "your upline will pay for a few memberships to cycle you out" only PROVES that it's a pyramid scheme, not disprove it at all. They are willing to sacrifice some of their potential gain just to make you feel better about putting your money in.

3) Does speaking out against TVI Express ruin lives?

This is a fundamental lie. If a person does not join TVI Express, his or her circumstance does NOT change. Thus, it is NOT RUINED.

Joining TVI Express has tremendous risks. Not only can you lose the money you put in, and every person you recruit can hate you for life, including friends and family. Furthermore, you can be arrested for fraud by the government, as many people around the world have found out.

Sure, there's the POTENTIAL of getting that $10000, but is the risk worth it? Ed seem to think so, but his claim that NOT joining TVI Express ruins lives, is totally bogus.

CONCLUSION: EVERY ONE OF ED'S ARGUMENTS IS BOGUS. 

TVI Express and... satellite TV? Only on a spam blog
