Did Tarun Trikha launch more scams?

An interesting complaint surfaced on ComplaintsForum

SayYourWay is hidden behind "domaindiscreet", the domain privacy service offered by

Search of domain archive shows nothing.

The "executive team" has pretty generic names such as "Simon Cooper", "Ray Koo", "Brian Marsh", "Martin Duke", and "Kitty Leung", none of which included actual items that can be fact checked.

It also has some very odd badges at the bottom, such as TrustE, Verisign, DSA, and a generic "satisfaction 100% guaranteed" badge, but all of them are quite small.

The Verisign and TrustE badges are NOT LINKED for verification, so they are bogus.

DSA badge is bogus too, as the company has nothing to do with direct selling. In any case, if you are a DSA member you should say "associate member" or such.

Study of the remainder of the website revealed it to be a better presented version of the SpeakAsia scam.

While the whole thing is indeed very likely to be a scam, I cannot find anything to link it to Tarun Trikha. It is possible, but there's no evidence (yet) pointing that way.

I'll check Neo-Vo and MLMconnects in a future post.
