Fox News Los Angeles Exposé on Fortune Hi Tech Marketing

Fox News in Los Angeles did an exposé on multi-level marketing company Fortune Hi Tech Marketing. This video exposes the truth behind the company: operating like a pyramid scheme, dismal failure rates, false earnings representations, few making any money, broken promises, FHTM lying about its relationship with big name companies.

Fox interviewed me for their story, but you should note that the comments they used in this video were comments I made about MLM in general, not specifically FHTM.

Safe Haven Orphanage Advance Fee Scam

Charitable causes, like a Haitian orphanage, can pull at the heartstrings of many. Unfortunately, these charities are being used as the front for “advance fee scams” which trick consumers out of hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Fox6′s Contact 6 investigators looked into a letter received by a Milwaukee woman, which asked her to cash a check meant for a Haitian orphanage, keep part of the money, and send the rest to the scammers. What consumers don’t realize is that checks like this are fake, and it may take days or weeks for the bank to realize it. By that time, they’ve sent  part of the money to the scammers, and are on the hook for the entire amount of the bounced check.

Direct Selling (Multi-Level Marketing) and the Economy
