This interesting information was posted on a Canadian discussion board where the members were talking about United First Financial. As you saw here, some of the top people in UFF see that the company is going under, and are looking for a way to take this horrible software to a new company, and leave all the dead weight agents behind.

Too bad users aren’t actually using the software anymore, according to the below. Read More

Medifast is Abusing the Legal System to Punish Critics of Take Shape For Life

Medifast General Counsel Michael Tanczyn, Esq. at the deposition of Sam Antar. (click to enlarge)

UPDATE: On February 17, 2010, Medifast Inc. filed suit in US District Court, Southern District of California, alleging defamation, violation of California Corporations Code, and unfair business practices. On March 29, 2011, Judge Janis Sammartino dismissed all of Medifast’s claims against me in her ruling on my anti-SLAPP motion.

Earlier this year, Medifast (NYSE: MED) filed a $270 million lawsuit against Barry Minkow, me, and several other defendants for what it has alleged are false statements and a conspiracy to damage the stock price of the company. This lawsuit is nothing more than the typical big company suing a critic to shut her up. Medifast has far more resources than any of the defendants, and the company was hoping that by suing us, we’d shut up about the company’s multi-level marketing division Take Shape For Life (TSFL).

Ufirst Financial: This is What a Collapsing Pyramid Looks Like

The demise of United First Financial is apparently imminent. The company has had anemic sales for more than a year, and it seemed it was only a matter of time before Ufirst folded. The end is coming nearer, as people at the top of the pyramid are looking to  the best people (not those bad ones who just get drain cash from the company every time they get a commission check) to find a new way to sell this crappy software via an MLM model.

Witness this email from Rich Schaffer, a pyramid-topper who gives excellent details about just how awful U1st Financial is doing!

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. Read More
