Benjamin Wey Threatens Investigative Reporter Francine McKenna

Francine McKenna is an investigative reporter who focuses her writings on the auditing profession. She blogs at re: The Auditors, and also writes for financial publications such as Forbes, The Financial Times, American Banker, and more.

In February, Ms. McKenna wrote about the auditors of AgFeed, a Chinese company involved in an elaborate accounting fraud. In March 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged the company and its top executives with fraud:

With the bulk of its hog production operations in China, the executives used a variety of methods to inflate revenue from 2008 to mid-2011, including fake invoices for the sale of feed and purported sales of hogs that didn’t really exist.  They later tried to cover up their actions by saying the fake hogs died.  Because fatter hogs bring higher market prices, they also inflated the weights of actual hogs sold and correspondingly inflated the sales revenues for those hogs.  Read More

Xyngular Works: Losing Weight Fast!

Xyngular is a weight loss MLM (multi-level marketing) company which advertises quick, sustainable weight loss using their products. Last year I wrote a lengthy article about the Xyngular products, and I came to the conclusion that the products are dangerous, the diet is a fad diet (which is almost guaranteed to be unsustainable), and promoters like Jennifer McKinney (MckMama) lie to their potential customers and recruits.

I wanted to provide an update on the Xyngular and Ignite products. My stance hasn’t changed. If anything, I am even more strongly against the products after seeing the things I’m posting here.

Jennifer McKinney is most well known for being the mommy blogger MckMama, as well as for being a serial scammer. Her exploits include fraud on the United States Bankruptcy Court, allegedly stealing money from her mother-in-law, continuing to leave creditors unpaid, and lying about her weight loss in order to recruit people into Xyngular.
