TelexFree: Declaration of Frank C. Huntington, Esq.

Mr. Huntington is a Senior Trial Counsel in the Boston regional Office of the SEC and mentions in his declaration a YouTube video posted by Defendant Faith Sloan, wherein she made the following statement:

“You post your ads. Take you a minute and a half. Three minutes. Five minutes max.”

“Place your ads, and you go about your day. You do that for seven days a week, you get paid every single week… You don’t have to build. You don’t have to sell.”

As most of you know, for some odd reason, all of the videos made or posted by Faith Sloan touting the wonders of TelexFree have been removed.  But, I wonder if she knows that there are always copies cached somewhere, or the Feds already made their own copies. Nothing really every goes away once it is posted on the interwebs.

In addition to this video, Mr. Huntington also located three (3) TelexFree related websites associated to Faith Sloan.  These domains were named:

  1. telexfreepower.com
  2. telexfreeprogram.com and
  3. telexfree.faithsloan.com

Excerpts from these websites are included in the Exhibits filed with the document.  Here’s a link to it:  Doc 60-3

BehindMLM: WCM777 offshoot, “Global Unity”

Unity Club: Global Unity Ponzi scheme refuses to die

unity-club-logoGlobal Unity is probably the most direct successor of the WCM777 Ponzi scheme. When the regulatory heat got too much for founder Phil Ming Xu, he put out a message saying he’d sold the business to some new owners, and that he hoped they could turn it legit.

Global Unity was far from legit though, with the owners instead opting to try to reload WCM777′s business model. Global Unity affiliates even professed the company to be safe from the SEC, largely due to the fact that it was based offshore in Hong Kong:

The team now manages the company from Hong Kong is doing so with much more professionalism than the previous team.

Total trust in the new policy according to which there has been. -Global Unity will not close, will continue its activity and will continue to pay according to the payment Plan.

SEC is only for USA. As already known the company not operating currently in USA. The rest of the world continues its activity.

That late March and after the announcement things went quiet. A week or so into April and Global Unity’s website went down, showing an “under construction” message.

Now, it seems the owners are trying to flog the same business under yet another name. [Continue reading…]
