Mona Vie Name in your URL

Hacker Attack?

digital attackThis article is a copy of one formally at this web address.  This is currently down and is repeated here in its entirety as a public service!  It’s suspected of being hacked, as described here on LazyManAndMoney.  This page will be removed if all is okay.

Mona Vie Name in your URL!

Mona Vie: Don’t use our name in your URL, unless you’re Wikipedia (and we’re doing the editing), By the author of Expert Fraud Investigation and Essentials of Corporate Fraud , Tracy Coenen

“No, MonaVie doesn’t endorse or approve me writing about them. In fact, they’ll probably get mad that I’m mentioning them. I don’t like MonaVie“.- Tracy Coenen

Earlier this week I wrote about the MonaVie lawyers going after bloggers who do unflattering critiques of the company. Their premise was silly: You can’t use our name in a URL. Here’s exactly what they said in their threatening letter to blogger “Lazy Man”:

“As a network marketing company MonaVie does not permit its name to be used in any URL or email address and the company must take necessary action to protect its intellectual property. It is not permitted for a third party vendor to use the MonaVie trade name in any form.”

So no use of their name in a URL, and no user of their name in any form? Gotcha.


Except it’s not so cut and dried. Lots of references to MonaVie in the titles of articles makes it so that their name is in the URL:

But the best example of a URL that includes “Mona Vie” and would therefore violate the bogus legal threats of the company comes from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MonaVie

It gets better, though. Not only does Wikipedia use the MonaVie name in a URL (horrors!)… people at MonaVie headquarters actually participate in editing the article about Mona Vie!!! A lot!!!


Here’s the link showing edits done by 65.44.117.2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/65.44.117.2. You can see lots of edits to the MonaVie article.


And here’s the proof that the IP address doing these edits is owned by MonaVie:

http://centralops.net/co/DomainDossier.aspx?addr=65.44.117.2&dom_whois=true&dom_dns=true&traceroute=true&net_whois=true&svc_scan=true


For now, let’s ignore the fact that Wikipedia rules prohibit a company or its employees from editing articles about the company. That’s a conflict of interest (they obviously have an interest in slanting article material in a positive direction).


But I don’t care so much about that, however. What I care about is the fact that use of the MonaVie name in a URL seems to only be frowned upon when the URL is for an article with negative information and opinions. Have the lawyers gone after Inc.com for using their name in the URL? Or MarketWatch? Or Facebook?


Here’s the best part about the edits of the Mona Vie page on Wikipedia, though… This edit removed the company’s Income Disclosure Statement from the article. Interesting, isn’t it? Especially since the link is to a page on the official MonaVie website. How could they object to that? Easy. The MonaVie Income Disclosure Statement, if looked at carefully enough, is a damning piece of information. It proves that almost no one is making any money from the “wonderful opportunity” that Mona Vie is offering. Here’s an explanation of the statement, which clearly shows that 99% of MonaVie distributors are making $3.75 a week. What an opportunity.


So what is it, Mona Vie lawyers? Can we use your name in a URL or not? Or do your made up restrictions only apply to negative opinions?

Small Justice Against Solicitor Jim Beresford

Jim Beresford (slime of the earth)

Jim Beresford (slime of the earth)

Solicitors James Beresford and Douglas Smith – who took millions from Miners –  lose their appeal

Finally, after yet another year of time has passed, the crooked and not very appealing (they called themselves ‘entrepreneurial’)  James Beresford and Douglas Smith, formerly of Doncaster-based Beresfords Solicitors, have had their case against being struck off the solicitors’ roll quashed.

Unbelievably, Beresford and Smith deemed themselves fit to practice after ripping off taxpayers and widows.  See this BBC story

Doubtless, all the poor widow women who got a few hundred quid compensation for watching their husbands cough themselves to death because of industrial injury while the solicitors ran off with millions of taxpayers’ and their money will be gladdened by this…

NOT!

What should have happened is that all their ill-gotten gains should be taken back.  It’s not enough to stop them practising.  They deliberately set out to double-charge both victims and the taxpayer.  In many cases, these charges were wholly excessive anyway – and then they doubled them!

What actually happened  is that the grinning Beresford is now set up in another profitable business, living the life of Riley while the widows continue to suffer.   The slow drip of employee dissatisfaction shows the bloke to be as odious as before and karmic retribution is getting closer and closer for Beresford, at least.  (added on information received in later comments below)

Retribution

Retribution

The reality is that Beresford and Smith don’t just need their names striking off some paper roll.  They haven’t suffered in any way.

They need their balls striking off for having the balls to take money from those that could least afford it and who put their trust into their professional expertise where they promised to do the best for their clients.

As it is now, the interest on their ill-gotten gains is more than a banker’s pension.   I truly believe that Karmic Retribution will hurt these people very badly indeed.  It’s up to them to set right their wrongs or else they will suffer terribly.  I don’t have to do a thing.  I just know it.

See these related posts of mine and the other links on the devilish actions of the lawyers.

Google Revolution, Different Name, Same Scam!

Introduction

Beat the Scammer and the SwindlerMy email spambuster Mailwasher Pro is doing overtime since I posted my investigation into Google Treasure Chest and the Robert G Allen Grants swindle. In this second investigation, I showed how the email spam system links the various scam systems together. That is:

By signing up for one sytem, I started receiving email spam from all the various scams around even though they all have the mantra “we hate spammers as much as you do” and they all include privacy policies which expressly state that no email address is shared with anyone else….except third parties!

Bollocks! Of course, my interest was started with Google Treasure Chest, and then I issued a sequence of posts detailing my ever deepening investigations into these scum bastards and their rotten activities.

EMail Spam Reduction – temporarily!

Last week, a malware server was taken offline that had a small impact on the amount of spam I received. (see Methinks the ISP doth Protest Too Much). I reckon the rubbish went down to about 75% of the previous week’s level. In fact, because my Robert G Allen Grants swindle post focussed so much on resourcehurtcentral.com I actually noticed it in my spam by it’s absence!

resourcehurtcentral.com back in the Spam Game

Well I can tell you, it’s back now!

So I decided to see where one of the new spam points…

[email protected] is where the spam notionally comes from. This is despite the fact that I’ve ‘unsubscribed’ from their mailings -twice! So where do they want me to go?

http://ressourcehurtcentral.com…|Ug==.html

And of course, that’s not the destination – I immediately got redirected to:

https://www.6ftoverhead.com/ODU5N3w3MHwzMjM2MTd8djI=/r7w5n4b9/g

GoogleMoneyMaster

Google Money Master / Google Revolution

This page is worth ignoring, if you are feeling at all suicidal and want to give all your hard-earned money away to twats, that is!!! Otherwise, pay careful attention. NOW!

  • Firstly, it’s called Google Money Master at the top of the page.
  • The design is awfully like that of the original Google Treasure Chest signup page at securecartcenter.com
  • It says “As seen and trusted on Google, CNBC, USA Today, ABC, CNN & Yahoo!” – believe that if you will!
  • Now compare this with the statement at the bottom of the page which states “The trademarks in this image are owned by their respective owners who do not endorse this product. Google Revolution, LLC is not affiliated with, endorsed by or in any way associated with Google.”
  • From this, we can safely take it that they are only afraid of Google and don’t care a toss for the rest!

Now, please continue, and while carefully noting the 100% Trusted banner, check out the Terms & Conditions link at the bottom. You’ll have noticed the Matrix-like title “Revolution”. It’s about the same – what goes around comes around.

The T&Cs are now a bit more technical and a bit more frightening since the Google Treasure Chest days. e.g. take a look….

O. Chargebacks.

Initiation of a complaint or chargeback against Google Revolution for products or services rendered constitutes a severe breach of this Agreement. A “complaint or chargeback” shall be defined as initiating any form of complaint or chargeback with your credit card issuer or bank. Upon receipt of a complaint or chargeback, or threat thereof, Google Revolution will immediately deactivate all Services provided to the Customer, and immediately begin chargeback reversal (anti-fraud) procedures. In the event we lose the chargeback reversal procedures, we will immediately send to collections the full disputed amount in addition to an administrative fee of five hundred dollars ($500.00 USD). Please note that threats of a complaint or chargeback will be treated the same as an actual complaint or chargeback. In all cases, violation of this clause will result in cancellation of all Services provided to the Customer, regardless of services disputed.

This is their way to counter the recommendation by all of the anti-scammer websites to immediately initiate a chargeback against the company to recover your scammed money!

My personal recommendation is to carry on doing this, as recommended by Chris Malta’s scam tips. Cancel your card, get a chargeback and show your card company the scammy “Terms and Conditions” that this supposed company imposes.

Remember – just because someone writes something down as a Term & Condition for a service, doesn’t actually make it legal. You did realise, of course, that by reading this far you now owe me £1 million??? – I thought not! Well that’s my terms & condition for reading this post. Do you think it’s legal? Obviously not. It’s complete bollox isn’t it? Same goes for the Google bollox too!

Ownership

You will also note that Google Revolution is owned by:

Honshu Systems, LLC
Attn: Google Revolution General Counsel
2850 Horizon Ridge Pkwy
Suite 625
Henderson, NV 89052

Plot Thickens Again!

This would be it, you’d think. But no, the plot thickens again, so check out the actual Google Revolution website…. at http://web.archive.org/web/20140101002331/http://googlerevolution.com/, specifically their privacy policy (formerly at ). Like Roger Whitaker, we are back in County Durham in the UK!

You’ll see that all postal letters must go to:

15 Park Terrace Leadgate, Consett, County Durham, DH8 7QD United Kingdom.

But if you want to telephone, you have to call the USA here:

1-877-300-5671

Now, Using Google, I Checked the County Durham Address and Did a Search for Bad Scam Comments

The UK ‘Durham’ connection is interesting. There is at least one business registered at this address – called Spring Systems Limited. It’s details are here, https://www.ukdata.com/numbers/06919609.html

I checked Google for bad stuff on Google Money Master and Google Revolution. All the bad comments started about two weeks ago e.g.

There are many more.

Q.Now when do you think Spring Systems Limited was registered?

A. On 29/5/2009 – about two weeks ago!

Conclusion

It’s pretty clear that this really is a scam, and if not directly a continuation of Google Treasure Chest, Money Tree, Acai Berries, Grants or Green tea scams – it’s using exactly the same methods.

In searching for a reason for the profusion of contacts in County Durham, UK, I’m reminded of a sweet-faced Geordie bint I recently saw promoting Carbon Copy Pro, a similar MLM/pyramid type thing. My personal knowledge tells me that this part of England is like the Wild West at times. I’m from that area!

….Nevada still is, by the look of it! The sheer quantity of new scam business operating with apparent impunity and disregard for the law shows that the Nevada & Utah law enforcers can’t keep a lid on this.

That’s my definition of the Wild West – when laws are not enforced.

The County Durham UK connection is interesting and there are further co-incidences with the smoking gun of lawlessness and criminality that is Nevada, Utah and County Durham…

Spooky connections, eh?

Jeremy Paxman continuously Flabbergasted

Harriet Harman

For the last week or so, the highly paid Paxman has become obviously annoyed at the continuous devious behaviour from every politician he’s interviewed.  They all say “we understand the public’s anguish” – but, as Paxman notes, they do fuck all about it.  As many have noted, if you go into a shop and steal a bag of sugar and get caught, just giving the sugar back to the shop isn’t the normal chain of events – but that’s what MPs do!

Nicky Campbell and Harriet Harman

Two days ago, stuck in my bed, I had to suffer the even-paced utterances of Harriet Harman as she shape-shifted around Paxman’s questions.  This followed an earlier episode on the same day when she did the same on a live phonein on early morning Radio Five Live with the effervescent  Nicky Campbell.  Listen here to the full 45 mins

Paxman versus Harman

Paxman’s interview is here for a week or so until it’s pulled;  news.bbc.co.uk…8078715

If you can survive it, just watch the whole Harman (and other pieces) in the full programme, and wait for the round-up which you can see here;

www.bbc.co.uk…b00kwqxx_01_06_2009/

At precisely 35:30 into the show (you can fast-fwd if you like), Paxman tries to summarise exactly what Harman had just said in the monotonous sanctimonious ramblings…. Funny as fuck.  Here’s what he said:

“Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman told this programme… er, I don’t exactly what she told us… er, that public support… we haven’t got exactly what… we can’t tell precisely what we are proposing to repeat of what she said, but it was very interesting”.

The Guardian’s Media Monkey also picked up on this here, Harman’s all too forgettable for Paxo.  In total that day, I had 1.25 hours of Harman’s drifting and side-shifting.  And like Paxman, I can’t remember a single word or any single point that was made because of the verbal force-field in place.

William Hague versus Paxman

The latest episode of  tax sorry, question, sorry ‘tax question avoidance’ from Paxman was by ‘Don’t be Vague, ask for’ William Hague.  See all two minutes of smirking squirming here:

news.bbc.co.uk…8080379

Paxman’s interview with Hague has now made it onto YouTube:

I still remember him as young twat at an old Tory conference…

And this is exactly the problem that the public have with the politicians.  See my posting yesterday on this.  It’s just continuous rampant corruption, denial and avoidance.  Paxman is right to be flabbergasted.  If he can’t get an answer, then what hope Joe Bloggs (Joe the Plumber for my US readers).  Most military and police force members feel the same way.  Without their backing, if they don’t sort themselves out, we can easily bring in a guillotine.  We’ve had a civil war here.  We’ve chopped the heads off monarchs.  Britain isn’t such a nicey-nicey place to be when it’s riled up.  There are 30 million that think like this and 30 million too scared to disagree.

Conclusion

I don’t think Paxman’s losing it.  He is overpaid for what he does but I don’t think his powers have gone.  The problem is the politicians’ behaviour and Paxman’s exasperation at their intransigence at coming anywhere near to the public’s expectations.  It’s on their heads in the long run.  They’ve been told enough.
