I followed a link in a "Manifestation Meditation" newsletter from Justin Blake at newsletter@jbvirtualnews.com promoting a home-business via Partnerwithpaul.com. This website showed a video of "Paul" w/ a "fuzzed-out" face, (red-flag #1) and blacked out last name (red-flag #2). He was promoting a home-business that he "developed" and wanted to share it with those interested in having a business also. He talked about "trust"...ha, ha! You were asked to fill out a form and he would send you a DVD explaining his business. I rec'd a DVD/booklet w/ a letter from someone claiming to be my Personal Coach, Kristy Borrowe. I was charged $9.95 for S&H (which I agreed to & paid w/a cc). Got it yesterday. I wasted almost 1.5 hrs. of my time reading/viewing a DVD that was all about HERBALIFE and was hosted by an Herbalife distributor(s) called Emiko and Doran Andry, trying to recruit. This Andry guy was convincing at first, but I became very suspicious when he would reveal the name of the business or company & claims to have made $1million in one month during his career. I didn't want a DVD about an MLM..that is NOT what I believed I was going to be receiving.

If I had known that, I NEVER, EVER would have followed-through. This absolutely constitutes deceitful, and unlawful business practices on the behalf of everyone involved in this transaction: Justin Blake, Paul (whatever his last name is), Kristy Borrowe, the Herbalife Corporation and its distributors, Doran and Emiko Andry.

For any of these individuals to admits to being innocent of this knowledge is flat-out WRONG. If you have to stoop this low to get people to "buy into" the business, your trust & your MLM goes out the door. Shame on you!

Justin Blake, PartnerwithPaul

AUTHOR: Jennifer - (U.S.A.)

I actually came here via doing some more research on Justin Blake's latest scam - 2 free CD, valued at $197. Do NOT DO IT!

For those concerned. PartnerWithPaul - Paul is Paul Birdsall. Doing a google search on this guy is a couple of days project. He's created more programs than I can count. The BBB of Canada used to have a huge list of belly-up internet schemes, fake names, addresses, etc. In the last 5-6 years, he has created programs such as PayItForward for Profits, Streamline Magic, and yes, PartnerWithPAul. They all ultimately led into a home based business, a few involved selling worthless leads, and other programs to take the unsuspecting victim's money.

He's led people into Shaklee (which if memory serves me correctly - he was booted out of Shaklee) and now he's pitching his PartnerWithPaul that leads into Herbalife, a company that's been around for years, may have good products, but is a front end loader with very low returns.

It IS difficult to discern the truth sometimes and extremely difficult to pick a profitable home based business. But I can tell you this. When someone offers you something free, you just pay shipping, you better be checking your credit card frequently.

If the ad makes grand claims guaranteeing you can get rich quick, automated, etc .... you better be running FAST in the opposite direction. There is absolutely NO get RICH quick method, unless of course, you buy a lottery ticket and win.

Blurred out faces on videos - yep - HUGE RED Flag.

Unfortunately most people do not google search UNTIL after they have been scammed. If they did google these guys names first, we'd have a whole lot less victims of internet scams.

MLM Scams

AUTHOR: Bob - (U.S.A.)

I have been looking for a part-time business to run from my home for a very long time (and have not found one yet!) This type of deceiving scam seems to be spreading like a disease over the internet and I highly recommend that you investigate any business opportunity thoroughly before you invest a penny into it.
Every single similar opportunity I have investigated seem to lead to the same conclusion. There is no magic bullet and to be successful you need to work hard it is that simple.

Thank you for your comments. You saved my money.

AUTHOR: P.O.'ed In Troy - (U.S.A.)

I love this website. Every time I get something in my email that sounds fishy, I just pull up this site and usually someone has dealt with them before. If they don't pop up then I look more into it. But since you have explained what it is about, I will not give them my money. Did they offer to refund shipping cost like they said they would? It peaked my interest because $9.95 for shipping didn't sound too unreasonable. And when he even mentioned the BBB and refunding shipping cost, I thought maybe it's legit. I might go online and talk to one of their representatives and just play the game. I will drop the word Herbalife and see what kind of response I get.

Thanks.
