TVI Express Member Lies Vol 4: what I am talking about is beyond what I talked about

Updated on August 19, 2010

Welcome

Welcome to volume 4 of TVI Express Member Lies, where we document the world of lies told by TVI Express members.

Today, the highlight is on http://strafa02ji.blog.163.com/blog/static/161937804201031221249919/

This website is picked because it is the first website that comes up when you enter "TVI Express Scam" into Baidu.com, the Chinese search equivalent of Google.com. 163.com is a Chinese website.

And this blog is absolutely hilarious. I have a hard time keeping a straight face reading this blog entry.

Copycat, and a bad copy too!

First thing you'll notice is this article is a copycat. It is cloned from other clones, one of which is here:

http://www.articlealley.com/article_1218141_15.html

In fact, I've already reviewed the EXACT SAME article, under someone else's name!

If you enter "reverse matrix system and is beyond the scope of this article" into a search engine, you'll probably find a DOZEN web links saying the same thing. And they are NOT all by the same author. So one thing is clear: TVI Express members are NOT shy stealing content from each other.

What's worse, somehow certain words in the article are laced with hair products links. No, I am NOT kidding. This is a direct quote: "has over 200,hair straighteners,00 distributors"

It's freaking hilarious.

Ending is even funnier

Tell me... would you read an article that has the following sentence:

What I am talking about is beyond the scope of this article.

I swear this is a direct quote from the end of the article.

What's even funnier is the "latest entries" (right hand column) is full of spam links and random keywords.

Makes you wonder why he cloned this article in the first place?

      I don't understand Mike. Lotto odds are published and established. It is on the back of every ticket, at the Lotto booths or machines, and even available online. If you buy Lotto, you KNOW your odds of winning. No deception is involved.

      In a scam, you think you go in to sell stuff. You are instead told to sell membership, which is just another name for recruiting. So you've been lied to.

      Maybe you do not understand the difference between truth and lie?

      And what "business system" is there in TVI Express? All you do is recruit people and sell nothing. There is no business, and no system.

      Perhaps you were crying? I'm laughing at your pathetic excuses.

      I do not understand this guy. It is MLM marketing and there is nothing to it. Investment is 250 USD therefore that is not a big deal. There are thousands of restaurants being closed each day for example and their owners invested tons of money into their business and lost everything so if you lose your measly 250 I think you can congratulate to yourself. If you do not risk you make no money if you do sometimes you lose it. I know a guy who spent 400USD every week on playing Lotto and who gets the money that are lost? Mostly the Government because nobody but the Gov. can own lottery games. So what is fair about that? If MLM would be a normal game like a lottery nobody would say a thing about it. Stop crying over 250 and if you want to show the world how good you are in any business then develop your own business system and make it a success buy stop crying like a woman.

      Just noticed... a "spam" message from "david", who posted from... India! 59.164.82.90 is Bombay, India. He even linked to something that doesn't exist any more. How interesting!
