  • Paul Orberson's Titanic (FHTM) Crashes Into Iceberg [View instapost]
    There has been plenty to report. Paul Orberson and Tom Mills are banned from MLM or any other business for life. All of their assets have been taken by the receiver and are up for sale so the hundreds of thousands of victims can be made whole. What were you expecting? Jail time, tha'ts next.

    You are totally incorrect in your assumptions. People failed in FHTM because the system was designed for failure of most and the success of only a handful.

    Ernest Hemingway - you need to read the latest Motion by the FTC. They have found so much wrong but in FHTM's usual fanfare they pay millions of dollars to delay justice. There is a hearing in front of the judge on May 28, 2013 where a permanent injunction and asset freeze will be issued against Orberson, Mills and FHTM.

    Read all about it here:

    Trials and cases against pyramid schemes do not get resolved in a week or a month like Paul Orberson had led his followers to believe. That's hilarious.

  • What Bill Ackman Doesn't Want You To Know About The FHTM Case [View article]
    The memoir is finally available. All of the truth telling about the internal workings of FHTM as a corrupt and Ponzi type MLM is available. Whistle-blower Joseph Isaacs, who was made famous by exposing the Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FHTM) pyramid scheme and fraud back in 2010 has just released his memoir called, “Skapegoat – the FHTM Blame Game Story” via Amazon at http://amzn.to/11SSnvM or in paperback via http://bit.ly/12cIucb This compelling, true and personal, story is about a successful semi-retired 30+ year entrepreneur that turned whistle-blower after getting involved with an illegal Ponzi style MLM called Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FHTM) in 2009. Top FHTM leaders and its founder Paul Orberson tried to destroy his life after he developed a FREE Facebook style tool-set for the industry. Subsequent to FHTM receiving their 2nd cease and desist from Montana, he filed a complaint with the Kentucky BBB explaining their fraudulent ways, in an effort to get reimbursement for unwanted inventory. Shortly thereafter they make him the global scapegoat for everything bad happening to FHTM. Mr. Isaacs was hit with a frivolous lawsuit claiming trademark violation for marks they never owned. The “fortune mark” is owned by Time, Inc. and FHTM was under an order to stop using it themselves. This was a foolish attempt to gag him and stifle his "Freedom of Speech" rights to prevent FHTM from being further branded as an "Illegal Pyramid Scheme". The stress of the harassing litigation caused multiple life-threatening heart attacks. Mr. Isaacs almost died in 2011 from the heart issues caused by FHTM. This story will keep you mesmerized by the deceit, sexual harassment, lies, judicial manipulation, influence peddling and the drama that unfolds over the next couple of years.

    Get informed. FHTM was a rigged game designed for 99% of the people to fail while the owners made $50Million+ in fast few years. Failure in FHTM has nothing to do with running a successful business. People failed in FHTM because that is what was supposed to happen to them.

    That process only makes sense pre-depression days. How many of those banks are profitable today and yielding dividends to the little stockholders?

    Has anyone taken a look at the latest findings that Robb Evans and Associates has published on FHTM's website? Incredible and confirms that the focus was on recruiting. Also shows the high drop out rate and the high % of people that didn't make money.

    It has been hard to get to the root of Fortune Hi-Tech's sales figures up until now. A few days ago the Federal judge unsealed the FTC v. FHTM case. After scouring through the exhibits their sales spreadsheets from 2006-2010 were found. Almost 50% of all of their combined 5 year revenue came from recruiting fees, renewals and tools for reps only. Product sales were less than 50% of total revenue and most of that was internal consumption by the representatives. The sales charts are available at:

    Happy reading. BTW - these are not the same figures given to the Texas AG or Direct Selling News to get listed in the top 100 a few years ago.

    How many victims ever knew what the real numbers were. Now they do thanks to the KY subpoenas and the FTC action.

    So true. The FTC didn't shut down FHTM because they took the word of the whistle-blower from 2010. He may have been the reason they began to look at the practices and business model of FHTM. They initiated their own 2 year internal investigation including multiple subpoenas and undercover insiders. They had their books and hundreds of videos as well as all marketing materials. They came to the conclusion that FHTM was a rigged game and a huge prolific pyramid scheme.

    If Orberson hadn't been such a pompous ass in his handling of the whistle-blower in 2010 and onward then things would have definately been different. He brought this pain upon himself.

    Your facts about the Isaacs - FHTM suit are ridiculous. The court never threw out his counter suit. Where do these facts come from - FHTM? With respect to Robert FitzPatrick - he is one of the world's most high respected experts on MLM.

    Sorry but your ramblings sound like those of a good little Orberson soldier.
    
    People didn't fail in FHTM - FHTM failed them by presenting a rigged business opportunity with a compensation plan designed for 90% of the people to fail no matter how hard they worked or how much time, energy and money they put into it.

    The FTC has reams of evidence after their 2 year inside investigation. If you read the memorandum of support for their TRO you would see they have more than enough o put an end to this fraud.

    I feel sorry for you that you can not see the light at the end of the tunnel. Best of luck to you in life without FHTM.

    First of all I want to let you know that your facts are skewed and 100% incorrect with respect to Fortune Social. FS was a social network for all MLM's. Only FHTM thought it was specific to them as a way to make Isaacs a skapegoat for all of their issues in the media. . They had the audacity to sue Mr. Isaacs for using a trademark they never owned.

    PS. You should read the lawsuit filed by the FTC. You can sell products to mask the true pyramid scheme. If you continue to drink the Orberson kool-aid you will remain a good cult follower but will never know the truth.
