"just sit down work for someone else, and let them reap the rewards of your labor, all I can say to that is WOW."

You just described FHTM to a T. Any sensible person can tell after reviewing FHTM income disclosure statment most all those who sign up will be making those at the top richer while you remain broke. What kind of work does a sucker call that? Don't belive me, just look at the facts on FHTM website, of course you will notice FHTM did skew their numbers on the IDS by excluding the the 30% that made nothing. Talk about a who is bilking who!

still not convincing enough guy, you try and sound intelligent but the reason they made nothing was because they did no work, how about that, huh? no work no money, try it at your job and see how much money you make. BLUF people(you) will always find an excuse to not do something, and will always try and keep others down where they are at, naysayers like yourself come a dime a dozen, reality is you have no base to draw your conclusions because you have no experience with the company good or bad, you are just listening and reading what others have said about it and trying to back up the negative press with your brand of intelligence, everything that comes out of your mouth is not gospel contrary to what you might think.

I think it is you who needs to get the Facts. You do not have to be a rep to buy any of FHTM's products and services. Stop go do your research then come back. This is exactly what I am talking about, so ready to trash talk, but clueless.

More negative coverage of FHTM recently. It seems that FHTM is being exposed more and more. I’m sure that FHTM representatives will attack the credibility of the ex representatives that were interviewed, but even without their information, the story is still compelling and does a good job of exposing FHTM’s inconsistencies and misleading practices.

James, anything new on FHTM beside the latest settlement in Texas? You had some very informative and credible information that has been very helpful.

I know this is old news and oudated, the link you shared is no longer working. I have provided the updated link in case people want to look at the I-Team investigation news report in Kentucky done on FHTM http://www.whas11.com/news/business/I-Team-In...

Kevv man BC, Thanks for sharing! Apparently FHTM is making the news in B.C. Canada with residents there about the scheme. Here is what I mlmblog wrote....
Fortune Hi Tech Under Fire In Canada
A multi-level marketing scheme expanding into Langley is under investigation in the U.S. and is facing allegations of unsavory practices there.
Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing calls itself a "network marketing" or "relationship marketing" company, using personal connections and social networking to sell a variety of products.
The company has come under fire for its practices in the United States, largely because it pays its members for signing up new members.
That's a warning sign that a company may be a pyramid scheme, say government and business watchdogs.
Gabrielle Tasse of the Competition Bureau of Canada said standard multi-level marketing companies make their money selling products.
"[Pyramid schemes] make their money off recruiting others," Tasse said.
She couldn't comment directly on FHTM, or say whether there have been complaints or if there are any investigations at present.
The Langley Advance sat in on a recent FHTM meeting, held in the Langley Township's council chambers on a Wednesday evening. The first portion of the meeting was held to recruit new members. The emphasis for much of the hour and a half meeting was on signing up still more members.
A top rep for the company in B.C. said reps undertake a two-step process: step one is selling products and services, step two is introducing the program to others.
"New guests in the room, your job is to build teams of 12," said Derek Sheane.
Along with Jessica Ward, Sheane told the crowd the couple joined 10 months ago and have quit their regular jobs to focus on FHTM full time.
Sheane and Ward emphasized that "anyone can do this business," and encouraged those signing up to then go out and sign up more people.
"Then we help them do the exact same thing," he said.
New members must pay $250 to join. Members then get a $125 direct deposit payment for each new recruit they sign up.
The company does sell a number of products online, including vitamins (from a firm owned by the FHTM founder), travel services, a roadside assistance package, VoiP services, and cellphone coverage. When a product is sold, the sales rep gets a percentage of the value of the sale. For an ongoing contract such as cellphone service, the percentage is received every month.
Rewards and promotions within the company's structure include a strong emphasis on developing a large network of recruits. Free trips, and even leased Lexus sedans, are available for people who hit certain targets.
Sheane and Ward recently qualified for a Lexus.
The reps also encouraged people to sign up for many of the products themselves.
Susan (not her real name) never got anywhere near a Lexus in her brief time with FHTM. Unemployed since she was laid off several years ago, Susan was invited by a friend who was already a member.
The Maple Ridge woman signed up two months ago, paying $299 to become a member. She then had to immediately accumulate three "customer points" to begin selling and recruiting.
She paid for the company's online office system, which has a video site and telephone service, and keeps track of sales.
"It came to another $150 bucks on top of that," she said.
"At first, they seemed very helpful," she said of the company's reps.
Wow I must have missed this article about FHTM's troubles in B.C., Canada. Wonder how that turned out? This appears to be the same location of that annoying FHTM rep on this blog from awhile back. These reps use consistent attempts to misinform distort and spin factual information, in an effort to defend a company that only sells dreams.

Looks as though Issacs and Knight were "Smarter" than most of us and we should have taken the WARNING seriously!

The Blame Game deepens as Fortune Hi-Tech (FHTM) leaders attempt to destroy Whistleblower!
By Slavick Scungilia, The Sentinel
Talk to any of the top leaders in Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing nowadays and they will tell you that Joseph Isaacs is the key to their recent business failures, representative departures, product losses and legal woes. These stories have been fabricated by Paul Orberson and passed down to many of the leaders including Todd Rowland, Ruel Morton and Woodson Gardner, who have in turn spread the rumors through the lower ranks of the FHTM sales force. Fortune holds weekly leadership calls that include the Presidential Ambassadors and top NSM’s to discuss their legal woes and put a spin on the latest BS that they intend to disseminate to the troops in order to cover up the real truth about their scam and to totally discredit Isaacs. Instead of facing the facts about the situation, they claim he has single handedly destroyed their business relationships, their down lines, their product offerings and brought numerous AG's up their asses. If Isaacs is capable of such a huge feat - then FHTM should wake up and hire him to rebuild their highly tarnished image. Isaacs obviously possess better determination and skills than they ever gave him credit for.

no products.....paid to recruit! Our friends signed us up they were very well respected business owners and the wife a realtor they meant no harm but we knew they were being scammed as were we! Of course they didn't listen because too much brain washing had occurred they sacrificed everything for this company. We (friends) previous network marketing never see them! Sad for all of us! This company needs to be exposed

Obviously there are real issues at this company with tons of top leaders leaving vacating entire city's shutting down meetings canceling conference calls. What few leaders that are left grasping or air accusing the masses that have left of cross recruiting! Not to mention calling "other"companies scams. This has become quite the cult like atmosphere. Now it appears the attorneys general in NC, SC, TX, LA & GA are all getting complaints......to make matters worse attorneys have been hired for slanderous and defaming comments made by some including one female Presidential Ambassador! As if this is not enough thank God for "social media" so others can be warned to RUN! It appears many will be handing over some pricy platinum cars to dealers this will cause a major black eye.

I tried to keep the ship running here in my town after all the top leaders here bailed! Now I too see te light and know that my family and friends were correct and I was being brain washed. Presidential Ambassadors rolled into town shortly after our top leaders were gone only to speak bad of them which was the first point where I started to question what I was still doing here. These guys big business owners in town very well respected and everyone knows they weren't making any residual just bonus on recruiting. They just made a wise business decision for them. I really didn't appreciate these people (who aren't from here) rolling into town speaking bad about people who help everyone. Then as I started to get away from some of the brain washing cultish like activity it was like more and more fog lifted. They have changed the pay plan so much that I don't even know how they know what they have done. So sad they really just need to shut the doors. The "scam" not welcome in the volunteer state anymore. Me and the guys that were the core here will see to that! A big thank you to our leaders for leading and leaving to help open our eyes. Wow now we can salvage some relationships and cancel the pricy box that comes every month and who in their right min would pay $249 to renew or join this. I'm out and thankful!!

FHTM Impact 2012 – A Great white money shark washes ashore
It is so incomprehensible to understand how a company (Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing) that claims its mere existence is to help as many as possible, with help of the church, can also be so obnoxiously arrogant to believe they can manipulate the justice system to a point where they can push someone to death. After exposing the truth about Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FHTM) the whistleblower was sued in an attempt to shut him up and stifle his rights to freedom of speech.
“If the fate of your business model rests at the hands of one individual,(not me) to the extent that you have to spend millions of dollars to try and shut him up then the system is just fatally flawed. Fix the PROBLEM not the SYMPTOM. This is all just a side effect of what you have created. I don’t see the worst of the worst companies out there that act like this or have to put up with this nonsense. What’s the common denominator? Stop acting like 3rd graders and run a business for once”, says Rob Jenkins.

Not only are they arrogant enough to think they have to the right to destroy Mr. Isaacs financially, but they continue, to this day, the harassment and intentional lies.

When you peel the outside off of this lemon one discovers the bitterness and the exact opposite is true. FHTM has not only engaged in a malicious prosecution since the very beginning but they have had their representatives call and threaten Mr. Isaacs life. Filing a trademark violation case for using the world “Fortune” which they knew was owned by Time Magazine, and not them, was just a way to take advantage of the system by someone with more money that the poor defendant had. The ex- FHTM general counsel, Judy Hammerschmidt, who was not even licensed to practice law in Kentucky, during her tenure with FHTM, has displayed a great deal of malice and wrongful intent. Her attempts at intimidation as their general counsel were hilarious considering the fact that she was acting as a lawyer illegally. She has since been reprimanded by the Kentucky Bar Association. No evidence existed or exists to back any of their claims. If FHTM had a case with legal merit they would have never agreed to a settlement and dismissal in June 2011. They didn’t win anything as they have rumored through the ranks of their cult-like followers.

FHTM continues to purposefully engage in behavior that is extreme and outrageous which is intended to cause severe mental anguish and they should be penalized for the intentional infliction of emotional distress. The FHTM attorneys, who are milking their cash-cow client, have outright said that they will not be satisfied until Mr. Isaacs is homeless, without family, living on welfare in a cardboard box under a bridge somewhere. Their intention is not to get at the truth but instead to bankrupt Mr. Isaacs.

Mr. Isaacs took a sabbatical since the settlement in June 2011. He has given no further media interviews, no television appearances, no AG complaints and no internet blogging.

Their continued malicious prosecution and harassment resulted in Mr. Isaacs stress level hitting the roof in August 2011 causing a major life threatening heart attack. He underwent two major surgeries inside of a month to save his life. Doctor’s orders were to eliminate anything stressful in my life including the FHTM litigation and work. He was forced into retirement and has been going broke as a direct result of the litigation by FHTM in their attempt to kill him literally. It is like they smelled the blood and won’t let up till Mr. Isaacs is gone from the face of the earth permanently.

Who in their sane mind would ever think that such a supposedly respectable company, run by the “King of MLM”– Paul Orberson, would spend all of their resources on attempted murder? Their intentions are clear - don’t rest until Mr. Isaacs is dead and gone.
