FHTM Loses in Federal Court as judge reverses her earlier decision. Arbitration agreement deemed invalid and illusory. Class action proceeds as plaintiffs prepare for discovery. All defendants on hook even if they quit FHTM already.

Has anyone heard anything new about this ponzi-scheme? Has anyone found out why Todd Rowland skipped out of his rent-a-mansion last month in the middle of the night? Why has he moved to the Florida panhandle? It certainly isnt because he loves the beach. How does a guy who claims he makes upwards of $5 Million a year NOT own anything. no assets at all. everything is rented or leased. what a JOKE!

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 bet you are not with FHTM anymore?

You know the fact is in FHTM's own income disclosure statement that shows 96% of those involved are going broke!

According to the IDS only half of 1% percent make money....these are the same guys that either got in early or brought over an already established downline from another company....Excel Telecom that went bankrupt. What do you say to that?

I don't have to read what others post, or what the media has published and exposed. I can go straight to the source to see facts are facts non-biased info. Start with BBB, they have a track record under Government actions and fines paid out.

Look up Operation Empty Promises where State Attorney Generals from across the country are involved. The Pending Class Action Lawsuits.

Those sources are convincing and credible. Not sure how else to refute credible sources. How about you?

A former NSM in FHTM, that ranked in the top 15, left the company and had much to say about FHTM and the declining numbers, leaving many top reps to have to go back to working a job.

Read what the rep had to say here:

FTC and Three State Attorney Generals from Illinois, Kentucky and North Carolina shut down FHTM.

“This is the beginning of the end for one of the most prolific pyramid schemes operating in North America,” Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway said.“This is a classic pyramid scheme in every sense of the word. The vast majority of people, more than 90 percent, who bought in to FHTM lost their money.”

The defendants are Paul C. Orberson, Thomas A. Mills, Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing Inc., FHTM Inc., Alan Clark Holdings LLC, FHTM Canada Inc., and Fortune Network Marketing (UK) Limited. On January 24, 2013, the court halted the deceptive practices, froze the defendants’ assets, and appointed a temporary receiver over the corporations pending a trial.

The Commission vote, including Commissioner J. Thomas Rosch, authorizing the staff to file the complaint was 5-0. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.

Fortune Hi-tech Marketing sales were never as alluded by its reps. They also generated 50% of their gross revenues from sign up fees, renewals and tools only used by the reps.

looks like Todd went to Herbalife. I think people sitting on the fence to see if this Scam will pull out of being shut down can look elsewhere now. FHTM is shut down for good! The company was an elaborate pyramid scheme. All the top leaders found a new he. Those scammed in West Plans by FHTM will get there money back once they settle the assets March.

Alex aka (Elvis) and Gary, what do you say about FHTM now? You defended FHTM on Chris Hoyts blog for nothing. Jackster, Dan, Chris, and Scott was always right about the company. We now know fhtm real earnings through all that time.

Fortune passed again wrote:
So your interpretation of the facts is that Fortune failed the two investigations?
So the punishment then is that they have to agree not to embarass the AG's office by going into detail about the nature of their actions and their inevitable findings?
The lifting of the C&D order and the granting of the Transient Merchant License were just irrelevant formalities?
This is your interpretation? Fortune did not "pass", they somehow failed?
aka Elvis, FHTM failed and the FTC shut them down for good. I thought you should know.

Where did all the fortune tellers go? Did they skip the country? I know fhtm was big in West Plains because of Mike Misenheimer, but with a big drop out rate I don't think anyone is involved.

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://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C43JKQG

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.

His campaign for truth-telling finally bears fruit when FHTM was shut down on the morning of January 28th, 2013 when the FTC and Kentucky AG raided the Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing corporate offices in Lexington, Kentucky. Employees were sent walking and all files were confiscated. Northern District of Illinois Federal Judge Darrah issues a temporary restraining order. Receiver Rob Evans and Associates was appointed.

"This is the beginning of the end for one of the most prolific pyramid schemes operating in North America," Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway said. "This is a classic pyramid scheme in every sense of the word. The vast majority of people, more than 90 percent, who bought in to FHTM lost their money."

Nice of you to remember the discussion on Chris Hoyt's blog. Yeah, I wonder what ever happened to Elvis and Gary. I like to think that I had some small part in shutting this scam down. It took longer than I ever thought it would but in the end justice was served.

Why would you try and entice a fraud whistle-blower with another scam? Isnt that kinda ridiculous? Anyone that pays a 200% WEEKLY COMMISISON IS RUNNING A PONZI SCHEME......HANDS DOWN!
