This page will be updated when I have more time to give it the justice it deserves. I just wanted to make a quick couple of points about the IFEA, aka the International Free Enterprise Association.
When you are being scammed by an IGP conman for the first time, you undoubtably have many questions. Most ask, "Are you registered with the Better Business Bureau?" The reply will be something like this: "No, we are not registered with The Better Business Bureau because they are part of the government, however we are registered with the International Free Enterprise Association." First off, this is a complete LIE. The BBB has nothing to do with the government and I invite you to confirm this for yourself at their website http://www.bbbonline.org
But I digress....
The IFEA is the Institute of Global Prosperity's answer to this BBB question. It was created to not only make more money for the IGP "founders" (it is run by the wife of one of the founders of IGP) through yearly dues, but also to help other IGP conmen answer the BBB question. What are we supposed to do, trust IGP to police themselves! Come on!
Now, if that were not enough, IFEA claims to be a non-profit organization that "donates 20% of its members dues to Global Village Market to
feed the hungry." Sounds like they're supporting a CHARITY, doesn't it? Of course it does; it's SUPPOSED to sound that way! However, GVM is NOT a charity, it is
an MLM that is under investigation by the authorities. And, get this, IGP tells all members
to go to "to help Global Village Market and their worthy cause of helping to feed the hungry worldwide." If you do this, IGP would make a commmission from GVM, just like any other MLM.
So, why does IGP associate with GVM if the owner is under investigation for fraud? Well, this way they get to put M. Ali's picture on their site to make it look like he, Celine Deion, and other famous people actually endorse IGP. You will notice when you visit IGP's site, under "Humanitarian Projects" that there is absolutely no mention that any of these people endorse IGP... but nobody actually reads web sites carefully. Did you? Hey, would this site be more effective if I put some famous faces on each page?
I said this was going to be short. Please visit the following sites and form your own conclusions.
- Yank Barry, owner of GVM. Not a good guy to associate with, unless your IGP and need his "special skills".... which leads to the next link.
- This is an email I received with copies of pending cases against Barry for money laundering, fraud, conspiracy, and bribery.
