I’ve been following responses to a post I made on another web site.

This one caught my eye.

By Alex in Business Scams
“The FBI and the Justice Department are actually quite smart.  The Federal Court’s ruling in favor of the FTC against Burnlounge, Arnold, Taylor and DeBoer (“ATD,” aka the “Three Stooges”)now sets up a strong case where the Justice Department will be able to charge Arnold, Taylor and DeBoer with conspiracy, mail fraud, violations of interstate banking laws, and RICO violations.  Instead of settling with the FTC earlier and waiting for Judge Wu to decide on the case, the Three Stooges have set themselves up perfectly for an easy prosecutorial conviction.
The $16 million+ is only the beginning of Alex Arnold’s legal troubles.  He now faces the probability of Federal criminal charges which will not only further bankrupt him (legal fees), but similar to how death is inevitable with terminal cancer, Alex Arnold would be sure to be convicted and have to spend time in prison.
As he tries to cover his financial tracks with this CieAura scam, it will only make his situation worse.  By trying to hide his involvement, he leaves himself open to forensic accounting experts who will unravel his deceptive financial involvement.
Sadly, it was obvious from the get-go that Burnlounge was not a legitimate business opportunity, and once the FTC got wind of it, Arnold and his cronies should have immediately admitted wrong-doing, shut the thing down, paid restitution.  He would have probably had been slapped with a heavy fine and some period of time where he was restricted from engaging in the mlm industry.  Now, it will only be a matter of time before Federal indictments will be coming down.
Judge Wu’s verdict also puts all mlm companies on notice.  The whole concept of retailing will now have to be clearly defined (which is good) and more companies will now be scrutinized by FTC.”

Don’t reply to spams. They often will click the ‘notify me by email’ box, so now they know someone has read and responded to their spam, which means we’ll now get MORE spam. Your best bet is to just hit the ‘report’ button and let the admins delete it.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

So Ken Rasner is actually a Pawn in this whole operation, huh ?

I always wondered where a two-bit musician would get the money to fund something like that.

I guess this explains it.

Yet another version of the Cieaura Tip Test, maybe they should write a magician’s handbook on How to fool an Audience.

Hilarious! But seriously, at this point, let Cieaura dupe as many gullibile idiots as it can. That way, when they’re outed as scam artists, the fallout will be HUGE.

:D

No offense to anyone’s beliefs or opinions but how can you absolutely say that this company is a scam?  Have you performed tests or performed research of any of the technology.  As for knocking the founder’s education, since when does a degree matter?  The have recently joined forces with the NBA and WNBA who put a lot of time and money into their brand.  Why would successful athletes like Lisa Leslie and Colt McCoy use the products daily and become independent retailers of a bogus product?  I just find it strange that none of the opinions here have much basis at all but simply compare it to previous products of little similarity.

How about giving us links to proper independent scientific trials?

I see you have no idea what a Degree can bring to a person. Properly recognised Degrees matter a lot.

Athletes may be successful at being athletes but pay them enough money and they will endorse anything.

I find it strange you offer no real evidence.

Funny…I was just reading your post and I am actually very well educated.  I graduated Cum Laude with a Business Management and Marketing degree and am currently working on a masters.  I understand the difference between “recognised” as you stated and recognized as Webster has stated for years.  I would like to access the trial information as well but it sounds to me as disgruntled rumblings without much basis.

As I am in Australia “recognised” is the appropriate spelling for me.

So you question the value of a Degree. Then why waste your time getting one? I could share your answer with my fellow classmates at my university if you like.

To quote a Carl Sagan, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Without seeing any real evidence I for one will not be spending my money on CieAura.
