We have another exposure on this DCHL business in Sin Chew Daily (24 may 2006). Although the article did not mention the company, but we could all guess, it's no other than the Lampe Berger business by Steven Yeam Network.

From the link above I can briefly transalate here:
(Ipoh) A son has been brainwash by a pyramid scheme MLM based company.Ask his mom to take out RM30K for investment.Due to the family financial issue,his mom suspect his son and don't borrow the amount for his son.Finally his son turn in "psycho" and make his mom worries.
Later this lady,Mrs Lee has been to Sin Chew office.Saying that his son currently studying in a University in KL.At the same time,he join as a member in a MLM company in KL too.On April,his son come back to hometown to look fo his mom and told her that he need to join this MLM on May.
Joining MLM needs RM2500
According to Mrs Lee,this company has no problem but the joining fee is RM2500.It requires to recruit some ppl and u r entitle to get 20% commision.
She said that his son need RM2500 to join,but she and her husband is income is low and unable to have extra money to support his son.Finally his son borrow from his friends and pay the "joining fee"
Ask mom to sell off the house
Recently,his son ask Mrs Lee for RM30K and suggest her to sell off her house.Mrs Lee did not agree with his son.In order to make his mom CONvinced by him,he bring his mom to the seminar.
"I found out in this company,most of them are teenagers around the age 18-20++. Some are just graduate or just new employed.Even that, they are some college or university students as well.They CONvinced these ppl by saying that If u r working or doing investment in traditional business,you won't be rich.But If you join here,you are able to drive luxury cars." says Mrs Lee
She says her son already pay RM2500 to join as member and unable to recruit somebody and yet her son ask for another RM30K.This make her felt suspicious about this MLM company.Furthermore,she and her husband unable to take out RM2500 for his son and yet need RM30K.His son ask her to sell off the house.Due to her suspicous thinking,she did not agree on it.
Been brainwash and become a Psychotic person
She says that her son told her that joining this MLM company can earn BIG MONEY,drive LUXURY CAR.And he says that this company helps ppl to earn BIG MONEY and become PROSPER! But she afraid that his son is been used by someone.
She sadly says that her son is been brainwash,and what ever she says won't make him awake.Her son always says that she didn't support him at all.And says that the RM30K must be paid on MAY.Or else there will be increased more than RM30K.Because of that RM30K,he turn into a psychotic person and makes her worry about her son will commit suicide.
Worry her son will commit suicide
Her son just bought 2 bottle of "Mouth Rinse Water" (Listerine),and she says that her son never have the habit of using the "Mouth Rinse Water".Because of her worries,she can't sleep every night because of looking for her son.
She try to make a police report but there was no evidence.All she hopes that her son will realise 1 day and look for a proper job.
