The Sun: 'Cash scam' worry for dad (19 june 2006)

Here's a story of a dad and his Lampe Berger son in The Sun today. I believe the same story was headlines for China Press too.

It's definitely smells like lampe berger...the clue? 30k.

It's good with so many press coverage hitting lampe berger. The end .... is near.


'Cash scam' worry for dad 19 june 2006

Yesterday was Father's Day but there was no joy for Ho Ka Choon.

In fact, the 45-year-old kereta sapu(unlicensed taxi) driver from Johor Baru has been losing sleep ever since his
undergraduate son started dabbling in get-rich-quick direct selling some time ago.

What worries Ho most is the dubious nature of the direct selling scheme and that his son has been lying to him
and borrowing money from friends and relatives to raise RM30,000 needed to purchase
certain products that enable him to recruit more members and get commission from the scheme.

Ho told China Press his 21-year-old son, a second-year student of Universiti Malaysia Sabah,
was an honest and filial son until he was coerced into paying RM2,000 to join the scheme.

Now he is a sweet-talking salesman only dreaming of making it big, he said.

"My son told me that if he recruits five members, he can get 10% of the new recruits'
joining fee as commission, and if he then pays up RM30,000 (for products), he
will become a senior executive and enjoy up to 50% in commission," said Ho.

"My son wanted to borrow RM10,000 from me to advance his 'career' but I have
a feeling it (the direct selling) is a trap."

He said the scheme sounded too good to be true and believed it could be a scam.

Ho said after he rejected his son's requests for RM10,000 and the title of family land
to borrow money from a bank, his son turned to relatives and friends for help.

Apart from warning relatives and friends againts lending his son money, Ho
urged the government to enact a law to bar university students from taking up direct-selling.

Closer to home, I have relatives, in their 20s who pestered the parent to mortgage their low cost flat for the RM30 to make it big. This is getting out of hand, isn't it?

urged the government to enact a law to bar university students from taking up direct-selling.

I dont think its a good idea doing that, not all direct-selling companies are scams, there are minority onces who really wanna try out direct selling as an experience. What we can do at least is to educate the society to keep an eye on scam schemes. Just my two cents.

I wonder what kind of lame defense those cultist at SYN will have this time.

Filial son turns into a brainwashed drone. I feel sorry for the guy's dad, what a Father's Day gift!, you better show your relatives the newspaper cutting and warn them of the dangers of joining the cult of SYN.

most probably the market will be slow after the headlines.the number of recruitment for counts (45k)would be highly influenced i supposed and they might start with the rm 2k for easier recruitment first. but even 2k would eventually end up adding another 30k sooner or later (frm 2k is slow). the recuriting planning is absolutely man eating man's money and not acceptable!

I have checked china press website and couldn't find the so called clarification news by the son. I guess that fake news is written by a syn lampe berger COWARD and it has never been published in china press website. If what we said is not true, please give us the website link. If we couldn't see that link, meaning that those lampe berger coward has run out of bullet until must write a so called clarification that so called publish by the news website fakely.

This is the best and most informative single message about Lampe Berger, please delete the Singapore part and e-mail to friends....


Please see if you find this useful and of any use: I cannot stand them anymore !!(Extracted from Sgforum)

Sometime next month, a Company selling the French fragrance products by the name of Lampe Berger will be holding a grand seminar in Sentosa Island to revive their business in Singapore.(note, this time they change the name to SYN(Steven Yeam Network) to give it a fresh start.
They have successfully revived their business in Malaysia targeting on young students and graduates. Recently a few Malaysian newspapers have published complaints by parents about how their children got brainwashed by them and refused to listen from their parents and some even thought of leaving school to go full time in the business. Today's(June 18th) Malaysia China Press have a front page headline news about it. Such news will not affect their business but even helped and motivate their distributors who are all young, naive and rebellious to work harder for it.
They are organising more than 1,000 active young Malaysian agents to come to Singapore together next month to revive their Singapore sales by recruiting younsters. If you have any young adults in your family or young friends, caution them ahead. These are some of their tricks used in recruitment:
a) They will never tell the prospects what products they are selling during the 1st or 2nd business preview. The most they mentioned are "branded goods from France" and the name "LV"
b) They will say products are not important but making money and business is the main aim.
c) A fleet of BMWs and sport cars will be driven and parked together to impress the prospects.
d) They will remind their prospects NOT to tell anyone else until they have joined and paid up because outsiders will not understand their business and tend to give negative effects.
e) If anyone tell them they heard negative feedback from outsiders or any ex-members who left, they will say, "who should you learn from ? The successful ones like us or those failure ones ?"
f) When it come to the products, they will only boost of their over 100 years history in France but they will not tell you that in US and Europe, they are sold as fragrance and perfumes only(check the websites) at only 1/3 of the prices here and NOT as essential oils or aromatherapy products claimed by them.
g) They will use a lot of their successfuyl members all well dressed in suits to impress their prospects but they will not tell you that out of every 1 successful, at least another 50 have lost their money and left.
h) They will not tell you the products are simply unpractical and troublesome to use. In fact a check in the websites showed the product is even dangerous. An explosion occured and someone in Taiwan got killed. HK TVB news also made a research and condemned them for cheating but their Company defended by telling their members that HK TVBS already "apologised" to them for the mistake and they forgave them.
i) They will also tell you that some of their fragrance bottles are collectors' items and can appreciate like antiques in future. In order to make you believe, they even display a few units for bidding and obviously their insiders and top-earners will jack up the price to make it believable.
j) They will tell you that you can get a refund up to 90% if you decide to return the unsold stock but most people managed to get back less than half because MOST items are not returnable. They will not tell you fully all which items are not refundable. Most people got caught and lost money because of this trap.
k) They even have lawyers and well-known people among them to give business talk so people tend to believe them easily and don't suspect that they have many "hidden" clauses in their contract.
l) Their business plan is designed in a manner to trick you to purchase the stock in someone else's name(for easier promotion) so that when it comes to return and refund, you will not be able to do it conveniently.
m) They will use their top-earner, a Malaysian by the name of Steven Yeam who is mostly based in HK now to act like a god or cult figure so that more people will adore and follow him blindly.
n) Once you joined, they will have many ways to make you pay more money. Even attending their talk or training, you need to pay. They will not tell you when they invite you. Upon arriving or halfway, they will make you pay.
o) They will make some big donation to some place and make a big publicity out of it to gain support and confidence from the public.
p) They use very high figures and discounts to attract you to buy more stock. Up to as much as 40%. Most people find it diffiult to sell off later.
q) They use lies to motivate their members and prospects. Some examples used are: "They will get listed soon in Malaysia""They will get the Singapore government to close Orchard Road for their rally and also loan them 20 helicopters to sentosa Island""They bought some share or joint-venture with Louis Vuitton in France", etc.
r) They will even deny themselves as MLM or direct-selling. They called themselves as a "new" franchise marketing system, leading many shopowners to get involved 2 or 3 years ago.
They will have a lot of new tricks and tactics to close a deal and those mentioned above are just a few. So do not underestimate them. Please take it seriously and if you have any friends, please e-mail or inform them with this message before they are victimised. Last I heard of, their Singapire office is in Beach Road but they might have changed now.
Please caution everyone and anyone who find this message useful, please help to circulate or link it to other forums.
Thank you for your attention.

The walton investment has NOTHING to do with LB or the China Press news. They are NOT using MLM. It is just a land investment.

9:15 AM

I saw the news in the website June 20th paper that the SON flew over to West Malaysia's China Press office and even mentioned that his dad has no more misunderstandings now.

Anyway, it is expected. The Company will pay him any amount to do it. Most LB victims will choose to die with them and go against anyone who don't support them. It don't change the facts of their business.

But strange the news mentioned the SON don't give his name and I wonder how the press verified he is really the son.

Chinese newspapers report, I seldom believe.

To everyone out there:
Indeed that the cases is getting bigger, now we even can see it on daily newspaper.

This LB pyramid scheme is like “Legal” “Black Mail”, let me explain why I say that. Have anyone watched “Derailed” before? You will see how the person black mail their victim. First they will ask from small amount of money, and they will tell you after you pay they won’t come back disturb you anymore.

Ok, here start, if you pay them the first amount money they request. Now they will see how easy they can get money from you. They will start step 2, request more money from you, using your family and your personal ego. They will see how far you can go, they will try to get any single cents from you, then move on to the next victims.

Let me break few point here.
Case 1: They will see the first amount of money, is it easy to get you pay or not. If you able to pay for the first amount of money, then they will demand for next level amount of money.
Question: Do you see the similarity? First RM 2,500+ then second RM 30,000

Case 2: They use some material such as your family, your personal ego to bring down their victims
Question: Some LB did use family topic and your personal ego to encourage you to join their down line, so in future you can take the responsible to feed your family in better life. Let everyone proud on you, pray you like a god (successful man I mean).

I apologize for my poor English.
