New name same crap for "Prosperity of Life"

 

CRAP
The company now known as "Prosperity of Life", formerly known as Liberty League, then briefly Polaris Media Group, afterwards Polaris Global has changed it's name once again. Shane Krider was one of the original founders of Liberty League in the USA. The company scammed thousands of dollars out of dozens of victims by promising huge commissions for selling their "self improvement" products. These products are the grossly overpriced "Beyond Freedom Evolution" home study course, which costs thousands of dollars but which is no better than many other courses available online for little or nothing and also their CONferences which cost mind blowingly ridiculous amounts of money, but which are essentially worthless.

Krider is currently married to Rachel Oliver, an ex Herbalife spruiker from Australia and has concentrated on scamming Aussies since being convicted in the US state of Arizona and essentially moving the scam across the Pacific. 

A big red flag when dealing with all MLM companies is recurring name changes combined with a claim that "we are not MLM".

The Kriders have a few so called "leaders" operating for them in Australia. Simon Haggard, Alison Wheeler, Adam Bude and Lee Anne Bartlett operate out of Queensland. Pauline O'Halloran in Victoria and Alex Ford in WA are joined by a rotating number of newbies who usually fall by the wayside once they realise that they have been conned.

 Give your cash to "Prosperity of Life" and kiss it goodbye.

    1. I have to thank you for bringing this information to the attention of other's who will undoubtedly be drawn into the hype.

      Found a grammatical error. Couldn't work out where to edit. The original comment is thus:

      One cannot help but wonder why there have been four name changes to the same "online business opportunity" since Liberty League was brought to its knees in court and closed down. Suss.

      So many people have been conned. So many ... it's sad. I guess, the squeaky door will eventually get the oil and these con artists who claim this is not MLM, nor is it a pyramid scheme, will be brought to their own knees.

      Prosperity of Life. Really?

      Not when you're left holding $30k in debt and you have to sell your home. Not when your upside team leader (the person who recruited you) is stripped of her every access to this scam and left dangling without ever knowing why. WTF? She was left $90K out of pocket with nothing to show for it.

      But how many people have just chalked this sad, greedy expose up to experience and walked away? Thousands.

      Who is still reaping the benefits? Unless you're on the tip of the pyramid, it certainly won't be you.

    2. They almost sucked me in! Luckily I decided to do my homework. They are currently operating in Australia through online job agencies like adzuna.

  2. Wow, I've just finished ploughing through 5 of their videos....time I can never get back! I'm getting a call at 5pm tomorrow to ask if I've watched the videos and to give me the hard sell I guess??? Something just said to me "go do a quick Google search" .....soooo glad I did! I'll be sending an email to Marilyn (Australia) to say don't bother calling me!

    2. I responded to a person's posting on Facebook - work from home in the USA. She is in South Africa. Did 1st interview which I "passed". In retrospect I believe she did not hear anything I said and is working of a pre-written script. I was sent the email with links to the videos. Once I had the name, I googled... and so glad I did. I did not waste any time watching the videos as I already had made up my mind not to touch this. Had my phone call today when I said thanks, but no thanks. What a snotty reception I got from her after that...

    3. Hi Ruby. Congratulations..... Unfortunately everybody "passes" their 1st interview and from there they are introduced to the hard sell to try to extract up to $30,000 from them. The Kriders have been at this for years and it only takes a few people each year to fall for it to keep the scam going. Since they cannot advertise on most job sites they have resorted to vague sounding ads on Facebook which are not clear and open.

  3. I came across this on facebook and entered my details. I missed a phone call from a lady but decided to do my due diligence and im glad I did. Total scam!

  4. These scammers are flat out advertising on several platforms even though the more reputable sites won't let them post an ad.

    1. It would be great if you could elaborate on your simple statement. Shane Krider was co founder of Liberty League and also POL. Beyond Freedom is the entry level package of both programmes. Rachel was Liberty League's top earner and has taken over from the previous Mrs. Krider. The CONferences are essentially the same worthless crap except now you have to listen to Shane as the main speaker. Please tell us more.

    2. Fear of the unknown will keep you stuck. You actually wont know and cant comment unless you have experienced it for yourself. Its like everything in life. Don't believe everything you hear. If a change is what your desire, Go out and know for yourself.

      Delete
    3. Hi Dontlisten, there is a big difference between fear of the unknown and actually doing your due diligence. If, after reading this blog or any of the other reviews of Liberty League, Polaris Global, POL ( whatever it's called today) and you decide to part with your money then that is fine. The one thing a prospective investor should not do is DONTLISTEN to the views of anyone other than the scammers themselves. Often family and friends offer good advice so don't go "full boat" without your research.

  6. I don't think it's necessarily a scam as most people think it is, it isn't a pyramid because those are illegal, and if you still think this is one then the corporate structure is actually one as well (your boss has a boss has a boss has a boss has the board of directors has the ceo and if you're entry level you're not going to get a raise to become the CEO any time soon).
    Also, most job sites will not allow ANY business where recruiting is a big part of the job, to post jobs online. Again that's all MLM's, and other hybrid business models, not just this one. A lot of people read reviews and immediately think SCAM and that is beyond uneducated of them.
    The part I don't understand, is the actual product. Where is the value -for customers-in charging (them) 5x the amount of the same quality coaching from elsewhere? That, is the real scam.

    1. Hi Unknown, pyramid schemes are indeed illegal and POL is definitely one of them. Just because they have "products" doesn't negate this. The "products" are only sold to those participating in the scheme, ie new recruits rather than genuine retail customers. In Australia it is very much a buyer beware marketplace for this type of scam as the various local and federal government agencies often feel they have more important issues to deal with.

  7. WOW, I have just been conned by this mob.. Was happy to grow this business slowly. started off paying $2500.00 US to join, thought ok, let's see how this goes, make my money back, make sure it is legitimate and slowly build from there.. I absolutely walked away when my M8 director told me to go and get a loan for $30 0000 so I can sell all their products and make my money back quickly........errrr, but didn't I say to you I was to start slow and see if this thing is real? Money I cannot get back, wasted money but at least I found out sooner rather than later.. I should have listened to my family.

    1. Shame you gave up. you could have made your money back and then some and have a great accomplishment to show for it. I'm afraid it sounds like its not for you. If all the successful people in the world gave in that easy because of what others think there wouldnt be any successful people in the world. Shame, you could have been great!!! I guess you wont know now.

    2. All scammers will blame the victim. You could certainly have made your money back, but in the process you would have had to rip off some other unsuspecting person. The real shame belongs to the scammers.

  8. I’m looking into this at moment and think that it’s up to us or you to put the hard work in (like any business) to reap the rewards. Am I missing something? Sounds like all the people with negative feedback possibly didn’t work hard enough for it?

    1. Hi Erin, Thanks for dropping by. Unfortunately it is almost impossible to sell the POL products to anybody other than those who believe the promises of executive incomes for selling these very same products. You end up competing against the person who recruited you. Both looking for more recruits without any actual retail sales. No matter how hard you work, very few are actually going to fall for it. I just checked out Rachel Krider's latest video and she is pushing the fact that you just need two hours per day to succeed with POL, which is just plain ridiculous.

  9. I think you are scamming all these poor innocent people on here that believe YOUR CRAP. Did your mum ever teach you how talking crap about someone will bring you bad Karma? I think I'm afraid that all these people on here have been duped by your negativity and that you haven't been able to succeed in your life so this blog is to make you feel better and do nothing for anyone else who wants to try to change their lives for the better. I know and have met many successful entrepreneurs who have started their business with them from scratch and guess what??? They have succeeded to live the dream that they wanted. Who are you to try to stop someone trying to reach a dream or goal. Not anyone I would take any notes from anyway. Be wary of this person writing this blog. He is obviously a troubled individual throwing his toys out of the cot for what ever reason. It would be lovely for you to try to be more positive in life because more people will probably follow you. Your negativity is infecting people and not in a good way. Shucks. What would the world be like if you infected everyone???? hmmmmmm. thank god, it wont happen. Shane and Rachel have made a lot of people happy and content in their new lifestyles. Tell me, What have you done thats positive in someones life??? I will wander if you will delete this post????

    1. Hi Dontlisten. Interesting that you think that Shane and Rachel have made a lot of people happy, because the happy people are vastly outnumbered by the unhappy ones. Sure there's a half dozen or so at the top who make a few dollars but even they are living show lives. Just look at Pauline, Simon, Alison, Adam, Lee Ann etc. they really are a miserable bunch, almost as miserable as Rachie herself. Rachel hires a boat in Thailand and you would think she actually owns it the way she carries on. Pathetic really.

    2. Hi Sillery
      Keep up the excellent work proving information to people smart enough to do their due diligence as I have by reading this and other posts about POL.
      The above particularly nasty and unnecessarily abusive comment, accusing you of negativity because you haven't well in your life speaks volumes to me about the character of a someone who has already been brainwashed. Very sad for them but fortunate for me about to fork out a big wad of money. You saved me!
      THANKYOU!

    3. Thank you Susan. I remember what interested me first about Liberty League was it's similarity to an organisation I am very familiar with, namely the "Church" of $cientology. It was only later that I discovered that the Kriders are actually members of the so called church. While the Kriders do not openly push the cult down people's throats, it is apparent that many of $cientology's practices are employed by LL, Polaris, POL or whatever it's called. The brainwashing you have correctly identified is subtle but nonetheless an essential part of convincing new recruits to hand over large sums of money in the hope of future reward - namely the "executive" six figure income.

      Delete
    4. Dontlisten............How much have you made from this program in the last 6 months?.......... I mean actual taxable income. Could you safely go to a lender and borrow against this "business". (please answer honestly)

      There are millions of people who actually believe in Scientology too. Scams come in many guises.

      Delete
    5. Hi there Cadrat. You make a valid point in questioning whether Dontlisten has made much real taxable income from POL. It would appear that even those at the top of the pyramid- the "big earners" in Australia like Pauline O'Halloran, Simon Haggard, Adam Bude, Alison Wheeler etc. actually barely scrape a living from the scam. Even the Kriders just maintain a veneer. The homes and the boat are just leased at the lowest possible price to give an appearance that denies the reality. It's called the "fake it til you make it" mentality, but it's all a sham.

  10. All those people that are happy with the company are part of a team specifically created, by the company, to try and mitigate damages created by those who are speaking out against it. My wife almost bought into it. SCAM SCAM SCAM.

    1. Your wife is very fortunate. The Kriders and their associates are currently targeting women big time. They are pushing the idea that women can make big money while looking after kids and family - all with relatively little effort. Of course you have to part with $30K in order to get "qualified" to make this big money. Sometimes it's the most desperate who fall for the pitch, which is often a financial disaster for the victim and her family.

  11. these thinly disguised mlm scams should be banned from advertising, i reported a few when still advertising on seek, didnt know they have been operating via these other sites, more work to do, accc is a good start.

    1. Hi Jerry, I totally agree. The ACCC is a good starting point in trying to get your money back from these scammers. Unfortunately those at the top of the pyramid (Krider & Oliver) stay away from Australia as much as possible in order to minimise their chance of being brought to justice. For the so called "leaders" in Oz I can guarantee that they have very few assets from which to repay the people they have conned. Nonetheless it is still worth reporting them to the ACCC. It is interesting that the Feds in the USA have recently shut down the MOBE scam which was ironically run by an Aussie called Matt Lloyd McPhee, but which targeted mostly Americans. MOBE essentially ran the same type of scam as POL where you paid big money for "education" which taught you how to sell the same education to others who want to sell it to others etc. etc. Lloyd McPhee is currently crapping himself at the thought of an American jail cell and some very unattractive cell mates, but I suppose in the end you reap what you sow.

  12. i have a second interview scheduled tomorrow with Ursula Linhoff....is she new to the business or an old hand?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ursula's name is new to me but I just did a quick Google search and she fits the profile of those being targeted by POL at the moment. Hopefully she herself hasn't given the scammers too much of her hard earned money.
    If she has, then the only way she can recover some of it is to convince someone such as yourself that you too can make a "six figure income" by giving her the money so you can try to convince somebody else that they can make heaps of money by selling them same stuff to somebody who wants to make another "six figure income" and so on. Retailing of the so called products is impossible without the income opportunity so that makes it a pyramid scam.
    Ask Ursula to show proof of her big income from POL. And be very dubious about claims of executive income from the scam.

  14. Hello guys! I had an interview call last week and I've watched the videos too. What i kept thinking of was: wow these presentations are coming across as Scientology spin off videos. The concept is simple, to put it simply they are screwing you and you have no chance of ever recovering from such a horror financially or with your reputation intact.
    To all the yay sayers: shame on you! How would you like it if someone scammed your family for the fun of making some money?

    1. Hi Shirmone. $cientology promises that in return for your payment of many thousands of dollars, pounds, rand, Bitcoin or whatever currency you like, you will be boosted to infinite levels of emotional and financial prosperity.

      Believe it at your peril.
      The Krider's have previously acknowledged that they are members of the church of $cientology.

Is Polaris Global Marketing a pyramid scam?

There is a well known old saying in the MLM industry, "If you have to ask whether the business opportunity is a pyramid scam, then it definitely is". 
A pyramid scam exists when most of the income generated comes from new people entering the business rather than from sales of any products to genuine consumers not involved in the company. You only have to look at some of the Polaris Global clone websites to realise that they are selling dreams of big "executive" incomes rather than the products produced by Polaris.
 Have a look at amazinglifestyle.com.au which is run by a nice looking lady from Melbourne. She claims you can  1. Work from home. 2. Be your own boss. 3. Have freedom and flexibility. 4. Have financial freedom. The business "opportunity" takes precedence over any retail product that Polaris Global offers.
Polaris Global claims that it actually has products for sale to the general public, namely it's Beyond Freedom course and it's confe…

Greg Strom and even more scientology woo

Polaris global is attempting a rebranding of their flagship course, Beyond Freedom Evolution. Greg Strom, who is the main sidekick of rabid $cientologist Shane Krider has created a new website called the "mile that matters" and in it he tries to lure people into what he calls the pathway programme which is really just a crude rehashing of the failed BFE programme. This of course is to try to extract thousands of dollars from those he is trying to persuade that they too can on sell the programme in typical pyramid scam fashion.

Strom uses a series of podcasts to try to motivate those who have not parted with their cash into a position where they can be fleeced just like dozens of others throughout Australia and other English speaking countries. The podcasts are delivered in a boring monotone and attempt to use what scientists call "woo" or pseudo-scientific rubbish to give an impression of reasoned authority to what is actually just rubbish. Strom uses terms such as …
