Open Letter to the Lyoness failures Thomson & Rowlison!

The two accomplices Jef Rowlison and Chris Thomson have once again revealed their ridiculousness with their statement of 21 November 2019.

If you both had character, a sense of responsibility, and the ability to be a reputable business executive, you would not block all BECM Inc. mail addresses, which resembles an admission of guilt. Or do you want to play hide and seek? You would want to find a solution for the benefit of your customers instead of behaving like stubborn children whose lollipops have been taken away.

For this reason, in the name of and on behalf of BECM Inc., I turn to you two Lyoness clowns with an “Open Letter”.

The assertion made that Craig Wotton was sacked from the position of Managing Director of Lyoness Australia Pt Ltd is also false, Mr Wotton was responsible for the launch of Lyoness in Australia and was not only the first Managing Director but also the first member of the scheme.

Mr Wotton’s launch was extremely successful and resulted in over 100,000 members joining Lyoness in Australia.

When it came to Mr Wotton’s attention that members of the board had met over Lyoness being taken to court in Austria on criminal grounds of “Make Public Offer Without Financial Prospectus” which was in direct connection to advertising campaigns similarly to the proposition being offered to Australian members and that a long list of regulators were investigating Lyoness across Europe Mr. Wotton resigned from the position of Managing Director of Lyoness Australia Pty Ltd. to protect his credibility as he realised that he could no longer trust other members of the board.

That you, Chris Thomson, in your recent position as a delegate of the Swiss Lyoness Europe AG, are writing when it comes to members from Australia, USA, Canada, South Africa and Asia, is already very telling.

One obviously does not dare to write to us from the operational headquarters in Austria, as BECM Inc. would immediately have a plea.

First of all, it is stated that the members are represented by BECM Inc with a written proxy. Before using the services of BECM Inc., the members repeatedly had tried withdrawing their money from the Lyoness Ponzi scheme. The worldwide subsidiaries always react the same way to requests from members. Either they do not respond at all or with a standardized two-page letter in which refunds with reference to countless changed terms and conditions are categorically rejected.

No one at Lyoness is seriously caring about the problems of members. With pithy “slogans of persistence” money is being pressed from the members and whoever refuses to pay, is dropped or his/her member accounts are blocked. This practice is handled equally in Australia and Germany.

The testimonials on the website at http://www.bekm.us/rating/ are all correct, these members were paid by BECM Inc. Chris Thomson and Jef Rowlison do know that, otherwise these gentlemen would have filed a lawsuit. The only thing these two supporters of a Ponzi scheme can do is promulgate some unverified half-knowledge, with the goal of defaming BECM Inc. and my person.

They claim that BECM Inc. would work with fictitious claims. That’s wrong! It would be easy to prove by naming only one person from the testimonials who was not a Lyoness member and did not demand a repayment of the money deposited with Lyoness. You cannot do that, and you know it.

I should have committed a similar fraud in Germany? What is correct is that: I have reported the pyramid scheme Lyoness to the public prosecutor’s office in Cologne, naming hundreds of German Lyoness victims.

You further claim that I was sentenced to pay € 2,917.38 to Lyoness. What is correct is that: With a “legal sleight of hand” Lyoness has obtained a default judgment in an Austrian court. This verdict has been suspended in the meantime under Az. C 1010/18f-29 and Lyoness has to refund me the sum. This sentence is currently being enforced by me against Lyoness in Austria! You should get better informed by the Austrian Lyoness headquarters and their lawyers!

Your constant demands for paid-out members to prove that their money has been disbursed is a sign of your panic. Just to make things clear: to name your Swiss marketer Ede Buser as a reference only proves your incompetence, your incompetence and your desperation.

As Lyoness lawyers themselves will confirm, my action was dismissed solely on the basis of jurisdiction. That Ede Buser was right with his allegations was not established. He should translate the decision! Here, another complaint has already been filed by me. See also: http://www.bekm.us/lyoness-lawsuit-against-ben-ecker-with-partial-judgment-of-the-bg-vienna-from-06-11-2019-dismissed/ )

Currently, it is more like you two prodigies and the spelling artist Ede Buser are so desperate that you are competing to see who is lying best.

BECM Inc. will continue to pay out to Lyoness victims and this is all that counts.

Finally, the letter I wrote to you both on 23 November 2019:

Lyoness lawsuit against Ben Ecker with partial judgment of the BG Vienna from 06.11.2019 dismissed!

On 01 July 2016, our article “Despite warning: Lyoness still advertises with Mastercard” was published. This also went through the press.

Lyoness claimed to have no idea of a warning and presented itself as a victim of a third-party card provider. In fact, the ominous third-party was an employee of Lyoness itself, who founded the “MyCard” in Gibraltar, thus enabling Lyoness to use it for marketing over years.

After this lie of Lyoness was discovered and published by Ben Ecker, he was sued for injunctive relief, damages, etc. and Lyoness published this under “Lyoness sues its critics”. (BG Vienna Az. 11 Cg 75 / 6s-23)

Since then, the trial has been postponed continuously and the proceedings have been protracted. After a good three years, now it came to a partial judgment (Az 11 Cg 75 / 16s-52) in the matter.

In order to make Swiss Lyconet marketer Ede Buser understand it correctly, here the following note: Defendant = Ben Ecker & Applicant = Lyoness Europe AG

In the partial judgment it was decided:

• The claim that the defendant owes the plaintiff, as of now, the statement and / or dissemination of the statement that

• Lyoness is misusing the reputation of its affiliates for the purpose of recruiting customers, and / or

• the payments made by Lyoness to the partner companies come from a criminal offense and / or

• Customers are forced to make further investments with the promise of a residual income through the cashback function

and / or to refrain from making similar statements, is rejected.

The claim, the defendant must revoke the allegations that

• Lyoness misuses the reputation of the partner companies for the purpose of recruiting customers,

• the payments made by Lyoness to the partner companies come from a criminal offense,

• customers are forced to make further investments with the promise of a passive income through the cashback function

• Lyoness is lying

demonstrably within 4 weeks to those partner companies of the plaintiff who have received letters from the defendant which contain such statements, in particular NORDSEE Gesellschaft mbH and UNITO Versand & Dienstleistungen GmbH, the Landesfeuerwehrverband Steiermark, as well as all companies which have been contacted via E-mail dated 25 October 2016 at 13.15 with the subject “request regarding partnership with Lyoness”, in writing by e-mail and registered letter (the word revocation in bold, the names of the parties and their representatives in bold and in spaced letters), is rejected.

Aulicio Mining Inc., partner company of GGMTrading GmbH with connections to Austrian Foreign Ministry?

Aulicio Mining Inc. in the South American country Guyana is mining gold, but the company cannot really be found.

According to the companies’ register, the purpose of GGMTrading GmbH, located in Austria, is the trading in all kinds of goods, management and utilisation of rights, especially of mining rights as well as the holding and administration of shares. At least this company does exist.

The sole holder (100% shareholder) and managing director is Katarina Kollarova who had previously been self-employed in the “health sector”.

The founder of GGMT is said to be Mr. Helmut Kaltenegger who had, among others, tried his hand with “WLM GmbH” (Wellness Lifestyle Management) and “juice of herbs against heart attacks” etc. On 14 March 2017, WLM GmbH was renamed in “Protecforall GmbH” and on 3 May 2019, it was finally wound up due to lack of funds according to § 40 FBG. Just like GGMT is now, WLM GmbH was registered at Naaffgasse 80/2, in Vienna. Earlier, Helmut Kaltenegger was in the headlines with “AH Futura”. Here, clients had to buy an overpriced coffee system (about 4,000.- euro) from the company AH Futura in order to become a sales partner (franchisee). The purchase price was usually debt financed via a bank recommended by AH Futura. In the end, a lot of clients found themselves confronted with payment requests or even court claims lodged by the bank. Some of the clients were not even aware of the fact that they had signed a loan agreement and haven’t even contacted a bank themselves. On 15 September 2018, AH Futura Sales GmbH also was wound up due to lack of funds according to § 40 FBG.

Aulicio Mining Inc.

The current partner company of GGMT GmbH, Aulicio Mining Inc. in Guyana, cannot be transparently be found, just like it was the case with Helmut Kaltenegger’s previous companies. The registered owner of Aulicio Mining Inc. is Ms. Olga Aulicio from Guyana. She is neither related directly or by marriage nor married to Mr. Alexander scheller. And yet now it would be important for the recruited clients (buyers of mining rights) to be provided with transparent and verifiable company information. Although there is a “Certificate of Incorporation” of Aulicio Mining Inc., the company cannot be found in any internationally available company register. After a telephone inquiry at the “Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority“ (DCRA) in Georgetown/Guyana, the registration of Aulicio Mining Inc. has not been confirmed yet. The letter of request we sent to DCRA has been left unanswered so far. It should be in the interest of GGMT that the mining fee that has to be payed to the government of Guyana actually has been payed and this also should be published. This certainly would give respective clients (buyers of mining rights) the feeling of security.

Originally planned ELDO-COIN

According to our information, there was no ELDO-COIN and it also has never been programmed! Stories about the ELDO-COIN and their alleged sale are said to be made up completely. Further investigation will show whether these “stories” came from GGMT or its former partner company. Mining rights were offered until the end of January 2019, then they were discontinued without substitution. The buyers of mining rights voluntarily switched to buying gold and were held harmless.

Supposed connections with the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

GGMT and its sales partners advertise themselves with a supposed connection to the Austrian Foreign Ministry and a director called Alexander Scheller. Meanwhile, we found out that Mr. Alexander Scheller does not have any rights or function within Aullicio Minging Inc. since he I still working for the Austrian Foreign Ministry. He holds the post of a speaker of the Library for International Affairs. Mineralogy and geology have been hobbies of the 62-years-old for a long time.

We also received the hint that several images on the website of GGMT in connection with Aulicio Mining Inc. were photomontages.

But there is definitely no cooperation with the Austrian Foreign Ministry. This was confirmed by the Ministry:

“The Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs does not cooperate in principle with companies for commercial purposes. We can exclude such a cooperation with the mentioned company.

Peter Guschelbauer, speaker of the Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs.”

Further investigations will explain in which way Alexander Scheller from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who is mentioned on the website of GGMT, is involved in the case.

Swiss Lyoness foundations „Child & Family Foundation” and “Greenfinity Foundation” deleted by Supervisory Authority due to “destitute.” Foundations were “bled out and penniless.”! (Part 1)

On the websites of its two foundations, MyWorld replaced the Swiss foundations with the Austrian associations, whereby the name “Lyoness” vanished. Quietly and discretely, Lyoness/MyWorld actors let the deletion of the Swiss foundations happen and exchanged the Swiss foundations named in the imprint with Austrian associations of the same name. According to our information, MyWorld has never announced the official deletion of the two foundations.

The Federal Office of Justice (BJ), Swiss Federal Commercial Registry Office (EHRA) publishes:

Child & Family Foundation

“The foundation is dissolved according to the Supervisory Authority’s decree of 14 December 2018.The foundation will be deleted.” This decree was issued on 24 December 2018 and published on 9 April 2019.

Greenfinity Foundation

“The foundation is dissolved according to the Supervisory Authority’s decree of 15 January 2019. The foundation will be deleted.” This decree was issued on 15 January and published on 4 July 2019

Large sums of money exported from Switzerland

Parallel to the foundations, Austrian associations of the same name (Child & Family Foundation, founded on 23 January 2004 and Greenfinity Foundation, founded on 29 December 2016) have been established.

It has always been conspicuous that so-called foundation travellers from Switzerland started their trips, e.g. to Tanzania, from Vienna, sometimes bringing with them five-figure sums of money. Have these sums been declared at the departure from Switzerland? We are going dig deeper.

Advertisement continues despite deletion

Although the Child & Family Foundation had already been dissolved by an official decree of 14 December 2018, they kept on advertising. For example, on 14 August 2019 the foundation was promoted with “All-in-one drinks for the Philippines” via the Austrian Press Agency (APA).

In principle, it is laudable when a company is involved in community work and supports those who need help, but Columbian drug lords also used to build schools and churches.
