An additional judgement (case file 21 C 311/15m) of the Vienna District Court for Commercial Matters from 09/08/2016 confirms two previous judgements and consolidates previous rulings that define Lyoness as a pyramid scheme. We expect Lyoness to try to play for time and drag on the process with appeals.
Also in Switzerland a judgement of the Canton of Zug was delivered with brilliant reasons on 09/20/2016.
Oh dear……Lyoness is suing for business and reputational damage. We´re not particularly concerned about this claim, the articles published are well researched and all facts described accordingly.
We don´t want to accept the closing of the criminal investigations by the Austrian Prosecutor´s Office Against Economic Crime and Corruption (WKStA) into suspicions of systematic fraud and pyramid scheme on April 2016 and have therefore involved the Senior Public Prosecutor’s Office (OSTA) and presented a comprehensive disciplinary complaint.
Lyoness likes to adorn itself with borrowed plumes and published the names of several “partners” on its website – e.g. Kika/Leiner, Booking.com, Lego, Microsoft, Nike, Nordsee, OMV, Stiefelkönig, Palmers, Swarovski… and many more. Sometimes these don´t even know about it.
We worked a lot in July this year – we were on the road and did some research on the spot. We travelled to South Africa, the U.S. and India and met with representatives of local authorities and with Lyoness-SMs.
We’ve uncovered the next set of lies, and will soon publish reactions from Lyoness’ “trading partners” to the current articles. When confronted with concrete inquiries, Lyoness is only too glad to represent itself toward the public as a victim of “third-party providers”. This is false, and we can prove it. We have internal e-mails from Lyoness […]
But people have sold country packages for the USA and India, and spoken of “incomparable expansion”. Lyoness customers are eagerly awaiting an explanation as to why Lyoness has almost disappeared in the USA and why India can no longer be found anywhere on their list of countries.
Some time ago we were notified by our customers that, surprisingly, Lyoness is still using the MasterCard name in their advertisements. To cite a concrete example, a member of Lyoness’ network marketing was offered the chance in an e-mail to buy the new “MasterCard Polo Golf Shirt”.
