In Response To: Need help evaluating a Gifting Program (Clay)
Just thought I would share the communication I've been having with Robert.
Not a solid enough defense. From what I can all cash gifting programs are full of traps and pitfalls.
I will not participate. It's simple wisdom....I'm not going to get involved with anybody or anything that cannot establish itself as having integrity or being trustworthy. This is very shady stuff....that as far as I'm concerned....has a curse attached to it.
I think I would do better to just go to the gambling boat. Maybe your living better than you ever thought you would but there is nothing here that makes me think I will.
Reply from Robert:
There is no defense needed here my friend. You do not have to convince anyone to join our program.
Your simple wisdom is not wisdom. You are making a judgement call without having all the facts.
The program has been successful for over 9 years for many reasons.
You cannot run a program successfully this long if the program did not have integrity.
This is also explained in the Q&A calls which also talk about the integrity of our program.
Sadly you are mistaken and I am sorry you have a closed mind.
I cannot help you if you will not look at all the facts before making your decision to join or not.
I hope you find what you are looking for and I wish you all the best.
Can anyone help me evaluate a gifting program? The website that was

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
