Over on the LIFE TEAM Destructive FB page, Raquel Peters has posted scans of back-and-forth emails she had with the TEAM office and Orrin Woodward. These emails bolster her claims that her profit-sharing teams were taken from her and given to someone else.

“After 6 years of building our Team buisiness and supposedly a passive, residual income for building communities, we had our team taken away based on a letter filled with lies and only partial information submitted to Team sadly by my cousin Tim (Jennifer) Samuels. We have been told Tim admitted to his biggest leader, Ben (whom my husband works for) that George Guzzardo told them (Samuels) to send the letter and he shouldn’t have done it. He said something to the effect of we would be voted out of profit sharing soon anyway when the new Team Direcrors contract came out (Summer of 09)! Of course Ben quit knowing Team would take our income after all the work we did. First of all were you EVER told your downline or the PC could take your team after you built it?! And ironically after they screwed YOU over. After the registration fiasco into Mv and then blackballing us out of speaking at our home opens! (More to come on that) Read the subject line and the greeting and tell me if you believe it was solicited by Team leaders? What turbo 10 /Turbo25 on Team would ever think they could move not only themselves but their whole downline including their uplines’ personals out from under their upline who worked for years much longer and harder than they? Were you promised passive, resudual, ongoing, pipeline income from any Team leaders? Tim Samuels, Orrin Woodward, George Guzzardo, Eric Blomdahl or anyone else? Did you know Mr Blomdahl was already our upline and already getting paid on the Samuels team lumped in with the Hawkins? There was no profit sharer between us! Magically after this letter was sent the Morgans witnessed in their Team back office that the Samuels and all of our lesser leg including OUR personals, were taken off of our list and listed by Team seperately under Eric Blomdahl! Mr. Woodward and Mr. Guzzardo approved it! This action was conspired between this geoup of pwople and they knowingly took our ability to be paid off our personals Dan Hawkins and their group- our largest team as well! After years of work and financial sacrifice this happened to us and others including the Morgans! Now Mr. Blomdahl has the gall to sue us, likely backed by Woodward!! I would NEVER do mlm again!

” Here is the inside cover of a book Jammie Fisher gave to me @ January 09 when I was very ill with stress induced breathing problems. This was after I realized I could no longer promote Team due to the unethical behavior that was going on. Jammie knew what happened and saw the unethical things done to us with her own eyes! She was my bestfriend for years! She was with me at the Woodwards’ in Michigan when I told Laurie what happened in the registration and what George was doing. She was in the car on the way home when I was again blackballed out of speaking in Madison by Guzzardo, in July 08. She and Richard saw us sit in the audience month after month in 08 watching our downline with smaller teams speaking, including the Hawkins. They all saw it…. they all knew it was wrong. I grieve for Jammie. The path she chose must be very hard for her. She is no longer behaving like the person I used to know. :( ” Raquel Peters
Here is our response after our team (and income) was taken out of our back office by Team PC and given to our upline. This was done based on the Samules’ letter of hearsay and without notice from the Team office. The team we spent 6 years building was gone and listed under our upline in the Team back office. #1
Our upline Policy Council George Guzzardo approved the change….imagine that! #2
This is a letter sent to the Team office refuting the Samuels letter after Team office and the PC took our team and income. This couple spent years in Team. They called us after the Morgans had been slandered by PC Guzzardo and by then we could no longer promote Team because of the unethical behavior we saw in our leaders. This couole was in our downline in MV and Team.

I should’ve posted this earlier. This is a letter we sent to MV compliance in December 2008. This letter was sent to them after Team paid us and our upline the Morgans unfairly in Team profit sharing in @2008; after the registration fiasco into Mv in March 08; after years of doing open meetings since @2003 and in 2008 being blackballed by PC Guzzardo (with Woodwards’ knowledge) out of speaking…See More — with letter ti MV.

Does this blow your mind? Orrin Woodward wrote this in a letter to Doug DeVoss I believe in 04 or 05? Orrin Woodward knew we only had a .001% chance of going Founders Emerald !! AND it only held a yearly income of @$80, 000 (which after expenses was nothing!!) …. Yet Orrin kept telling Team members this was the best business bar none! All while he raked in the majority of his business income on selling Team tools!! The lifestyle and income claims came from the tool business and not from what was supposed to be the business, Quixtar! Team didn’t even mention Quixtar when showing the plan! OMG! No wonder Te PC almost always promoted the tools! This should fry anyone that was in business with Orrin! I had no idea about any of this until I was out of Team and read it in the lawsuit! I would’ve never built the business with that type of a failure rate! But of course we had no idea! Read blue highlighted area below.
We decide to contact Orrin through email.
Here is the first response from Orrin Woodward. We have caller id and Orrin NEVER called!
Second response by Orrin. Calling downline distributors the Samuels, who are being paid by Team and MV the Peters’ “former customers”….hmm…..were any of you called customers by your upline? What makes them FORMER customers? Because they wrote a letter….?
The Peters’ response to Orrin Woodward. Orrin never called us that we are aware of and he never answered our questions.
THEN the Peters get this invite when they were no longer Team Profit Sharers because one of their teams were taken by the Team office and given to their upline Blomdahl!
The new Directors Contract effectively gave the PC a way to take Team income from leaders who built the PC’s own businesses! Leaders who were promised residual income for YEARS and built the communities were forced to sign the new Directors contract or have their incomes taken. This contract changed profit sharing from a performance/numbers based, residual income to a voted in by your PC, favortism, controlled by your PC income! Don’t forget about the yearly review! …….Just like a J.O.B.! I thought Team claims you own your business? We were no longer Profit Sharers since Team took our team so we asked questions hoping we might finally get some answers…..
Answer from Laurie Stewart about Directors Contract and Profit Sharing.
#17 To Orrin Woodward. Sent on Tuesday July 14, 2009. After taking our team.This is our 4th request to Orrin or the Team office to send us the Team peofit sharing contracts we signed that they refused to give us when we signed them at a Go Diamond weekend in @ 2006. Wait until you see “Mr. Conflict Resolutions” response… Photo taken in negative form to show pink ink better. Click on photos to enlarge and scroll.
Orrin Woodward replies to our email. One at 6:35 pm and one at 7:18pm on July 14, 2009 Do you see something odd about these two emails from a guy who from stage claims he’s a Christian, claims to be a teacher of conflict resolution and leadership? He for years with Team solicited distrubutors into his businesses by selling them (and us) on the hope of passive, residual, ongoing, pipeline income for building a community… uses a mute argument that WE DONT OWN OUR “CUSTOMERS”!! Does he own them since he took them and our pay? Do the Samuels own them? How ludicrous! He again deceptively implies that our downline distributors are our “customers”! Team never had customers outside the network of distributors. Is Orrin hiding something? Orrin knows full well that we built our business that includes now PC Hawkins, Leurquins, Fishers, Grafs and their teams as well as the Samuels and under them! Woodward and our upline continue to make a killing off of all of it! In MV, Team and now Life! Can we say scam? Anyone would be NUTS to follow Woodward or build any business he controls after reading this!
After all the unethical behavior going on behind the scenes in Team and the way we were treated by the Team office and Mr. Woodward and others we didn’t feel we could trust Orrin enough to speak with him on the phone. We wanted every interaction we had documented. We emailed one last correspondence. We shared all this information 1. To clear our name of slander and misinformation from our former involvement in Team. 2. To warn others what can happen when you own nothing in this so called business/mlm. And to warn others what can happen when there are ZERO checks and balances in a heirarchy organization like Team. 3. To warn others Team may not be what it appears to be. 4. To spare other families from the emotional and financial pain we have endured due to our involvement in what we now believe is a destructive group. 5. The truth is the only restitution we have to give others whom we unknowingly hoodwinked into what we once believed in but now see as a scam. Click on photo to read below.
