Here are some more letters that Raquel has been posting on the Facebook page to bolster her arguments. Click on the images to see them larger and to read Raquel’s captions.
Here is a copy of one of the affidavits Mark and I were solicited to write by our upline who is now suing us. He said he wasnt soliciting us and then told us what to say and then told to get our downline that we coukd trust to do the same! We were told to send these to the Team office to be sent off to our state’s Attorney Generals office! So all the leaders did….as we were told. Disturbing that the same upline who told us to write this also taught us to hit the customer reporting button when buying from ourselves through our shopping portal Quixtar (Amway)! Team never taught us to focus on selling Quixrar products to outside customers! Heck they never even said Quixtar in recruiting meetings! We were all misled that Team was the business! These were written in 2007 after we built the business for 4 years and we were in Sapphire qualification in Quixtar and Round Tables in Team. This was done at the time the Team PC sued Amway for being a pyramid scheme! Dan Hawkins was also coached by PC and other leaders to meet with Wisconsin AG to say Amway was a pyramid scheme and he did. Perhaps the reason for his later reward? P.S. This really discusts me I couldn’t see at the time that Orrin and the Team training system was just as responsible as Quixtars’ over- pricing…..Ughh….!
Does anyone believe Mr Blomdahl, who most likely recieved my resignation letter along with Guzzardos, is blatanlty lying about Mark and I not resigning from Quixtar because of our greed and wanting to get our bonus on his blog article called Criticism? The TRUTH is we lost our $10, 000 bonus and a Q12 trip from Quixtar that took years to earn…. due to resigning. Mr. Blomdahl can also see our sign up date in Monavie as we are listed below him! He knows, along with all of his upline that we got registered 1 DAY after HIM using our real names because WE were free of our 6 month contract! The Samuels know generally when we got regiatered too based on their date! They were not free of their 6 months, so they got an LLC to hide from Quixtar. Funny Mr Blomdahl stopped harassing us to register people to wait until the Samuels’ LLC was in place so the Samuels could keep their spot! Of course Blomdahl and the Samuels didn’t mind anyone else in our/their team losing their spots! But WE did! ( If you’d like to read about the MV registration fiasco read our story at http://www.amthrax.wordpress.com
) Blomdahl is blatantly LYING to everyone! …..But don’t worry….. I have a screen shots of his lies to show the judge. Here is our follow up email to Quixtar on our resignation. We resigned on September 19, 2007 as Sapphires, Q12 qualifiers and Team Round Tables, I believe.
This email announces Orrin Woodward’s injunction was lifted and he could speak to us again……Funny Mr. Blomdahl must have amnesia as he fails to mention Orrin and Laurie Woodward met with the leaders in the Guzzardo organization in their hotel room at a Major, WHILE UNDER THE INJUNCTION!! I remember Mr Blomdahl, Renee Oettinger , the Morgans, us, the Hawkins and more being in that hotel room with Orrin! Defying a judges order…… Of course we thought we were fighting the big bad corp Quixtar….jeez. Do Team leaders believe they are above the law or that it’s ok to decieve people?
Part of an email Raquel Peters wrote to Laurie Woodward on June 24, 2008 on how the registration fiasco going into Monavie affected her team and her husband.
July 2, 2008. After noticing we were being paid unfairly in Team Profit sharing in 07/08, the registration fiasco created by our upline going into MV and while being blackballed out of speaking at Ladies Leadership and our home opens by Guzzardo, the Samuels were then directed to build a downline distributors’ second leg instead of their taproot. This was opposite of Teams’ teaching. We knew this was happening because the Samuels registered Raquel’s uncle in a downlines’ second leg in MV. Here is an email we sent to Orrin after speaking with George. Much discord was being created in our team by our upline. 6 years of hard work was over a few months being destroyed. See the next post for Orrin’s response.
Orrin’s response. John, Mark and I did eventually meet with George with no real resolution.
We spoke at Team seminars all over the country including: Washington, Iowa, Escanaba MI, Idaho, Iowa, Texas, Atlanta, North Carolina. We also hosted and or spoke at opens, seminars, Men’s and Ladies Leadership in Wisconsin all thise years. Here is one of our speaking contracts from 2006. We were paid up to $2300 to speak for Team seminars and also paid for doing open meetings. We started speaking at the Milwaukee opens @ 2004 and launched the Madison Wisconsin open. When starting in 2003 the Milwaukee Open was @ 20 people. In 2007 the Milwaukee and Madison Opens had grown to a rough estimate of @ 250-300 regular attendees. See next post.
The only person on Samuels’ team that was eligible to speak in May 2008 were Ben and Beth. The Hawkins took care of their team. Ben and Beth were great leaders. They were a few months from Platinums when leaving Quixtar in 2007. There were no other Platinum qualifiers between us and Ben and Beth. (Anyone above Ben needed 2500 (@25 active people) on their lesser leg for 6 months to be Platinums above Ben and Beth who were at 7500 pv.) As you will see below we had to recommend the speakers in our Teams outside of Hawkins group and ironically at the same time many witnessed WE were no longer allowed to speak at our home opens after getting into MV.
Opens we did in May 2007.
Here is a list we kept of our teams phone numbers, who was on system etc. Notice we used a form from the Team of Destiny…now called Team. As was experienced across Team, the majority of these people quit. It was a build and replace business.
Here is another list from our other group made later.
A letter to Laurie Woodward after Beth, Penny and Jammie F and I drove from Wisconsin to Michigan to the Woodwards’ Spanish Mansion to attend a Women of Faith meeting. After the meeting I spoke to Laurie about all that was going on in our team….George not allowing me to speak in Milwaukee or Madison and letting people speak with smaller results, the registration fiasco, the discord our upline and a few downline had sowing in the Samuels team etc. Jammie heard and knew about it all.
Ironically the same weekend I went to the Woodwards, at home we got this email from the team office. They were finally going to let us speak in Madison! Mark called me Sunday on the way home and I was so excited. We had sat in the audience in Madison since early May and it was now July. We had been told it was because we were not Ruby yet most of the speakers weren’t even close to Ruby.
Email 2 about speaking July 19, 2008.
George said NO we werent Ruby.
Letter to Orrin after being at his home and talking with Laurie and then him the next morning. When I spoke with him about George and speaking at open meetings he said the same as you’ll see in the next post….”go Ruby and point out discrepancies to George”. He did nothing to make things fair. We missed Ruby by one case @ 9900 volume while our downline were roughly @ 6, 000 or less points and…t…See More
Orrins reply- he did nothing. We sat out from speaking and continued building our business. (In late August after practically begging the Team office to put us on in Milwaukee or Madison they held a conference call with all of George’s leaders…..and in front of them all they finally put us on the list of open meeting speakers for Milwaukee and Madison.)
Here is a stack of some of the open meeting reports of meetings Mark and/or I did in 2007 for Team. Madison and Milwaukee were our home opens.
Recognition assistants at Major 2006 and stage hosts at other Major Leadership Conventions. Mark and I hosted Seminars in Wisconsin- specifically in Madison and Milwaukee @ monthly from 2004 all the way through October 2008. (We turned down November 2008 as we were attending the Wausau seminar to see the Hubers speak.) After all Team leaders had done (after @ Nov 2008) we could no longer attend or promote Team or their events with a clear conscience. 😦
