Legal Fund for Raquel Peters

January 22, 2013

Raquel Peters is setting up a legal fund, and she are requesting assistance. She needs $2,500 by this Friday to retain an attorney who is willing to help answer and fight for them. Unfortunately, their house is currently in foreclosure, and she and Mark don’t have any money. The attorney knows this and is willing to work on an hourly basis. If she can’t pay, she will have represent herself against Eric Blomdahl. While she is willing to do this, having legal assistance would be beneficial and preferable. The $2,500 represents 10 hours of this attorney’s time; with his help, she hopes to get the Blomdahl lawsuit thrown out.

If you are interested in supporting Raquel’s legal fund financially, please contact either Raquel Peters or Melanie Morgan on Facebook.


Update January 23, 2013: Here are details on the bank account that Raquel has set up. Note that withdrawals from this account require two signatures.

We have a bank account set up for a legal fund. You can send a check or money order to:

Attn: Cindy Wade
c/o Raquel Peters
Badger Bank
1003 South Main St.
Jefferson, WI 53549

Please write the check or money order to Raquel Peters.

We set the account up to have to be signed by me and another person at the same time. Donations will be a gift to pay legal fees and only will be used to pay attorney fees to defend against Team lawsuits. For protection on the account from hackers etc. the other person’s name on the account will not be mentioned here. That person was chosen so you can know checks and balances are in place on the account and Melanie will oversee the balance sheet monthly. Deposits will be made by the bank.

You may also donate via Western Union or Moneygram but be sure to check on the fees first. If you choose to go that route please get account numbers and routing numbers from Melanie or I on FB.

Anything you can give will help us keep our freedom of speech and bring out the truth. Thank you all for considering helping. This means more than you will ever know!

    Any hope of a counter suit to get the $2,500 back after the jokers suit is tossed to the curb? It makes me sick that he will still gain some victory by taking the money out of our pockets after he is laughed out of court.

    We really need to support Raquel. She has gone above and beyond in standing up for truth and getting the word out about what really goes on behind the scenes at Team. How many of us wish we would have known all she knew earlier? Let’s support her so we can get the word out publicly and save others.

    Imagine if she is able to get Eric’s tax records public!

    Thank You!

    Freedomhaha~

    I agree, a class-action would seem to end this tragedy.

    I hear you. EB knows there is NO money to be gotten but yet he is going after it and that isn’t the reason for him suing. EB and his “mentors” I don’t believe ever wanted that! I believe they have a chief goal in mind and it isn’t getting money from the Peters because there is none..so that is a no-brainer! Apparently, These guys want history to repeat itself.

    Lawsuits, suing critics, whitewashing, gagging, everything they said they hated about Amway..now apparently they didn’t really mean they believed in freedom of speech when they needed that for their defense, it seems this is their style of conflict resolution.

    Raquel is no longer on facebook, as far as I can tell

  5. January 22, 2013 11:24 am

    Dan – Did you click on the link? Her Facebook page is right there in the post. We’ve patiently answered all your questions about Raquel in previous comments, yet you continue to ask these same types of questions in subsequent comments. If you continue this line of commenting, I will be moderating your comments in the future.

    Just messaged back and forth with Raquel on FB. She is currently getting an account set up to receive funds for her legal bills. I didn’t want to post in the comment section because of the Team trolls out there. If you feel it’s ok to go public then please do. Thanks for all you do,

    Ya Melanie that was me, Amthrax….when I click on her name at the top of this, it says page not found. The maroon colored Raquel Peters name, that’s what it says when I click on it……PAGE NOT FOUND 404

    No it’s not part of an MLM, it’s through North American Bancard.

  13. January 22, 2013 12:10 pm

    Dan – https://www.facebook.com/raquel.peters.710 If that doesn’t work, do a search for her on Facebook to find her. Or provide your Facebook information and have them contact you.

    @Dan – Then I have no idea why FB is returning a 404 error page for you when you click on Raquel’s link. When you go to Melanie’s page, can you see Raquel on her list of friends? What happens when you click on that link?

    All you do at the top of your own fB page search bar is type: Orrin Woodward and before you get done with the name, Raquel’s anti-team page comes up.

    Dan she probably has her settings on private that is why you can’t see it, unless she has accepted a friend request from you. I accepted your friend request and that is why you see mine so unless she does, you won’t be allowed to.

  27. Melanie Morgan permalink
    January 22, 2013 2:27 pm

    But you still can send her a private message even if you are not friends.

    “Is Orrin Woodward’s Life/Team business destructive/”..that facebook page should be public you can also send private messages there.

  29. January 22, 2013 2:42 pm

    Dan – Please move the topic of contacting Raquel offline. Let’s steer the discussion back towards Raquel’s legal fund. As Melanie mentioned, you can message the administrators of the LIFE TEAM Destructive Facebook page to contact her.

    Is there a paypal account that a donation could be sent to?

    January 22, 2013 9:02 pm

    I agree Amthrax – let’s not get off topic – Raquel needs our help, and needs it fast. I know many people reading this have often thought ‘something needs to be done about Orrin & Crew”

    Guys…..something is being done and Raquel is right out on the front line. Let’s support her financially. Please, don’t just read this and think about giving. Actually make a contribution.

    Obviously, large contributions help, but hey, $25, $50 or even $10 helps. If you like this site, please donate to Raquels fund before Friday!

  32. Melanie Morgan permalink
    January 22, 2013 9:12 pm

    Hey guys Raquel will be getting all information tomorrow on here. There will be a bank account you will be able to deposit in, along with a P.O. box number if you need to send a check or M.O. rather than deposit.

    Also if you want to send M.O. or check, she will be supplying Bank Address also.

    Thanks Guys, You are all amazing for helping, this means A LOT, and NTFM is right. This is not to be a pressure donation so please if you can; do and do what you can.

    Please keep praying also and spread the word.

    I will be copying this also on the FB page.

  33. January 23, 2013 8:58 am

    Melanie & Raquel

    Thanx for being in the frontline as yo’ll are. We are standing with you Raquel. What you are doing is noble and just. It could not have a more capable person carrying this mantle.

    It is therefore imperative that a donations system be setup STAT! Paypal is the easiest, simplest and fastest I can think of. I implore you to set one up after you read this. It takes less than 10 minutes and it will be ready to start donations receipt. All it takes is your email. Then share the email address so we can send in donations and start accumulating cash in there. Thereafter, add a bank card & a bank account number in order to drop the cash into a bank account. If you need help with this please do not hesitate to revert.

    Since this process will obviously last beyond this Friday then explore other mechanisms to receive donations such a Dwolla (similar to paypal), http://www.events.org/ and websites that facilitate donations setup. http://www.idealware.org/articles/few-good-online-donations-tools

  34. January 23, 2013 9:02 am

    Make sure your setup of at least two or three donations setup spans to accommodate as many people as is possible within their established habits. Towards that end here are some other resources http://mashable.com/2011/03/14/social-good-fundraising-tools/

    I live in the credit card world, it is my job and I do it every day. Although Exambots reply is good, paypals percentages on credit card donations will eat up alot of the profits. There are cheaper , better, and more secure ways to accept donations.

    As manufacturer/seller, have been with paypal since the very beginning of it’s inception. Per transaction it’s 2.9% + 30 cents….if you accept CC’s over the phone, you’re paying, too. If you do personal transactions as a gift, I don’t know if they charge that much, OR if you transfer money that’s actually sitting in your paypal acct as a personal gift transaction. Dan, my question is: what services out there are actually free and don’t carry the Visa or MC charges for doing transactions if people are actually using credit or debit cards?

    Answer——-none, you should know that

  38. January 23, 2013 10:23 am

    A regular Paypal user (not merchant acct) is a no brainer here. If I want to push say 30 bucks to Raquel’s paypal email she can expect approximately +/- $28.80 net. Purely a paypal-to-paypal transaction via email, it’s convenient and cheap for both parties. This is before she later institutes merchant accounts, etc.

    Besides a simple 5 minute registration with a name and an email will setup a paypal account. I reckon merchant accounts must take more time than that before they can fully start accepting donations? Again a paypal is a no brainer-it does not carry any more fees than that. If I am wrong you can correct me.

    The idea is to start accumulating cash in there the fastest way possible while setting up merchants accounts, etc. Time is a very critical factor here if we are to see this exercise materializing collections within the next hour and most certainly by Friday.

    P/S
    Just came across another site that’s worth looking into chipin.com.

    I agree with Ex-Ambot – lets get a paypal account set up today!!!!! Everyone knows how to use it. and if we all share it with our friends, she should start receiving money tonight. Raquel – please get a paypal account setup today!!!!!!! and then post it

    @No team: it’s not as fast as you think on PP, either. They have to verify accounts, too. It’s not instantaneous, at least it wasn’t for me.

    @Dan31: Yes, I DID know that–was just being polite.

  42. ageofwisdom51 permalink
    January 23, 2013 10:56 am

    You are all amazing, Thanks!

    We appreciate all your suggestions and obviously want to make it as broad to everyone’s habits and convenience, as ExAmbot pointed out but need it to be as efficient and cost effective as possible.

    Raquel, I know is working on this as we speak, was at least getting something with the bank account and P.O. box this morning. I am sure all will be considered so that it is as convenient for everyone if all possible.

    Thanks for your patience and will be getting this up asap so this can get going and then we can expand the options too.

    Can’t thank you enough.. You guys are the BEST! 🙂

    P.S. watch for update within the hour, she has some info. Thanks a bunch! 🙂

    Thanks, I agree this could be the quickest way and there is an immediate sense of urgency at least for the retainer. We will get on it.

  45. January 23, 2013 11:55 am

    @Wisdom

    A Paypal account is a two fold setup – the regular user account, that’s instant. It was for me. Adding a checking account (for withdrawal purposes) is the process of verifying, yes does take some 1-3 days. While that is being executed the regular paypal user acct. could have been collecting cash or more appropriately harvesting $$$ by now. And I am not even talking about a merchant account. Let’s get this going without further delay.

  46. January 23, 2013 12:25 pm

    FYI – I’ve updated the original post to include the address and bank information.

  47. Melanie Morgan permalink
    January 23, 2013 12:31 pm

    ExAmbot this info will be on here as soon as Raquel can return home so be watching for it, it might be a bit yet, but will get up today, so thanks for your patience and especially your support.

    Raquel wants everyone to know she apologizes for the urgency but she has never been to court or sued of course, they thought that it would have been dismissed when they sent in the answer to the courts or at least just get a court date, but in the mean time EB attorney basically shot back with expecting them to answer more again before the court date that they set up.

    The “answering” to the complaint has became a bit much so I hope she will be able to retain this attorney.

    You who are praying, keep it up!

    One last thing, the P.O. box has been put off, unless it proves to be totally necessary there won’t be one for now. Directly to the bank is much cleaner and more efficient,

  50. January 25, 2013 9:58 am

    This is good. You can make it socially geared – register the email at chipin.com and post the widget at your FB, etc page. The site also allows a visual to keep track of the $$$ goal for everyone participating. Don’t forget to explore google checkout.

  51. January 25, 2013 11:31 am

    We The People are standing with you. I encourage everyone to contribute to Raquel’s legal fund if you haven’t done so already. If you prefer a different medium of submittance if you will, please indicate your preference. LIEf/OW low low suit is not directed at Raquel only but it’s an attempt at everyone who believes in freedom of speech, certainly everyone who’s expending their effort to shed light on MLM cults, and that is basically us all on this board. Let’s do this part as best as I know we can while Raquel does the other part as we await to hear good news of victory fro her.

    Raquel, I am sure you have traffic on your FB page that would click on a donation button for the fund. One needs to go up and displayed prominently at the top of the page. I am not FBky but I know it’s ez enough to do it. Meanwhile, can somebody shed light on how to place a chipin.com widget/button on Raquel’s FB page or any other that would do the same?

  52. January 25, 2013 11:56 am

    Is the boat on CL and other places?

    FUNDING IDEAS
    We can also do other things like sell things we don’t need on eBay, etc. For instance if you have remnants of MonaVie bottles eBay them and contribute the proceeds to the fund.

    What other ideas can we share here?

    I know the Peter’s are grateful for all your support and prayers and by continuing to do just that, it is the best for them. I know we all want justice, and see this for what it is, but they are being advised and it would not be in there best interest to report if there was anything to report.

    I know you will all understand this, so keep praying. God Speed.
