THE BAD PART IS THAT THEY CANT DO BUSINESS IN AMERICA AND THERE PROMOTER ARE STILL RECRUITING PEOPLE. THE COURT IN BRASIL FOUND THERE BUSINESS TO BE PURE PONZI SCHEME. NO PRODUCT IS BEING SOLD ONLY BRINGING IN NEW PEOPLE PAYING 10K 5K OR 15 K TO MAKE MORE THEN 100% RETURN ON INVESTMENT. READ THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW.

The 2nd Civil Court of Rio Branco upheld a civil action proposed by the prosecutor of Acre, and suspended payments and the accession of new contracts multilevel marketing company Telexfree until the final judgment of the principal action, under penalty of a daily fine R $ 500 thousand.
According to the MEP, the owners of the company are suspected of mounting a financial pyramid. The decision was announced late in the afternoon of Tuesday (18).

On Wednesday (19) the promoter of Consumer Protection, Nicole Gonzalez, gave a press conference where he explained what led the MEP to formalize the complaint. According to her, the Telexfree in Brazil would be doing the recruiting investors and creating a pyramid scheme under the guise of multilevel marketing.

"There are multilevel marketing companies already established in the market as Herbalife, Mary Kay and Tupperware. They work with this system, in the case of Telexfree the interest is not to sell products but to recruit new people," he explains. She believes that about 70 thousand people have contracts with Telexfree in Acre.


Nicole says that the focus of Telexfree in Brazil is not the sale of products or services, but membership new people to feed the payment system. She argues that the alleged product offered by Telexfree, software for performing the connections


"However we are facing a software, that site just register, download and pay to get. Conclude that it is to mask the membership fee," he explains. The prosecutor also said that the payments made by Telexfree actually be a kind of 'repurchase' made by the company of the kits. "If it means we do not need to repurchase the advisers," he emphasizes.

Decision affects the whole country
Nicole says the decision by Judge Thais Borges affects the promoters of Telexfree across the country or outside. She says that the measure was taken to prevent new people end up involved in the scheme and may be harmed. She says it was made an order blocking the bank accounts of members of the administrative Telexfree.
The company shall provide within two days on your page, a "pop-up", informing the court decision, and modify your system, so as not to allow new registrations through the "back offices".
The prosecutor said he sent a copy of the decision to Precinct Fraudações and Forgeries (Defa) investigating the company in the Holy Spirit.

Regarding other multilevel marketing companies that emerged after Telexfree, prosecutor says for now they are not being investigated. Nicole said that now the MPE has 30 days to file the action page.
Telexfree tries to reverse decision
The company published on the afternoon of Wednesday (19) on its website a video explaining to customers and publishers that the company has not yet been officially notified of the decision but that is taking all measures to overturn the injunction of Justice of Acre.
"Transparency has always been and always will be the foundation of this company. We have read in the media, have not yet been officially notified of the whole decision. Juridification is working to overturn the injunction," says Carlos Costa, director of marketing Telexfree.
The company's lawyer, Horst Fouchs, Rio Branco is to follow the case. "We know the process to take the necessary action. After we are fully acquainted process, we can even manifest in a more complete way," said Fouchs.

THIS IS ONE OF THERE LEADER WEBSITE BELOW, STILL PROMOTING RECRUITMENT.
http://faithsloan.com/2013/06/20/telexfree-closed-in-brazil/

THIS COMPANY HAS NO OFFICE IN THE USA, NO PHONE, NO WAY TO COMMUNICATE TO. AND YET THEY MANAGE TO ENROLL CLOSE TO 15K IN AMERICA IN JUST 12 MONTHS.

THE FEDERAL GOVERMENT NEEDS TO GET INVOLVED. FROM THE WEBSITE ABOVE END THROUGH RESEARCH I FOUND THE LEADERS ARE: Jim Merrill, Steve Labriola, Carlos Costa-Rodrigues, Randy Crosby, and Santigo De La Rosa

Also this is not the first time Carlos (Carlos Costa-Rodrigues) has been before the courts relative to a HYIP/investment scheme or pyramid
Then he has changed his name?
I didn’t find any “Carlos Costa-Rodrigues” in the document, only …
Sanderley R. De Vasconcelos
a/k/a Sann Rodrigues
a/k/a Sanderley Vasconcelos (“De Vasconcelos”)
The other defendant was Rev. Victor Sales
a/k/a Victor Williams
a/k/a Victor Sales DeBrito (“Sales”)
The scam itself was about Universo
f/k/a FoneClub Incorporation (Incorporated in Massachusetts)
I believe it’s a dead end, but the case had some similarities to TelexFree.

June 25th, 2013 at 10:16 am (Quote)
According to Acre prosecutor’s office official news, the appeal by TelexFree has been denied (by a different judge).

SOMETHING BIG. THEY CLAIM TO HAVE PARTNERED WITH BEST WESTERN. "BUT In a statement, Best Western inform that has NO partnership with Telexfree, but only a contractual relationship specific to lend its brand, and that before taking responsibility over any enterprise does a full inquiry on the business.In case that any irregularity is proven against the company that purchases the hotel, the company [Telexfree] may lose its right to use the brand, which is already said in the contract. "

TelexFree is NOT a scam. They have been cleared by the US Securities and Exhcange Commission and by the Federal Ministry of Finance in Brazil. The state of Acre tried to shut them down; the Federal government of Brazil is not in agreement. TelexFree is now in over 100 countries and winning approval of those governments. I live in Fresno, California and I am now earning over $10,000 monthly (3rd month) and the NEW Compensation Plan was implemented on March 10, 2014. TelexFree's new Compensation plan is now fully compliant with US Trade laws.

You are nothing more than a sharlitan and a ball faced liar.
TelexFree is now in over 100 countries and winning approval of those governments.
This statement alone is a lie and can easily be debunked by five minutes on the internet.
As a matter of fact it's being shut down and investigated all over the world. accused of criminal activities that include money laundering. Go to behindmlm.com to access researched articles that go back as far as Telexfrees business starting in Brazil up until the recent mob invasion on their closet office in Marlb. Mass. Get the truth from a place that doesn't profit off you like Richard the schmo here
And FYI I'm not from Brazil but USA and have been to the office of Telex in Mass and no, it's not the whole building as shown in the manipulative propaganda they put out but and office the size of a closet. Oh, sorry they just moved out of the closet into an office the size of a kitchen. And they're a Billion dollar company? lol

this scam is big and as soon as they get done going to the U.S. they'll be off to another country to drum up the fines and penalties the previous Country imposes on them.
You all should contact Congress because they need to make laws against this and they won't mind a bit because they can freeze their assets and impose fines on them.....

Have you actually seen the Compensation Plan or how TelexFree works? I have and I make lots of money; so do my 3 of my children who are in college (Accounting Majors). The US Securities and Exchange Commission responded to complaints initiated by the folks in Acre, Brazil and have found no fault with TelexFree. The same goes with the State of Massachusetts. Most of these posts are coming from folks in Brazil who are not part of the business and want to see it closed. I can tell by their *** translations. Their English really sucks!!!

They don't "take" anything. We gladly pay because we will make $2,700(and more) over the cost of joining. The payout is HUGE and so is the potential. I am making more money than I ever have! Find me on Facebook & I'll gladly show you how.

Brazil stop because other phone companys like Oi.The goverment thing is a pyramide but they not sure.Telexfree already prove to the senator that is not a scam, now the goverment is going against the Judge that stop telexfree without a prove of being a pyramide, even the governor of acre is helping telexfree get this situation resolve. The product is a Voip just like skype, you pay skype to call cell phone 10 dollar deposit,you run out your ten dollars you need to put more to make the phone call. Telex free is 49 a year and is not own by google like skype was sold for 8.5 billion. People talks to much with out knowledge of anything. here is the link of Carlos Costa at Brasilia with the senators.Its in portuguese by the way.

Yeah because someone who doesn't spell well can't be a critical thinker. Hmmmm that stands to reason...lol
Your spelling is fabulous...you found your "check spelling" button didn't ya? : )
Your post on the other hand may be grammatically correct however just about every statement in it falls under misinformation or out right lies wich can be easily researched on the net in 5 min.. Think I'll stick with the credibility of the ones that failed the spelling b in 2nd grade.

First of all - the author of this "article" should be ashamed to call themselves a blogger when they can't even write basic English grammar. And as was stated earlier - there is no such language as "Brazilian", which sinks their credibility even lower on my scale.
Now - to quote what I have already written on our TelexFREE Team's website -
"As far as the negative info on the company outside of Brazil, we see and read many things on the subject. If you Google the company, you can read them for yourselves. The articles and comments listed on Google searches are from individuals, and none of them are what we would call a recognized "credible" news site.
The articles claiming to know about an investigation on the company are all written from MLM blogs or MLM "insider" websites. These sites are authored by individuals and are therefore only giving you their own personal opinion. It is very important to know that one of those websites is authored by a person who is himself involved in trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission for being involved in a Ponzi Scheme - so because of that - we can not give any credibility to people like this and what their website says.
Official news agencies such as The NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CNN, or TelexFREE's own hometown newspaper, The Boston Globe, has no information written about the company at all - good or bad. It would stand to reason that if there were some official news on the company, that it
