Ariix counterclaim alleges WorldVentures in severe downward spiral
In response to a lawsuit filed against them by WorldVentures, Ariix has come out swinging.
The company has brought to the court’s attention WorldVentures’ pyramid scheme ban in Norway and tax evasion investigations in South Africa, Cyprus, China and Taiwan.
Ariix claims that WorldVentures is currently experiencing a “myriad legal and financial difficulties” and ongoing “serious cash crunch” that has resulted in commissions going unpaid.
All of this has resulted in a “serious business decline” and “global loss of confidence” in the company, which Ariix attributes to WorldVentures’ “own operational failures”.
The WorldVentures Parties’ institutional ineptness has demonstrated the weakness of their owners and management team.
Ultimately, this downward spiral is causing even more WV Representatives and employees to abandon the WorldVentures Parties.
Ariix counterclaim was filed following allegations of unfair competition by WorldVentures.
In a nutshell, WorldVentures alleges MaVie and Ariix benefited from use of their “confidential and proprietary information and trade secrets”.
Ariix points out they
have no contractual relationship with the WorldVentures Parties whatsoever.
They are under no restrictions with respect to recruiting, hiring, or meeting with any of the WorldVentures Parties’ representatives or employees.
The WorldVentures Parties even agree that the ARIIX Parties are free to compete in the travel industry.
As quoted earlier, Ariix feels they’re being inappropriately scapegoated as WorldVentures allegedly implodes.
The WorldVentures Parties have expended hundreds of thousands of dollars to sue the ARIIX Parties and others, claiming that they have tortiously interfered with the WorldVentures Parties’ agreements with the WV Representatives (the “Representative Agreement”).
This, the WorldVentures Parties allege, is because the ARIIX Parties are encouraging WV Representatives to solicit other WV Representatives to leave the WorldVentures Parties and join Defendant Advanced Wellness’s business as representatives.
Notably, the WorldVentures Parties barely mention these Representative Agreements in their Complaint, let alone attach or identify them, or even describe the alleged provisions with which the ARIIX Parties are allegedly interfering.
As part of their lawsuit, WorldVentures had sought an injunction against Ariix.
Based, in part, on WorldVentures having ‘no knowledge or evidence that the ARIIX Parties had actually engaged in any wrongdoing‘, the injunction was denied.
To the meat of their counterclaim, Ariix alleges that WorldVentures’ affiliate policies and procedures (which forms the basis of their lawsuit) is ‘unreasonable, ambiguous, invalid, and unenforceable under’ Texas law.
To that end Ariix are countersuing WorldVentures for violations of Texas Business & Commerce Code.
Ariix have also asked for
- declaratory judgment that, as per Texas law, WorldVentures’ affiliate policies and procedures are unenforceable;
- WorldVentures’ claims against them be dismissed with prejudice; and
- judgment for damages and legal costs.
I hope Oz buries this evil regime. Most of their discount ‘sales’ have been coming through unlicensed markets.
They are creating the illusion of false rank advancement by giving ‘leaders’ the positions of resigned and terminated positions, starting with Johnny Wimbrey and Sashin Govender’s ‘new’ IMD positions that once belonged to Soojay and Cassandra Doovral in South Africa.
Leaders and corporate are talking about ‘record growth’ when the company is counting unfunded ewallet registrations as a ‘sale,’ let alone ALL sales across the world are discounted at $100 instead of ($360-$500), good luck bringing back the original pricing!
They lowered the rank requirements so you can literally have IMDs making a fraction of the money most people would suspect; they still owe lots of reps money from over a year ago, ranging from a few hundred to tens of thousands.
They have spent millions of dollars filing injunctions against former leaders instead of paying reps – most of these injunctions have already been lifted…what a waste!
Now, a lot of the former reps and their attorneys are coming after the company, which will cost them even more. And on and on.
These are all facts, folks, and there is much more! Oz every single comment here is fact and will hold up in the court of law.
This company is insidious and I hope you stay on top of all their antics before even more lives are ruined!!
Over on their Facebook page, there are numerous instances of people struggling to cancel their subscriptions. Worldventures keep taking their money but won’t answer calls or emails.
Looks like they are in need of funds urgently. Else why are they extending lowest of the low pricing of what would cost anyone $600 to join to only taking $99 for the 3rd time?!?!!!
To so many people this is a sign of anyone needing cash to pay off loans and the money owed to vendors and thousands of representatives everywhere!!!!! Sick to the core!
They have companies sued them and counter sued them! Love to hear more insights on these scumbags. More views about them? Glassdoor has more!!!
Looks like only the old timers and inner circles were being promoted!
Hilarious they are running a Welcome Back program…I wonder does the welcome back program come with the 1000’s of dollars in back pay they owe reps?
The government really needs to investigate the group that operates out of Detroit, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee. Alabama.
They have scammed a lot of people telling people it is a membership and when you come to the meeting it turns into a recruitment. They got me in Ohio. They are scum.
