With the recent NSW Office of Fair Trading press release going out yesterday there’s been a bit of an awkward silence over at the Polaris Media Group camp.

You’re trying to sell a scam that’s worked previously but now even random prospects are starting to ask some very uncomfortable questions.

So what do you do, how do you answer these questions and still get the sales?

The following is an actual query that was raised by an associate over at the ‘Polaris Media Group Network’ forum run by Polaris EMC member Tony Rush addressing this very issue.

I guarantee you the answers given will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.

So a prospect has done some research of their own and you need to nip it in the bud immediately. Your advisor is too busy making money to help you out so you turn to your follow associates within Polaris Media Group.

What sayest thou?


New South Wales is a state of Australia… how the government operates doesn’t seem to have any relevance to the link and whilst I’m not a scientist, generally speaking websites that end in .gov.au are real government websites.

…but none of that really matters?

Last I checked the Australian government was running Australia and decided what was and wasn’t a scam in this country.

I don’t know what imaginary land Polaris Media Group distributors  are living in but when your government declares your company to be a scam – that generally matters.

Infact it matters a lot.

The reply continues;

…so if a company has been trading for 9 years and has massive growth, that automatically means there’s no way known it could be a pyramid scheme?

Obviously this associate has graduated from the backyard school of business.

I wonder if that’d hold up in court?

‘We think Liberty League is an illegal pyramid scheme and you’ve been selling it to Australians for the past two years, how do you plead?’

‘Well, Liberty League has been trading for nine years and has wonderful products so it can’t possibly be a pyramid scheme. I plead not guilty.’


‘…let’s just save some time then. So which flavour of anal lube do you prefer, peppermint, strawberry or pillowbiter?’

Uh, I hate to be a stickler but if your prospect has taken it upon themselves to investigate the company themselves and query this government information, isn’t that ‘judging for themselves’?

And yes, you’re reading the rest of that correctly, the Polaris Media Group associate is actually telling a fellow advisor to tell their prospect to disregard the information and advice found on an Australian government website.

Again with the sticklering but isn’t the fact that all the Liberty League top earners exhausted their various markets with Liberty League’s pyramid scheme the reason the company had to rebrand itself as Polaris Media Group?

You know, to move away from this unsustainable pyramid model?

I’m totally with you on the jail part though, can a brother get an AMEN!?

The second reply the associate received was even more alarming:

Um the advisor in question is unavailable. That’s the entire reason the question is being asked publicly.

The advisor is too busy swimming in their pool of money, buying shoes or flying around on their private jet.

Cmon, advisors don’t have time to answer stupid questions like this.

Again, the associate is being advised by their co-workers to disregard the information and advice provided on an Australian government website.

Further to that how do you become more informed about Polaris Media Group?

Oh you meant go watch more Youtube videos and listen to some more conference calls. Well gee I’m sure that’ll make the legal problems go away.

Like this one time, I was being sued because this company because they didn’t like the fact I was outranking them on Google search results.

So I fired up Youtube and just watched videos all day and then all of a sudden-somethingsomething* incomedisclaimer *mumblenothingtoseehere-SIX FIGURE INCOME!

Repeat after me:




Mindframe change complete, you may now resume your day to day activities.

‘Hi I saw this press release on a government website stating your company is a pyramid scheme, is this true?’

‘…hey watch these youtube videos and read these press releases.’

‘Yes but you didn’t answer my que-‘


‘but… how does that answ-‘


With the NSW office of fair trading currently monitoring those involved in promoting Liberty League International in NSW over the last two years and advising other Australian states and territories on the scam, it is quite alarming to see these sorts of answers being given to associates to relay to new prospects.

Alarming but not surprising.

Internally similar deception is being used on prospective associates in order to convince them to join the company.

This recording was edited from a publicly available conference call dated Friday 4th September 2009.

Currently Polaris Media Group is in pre-launch. The company is set to officially open next Wednesday 9th, September 2009.

Despite the company not even being launched yet, somehow associates have been successful with them for 2 years?

Section 52 of the Trade Practices Act states that:

A corporation shall not, in trade or commerce, engage in conduct that is misleading or deceptive or is likely to mislead or deceive.

Does someone want to explain to me how using testimonials from a previous company to market the merit of a new company isn’t misleading or deceptive?

On one hand Polaris Media Group are trying to distance themselves from the Liberty League scam ruling by claiming to be an entirely new company with a new focus.

Yet their marketing calls seem to make no distinction between the two companies and offer seemingly impossible testimonials.

So which one is it guys?
