Faith Sloan poorhouse dichotomy continues…
As part of our continued coverage of the aftermath of the TelexFree Ponzi shutdown, today we again focus in on the claims of defendant Faith Sloan.
Sloan, along with several other top investors is currently being sued by the SEC for her involvement in TelexFree, a billion dollar Ponzi scheme.
In a response to the DOJ’s recent request to stay discovery in the SEC’s civil case, pending completion of the DOJ’s criminal proceedings, Sloan filed an objection requesting
discovery be stayed against her until at least fifteen days after her Motion to Dismiss (ECF #154) shall have been acted upon.
Sloan claims she’s requesting this because she
has found no full-time employment and because her savings as well as the retainer she paid her lawyer have been frozen by order of this Court, she should not be compelled to incur the substantial expense of responding to expansive discovery requests and proceedings pending a ruling on her Motion to Dismiss.
A number of “we knew nothing!” Motion to Dismiss’ have been filed by defendants (Sloan’s was filed in June), with none of them yet having been ruled on.
This latest move bears a striking resemblance to a filing made in the SEC’s Zeek Rewards case only two days prior, where net-winner defendants in that case requested discovery efforts against them also be stayed until their respective Motions to Dismiss were ruled on.
Sloan was also an investor in Zeek Rewards, an $850 million Ponzi scheme shut down in 2012.
In any event, contrast Sloan’s claims above, filed under penalty of perjury, with her latest Facebook posting:
CONGRATULATIONS to Kathleena Slay for personally bringing in 216 BFs on our team in TWO WEEKS!
$15,000 coming to you, girlfriend! Oh before I forget this … ALMOST $10,000 in Fast Start Bonuses and Residuals! DANG!
The opportunity in question is RE247365, which charges affiliates $39.95 a month to participate and pays them for recruiting new affiliates.
Where exactly Slay is placed in Sloan’s downline is unclear, however in addition to direct recruitment commissions (which Slay appears to have earnt), Sloan is likely earning a percentage matching bonus on Slay’s earnings.
This of course is the same Faith Sloan who, under penalty of perjury, claims to be ‘unable to support herself financially‘.
Following the leak of backoffice images, it was earlier revealed that Sloan had made at least $7500 in recruitment commissions prior to the end of September.
Another 216 affiliates in her downline could potentially mean she’s now earned a further $7500. And according to the September data, Sloan is potentially some thirty or so recruits away from earning a $25,000 commission for having 500 affiliates in her downline.
Whether or not Sloan is aware the SEC have access to the internet is unclear. A response from the agency to her latest request has yet to be filed.

I wonder where Sloan is stashing the earnings?
Could this trail lead to money she might already have stashed from her telexfree and other ponzie involvements?
Hey, Oz, glad to see the website is back.
Just wanted to warn you of a typo:
I guess you mean “$1 billion”, right?
Thanks for the pickup. Meant to remove $1 billion altogether from the opening.
Removed “billion” and forgot the “$1” :).
I don’t think Sloan realizes the seriousness of her crime and how this might impact on her future!
My guess is Bitcoin and the usual offshore suspects (Asia has been pretty popular with the Ponzi crowd of late).
Guess we’ll have to see how far the SEC want to pursue this.
My guess is it’s probably stashed under names of her relatives. Possibly under maiden names or pseudonyms.
Could be. She’s got several family member accounts in RE2475365. If they let affiliates do transfers on the backend between eachother that’s one possibility.
I’m kind of half expecting the SEC to subpoena RE2475365 sometime soon. If they’re looking to respond they need to present the particulars of Sloan’s post TelexFree financial activities in court.
Would be interesting to get a glimpse at Sloan’s income tax returns for the past few years to see how much of the income she claims to have earned was reported to the IRS.
well, sloan certainly found money in april 2015 to treat herself to a new luxury sedan:
