Ann Sieg Under Investigation?

Things have certainly heated up in recent weeks for Ann Sieg (check out her video interview - completely opposite of what she says now) with reports that cease and desist letters have been pouring in from Network Marketing companies legal departments regarding her illegal use of their trademarks and company names.

For over a year Ms. Sieg has had the Network Marketing industry in arms over her false and negative advertising. Specifically her ads allude to companies (use any name you like) not telling you the truth or in some way screwing you over. An ad that seems to work well with those people who somehow share Ann Siegs logic that companies make more money trying to keep people from succeeding than in actually helping them succeed.

Add to this that a former employee or partner (not wishing to be named) has indicated that Ann's success story is exaggerated and that some testimonials are entirely bogus and may have even been compensated and it's no wonder the heat is on. Is the Minnesota Attorney General about ready to file against Ms. Sieg due to all the complaints they have been receiving?

This same person also mentioned that Ann Sieg was ordered by the company she promotes - Send Out Cards (you didn't think her book was all there is did you?) has told her in no uncertain terms that she was not allowed to use their name in ads. Hence - (you can look this up) Ann does not use any special landing page for SOC nor does she come out and say that SOC is lying to you! She does for over 200 other companies though!

Then today I found that Ann's former sponsor blows the whistle on her and Mike Dillard. Turns out they both have something in common - stealing everything they know from someone else. See the whole story here...
