Whirled Musings

Across the Universe with Cosmic Connie, aka Connie L. Schmidt...or maybe just through the dung-filled streets and murky swamps of pop culture -- more specifically, the New-Age/New-Wage crowd, pop spirituality & religion, pop psychology, self(ish)-help, business babble, media silliness, & related (or occasionally unrelated) matters of consequence. Hope you're wearing boots. (By the way, the "Cosmic" bit in my moniker is IRONIC.)

GIN is not at all a well scam, so Janine recruits for new scams, while IMBS-ing U hosts Your Magnificent Breakdown

Serial scammer Kevin Trudeau's big scheme GIN, the Global Information Network, may not be dead yet, but to slightly misquote the old Monty Python sketch about burying the cat (you can watch it above), it's not at all a well scam. But no worries. There are plenty of other flopportunities in Scamworld.

For instance, Kevin's loyal longtime friend, business partner,
fellow co-defendant and ex-girlfriend Janine Nubani Contursi is now beating the bushes for more money ops. Janine did all she could to help Kevin, one of her most recent feats being an attempt to funnel loyalists into Kevin's last fundraising party in October, but he still ended up convicted, and in jail for the time being. Janine is now rumored to be involved with writing phony all's-well-with-Kevein-in-the-clink dispatches on Facebook, but she has to look out for herself and her faux-family too. After all, the court-appointed receiver fired her from GIN fairly recently, so what's a girl to do?

Well, if you're Janine, you send out an email like this one, which was blasted out this past Friday to the loyals:

From: Janine Nubani Contursi [email address redacted; I do have some sense of decency ~CC]
Date: Fri, Nov 22, 2013
Subject: Hello!

The reason I am writing you is to first and foremost thank you for the great times we had together in GIN the past few years. Those are times and memories that I will treasure always. I thank you immensely for that.

Since losing my job it has given me much time to reflect on the experience we shared the past few years and I have come to the conclusion that I would very much like it to continue. The experience wasn’t just a job it became a family and I would like to keep the family together. But at the same time I also need to earn an income and with the recent announcement about the affiliate program many others do as well.

These are the questions I have been asking of myself and the people I know. Most of all I would like to have an opportunity that together, we can start at the top, be paid for who we are, who we know, and what we have done in the past. If only that could happen. Well I am fortunate to know someone who has done this before. So I went to Kevin and with his guidance, I have found the answer to these questions and I would like to share it with you. This Saturday (the 23rd) at 7:00 PM Central Standard Time, I will be hosting a conference call to go over what Kevin has strongly suggested that I do to accomplish this. I would like to invite you to be on this call.

Being that this is a personal and private call, please RSVP by email as soon as possible and I will forward you the call details. Please respect the private nature of this call.

Kevin suggested that “to start, I first only share this with the top few people I know”. So this call is not open to the public, it is a private invitation for you to listen to the plan we have to keep our family together.

I appreciate your friendship,

Janine Nubani

P.S. Please email back to RSVP and receive the call in details.

P.S.S Please keep this confidential - Thank you!
November 23 has come and gone so I figure it's okay to break the confidence. Word has it that sweet Janine is into the new-ish MLM scam Venom... I mean VEMMA, and is desperately trying to get a downline. I'm not 100 percent certain that Vemma is her scheme du jour, but it wouldn't surprise me, because Vemma seems to be all the rage these days.

And if she is pushing Vemma, she's certainly not the only one. Other ex-GIN are peddling the Vemma Kool-Aid too -- such as "Water Doctor" and E-Pendant frauduct peddler
Fred Van Liew, whose name is mentioned on this site among others. And Brian Baschnagel, who made more money in GIN commissions than anyone else besides Kevin, Kevin's wife, and Neo-stinker Mark Hamilton, is reportedly on the Vemma bandwagon as well. Gotta do something when the GIN commission checks stop coming in. Gotta milk that fake "family" cash cow for all it's worth. It's the MLM way, after all.

[Addendum, 28 November:] And it seems that Chris McGarahan, the Voldemort lookalike who has been one of the chief perpetrators of Katie's big sick machine, is also in on it. This screen shot is from November 27, 2013:

Chris is an MLM pimp from way back, and he isn't about to let the grass grow under his feet.

You can read all about Vemma on
Salty Droid and Glancingweb. Vemma is gaining some notoriety for targeting younger folks, including the under-aged.

Of course none of this comes as any surprise. Scammers and their enablers just gotta scam and enable, because that is all they know how to do. And they will continue to scam and enable even if GIN goes away totally and Katie stays in the cage till Kingdom Come (though we still don't even know if either of those things will happen).

As for Janine, it sounds credible that she would be talking to Trudeau if she is allowed to have any communication with him whatsoever. And who better to get others firmly on the road to serial scamming than the king of serial scams himself, Kevin Mark Trudeau?

See, that's what I mean by "no neat and tidy endings." You knew I was going to bring that up again, didn't you?

Another Deutschland dispatch from the fake GIN Council

Speaking of scammers and their enablers, Petard Winkwell, aka ex-KT b.f.f. Loony Lenny Coldwell and ex-GIN marketing head Peter Wink, have once again sent an email from a German proxy, pretending to be from the "GIN Council." Once again this is targeted to the remaining GIN members as well as to shell-shocked ex-GIN. It's exploitation at its crassest. I hope that you will pardon me for interjecting a few comments and links.

Subj: Kevin Trudeau in Jail for many years! Gin will be closed starting January 1st 2014! You lost it all but we want to help you: A special invitation for all past and present GIN Members
A special invitation for all past and present GIN Members and Affiliates and other friends...

Dear Past and Present GIN Members/Affiliates and Other Friends,

You are formally invited to take part in a major event featuring Dr. C called...


Learn more at...
[link redacted, but it's on the IMBS-ing U Master Baiter's Society web site ~CC]

Your Magnificent Breakthrough is a unique event as it covers natural health, relationships, self defense, speed reading/comprehension, goal setting, big thinking, and even how to set up multiple streams of income.

For now, we want to share a few highlights about the presenters.

Dr. Leonard Coldwell is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on natural alternatives to drugs and surgery for eradicating any disease and illness --- as well as the bestselling author of The Only Answer to Cancer, The Only Answer to Success, and The Only Answer to Stress, Anxiety and Depression.  He will share little known natural health alternatives to drugs and surgery.  
[Yes, Loony Coldwell is the bastion of credibility, what with his phony credentials, mysterious past in Germany, dodgy business practices, and so forth -- as discussed
here and here and here and here, among other places. ~CC.]

(You may remember that he was the heart and soul of the GIN organization and the standout top attraction at all major GIN  events.)  
[Or so sez Loony himelf.
"Heart" and "soul" are not the first things that come to mind when one thinks of Loony. On the other hand, since GIN was such an obvious scam, being the heart and the soul of such a thing is not exactly something an ethical person would want to put on the ol' resume. ~CC]                

Howard Stephen Berg is a multi-millionaire, celebrity genius.  He’s the Guinness Book of World Records World’s Fastest Reader and a bona fide genius in every aspect of the word.  Howard is also the author of Mega Speed Reading, SuperSonic Writing, SuperSonic Speed Reading, SuperSonic Memory, and SuperSonic Math.  He will be teaching you how to double or triple your reading speed and comprehension.  Bring your teens!
[Teens! Nein, that would be the worst thing you could do. At the very least, if you have an attractive teenage daughter
keep her away from Loony Coldwell. As for Howard Berg... well, his inclusion in the IMBS-ing U curriculum may be another case of "turds of a feather."]      

Peter Wink is the host of the Masters of Action Interview Show and President of WinkPromotions.com, a direct marketing consulting company.  He is also the author of the book and audio programs Negotiate Your Way to Riches and Buying Secrets Retailers Don’t Want You to Know About.  He’s going to teach you all about big thinking and how to translate that into attaining big goals quickly. 
a stunning example of goal achievement himself. ~CC]

Amy Chappell is the COO of Dr. Leonard Coldwell, Int’l and a leading relationship expert. She is going to teach you how to evaluate all the people in your life and how to successfully conduct ongoing personal and business relationships, as well as eradicate destructive relationships.
THIS is your "leading relationship expert" -- a profoundly dysfunctional twentysomething beauty-school grad who ran away from home, hates her parents, and thinks Loony Coldwell hung the moon. Watch that vid, shot at a Loony "Boot Camp" in Charlatan, SC last year, and you will know everything Amy has to say about relationships.~CC]     

Oz Shafer is a former IRS Agent and owns Brain Saver Testing, a private organization conducting brain tests on severely injured patients.  He will teach you all about the IRS and how to get extra tax breaks by owning a business of your own.
[I wonder if he will tell you that
you really don't have to pay Federal income taxes... like Loony has advised. ~CC]

Will Pelton will teach you basic techniques for defending yourself, as well as how to strengthen your self-esteem and self-confidence.  Will is also going to demonstrate special self-defense techniques for women.  You will love him.
[Maybe he will teach women how to defend themselves against Loony. ~CC]   


The event will be taking place on December 6th and 7th at the 5-star---

Wyndham Bay Point Resort
4114 Jan Cooley Drive
Panama City Beach, FL 32408

Friday, December 6th, 2013 (6pm-9pm)

Come back home and re-experience Dr C!

We look forward to seeing you in December!       

Mecca Events

PS:  This is the event of events for networking.  You can interact with me and the guest speakers like never before.  Lives will be changed.  Fears will be conquered.  Baggage will be lost forever.  People will come together.  Relationships will develop.  Huge laughs will be shared.  Fortunes will begin.  Tough questions will be answered.  Breakthroughs will happen.  And much more!  Register right now before it fills up.

So how's that for blatant, disgusting opportunism? (By the way, I doubt that it will even come close to filling up, seeing as how Abe Husein has thrown it open to be a free event (scroll down to, "Still more legal threats from Loony").

Ya know, this email kind of sounds like they'll take any and everybody, doesn't it? Yet in recent Facebook posts Loony C himself has been saying that IBMS Master's Society scam does not want current high-level GIN members or anyone else who is still defending GIN and Katie, because those people are obviously mentally ill or in some other way inferior specimens, and IMBS-ing U only wants those who are worthy of being part of the Master Race. Well, something like that. But we know that is utter crap. You know and I know that Loony and Peter will grab on to anything that is offered to them that even remotely resembles real money.

Whether it's
IMBS-ing U... the Omnia Society... Empower Network and its evil spawn Blog Beast... Vemma... or any number of other "exclusive" clubs or too-good-to-be true ops... the scammers scam on. Kevin Trudeau, you've only been wearing the orange for a couple of weeks now, but your legacy is alive and well. You should be proud, Katie. Mighty proud indeed.

PS ~ Here's Bernie on the feeding frenzy that GIN has become.
