    Happy to see him locked up. I've seen his sites and his WSO's and I suspected he was up to no good. Thanks for posting this!

      This is definitely not good. I hate people like this that prey on people for their hard earned money. 2000 pound for a no value BS membership...he created his own demise.

        Yes,
        a very good example of someone hiding behind rule 1 here.
        Unfortunately he was not the only one.

          yes there are a lot of people online that do this as well and its a shame to see. Because this gives IM and making money online in general a VERY BAD NAME. I don't know how they sleep at night....well in prison he won't sleep well.

    Great news, but do you know what made my day? The guy sent this to his list yesterday.
    I have no idea why he formats his text this way, it's pretty annoying.

    Starman,

    Right now I'm sitting in my new office
    in my new home writing this to you.

    This is the last email you will EVER
    get from me personally.

    No joke. I'm terminating this email
    list after I send you this email.

    So its real. Goodbye :-)

    Before I go I wanted to give you one
    last chance to come and join me
    in
    this new e-commerce business I'm now
    involved in.

    This really will be the last email
    to you about this.

    Why?

    Because I've got my own e-commerce
    business now to run and I don't see
    the need to keep emailing you.

    Selfish? No I don't think so because
    over the last few months I have give
    you the chance to see what I'm now
    doing to make money online and I
    have give you the chance to join my
    Brown Box Banking course that I've
    put together.

    Maybe you did not join and I'm not
    sure why that is but let me tell you
    this...

    E-commerce is the way forward when
    it comes to making money online.

    Its by far the best way to make money
    online and if you don't learn this
    stuff your missing out big time.

    So here you go your very last chance
    to come a work with me personally
    before you NEVER hear from me again.

    Go here and join....

    brownboxbanking.com

    everyone of you on this email list
    who has joined my past online businesses.

    I hope you learnt a lot from all my
    training videos and you got some value.

    I'm sure you did ;-)

    As I've already said if you want to
    work with me you do have BBB you can
    join and you will get access to some
    very cool step by step training
    videos showing you everything you
    need to do to get setup with your new
    e-commerce business.

    Again thank you everyone who joined
    any of my businesses in the past I
    will always be there for you when you
    need me I just won't be sending anymore
    emails out from now on.

    Feel free to add me on Skype: leemckenna2
    to stay in touch if you would like.

    Its been a wild ride and thank you
    fr being apart of it.

    I'm moving on to bigger and better things
    with this new e-commerce business and
    I hope you join me?

    Feel free to reply to this email if you
    want to join.

    Goodbye

    Lee McKenna
    "I'm moving on to bigger and better things..."
    I agree, better for everyone.

    So he's giving the last chance to come and join him in this new venture. (Jail?)
    No thanks!

      Probably because like what seems like 90% of MMO "entrepreneurs" he didn't know anything about how to create a real online business.

      It's classic "fake it until you make it". Of course most -- if not all -- people who employ the "fake it until you make it" strategy never actually "make it" as evidenced from this line from the article:
      Despite him owing thousands, Recorder Dodd could not make an order for compensation for McKenna's victims because he "does not have the finances".

              Jill makes a good point. McKenna is banned now but all the links and ads are still live. Maybe it just takes some time to close them?

              you seemed to be OK with this guy scamming people in the past
              No, I wasn't but good catch on my post. It was responding to someone trying to promote (for free) through someone else's paid thread. It wouldn't be the right thing to do no matter who the seller was. To be fair, no one here knew of this legal stuff at the time, did they?

              McKenna wasn't all that well known here to my knowledge as he only posted in his own "for sale" or "sign up to follow me in an mlm" paid ad threads. I remember googling him once after he claimed he was was earning $30k a month and the stories didn't add up. Every claim of wealth online at that time traced to HIM saying he was rich...not a good sign. That would make me think he was faking - but not that he was defrauding people.

              We've had scammers in the past who took hundreds of dollars from members here before they were outed. When caught usually they totally disappear from the forum and all of their posts/ads/threads are gone, too.

              We had an image of a fancy car posted years ago - with the edge of the car dealership sign showing in the upper corner (oops). We had photos of "my fancy house" - where you could clearly see the closets, cabinets, etc were empty - model home.

              Old timer with a new handle? I like that! Probably so as there are quite a few....including one who doesn't care much for me. Breaks my freakin' heart.

                So fake is OK, unless it's a fraud? Interesting philosophy.

                How hard is it to tell from this ebay offer that the guy is full of shit? Poor guy, he doesn't know Lee has been convicted and is still selling his crap.

                  Good point - and it's not OK but not against the law unless it becomes fraud. We have people who ask how to make money here - and have a "make money in 2 days" link in their signature. Not quite honest but often they don't realize the 'disconnect' and they have no intent to defraud.

                  This isn't the first WF member to run into the legal system and hit a wall - this forum is like a small town with every sort of personality represented. Keeps it interesting!

                    I think the problem is not the evil marketers, but rather, the stupid marketers.
                    The guy had a pretty good plan. He gave away CDs for free to other people to sell on ebay and keep 100% profit. In exchange he got buyers' emails, which he abused with utter bullshit. Perhaps, because that was the best he could do. If you are too dumb, it's unlikely that you can come up with a honest, real business that actually works.

                    However, the plan wouldn't have probably worked if he didn't have this ridiculous sales letter full of bullshit and lies.

          The last email this Mckeena sent is classic. If it really was.

          Those Follow Ups can last for years untouched. He may have made that 5 years ago and kept payment current on his AR service

            I have all his emails from 2011 in a separate email account dedicated for such spam/scam offers. I can provide them to you so you might learn from him and probably be able to do better than calling names and accusing new members of what you seem to have been doing here for the past 7 years yourself. Sig pimping, that is.

            The WF staff were clearly not aware of this so I simply emailed them letting them know.
            We have members here who have been in jail for all kinds of things. People mess up. Life can be messy and tempting.

            Not sure they are allowed internet access when in the clink. If they do, it's all monitored no doubt.

            And to be honest, better not to ban. OP can come back under a new identity. Would rather see him come back as himself so we know who it is.

                I find it rather disturbing that you say "we have members here who have been in jail". That is extremely concerning if you ask me. Who are these members? Why are criminals permitted to register on the forum?
                Holy smokes. Have you never gone outside? Do you have some sort of super power that allows you to detect criminals just by looking at them?

                What do you expect a free, online forum, to do? A complete background check on every person that signs up to certify their criminal history?

                yeppers.

                Hasty actions.

                I would have awaited his big comeback from his all expense paid vacation at Club Fed, gathered the new IP, and give a pop then - unless of course there was no selling going on and the experiences and confessions of what not to do in online marketing were being shared.

    Ok , this is not right. When you start working with pyramids and you expect to make money then it so something wrong with you to begin with. Unless it is stealing from other bank accounts he should not go to jail. I think that if people are naive to trust his system they they deserved what was coming to them. Nobody stole anything from anybody. It was simply a system that crashed. The same way that some of the big companies are working right now.
    Even tho he was a millionaire i guess he was not big enough so he had to go to jail. The big shots do not go to jail. So i guess he wasn't so big after all. But i do admire the effort. ))

    While I 'am way' beyond Mlm's (pun intended) - they are not all illegal or unethical.

    In reality, any franchise works on the same, if not, similiar practice.

    I didn't know this guy, and he's just one of many who scam people online. It's great to hear the dirty when people get busted for scamming people, but usually it does nothing for the people ripped-off...instead, they usually get caught for tax evasion or something other.

    And, I agree if this guy had a huge list and was able to put together the pieces properly to market something, the same energy is used... So, if he's guilty, goes to jail, gets violated in the backside...good!

    RULE #1 = C.Y.A.at least in my book, lol

    So sad! These are the guys that give Internet marketing a bad name. Thanks god they got rid of him. That is why you should always chose an IM Guru with a good reputation, that can easily be done by doing a Google search. You can find out most of what you want to know that way.

    Honestly, good people make mistakes. The difference being crooks know better, weigh the odds, and in many cases know beforehand; the consequences rarely outweigh the risks.

    Personally, I have a conscience that doesn't allow me to take advantage of people.

    I explored what looked like a compelling ad on FB. The woman was using the mother of two, work from home angle... It looked honest!

    After a brief investigation, it concerned people signing up for free offers...and cancelling before the rebill.

    Here in Florida people attend time share real estate webinars to get free tickets to Disney, Universal, or other offers. *Most of them have zero interest in the seminars, they just want the free tickets, and the recruiters get paid to fill rooms, so they'll invite anybody practically!

    It's legal...just unethical in my opinion! Poor management of resources, if nuttin less.

    So, this chick responds on FB after I friended her, sends me a link to this 'opportunity'. Oh, it's free to join, cool right?

    Then, I get on this freebie site, and I'm instructed to start completing offers, credit card info required... Huh, thought she said; free.

    Long story short, I asked her; "Suppose I have no interest in completing offers, can I get paid just to refer people?"

    She responds; "I don't know, you'll have to keep looking!"

    "Ok...so if I exclude /?ref=94176 when I do sign up, you don't get paid for referring me right?"

    I went on that I don't appreciate people who manipulate people to sign up for free, then get them to sign up to 'rebills' with their credit card to earn peanuts for their time!

    In short, this chick was making money off the people that were too stupid to realize she baited them to sign up for multiple rebills, and when they couldnt figure out how to cancel before being billed full price the next month...she was banking!!! They were getting scammed!

    Now, the company has an 'F' rating, and the owner of the platform has already been jailed prior for internet fraud.

    While the site remains up & claims it is 100% legal... It's some 'black hat' bs, and her response was..

    "Well it's real, and my paychecks come from ______ - so, sorry you feel that way!

    Sadly, she prob makes more than most honest marketers online, and there's nothing I could do, aside call her out on her bs!

    People who rip off people online piss me off, cause it makes it 10x harder for honest marketers to gain back trust with those who've been scammed!

    I'll never understand it. Here this guy seemed to have a list and obviously had a grasp on how to build and promote to a list so why couldn't he have just done what 95% of us do and just do it the right way?

    It doesn't even seem like he was a successful scammer because from what I read he had a modest home but not a mansion by any stretch of the imagination.

    I'll bet if he actually took the time to do things right and put his skills to use properly and actually teach people what they were paying him to teach them he would have been 10 times more successful than he was and wouldn't have to worry about going to jail, either.

    I'm trying like heck to understand but I just don't.

    "Fake it till you make it.."

    It WAS all about attitude, not about LYING about what you have or your level of success... if you want to be a millionaire, act like one...Fake it till you make it... the attitude, the way you act...

    One of the first times I heard that statement was at a MLM training done by Bill Gouldd, and it had NOTHING to do with lying about your income or success...

    His company, Equinox International, was interestingly shut down by the FTC for front end loading of products and other tactics... and because a lot of people took what they were told about 'Faking it till you make it' and twisted it... by lying to people about their success in order to get them to join the business with them... many people taking all their savings or credit to purchase 5-10K in products at times.

    Personally, I took my tuition money for college, about $2500 at the time and bought products... not because anyone twisted my arm or anything... simply because I understood the idea of buying low and selling higher... and inventory on hand is easier to sell than a photo in a magazine.

    I faked it till I made it by going out and buying a car I couldn't afford and clothes to look the part... I never told people I made X $$$ or anything else... I just looked the part of a successful business person...

    Then eventually my bank account matched my outward appearance, but not before a lot of hard work and sacrifices along the way... too many people these days just want that quick fix, the million dollar pill...

    Anyway, glad to see another scammer get whats coming... leave more room for honest hard working marketers to benefit financially and more importantly so that beginners or those looking to learn are not taken advantage of by crooks and con men.

    I'm glad his thread was allowed to stay open, never much cared for Rule #1 myself... It's a perfect screen for scammers...
    I HATE with a passion people who do this kind of thing, to me it's the same as armed robbery and should be treated as such...
    I have no problem with people like this being outed as long as there is evidence to back it up, i'm positive that there are many more "Lee's" on this forum...

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

      Because he is a con man. Working to get ahead isn't in his wheelhouse - it's not how he thinks. He wasn't even a good con man or he would have made more money

      What makes people so angry about this story is simple: all of us have fallen for a scammer at one time or another. It ticks us off even if it didn't cost more than $10 - it makes us feel stupid and gullible and we don't like that.

        Yep. I also think when you're someone like this there is absolutely no rehabilitation that will help him. I would say almost for sure. ( OF course there are exceptions)

        Its similar to the Jared Fogler's of the World. This kind of depraved behavior is deeply ingrained in their warped brains. Its not going anywhere regardless of what people try to do to help and understand them

    I remember falling for this "Google" scam, it costed a dollar to join, was a one-time fee, no rebill...

    30 Days later, 3 random charges hit our card, which drained it of a whole $89. They tried to higher intervals first, the fact it was a pre-paid card saved our @$!.

    However, that $90 loss did provide value after the desire to commit hanus acts upon these theives wore off, and it's a lesson everyone should practice online and off;

    Research, and do your due dilligence!

    9 out of 10 times these guys/gals could be 'shut down' sooner if we all gave pause, and truly investigated the opportunities before buyin- into the bs.

    Honestly, I am grateful in a way, that $90 loss was a wake up call for me!

    He was visited at home in December 2013 by investigators, who seized equipment, but he continued trying to scam another woman, even telling her “there was no product” when she asked how his scheme would help her to make money.

    Why this guy is thinking? Good job on nabbing such scammers.

    This does not surprise me. Few brag if they really are a success. However, I am tired of seeing you tube videos of a guy stepping out of a Ferrari sports car. Yeah, it is a cliche and passe. Please do not let this discourage you. After all, you can still sign up for sad sense... an make pennies.
