Global prosperity was an MLM with an
information-based product that educated the poor and middle class on
how to manipulate tax advantages like the rich.
The problem with this type of tax manipulation is
that it is often illegal. You have to actually be rich in order to
do things that are illegal for the poor and middle class. No . . .
but seriously folks! Global Prosperity was providing information
that was at best mediocre in the eyes of a seasoned and
sophisticated investor. The tape set was sold for thousands of
dollars and the seminar was usually held in the Bahamas.
The creator of this program, Keith Anderson, fled the
US authorities to Costa Rica. Keith was offering off-shore
sheltering and alternative trust funds to MLM members and is
considered by the IRS to have racketeered one of the largest
off-shore trust fund scams in history.
My friend Matt Gagnon was
contacted by David Starkey, who actually went to jail by practicing
the methods sold by Global prosperity and the Institute for Global
We have included his letter on this website.
Many MLM’s even put disclaimers at the bottom of
their promotions that say ‘Not Global Prosperity’. That is a very
bad reputation. Below is an expose on abusive trusts and tax scams.
Fraudulent Foreign and Domestic Trusts
Promoters of abusive trusts can lead innocent taxpayers to financial
The bottom line: "Don't Buy In!"
What Is An Abusive Trust?
Establishing a foreign or domestic trust for the purpose of hiding
income and assets from taxation is illegal. Abusive Trust Schemes
typically involve the creation of one or more trusts into which the
taxpayer transfers his or her personal and/or business assets and to
which the taxpayer assigns his or her income. The taxpayer, the
promoter, or someone who will allow the taxpayer in reality to
control the activities of the trust is then assigned as the trustee.
The Facts About Trusts
A trust is a
form of ownership which completely separates responsibility and
control of assets from all the benefits of ownership
used in such matters as estate planning; to facilitate the
genuine charitable transfer of assets; and to hold assets for
minors and those unable to handle their financial affairs
must comply with the tax laws as set forth by the Congress in
the Internal Revenue Code, Sections 641-683
of the Internal Revenue Code may result in civil penalties
and/or criminal prosecution
sanctions can include a fraud penalty up to 75% of the
underpayment of tax attributable to the fraud in addition to
the taxes owed
convictions may result in fines up to $250,000 and/or up to
five years in prison for each offense
are responsible for payment of their taxes as set forth by
Congress regardless of who prepares their return
IRS Issues Warning
Income cannot be shifted to another entity for tax purposes and must
be reported by the individual who earned it. In addition, personal
living expenses which were not deductible prior to the creation of a
trust are not deductible by virtue of assignment of assets and
income to a trust. No matter how carefully the trust documents are
drafted, if the intent of the trust is to avoid taxes, the trust
will be treated as a sham.
April 1997, the Internal Revenue Service issued
Notice 97-24 and Information Release 97-19 warning taxpayers to
avoid abusive trust schemes that promise bogus tax benefits, and to
take steps to correct past participation in such trusts.
