MB 30 Movement sponsored by Xango is nothing more than a new twist on the same old pyramid get rich quick scheme . Xango's new target are gullible kids who think they can become millionaire's
by the age of 30, by selling energy powder, fruit juice and vitamins.
The meetings are hosted by guys trying too hard to act young and hip, and seem so full of energy by drinking powdered snake oil.
These are predatory sales tactics to try and get kids scammed into signing up for worthless over priced products and paying thousands of dollars in automatic bank drafts to Xango.

Wow, I look at all your comments and have to ask, are you like a Xango stalker or something? Good Lord, it's a billion dollar company, whose never missed a commission payment to their 2 million + distributors spread across 43 countries. Their CEO is splashed across multiple magazine covers raving about his and the companies accomplishments, they are the major sponsor for a professional soccer team (Salt Lake Real) who have the company name plastered on their jersey, they publish the average income of all their distributors (not an industry requirement, but they have an open book/open door practice) and the incomes are good...but yet, you still proclaim they're a scam. In all sincerity, have you got nothing better to do with your time? By looking at your first comment about Xango way back when, it seems as though you have some stepdaddy issues...which I have to say, has nothing to do with the rest of us 2 million + distributors. Not to be offensive in any way, but somebody's got to say it here...perhaps, just perhaps...you need to get some help?

By the way, about this MB30 movement? I am a 3rd year university student working my own way through school. Social work is my passion, but I know my income potential in that field will be limited. I don't care though, it's what I want to do. The majority of my school friends drink energy drinks like they're water. I've got an option for them now with the Limitless product through this MB30 program that's less expensive and better for them. All they're doing is changing where they're spending their money on their energy drinks, their spending less, and up to now 6 of them have signed up to do what I'm doing and are making a commission from spreading the word about it. I ran this by my parents before I got in (my Dad is a CPA and the CFO for a manufacturing company, and my mom is an attorney), and after they researched it, they were totally ok with me doing it. Unlike my job, it takes way less time from m my school work. I make $1 and hour over minimum wage at my job, and my most recent check from Xango was 1/2 of my regular job paycheck...after only 3 months. I'm just going to keep spreading the word and my checks will progressively get bigger. Are you kidding? Why wouldn't I do this? Do you have something against us earning a living, just cuz you've got stepdaddy issues?

Ha ha ha ha, pretty funny Cndr! Have you seen the latest law suit involving your heroes over at Xango? Just google Xango lawsuit .
And while your at it, maybe you can look up Xango and their delinquent property tax bill for around 400, 000.00. Why can't a BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY PAY THEIR PROPERTY TAX?
Get back to me in a few months when you realize that you got suckered into another Amway style Pyramid Scheme and made no money .
And no, I don't have any step father issue's, just mommy issue's. You see
she believed Xango's phony doctors when they said Xango would cure cancer.
Unfortunately, she died a painful agonizing death while drinking Xango and listening to the phony crap that Xango puts out.
I hope you can get out of this cult you are in, and be successful in what you do, but please believe me, I have been there and seen the sad life of MLM and the lies and deception and how people get brainwashed(like you) and you will never be the 1% that make extra money with this junk.
All the best.

I see Harley is still at it. How does this XanGo bashing honor your mothers memory? She was a great lady who deserves better than a shallow bitter son dishonoring her beautiful soul. If XanGo and all the top distributors are the ### of the earth, then that is what you are calling her. At her death her distributorship (the largest) was responsible for $500, 000 of monthly volume, which means she was averaging $85, 000 per month. She loved XanGo and it's products. If you ever loved your mother you would let this go and get on with your life. Find your own purpose.

What's wrong Bill ? Xango sales down? There is no bitterness and anger here.
I'm just trying to educate people on the lies and deception of Xango. Xango is a dangerous cult that misleads it's potential customers by using biased unethical doctors to promote it's product and should be investigated by the FTC. Maybe seeing my mother die in horrible pain of cancer might have something to do with why I have investigated Xango after her death, and I can only report facts. I don't think you were there when she realized that Xango and it's quack Dr Templeman were not all cracked up to what they claimed. Oh yes, my mom used to do the same thing all of you predatory xango peddlers do, She told everyone xango cured cancer, diabetes, HIV, acne on and on. She was just spreading the tall tales of good old Dr T., a family doctor from Camilla GA pop 6200, who just happened to become the world renowned expert on Mangosteen in 2002. Interesting, Xango just happened to be founded in 2002 by Joe Morton, want to guess who Joe Morton's father in law is?? Dr Templeman. Dr T also claims to have a research facility called Phsytoceutical research Llc. it does not exist! Dr T also has a colleage named Dr David Morton. Dr T is also Dr Mortons father in law, and David is brother of Joe Morton. I know it's a bit confusing, but it is a family that acts as if they just happen to be independent consultents to Xango. Who pays Dr T? he lists himself as a Xango executive in a 2008 campaign donation to Mitt Romney. Can you see that there is no independent Dr without family or financial ties to xango that make these incredible phony claims that Mangosteen cures everything? Is this not a little secret that Xango should let people in on when they take a toothpick of science and make you believe it's a log cabin? Dr T also claims to have lectured around the world but I have not found any university or medical convention that he was a guest speaker at. In 2006 xango was warned by the FDA for making false claims about Xango, Xango claimed that they were from a 3rd party, but were in fact from Dr T and Xango. And I still cannot find one medical or scientific journal Dr T has been published in. And there never will be one, Dr T lacks the credentials to be in research. One more thing Bill, to call me shallow after telling me how much money my mother was making is beyond any comprehension, how does making $85, 000.00 a month selling a juice that cures cancer, become of any value when you die of Cancer. Pretty sad bunch you are.

Hey harley da,
It's cnder from back in 2013, remember? Just wanted to say CONGRATS, looks like your stepdad finally got nailed and from all indications, rightfully so. Funny thing is that Xango took his picture off their walls and stripped him of anything to do with the company as soon as everything came out. I was at their corporate office last year for the convention (September 2013) when all this was going down - and Sherman was NO where to be found - no pictures, no nothing. The people at Xango were completely shocked and thoroughly disgusted when they learned about your stepdad's past. I guess it's tough to know everyone and their past when you've got millions of distributors. Sherman's illegal escapades and ensuing jail time were WAY before Xango though (like 30 years ago, and Xango has only been around for 10!), and no one at Xango knew about it. The truth is that when Xango found out, they worked closely with the Maricopa County Attorney's office to help with the investigation, and even ended up donating $200 million to help the victims, to which the Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said, “This agreement recognizes that XANGO was used by the Defendant to hide his assets while also acknowledging that the company’s leadership was not involved in his illicit conduct. We appreciate the cooperation of XANGO’s leadership in our efforts to uncover the Defendant’s elaborate shell game and their support of the victims who suffered enormous losses as a result of his actions.” Here's the link if you want to see it :)
Your stepdad was a liar and a jerk, and he deserved to go to jail. Why he didn't at the very least pay the restitution he owed those people from WAY back in the mid-1980's is beyond me. But I don't understand criminals either, so there's no sense to be made of that. I'm sorry your mom was married to him...seriously.
Here's the thing about Xango though, they're good people, have still never missed a commission payment to their distributors, and have donated close to 6 million meals to starving kids (I'm part of that program). That's in addition to the TONS of other charitable things they do - which they've done since the day they opened their doors.
So now I'm in my 4th year of university and looking forward to completing my degree in Social Services. Funny thing about that though...I won't be needing a career in the Social Services arena, because I'm making enough money with Xango that I could just volunteer helping people for the rest of my life...pretty cool, huh? As far as the product goes, it's awesome, it's patented (yes, they FINALLY won all the patent battles from competitors trying to chime in on their efforts - US patent #8524285, in case you wanted to search for it, here it is -

There are now clinical, double blind, human studies to back up the research on the mangosteen, the xanthones, the juice, etc - and they were done using Xango juice. Now let's be real...Is it going to help everyone? Hell no. Is it some kind of mysterious magical juice, Hell no. But will it change the lives and health of A LOT of other people - HELL YES. No one's making this crap up, there's research behind it, published studies...like TONS of them - just look them up on PUBMED.org. Search garcinia mangostana (the scientific name for mangosteen), and also search mangosteen. The truth is that In this day and age of our broken health-care system, if you aren't practicing self-care on some level, you're just a little more naive than you need to be. Is Xango all I take to better my heath? Not on your life. But it is a BIG part, and it's got years of research to back up the benefits. Want to know the latest?? Check this out from September 2014 - "HSPA5 is an essential host factor for Ebola virus infection" Read the study at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25017472
It says that EGCG (epigallocatechin) inhibits HSPA5, which the Ebola virus needs to survive. And guess what? The mangosteen has DOUBLE the EGCG of the next closest natural source (green tea)...http://www.pubfacts.com/detail/23052712/Fruit-pod-extracts-as-a-source-of-nutraceuticals-and-pharmaceuticals.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, I hope you can find peace in watching your stepdad get his due. And that maybe you'll even stop blaming Xango at some point and move on. Us million other distributors aren't Sherman. As a matter of fact, I know I speak for may when I say that we're disgusted by the guy. But I'm a good person, with good intentions to help others and Xango has shown me their true colors through all this - they are good people too.
Take care!

From Maricopy County Attorney - http://www.maricopacountyattorney.org/newsroom/news-releases/2014/2014-07-24-XANGO-LLC-Reaches-Resolution-with-Maricopa-County-Attorney-in-Civil-Complaint-against-Sherman-E-Unkefer-III.html

"XANGO worked with the County Attorney’s Office during the investigation into Unkefer’s activities and was not involved in his scheme to avoid paying restitution. The company’s stipulated contribution will fully resolve a claim made in a civil complaint that was filed earlier this year against Unkefer and his alleged co-conspirators.
“This agreement recognizes that XANGO was used by the Defendant to hide his assets while also acknowledging that the company’s leadership was not involved in his illicit conduct, ” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “We appreciate the cooperation of XANGO’s leadership in our efforts to uncover the Defendant’s elaborate shell game and their support of the victims who suffered enormous losses as a result of his actions"

Thank you Cinder, for your nicer letter this time, and coming to terms with having a ### like Sherman Unkefer amongst your Xango family. I am sorry Xango got lumped into the collateral damage by being involved with Unkefer, but since he was a huge sales force and representative of Xango, they should have been more aware of Mr Unkefers past and present as a complete con man and liar, and sadly I believe it hurt Xango. As you know I have been exposing Unkefer for more than 4 years when I discovered that he had used my mother on her death bed to set up a fake trust that would benefit himself and his girl friend Laundy(his sons ex wife)and also to hide money from his victims by pretending to be a simple benificiary of the Mango trust. I requested to be removed as a beneficiary of this trust to expose him and the whole scam because I knew he would say I was doing this because of money. Up until May of this year when the RICO complaint was filed by the state of AZ against Unkefer and his co conspirators, my brother and I have been subjected to hundreds of hate mails and accusations that we were just greedy step sons looking for more money.Nothing could be farther from the truth. I have known Unkefer for 25 years while he was married to my mother and he will use character assassination and any trick in the book to go after any of his detractors and will say or do anything to throw people off the trail when they get too close to exposing him. Thank god we were justified when we brought evidence to the prosecutors office from our lawsuit against Unkefer that blew the case against Unkefer wide open and resulted in the seizing of his income and personal property and exposing the Mango trust as a fake to launder money. Yes we did this, and if the truth about Unkefer would have not come out I am sure that he would still be a viable part of Xango and my brother and I would still be labeled as a couple of greedy step sons seeking money from Unkefer. The fact that we helped the investigation into Unkefer will mean that we will never see a dime from the money my mother and Sherman earned from Xango, since it will, and rightfully should be paid back to Unkefers victims. Yes I have read the news release about Xango helping, and was informed by the prosecutor and detective working on the case that Xango was extremely helpful, as was Richard O'brien. and dozens of other witnesses. I would like to thank Xango for their cooperation with the investigation.And good luck Cinder. The latest from the case is, Unkefer has agreed not to fight the Criminal Restitution order we believe due to the overwhelming evidence against him and is now going through te legal motions and still trying to wriggle out of this some way or another. Just like the sneaky little con man he has been all his life. The income generated from my mother and Sherman s Xango business was over $17 million. The image that Sherman portrays of himself is that of humble devoted Christian and servant to god and a man of integrity and character. Nothing could be farther from the truth as he still fights tooth and nail to keep every dime he can from getting to the people he conned out of their life savings. Unkefer will no doubt be popping up somewhere in another MLM with a bag of lies and I plan to be right there making sure people know the truth .

Dear Cinder, On the subject of Sherman Unkefer being involved in another MLM company. I would have Xango's legal team look at a company called VISI. I have heard that Unkefer may be a secret investor in VISI and is laying low because of the non compete agreement he probably had with Xango. Unkefers grand daughter Alexa Raynes is married to Derrick Raynes, and they are both listed as co conspirators in the $54 million dollar RICO complaint against Sherman Unkefer. If you Check Derrick Raynes Facebook page you will see VISI propaganda, and he describes himself as an Arctic star distributor for VISI. Raynes has never sold a bottle of Xango and was only a paid lacky for Unkefer. I seriously doubt that he could become a rising distributor without being placed into the position by Unkefer or someone in VISI that is in cahoots with Unkefer . This has all the sneakiness of the Sherminator all over it.

Hi Harley,
I'm glad everything is finally resolved. I want you to know that I never condoned Sherman's illegal past. My whole point was that you were blaming XanGo for your step dads sins, and by doing so you were putting your mom in a bad light. I used to receive her emails, she was an amazing woman with an amazing outlook on life with a love and loyalty for her family and an amazing personal faith. Good luck to you in your journey to bring Sherman to justice.

Hello Bill, Thank you for your nice words about my mother. I can say that the loss of our mother was hard, but it was even harder seeing Sherman unkefer use her on her death bed, and to also use her while she was dead. It's pretty sick and only an evil person could do this.
Right now as of this writing Sherman Unkefer has agreed not to fight the criminal restitution charge because of the overwhelming evidence against him.
Unkefer now claims that he always wanted to pay the restitution, but the state of AZ never gave him the list of victims. This is such a lie that it is not even worth another sentence.
