World Ventures “Rat Pack” Investigated And Shut Down By Nebraska Police (New Update)


Misunderstanding or pyramid racket?  From what I understand, World Ventures is a legitimate travel Network Marketing opportunity so either this is a misunderstanding or maybe the “Rat Pack” has some other shenanigans taking place in Nebraska:

CHADRON, Neb. (AP) – Police say a group of scam artists may have been targeting Chadron State College students recently.

Chadron Police Chief Tim Lordino says his department is investigating whether a group that called itself “World Ventures RAT Pack” was running a pyramid scheme. 

I just got an update via World Ventures press release, all appears to be well after World Ventures stepped in:

Today, after a brief investigation by the Chadron, Nebraska Police Department, its concerns regarding WorldVentures and its business model were retracted. This now-resolved incident in Chadron has led to the company reemphasizing the importance of its Independent Representatives abiding by its policies and procedures.
Chadron Police Chief Tim Lordino stated the department has no further interest in pursuing the investigation, as they determined it was an isolated incident by WorldVentures Independent Representatives in Chadron.

The company takes prides in the fact that it complies with all federal, state and local regulations. Independent Representatives are given extensive training and are required to abide by the company’s policies and procedures, including the obligation to act in accordance with all local ordinances.

WorldVentures’ Compliance, led by a Vice President Compliance and Legal Affairs, monitors reports of Representative activity and addresses any complaints allegedly in breach of the policies and procedures. Representatives found to be breaking the policies and procedures may be fined or have their agreement with the company terminated.

  1. It is a little ridiculus that world ventures is online stalking bloggers and demanding they change their blogs. WV is a scam and a pyrimidn scheme, instead of stalking blogs and preying on young people…

  2. Oh Worldventures… Thou doth protest too much. All Mr. Tribble did was state the facts. That’s journalism/ media.

    However, Worldventures since you are talking about doing the right thing maybe you should remove all of your info, that still exists online, that still implies you won an Ernst and Young award. That would be great.
