NEWSFLASH: One of the top Zeek affiliates confessing now on Reddit [UPDATE] Image supplied is a fake

UPDATED: The image supplied was manipulated. Thanks for comments pointing out the various problems. 

As I said, I haven't check. Chances of the main story being true just took a nosedive. 

UPDATED: Full explanation why this is probably a hoax is at my other blog entry.

This is a snapshot of the Reddit Page in question:

I can’t take it anymore, after reading all these comments I don’t care. I know everything that happened, I was greedy and I was selfish and I am exposing everything I know because I am probably the only affiliate high up that will do so:
I was personally introduced by a couple in Hawaii as I was vacationing about ZeekRewards and Zeekler. Daryl Douglas which I have connections with as well communicated on a regular basis. I was told I could join as an affiliate in May of 2011, and I signed on with 10K because I was told what nobody else besides us at the top were, and it was the following:
“ZeekRewards is designed as bid purchases but in reality the cash is from new affiliates, there is a design to slow the growth and plans to keep this running for at least 2 years before it crumbles.” The plans were shown to me clear in writing and I even had access to the actual earnings from the penny auction which was very low.
I knew I would make money, because a few affiliates were “planted” in some of the fastest growing MLM states, Florida, Utah and a couple others. Every who was planted put in 10K or got a loan knowing they would get their return. Not only were we guaranteed are money back from Daryl Douglas and Dawn Wright Olivares, we had direct contact information. I myself spoke to Dawn about twice a week and I allegedly knew that this would fall apart in 2 years or just a bit less.
The month is November 2011: I start recruiting some people, showing them how much I am making. I am dishonest telling them I only started with $500 and where I am at now, which is only about 30,000 points from May. I am making about $500 per day and show a guy who is trying to sale me insurance. He looks at it and of course believes it signing up just a bit later.
I know from speaking to Dawn on a regular basis that we are nothing more then just a recruitment scheme, luring in people one after the next by telling people about the penny auctions and how much they make which in reality it makes up less than 2% of the profit coming in, but they don’t have to know that.
By December I start recruiting more people, but I start using Facebook knowing that I don’t want too many local enemies since I am doing everything out of my small business. I also know that the people in early will get their money back… it’s all timing and a recruiting game now.
I add as many friends as possible on Facebook (5,000) being the limit and build report, anyone who doesnt talk to me I delete and move to the next. I know that the money is there and Zeek continues to grow.
That month I become Senior Executive in ZeekRewards, I have my 6 diamonds and a few gold and silver affiliates. Nobody has put big money in yet other then $500 here and 1,000 there.
I get a call from Daryl Douglas, his account is nearing 400,000 VIP, he tells me how he recruits and his personal success.. I know I need to push the recruiting more.
I start working even harder at Zeek, but by this point and time one of the affiliates I recruited in November of 2011 is a recruiter himself. He pulls in doctors, lawyers and more even unapproved spreadsheets are going around showing what you will make. The business grows, but remember only a few planted affiliates know the true business model, we use our backoffices to lure people in with the large amounts we are making. We know better not to tell anyone else because when it all crashes it will trickle back up to us, we continue presenting the “penny auction” as usual.
By now I almost have 500 people in my Matrix and my account is over 100,000 VIP. I have pulled out just over 10K and show people proof of checks occasionally to lure them in. It works.
I start hosting group meetings out of my business getting the word out, the group grows and grows every week and so does my account, know that the bigger the VIP, the easier to lure people in and the more my cashout option will be.
By this time ZeekRewardsNews which is the official blog and news site ZeekRewards is launched keeps affiliates up to date as well as their Facebook page. The news site is only used to build a trusting relationship with readers, nothing more than just to lure people in.
Updates range from when the site will be down, maintenance, and upcoming details.
May 2012: This marks the date Zeek changes banks, the banks are offshore in South Korea. I have a personal call with Dawn and she tells me how fast the business is growing, gives me a few numbers of what we are making per day, at the time we are over 3 million per day- the actually penny auction site bringing in about 10-15k per day while the other is all affiliate money.
No more paper checks are being sent out by Zeek, simply because of using off-shore bank accounts, Zeek hides the mess by using ewallets NXpay, AlertPay and SolidTrust. Zeek hopes that some people wont know how to take the money from their account leaving more in for us we we cashout.
Zeek happily allowed anyone who requested money to take money out knowing that checks and proof would entice more people to join and put more money in- this worked just as was planned by Dawn, Daryl and Paul.
It’s the end of May 2012, I get an urgent call from Paul surprisingly, he tells me that the payouts and VIP accounts are growing to fast and he doesnt want to scare people away. He manages the Retail Profit Pool and continues to average it at 1.5% so others don’t pull their money out leaving more for all of us.
Paul uses about 1.9 to 2% on Thursdays, 1.4% Fridays and weekends are about 0.8%. I am told by Paul as well as Dawn later in a conference call to draw out money but not all of it.
Dawn: “Don’t draw all of your money out, it will be too suspicious for those who see your account and its under 10,000 VIP or really low” We don’t want people catching on, pull out a decent amount but leave quite a bit in there.
My VIP at the time was over 500,000… I drew out over $35,000 per week in increments. and I knew that all funds that I actually wanted had to be out soon.
It’s now the mid of June, I get call from Dawn telling me that the plugs will be pulled on the company in August and to take out what I need or can. I set my account to 0 taking out $60,000 here, $40,000 there totaling a little over $350,000 in the period of just 2 months.
I’m not allowed to tell anybody on my team, even the guy below me who has 2 accounts for him and his wife that total nearly 500,000 points. I give hints and recommend he takes some money out to take a nice vacation, he does pull out a little over $50,000.
I know that by exposing the scheme it will only be bad for me at this point and time, there is no point. I tell people on the team to 0 out their accounts to move over to Bids That Give (this was a hint) but few listened.
we are now in August, people still ask to see my account, even after pulling out over $350,000 recently my VIP remains at 474,000.
The final meeting I have people want to buy bids, I know I could refuse seeing that we are coming to an end, but that would only cause suspicion if I refused.
It’sTuesday August 14, just a few days before Zeek shuts down its site. I get a final call from Dawn telling me thank you, we are walking a way before we can continue paying out anymore. We talk and I know it’s coming to an end.
Dawn asks me where my VIP on the account is making sure I have a good amount in there to cover the trail, in the even I didn’t they could manually input the numbers for me. I did leave close to 500,000 in my account. In Zeek total since I started I have taken out close to $800,000 being the top guy in my state and knowing how the scheme worked and when it would end.
What I did was dishonest, greedy, hurtful and more. Why am I admitting this? Because I am ashamed, it doesn’t matter anymore. I created many debts as only a few people on my team pulled out what they initially made. It’s too late to come out and knowingly admit my name now…
All the updates on ZeekRewards News about prepaid cards, ZeekBates and other new stuff coming out was just a shame to funnel in more money and keep the money in the affiliates accounts.
I even told people that with the new updates the VIP earnings would double from the revenue, I lied. I did many wrong things,and now I admit them
You see, this was organized and disguised so well, that thousands of people got hurt. Call me an idiot, tell me to burn in hell, but I am the only affiliate in the upline with connections to Dawn, Daryl and Paul who will share my story- my story is the truth and I believe people should know for the sake of their own good.
Zeek was nothing more than a hurtful scheme, buying fake customers and more.
Proof of Backoffice:
This I can publicly display.... This is where my account was before Zeek was shutdown...
Also for those who aren't familiar or up to date with the news an article and videos are found here of basically what happened: 

I have not had a chance to analyze this for accuracy, on how much of this can be guessed and how much can be invented, but this is getting a bit too accurate to be completely fictional.

UPDATE 21-AUG-2012.

Several people pointed out that it can't be a real member's page if there's still bonus points. This prompted me to take a deeper look at the picture and whether it's manipulated. While the picture looks relatively normal, as many pointed out, there's an odd blue rectangle about the VIP Points.

Using Error Level Analysis, I was able to detect a rectangle there that should NOT be. Thus, it is highly likely that the VIP Points section was pasted in. It is even a couple pixels off. Not that I know anything about image forensic analysis.

Jimmy, a fellow critic, did a bit of digging, and found the ORIGINAL picture it was based on:

As I said before, much of this can be guessed and invented. Looks like someone decided to hit a scam while it's down.

  1. 120 bonus points after almost 2 years and 484k points? this is so fake.
    the bonus points are eliminated after 60 days.

  2. Kasey, this is only my personal view but I can categorically say that the Image Screenshot (link towards the bottom of the text) is FAKE! You can see (look carefully) that the numbers in the VIP Balance have been 'added' and do not look like the rest of the numbers in the image! Photoshop special I believe.

    This therefore casts major doubts on the rest of this story. Credit where Credit's due though.. it's quite a convincing story... but the individual is clearly NOT legitimate themselves!

  3. Compelling, but the "Proof" looks like a bad photoshop. You can see the discoloration and the box around the VIP points where it was covered up and written over. You can also tell where the line under Cash Available is off at the same place. There are several white marks in this box above the VIP balance where they failed to cover up completely.

    I'm not 100% sure - but if he had been in since May 2011, his bonus points would have long since rolled over and expired. At 120 this looks to be the account of someone who joined at Silver level and has been in only a couple of weeks. But again - not 100% sure about this.

    If they wanted to prove something they would have included the full view of the transactions showing the withdrawals leading up to it.

    It seems to me this is an attempt at revenge by someone burned early. If my bonus points observation is correct, it helps back that up.

  4. If you joined as an affiliate in May of 2011, how is it your backoffice is showing 120.93 bonus points. Bonus points will not continue after 60 days.
    Why are you doing this?

  5. my bet is this came from someone in "bids that give" so i guess that's a shady deal also

  6. i think you are full of it...

  7. This screen shot is a total fake. 1)As anyone in Zeek Rewards is aware, bonus points were retired after 60 days. If the account had been open for eight or so months, there would be no Bonus Points showing. 2)Even on the computer you can see the insertion lines where these VIP points were pasted in. 3)The fonts for the numbers are off, but the biggest goof is the comma. It is not at all the comma used on actual RPP pages.

  8. While an intriguing story (and I don't have any skin in this game) it's all a big lie. Maybe a true story but not by the person who wrote it... That lie is as big a scam as any. Someone who would do all that knowingly would not have consience or enough soul left to ever write that.

  9. Wow. This reads like a soap opera You could make a movie out of this or write a best seller.

  10. How is it that this jackass has been ther sine 2011 but still has 192 bonus points showing ??? Either that backoffice shot is doctored up (which is what I think) or this guy's account was loaded from the start.

    I for one believe this guy is not real and making up a tale to get more people pissed at zeek.

  11. Hey Gert, the cat is out of the bag!

  12. Kindly change your edited image in order to look like it true, you are claiming to have that huge amount of available balance but you forgot to erase the bonus points. Bonus points will expire in 60 days lol....

  13. WOW!!! confession time not only do u need the forgiveness of a lot of people... I hope u ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and truly ask for his forgiveness, We are all sinners, doesn't matter if we scam,lie,cheat or steal... You need to stay in touch with God and make things right between you and the Lord....rely on him and he will show you the way.I went into this Zeek business Praying for a better way, but I'm not the only one, Everyone that put their savings ,college money,or took loans out now have the burden of paying back, But a lesson well learned.I would like to see everyone read Proverbs 28:1-28 .. There are so many stories in the Bible that relate to today's world ... Thank you Jesus for all that you have done in my life ... GOD BLESS each and everyone....

  14. The blue box under cash available looks photo shopped.

  15. Well F Me this sounds all too familiar i was tol,d only two weeks ago that we had the biggest leg in Zeek, Scary shit yet i truley thought this person was worth thier weight in GOLD. This is way to close to home

  16. we already know who you are.

  17. ngomong opo sampean

  18. This story seems to be total BS since your back office is total BS!!! If you were in as long as you claim then you would have no bonus points as those expire 60 days after you join, and you can never earn bonus points again. Also your cut and paste job was a bit messy. You left behind some white areas above the 3, the last zero, the p on points, and at the end of your cut and pasted box. You can also see the outline of the new box as the colors do not match exact, and you can see the box starting from the : to the end. Not sure why you would do that but it was stupid and so are you. Just sayin...

  19. On whom You working,fuking layer?

  20. well i only lost about $1000 but it was all I had...perhaps you would like to reimburse me from the huge amount of money you made from lying and cheating?

  21. To whoever wrote this article, at least you came clean about it. Unfortunately, a lot of people got hurt by this scheme (myself included), and may or may not get all of their money back. But at the very least, I appreciate your honesty because it takes a lot of courage to admit you were wrong. I only hope that Dawn, Daryl, and Paul come clean soon so we can all have a tiny bit of "peace of mind." It is still just a complete shame about how this company started, continued, and ended.

  22. You are a true Hero and even after all that you have done. I feel that I would vote for you for president. Am I stupid for saying this NO. Because there are some presidents who wouldn't admit to their mistakes. I printed this letter to show my children what the world is like now a days and only hope to GOD, In their years to come, they don't fall into traps like I did. I will pray for you and thanks for sharing your message.

  23. This comment has been removed by the author.

  24. Okay, folks, the picture is manipulated. The question is, what was manipulated?

    The only mod was about the VIP points. Apparently someone took a noob's account and modified the VIP point total.

    Yes, the "support evidence" was retouched.

    While that puts the evidence in doubt, that doesn't completely discount the rest of his story.

  25. In my opinion, I think zeekrewards has done a very great work by helping a huge number of people getting out of the American Modern Slavery. The American System wants to keep the poor poorer and the rich richer. We have seen how perfectly that system works with President Obama's team. In the coming election, all zeekrewards's members will have to involve in order to see what together, we can RECHANGE. Because, we don't see any CHANGE, not even a fake CHANGE ontil date. Oh, NOVEMBER will be very decisive!

    1. How do you "help huge number of people" by taking their money and giving them empty promises?

  26. All of these anonymous posts, but take the picture away that everyone seems to be focused on and it sure sounds familiar..

    1. It sounds familiar, but it can be constructed from publicly available information, and the rest imagined.

      People who write historical novels and movies do much more than this.

      I was suspicious from the beginning. I think at the time I said this has half chance of being true (not on this blog, but on BehindMLM) none of the "clarifications" supplied since have shown any details that are truly significant.

      In other words, you're told a story by people who read your version of the story. Things just fit a little too well.
