Ming Xu got a few photos with celebrities... So what?

Plenty of WCM folks claim that the photos with some Silicon Valley and other celebrities will somehow "prove" that Ming Xu's not a scammer, as posted on Ming Xu's Twitter account.

First, I ask you, what is the 7th Sin in the 7 Deadly Sins?

The 7th deadly sin is Pride. Showing off oneself.

And these "Ming Xu with celebrity photos" are evidence of pride: appearing next to celebrities to make oneself a faux celebrity.

Real people doing God's work are NOT supposed to show off by posing next to celebrities.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. -- Proverbs 11:2
Yet every photo of WCM777 are of leaders showing off themselves alone, themselves standing next to Ming Xu, Ming Xu himself, Ming Xu standing next to some celebrity... or Someone Ming Xu claims to know standing next to some celebrity (like his friend in Colombia, which he can't spell, shaking hands with the Pope).

They are ALL evidence of pride.

Now you are probably complaining, but those celebrities can't possibly take a photo with a scammer!

You'd be sadly mistaken.

Frankly, if you can afford to buy yourself into that forum (and Ming Xu is a "diamond sponsor", look it up, which means he paid at least $10000) he can pose with anybody he wants, esp. with the abbreviated resume he presented to the forum, not mentioning his various shady activities such as

  • "zero-risk EB-5 residency visa for $530000 USD"  [Proof]
  • "WCM777 ponzi scheme under investigation in Colombia" [Tweet and news]
  • "lying about working with Siemens" [Proof]
  • "confessed to fudging his LinkedIn profile"  [Proof]
  • "confessed involvement in Olympic fundraising scandal" [Case] [confession]
  • "confessed involvement in Vantone stock / pyramid scam in China"  [case] [confession]
  • "continued to use Vantone name, but ONLY IN CHINESE"
  • Created multiple questionable unaccredited schools such as "Harvard Global Institute" [Proof]
  • and so on and so forth 
But if you want a better example... Any one recognize this photo?

Yes, that's President GW Bush on the right. Who's on the left? That guy claims to be "Commander" Bobby Thompson. He can't possibly be a scammer because he shook hands with the president, which means Secret Service must have looked him over, right?

WRONG!  This guy is a con man, who ran a fake foundation called US Navy Veterans Association. He got ton of donations (millions), then tried to stash the money under multiple identities, disappeared with 1 million cash in a suitcase, captured after a manhunt, and claimed IN COURT that the whole thing is a CIA plot.

But wait, there's more examples of conmen posing next to really famous people!

Want a case in Asia? Any one recognize this picture?

Perhaps this one?

Anybody will probably recognize that's Justin Bieber in the blue jacket, and it's the same girl in both pictures. Those that keep up with Asian news may recognize Filipino President Benigno Aquino on the right in the top picture, but who's that pretty girl? That's the Jeannie, daughter of a pork barrel scam queen of Philippines, Janet Lim-Napoles. [Link 1]  This is Janet's official photo:

She got a Wikipedia page all to herself, for basically embezzling government funds to do pork barrel projects that lined her own pockets with help of powerful friends. The outcry was so loud she surrendered to the Filipino president, fearing for her life at hands of a local lynch mob.

If this is too far away, how about a case from South America? Any one recognize this picture?

No? That's office of DMG, or David Murcia Guzman, the most notorious pyramid / Ponzi scheme Colombia had ever known. The girls in red are the DMG employees. But who's that guy? That's Juan Carlos Varela vice president of Panama.  He was running for president in 2008 and he was visiting DMG office in Panama.

David Murcia Guzman was also laundering money for the drug cartels. He was arrested in Panama, sent back to Colombia, who decided to hand him over to the US, spend a few years of jail in the US, before going back to Colombia for even MORE jail time.

Don't you think the DMG people was flashing this photo around, trying to claim they are legal and all that?

I got more cases in China, but I have a feeling you won't feel like reading those, so I'll skip it for now.


I have no doubt that various people will claim that I must be then guilty of 'envy', another sin. Except, what proof do you have that I am envious?

Indeed, what does the Bible say about this?
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. -- Ephesians 5:11
Perhaps I am doing God's work. How do you know I'm not? Your faith? In what exactly?
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. -- 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Have YOU turned away from the truth, and wandered off into myths?
