Talk:Bell, Kevin & Beth
They Qualified Diamond in 2003 but have not requalified since. Henry and Sue Skaggs was the reason for their growth. When the Bells went Diamond, the Skaggs' were 75% of their organization.
The Skaggs and Linds no longer plug in with their organization. The Skaggs' and Linds are the only Qualified Emeralds in the LOS besides the Non-Qualified Diamonds Bells, which are now Emeralds.
Another group, The Smiths (Platinums) have since left the Bell organization and joined URA with the Skaggs/Linds.
In July, 2007, a lawsuit was filed by Henry and Sue Skaggs naming Bill and Peggy Britt, Miller, Paul & Leslie, Rocky Covington, Kevin and Beth Bell, and Britt World Wide as defendants. The suit alleges that the Skaggs, having developed a software system to allow for direct order fulfillment of tools to their downline, recevied approval from Britt to continue the development of the software program for eventual rollout to all of BWW. During this time, the Skaggs' state that they carried the burden of the development costs. According to the lawsuit, Bill Britt stated in 2005 that the program would not be rolled out across BWW. The Skaggs' then claim they were de-edified by their upline. The suit alleges breach of contract, racketeering, and intentional interference with economic relations.
DOJ will be prosecuting the Britts/Millers/Covington/Bells after the Skaggs civil suit is complete with felony Racketeering charges. The Skaggs' have volunteered ALL evidence in the case. If found guilty of felony charges Quixtar will be petitioned to dismiss all of their business' from Quixtar.
The Britts/Millers/Covington/Bells have defaulted in State Court. Judgement will be made by the Judge of District court, Columbus, GA.
Henry and Sue Skaggs
I have interviewed Henry and Sue Skaggs a couple of weeks ago. They are doing great from what they say. They shared with me the trials and tribulations they have had with their upline. He shared details that he and Sue shared intimate private details to Kevin and Beth Bell in June of 2004, and what insued was hidious in my view. As Henry says, Kevin Bell blackmailed him and Sue into total seclusion. They have taken all of their tool money etc...Henry did share with me that he helped start a new organization called URA. It includes the Crowes/Renfrows/Sestinas/Ridleys and a few other groups. Henry did say that his former company IBS has filed charges against all of his upline and they will be served at the Britt Family Reunion in July in Greensboro. He shared about 2 hours of information/recordings/voice mails. I will tell you that this is not rumors and all that I have wrote is true to the best of my knowledge.
Thank You, a former fired up IBO
UPDATE AS OF 26 SEPT 2008
-IBS (company owned by Henry & Sue Skaggs) ask the Columbus, GA judge to bring the case out of default so the case could be heard with ALL evidence being made public. The Judge the Honorable Maureen Gottfried, accepted the request. The plantiff (IBS) turned over 14 cases of evidence and over 100 hours of recorded phone calls and voice mails to the legal team. The plantiff's also gave over 2000 emails of evidence. Along with this evidence, they turned over a disc with nearly 1 GB of information.
Early in July the defendants offered a settlement in the millions, but the Skaggs' would not give more information. They did share a letter that Bill Blue (Defendants attorney)sent to the attorneys of IBS to ask for a settlement. The Skaggs' have refused ANY settlement of ANY amount. They told us that NO amount will be settled on. The Skaggs' want ALL evidence to be made public.
The Skaggs' also shared an illegal overseas bank account that Bill Britt pays NO taxes on.
The Skaggs' just spent 35 days in the states (they live overseas right now, after death threats from one of the defendants). During that time they have signed agreements in writing with the Department of Justice to cooperate with criminal RICO charges AFTER the Skaggs' are finished with the Civil RICO case.
For any questions, please feel free to ask on this Wiki, or Amway Wiki, or Wikipedia under the discussion tab. I DO NOT make any money in posting this, but am a concerned friend of the Skaggs' and believe in the Quixtar/Amway business.
- Do you have a case number to reference this with? What was illegal about this bank account-- was it found to be illegal, or is it an account used to hold income earned and spent overseas for corporate growth but not brought back to the US, a legal tactic used by US multinational companies of all sizes? I ask because I haven't been able to find any reference to such a case in the court system, and I would like to know just how legit these claims are. I'm a new IBO and I did a lot of research on various claims against Amway but found few that actually had much merit. Greenguy 23:33, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
