Pinnacle Quest International, Inc.

While Keith Anderson awaits trial and his brother Wayne Anderson was just convicted on a variety of offenses, Zoe and Dan are ducking for cover while U.S. law enforcement agents pursue the Institute for Global Prosperity Scam, while Dave Struckman is attempting to move his scheme to Panama (where Marc Harris was able to dodge Los Federales) to launch the next in an increasingly long line of multi-level marketing/criminal tax evasion failures known as Global Prosperity. In May, the following e-mail was spammed out to all IGP members introducing "Pinnacle Quest International, Inc." which is the "latest and greatest" of one of the biggest frauds in history.

Update: June 21, 2002
Even before it gets going, the Pinnacle Quest scheme starts to fall apart.


To my friends and PQI consultants,

What is this nonsense? First we are told on the conference calls before the grandfathering date that we must grandfather over for the $99 and that would keep our qualified status. NOW we must order the course in order to keep it? I think a person should have to order their course before they can make commission off sales of the product, that makes sense, but to change the rules about keeping grandfathering status (and yes I taped those calls so I have it on tape that the $99 kept our status) forget it. With all the new rules and regulations that this new PQI business is making up to "Protect" their consultants that I keep hearing about and seeing makes me feel that I am no longer considered someone who can THINK for herself. This gets more like Hitler all the time, sell this only, do that only, buy this only. Whatever happened to FREE ENTERPRISE? I had truly hoped that PQI would prove out to be every retailers dream, but good Lord, this CONTROL issue is OUT of control. You WANT to be a bunch of SHEEP People? You enjoy treating people and being treated without dignity?

I think for myself and I think PQI has some serious issues already and those will come back and bite them in the rear in the long run. I will not be party to this control nonsense. I care about people, but I don't tell them (adults no less) what they can and can not do. * * * There are retailers calling me that paid for their product that have not yet received their own resource centers. This after sending in money two weeks ago? They lost sales because of the lack of follow through. What a crying shame. I'm done, I'm out of here. Goodbye.

Update: July 2, 2002
LaMantia and Andersen Rag on Struckman

To: Whom it may concern
From: Lorenzo"Zo" LaMantia and Daniel Andersen
Date: 7/2/02

Sometime in mid 2001, Dan and myself met with Dave in Toronto, Canada. At that meeting Dan and I presented Dave with ideas to make some changes in IGP that we believed would enhance IGP, it's growth and future. Dave stated strongly that he did not like our suggestions and would not go along. He left and we went back to the drawing board.

At the GII event in December of 2001 again Dan and myself met with Dave and had another meeting we thought would be a brain storming session. Again Dan and I attempted to present some additional ideas that we have been working on since our last meeting, which included thoughts on: additional products, marketing plan improvements, budget plans, re-alignment of our management philosophies and other creative thoughts. The session ended abruptly with Dave saying, "I don't want to hear it". "There will be no changes in IGP". He then stormed out.

We were shocked! Partners are supposed to plan, brainstorm,discuss and create. Partners must be able to have dialogue, especially when our agreement requires all three partners to agree on major issues. Partners do not turn their backs and walk out.

After the shock and long silence wore off, it was abundantly clear that our partnership had reached a major impasse. We knew that our partnership was in turbulent waters for some time now, with past arguments and differences,but this reaction brought us to the realization that continuing on this course would bring IGP to it's knees. We concluded that we needed to approach this situation differently if we were to ensure IGP's longevity. We recognized that with a dissident partner, any solution would be difficult.

Over the next few weeks, Dan and I spoke several times a day. We soulsearched individually and together. We each reached many conclusions simultaneously and found ourselves in full agreement.

We knew without a doubt that IGP (the founding principals of IGP) must continue and thrive. We knew that we wanted to expand our horizons and realize our dreams within and beyond IGP. We knew that beyond the problems of our partnership; we loved Dave, had a fond history, and we did not want to fight any more. Dave had made it abundantly clear that IGP was his mission and he did not want IGP to change in any way. We arrived at some answers that we thought would solve all of the above and we moved to implement these answers as transparently as possible to avoidany unnecessary "rocking of the boat."

The decision was to turn the leadership of IGP (not the ownership) over to Dave. Thus, giving him full control. He would now be able to run IGP any way he wants without clearing anything with anyone. He would insure that much of the basis of our dream would be secure with his oversight. We still would maintain our ownership and assist when requested (after all, IGP and its members have been our family too). We believed this to be the only real long-term solution.

At this time there has been virtually no communication with Dave, as our calls were not being returned. We communicated this information to Dave about 60-days before the last GII in May. We asked Mike Connaway to act as a conduit in this communication as he has in several occasions in the past. To our relief Mike told us that upon hearing this, Dave was relieved and very happy, and said, "as long as IGP can go on without changes", he was happy. It was also mentioned that a good time to announce this to the RLC would be at the GII event in May 2002. If you wish to confirm these facts with Mike, you are welcome to at

Then, imagine our astonishment,when without any prior notice at the May GII Dave informed us that he was going into PQI? We were in shock! From this point forward it was one surprise after another. He then wanted us to back him as he grandfathered everyone from IGP over to PQI. Our reactions were off base at best, we had previously made a decision to back Dave with IGP but we were blindsided and confused with the PQI decision. After letting this "coup" settle in, and realizing that without any notice or preparation we had no alternative, we decided that in the best interests of the existing marketers we would back Dave.

At the time of the May GII event, EPS had extensive bills including hotel and other penalties exceeding 600K that Dan and I would not walk out on. We had a meeting with the hotel to negotiate payment and Dave did not bother to show up. We had employees at EPS that needed to be paid and needed fair notice as they and their families would be without a job, not to mention a four-year lease we were not sure we could get out of. Only after tremendous encouragement Dave agreed to allow people to buy product at EPS until June to afford some time and resources to tighten loose ends. We promised that we would not interfere in the grandfathering from IGP to PQI, and planned to close EPS (not IGP) some time after June.

Dan and I honored our word, even though in essence our business was stolen from us, and we were essentially out of business. Then more surprises began to surface about a week after returning from GII. There was no offer of assistance to pay EPS's debts or even an inquiry as to if they were handled. We were alarmed and concerned when we heard the PQI "grand fathering of IGP" was costing nearly $100 for each enrollment! Then without notice our access to the IGP/EPS database (under contract with EPS) began to be restricted (fortunately we had a backup). Then, the website disappeared and became "I Get Paid", without any prior notice whatsoever!

So in conclusion, we were left with all the bills, had our database, website and business stolen from us, and even more disturbingly, we are witnessing the IGP membership we had so earnestly worked to protect being leveraged and treated unfairly. This was never OUR intent! At this point, after all the e-mails,complaints, cries for help, and requests for product we felt it necessary to leave EPS open to service the field's requests.

We are writing this letter because of the many e-mails and telephone calls we have received. We are told that lies are being spread about us. We have been silent long enough. You should know the truth about what has occurred. We do not want to get into a spitting match and we will not. We just want you to know that we had no part in the destruction of IGP.

IGP represents our heart and soul and we feel they have been trampled on. We will remain in integrity and we will build our new venture to heights that few ever see or even dreamed about. The original-founding principals of IGP will continue with our new venture.

To continue to receive announcements on what is happening with us, send your e-mail address to If you already responded to any previous memo from EPS there is no need to respond again.
