Woodies CCI Club and what am I missing.........just money I guess


For a long time, from summer of 2002 in Orlando, past the Las Vegas conference, the first trade a long, to the second one, on to the third one and so on....alot of people who believed in the slogans would ask.....Where are the donations? This blog has been asking that question since the first day it was published....Where is the beef? Then along came Peregine Charities and PFG and everything was going to be handled by "them'. Two workshops in 2005, one in Denver and one in the Lone Star state brought us these letters that were proudly posted on the WoodiesCCIClub website to show the world that it wasn't someone in the cookie jar.

Wow, it looked great, finally we saw for the first time in over 3 years that..YES, indeed money was going to help the kids as promised. Well, that was 2005 and it's now 2008 and in the last 3 years.....silence......so being the guy who asks questions since the brown shirts in the Woodies CCI Club went out of their way to make my life a living hell, I thought.....maybe I should take a look and see what is out there...in this little cyper world we live in. The first stop was to check out the charity on the letterhead. Peregrine Charities is registered in Illinois so I started there.

Anytime you want to read what is in the pictures, just click them on as you follow along......yes they are good to go......

Well, well you can actually see their filings and also their annual report that is filed with the State of Illinois. For the period starting on 01/01/05 right to the end of the year...12/31/05, so we have the right return anyways....now you can visit the link at the top of each picture if you want to check it out yourself.....

We come to Part XV, the supplementary information and listed are two charities that Peregrine Charities gave money to, Don Duncan Family Foudation in Las Vegas, NV and of course the Make-a-Wish Foundation in Phoenix, AZ. But wait, I thought the letter were from Denver and Irving not the MAW of America. Hummmm, that doesn't add up, I mean why won't it have been entered as giving $11,625.66 to the Denver chapter and
$14,141.45 to the North Texas chapter instead of the main office in Phoenix. Just a question, but I have to think you would be very careful on what you would put on an annual report to the government and sign it....won't you?
So I went one step more and checked out the Don Duncan Family Foundation in Neveda and got this email back after spending an hour and not finding anything about it in Neveda......

YIKES.....no entries.......which means that they "COULD" possibly be in our archival database for "FAILING TO FILE" for more then 10 years....no that doesn't sound good does it? So let's check out the Make-a-Wish database on donors......

Make-a-Wish ends their year on August 31st, so that means that any donation made after August 31, 2005 would be in their 2006 annual report. Both workshop and letters were after that cut off date and according to the annual report filed with the State of Illinois the amount was $35,392.00, but, looking at the 2006 donors list for contributions of over $25,000.00 there is "NO" mention of this donation. Now I know what you might be thinking, yea...I bet they are in the 2005 report and he is just bad mouthing our hero....he wouldn't do this. Well, check it out dude....check it out.

So what do you believe, who is telling the truth, who is using smoke and mirrors to squrriel away cash from the workshops. You can visit the Make-a-Wish annual press releases by typing in "make a wish 2006 annual" or even "make a wish 2005 annual" and it's was the third one down on my google search engine. Why isn't there any mention of either Peregrine Charities, (which up to this point, I thought was beyond reproach(, Ken Woods or the Woodies CCI CLub. And now, everyday the push is on to get everyone to buy the DVD box set so that the money can go to the kids......and I ask WHO'S KIDS????

WAKE UP FOLKS.......if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, most likely it ain't going to lay you a golden egg anytime soon.

I have seen alot of things in my life but this is totally over the top, why would PFG ever be connected with this person is beyond me.

The proof is there that it has been a scam from day one.

You have been right all this time and all I can say is, I'm sorry!

I went to the Orlando TAL in April 2007. The hook was that after expenses the rest would be donated to MAW. It was said in my confirmation that I would be given a recepit to take off my taxes. I have sent 3 emails to Laurie Pietrzk whom is Executive Director of Peregrine Charities and have never gotten a response. Guess you can't give a a tax deduction receipt if you never gave to the charity.

The money involved might be the windfall of a lifetime for Ken Woods, but to PFG this is pennies. I found that THE DON DUNCAN FAMILY FOUNDATION, INC. was registered on 12/30/2003 in the state of Iowa as corporation number 288947. It's status is active. The home office is at 2129 GRAND BOULEVARD, CEDAR FALLS, IA 50613. All the officers are in Iowa. Tax status is that of a charity.

Have you ever had a tax lawyer make a dumb mistake on a form? I have.

Dennis,
I too now realize you have been right all the time. I am sorry I did not listen to you about 10k earlier!

I am so surprised there is no way for us to put him out of business. "They" did it to Steve Matrix and he was a lot littler fish.

If you can think of some way to report this stinker to the authorities, post it in your blog so we can all write in a complaint!

Sport said...

YES, I totally understand that a CPA or H&R Block can make a simple mistake, but having said that, the information given to the CPA or H&R Block comes from the filer...RIGHT? And there were only two donations made the entire year, now you would think you could get at least one of them right if not both.

If you had made say a hundred donations then maybe you might have a couple wrong but 100%, besides in order for it to be a donation you have to receive a donor receipt from the charity.

All the charities I donate to send me a receipt, this receipt states the name of the charity, the address of the charity and the amount given and how much and why it is tax deductable.

That would or should be the form that the CPA and or H&R Block have gotten to finish their return. According to the folks in Neveda, there was never a charity registered there in the first place.

I would love to see any and all letters, emails, flyers from the Woodies CCI Club stating in advance that the proceeds would be given to charity, or a tax receipt would be sent and so on.....then we can get to the bottom of this.

Sport, I have been following your Woodies blog entries for some time now, and I could not wrap my brain around why a successful trader such as yourself would waste his time trying to "expose" Mr Wood. But after the MPlay antics in Vegas I feel compelled to write also! I am a PFG insider, and no I don't work for them just with them. So as we say in the south, "Ya'll set a spell and let me shed some light on this heah ol' boy Woodie" First and foremost PFG charities was an idea that came from Russ Sr and while he was in charge of the day to day operations it really was a charitable entity, however once Sr. was no longer involved with the day to day operations, it is my opinion that things have not gone well for this part of the operation. Also as far as the errors made by PFG in their filings, if you have had any dealings with PFG accounting and back office, other than getting your account balance, you would understand how it is that the charity would make mistakes on their filing.
You must also understand that, in my opinion of course, Mr Woods is in this for profit and there is an incestuous relationship between PFG and Woodies CCi club. Why you may ask? Very simply, PFG pays the Bills. For example, it is rumored that Tony UK owns "talks live" so who pays for the chat rooms, PFG. Also Woodie has been pushing trade navigator to the exclusion of PFGs other platfrom Protrader, it is my opinion that MR Wood is getting residuals from Genesis (navigator) to do this pushing. Also understand that Woodies CCI has and always and will continue to be the marketing arm for PFG, that is the way it was designed. Now here is where you come in my friend. Mr Wood and the Alpha dogs at PFG use people under the guise of traders helping traders, or people giving back, and he will use them and use them until they are all used up and then he will spit them out. Unfortunately this is basically how the whole financial industry works and will continue to work as long as this system is in place. So this is my 2 Spot Pips worth and thanks for the work, hopefully the rookies will avoid becoming coolaide drikers and will be independant thinkers.

Thanks for the great "inside" working of the relationship between the Woodies CCI Club and PFG. I did a piece a while back about TonyUK and Talk Live and belief you are onto something there.

You see where the problem rises is this constant giving money to charity. It all started with Fish or Kill and Susan at the Orlando conference back in 2003 and they had some money left over from the very first public thing that Mr. Woods ever did.

They decided since Fish or Kill granddaughter had had a wish granted by Make-a-Wish to send it to them. This was done really without the blessing of Woodie. The next thing you know it took on a life of it's own and Woodie saw a weak spot in a lot of people and pounded it for every penny he could get.

The money from the second conference in Las Vegas back in December of 2003 never had an accounting of the expenses and of course any donation to Make-a-Wish.

Then came the Trade-a-Long in Chicago in 2004 where only cash was taken at the door and again never any accounting and of course never a word about giving it to Make-a-Wish.

This was why the broker at the that dropped Woodie like a hot potato and I also was having a workshop in Denver, which Woodie was suppose to attend but after Chicago that wasn't going to happen....so he didn't.

This constant pretending that profits go to a charity is what is really at the heart of this. I could and other could get two rats ass if this is to make money being a market guru. We all know it is.

The problem is the way it's being done...the pretending and the out right fraud that is still going on daily in his chat room and using good sincere people like a kotex to reach his financial goals.

Thanks for the update, and just email me if you have inside info you would like to share to stop this kind of BSski.

Anything you email me will not be published in this blog, anything you comment on in the blog will....

Tony does indeed own "Talks Live". There is nothing really wrong with that in itself. fwiw

The big fat lies are what gets me. Why not just tell the truth?

Woodie claims that Make a Wish does not have a national data base so thats why WCCI not showing. I guess Woodie reads this blog all the time because every time something is said here about him he talks about it in the chat room. Someone in the room asked about the dvd's if they could write it off as a donation. Woodie said no write off as a business expense.
