    Well, according to the article in the Woking News and Mail, the Woking Councillor dealing with this was the "Business Liaison Portfolio Holder", one Cllr Saj Hussain.

    Might be worth dropping him a line and see what he has to say about it?

    Re: Lyoness

    It's taken me many weeks to get to the bottom of the Cashback World Scam, but this is how I think it operates:

    In brief:
    Cashback World are buying Giftcards from National Retailers (in particular Love2Shop) at a discount and then re-selling them back to their members at full price. They give a percentage of that profit back to the members through 'cashback' and keep the rest.
    Then they pretend that major Retailers are their merchants, so they can entice in the Small/Medium sized business owners, who pay them vast sums (up to 1050) to join.

    Re: Lyoness

    Finally! A retailer with some back bone! Well Done Tesco's!
    This is the message they have sent me today:

    'Hi Tara,

    Thank you for taking the time to make us aware of this.

    To call us a merchant of theirs however could be deemed misleading – as we are not a merchant but an issuer of Tesco gift cards in the relationship.

    This will be picked up with them and we'll request that they stop referring to Tesco in that way.

    Thanks
    Cassandra - Customer Care'


    Cashback World are doing this to ALL the National Retailers and it's FRAUD. 100%! Let's hope others follow

    Re: Lyoness

    Cashback World, you can call a turd a turnip.

    Cashback World s Lyoness.JPG

    But what about Walmart?

    It’s true that some major department stores are Lyoness merchants. However, that doesn’t mean they’ll accept the card. In fact, Walmart will not accept your Lyoness card unless you click through the link on Lyoness’ website which is essentially an affiliate link to Walmart.

    So what happens is that you buy something from Walmart through Lyoness and Lyoness earns a commission while rewarding you with a few cents in return. It’s pretty complicated but honestly anyone can become an affiliate for Walmart, so what Lyoness has done with this store chain is not that impressive. https://barenakedscam.com/lyoness

    Re: Lyoness

    Lyoness SME merchants in Australia are being lured in with free membership which doesn't include the cards.
    But then when they join, they have to pay Lyoness $50 a month in fees AND 8% of any sale that is purchased using the card.
    I don't know if this is happening in other countries but the SME's in Australia seem oblivious to this racket.

    Re: Lyoness

    I have two bits of news tonight that I'm hoping are really good:
    Firstly Tesco.
    I've been in regular contact with Tesco's over the summer and have been telling them all about CashBackWorlds 'business practices' and they've been really helpful and very appreciative of the information. So I'm really, really hoping that this news tonight is permanent?

    cbw tesco sold out.JPG

    As you can see, people have been trying to buy Tesco Giftcards though CBW and they have 'sold out'.

    And secondly, and much more hopeful, is some news about Love2shop vouchers.
    People have also been trying to top up there CBW Love2shop cards and have also been unable to do so:

    love2shop cbw fca1.JPG

    But this lady was so cross, she contacted Love2shop customer service dept and was shocked to be told this bit of really good news:
    (that's good for us, not her!)

    How To Get A Refund From Lyoness;

    https://taratalkstoday.blogspot.com/...et-refund.html

    Over 600 people claim to have gotten a refund from Lyoness using this Austrian Lawyer.
    I can only substantiate one of them, but it's still nice to know that action can be taken if you want to.

    Re: Lyoness

    Lyoness is permanently banned in Norway. The Norwegian Gaming Board has rejected Lyoness’ second appeal, resulting in the Ponzi scheme being permanently banned in Norway. The Gaming Board initially banned Lyoness in Norway in January 2018. Lyoness appealed that decision.

    The Gaming Board’s investigation found that the majority of revenue Lyoness generated in Norway was from direct unit investment, as opposed to cashback shopping, as well as commissions and unit returns were also primarily funded by new unit investment. Oz at behindMLM has a story on this development.

    Re: Lyoness

    This is interesting.
    Woolworths in Australia have banned Lyoness from buying their gift vouchers.
    Oh, how I wish, the UK retailers would do the same!

    cbw aus snip.JPG

    Also, we have this:

    'I Called Lyconet Customer Service on Friday (April 25, 2019) And Got The Following Reply:

    Due To Fraud, All New Cashback World Shoppers Using The Cashback App Must Have The Credit Card Option activated by The Gift card Department.

    The Marketer or Sponsor of The New Cashback World Shopper Can e-Mail Cashback World Customer Service The Name And ID Number of The New Cashback World Customer That Need Their Cashback App Credit Card Option Activated. Multiple Requests Can Be Included in One e-mail.

    This Request Can Also Be Called in, But They Prefer e-mail To Keep From Being Bomb With Lots of Phone Calls.

    Plan B:

    You Can Ask Your New Cashback World Customers To e-mail or Call In Their Own Request To Activate The Cashback App Credit Card Option. But, You Might Lose A New Cashback World Customer With This Plan B!

    I Thought This Was A Non-iPhone Issue, But It is Not. It’s A New Cashback World Customer Issue.'

    It's all kicking off down under!
    Jef Rowlinson the Australian MD has been sending emails to his Lyoness members claiming that the numerous refunds currently being given out to disgruntled Lyoness members are LIES, that the German law firm handling the refunds are SCAMMERS and that there are NO legal proceedings anywhere in Europe regarding Lyoness!

    Damning Swiss Court Judgement on the whole rotten Lyoness system:
    …..In summary, the business model of the defendant (Lyoness) is an unfair snowball system, pyramid scheme or Ponzi scheme according to Art. 3 (1) lit. R. UWG…..

    ….. Contracts closed on the basis of an unfair snowball system are ethically unacceptable…..
