👆#TurnKey,Inc.: #SEC turning the (same)key in the lock

Surprised that commentators think there is anything new in this decision. It is simply a different type of argumentation. It is for the first time a #negative #definition of #ICO #regulation by #securities#laws. Thread👇
👉1. In Munchee Inc., SEC claims (sec.gov/litigation/adm…):
⛔️Munchee has no viable product
⛔️tokens sold are not usable, but will possibly be in the future
⛔️ICO will fund the development of the project
⛔️MUN price will vary AND reasonable expectation of future profits
⛔️#profits (or losses) depend solely on efforts of #Munchee #managers
⛔️#marketing MUN token in the manner to induces the purchasers to believe there is a profit expected solely for buying MUN and reselling it later.
⚠️a positive definition -> this IS a security

BTW... there are a LOT of readers who've commented about being frustrated regarding the #kindleunlimited #scamming issues that have come more into public focus thanks to #CopyPasteCris. It's an ongoing issue...much of my info came from Twitter user Nikki. She has screenshots. Isabella Fawn/Marci Fawn on Dirty Discourse posting about selling her backlist and opening stating it had been previously published.
Many go back for months. #KindleUnlimited #scammers @amazon @AmazonKDP Readers even noticed this problem themselves as far back as 2017, if you look at the #hottakes on my blog. They didn't realize it was a buy/sell thing, maybe, but they saw the copying. shilohwalker.com/website/catego…
Some of the 'defenders' of this shitty practice, like my good friend, Bob, claim this is purely honest and ethical.

FYI, if you haven't Bob...this is Bob.

This comment was at KU. Bob has also defend his crappy crap at La Nora's blog & over @SuzanTisdale's blog. Bob Frost defending crap takes on misleading readers when books are repackaged and resold as new with no disclosure.

I've got another #HotTake on the blog about #KindleUnlimited scammers. I'm posting a short rundown to make a moment, but if you want the full details, visit my blog.

We really do need to 'gate' this. So #ScammerGate.

May I present the newest inductee into the ‘non-author’ Hall of Infamy.

Heather West, & she brought friends, Sophia Gray & Zoey Parker.

#NonAuthorHallOfInfamy See, they don't even get the dubious honor of #authorsbehavingbadly
To be an #authorbehavingbadly, I think we can all agree that you must at least *be* an author.

Buying manuscripts from people & repackaging then as yours, selling as new, all that makes you a book *packager*. Packaging & marketing does not an author make.

It's not complicated.

A heads up to fellow #writers out there, regardless of genre.

You might have heard about #CopyPasteCris. Something that's come to light, or rather been finally spotlighted after some readers & others raised hell that we all need to be aware of AND ACT ON. shilohwalker.com/website/2019/0…
Scammers are buying proliferating on the #KindleUnlimited platform which hurts all authors whether they use @AmazonKDP or not, whether you're traditionally published, with a small press or go the indie route.
These people are literally SELLING & RESELLING manuscripts & copyright only to repackage, recover & release as a brand new book under another author's name (with a shiny, new fake copyright, too). This is deceptive as hell. @AmazonKDP @Amazonhelp has been notified to no avail.

This account was created in March 2018. A date for the military parade was announced on March 9th.

A month ago, Craig was up to 15K followers. That's extremely unusual for a 6 month old account that doesn't belong to a celebrity or public figure. 1/ #scammers #MondayMotivation
Almost immediately, the account started tweeting about the #1millionveteransmarch, using graphics with military imagery, constantly asking people to follow and retweet to get him to 100K followers so he would "qualify for funding". (Note the Buy Me a Coffee link).
A GoFundMe was set up for the march for donations. Craig himself promoted it by tweeting the link on June 15th.

He later said a volunteer set up the GoFundMe in her own name without his knowledge (July 11th), & shared a screenshot of that account showing that she blocked him.
