DubLi Facts: The Truth about DubLi
Regarding all the negativity, it’s amazing how people read something online and immediately believe it, and then share it like they’re brilliant. After almost a year since DubLi launched in the United States, rumors are still being spread about how the DubLi Auctions are considered gambling, against the law, and how DubLi is a scam. The fact is, in these threads and blogs, people are discussing their own opinion and do not give real facts to back them up. In fact, 98% of theres claims are inaccurate or just completely false.
Our DubLi Team has done a great deal of research collecting the facts about DubLi because we don’t want you to just listen to us and take our word. We gathered facts from many sources and we hope these DubLi facts will help educate you and help you decide for your self whether DubLi is illegal or a scam. These DubLi Facts are statements, web sites, and official documents and will help put a stop to these rumors flying around the Internet.
Initial Public Offering (IPO) – People claim DubLi is a scam because their not a public company?
There has been lots of talk about how DubLi is a private company, therefore they are a scam. First, many people do not understand
an IPO. An IPO can be a risky investment and this may be one of the biggest decisions for a company. When or if a company decides to go public, there are many advantages and disadvantages that arise. Financial benefit in the form of raising capital or increasing public awareness is a big advantage, while high costs to become public may be a disadvantage. Timing also needs to be taken into consideration.
DubLi has planned to go public ever since they launched in the United States, but they will go public when the timing is right for them. Like I said, becoming an IPO can be risky and DubLi knows and understands this, while people spreading rumors on blogs do not. Well here is the good news because on August 1st, 2009, DubLi and MediaNet Group Technologies have merged together and they will become a public company. See the facts for yourself.
09/25/09 — MediaNet Group Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: MEDG), operates the largest online mall, today announced that it has amended its definitive merger agreement with CG Holdings Limited, a privately-held, European-based holding company for the DubLi companies, a worldwide online trading firm (”DubLi.com”).
Legality of DubLi Online Auctions – Is DubLi an illegal gambling site?
$100 million introducing a business to the USA would have the foresight to pay attorneys to make sure they weren’t’ breaking any laws – which DubLi did, hiring Grimes & Reese (mlm law), a top law firm, which is explained on page 18-19 of the latest DubLi magazine
We are not sure who started this rumor, but whoever started it clearly did not do their research about the company. We have also provided a pdf for you to read that discusses the LEGALITY OF DUBLI ONLINE REVERSE-AUCTIONS UNDER U.S. GAMING LAW. These doccuments also clears up rumors and identifys the truth regarding how DubLi is not breaking any laws.
The Spin Factor – The Web Site that’s full of Junk and False Accusations
“Yes, the negative spinfactor website accuses DubLi of being an illegal pyramid and a lottery.”
“DubLi is a de facto pyramid scheme because . . . 97% of its revenue comes from [the sale of Product Packages].”
“DubLi has made between $8,500 and $12,000 on the 3 games in 1 month . . . How can DubLi sustain itself?”
“DubLi is a pyramid scheme because it sells nothing of value.”
“DubLi’s founder, Mike Hansen, has bankrupted four companies.”
If you want the real facts and truth, please read this DubLi Facts and Truth pdf for the real answers behind DubLi and all of these false claims. You will probably even get a good laugh at some of these bogus claims people have posted.
DubLi Partner Program – DubLi Working with Charities
DubLi also offers a partner program which is great for charities. Check out a few people or companies who have partnered up with DubLi:
If DubLi were a scam, why would Red Cross get involved? Why would Jordin Sparks get involved? They got involved because they say the potential with partnering up with DubLi. They say an opportunity and are capitalizing on it.

Bottom line, DubLi is a complex business that combines a customer-focused shopping portal with a network marketing distribution model. That combination gives Business Associates the rare opportunity to earn an ongoing cut of the revenue stream in an emerging Internet company, a benefit that is normally available only to equity holders and venture investors. Also remember to check out the DubLi Webinar videos to learn more about the company over this past year. Also visit the accomplishments DubLi has had this year alone. I can wait to see what’s ahead for this company.
As for comments posted on the Internet about DubLi, please consider the source (and the source’s underlying motivation) before you attribute any credibility to the comment. Also, if you read something not covered here that appears to raise a red flag, please ask about it . . . you’ll find that, most often, it “just ain’t so.”
We hope this helps give you a better judgment about DubLi and we hope you take this opportunity and learn from it.
Interview with Dean Mannheimer on 8-13-2008
1. Mr. Mannheimer, in the last few years, you’ve been very successfully active for large companies engaged in the areas of fitness and dietary supplements. Now you’ve decided to enter into a partnership with DubLi! What exactly impressed you about the DubLi concept?
What impressed me with Dubli is how they bring value to a family. They are not trying to convince anyone to buy their product because it is strong, better, cheaper or some secret formula. They are saying to a family, do and buy what you normally buy but try buying it through us and see if we bring value to you. See if you get the same great brand products, a better price in a fun and easy way. This is a powerful concept.
2. In the past, you have supported U.S. firms in starting European ventures and have built up a large team here in Europe. At DubLi, will you be working primarily in Europe – what are your plans?
No, I will be helping them open both North America and South America. That is not to say I will not be working with strong leaders from Europe. I have spent many years working in Europe and have developed many friends. Once they understand the correct business model that Dubli offers and what it will mean to the public should they want to participate I will definitely like to partner with them.
3. How does a firm from Germany or Scandinavia start up in the USA? Until now, it was always the other way round. How are U.S. networkers reacting to the launch of DubLi?
It always comes back to who do you know. Network Marketing is about relationships. It is developing a relationship with someone that understands the market you want to go into. This is what Dubli did. They were introduced to me by someone that has known me for a very long period of time and knows my capabilities. When I evaluated the model Dubli has I knew this was a winner so I agreed to help them develop the markets they want to move into. It had been the other way around before because a USA leader had relationships with European Leaders that help move a company in that direction.
The US leaders that are seeing this model are reacting in the most positive way one could ever hope for. Some of the best and strongest leaders see the value in the business model from Dubli, recognize everything is moving to the internet and do no want to be left behind. I believe we will see some of the most remarkable results the industry has ever seen. Time will either prove me right or prove me wrong but I am not worried about that in the least.
4. How well-known is DubLi today in the U.S.A.?
It is brand new. No one has ever heard of them.
5. For you, what is the distinctive difference between DubLi and other multi-level marketing companies?
As I mentioned earlier the main difference is we are not trying to convince someone to buy our product because it is better than someone else’s. We are not adding to a customers buying habit. We are trying to enhance the value their life in what they are already doing. If we can help people buy what they already are buying at a better price in a convenient way and have some fun why wouldn’t they? This is significantly different that other multi-level companies business model.
6. Each big network marketing firm has a ‘focal product’. What are the key products at DubLi and what is your personal strategy to attract customers?
Here are my thoughts on this. First of all we can help people get great brand products, all new, at great prices while having fun in the three auction house Dubli runs. Then we can also help families look for specific products they want and the best price available by using the “competitive Pricing Machine” from Dubli. Additionally Dubli has a partner program that will generate funds for any company or charity to advance their cause of need. Not to be forgotten we also focus on the shop owner helping them increase their sales and profitability. So depending on a Business Associates contacts we will focus in the area where they have their own personal relationships to help them. As far as personal customers, it will mean just letting them know this new business is available. I believe once people realize they can buy what they always have been buying at a better price in a more simple way they will come to us quickly.
7. What can we in German-speaking Europe and world-wide expect from the “Dean Mannheimer” team in the next three years?
We will use all of the new tools that Dubli has developed to support, teach, train, motivate and assist anyone that wants to have a positive change in their and their family’s lives. There are principals and disciplines in this business just as there are in any other business. Unfortunately many times they are not properly taught. We want to be sure everyone has the chance to have what ever they want for their family. We will so everything we can to help them.
8. You’ve now had years of experience in the industry and have set up teams with millions of partners world-wide – do you still recall the beginnings? What did you do then to become so successful?
Yes I remember the beginning like it was yesterday. It is something you never want to forget. When I began to become successful was when I began to be a good student. I realized I had to learn how this business worked. I started listening to different trainers and teachers. I applied what I learned from them. Not everything worked for me. So that which worked I continued to do and discarded that which did not. I learned how to use the knowledge with my personality. We all have different way of talking to people. We have different styles and it is a matter of learning how to use the knowledge in a way people accept it from us without feeling we have changed or become some kind of a salesman. Just keep it simple and honest.
9. You’re something of a pioneer at Dubli, not just in the U.S. Are business dealings made easier or more difficult when you’re the “first”?
That is in the mind. What I mean by that is when you are first thee is no clear path to follow so you have to make the path. If you are not mentally prepared for that it can be difficult. In the beginning you will always face those who will tell you it will not work. They will criticize you or tell you are foolish. But if you are willing to be first, to be the trail blazer you will reap the rewards for your effort.
10. In your opinion, what attributes should you possess to be successful in multi-level marketing?
You should have a strong work ethic, true desire for success and be teachable. Good communication skills are also very important. One should also learn how to employ oneself. That means you know how to work without being told to go to work. People need to know your word is good. You will do what you say you will do.
11. Do you have a “golden rule” to achieve MLM success?
Yes, focus on what others want, help them get it and you will always get what you want.
12. Each company undergoes ups and downs. “Dean Mannheimer” is no exception. What do you consider your greatest career setback and your utmost career highlight?
Probably the greatest set back would have been when a company I had invested many years of work into and I was making very good money went out of business. Emotionally that was difficult. I believe my greatest career highlight is the one I am engage in right now. I truly believe history books will be written about this and I will have been able to experience it.
13. If you could turn back the clock, what would you do differently?
I probable would not do anything different. That does not mean I would have like things to have always gone better. But I believe we could not move forward without having gone through the things we went through. History is our teacher. If you look at the machine that monitors your heart you see the line going up and down. That is like life. If the line on machine is a straight line you are dead. People always want things to be perfect but that is not possible nor should it be.
14. Do you think that network marketing generally benefits from the noticeable structural changes taking place in society?
Yes it does. Today I think you see it reflecting society even more.
15. In closing, do you have a few “words of wisdom” and perhaps some useful tips for our readers?
Just remember in life no one is going to give you anything nor should you want them to. Go out and get what you want for you and your family and do not left anyone or any circumstance prevent you from attaining it. You deserve it. Man kind was made to enjoy life not for it to be a hardship.
