5 Star Signals – a B classified company by Business For Home – provided Forex Education for newbies and seasoned traders, as well as Passive Forex, managed accounts, with a direct selling compansation plan.
B Classified means “Business For Home concludes that the current information about the company is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits. Information is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits cannot be determined.”
Dean Black was the 5 Star Signals head analyst and Mariska van de Langenberg claims over $180,000 in commissions owed to 5 Star Signals affiliates is lost by Dean Black:
Mariska van de Langenberg:
In the past months over $180k in commissions have been generated and all of it has been used to add to the BlueMoon accounts…nothing is left, it is all gone.
Dean also took commissions generated on the news strategies to fund the BlueMoon Account, resulting in lack of funds to pay our trading partner. These amounts are included in the $180k.
“I feel bad for the people who have trusted me and invested on our accounts that Dean has blown. He may be a brilliant analyst, the trading psychology when trading other people’s money is one he doesn’t seem to master, only in theory.
My supporting him has reached a point where I can no longer continue this support. Blown accounts several times, and even though what he has projected to happen in the markets in the very near future has already started happening, enough people have been damaged by now, this HAS to stop right here and right now.
I have no choice but to stop exposure. Refusal to communicate is definitely a point to draw the line. Ignoring agreements made and not acting like you’ve told members you would, that is unacceptable.
Volume trading in order to build cash for compensation was nice in theory, in reality it has failed. This is that point of no return. Both companies in both Netherlands and Ireland will be dissolved. I wish I could compensate all of you, I truly wish.”
According to the 5 star Signals website:
“Mariska van de Langenberg, with over 25 years in international Corporate management and over 5 years in network marketing, truly believes that people are capable of so much more than they give themselves credit for. She also believes everyone can take control of their circumstances and their financial destiny. With the highest integrity she believed in starting a company that would change lives in a way this world hasn’t seen before.
The main reason for the existence of this company was the best interest of people as so many have been hurt in their attempts to improve their circumstances.”
I have been in the direct selling industry for more than 35 years, and I am seeing how social media is changing our industry rapidly. When I was a young man growing up, we didn’t have the technology that my children and grandchildren are using today.
A big difference in our culture and society has changed in the last 10-15 years due to the rise of social media. And thanks to social media, it is revolutionizing the direct selling industry, which is good news for my Mannatech family.
We already know that the direct sales channel is growing and that technology is quickly replacing jobs. But now we have a tool, social media, on our side.
The Globe at Your Fingertips
According to We Are Social , as of January 2016 the world’s population is at 7.3 billion, and there are 3.4 billion internet users, 2.3 billion active social media users, 3.7 billion unique mobile users and 1.9 billion active mobile social users in the world. That means there are tons of people in the world who have access to the internet, a social media account and a mobile device who enjoy exchanging information with one another.
When someone enters the direct selling space as a distributor, or let’s say as a Mannatech Associate, one of the first steps to business building success has traditionally been to “make a list” of people you know. Let’s stop right there and think about this.
Ask yourself, “If I had to make a list right now of people I know, who could I name? How many people could I list?” In the past, it was hoped that you could list 100 people.
Today, according to Statista , the average Facebook user has 350 friends. Social media has put the world at our fingertips, expanding our once small circle to include “friends” in all countries and continents. And with the help of our smart phones or mobile devices, we can chat, send messages, photos, videos, emails and connect with each other in ways that did not use to exist.
For people like you and me in the direct selling industry, social media puts the entire globe in the palm of our hand.

Why it Matters
Since we already know that jobs are being replaced by technology , we can expect that the future holds a narrow window for success for retail stores. And since we also know that direct selling retail sales are on the rise, it can be concluded that people will quit going to the store to go shopping. Shoppers can shop online from their phones and take recommendations from friends.
In fact, we are right in the middle of what is called the “P2P Economy,” or peer-to-peer economy, where two individuals can interact, buy and sell goods and services directly with each other without intermediation by a third party. According to Nielsen’s 2015 “Global Trust in Advertising ,” 78 percent of people trust and take recommendations from people they know.
Think about that for a minute. Several studies show that we take recommendations from our friends and people we know. We have a huge opportunity to share and make recommendations with our average 350 Facebook friends every day. And they are likely to trust our recommendation.
All the best,
