Every Guarantee - Every Time

Members of this Group will simply try really hard to contribute to EVERY guarantee posted on the United Prosperity website. Very importantly, the size of each guarantee does not matter - only the "being there" does!See More

"I have gotten all my payments as well. Yes, you have to withdraw it. I have no idea what the status of UP is. A great idea and a valuable and scalable model seems to be languishing because of political issues."

Hello,

Do you know if United Prosperity is still in business?  I have sent several emails and the emails are returned with the note that the mailbox is full. I have not been fully repaid and I'm wondering if other individuals are in the same situation. If you know anything, please contact me at cpracht@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Carl
