I've posted plenty of facts, like your realistic belief of mlm growth being able to saturate the planet in 26 months.

and actual sales figures of retail versus MLM....

you ignore all that stuff and just yell and scream when it's posted.

your meltdown continues.

The list of diamonds means nothing because Amway recognizes a diamond forever, even if they are no longer qualified and receiving bonuses.

I might also add, that Amway wiki is run by a bunch of pro Amway zealots.

Re: The Great Amway Scam Resource Thread

This one's really good...

Amway = Wrong Way

Quote:
Unless you have access to some sort of stealth or cloaking technology (in which case I want blueprints), youíve undoubtedly been accosted by an Amway distributor at some point in your life...

If youíre like most people, you simply shook your head, dismissed it as a scam, and moved on. But a surprisingly large number of people get taken in by it, and the last time someone tried to sell me on the idea, I told him I would take a good look at the business model to see if it made any sense. I did, and it doesnít...
Definitely worth a read.

Here, let me start.

Why IBOs Don't Make Money?


Married to an ambot. So freaking funny and true. The ones I have met acted just like she describes.

Hmmm, lets examine

10.9 Billion in sales

1. 6.54 billion paid out in "bonus" That's a lot of mark up and doesn't count company profit. Hardly a discount way to buy goods. How much does amway make on that?

2. 1 million IBO's and 6.54 billion in bonus. $6,540.00 on average? Hardly a lot of money.

Hmmm All products I buy are cheaper and higher quality

And I make $$ doing it

LOL. You "make money buying products". Say that out loud 10 times.

And nice dodge on the other points. Got math?

That's funny!

Skep just doesn't get it.

Amway sells you a business model in which you can sell your products to yourself and still make money. They assure you that it works because you pocket your own commissions. Millions of people who apparently flunked high school math seem to believe them.

Perhaps the best analogy is a black hole?

You do realise that Skep is talking about making money from his downline don;t you? Please tell me you know the basics of how MLM works?

When Skep says "All products I buy are cheaper and higher quality... And I make $$ doing it", I assume he's talking about making money on his own purchases.

Where exactly are we losing you?

You know what they say about ''assume''

I'm sure he does get a rebate on his own products, if his comp plan works that way....but you ''make money'' from customers and a downline.

From what I've read about Amway, the way it works is you buy over priced products, talk your friends into doing the same

When you have 6000 people all under you doing this you make what.. 150K? Dream on.

Edit. Sorry I forgot to point out that with a 99% failure rate you'd need 600,000 singed up to make the magic Diamond level. Sounds WAY WAY WAY better than a college degree.
