Amway Settles Lawsuit

http://amthrax.wordpress.com/2012/04...on-settlement/

Former Quixtar IBOs have been receiving a notice in the mail regarding the Pokorny v. Quixtar Class Action Settlement. Basically, a bunch of ex-IBO’s (Jeff Pokorny, Larry Blenn and Kenneth Busiere) sued Quixtar and certain BSM companies (i.e. tools companies), arguing that they violated several state and federal laws, including:

Recruiting IBOs in an illegal scheme
Misrepresenting the amounts of profits that IBOs could earn
Persuading IBOs to buy overpriced products and business support materials

The settlement exists to avoid the cost and risk of going to trial. If you were an IBO between January 1, 2003 and February 21, 2012, you have a right to a cash payment or free products. Agreeing to be part of the settlement class means that you cannot sue Quixtar nor tools companies regarding these claims in the future. You can also object to the settlement, but you would still be part of the Class — and as a result, cannot sue in the future.

The final option — the one that keeps retains your ability to sue Quixtar and BSMs in the future — is to exclude yourself from the settlement by writing a letter to:

Quixtar Settlement Exclusions/Objections
PO Box 8035
Faribault, MN 55021-9435

Include your name, address, phone number, and a note saying you want to be excluded from the settlement.

More information about the class action lawsuit can be found here: http://quixtarclass.com

34 million of that will be monetary and 21 million in product.

but for the big losers of that 34 million there is a special pool, if you went bankrupt, or can prove a loss over 10k you can get upto 20% of your loss back, upto 10k only...and that is a specific pool of 5 million dollars for the big losers only. That would be 500 people max to receive the 10k...

Get in line quick or get out of the settlement and sue on your own.

I LOVE it... 2/3 of it is in more World Leading product!!

So these losers whine about Amway and they settle for Amway Product!!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Love it!!

You are happy that your MLM scam admitted to defrauding people and agreed to a settlement?

Evidence that some MLMers were dropped on their head at a young age. Repeatedly.

It seems like Amway is always eager to pony up to settle and the settlement always includes confidentiality.

First of all, Amway had to settle as a result of their wrongdoing. That fact should not be overlooked.

Second, how are Amway's products "world leading?" Need I remind you of our conversation where I compared Amway's products to their competitors, how Amway's market share and real growth were a miniscule fraction of what their competitors are doing, that Amway isn't even on their radar? Amway is junior high school basketball. It's competitors are the NBA. This fact cannot be overlooked.

It's obvious you don't really know how lawsuits work with that idiotic comment.

You don't even know how much concentrated cactus powder is in your own $40 bottle of mystery juice.

When you attempt to comment on things you don't know or have clue, you look like a bigger idiot than you actually are.

Stick to your day scam....MLM.....and Triivita's concentrated cactus powder (Koolaid).

Good point ! Out of curiosity though, can you show where BP are being sued by hundreds of customers who were asked to invest in a BP scheme with promised rewards that didn't materialise. ?

As for Walmart, how many customers are suing as a result of being asked to invest in a Walmart scheme with promised rewards that didn't materialise. ?

Obviously one has to remove litiigation cases based on consumer legislation, eg, faulty goods, goods not delivered, etc. How many cased are left when that exercise is performed ?

Yeah, I thought "lawsuits" was plural, but turns out it means one. I guess English must be different on your planet.

Wal-Mart is a legend in American business, a 39-year-old retail dynamo that trails only ExxonMobil in annual revenue. But in America's courtrooms, Wal-Mart has another distinction: As the company's sales have soared, analysts say, it appears to have become the nation's most popular private-sector target for lawsuits.
By its own count, Wal-Mart was sued 4,851 times last year — or nearly once every two hours, every day of the year. Juries decide a case in which Wal-Mart is a defendant about six times every business day, usually in favor of the Bentonville, Ark., retail giant. Wal-Mart lawyers list about 9,400 open cases.

Dumb Ass Squared

Apology not needed as you are sorry enough

Yeah, people slip on floors and other incidents like that. However, Amway is often though of as a scam, pyramid, ponzi scheme. That's the difference.
