High Profile Failed MLMs

Can anyone help me build a list of high profile failed MLMs?

I can start with this list:

SkyBiz 2000
Excel Telecom
ITV Ventures

...add to this list?

I am preparing some case studies. Thanks!

Re: High Profile Failed MLMs

KN Matol was just bought out, by Univera. They (KM) started with the first real 'juice' supplement 25 years ago. At one time it was Canada's largest privately owned MLM.

Re: High Profile Failed MLMs

Thanks for the input Kerry. Does Matol KM being "bought out" indicate failure or success?

I dunno?! JBH. Sort of a little of both. It was an asset worth selling & buying?

Good question!

Re: High Profile Failed MLMs (Univera)

Looks like Univera is "fizzling":

Quote:
Univera sacked its flagship product, Ageless Xtra, and replaced it with a "fizzy" liquid supplement called Xperia. The new product, quickly developed a reputation for "exploding" in its packaging and arriving in "soaked boxes."
