    what do u do?

    Okay, so I get this PM the other day. (Anyone else get the same message?)

    The question I was asked by the sender was:

    "hi, so what do u suggest as a solution to stop an upline who steals and re signs your downline within the same company....pls respond...thanks"

    Beats me.

    Good question though.

    Anyone got a suggestion for this individual?

    No it isn't. That is bullshit.

    You're either sarcastic, or lying.

    Go to the company with your complaint. If they do nothing, it's a clear indication that you've chosen a scam.

    Most legitimate companies require an IBO to drop out for a period of time (3-6 mos) before allowing someone to re-join, crossline or upline, or whatever.

    :crazy1:Yeah, stay out of cars and you'll never get in a car accident. Stay out of planes and you'll never die in a plane crash either.

    In fact, stay home and don't go anywhere, cause it's risky, this living stuff is!

    Oh-oh!, many people die at home from weird accidents too!

    Oh well, enjoy your day regardless!

    May as well!

    Just do your homework, don't get shafted.

    Forget MLM.

    You've got a better chance of success investing your money in Vegas.

    Not to be entirely negative, let me provide a list of income opportunities that are likely to be a lot more profitable that MLM. Here are some examples:

    * Sell pencils on a street corner
    * Babysit.
    * Tend or walk the neighbor’s dog
    * Mow lawns
    * Deliver newspapers
    * Use a metal detector to find coins in vacant lots
    * Search garbage for aluminum cans to sell for recycling
    * Sit on the sidewalk and beg.
    * Gamble in Las Vegas – or wage a $20 bet with typical MLM participants that none of their immediate upline showed a profit on their taxes last year from their MLM program. (Your odds of winning are at least 100 to one.)

    Know what I mean, Vern?

    What a silly post. I expected better of you Doc.

    MLM is performance based and entirely dependent on your skills and training.

    Winning or losing in Las Vegas is entirely dependent on chance.

    The following video explains the difference, and at the 8 minute mark explains the difference between performance and chance.

    In that case, there must be an awful lot of poorly trained people and an awful lot of people with few skills in the industry, given the failure rate.

    You might like to read the findings of a recent study that involved 103 million-hands of poker entitled “Statistical Analysis of Texas Hold’em” that concluded poker is a game of skill, not chance.

    Study by Cigital Shows Poker Skills Far Outweigh Chance


    As I said in my previous post, which you found so amusing, your chances of success in Vegas are far greater than that of MLM.

    There is a lot of truth in that statement. Also there are a lot of people with the wrong mindset who shouldnt be in MLM or any other business. Neither of those reasons are the fault of the MLM business model, more the fault of individuals in the business.

    There may well be skill involved in poker, and as a player, I agree there is, but there is still a huge amount of chance involved; your skill and performance can no way influence the way the cards are dealt.
    And apart from poker, most of the other games are purely chance.

    I'm happy to concede that point in the case of poker, so I'll change my statement.

    Winning in Vegas is almost entirely dependent on chance.

    Being successful in MLM is entirely dependent on learning skills and performance.
