    The Greatest Vitamin In The World And MLM Success

    Mo condolences to his family:

    http://www.gossipcop.com/don-lapre-s...m-fraud-trial/



    Don Lapre, the TV pitchman who was charged for selling a phony supplement called “The Greatest Vitamin in the World,” was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Arizona jail cell on Sunday morning.
    The self-proclaimed “King of Infomercials” was set to go on trial this week for allegedly conning at least 220,000 people out of $52 million through the vitamin scam.
    Lapre was indicted in June on 41 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and promotional money laundering.

    What's this got to do with MLM/DS?

    If nothing else, it's a sobering counterbalance to the glossy MLM brochures showing kingpins posing in tuxedos, next to their yachts and sports cars, who allegedly got rich from vitamin scams not that unlike the one described above.

    If it doesn't seem relevant to you, you could simply ignore it. You don't have too look at every post as another opportunity to interject with your worthless $hit stain-seal of disapproval.

    Not to mention how many people claim to have the best, or greatest vitamins in the world.

    Heiney, you and the boys have to stop plugging your snakeoil crap. Some may rightly hate you for what you do, but not enough to see you slit you own throat in jail. Doing it here figuratively every day is bad enough.

    Your families should stage an intervention, assuming they haven't already turned their backs on you, as is often the case in the socially dysfunctional world of MLM.

    Question...does your entire family know about your endless fascination for spraying the world in SHIT, hatred and anger?

    Somehow, I really doubt it...ing1:

    No it doesn't. Nowhere does the article say that it "is not MLM".

    Not sure whether it was or wasn't , but there was a biz opportunity attached. either way, it's still relevant to the discussion of overblown claims about supplements.

    From your link:

    That's right! You can earn money advertising both the vitamins and the opportunity. But this is NOT multi-level marketing. You don't have to pester your family and friends.
    I said their site as in the company site. So this is the overblown claims about supplements and false business opportunities forum? I was under the impression MLMs were the topic and that was just a subset.

    However, if that is fair game, cool. I am planning to start a thread about how the Wikipedia has been abused by an anti-MLM crowd. That seems more than fair now.

    As I recall, the greatest vitamin deal was an MLM structure, but don't recall what type, but it did have a multi-level payout for recruiters.

    Isn't denying being an MLM the hallmark of all MLMs?
