    Sad to say, but there are too many to mention...tbh.

    There's PLENTY of them to choose from on the site behindmlm.com.

    ANY penny auction, or ad sharing MLM...pretty much...start there.

    WMI isn't on of my favs either...ing1:

    PS...I'd like to speak up first for the Anti-MLM bigot brigade here...they'd say..."ANY MLM company...is a big ol friggin SCAM!!"

    ...how'd I do?

    I think there are tiers. The bad MLM companies like Zeek etc just rob people. The truly insidious ones convince people that all you have to do is learn and listen to your up line and you will be successful. So you don't know you've been robbed. Worse are the health scam companies that push ridiculously priced products based on nebulous claims. Way too many to list.

    LOL, and this poster would have us believe that he's NOT an anti-MLM zealot.

    So you are saying there are no such companies? Hmmm, seems you are closed minded. I named no names.

    So how am i a bigot for saying the same thing. You and or Cletus asked me to name good MLMs and I did, of course you both ignored it since it doesn't fit your binary world.

    Well, that'd account for ALL of MLM, wouldn't it?! Are there any that you'd find not a scam? If so, which one(s)?

    Right on time, Cletus the Dufus shows up and makes bogus claims of his own. Learn to read.

    For the educated (not you). If I say "too many to list" I'm a bigot, if he says it, he's what? A saint? A hero?

    I would guess you'ed be too stupid to get it. Plus too stupid to search. In the words of the only person here that doesn't think you're an idiot. "Why should I search for you?"

    If I were asked to provide a LENGTHY list of 100% legitimate MLM's, that I'd be happy to provide, there are MANY of them.

    You can't seem to find one...awwww...texastommy = bigot.

    Believe me pal, if you pointed a finger at an MLM company, claiming it was not a scam, I'm pretty sure I'd remember it!

    Or too smart...if it doesn't exist, why waste time looking for it?!

    So you are too stupid to search. Got it.

    You and doyle both asked me to list the ones I knew about and you of course ignored it.

    Willful ignorance is the state and practice of ignoring any sensory input that appears to contradict one’s inner model of reality. At heart, it is almost certainly driven by confirmation bias.
