    Recent Amway Scam Stories

    http://forums.sherdog.com/threads/ha...amway.2987005/


    So I have a friend of mine from way back, who tells me she is starting a "business." She tells me how she was "recruited" by some people who had to wait awhile to see if she had the "right mind set." I ask her to describe the business, and she tells me how it creates passive income, and how the people who recruited her are "retired at 30" and how she can get out of the rat race...

    Anyhow, she is evasive about what she is actually getting involved in, and tells me she's going to a "leadership conference" in big city x., where she apparently was "surrounded by millionaires."

    At work the next week, I then talk to some guy I know (who is not the brightest) loosely through work, who also happened to be in the same city, same weekend, for what he says is a "leadership conference" for his "business" that he is building. I tell him that I know someone who was supposedly in the same city same days for a leadership conference. His eyes open wide, and he starts asking me we she was, then saying the conference was for "dream builders world wide", and how you move up by levels in the organization, based on recruiting certain numbers of people who are "positive" and want to "own their own business" who then recruit other people, and so forth, and you get a percentage of each person'so sales. Then he says "... Well it's actually run by Amway" ... The infamous multi-level marketing scam/pyramid scheme from the 80's/90's (for those too young to know, google it).

    I think this chick I know is brainwashed by them but at the same time I rarely ever talk to her, so it's not really my problem, just wondering if anyone else here has experience/knowledge of this?

    Well, it kinda is (a cult) when the 'leader' has everyone sit down and says to the room:

    "forget everything you learned in school about business! Forget everything your friends and family told you about business. Don't listen to your friends or family! They are skeptics who just want to hold you back from reaching your potential! They are skeptics now, but once you unlock your potential and start earning very good money, they will be envious! Listen to me, and I'll tell you how the business world really works..."

    except instead of drinking Kool-aid, they drink their crappy energy drinks.

    It's time to revive an old thread, with all the MLM players making promises.
