Interesting tidbit that Ambot met a couple at a mutual friend’s place and the wife’s uncle used to be an Amway Diamond. I think Ambot might have told me about them but I forgot until we ran into the husband recently at the mutual friends. We were just leaving as he arrived but we chatted with him for a few minutes and it was clear this guy knew a thing or two about Amway and nothing good. It was after we were driving home that Ambot told me he’d run into the guy before with his wife and found out the story. Basically they hate Amway and the misery and destruction it brought to her father and their family.
Like most Diamonds, Uncle Asshole didn’t stay too long on his shaky spot on the crumbling Amway pyramid because Uncle Asshole is no longer a Diamond. Its unknown if he’s still in Amway though they believe so but don’t know what level on the pyramid he’s currently sitting at because Uncle Asshole is no longer actively running meetings and destroying other lives.
Uncle Asshole recruited his brother, this fellow’s father-in-law, into Amway. This was obviously a long time ago back in the 90’s because he said his father-in-law managed to reach the level of direct seller (I think it used to be called) known as Platinum today.
Nothing good can ever come off Amway and since those dark days the two families have been estranged. A lot of bad feelings. They are well aware of the tool scam and how slim the possibility is of getting to a level in Amway where you make money. I’m sure Uncle Asshole probably bullied his brother because the son-in-law said Uncle Asshole called his brother a loser and told him he’ll be broke for the rest of his life and blah, blah, blah the usual brainwashing, negative shit we’ve all come to know from our negative associations with Amway scumbags. Uncle Asshole is reponsible for bringing them financial losses, emotional distress, and ripping apart the family.
Son-in-law said the brothers were chasing an impossible dream. Uncle Asshole spent a lot of time chastising his downline and bullying them into not quitting. Probably his father-in-law spent many hours each week convincing the cult followers in his downline not to leave. Usually when one person leaves then others start leaving. Its a crumbling pyramid. People get fed up after awhile of being constantly scolded. After all they are adults. Nowhere else does a real business owner have to report to someone else and be berated.
So there it is. I have now met someone who is distantly related to a former Amway Diamond. And has nothing nice to say about Amway.
Neither do I.
Spending time in Amway is a torture chamber.
Its always nice to know what people think of you when you're an Amway IBO.
