More Proof that Amway is a Pyramid
I found an article written by a lawyer that asks the question - Is this a pyramid or a legitimate MLM? http://www.mlmlegal.com/pyramid.html
Here’s the checklist:
1. Product and Price
2. No Investment Required
3. Purchase and Inventory Requirements
4. Sales Commissions Sources
5. Buy-Back Policy
6. Retail Sales
7. Active Role for Distributors
8. Earnings Misrepresentations
9. Good Training
The first point about product and price, the first two sentences. Does the company offer a high quality product for which there is a strong demand in the real world marketplace? Is the product fairly priced and priced competitively with similar products?
A brainwashed ambot will chant about how Amway offers high quality products and they’re fairly priced due to their high quality. Fuck I’ve heard that over and over so many times it makes me want to puke! To the first question I say NO. Amway products are not high quality. For the most part they are generic or substandard to similar products easily available in the marketplace. Amway comes with a premium price tag for its low quality products so that answers the second question about whether or not its fairly priced.
Is there any point in picking about the rest of the list? Click on the link and read the descriptions and clearly Amway fails on the other 8 points too. Maybe IBO’s can’t see it when they’re in Amway and brainwashed to believe everything they read on the Internet is a lie but someone looking at this checklist with a clear mind sees Amway getting a failing grade.
On the flip side a brainwashed ambot will look at every single point and also says it applies to Amway. Good prices for good products, good training, earnings are not misrepresented, they’ll brag about a return policy when they’ve probably never tried to return anything themselves and had to deal with Amway's I-don't-give-a-fuck customer service desk.
Those brainwashed ambots will justify every one of those points is further proof that Amway is a legitimate MLM business.
Its a pyramid scheme!!!! The proof is in the pudding. Just don’t eat Amway’s shitty pudding!
