Whose Fault Is It?

Here’s a visitor comment left by Cali on Amthrax’s site - Comment of the Week Witty describes Ohio Leadership Convention  

I can relate to this only I left not knowing I had actually been duped. I was so naive I really thought it was my fault I didn’t make any money. I am glad I came upon this site. knowing the extent of the truth years ago could have helped me out greatly, although it would have hurt worse because at the time I felt “close” to people. I thought they actually cared. This is the real scam for me. Reading these posts have helped me see how those guilty feelings of not being good enough for the team has carried over into other parts of my life. Guilt about not having the same values or lifestyle dreams for example, or automatically thinking I don’t have what it takes to be a “leader” at any job I have had since. I thought I have moved on but I see not as well as I would have liked to be believe. What a process this has been. Thanks for sharing everyone.

This could have been written by my husband. Maybe it was! No. I think this was written by someone formerly involved in Monavie. Thankfully that’s one MLM scam that Ambot did not get prospected on.

My Ambot was all about pleasing his upline. Why he would put pleasing them over and above pleasing me I’ll never understand. To get my revenge against those upline fuckers I write this blog and curse them out. I mention no names so the reality is I am cursing out all IBO upline out there.

How did Ambot please his upline? Mostly by spending money buying Amway products and investing in the Amway tool scam. The more money he spent the more his upline liked him.

I didn’t spend any money though the upline failed to recognize that the money Ambot spent was really our money. Our upline did not like me because I tried to stop Ambot from buying overpriced substandard Amway products and spending money on functions. So because of any influence I had over our funds and stopping their flow to the upline that is why those fuckers didn’t like me. I can’t tell you how much that breaks my heart! A bunch of phony ass, nasty, greedy IBO bastards don’t like me. Boo hoo!

Ambot thought it was his fault he wasn’t making money in Amway even though he was doing everything his upline told him to. Like we need any further proof that CORE doesn’t work! Well he didn’t do everything upline told him to do. He didn’t leave me no matter how hard his upline bitched at him that I was the reason he wasn’t successful in Amway and he would never make money in Amway because I was a negative unsupportive unchristian dream stealer. Nice label to give someone who is trying to prevent the family from going bankrupt and losing their house because of the Amway scam. Keep the money in our bank account instead of lining the upline’s bank account. And those fucking assholes wonder why I don’t like them because everyone else loves them. Sorry I have no unnatural worship and devotion for any bastards who are dumb enough to be in the Amway cult longer than I have.

It took Ambot awhile to figure out he was being duped. He started asking his upline, namely the sack of shit Platinum, about Amway’s compensation plan. He was brushed off with a curt “Never question upline.” He began having doubts that the Amway business was an honest way to make money. He was also troubled by the upline’s hate on toward me. He stopped going to meetings unless they really bitched at him. He stopped buying hundreds of dollars of Amway products each month. I saw my opportunity. I told him about Merchants of Deception and asked him to read it. He read the book and realized he’d been duped. Eric Scheibeler answered all his questions he had about the compensation that his upline had refused to disclose. I showed him the NBC Dateline expose on Amway that’s available for viewing on Youtube. Ambot was finally seeing the light! Amway = scam.

Ambot knew he’d been duped but he still liked the people in his upline and wanted to stay friends with them. I guess after blabbing to the upline about his dreams and counselling with them so they got to know private information about our lives he felt these people who knew his most secret innermost thoughts were his true best friends. He honestly felt close to them and loved spending time with them. And he thought they cared about him. Boy was he wrong!

I did not have this same sick fascination toward the fucking upline as I’m sure most of my regular readers have long since figured out!

The problem was once Ambot stopped spending money on Amway products and tools and stopped going to meetings the upline he felt close to dropped him like a hot coal. That’s the reality of hanging out with greedy Amway friends. They will be your best friend only when you’re handing over your money. Phony Amway relationships. No matter how much you like them or how close you feel to these fakers they want NOTHING to do with you if you don’t hand over your money to them.

Gee I think I learned from my parents when I was about 5 years old that if friends only like you for your money then they are not real friends at all.

Yup, that age old advice is definitely true when it comes to Amway friends.

There’s more emotional damage. Amway IBO’s are trained to tell everyone not involved in Amway that they are losers. They are trained to tell everyone in their downline if they don’t make money at Amway - the easiest job in the world - that they’re a loser. Ambot genuinely felt like a loser after he left Amway. He was a loser at not making money no matter how hard he tried and the 100 plus hours he invested in Amway each month. Not to mention spending an average of $700/month on the Amway scheme.

Its funny how people look at things. I’m opposite of Ambot. I look at Amway IBO’s as the real losers, not the rest of the population.

I definitely think there was guilt on Ambot’s side after leaving Amway. Guilt at not making his new best friends happy by handing over his money for Amway products and tools. Guilt that he wasn’t good enough to be their friend any more. Sadness that they didn’t care about him anymore.

News flash! They never cared about Ambot. They only cared about getting his money!

The emotional carnage that Amway and their cult leaders leave in their wake is disgusting. I know karma will bite those bastards on the ass one day. Already has in some cases!

So whose fault is it? Those rotten lying upline bastards fucked with the wrong person and became stars of my blog. They’ve got no one to blame but themselves that I’m writing a blog called Married To An Ambot. But they’ll never see nothing as their fault. They are blameless. They are the chosen few who are better than everyone else because of Amway.

Pompous arrogant bastards.


  1. Still working my way through the archives so apologies if I'm asking a question you've already answered. As I was shopping at Target today with the other non-winners who don't want to pay a 500% markup on laundry detergent, I was thinking about how much the prices of consumer goods have gone up in the past few years. We non-winners often track prices so we can stock up during sales, of course. I wonder how Amway mouthpieces are dealing with the reality that folks are even more loath to part with their hard-earned dollars these days.

    Based on your experiences, do you think IBOs are being "given" strategies (through costly tools) for dealing with potential customers' objections as a result of the economy or do you think Amway is just pretending we're not in a recession at all? Easier to believe, I suppose, if you're being schooled not to read the paper or watch TV. Still, I can't help but wonder if they're a) fine-tuning the pitch for the current economic environment or b) just cheerleading even louder since apparently wishing is a key component in wealth acquisition. Something tells me it's B but I'm curious to know what insiders (former ones!) might think. Thanks!


  2. Chelsea - I have over 200 posts. That's some project you're tackling reading them all!

    You're right about noticing prices. Usually women do most of the household shopping and have a good idea what prices at the store are and that is why we object so much when our husbands want to get involved in Amway and spend double or triple or more on generic and substandard Amway products.

    I don't know whether or not Amway and the people operating out of their head office are pretending about a recession. I do know that in our line World Wide Dream Builders that the cult leaders all spoke doom and gloom and recession. These are the most negative people I've met in my life even though they're the ones who go around saying "don't speak negative". The WWDB cult leaders strategy is to promote the Amway business opportunity as recession proof. Our cult leader said even in a recession people still need to eat drink and buy toilet paper so that's the opportunity to sell those Amway products. Yeah look at the price tag, we'll buy it at Costco, Target, Walmart or wherever the best price is. Overcoming the objection is to claim that Amway's high price reflects their high quality.

    Quality is subjective. I have never tried an Amway product that I couldn't find something similar for much lower priced at the store. Even Walmart's Good Value brand is actually pretty decent quality. I used to work for a food wholesaler and the name brand companies also package generic products for the various grocery stores. So someone might pay more for the name brand but the generic is produced by the same company for much lower price.

    IBO's have no strategy for overcoming objections other than telling people that Amway is a recession proof business and that the high prices reflect the high quality. Those cult leaders have been screaming "recession" for years and will likely keep it up for years to come.

  3. Love your blog! The more information we put out there, hopefully the more people we can reach and educate.

    Thanks for your blunt, to the point, humorous, thoughts!!

  4. Thanks One Time Fly! I'm glad you've dropped by and are enjoying my blog!

    Yup we're getting all the information out there that Amway doesn't want known.

  5. I used to wonder why we were commaned to buy only amway products (to show we were not 'commies') no matter the price, but very few drove Hummers.

    Now if Hummers are better quality (and they are) than, say, a Yugo, why don't ALL ambots drive them? Especially if they could get a special price as an IBO?

    I used to sit in those infernal meetings and think of stuff like that all the time. (anything to pass the mind-numbing time)


  6. Buy Amway products to help your upline get rich.

    Buy Amway products to prove to your upline how devoted you are to them and their greedy dreams to snap up material objects.


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
