Bogus Amway Sales Jobs

I’ve seen comments from people that they’ve applied for sales jobs listed on places like Craigslist only to find they’ve been sucked into an Amway IBO scammer posting a fake job ad.

On Craigslist their terms of use specifically state that MLM reps can not be posting there but they do anyway and Amway IBO’s are not the only guilty party but they are the majority of the offenders. Usually these ads get flagged off if they blatantly mention the MLM or one of the products which might alert some job seekers who it is.

It must really suck if you’re looking for a legitimate sales job and respond to an ad and get called for an “interview” at a local coffee shop only to be nailed with an Amway board plan presentation.

Finding a job is tough enough without these fucking MLM scammers trying to snipe you into their pyramid scheme.

Ambot and I noticed a sign posted on a telephone pole. I don’t recall the exact working but it said something to the effect of be your own boss and run a health, sports, and beauty business. Even though it was crudely painted it included a toll free number (Communikate?) to give it an air of authenticity. We’re pretty sure it was Scamway.

Likewise people who post resumes on various job sites end up getting trolled by MLM participants who are trying to “grow their business”. In fact you don’t even need a resume up you an just post an ad for something to sell on Craigslist and some demented ambot might phone to pretend they’re interested in buying and then spring an Amway presentation on you.

These ambots have to keep coming up with new ideas on how to trick prospects.

The thing with becoming an Amway Independent Business Owner is its just a fancy term for a commissioned salesperson. Amway is just a sales job no matter how much the upline tries to bullshit you that its not selling. I guess they were kind of right. Its more self consuming Amway products instead of selling them. But to succeed in Amway you do have to be good at sales, either selling the board plan and signing up IBO’s into your downline or selling overpriced substandard products and have the art of selling down to convince buyers this shit is really high quality.

Its like a vicious circle sales job cycle. Amway sells products to gullible salespeople and tells them to recruit other salespeople to sell the Amway products. Once the ambot has exhausted all friends and family and random people in the mall they turn to walking the neighborhood and leaving ads in people mailboxes, posting signs on telephone poles, or posting bogus sales job ads on Craigslist. Once they get a live prospect the Ambot assholes get the recruit in front of their cult leaders to close the sale. That’s because - according to the upline - people on the lower levels of the Amway pyramid are too stupid to close a sale when it comes to bringing in new cult members.

Bogus business. Bogus sales jobs ads. Yup it all seems to go hand in hand with Amway.


  1. Anna - What you describe has been the experience of countless millions of people all over the world who have signed up for 'Amway', and it's many copy-cats, during the previous 50+ years.

    Unfortunately, there is no quantifiable evidence anywhere (in the form of audited accounts) which proves that significant numbers of so-called 'MLM business owners' have ever received overall profits lawfully from regularly retailing 'MLM' wampum directly to the public. Anyone who fell for one of these bogus 'income opportunities', has actually been a de facto slave recruiter. The entire so-called 'MLM direct selling industry' has been a cruel criminal deception of titanic proportions. However, like an urban myth the 'MLM income opportunity' lie has been repeated so often, that it has now taken on a life of its own, whilst the extraordinary truth has become unthinkable to many casual observers. The absurd 'MLM income opportunity' lie has been sustained by a never-ending chain of ill-informed, silent victims who genuinely believed that 'MLM is a lawful and viable income opportunity,' and that their failure to make money must have been entirely their own fault.

    Each time I have laid down the challenge for anyone involved in maintaining the multi-billion 'MLM' lie , to prove my analysis wrong, there has been stoney silence. In reality, these billionaire racketeers are bluffing and, because they are narcissistic cowards, they will do anything to avoid a public confrontation with any free-thinking individual who knows how their blame-the-victim racket functions and who refuses to be intimidated, or bought-off.

    Today, when you join 'Amway' in the USA, you actually become the latest temporary link in a never-ending chain of recruitment and hidden financial failure, which stretches back to 1959 and comprises more than ten millions Americans. It is no wonder, that brainwashed 'Amway' de facto slave recruiters need to hide from the ugly truth that they are doomed to failure.

    When hauled before the courts for running a dissimulated cloed-market pyramid scam with virtually no external retail sales to the public, criminogenic organizations like 'Amway' have hidden behind slick attorneys (who have been paid with piles of stolen money). These shysters have steadfastly pretended that, in their clients' 'MLM schemes', products and services are being sold to consumers' as allowed by legislation which governs 'direct selling'. In reality, 'MLM' bosses have corrupted US legislators in order to introduce their own essentially-meaningless terminology into 'direct selling' legislation. Thus the deliberately-vague term 'consumers' can be interpreted to mean virtually anyone, including the insolvent 'MLM' de facto slave recruiters themselves and their immediate family members.

  2. David - of course the only salesmanship thing that Amway ambots have to be good at is selling hope and dreams! Not so much profit in that unless you're at the top of the pyramid.

    I guess that's what ambots are - temporary links. In a chain that always breaks. Hiding from the ugly truth is the ambot way of saying "don't say negative!"

    Yup according to our upline it was all our own fault that we didn't make money in Amway. Those upline bastards refuse to take any responsibility in their part in spreading the Amway lie and a system designed for failure rather. Can't blame their fool proof system!

  3. I'm surprised that there is not an Occupy Amway movement. The 99% of IBOs that lose money should be protesting against the 1% of the IBOs that make money (from them!)


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.
