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.
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.
