Amway Salespeople Versus Timeshare Salespeople

Anyone who has spent any time in grocery stores, shopping malls, Barnes & Noble, or coffee shops has seen them crawling out of the wood work. Scum of the earth Amway rats hell bent on scamming people out of their money and destroying lives.

Anyone who has spent time in popular tourist destinations has seen them crawling out of the woodwork, stalking you in hotels, beaches, and sidewalks. Salespeople who are pushing timeshare condos.

Well mabye Amway salespeople too!

Timeshare salespeople must be people persons. It takes a lot of gall to follow and strike up conversations with people who are on their way somewhere who don’t want to be bothered with offers of free or greatly reduced prices on shows, attractions, dinners, etc.

Amway salespeople don’t necessarily have to be good with people because the Amway cult leaders claim you’re not really selling anything. You’re just buying from your own store and teaching others how to do the same thing and everyone will be rich. No one in Amway has anything free to give away or anything with greatly reduced prices that would be a good deal to purchase so the ambots have to figure out another scam to reel in victims.

If you are in a popular tourist destination you do not have to go out looking for a timeshare salesperson. They will find you.

No matter where you are in the world and even though you’re not looking for an Amway salesperson, they’ll crawl out of the sewer and find you anyway.

Timeshare salespeople have an angle to trick potential buyers into attending a sales pitch meeting. Usually it involves giving something away for free or at least the illusion of doing so.

Amway salespeople trick unsuspecting prospects into attending Amway meetings through a number of lies. Usually has something to do with e-commerce, learning how to start up your own business, tea party, beer bust, movie and popcorn night, make up party. There are endless pitches. All lies.

Time sharesalespeople are hustlers.

Amway salespeople are hustlers and scammers.

Timeshare salespeople usually have condo/hotel rentals available at overinflated prices and one usually has to pay some kind of membership fee to join.

Amway salespeople have overpriced shitty products for sale and if one wants to become an IBO they pay a membership fee.

Timeshare salespeople generally earn a salary and a commission.

Amway salespeople do not earn a salary and rarely make much commission. Amway’s own literature says the average IBO earns $115/month gross. They fail to disclose how much money an IBO has to shell out each month just to earn that $115 and the reality is the net loss is usually hundreds of dollars in the hole each month.

Timeshare salespeople want to get the prospect in front of the head honcho salesperson who is probably one of the best closers on the planet.

Amway salespeople want to get their prospect in front of their Platinum because they have more experience at reeling a gullible person into the scam.

Timeshare salespeople are annoying as hell.

Amway salespeople are worse than annoying as hell.

Timeshare salespeople have a little territory that they stick close to like a desk, shop front, or piece of sidewalk. Disinterested people can keep walking and its unlikely they’ll be pursued by the time share salesperson.

Amway salespeople know no boundaries. They’ll chase you all over town hounding you to attend an Amway meeting or buy shitty Amway products.

Timeshare salespeople usually only spend seconds maybe minutes on a prospect before the prospect gets away or they spot another likely prospect and dump the first one.

Amway salespeople will spend hours begging and pleading a prospect to attend an Amway meeting.

Timeshare salespeople will usually take a “no” from a prospect and move on and turn their attention on the next tourist walking past their station.

Amway salespeople are disbelieving when people say “no” to buying Amway products or attending an Amway meeting. They will argue for lengthy periods of time using every denial tactic they’ve learned from their upline cult leaders.

Timeshare salespeople are generally fairly polite to disinterested parties who have said no. They’re representing a corporation and don’t want pissed off prospects hitting the Internet bitching about their company and the rude behavior of the salespeople.

Amway salespeople are extremely rude to disinterested parties. Amway salespeople will  sneer at anyone who says no and call them losers or broke losers. Amway salespeople don’t give a flying fuck that pissed off prospects hit the Internet bitching about their rude antics and Amway products. Amway the corporation doesn’t give a flying fuck either about the bad image their salespeople give them.

Timeshare salespeople probably have some luck persuading prospects to attend a meeting. Some people don’t mind sitting in a room getting the old timeshare pitch, turning them down, and walking off with whatever prize has been given to them. Maybe its worth a couple of hours of their time sitting inside a high pressure sales meeting to get free tickets into Disneyworld.

Amway salespeople don’t have a lot of luck persuading prospects to attend Amway meetings. Amway’s bad reputation precedes them. Its hard to find people open to being scammed in a pyramid scheme. Sitting through several hours of a meeting listening to some cult leader spout off his bullshit is not everyone’s idea of fun especially if there’s nothing in it for them for wasting their time.

If you go to a timeshare meeting and act disinterested the salesperson may up the ante of the prizes they’re offering.

If you go to an Amway meeting and act disinterested the ambots will mock you.

If you tell a timeshare salesperson that you’re unemployed, have poor credit, no money in the bank, etc they will lose interest in you real fast because they know you won’t get through the credit check portion of their application.

If you tell an Amway salesperson that you’re unemployed, have poor credit, no money in the bank, etc they will jump all over you and tell you that now is the perfect time for you to get on board with Amway and how rich you’re going to be in a few months.

Sometimes you might find a timeshare condo that you like and want to purchase it.

You will never find an Amway product that you like and no intelligent human being would ever get involved in Amway as a salesperson without brainwashing tactics put upon them by an Amway cult leader.

In summation its easier to escape a rabid timeshare salesperson than a deranged Amway salesperson.


  1. To hustle away a deranged or nicey nice scAmway person I wanted to try out my latest anti-scAmway ambot zinger - i.e. my new swapper checkmate I mean CheckAmbot. Recently I asked a friendly approaching couple for a buisness location, P&L and balance sheet statements reveal intent. They offered the usual Amscam rhetoric of equivocation, no surprises there. With a smile I asked if they were really talking about a ménage à trois? Zappo, it worked! You should have seen the look of horror on this pretend pious-it's-a-ministry-"business" as they took off with the usual fakey god bless you con talk. Put to further testing I reckon it will pass more tests without a hitch.

    1. ExAmbot - shocking those ambot prudes is always a good escape tactic. You'd be surprised at how many searchers end up at my blog searching for "Amway Sex". Good thing I obliged them a few months ago with a post just for them.

  2. Buying at timeshare full of deceiveness is not a one man job. There is a process that starts from the timeshare salespeople that contacted you at the airport, the street or the lobby of your hotel to the last person which would be the customer service department.

  3. Timeshares are clearly not for most people, however, they are constantly offered to anyone who is on vacations. Although there are lots of people who agree going to the presentation just to get the freebies, unfortunately, many of them end up falling for the trap.

    1. Mikasa - some could say that Amway is clearly not for most people too!

  4. Timeshare industry has experienced a considerable growth over the last years. On the surface, it looks like it is a reliable market and an innovative way to vacation; on the other hand, timeshare frauds are happening on a daily basis, putting thousands of families in a critical financial situation and taking millions of dollars each year. Such conflict has created lots of misinformation about timeshares, and most timeshare myths come from timeshare salespeople.

  5. Timeshare sales are carefully orchestrated routines that involve several staff members in order to ensure that the majority of the timeshare presentations result in a sale of a timeshare contract. The following article outlines the common players in the timeshare presentations, and the scams that each timeshare salespeople is trained to tell the potential client.

  6. The first thing you need to watch out is the sales pitch. If the timeshare salespeople are overly aggressive, they are probably trying to scam you. They might also give you many promises, but without any written confirmation, therefore, do not believe everything you hear. Also, keep in mind that purchasing timeshares under construction might be a risky business. Before you buy, you need to be sure you are going to be able to use your timeshare every year. It is also very important that you take your time to do a thorough research on the company.

  7. Timeshares can be a terrific purchase for some families, as they also can be a giant rip off for others. 50 years ago, also known as Holiday Home Sharing or timeshare travel, timeshares were created with the idea of offering fully furnished accommodations for a lower price than a full-time ownership. Nowadays, timeshares have become a very popular vacation option, yet lots of people do not completely understand how timeshares operate.

  8. Thousands of International travelers, particularly from the US and Canada, have fallen victims of timeshare fraud while vacationing. Resort developers hire skilled salesmen to represent their timeshares as many different attractive packages, such as financial investments, deeded properties, or vacation clubs, just to increase their sales.


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.
