Helpful Amway Links
Its time to update links that can help people trying to quit Amway or those who are looking for more information. From time to time I’ve brought up links to items that are useful to people searching for answers about Amway. Recently a few links have come up again in the comments section so for anyone that missed some of these or any new readers, these might be useful reading and listening. Anything you feel worthy to add leave in the comments and we'll update this page.
Merchants of Deception was written by former Emerald Eric Scheibeler. He talks about the brainwashing and how he only earned about $35,000/year when he was at a level where he expected to be earning at least 100k based on Amway propaganda and what he’d heard from Diamond speakers. He uncovered the real money to be made in Amway was the sale of motivational materials - books, tapes/CDs, and speaking at functions. Its a really chilling read at times. Everything he said about Amway meetings I heard the same thing too. I could have been there. What he described was what I’d experienced. And most importantly he tells how 99% of IBOs will never make money in Amway. Reading it shows the lies that were told to us were the same lies he heard and the realization that no matter how hard we tried to make money at Amway, it just ain’t possible.
A few years ago NBC Dateline exposed the Amway scam. They covered the brainwashing and showed scenes at arenas that show this cult in action. They catch IBO’s lying - not that that’s difficult! They all lie! The above author Eric Scheibeler is interviewed for this TV show. Part one and two.
Steve Hassan has helped deprogram former Amway cult members and members of other mind control cults as well. There is a 2 part interview on Youtube about the Amway cult.
Pyramid Scheme alert has resources and they deal with all pyramid schemes, not just Amway.
And one of our readers wants everyone to know of this particular link on their page interview with Eric Scheibler: http://pyramidschemealert.org/resources/WhatAboutThisOne.mp3
And of course there are links to other bloggers who share their Amway experiences on the upper right hand side of this page.
Part 3 of the Steve Hassan video
This video was crazy to watch, which shows a lot of former Amway diamonds who are no longer diamonds.
