Holy Shit I've Been Amwayed!

Here's a fun ditty about Dick Devos, Amway,and some of the scams and scandals surrounding the Amway cult. Its one of these things that you have to listen to twice because the first time around you're reading about the scams and missing the lyrics. Second time listen to the words! Its pretty funny. And the scandals some of these IBO's - most I think were Diamonds - have been involved in. Like we need any further proof that the only people who do well in Amway are the IBO's who already have a mindset to be swindlers and scam others!

Anyway we are off down the Baja for a few in our neverending quest for the best margarita. The banana who keeps the blog up and running and uploads new posts is around and taking care of things and the banana who moderates comments is around and taking care of them so it'll be going pretty much the same. I won’t be responding to comments while I’m away because its just too stupid to bring expensive technology on this kind of vacation. I’ll be checking the recent posts when I return and responding to comments left on them. Or maybe not if I’m Tequila’ed out.
And don’t get Amwayed while I’m gone!


  1. The Ambots getting swindled are probably mostly other upper-level Ambots (direct and above), who have the money to invest. So it's swindlers swindling swindlers. That's not bad, that's karma.

    As for the few lower-level grunts who got talked into cashing in their 401Ks to invest in a swindle, that is truly sad, but probably inevitable. They got taken all at once rather than one rally/tape/energy bar at a time. I hope they got at least some of their money back.

  2. Anna, have you seen AmwayUS' facebook ads? It seems they got screwed over. A lot of people are telling the truth, and people seeing Amway ads are seeing people telling the truth right under them!

  3. I think Pat Boone sang this, while he was a distributor. He was at one time a celebrity endorser for Amway in the early days. He was supposedly an emerald in Amway, as was Clint Eastwood. The idea behind these celebrity endorsers was to lend credibility to the scam.
    You can count on me NOT being Amwayed ever again! :)

  4. Another Amway IBO bites the dust in Tax Court. Case is a pretty good read. Would appreciate your comment on forbes.

    1. That story seems the same as so many others with their Amway beliefs. In this case a medical professional was involved and had more money to buy Amway products than the average IBO, therefore higher losses to deduct against a higher income. In Amway we're taught that everything is a tax deduction and to offset the Amway expenses against the income from our jobs and we'll receive a nice tax refund.


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.
