I didn't get sucked in but almost so I can only agree with some of the things here. The first time I got introduced to it, I was a freshman in college. The girl who gave he info was like a waterfall. I stood underneath it and continuously poured info nonstop barely stopping for a question I squeezed in. That was the first flag.
I went to a meeting of theirs. First thing I noticed was that the girl had aggressively messaged me to go and I had since I had finished everything that was needed of me and I had nothing else to do. Second red flag.
The meeting was intense. When the top upline of the town came in, some people were cheering as if their favorite sports team won something or their favorite singer came in. Basically at the top of their lungs. 3rd red flag.
That was the end of that. I still see some of the people at my university (they were also college students) pitching the Amway message. I kind of feel pity as their expressions expressed insecurity and desperation for money. But someday they could rise out of their hole. Now everything, I get a message on facebook, I just delete them just because its annoying as hell. I am certainly not making the first mistake again.
Btw, this is in New Jersey. My college Rutgers has these people like other universities that do this. All of my friends just ignore them. Best leave it that way.
