Woman “Dates” Amway Ambot

I've heard from a reader who got the old Amway pitch when she thought she was going out on a date. She's smart enough not to throw any money at a scheme drawn up on a napkin. Her date is the typical arrogant Amway asshole. Sneering at her because she's going to school instead of signing up for the much cheaper Amway University and automatically getting her teaching degree. And in typical Amway asshole fashion sneers at people who work J.O.B.s and insults teacher's pay. Like an Amway Ambot's pay of around $10/month is anything to brag about. And none of us really think this lying Amway bastard is really making 100k! LOL! There's no end to creepy shit that Amway Ambots pull off. Trolling online dating sites for prospects to suck into the Amway cult just doesn't seem shocking once you know all the bullshit these scammers pull off.

Hi Anna- first off, let me say I love your blog. Second, I was propositioned by an "ambot" for the first time on Saturday. What made it so strange was that the pitch occurred DURING A FIRST DATE.

I feel compelled by pride to state up front that I am a pretty girl. I watch what eat, I dress well, and I have great hair. It's important that I point that out, otherwise the whole story has a very sad "lonely lady" feel to it. I'm in my late 20s and like most singles I have an online dating profile. About 2 weeks ago I got a message from a guy on the site; he was cute and my age and sent a very flattering and detailed message to me. I responded back, and for about a week and a half we messaged a bit. Looking back there were some red flags; his profile said he was self employed and listed his income as $100k. That in itself is unusual; people rarely if ever list their personal income for obvious reasons. Also, when I told him I was a grad student he was like "well, that's good for you...I'm more of an independent ambitious type of guy so I could never work for someone else". Again- big red flag (because I'm in grad school for education, and he's the first person I've ever met to kinda scoff at teaching). But....he was cute. So when he asked me out for coffee I didn't think twice about going.

I get to the coffee shop on Sat afternoon, and the first thing I notice is he's dressed up. Like, he's wearing a tie. It's Sat afternoon in a coffee shop in Buffalo NY- no one wears a tie. So we started talking; at first light getting to know you chit chat but quickly it gets very focused on me. On my financial situation- how am I paying for grad school? Do I find the need to take out loans? Do I have to work a job on the side? And then he started saying things about teaching; about how hard it is to get a teaching job, about how little they get paid, etc. I actually started feeling a little shitty; teachers DONT get paid that much. Then he laid down his line; it was something to the effect of he didn't normally do this but he thought I was super cute and he liked me a lot, so he'd be willing to cut me in on this great business opportunity. Then he went into a pitch; he actually drew a profit to loss graph on a napkin. Ummmm....I may not be an MBA but I know enough about investing to never invest money for a scheme someone draws on a napkin.

He went on for about 15 min; I don't think I ever said a word. I figured out what was going on pretty quick- but I just could not believe this guys audacity. And also, his cluelessness. Because it's pretty audacious to say to yourself "Girls think I'm kinda sexy, so I'm going to hunt some down on OKCupid and scam them into a MLM". But it's also SO clueless. Here's this guy who's really good looking, he was charming and engaging....if he really wanted to dedicate himself to building a serious business, or working as a salesman in a well paying sales position (say at an auto dealership), he could do it. He's been blessed with the gifts of charm, attractiveness, and boldness and in other businesses he'd thrive. Instead, he's running a scam on 28 year old ladies- and the scam doesn't even work. I didn't sign up, he's still broke, and he didn't even get laid (which probably wouldn't have happened on Sat anyways, but at least he had a shot before he started the Amway shit)

Post a Comment

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.
