More Proof That Amway Is A Pyramid Scheme

I found an article written by a lawyer that asks the question - Is this a pyramid or a legitimate MLM?

Here’s the checklist:

1.  Product and Price
2.  No Investment Required
3.  Purchase and Inventory Requirements
4.  Sales Commissions Sources
5.  Buy-Back Policy
6.  Retail Sales
7.  Active Role for Distributors
8.  Earnings Misrepresentations
9.  Good Training

The first point about product and price, the first two sentences. Does the company offer a high quality product for which there is a strong demand in the real world marketplace? Is the product fairly priced and priced competitively with similar products?

A brainwashed ambot will chant about how Amway offers high quality products and they’re fairly priced due to their high quality. Fuck I’ve heard that over and over so many times it makes me want to puke! To the first question I say NO. Amway products are not high quality. For the most part they are generic or substandard to similar products easily available in the marketplace. Amway comes with a premium price tag for its low quality products so that answers the second question about whether or not its fairly priced.

Is there any point in picking about the rest of the list? Click on the link and read the descriptions and clearly Amway fails on the other 8 points too. Maybe IBO’s can’t see it when they’re in Amway and brainwashed to believe everything they read on the Internet is a lie but someone looking at this checklist with a clear mind sees Amway getting a failing grade.

Pyramid scheme!!!!!

On the flip side a brainwashed ambot will look at every single point and also says it applies to Amway. Good prices for good products, good training, earnings are not misrepresented, they’ll brag about a return policy when they’ve probably never tried to return anything themselves and had to deal with Amway's I-don't-give-a-fuck customer service desk.

Those brainwashed ambots will justify every one of those points is further proof that Amway is a legitimate MLM business.


Its a pyramid scheme!!!!  The proof is in the pudding. Just don’t eat Amway’s shitty pudding!


  1. Don't let lawyers define pyramid schemes. That's secondary. First a pyramid scheme is an economic phenomenon. Based on pure economics 101, a pyramid scheme is a recruiting scheme with illusory earnings, except for the top conspirators. It is a recruiting scheme as soon as recruiting of participants who are presumed sellers is unlimited, for by pure economic math "under perfect competition profits go to zero." Meaning under unlimited recruiting the sales end of the business MUST be profitless in the end. Ergo it is a recruiting scheme and never a direct sales business. Once the lawyers under stand that, maybe we can get somewhere.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Rogier. I guess we shouldn't ask you how you feel about the lawyer who runs the Pyramid Scheme Alert website!

      Profitless. That's a good description of what happens to over 99% of Amway's participants. Also broke and in debt.


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.
