A Mistress Called Amway Scamway

Usually it is our husbands who are approached by a friend who tells them about an amazing business opportunity. A home based business where they work 10 to 15 hours a week and can earn an extra $1000 a month or more by selling Amway products and signing up other IBO’s who will also purchase Amway products and sign up others to do the same, and so on and so on. At first the wife might be sceptical. You know the old phrase about how if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. The numbers look good on paper but in actuality it doesn’t seem believable that this can this be pulled off.

When our husbands get excited about something we want to be supportive. It doesn’t take long before we stop being supportive and end up getting more and more pissed off. Husband is sneaking around like he has a mistress on the side. And sure enough he does. A mistress called Amway. He’s out of the house for endless hours attending Amway meetings sneaking back in the house in the early morning hours after we’ve gone to sleep. He’s spending money like crazy on his mistress. Money he doesn’t have so he uses a line of credit, home equity loan, or credit cards. You know when he whips out the plastic he pretends he’s not really paying for it. After all it is a pretend business. That is until the bills roll in and then paying back real money is not so pretend any more.

After awhile the wife has had enough. She never sees her husband and their bank account is diminishing while their debt is going through the roof. “Choose your mistress or choose me.” Fortunately most men come to their senses and realize for all their hard work, time, and effort they are not getting the money back that was dangled in front of them when they were first looking into this exciting business opportunity and they stop going to Amway meetings and throwing away their money.

That’s the short version of every wife’s horror tale about their husband’s Amway mistress.

Many of us are lucky enough to have our ambots come to their senses. Usually because they’ve had enough of the upline’s abuse and the realization that the promised riches ain’t never gonna happen. All the ambots who promised to be best friends forever and ever abandon him. Can be kind of tough on some men who actually liked these people and thought they liked him. Wrong. They only liked his money because he was helping make their dreams come true.

Its time to send out another big old FUCK YOU to Amway!


  1. Anna this practically makes me want to cry for these poor women and their families. Anti-Amway activism is so important. Thank you for your blog.

    1. Thanks Howdedoo. Watching a husband who joins any cult that devastates people financially and emotionally is gut wrenching. Painful. Hell. Amway the Cult of Greed needs to be stopped. So happy their 2017 revenue is down again. Not the big drops as in the past few years but down is down. Sharing our Amway stories on the Internet is very important to help people not get sucked into Amway Scamway.

  2. Anna, who is that guy that I remember reading about here that roped your Ambot into this that isn't allowed in your house anymore, but still comes and parks outside for your Ambot to come outside and talk to him? Was he one of the uplines? I can't seem to find the post. Does he still stop by? Has he gone on to another MLM? Has he tried to rope Ambot into another MLM?

    1. Howdedoo you're talking about the fucking asshole that convinced Ambot that tithing our money to the Great Amway God would be a great business opportunity. Sounds pretty stupid when spelled out like that. Yes he still shows up and parks outside. Every now and then my husband's text goes off and he says he's going out for coffee. And he leaves. But his car is still here. Hmmmm. When our sack of shit Platinum got fired from Amway he went to Monavie. Not uncommon for Amway defectors. I think he was also doing Monavie when we were in Amway. He had some in his fridge once that he shared when we were at his house. He took most of his downline with him from what I can tell including the motherfucker who likes to go for coffee. And yes he tried to rope him into Monavie. I'm guessing the dumb fuck is in another MLM today but I don't know which one.

  3. Good news! My sister-in-law is finally quitting Amway. She moved to Washington from Idaho about 6 months ago, hoping to have more success being geographically closer to upline (and expensive Portland functions). Thusfar? No success. At least with Amway. She's decided this summer that she's going to spend a lot of time fishing; there are some predatory fish that eat salmon eggs in her area, and the fish-and-game department pays a bounty for each one of these buggers you get, and that's her plan to make-it-rich (or at least actually bring in some money) instead of Amway.

    I'm happy for her; instead of wasting time being a salesperson for stuff no one wants, she's going to be spending her time with her hubby doing a hobby that she actually enjoys--and if the fish are biting, bringing in some money.

    1. Hi Alyssa. I'm glad to hear your sister in law finally saw the light. Or the never-ending debt that Amway brings! Interesting on the move. The Puryears who are at the top of the pyramid and are the cult leaders of the WWDB sect are in Idaho. Unless they finally sold that house after all these years of dropping the price!

      The move is a huge thing that happens in the Amway cult. The fucking assholes in your Amway upline tell you to move because you'll be closer to your cult leaders or whatever reason and the Ambots move. It's frightening the control these bastards have over their followers. Brainwashing at its finest.

      It sounds like your sister will have a hobby that she can make money off. If that department is paying a bounty on vicious fishes and she has a fishing pole, that sounds like the way to go. She'll make more money than spending $300+ a month in Amway to make back $10 commission and she won't have to put up with the fucking assholes in the Amway upline. Win!


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.
