    Ackman did the world a great service

    by bringing up many excellent points about this pyramid scheme. Now many hispanic leaders have also joined in calling for action by the FTC to put an end to this exploitation. After doing my due diligence I am also leaning heavily on the side a thorough investigation is necessary. The main reason I think this is that HLF comes forth with NO evidence of retail profits being made by distributors in spite of the ease with which they could obtain this information.

    • Both Ackman and you will pay for attempting to damage the company you just in the market. Ackman well we will see.He may find covering while expensive will be cheaper than court and the loss of his ability to run a fund again.

    • Ackman runs a legal ponsi-scheme, he should have no problems with a pyramid scheme since he believes if you make money off of something it isn't wrong or immoral. What's your IQ...55?

    • Sorry hudget, his ppt presentation was full of inaccuracies. Funny, but the Latino people actually in the business and clients don't feel exploited. Maybe someone should ask us.

      • Your leaders are speaking loud and clear. The main point to me is "show me that distributors actually make a profit selling this stuff at retail". That is what HLF needs to prove to get this stock price in line with even other MLM's. But they bring forth no proof. They commission lame studies when they have the data readily available which is VERY SUSPICIOUS to me. Maybe distributors make a profit selling at retail but logic says NO WAY. No barriers to entry, no territories, unlimited recruiting, over priced products, non differentiated commodity products, over saturation of markets all point to the only way to make money for distributors is selling to the network and recruiting. Time will tell and a through FTC investigation as called for by many hispanic leaders would also be telling. If this company is LEGIT they should welcome more investigations.

    • Hudget has been BASHING HLF for months. He is a PROVEN liar and many of us on this board have proven him to be as such. Have a nice day hud.

    • Ackman did his investors a great service in JCP and HLF. He is LOSING their money.

      Funny stuff hudget.
