    Looks like HLF lied to Senator Market in their letter to his staff

    they said "members are compensated from profit derived from direct product sales to customers" How can they know this since they do not track or record this? All they can honestly say is that We pay up line distributors when they recruit down line distributors who order product from us. We have no idea what happens to that product because we dont track it we dont track it because doing so would be very detrimental to our continued existence

    • And once again hudget the HYPOCRITE is a LIAR. HLF does not track the retail sales because they have THOUSANDS of distributors that run INDEPENDENT businesses selling product at different price points. For example, Walmart is the proverbial whale of a distributor. They buy from thousands of companies and resell to the poor and middle class low cost goods. Some times they use products as LOSS LEADERS, or they sell at a LOSS to get the customer in the door. Every product of the thousands they sell could have a different margin on it. ALL HLF distributors are the same, just on a different scale, some may GIVE a shake away for free AS A LOSS LEADER and they may garner a customer for months. That is just good salesmanship. Another distributor may have a BUNCH of clients or customers and decide since they sell more they reduce the price and make a little less. EVERY single distributor will be different.

      That is WHY, in the research paper that you pasted here just days ago said, the authors said, tracking retail sales of all the distributors would be next to IMPOSSIBLE.

      So in closing hudget, I have shown once again what a LYING hypocrite you are.

    • This is Hudgets thesis,,,,,,,,HLF disributors will sell at a loss because they are stupid embarrassed and brainwashed.Have you decided to account for the 70 to 80 percent that are saving 25% on their purchase with no intention with the business opp.

    • hudget, does NIKE track its shoes once it sells a truck load of them to Walmart? WHY NOT? Are they now a pyramid scheme based on your pathetic attempt at making Hackmans talking point? Once NIKE sells a truck load of shoes to Walmart, THE DISTRIBUTOR, NIKE books the revenue and they have NO IDEA if Walmart gives it away, uses it as a loss leader or makes 100% off of it. THEY don't track it and Walmart as an independent enterprise will not give them the information.

      SAME principle with HLF and their independent distributors, just a much smaller scale. I know you won't respond because I make you look like a foolish twit and you HAVE NO response. I will continue to make you look like a fool as long as you are here. You can ignore me but EVERYONE else can see what an idiot you are. PLUS, I truly enjoy it.
