Multi-Level Marketing Jobs (Pyramid Schemes)
The economy is tanking and a multi-level marketing job -- perhaps listed as “network” or “matrix” marketing -- claims you can earn big bucks in no time. It sounds too good to be true… and unfortunately it is.
Multi-level marketing is a system of selling goods or services in which you sign up other people to work for you and they, in turn, recruit others to work for them. You earn commissions on your sales and on the sales of your recruits. You can build a successful company on this model if you focus both on products and product sales. But if a promoter offers to pay you a commission for recruiting new distributors, watch out. Most states outlaw this practice, also known as a “pyramid” scheme.
State laws against pyramid schemes require that you only receive commissions for selling goods or services, not for recruiting new distributors. Any fee you pay to join a pyramid scheme is money lost.
Postal Inspectors offer guidance to help you decide whether a job offer is an illegal pyramid scheme:
Avoid plans that pay commissions for recruiting distributors.
Avoid plans that ask new distributors to purchase expensive inventory -- they can collapse quickly.
Be wary of plans claiming you’ll make money through commissions on sales from new recruits, rather than through your own sales.
Beware of “miracle products” or promises of enormous earnings. Ask promoters to back claims with hard evidence.
Beware of shills -- “decoy” references paid by a plan’s promoter to describe their fictional success in earning money through the plan.
Don’t pay promoters or sign contracts in an “opportunity meeting” or other high-pressure situation. Insist on taking time to think over your decision to join, and then talk it over with your spouse, a knowledgeable friend, an accountant, or a lawyer.
Check with your local Better Business Bureau and state Attorney General about any plan you’re considering -- especially if the offers sounds too good to be
Dozens of protesters with signs saying "Stop Exploiting Us" stood outside the Los Angeles convention center to urge Kamala Harris, the state's attorney general, and Bob Lee, the Santa Cruz District Attorney, to investigate what they call predatory business practices and review how the $6.7 billion company targets minorities.
"We are asking Attorney General Harris to help us protect vulnerable, low income Latinos and other minorities from these schemes that have cost people their life savings," said Angelica Salas, Executive Director, C
It is obvious they are operating a scam and the American people know it so it appears the only places left on planet earth they can do biz is third world developing nations with no regulators or thugs that can be "financially encouraged" to look the other way.
Likewise, if the sales of the "opportunity" rest largely on deception, this calls sustainability in question on one hand, and invites regulatory intervention on the other-for business opportunity fraud. This may or may not rise to the level of a "pyramid scheme," but the deceptive element never builds a lasting business, and is open to challenge on multiple fronts at all times.
gorditoflutiepootie, I pay my chamber maid more than you will ever make trying to be long this POS. I realize U R stupid but even stupid people now recognize that johnson & clan are in all out repair mode from what they know is going to be a Cease & Desist order issued soon.

Do you really think johnson & clan would give back the money they have received by selling this worthless POS stock to monkey's like you???? If so, I have some beautiful ocean front property on the southern city limits of Omaha I want to sell you.
Hudget has the capability of rational thought...something U do NOT have gordiflutie & the rest of your sicko pseudonyms
U R totally dense. Consider the MILLIONS of failed distributors that will join Dana Bostick vs Herbalife??? R U capable of rational thought??
It's almost as if a reverse pyramid scheme is forming of ex-distributors. Their ranks are growing in numbers. Their anti-marketing campaign will only get worse. Word of mouth has built Herbalife, but it's also word of mouth that could ironically topple it. Investors should steer clear of Herbalife or they may end up collecting bottles and cans themselves.
Imagine if I were to tell you about a company that has 96.4% of its sales force making less than a bottle and can collector, 88% of its sales force will make nothing, and more than half of the few who do make a few bucks won't make anything a year later. Would it sound like a healthy company with a business model that can sustain itself long term?
