Pyramid Schemes

(to see SPANISH version of this post click here)

The industry of direct sales or network marketing is very big and beautiful, unfortunately among many legitimate companies are also many more illegitimate ones, looking back at history we can learn, and make better choices about what company we belong too.

During recent years many pyramids have appeared which are very attractive because of their appearance to make money fast, many of them have closed many others are under investigation , many have closed in other countries and are under investigation in the United States. People will always have a way to justify a company been legit because of the ambition to make money fast. Keep this in mind, a company might have products and still be accused of being a pyramid scheme if the products are not been sold outside the network, take a good look at the company you are in or you are about to join because if the compensation plan only pays out for recruiting and does not compensate you well for selling it might be a pyramid scheme, if a company only promotes recruiting and never talks about its products or services it could also be a pyramid scheme. This is a summary of companies closed by the government, the sad thing is that people do not know this, and today there are many companies operating with the same characteristics of these ones already closed, so be alert and learn from these 25 closed pyramid schemes so you can make a wise and informed decision when choosing a LEGAL company:

If you want to know if your company is LEGITIMATE just ask yourself one question, if you do not recruit anyone into the business, can you really make money? , if the only way to make significant money is recruiting, then you are in a pyramid scheme!, that’s the biggest sign that could see and that is what the government will look at!. A company might offer ads on the internet, cellphones, ecommerce services, discounts on travel, products or more as shown on the previous list: the truth is that if these services or products are only used by the distributors and the percentage of services or products that are being sold to people outside the network is very little then it could fall under a pyramid scheme category!. People probably criticize companies like Herbalife, Mary Kay or Tupperware, but I assure you that in these companies if you do not recruit anyone and you go out to sell the products you pay your rent, your car and your bills , that is the reason why these companies are legal; of course it is true they also sponsor people into the network but each person has the opportunity to earn money without sponsoring and the product is sold outside the network so they do not have a money exchange disguised behind a product or are a pyramid scheme. In a legal company distributors consume the product but that product is also consumed every day by many costumers whom are not distributors.

This is just a though:

• It is sad to choose a company that closes leaving lots of people losing money.

• It is very sad to see how the owners of all these companies that are being closed by the government opening more companies with the same concept and how people start again to fall into the illusion of making money without doing anything.

• It is even sadder to see people whom call themselves leaders advising people to follow them to other pyramid schemes promoting them again the: make quick money without any efforts or sales, that shows lack of integrity if you ask me!.

• In my opinion it is better to find a legal network marketing company in which to build a future, what is your opinion?

• 95% of this list of companies closed by the government, promoted some kind of service on the internet without having a real product, the few who had a real product were closed because the product was not sold outside the network and money was only made by recruiting.

If you want to see even more companies that have been closed or closed voluntarily look at this list.
