If one person wishes to become a 'wholesaler' he has to look for 100 downline members under him. Here is the hiccup. Where do you find 100 downline members? That it is why it is called endless chain and a mathematical impossibility.
If Amway products are of that great quality and could be sold at any price they wish, they could do the same in a regular business model. But the Company cannot fleece public in the name of membership fee and annual renewal fee which is nothing but unjust enrichment. This is what Andhra Pradesh High Court has pointed out in its judgement.
People in the upline always line their pockets showing a mirage to the downliners that they too can become like them in near future. This is the Amway scam.One can be woken up if one is really sleeping. You cannot wake up a person who is pretending.
The excuse of new market, untested local manufacturer and so forth arguments hold no water. That is why they are no longer discussed.
Read the latest news in the Times about the state of Amway in UK and still pretend that everything is fine.
