Herbalife, Amway are like twins out to cheat people

For a change, let us look at the way how Herbalife is cheating people. First you come across advertisements offering to reduce your weight or help you put on weight. Generally people are attracted to these advertisements for the reason obesity is a big problem all over the world and few people are interested to sweat it out to shed the flab. They want to lose weight without raising a hand like many want to earn money without working hard and saving.
First you would be invited to their office and they take your measurements and weight. They later pronounce that you are overweight and there is an immediate urgency to bring down body weight. They introduce you Herbalife products and tell you how to use them. If you do not complain about the products well and good. They sell the exorbitantly priced soy powder and tell you how to use it.
If you complain that it is expensive, they tell you to become a member-distributor by paying Rs. 2800 and earn a handsome commission by selling these products. The racket widens if you fall for it. They elaborate on the scheme to 'enlighten' you that if you purchase in bulk at a time you are entitled even a bigger commission. They say it is easy to sell these products because they are world class quality and sold in 80 countries.
If you are lured by the commission, then the trap is ready. You will realise only later after purchasing products worth Rs. one hundred thousand or more that it is virtually impossible to sell these products. By that time it would be too late. Now you start advertising in the same way to attract people's attention.
My dear fellow countrymen! There is nothing like short cut to shed extra kilos and no short cut to become rich. Do not fall prey for these machinations of these fraudsters. Save your money and work hard to achieve good health.

What abt herbalife and amway products result?

Ashutosh said...

All Multi Layer Marketing (MLM) companies are the same. Their products are exhorbitantly costly. If you complain they say "if you want a superior product you have to pay for it". There is nothing "superior" about their products. The quality is same as other similar products that you get in the market.The commission of all the "down line distributors" are added on to the price and that makes them expensive.The sad part is that they make you sell all these expensive products to your friends and relatives. Many a times you end up spoiling relations with them.A normal person doesnt like to be fleeced and a person with strong moral values does not sell exorbitant profit margin goods to his friends and relatives.Just because the MLM guys say the product is superior and justify the high selling price you also get carried away by the Sales Pitch.Have you seen any INDEPENDENT STUDY by any GOVERNMENT ORGANISATION attesting to their superior perfomance? When you go to the market to buy a Coconut worth Rs 10 (20 US Cents) you shake it, knock on it and see it throughly before you part with your money. Then why do you accept what these MLM sales people say at their face? These MLMs make you attend meetings where a number of "high selling sales people" are felicitated on stage for "selling" the highest amount of products and their incentive cheques are hand over to a large applause from the assembled people. This causes a inferiority complex in you. You start thinking "they are doing it & i am not". You start feeling inferior. You start measuring yourself in relation to all other MLM sales people. Normal life goes for a toss. You are so engrossed in your MLM work that any thing else doesnt matter. You are literally brain-washed.Most MLM sales people i met were "queer". Their presense makes you uncomfortable. If you have no qualm in fleecing your friends and relative of their hard earned money then this is your vocation. Butif you have some moral and sanity left in you,then keep out.

Bull-shit. Dude the people like me who are dealing with obesity, they have the easiest way to reduce the fats. Yes it is expensive but not more than your life. You can surely go for Herbal Life and you can also make it earn for you. People earn in crores. They are not stupid. They tried it ans tested it and then they are now successful.

hahaha... Mr.. Syam sunder.. Are u doing the job of criticizing someone works? Seems You are condemning all the MLM system.. yet some may be bad but that dose'nt mean that all those will be like the way u think. Have seen u strong condemning of Nmart too, and again herbalife, Amway..etc. If u want to stay more healthy, simply use the products either amway or herbalife and feel the difference, mr Shyamji.
Sir Kunal.. Don bother about Mr. Shyam Ji.. its his duty to criticize someone I guess. I myself is a Distributor (Supervisor) in Herbalife.

By the way Have you ever noticed that Royal Royce and Mercedes, have any commercials. Ans. is big NO RIGHT? wHY? Because the reason is they know the value of products and that brings the customers to them .... So the same thing is Herbalife and Amway. Suppose if you are obese or under weight and if your body is not getting sufficient nutrition food and if you are correcting your self at this time it will be late who knows it might be more the the cost you are referring herbalife and Amway products...

Shyam Sundar said...

Prasanna, what is Royal Royce? HAHAHA. Do you mean Rolls Royce

Siddharth Srinivasan said...

Frankly sir, giving all due respect to ur experience, have you ever tried being a part of Amway? If yes, the how long? and in case you have been a part of it for long and failed at making money I'd suggest you look at faults in yourself rather than this system. It is unfortunate if you have written this piece of shit just because you have not been able to make money that others have.

Shyam Sundar said...

Siddharth, on one hand you are saying due respect and on the other you are describing what I have written is shit. Can't you balance your statements?
Do you need to put your fingers on fire to know that it burns?
First let me know how much you are actually making money by selling Amway products. Be honest which is rare among IBOs.

jessie said...

well said, really good article. What you said is 100% true. Don't run behind products, take natural foods and do regular exercise. Beware of these Herbalife in chennai.

Hello ... I do not know about the side effects as I did not face it. I am using this product since last two months and i have reduced 8 kgs of weight in this period. I had tried many ways to reduce weight from last 2-3 years and did not success. I could loose just 2-3 kgs of weight and then regain. So I thought of using Herbalife product and got the results. It also helped me to improve my health conditions which I can not post here. But if you want you can call me

Shyam Sundar said...

If you could afford to buy costly Herbalife products it is up to you.
But eventually you would be induced to buy in bulk to get lot of profits. It would be difficult to sell the products. Watch it out.
Anyway, look for side effects.

Twisted Sister said...

Well. I've been consuming Herbalife for almost two months and I've already lost 10 lbs. But the best part is that I feel energized and I'm learning how to eat better. I've made friends at the nutrition club so that's a plus. I became a distributor so I can pay less than the usual client. Not a scam really. It's a person's choice to get involved and how deep they want to go into the business. My supervisor was clear with me, Herbalife is mainly about nutrition, not about weight-loss or healing but it is an assistance to inefficiencies in our diet. She also told me about the business side and her plans for the future.

What shyam & Ashutosh say are 100% true.they are telling a lot of lie during meetings. ( for example, " they say their co. is in fortune 500 co., when asked to show in any books /magazine, the person called me separately & told me that," I am working for salary. They are asking me to say like this, what to do?'.) their products are very costly & only one time only you can sell it your relatives/ friends. Next time they will start avoiding you. These are my experence
