How social fabric is getting damaged due to Amway-like companies

It is already mentioned how a number of fraudulent companies have been luring the gullible people to join their schemes. With the bait of easy and quick money, people generally attracted and lose their hard-earned money. Since all these schemes are pre-planned and pre-meditated, few people venture to lodge a police complaint, forget about discussing it with their friends or relatives. That is the real tragedy.
While some people keep on propagating that a lot of money could be earned through such schemes showcasing a handful of people, millions of people who burnt their fingers prefer to remain silent. That is the bigger tragedy.
The biggest tragedy is people who lost their money in these fraudulent schemes after they were introduced by their friends or relatives, never trust them in future. That is how the social fabric of our society is being damaged.
The remedy is to encourage the losers to file criminal cases against such companies leaving aside their friends and relatives. But the problem is they never realise that they lost their money due to the fraudulent scheme. Morever, they are told that because of their inefficiency they lost their money. They are also not aware that there is an enactment called the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978. Even several advocates are also not aware of that enactment.
Be it Amway, Herbalife, Forever Living Products or lesser known indigenous companies, they all work alike and cheat people at large.
That is why there is a need to bring awareness among people about these fraudulent schemes of various companies.
