It seems that some people think that paying taxes to the government makes their business legitimate. They are not doing a favour to the country. By paying taxes they are just fulfilling their duty.
Many GoldQuest independent owners openly claimed that they have been paying income tax and their business was legitimate. Once Corporate Frauds Watch filed criminal cases against them and their bosses, they realised that it was a crime. Now a sizable number of them are facing criminal cases.
Now Amway adherents claim that they have been paying taxes to the government whichever country they are in. In fact, I have established earlier that no IBO gives a receipt to any retail customer if he has one. That means he is not paying sales tax to the government.
The question is whether their business model is legal or not. Amway India is trying its best to postpone the trial and also trying to bring undue influence on the bureaucrats and others. Still, there are a number of honest people in India and it is wrong on the part of Amay to think it could buy off everybody.
Now, simply go to Amway India website, which tells that a member could earn Rs. 56, 500 every month if he could enrol 102 members or complete one leg. That itself is a money circulation scheme and it was proved in the Andhra Pradesh High Court. When we are talking of legitimacy of the business, these crooks talk of something else all the time.
The government officer I have referred to in my earlier blog is the project director of rural development in a district in Andhra Pradesh who told me that rural people became cleverer and they do not fall for this type of money circulation schemes.
