Now let us have a look at Direct Selling. The Amway, the mother of all scams, claims that it is direct selling that is beneficial to the consumers. They claim that there is little or no advetisements for its products. It's another matter that now they are advertising heavily through elctronic and print media.
If a product is sold to the customers directly, the customer would sure reap benefits as it avoids a lot of intermediaries -- stockists, wholesale dealers, retail dealers. But in the case of Amway, it is different. Inspite of the claim, there are a large number of Intermediaries in the name of IBOs. Each one of them collect huge percentage of commission at each and every level. So, naturally the end-consumer ends in paying a hefty price for all the products. To cover its cheating of exorbitant price of its products, Amway claims that its products are of high quality which is a hoax. What the gullible people do not realise is that they are paying high price for the products and getting peanuts in the name of commission.
My dear fellow humans all over world! Listen carefully! These Amway apologists keep on boasting that this is a 'GOOD, PROVEN BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY'. But in fact, this is not. It is a closed market swindle and you end up buying products at an exorbitant price. It is not at all a good, proven business opportunity but outright cheating to empty your pockets and a crime under provisions of the Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.
Save your money, enjoy it with your family and if you have excess money there are lot of poor people who need help. Don't give away your hard-earned money to these crooks like Amway.
