Soon wall posters and bill boards would occupy every available space all over India begging people to contact so and so person to reduce weight and become lean. Of course, there would be no buyers and all of them are only sellers.
It is easy to understand that the topic is Herbalife. The posters suggest that health management is a new concept and by stopping eating natural food and by consuming Herbalife products, one could become really healthy.
Exactly, what are the ingredients in the Herbalife products? Are they safe? Do they list out the ingredients on the labels? Is the company paying sales tax on the maximum retail price mentioned on the label? Are the members who retail them giving receipts to purchasers? There are a number of questions seldom answered. The officials are either busy counting the bribe money or very busy to look at the trivial issues.
Whatever be the reason, of late, the number of victims is raising all over India. The smooth-talking sales persons are conducting meetings openly and inducing people to purchase products as it is a 'good business opportunity'. They give a euphemistic title of 'health management' to the victims. Already a sizable number of people became victims of this fraud and the authorities remain a mute spectators.
When Corporate Frauds Watch approached the police authorities with the complaint, they simply say that the CFW is not a victim and if the victims come forward with the complaints they would file criminal cases against the company, promoters, members, etc. No victims come forward to file a criminal complaint on the hope that he is going to earn a fortune by selling these unsaleable products which are exorbirantly priced.
After all, who would spend Rs. 7,500 every month for losing weight. Once you stop taking these products, there is every possibility you put on weight again taking you back to square one.
Dear fellow humans all over world! Come out open and file criminal cases against such fraudulent companies. You have nothing to lose. Realise the fact that you are never going to get back your money by selling the exorbitantly priced products. It is a Mirage!
