Fraud is defined in all civilized countries as, lying to people in order to take their money. It is a form of theft. Today, law enforcement agencies in many countries treat major fraud committed behind a corporate structure, or labyrinths of corporate structures, in a different way to how they treat minor fraud committed by an individual. Indeed, recent history proves that law enforcement agents are just as likely to fall victim to corporate frauds as any other citizen. Currently, in the UK, the fraudulent activities of a counterfeit company like 'Amway UK Ltd.' only risk coming under initial investigation from civil regulators who have no power to prosecute criminal offences. That said, in the UK, the setting up of a money circulation scheme based on the pernicious lie that endless chains of recruitment can produce endless profits for the recruits, is a criminal offence which can lead to a prison term of 2-4 years, but the same crime can be dressed up as 'Direct Selling'or 'Multilevel Marketing Scheme,' and this (more-sustainable variation) has never been fully-defined in UK law. Apart from applying common sense, the only way to prove that an illegal money circulation scheme has been in operation, is to discover if the scheme has had any significant and sustainable revenue from a source, and/or sources, other than its own contributing recruits. If it hasn't, then its closed market swindle, in which ill-informed participants have been peddled infinite shares in their own finite money. Closed-markets are inherently fraudulent, but again as recent history proves, if you set up such a camouflaged swindle to lure people into secondary advance fee frauds (or 'Tool Scams') which are hidden behind further labyrinths of (apparently independent) corporate structures, then the chances of you being held to account are pretty slim in a country like the UK. However, the setting up of such a criminogenic system is what is defined in the USA, and some other countries, as a pattern of major racketeering activity. Racketeering is punishable in the USA by a maximum prison term of 25 years and a maximum fine of $250 000 per racketeering count.
I'm sure, shyam, that you and your readers will agree that (in view of this wider-picture) my lucid description of the unmasked 'Amway'Squealer, Mr. David J. Steadson, as, an amoral little shit with a psychology degree, and his de facto associates as, a vile little flock of intellectually-castrated 'Amway' apologists, is an accurate (and even restrained) use of the English language. Indeed, I have had certain destitute 'Amway' victims contacting me whose uncontrollable anger (in respect of Mr. Steadson and his de facto bosses) is truly shocking to hear. Furthermore, it beggars belief that Mr. Steadson (someone who has steadfastly pretended moral and intellectual authority and who has even boasted of his 'academic qualifications in the field of psychology' ), can be proud of his use of such a puerile and abusive word as,'nutcase.'
Self-evidently, the ugly truth about what lurks behind 'Amway' and its copy-cats which we have been calmly posting on your Site, cannot be refuted by anyone, let alone Mr. Steadson. Therefore (typically of an amoral little shit with psychology degree who has been co-opted by billionaire racketeers to obstruct justice), Mr. Steadson's only tactics now, are to revert to attempted character-assassination and 'Bull-Baiting' of all persons challenging the authenticity of his group's absurd, but nonetheless pernicious, Utopian myth. This is why other well-informed people have suggested to me that Mr. Steadson might well have received some, or all, of his training in 'Scientology.'
