The modus operandi of all the crooks be it Amway India, Tupperware, Hindustan Unilever Network Ltd, Herbalife, Forever Living Products or some other indigenous cheats, is enroll gullible people and sell them products which could not be sold in the open market at that price.
For instance, Glister toothpaste costs only Rs. 16 but it is sold at Rs. 120 to the Amway India members.
So is the case with Forever Living Products. The Aloe Vera toothpaste is sold for Rs. 220 to the members of Forever Living Products. However, the members of FLP claim that they need not enroll new members. If they could sell the products with smooth talk and with tall claims of its therapeutic properties of Aloe Vera he gets some money. If he could enroll more members and sell them the products, he gets the real money.
The Supreme Court of India in its judgement in Kurichan Chacko case stated that plea of non-involvement of members in the enrollment of new members is not tenable since Section 2 (c) of th e Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning ) Act, 1978 does not insist that enrollment of members must be by members already enrolled.
