Here is the case of a housewife who was in her over-enthusiasm to enroll more members into the Amway India list of IBOs lost her life.
She was a happy housewife in Vijayawada, the coastal town of Andhra Pradesh with her husband a professor in an engineering college. She lives in a two-bed room apartment at Gayatrinagar in the city. One of her close relatives introduced her to the 'good business opportunity' and she wanted to become rich over night.
She started talking to every Tom and Dick and Harry about the 'good business opportunity' and asking them to become members of Amway India to lead a luxury life and happy retired life in a few years.
During one of her visits to the shopping mall, she came across an auto rickshaw driver and told him about the 'good business opportunity'. She even told him a blatant lie that her monthly earnings as commission from Amway India was more than Rs. 78,000 which was a sizable amount in Indian standards.
The auto rickshaw driver thought otherwise. He thought that the housewife has wads of currency at her home. On the pretext of joining Amway business, he visited her house and slit her throat. However, he could found only a couple of gold bangles on her person. Later he confessed to the police that he believed that there was a lot of of currency at her home.
