Mary Kay is just another copycat of Amway

Beware Indians! The infamous copycat of Amway India and the member of Indian Direct Selling (Swindling! due apologies to David Brear) Association, Mary Kay is planning massive expansion to cheat Indian public in over 200 cities across the country. I have already posted about its modus operandi in cheating the public by enrollment.
Mary Kay India told an unsuspecting journalist of Indian Express that Mary Kay is planning to recruit one hundred thousand Independent Beauty Consultants all over country. If Amway has IBOs, Mary Kay has IBCs with a letter difference.
The US-based company sells skin care, makeup, and body care and fragrance products. If anybody wants to become `an independent beauty consultant,’ one has to be sponsored by a member i.e. ENROLLMENT. The company also offers a ‘dream business opportunity’ with rewards like diamond bracelet and foreign trips and even luxury cars on achieving sales targets i.e. enrollment targets. It has three offices in India. However it is limited so far to only Metros in the country. Mainly it targets high society women in the higher income group.
Now the cosmetic company is mostly targeting working women who have more dispensable income and are ready to experiment in order to look groomed and younger. One could understand how this company is scheming to bring women in their dragnet. All its products are high-priced and the modus operandi is same that of Amway India.
It is high time, Indians in general and women in particular keep a watch on the dubious activities of such companies and keep them off. If anybody approaches you to become a member and enroll more members, and it is a good business opportunity to earn easy and quick money, just inform the police as it is a crime under the provisions of Prize Chits And Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.
