'Club Asteria business owners' are de facto slaves


Shyam 
The 'Club Asteria' featured on this Web link http://club-asteria.com/index?refid=27671  says that it has its HQ in Hong Kong, but there is video material on the same Site which shows a motherly, middle-aged Austrian woman, Andrea Lucas, claiming to be the philanthropic founder of 'Club Asteria.'  Andrea Lucas says she lives in Canada. She markets herself as an international 'self-betterment' Guru - a former 'director of the pivate sector branch of the World Bank.'  
Your free-thinking readers will observe that 'Club Asteria's' pretty propaganda follows an established pattern. Indeed,'Club Asteria' contains all the elements of an affinity / 'MLM business opportunity' fraud. According to Andrea Lucas, out of the kindness of her successful immigrant's heart, she wants to help Asian and African immigrants in Europe and N. America by offering them not just their very own businesses, but also their very own banking facilities so that they can obtain credit to set up their very own businesses and send their profits back to their families. 'Club Asteria' members are even offeredaccess to their very own currency - the 'Astero.'  
Andrea Lucas repeats all the classic, reality-inverting'MLM' key words and phrases over and over again.  On You-tube there are various mind-numbingly absurd 'Club Asteria' Videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76jHgtaqpbQ .These have commentaries by men with Canadian accents. They appear to have been produced by the same Hong Kong-based organization linked to Andrea Lucas, although they are not clearly identified. This material reveals that, exactly like 'Amway',  the structure of 'Club Asteria' has been copied from traditional, esoteric, fraternal, secret societies. In theory, promotion and increased rewards in 'Club Asteria,' are dependent on regular self-consumption of 'Club Asteria' products and services, combined with endless-chain recruitment of more contributing participants.
In plain English, exactly as in 'Amway', 'Club Asteria's' products and services are merely the camouflage for a closed-market swindle or illegal money circulation scheme. Thus, 'Club Asteria business owners' are de facto slave recruiters. Thes poor people have been peddled infinite shares of their own finite money by racketeers posing as philanthropists. 
For several months there have been various, well-intentioned observers posting articles on the Net., posing the classic naïve question is 'Asteria Club' a scam or is it really 'the Gateway to a Brighter Future?'  http://www.apsense.com/article/159866.html . Once you know that more than 50 years quantifiable evidence proves that 'MLM business opportunities' are all variations of the same-old fraud these idle-minded observers might as well ask: 
Is drinking poison dangerous or is it really the quickest way to get to Heaven?

Club Asteria is the most amazing concept ever developed in the history of the internet. The membership grew too fast because of the appealing concept that the administrators could not keep pace. This organization will never close down. The necessary changes are being made and new products are being developed. The new ipad cum iphone cum etc etc is already out. Right now the offer is only for members. Don't listen to people who wanted to make money without doing any work. The members who are putting in efforts are happy and successful. The concept of club asteria is " Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, Give him a fishing line and teach him to fish and you empower him to feed himself and others for life".

Club Asteria is the best concept ever developed on the internet. All great ideas take time to be accepted. Nobody should expect rewards without doing anything. If all the 350,000 members of club asteria work together selflessly it will become bigger than ebay and amazon put together. Please do not doubt this great movement. Just hold on for some time. All great organisations had their share of difficulties. If we do not spoil the name of club asteria it will prosper sooner and all of us will benefit. All businesses go through difficult times. Club Asteria grew to fast. It will bounce back. Please don’t tarnish the image of your own organization. Don’t defeat yourself. The asterios we have are very valuable and will give us benefit and rewards in due course. In the meantime keep spreading the positive news about the organization like its philantropic activities, micro loans, education etc etc. Together we will succeed and prosper and help others and make this world a better place. There are hundreds of touching stories sent by members who need help and financial security. Lets work together for them and God will give us the returns for our selfless work. Lets not create such a bad name to this organization that it will struggle to grow. Too many people’s hopes and dreams are at stake. For their sake lets be positive and work together for our future. I am also a member like you. If we don’t give up now we will win – all of us. I have passed through similar situations in my business in the past. This things eventually pass away. Winners never give up and complain. They continue to work during difficult times. Check the touching stories of members and how much the success of club asteria means to them.
