Without enrollment there is no Amway business

In spite the feigned innocence of the Independent Business Owners of Amway, there would be no business at all without enrollment. Some IBOs put forward an absurd argument that enrollment would result in losing their business. If they enroll more members each member would purchase compulsorily products worth Rs. 2000 to maintain minimum PV. That way, the sponsor would also get additional income on downline member's turnover.
An IBO would never earn Rs. 62, 150 unless he ensures there are 102 members his downline. That is what the sales and marketing plan of Amway India clearly states in its website. And among these 102 members, everyone would be on hot pursuit of enrolling more members to achieve that income. That is why it is called a vicious circle. They would be chasing the mirage to quench their thirst.
When it is a clear case of cheating under Section 420 of IPC and attracts the provisions of the Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978, (PCMC Act) these crooks pretend that it is a direct selling and wants a separate legislation to legalise the nefarious business activities.
Indians are fortunate that there is a powerful legislation like PCMC Act, 1978 to file criminal cases against this type of fraudulent companies. However, few people are coming forward to file complaints with the police.
Let us look at the reasons for their inaction. Firstly, they are introduced into these schemes by their own friends and relatives which deters them from complaining against their sponsors. However, they never trust them again in their life time. Secondly, the victims are discouraged due to the attitude of the police when they go to them to lodge complaints. This aspect is addressed as far as Andhra Pradesh is concerned. Thirdly, many people resign that it is their fate they lost money in a business transaction. They never realise that it is not a business at all but a fraud. Fourthly and very importantly, these people are not aware that it is a crime to join and make others join in such schemes. They never join such schemes if they know that it is a crime. Out of ignorance of the law and the propaganda that it is a good business opportunity by these unscrupulous crooks, they join such schemes. Moreover, these crooks keep on saying that it is his fault that he could not bring in more people, otherwise it would be a wonderful business opportunity. This is nothing but blame-the-victim policy. A friend of mine who has been an advocate for three decades confided that he was not aware of the law, otherwise he would have never joined in such schemes. How could anybody expect the common man to be aware of the law, when a senior advocate is not aware of it?
These are the basic reasons behind the flourishing of these crooks all over world.
My dear fellow humans all over world! Do not fall for the sweet talk of these crooks. You may end up losing your hard-earned money as well as the relations with your own people. Beware of these crooks!

You have had your misunderstandings of the Amway business model explained numerous times. You choose to ignore it.

I can therefore only surmise that you are consciously outright lying.

It is a complete lie to claim "an IBO would never earn Rs. 62, 150 unless he ensures there are 102 members his downline."

There is effectively an infinite number of ways to earn Rs.62,150/mth from Amway, ranging from enrolling nobody to enrolling everyone on the planet.

There comes a point where I can no longer try to excuse your posts of this nature through an assumption you are ignorant and simply don't understand the compensation plan.

It has become clear you have little interest in a factual understanding of the business model, and are committed to publishing lies about the Amway business model, truth be damned.

I have been following with interest the debacle and corruption surrounding India's hosting of the Commonwealth Games. I am beginning to suspect that you may be a part of that culture of corruption and are working for competitors of the Amway Corporation and other direct sales companies.

It's interesting to note that neither your nor Mr Brear have explained how you support yourselves financially while obsessively attacking the direct sales industry, yet simultaneously claim I must be compensated by Amway for my advocacy, despite the fact my posting and commenting rate is dwarfed by that of you and Brear.

Compensation plan! First let me rob your money and later I would compensate for your loss. LoL. The crooks claim that they would make millions by selling 'wampum'.
When the Website clearly states that the income of the sponsored would be Rs. 62, 150 after achieving 102 members as his downline. The website never gives any example other than sponsoring. And this fellow wants everyone believe that sponsoring is not necessary. Who is liar?
And it seems the membership of Amway India stagnated at 4.5 lakh of 2007 and no fresh figures are invented.

Shyam Sundar said...

Anyway who are the competitors of Amway. I would like to know the names of these companies to file criminal cases against them also. Kindly list out the names of the competitors. Let us not leave a single thief.

*crickets chirping*

IBOFB schooled once again.

IBOFB said...

According to international market research firm, Datamonitor, the major competitors for Amway (as of August 2010) are -
* Avon Products, Inc.
* Colgate-Palmolive Company
* Henkel KGaA
* Intimate Brands, Inc.
* Mary Kay Inc.
* Reckitt Benckiser PLC
* Beiersdorf AG
* Natural Health Trends Corp.
* Procter & Gamble Company

Interesting, Shyam, that you now seem to admit that you consider all businesses to be "crooks"

You really need to take some remedial reading lessons, Shyam. The website says no such thing.

It's really not that complicated. Ask a friend with a modicum of intelligence to go through it with you.

Shyam Sundar said...

Competitors means people who are in dubious direct selling like Amway and are trying to overtake it. How a crook could be compared with legitimate business houses.
One could understand the level of thinking of these shameless apologists.

Shyam Sundar said...

It is clear that the shameless apologists stoop to any level. The web site clearly states that after adding all the business done by the downline the monthly earnings of the first IBO would be Rs. 62,150. Not only this apologist could not understand simple English but simple table also.

Shyam Sundar said...

Of course, Avon India, Mary Kay are exceptions which are also dubious direct selling companies like Amway. I am anxiously looking forward to file criminal cases against them.

IBOFB said...

Oh, my mistake, I thought to answer your question using published information from a major recognized international market research firm.

How could I possibly have known that you weren't interested in expert third party data?

You and Brear, of course, of whom we know next to nothing, must be much better sources of such information ....
