Lies in the form of anecdotal evidence are not accepted on Corporate Frauds Watch

Now that the unmasked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. Steadson, has been banned, I see that some more, well-trained monkeys have appeared on Corporate Frauds Watch to dance to the thought-stopping 'MLM business opportunity' tune. One of these distracting little creatures, 'Saji,' has even repeated Mr. Steadson's latest intricate dance-rountine; claiming that 'MLM is legal and proven' but some dreadful criminals have borrowed it to commit fraud.
'Saji'  says:
'MLM just one of the five main globally accepted, legal and proven methods to distribute products. Why do scams or frauds use MLM or Network Marketing method? Because it is so powerful. Whatever it is that someone wants to use MLM industry to distribute it does so in a very rapid way. Global leading brands are also now using this method of distribution to reach more customers.
'Saji' then invites your free-thinking readers to stop thinking critically and plunge head-first into the rancid swamp of puerile, 'MLM,' logic:
'So if a Scam wants to deploy the scam and uses MLM then don't attack the MLM industry. If somebody uses a rock to kill somebody don't blame the rock. The rock did not kill somebody. The person did. Branding all MLM companies as fraud is like calling every advocate, every doctor, every judge, every minister a fraud...without giving them a fair hearing. When you want to take your ailing dear one to a doctor for treatment, would you not check on the doctor - if he is qualified, if he has good reviews and people in general have a good opinion about him or better still if he has treated any of your friends or relatives with good results, so you can approach the doctor in good faith? Why should it be any different when you enter into a business opportunity? Scrutinize and inspect every aspect of the opportunity.' 
Observe, how 'Saji', without offering the slightest quantifiable evidence to support his fairytale, presupposes that 'MLM' is an authentic economic medicine which, if bought from the right supplier and taken in the correct dose, can cure anyone of poverty'Saji'  then pretends that he personally knows  ' 36 distributors from his own (MLM) company who have been consistently earning 6 figure income for the past 7 - 10 years.' However, he doesn't care to mention who these persons are, what currency their alleged '6 figure incomes' were paid in or whether these alleged 'incomes' represented a net-profit.
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, each time a so-called 'MLM business opportunity' has been independently investigated, it has been discovered that, despite what its instigators have steadfastly pretended, none of its participants have been earning their livings by regularly retailing goods, and/or services, to the public for a profit.
I challenge this amusing fellow, 'Saji,' to stop his intricate dance routine and, instead, produce the audited accounts (particularly the income-tax receipts) of a significant group of so-called 'MLM business owners' which would prove that at least one so-called 'MLM business opportunity' is economically viable and has been operated lawfully with a significant percentage of its participants having made their livings by regularly retailing significant quantities of 'MLM' wampum to the public for a profit.
Budding 'MLM' apologists should take note, lies in the form of anecdotal evidence are not accepted on Corporate Frauds Watch.
