Question. Has anyone here been approached by a friend or relative with this new MLM scam scheme? I was just approached by a dear friend. Who seems to have fallen in love with this company. Her proof? An article on Forbes. And an advertisement that appears on a Formula-1 car. Other than that, I am just hearing... How can you think of it as a scam? And blah blah. I wished her best of luck with her endeavor. Makes me sad that even educated people from sane families fall for these traps. BTW. She has not told her parents about her investment in this company. Told her to tell them as well.

Was taken to a "seminar-lunch" by a friend 4 years ago. 3 and half hours :(

Middle of the seminar where these people were calling random members on stage who wore suits, took the mike and thanked their parents all the while , me , a commerce student was wondering wtf was the business model. googled it and that was my first introduction to MLMs.

Later I advised my friend to not join and after 2 months, he also came out. Lost 18k. thanked me for showing him the light.

Now, just few days back, my school friend asked me for "business opertunity" I found out its MLM and cost to join is 4 lakhs. many of my friends already joined. These are educated friends btw, two of them even having a fucking MBA. Posted a thread on reddit and my friend found out lol. stopped talking to me :(
