mlm scamJust how often does a MLM scam take place in the industry? Do you need to be concerned?

Honestly I see the word scam, all I see it as all hype. It’s just another marketing tactic to get you freaked out and scared to take action.

The network marketing industry has been around for years, and like any industry it has had it’s ups and downs.

I would say that 99% of the network marketing companies out there are built with good intentions. They have a good product, they want it shared, and they know that the referral business is the best business to be in. So why not pay people to refer your products to others.

In essence we become mini commercials and advertising boards for a company. They save on advertising so that they can pay you to be their spokes person for them.

Company wins and You win.

Biggest Scams on The Internet

Just to keep you aware and up to date, I scoured the web this morning and found some scams that I think you should know about.

As you can see, if people go out and search they can always find the scam.

It is because people only see that they want to see. You looking for trouble and you will find it.

Don’t stress yourself trying to convince people your that you are not part of a mlm scam. It is a waste of your time and theirs.

You should be looking for people that know that the mlm industry is not a scam, but a business that they are going to have to work to build.

Protect Yourself From The MLM Scam

Now every now and then there is a company that pops us, that sounds too good to be true. It probably is. I would say I have see about 2 scammy companies in the 7 years I have been in the network marketing industry. So less than 1% are bad seeds in the MLM industry. That leaves you with 99% of amazing mlm companies to choose from.

Three things that you can do to protect yourself from a mlm scam.

  1. Do your research. Find out how long they have been in business. Who are the founders and what is their story?
  2. Research the team that you want to join. Find a leader inside that company and look to join them.
  3. Be honest with yourself in goals and expectation. The MLM industry is not a get rich quick scheme. Commit to a year and work the business.

      I have owned and operated traditional businesses for over 35 years. I have made great money and worked insane hours, but nothing prepared me for a client (a JV involving two public companies and an industry organisation) pulling the pin on a project and refusing to honour a $530,000 debt. If you want to talk scams, this is one. Large public companies hiding behind $2,500 per day lawyers who simply stall until you have nothing left to fight them with and then their CEO’s writing that “This is not personal, it’s just business” That folks is a scam. I finally woke up and was introduced to the Network Marketing model. I was shown a company and set about doing due diligence consisting of a 20 point questionnaire. I needed at least 75% ticks to proceed. I found a company that ticked ALL the boxes, joined up and have never looked back. One of my only regrets is that I was so involved in ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses that I now realise that I was wearing blinkers and simply didn’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t accept that there was a much better way of doing business. Since I opened my eyes and my mind I have found a whole new world of commerce where real people market real products and make real money.

        Once you get into network marketing and treat it like a business… amazing things happen. Welcome to the family! If you have any questions feel free to ask! Appreciate your comment. Very insightful.

      Made a good point about “scams” and I get so sick of hearing people who talk about “everything is a scam” online blah blah. I am really shocked though I’ve been scammed for years buying Reese Cups and never seen it, that’s a good scam. I guess since they started selling them online is how they became the scam? Thanks for sharing this, it gets the point across well!

        Jaye the Reese Peanut Butter cup shocked me also! If people are bent on finding something wrong… they will find it. Move on and don’t waste your time trying to convince them otherwise.
