My mums been married to my stepdad who has been in the Amway business for over 25 years.
外围体育投注He religiously attends every meeting and does his best to attend other major events in the country. He has got my mum into it too and she does this alongisde him. My mum initially had no idea about this 'business' opportunity but now seems to like it.
So far, I've attended a few big events with them where Amway 'diamonds' talk about creating wealth, frown upon the employee mindset and brag about their house and free time. I find this quite disturbing and brainwashing, especially considering there is a side company called BWW that distribute success and feel good books to keep people motivated in the business.
外围体育投注Stepdad's house is fairly ordinary, and I know for a fact he has a large salary anyway from the company he works with. If he has a stable job with a high salary, why be preaching about being rich?
I'm a 22 yr old male, thinking of talking to them about this seriously. I've mentioned it before a few times and stepdad always brings up "Know your facts before opinions" and does whatever he can to defend Amway.
外围体育投注How can I, as a 22 yr old, speak to parents about this? I would like to mention how they actually aren't creating much wealth (though I hear from their conversations they are nearly 'diamonds'). Is it worth it if he's been doing it for so long, to only be on the brink of diamond NOW?! I feel they are effectively using people, to ultimately enrich the real business here, which is Amway selling over priced products by preying on people's ambition for financial freedom.
外围体育投注Want to put Amway out of business? It won't happen by posting cute stories here. Read the below in its entirety and then do it.
外围体育投注Do your part and copy/paste this message, including this part, all over social media (unless owned/operated by current Amway IBOs or the Amway scam company), and encourage them to do the same, and so on, à la network marketing/MLM. Also, submit a complaint to the FTC at If you don't, then you're part of the problem. Amway has 2 major problems, and most MLMs have at least one of these issues:
外围体育投注The products are overpriced, which makes them almost impossible to sell to customers and results in Amway being an illegal pyramid: , and also according to the FTC and SEC websites and previous court decisions and settlements; and
The Tool Scam is hidden profit for the top level distributors only, and the vast majority of distributors operate at a net loss as a result: This is RICO fraud.
外围体育投注For recent examples, google “FTC” along with the following companies, one at a time: FHTM, BurnLounge, Zeek, TelexFree, Vemma, Advocare, Neora, Javita, Waiora, Business For Health, and Herbalife. Make a complaint on the FTC website:
外围体育投注Although there is no federal law defining pyramid schemes, the FTC has a long and successful track record of using its Section 5 law prohibiting “unfair and deceptive” business practices to go after MLM scams: which states, in part, “Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate multilevel marketing plan. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s probably not. It could be a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money.”
Read about these and much more at these websites: and , and , and email email@example.com外围体育投注 to help shut down Amway and other MLM scams.
Watch this video about Amway and other MLM scams, then forward it to everyone you know, except for current Amway IBOs, and encourage them to do the same. When enough people know, these scams will collapse:

外围体育投注I'm a reporter working on a story about how MLMs recruit college students and other vulnerable individuals. Particularly interested in how these companies are using the pandemic to bolster their recruiting strategies. Would love to speak with any current or former Amway employees. I won't use your name or any of the information you provide without your consent. Please message me if you're willing to talk.
I was curious to see how those who are active have been doing during the last three or four months since lockdowns and limitations have been put in place? I know my old team is still holding their weekly recruiting meetings (business briefings) via Zoom and IBOs need to Venmo $5 to their Upline Platinum. I also know that two major conferences were held online only and those were still priced at $93 (one of the cheapest prices amongst all AMOs). I also know that another AMO was charging $139 for an online version of one of their quarterly conferences.
We all know that the real money is in membership fees (team apps) and events. How have your Uplines been able to bring in money to the organizations? How are they selling all of this to the business owners?
外围体育投注I'm intrigued since the current situation goes against the Amway business model. And surely, there are a lot of high pins who aren't bringing in nearly as much as they used to.
外围体育投注I recently meet a wonderful women, who is just in the beginning of getting involved with amway. I want to talk to her about and express some of my concerns regarding there business practices. What are some things I should know going in and could i get some stories so i can get a better idea about what i am talking about.
thank you all so much and hope you all have a wonderful day
I still don’t know what it is?? He conned me into going to one of their recruit meetings (idk if that’s what it really was. that’s what I called it lol) I came out with more questions than I had went in with. The guy speaking really just talked about how having a college degree was worthless (but he had a college education from a expensive school in my state).
It seems like Amway’s uses the people they rope in to push their products so they have no middle man. Am I correct? I don’t understand how people make money?? My brother has spent so much on their products, he literally has a whole drawer of vitamins that he doesn’t need, tubs of protein powder, shakes, drinks, toothpaste.... everything. I KNOW he is probably in debt from them.
外围体育投注My questions: Apparently he is a platinum in the business, what does that entail and what does one have to do in order to become a platinum? What is LTD? He has a few of their tshirts What’s Ditto? He recently “won” a cruise from them (that he still had to pay for???) what is required of you in order to win the cruise? Why are the conferences so important? And why do you have to pay if you’re part of the business? (Tickets are $100) What are the weekly meetings about?
外围体育投注Seems like amway is preying one these poor kids and selling thee dreams that are impossible to obtain unless they invest enough money and I don’t like it. My brother has been doing this for years and I haven’t seen any profit besides those checks he gets for spending his own money on their products?
