So guys, my sister have been involved in this company called Amway. From everything she's been telling me, it sounds a lot like a pyramid scheme. Her defense is that, it's "a diamond" and is "network marketing." She and her husband apparently are going to retire in 3 years as promised by the company because there's nothing enjoyable about life if all you do is work, even if it's a job you like.

Does anybody have any experience with this company or know anything about it?

Use Google. I know the answer but I'm not going to tell you because I think you're being lazy. Other than that I don't know enough about the company but know that I wouldn't even think about being filliated with it in any way.

I did google. I wanted to know if anybody had any personal experience.


Nah, sorry but they've had a lot of problems in the past with the Office of Fair Trading etc. I wouldn't be surprised if, somewhere along the line, they end up scamming a lot of people through director embezzlement etc...

It is a SCAM. Tell your sister to GTFO.

I've been recruited by them before as well. Trust me, they are a seedy business model.

Tell your sister to come see me, I've got a job for her. Doesn't pay that great but I'm sure she'll enjoy it.

I'm working pretty hard at getting my new job off the ground at the moment, and I'm fucking loving it.

How long have you been with them before you stopped?

Yes I have had people try to recruit me. No thank you.
Actually I destroyed the career of a Warrant Officer that attempted to use his rank to impress people into his little ring of horrors.

I wasn't with them for any amount of time. I went to their recruitment seminar and that was it. Right off the bat I knew something was off...the entire room was filled with Indians who seemed to know each other. Then I looked into it further and basically they're all appearance but underneath it's all malicious. You can Google for yourself how reputable they are.

Rule 1 about pyramid schemes: If people say right off the bat that it isn't a pyramid scheme, it's a pyramid scheme.

From something I read on cracked or somewhere else, I vaguely remember that company being a scam.

Once she's in power she can hand out jobs herself.

I've been trying to get her to actually google the company. All she's been telling me is that you can't trust everything you see on google.

OK, if she's going to be a dumbass, then just warn your parents. Tell them not to give any startup money or anything to her. If she wants to be in financial ruins, that's her problem.

Apparently it's not a pyramid scheme, it's a multi-level marketing company.

Oh, my parents wouldn't have the cash anyway. My dad said he tried when he was younger but didn't have the time.

You mean Scamway?

Yeah, I feel bad about that. It's shady, not as shady as Cutco, but still shady.

They tried to recruit me once. There is no fucking way that I'm going to pay a company a "start-up fee" so that I can start working for them, and anyone who would is just a gullible idiot.

But it isn't necessarily a straight-up scam. Some people do manage to make a reasonable amount of money, but they are few and far between. The majority of the people pay them, burn through their remaining savings driving everywhere selling their shitty knives, (and they are shitty knives, my parents bought some from my cousin's girlfriend) then quit with less money than they started with. (This is Cutco, BTW, I don't know jack shit about Amway)

OT: I would tell your sister to stop believing what the company tells her, and find her own info on it. No company is going to tell a prospective employee how many other prospective employees its fucked, or their employee turnover rates (which I expect are absolutely insane)
