I always wondered about Amway - 35 years ago a friend of mine sold it and tried like crazy to get me to sell it. I really liked several of the products and would buy them from her but I cannot sell a bleeding man a bandage. And it seemed crazy to me that if everyone becomes a salesman, who will be left to buy the product? So as the years went buy, she quit selling it and I was never able to get the products. The about 15 years ago I met another person and he was more interested in making me a salesperson than selling me the product. I could not convince him it was better to put me in touch with someone that wanted to sell the product, than ask me the sell it. I have not had any Amway products in my home for over 15 years.

I think you should name the product! Someone here may have had some experience with it or know more about it. I think it's a good suggestion for you to buy some of the product from a friend and try it or check it out to see what's in it? Maybe ephedrine?

Sounds like a scam. If it was a good product, they would sell it. Since all the hype is about recruiting more people, count on it running it's course in 6 months, running out of new people to recruit, and they will be gone.

If these so called "health" drinks are really so wonderful and can cure so many things, the drug companies would be all over them. The big drug companies would be buying these pyramid companies. Remember what they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true.

I sold Shaklee products for years and loved them! Amway is still available in my area. Look in your phone book, quiltingcandy or google Amway to see who in your area is selling the products.

I attended a scam program once, no one could tell me what the product did only how to sell it! All the men fell for it, I left early.

Once years ago I had a slick salesman stop by the motel to sell me a product to remove water spots and scale from the stalls fast and easy. Well I asked him to demo the product and we would talk. 1 1/2 hours later he came back from the room I put him in and gave up. It was not quick or easy and he was tired and sweaty.

I would save your money - these things that "seem to good to be true" usually are - and I would question whether your friend really made $800.00 that quick - if it was that easy we all would do it. I think you will see soon that this isn't working and your friend will be out his money.

Do not get involved with this pyramid scheme. If you think you need a wonder tonic, consult a doctor or a nutritionist before spending any money. You worked too hard all your life to be giving your money to some snake oil salesmen. Remember what Barnimun Bailey used to say "There's a sucker born every minute".

Run away from his as fast as you can, laughing at all those who got sucked in!
