a pyramid company taking our town by a storm
I've always been told pyramids are a scheme and don't work, we have one circulating in our town that people are seeing amazing results - I won't name the product but it is a health drink , a friend has already returned back to work after suffering for 2 years with fibromyalgia ,and bought into the company 3 weeks ago. the problem I have ,is the only way to get the product is by getting 3 other people (and almost $200.00 start kit )to sign up too. I have a problem with that. We live only on Social Security. ,and don't have a lot of money to spend extravagantly. I have seen what's its doing for these people ,and its amazing.One friend's $200 .00 starter kit has already made her 800.00 , in 3 weeks. So I'm torn on this decision. Would you buy into a company that's a pyramid ,knowing this product can help your health.?

I still don't believe it. Take your time and wait a bit.

NO! Please do not jump into this. Do a whole lot of background checking on this one and others. I have never heard of a pyramid scheme that was legit. Soon there may be many people doing this pyramid and then who would need to buy from you. If the product was that good it would be sold to all. And there would be no charge to get it. After all selling retail would bring in more money for the company selling it.

buy a couple of bottles from your friend to satisfy your curiosity. Let the rest of the sheeple follow the herd.

Consult with your Doctor before taking this product. I do not go along with this type of scheme. Watch your money.

I wouldn't do it.

Have the ingredients for the health drink been approved by the FDA? You don't have any idea what is in it and I am always cautious about so called "herbal or natural" remedies. Foxglove is natural too but it can kill you because it is what they make digitalis from.
As for getting other people to buy in so you get your money, how many people in town are there left to join? With all pyramid schemes, only the first few actually get money.

I agree with everyone else. Check out the ingredients and definitely check out this company. The BBB will/should have information on this. Your friend may be back to work for right now but for how long. What are the side effects down the road and can this drink be taken with any of your friend's other meds. If this has grapefruit in it and he/she's on meds for cholesterol, the drink will kill the effects of the cholesterol meds. There are many natural herbs that people are allergic to also. Do your research first. Usually, it's the first few at the bottom who make the money and that's where it stop's.

No I wouldn't. Almost got sucked into Amway once. The products may be decent, but the bottom line is that you need to keep recruiting more people to make any money. It's a racket, in my opinion.

Noni Juice? I personally tried it a decade ago, enjoyed the juice's taste, didn't particularly see *instant* health changes, and found the way/price/effort to buy it totally off-putting. Not for me.

There's a reason we don't hear much about these products after the initial push and hullabaloo.
