Default Re: MLM fraud: Amezcua's BioDisc ?

Earlier it was "Japan life" selling mattresses, & now comes this. An acquaintance of mine was trying to convince me for bio disk some time back. But failed. Later he realized that I'm a car enthusiast, so he says - Place it on the fuel tank & the mileage will increase. Palce it on the engine & see a performance gain. . A girl, a good friend of his, claimed that because of the biodisk treatment even her the cigarettes taste bland & a pack has gone waste... lol.

In India, we have Hindustan Uniliver and Reliance which move their products thru this channel. Mr Warren Buffet owns 5 Direct Sales co's and calls it the "BEST investment he ever made". (Google it out)

So actually nothing wrong with the industry. Reason why people don't like/fail in MLM is because they QUIT. We could debate for years on that one :P

True, MLM is a great concept. The only drawback is that most of those MLM companies have products that we do not need. Let MLM companies start selling regular grocery items at less than the market prices, and a lot of people will join. But when MLM companies sell cosmetics, magnetic beds and other such stuff at exhorbitant prices, what do you expect? Only those who are cuaght off-guard will join and then regret.

And no comments about the Bio-disc. There are FMCG companies selling beauty lotions that are advertised to have the power to turn dark skinned persons into fair skinned persons in about a fortnight. Do you believe them?

If that disc does miracle why is it not available in leading medical stores.
Viagra is freely available isn't it.

Heard of a bracelet which has the same properties didnt know a disc can do so too.

Well remember a time when i used to be wary of long lost friends calling up saying they have a business proposition and the funny part is "They are never willing to say the name of the company upfront"

The style of operation is the same and usual target audience is IT crowd and then people who usually stay at home, ie housewives.

Place of meeting is a coffee shop where a very senior guy, who wears expensive stuff and also drives a car though he just starts woking comes with a file and then asks you queries like where will you be 10 yrs from now and stuff.

Favorite part was where the statement is "I wanna retire by 35 and by then have a independent house in Baner and a Pajero

For the people who advocate this, please get a hobby, you will have a more peaceful life and could even be more succesful in it.

Peace out
