Mud Hits the Fan for WMI

Wealth Masters International – the Writing is on the Wall

A string of negative events for Wealth Masters International is having a marked effect on WMI.  Apparently its sales are plummenting.

Key WMI reps such as Sue and Jerry Smart are scrambling to lock in alternative income streams, simply because their own sales have been dropping like a stone.

Here is a summary of the main problems that WMI has been experiencing recently:

1. Sales Executive Walks Out. Deanna Latson Quit WMI.  Apparently she wasn’t happy with what was going on behind the scenes (company not paying its bills etc).

2. Michael Hamburger Quits. Ex Liberty League and Lifepath Unlimited rep Michael Hamburger has jumped ship once again in favour of Brent ‘Liberty League’ Payne’s Avant.

3. SEC Launches Investigation. The SEC in the US launched an investigation into Wealth Masters for possible ‘securities violations‘ to do with WMI’s planned stock market float, which is now surely a a non-starter.

4.  New Zealand Launches Investigation. New Zealand’s Commerce Commission has launched an investigation into WMI , no doubt prompted by the Norway’s decision earlier this year to declare Wealth Masters an illegal pyramid.

The above represents negative events that have happened in just the last month.  Ouch!

Businesses such as WMI do not survive when confidence is undermined.  If just one of these events occurred it would place Wealth Masters at great risk.  But the company has been hit with four bad events in one month – not a good look!  Catastrophic in fact.

The Future for WMI?

Does Wealth Masters International have a future?  Nope.  WMI is toast.

  1. I walked away from WMI and CCP (their former marketing system) a year ago, as the writing was on the wall back then – both companies and compensation plans were only ever designed for rapid growth, (big money for a few) and even faster decline in my opinion. I’m not sure how many thousands of people lost their life-savings investing into these companies but the sooner they leave the industry the better in my book.

  2. Hi Ted,
    I wonder if this case will prove to be the thin end of the wedge for many of the companies designed to offer a ‘product’ which is actually a resource or service rather than a physical product which the customer, (remember them? they’re the one’s that pay the bills) gets to see, touch and use to the benefit of their everyday lives?
    Neils comments about compensation plans designed only for short term fast growth is spot on. You have to wonder if pay plans based purely on continued new growth are not intended to last and are designed simply to attract the ‘smash and grab’ opportunists.

  3. Those were the people bashing MLM in a so called coffee house letter claiming there is no future for MLM and quick cash is the solution. There is no long term future for top tier companies like this. Already many gone burst.
