Behind MLM – A Fine Club Of MLM And Network Marketing Haters

Behind MLM - A Fine Club Of MLM And Network Marketing Haters

Behind MLM is founded by a free-lance German (Ebersdorf)  reporter living in Taiwan – Taipei, Klaus Bardenhagen. Klaus Bardenhagen publishes under the fake name “OZ”.

His business model to make a profit, is to get as many visitors as possible with biased marketing to create fear, uncertainty and doubt, and clicks on the Google banners on his website, so he get paid. Capitalising on people’s fear.

Given his website traffic he will make est. $4,000 – $8,000 per month with the banners.

Creating, fear, uncertainty and doubt (often shortened to FUD) is a disinformation strategy used in sales, marketing, public relations, politics, cults, and propaganda. FUD is generally a strategy to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information and a manifestation of the appeal to fear.

Behind MLM is “reviewing” compensation plans and their biased conclusion is 9 out of 10 times:

  • Its a Ponzi
  • It’s a Pyramid Scheme
  • It’s a recruiting scam
  • They are scammers
  • Security fraud

And the website attracts with his biased reviews a lot of people, approx. 10,000+ visitors per day. ranking Behind MLM

Every compensation plan review is based on USA law only. They do not care if a company is outside the USA where legislation is often different.

Although Klaus Bardenhagen certainly can analyse a compensation plan, and sometimes he is right, too many times the conclusion is wrong.

His contributors do not hesitate to spread fake news, and Klaus does not prevent that.

How they have insulted Herbalife and Vemma executives when those companies were facing a SEC investigation was disgusting. Both companies settled and won their cases, according to Behind MLM they lost and “Need to be in jail”.

A couple of Klaus Bardenhagen’s biased, unfair, negative opinions:

  • World Ventures – a recruiting scam.
  • Lyoness – a pyramid scheme.
  • Herbalife – a pyramid scheme.
  • Vemma – a pyramid scheme.
  • Nu Skin – a pyramid scheme.

  • ARIIX –  many red flags with the opportunity.
  • Pruvit – a chain-recruitment scheme.

“A hater is someone who discredits, devalues or downplays your accomplishments. Your failures make a hater happier than their own success. Haters need to see you go down to lift themselves up. 


If you have haters, the solution is simple: ignore them and keep doing what you do. If a hater can directly influence your plans, then your plans aren’t ambitious enough.

  1. The information on their website are 99% based on limited, incomplete, false and inaccurate claims and information. They are no better than misleading magazines that are published regularly with false claims and info in them.

  2. Worldventures is a SCAM!! There’s not enough evidence and arguments to get through your dense heads! it’s just pointless at this point. Just like the flat earth idiots! There are good legal MLM companies but learn the difference and stop calling people haters when they beat you with facts and arguments.

  3. I won’t go so far as to say all MLMs are sketchy, but the fact that most MLMs are not worried about getting customers, because the distributors are the customers! Most require distributors to purchase x amount of products each and every month to qualify for commissions. Most do not make money as getting customers that are going to put out hard earned money on over priced products every month is difficult to do. MLM as far as I am concerned skirts the legal issues because they have a physical product. I have yet to find an MLM opportunity that did not require you the distributor to purchase x amount of product each and every month, nor have I found one that is worth the price they put on their products.
