Ponzi’s And Pyramids

Do not kill the messenger…

We at Business For Home get daily the question “Is company XYZ legit or a Ponzi, Pyramid or Scam?”

Hard to answer as it takes in-depth knowledge of a compensation plan, the owners, product/service and the country a company is registered, and there are over 10,000 Direct Selling companies worldwide.

Around 750 of the largest are in our company database.

What is not compliant in the USA, can be no problem in other countries, whats legit in the USA can be not legit in other countries, such as vitamins ingredients and novel foods.

We report about the top earners and companies in the billion dollar MLM Health and Wealth products, services, crypto currencies, mining, and Forex trading industry without too much judging.

Bill Ackman had to opinion Herbalife is a Pyramid, and he failed to prove it. The Federal Trade Commission in the USA had the opinion Vemma is a pyramid, and the FTC settled the case.

Our opinion is not important, YOU have to do your own research.  Our team publish facts, figures and network marketing news from both legit companies as possible ponzi’s or pyramids.

The USA is not longer the Direct Selling Center of the universe, Asia is.

Intentionally or unintentionally the border can be crossed and even compensation plan experts as Top Leaders can be sometimes wrong. We at Business For Home are hardcore Direct Selling Industry activists, not Ponzi / Pyramid / Scam experts.

“We do a short review on compliance before entering a company in our database, however as said, we are not compensation plan experts. Per year we deny over 500 companies to enter our database because of many red flags.”

At times, we do call out notorious schemes as the scam lords in it, see the MLM blacklist.

If we report about a company or publish an article or interview with Top earner XYZ, who makes $50,000+ per month, it is NOT an endorsement, we just validate those numbers.

In the past we have reported about the top earners in Zeek Rewards, Banner BrokersTelexFree, as OneCoin, proven Ponzi systems, Pyramids or Scams.

“The criticism from a few people, we give some non-compliant companies a platform, we have a different opinion for this topic:

If we do not report, you have no clue how large and devastating they are for the legit Direct Selling Industry and who is involved.”

If we could interview Bernie Madoff or Charles Ponzi, we would do so 🙂 however it does NOT mean YOU have to sign up….

Direct Selling is the marketing and selling of products directly to consumers away from a fixed retail location, and a $250 – $350 billion worldwide market with more than 150 million people involved, and we love that. 🙂
