Would love your thoughts on this.
Multilevel Marketing (Amway, Network21, Prime America, etc) seems inherently sleazy to me. The only way the "seller" makes money is if I give him money... there's no actual value being created or goods/services changing hands.
So when somebody tries to sign me up for the latest MLM scheme, what should my internal response be? I've usually gone with a silent "yeah right" but politely refused. More recently I've been approached by a couple that really seemed to be legit job leads, and it wasn't until I did some digging that I realized they were an MLM. I'm tempted to go with a... shall we say... more emphatic rejection.
So, is there any case where an MLM pitch isn't a scam? Is there any reason not to treat an MLMer like any other scammer?
