    Hi All :)

    I'm Myke and tried some of these MLMs a while back. Got scammed out of several thousands. Was lead to believe that I could make a sustainable income (by a very good friend, or so I thought!). Within only 3 months I figured out how they work. I did become a "cultist" in those 3 months, boy, how they work your brain when you're a newbie at this! Wish I'd found your website back then. Now I'm here, and hopefully I can reach several family members and friends who have become cult members and help them get away from that mentality and think with a clear brain!

    Thanks!

    Good luck! If you browse through the threads here ,you will find many stories like your. It is an uphill battle as I'm sure you are aware. First and foremost, a scammed person has a really hard time admitting they were scammed. WELCOME!
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    Thanks for the welcome! :)

    Nah, I'd rather let the truth out and admit the fact that: I WAS SCAMMED! - and hopefully help others to think twice before they fall for the tall tale! Old story, just like most out there. Business went belly-up and was at the stage where I was looking for a new start-up. Believed the hype that I could pay my bills within a short period of time, IF I invested "a small amount of money" in XXX MLM program. I went for it. Within 3 months, I found the ins/outs of "how" it all worked and that was it for me. Thank goodness I got out in time, but did lose quite a bit in the process.

    Welcome Myke.

    I'm not sure how much reading you've done on MLM. If interested and you haven't found it already, this RS thread Links, has some good websites listed.

    Hi Char and thanks for the welcome!

    I know a little, I'm not full-blown expert. I know enough to keep away from them. I'm off to read your LINK! Thanks again :)
