    Robert FitzPatrick: "Deceptive Income Disclosures Power MLM Recruiting And Expansion"

    Summary:


    * The income proposition for Herbalife and other multi-level marketing companies is the engine that drives the business. It is presented as real by major authorities, for pay, and without evidence.

    * In reality, Herbalife and other MLMs offer zero opportunity. Loss rates among new recruits are, effectively, 100%. The MLM income promise is part of a monumental deception.

    * HLF engages in deception in the promotion of its income proposition on such a scale, and in so many ways, the FTC has abundant regulatory means to cripple its recruiting.

    * The primary tool of deception used by Herbalife, Nu Skin and other MLMs is the "income disclosure statement."

    * Eight measures are used in MLM disclosures to present a false picture of "income opportunity" and to conceal the reality of zero chance for new recruits to make a profit.

    Great article by Mr. Fitz.

    What's funny is watching the MLM shills claim that Herbalife has actual retail customers and in the same breath, claiming that 73% of Herbalife distributors are actually customers who registered for a product discount. Can't have it both ways can you?
