    Other

    Literally. how's about we have an `other' category since these dang things just seem to keep popping up worse than a game of whack a mole? I have a close relative who is a serial MLM'er. I get questions all the time from other people like, `what about ______________? and really it is a matter of fill in the blank.
    I truly am sick of it and want to fight back with knowledge, information and facts.
    So my others would be the following
    WFG - World Financial Group
    BeautiControl
    Neurium

    and so on. These are flying just under the radar, yet relationships, families and pocketbooks are being destroyed.
    I am heartsick over it.

    We do have a category called "Other" on the forum. Actually it is best to have a category for each program under the appropriate header. It is easier for people to find it and get educated. Since these programs all seem to be MLM programs, a thread should be started for each one under this header. Hope this helped.

    For what its worth you might consider starting a single thread in the MLM section and tell your story. Add in what you find about each of these MLMs, links, earning statements, what your friends/family are experiencing. There is plenty of interesting stuff there that even if you can't "reach them" someone will certainly appreciate your effort.

    This was an excellent personal journey that many can relate to. Tin Promises - How MLM Can Tear Lives Apart - Roger Willco


    Since things like this can affect your relationship with friends/family it may be prudent to change a few details of the story to protect the innocent or guilty as it were. It may be hard to believe, not everyone appreciates meddlin kinfolk.

    No problem and welcome to RS. If you have any questions, you can PM me (or any Admin) and we/I'll gladly assist you in navigating the forum. It can be intimidating for first time visitors to navigate and figure out how things are done.

    Re: Other

    /Id suggest "other" be changed to "Other MLM's" and made a sticky. I'd also suggest they be list4ed A-Z somewhere and links be given in a single message to threads on MLM e.g. Bank On Traffic and other MLMs not in this forum e.g. Banners Broker also be shown in links.
