Anyone know anything about Quixtar/Amway?
Advertisements [?]
I have a friend of mine who is 23 ( I am 24) and he is getting involved with a "business team" who does e-commerce marketing for a website called Quixtar. Basically he gave my number to his "upline" who gave me a call (several times actually) and I met with the guy who invited me to a meeting where they spelled out the plan on how to make 50k a year with only working 10-15 hrs. a week. To me the plan the guy drew looked a lot like a pyramid scheme with those under you giving you a percentage of the business they buy and they brin in. At it's most innocent it's multi-level marketing, at its worst I found some articles on the internet saying it's a rip-off. I'm trying to convince my buddy that this is a scam but he's already getting cd's and books and going to a national conference (which he spent $150 to go to) as well as pay $5 a week to go to "seminars" where they "train" you. I just wonder if anyone has had a run in with this organization and what you can tell me about their claims of money and work time?
