MLM at a job fair

Dear organiser,

I have noticed that (insert MLM here) will be appearing at your jobs fair on……….. at…………..  The inclusion of this organisation concerns me somewhat, for the following reasons.

  1. The company does not offer jobs, they offer the opportunity for people to act as independent contractors, earning commission on sales and the sales of the people they recruit.
  2. The company offers no employment benefits at all.
  3. People who sign up under this company are led to believe they will own their own business and be in control of their activities. In reality they are tied to a very restrictive set of terms and conditions. Please look them up under the company’s website.
  4. Research by the FTC in America has shown that 99% of people in these schemes lose money. Figures published by these types of company show that the average earnings before expenses is dismally low. Search for an ‘Income Disclosure Statement’ for the company to see what their figures are.
  5. People in these schemes buy products, marketing materials, training materials, samples, business cards, leaflets, website fees, etc etc. They take all the risks for the company and are given very little in return.
  6. There is no proper leadership or hierarchical structure. Anyone can recruit anyone and become an ‘upline’ who becomes like their manager, with no experience, management training or anything resembling someone with authority. These uplines tell their recruits what to do, often giving really bad advice, leaving the recruit to take all responsibility if they make mistakes.
  7. These types of companies often target women, especially mothers. They guilt them into questioning their choice to go to work, leaving their children behind. They tell women they can earn a living with this scheme so they do not need a traditional job. Giving up a job for this scheme would be a disaster.

People who join these schemes are put in really difficult positions and can waste many months and hundreds or thousands of their own money before they realise it is a scam. Please help protect future victims of this type of company by not allowing it a presence at your fair.

Please advise if you need further information on the matter.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter,

 

Kind Regards,

 

MLM at school fair, fete, market stall etc

Dear organiser,

I have noticed that (insert MLM here) will be appearing at your…………… on……….. at…………..  The inclusion of this organisation concerns me somewhat, for the following reasons.

  1. The products from this type of company are often of average or below average quality, with inflated prices. The prices are expensive to reflect the commission that needs to be paid to the seller, the person who recruited them, their recruiter, etc, all the way to the top of the pyramid.
  2. The people running these stands will say they are an independent, local business but that is not true. The main company is a large one and the stall holder is just a contractor who pays for the ability to sell the products. They are tied to the main company by a very restrictive contract and actually have very little say in what they can do.
  3. The people in these schemes will try and recruit the people at fairs so they can earn off the commission they might make. They especially target women, young mums and pregnant women who might feel they need more time at home.
  4. Research by the FTC in America has shown that 99% of people in these schemes lose money. Figures published by these types of company show that the average earnings before expenses is dismally low. Search for an ‘Income Disclosure Statement’ for the company to see what their figures are.

 

The general public are becoming increasingly aware of this type of scam and the inclusion of it at your event will diminish the enjoyment of many people and tarnish the event’s reputation.  Please reconsider this stall’s inclusion at your event, both to protect your reputation and the risk to the attendees of being recruited into the money losing scheme.

Please advise if you need further information on the matter.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter,

 

Kind Regards,
