Avon Pyramid Scam

Has Avon Evolved into a Pyramid Scam like other Hardcore MLMs?


Avon sells beauty products like lotions, creams, wrinkle removal formulas and makeup using a multi-level marketing (MLM) format and claims to sell mostly to persons who have “no intention” of becoming distributors. With their highly leveraged pay plan (rewarding those at the top at the expense of a revolving door of downline recruits), is Avon just another MLM scam, or product-based pyramid scheme with members seeking MLM addiction treament at ibogaine clinics like those of the Mannatech scam?

Avon Home Business Opportunity or Avon Scam?

If there is an Avon pyramid scam, you need to warn others. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Despite what you may have been told, it was never about working hard. Pyramid scams are designed to "use up" and replace the base of the pyramid. The network base is like a revolving door for victims. The idea that only those who "work at it" succeed, is an absurd distraction designed to make victims exit quietly. The only ones who succeed in an endless chain or pyramid scam are those who effectively recruit new victims. MLM Exits can require help from expert cult councelors.

"Friends" don't recruit friends into buying "opportunity" and don't promise financial returns for working hard at combining the ideas of social networking, product sales and "buying-in." These are distinctly separate behaviors that become entangled in the context of a pyramid scam. People offering to sell such "opportunities" are not your friends. Extensive research shows you will lose money in any MLM, as is the case for 99% of Avon participants. Avon bears a resemblence to the Mannatech's scam.
