Premerica MLM Scam

VisualMaster

Why are people, specifically lower class Americans stupid enough to fall for MLM schemes like Premerica, and how do they compare to companies such as ACN and Herbalife.

Muh Forbes List
It's not a scam
It's been around since 1977
I'm making 6 figures income!
we sellz life insurance
quit yer job,be your own boss!

If you Youtube search "Premerica Scam" you'll literally get nothing but scripted "testimonials" and "reviews" on Premerica disguised as click bait such as >"Is Premerica a scam?!?!". Not to mention a extensive shitty flame-war against redpilled people debating legitimacy against possibly brainwashed reps or actual Premericca shils.

Discuss.

I once went to an ACN meeting because my financialy low IQ friend forced me to.. its like going to church, it had a cultish vibe going on but with promises of passive income.. I couldnt wait to leave.. it sucked

@SomethingNew

It really is kinda cultish, everyone is wearing business attire, giving forced smiles and chanting while a paid motivational speaker yells "lets make some money!!!"

I had a friend who used to sell those video phones for ACN.

Primerica offers an internship at UIC and I was about to do it my freshman year but this girl told me it was a scam and don't fall for it. Ever since I've been warning people the same thing

My friends parents fell for one called market America and I have friends who fell for Vemma/Verve. They're all bad, every single one.

@kizzmybutt
having friends who got brainwashed by MLM is a pain in the ass, having them peddle their useless video-phones onto you for exorbitant prices when a mobile phone can easily do everything. needless to say, they arent my friends anymore.. Ive never seen such low IQ, cucked human beings

Primerica people are sad.
They are not stupid just greedy/lownself esteem people.
This girl I know have been selling insurance for 2 years, she never made any real money.
She has good intention but sell terrible product to poor people.

2005 or so, poor and directionless
friend pulls me into Primerica meeting
corporate slideshow party, scary chanting
"how would you like to make $500??
"how would you like to make $1000??
"how would you like to make $5000??
holy fuck my time has come
sad, wispy lady makes me write down all the people I know. literally a list of everyone I know
hours of meeting, but no one can tell me what this job actually fucking is
spend all goddamn night at the meeting, finally manage to decipher that I would be selling life insurance
make all these plans to meet them again, bail the fuck out
they call me for months, eventually give up

2016, a month ago
sitting in B&N
sad, wispy lady sits down starts talking to the dude next to me
talk about jobs
"well, how would you like to make some extra income?"
ITS THE SAME FUCKING LADY
10+ years later, same lady selling same hustle
realize I am going to die one day and accomplish none of my dreams
pick up trash filler magazine and go to other end of bookstore
wait to die

you guys think this shit is bad, my friend is selling fucking coffee through a pyramid scheme corp called zinzino.

Told him it was a pyramid scheme once and he spent two weeks watching their corporate youtube videos poorly describing how it is not a pyramid scheme.

All he keeps saying is that he just needs more contacts.

Some girl was telling me about a herballife meeting she went to and I explained her what MLM and pyramid scams are. A week later she was still talking about how wonderful it was.

Some people are just stupid.

The brilliant and evil thing about these MLM companies is after they run out of friends and family to pitch their scam to they start buying leads from their uplines (effectively turning themselves into a low paid telemarketer without even realizing it).

I gotta say, creating one of these things seem like a goddamn ton of effort
Why are these worth the scammer's time?

Also, it's weird people still fall for these. They were the subject of sitcoms growing up. If television can't warn Americans we're all dead

Also the biggest market for these is stay-at-home moms. Kids don't need you? Husband hate you? Show all of them by making more than he does! You'll be on your way to a comfortable divorce in no time with the power of Multi Level Marketing
