former front desk manager at a major business class hotel. i've seen them all. but the ones where I would say a lot of people are making money are usually those things like Mary Kay. its a pyramid but actually its working for a lot of people. its just about turning over the wrong people. there is also some energy drink ones that I believe must have some addictive shit in them that seem to do pretty well. its was always changing names.

child super star ones, child model, child television ones are bottom of the barrel and truly seem to pray on the poorist people out there.

but pyramids with tangible products seem like they have enough money to at least rent an expensive meeting room every month and give away some cars.

I got chargebacked for $1000 USD for TF2 items.

The guy was in Italy, and paypal was like "Nothing we can do"

Heres a tip: Do not sell all at once to one guy.

In college, I was in a stores parking lot, when two dudes in a van show up all excited about the extra speakers they had received. They had some long story about a dude at a loading dock who didn't speak english giving them extra speakers and showed this "brochure" with list price of like 1200. So I bought 2 massive speakers for 300 out of a van. It is actually a pretty common scam. Although they worked, they were some generic brand probably worth like 100.

I'm the guy that invented the wildy lure. Not the one where you trade people just across the barrier without them knowing, but the one where I run around luring them into the multi zone.

Made some mad bank with that. All those retards flaunting their 15m equipment who go "check it out, this noob is drunk and wearing a santa! I better chase him!!"

Good times.

There was one goin about like this around 10 years ago around Heathrow in London. A guy would drive up and show you laptops he was selling, he would show you a real one out of the box and it would all look good. He'd hand you one but when you'd open the box there was two cartons of orange juice inside.

In college a friend of mine hyped up this mlm to me. I didn't know about this yet and he seemed to be making good money. I hung out with him for like 8 hours one day watching him try to get sales. Then I went to a meeting with him. Got freaked out by the cult-like nature of it and bailed, but not before I gave them my info and the info of 5 people I thought could use their product.

Currently being willingly scammed by bitstorm.biz. Just hoping to ride a ponzi cause my thought was "Break even in 10 days? no scam site will only last for 10 days or less." 3 days away from breaking even so we'll see.

If you're looking to scam people I would do some online bitcoin thing.
