I did. A few years ago, my wife's friend came over with some smooth talking dude, and convinced us that Quickstar would be the solution to our financial problems. The promises were just within reach, but still unrealistic. We joined, $275 later. We went to some of the meetings, and the reality quickly set in. The master of all pyramid schemes, Amway. Most of the people were making money off of each other by selling motivational tapes, rather than products.

I did a bit of research after that and found out what that really was. Found a bunch of pending lawsuits, inditements, tax evasion, etc...

I was lucky in that I lost only $275. Good lesson though.

How 'bout you?

Rule of thumb. Sounds too good to be true it is.

The facts are always attainable. Before investing in anything do your homework.

I know about 30 guys who are interested in Pure Romance products. If your serious about making some sales (and lots of tips) let's set up a time and place where you can demonstrate the proper use of the products on your self, or other female assistants. We're gonna want to videotape and distribute the instructions. No wives! This is purely instructional so we can surprise our wives.

Lemme know. :thumb:

Every one of my wifes sisters/brothers and parents did the third party phone deal (brother in law was selling it Excel communications or one of those). Signed up then realized that they were paying more every month. Each one of them lost several hundo. Glad I married the smart one she didn't sign up.

Haha. I forgot all about Excel. I joined up with that shit about 10 years ago. At the time, their prices were the best deal going. So I joined up and got serveral friends and relatives to join. Then I got one check for about 10 bucks. After that all of the main phone companies dropped their price and started offering money to switch their service. I advised all my customer to take the checks and switch.

x2. Same here. Some of them were good at it and actually were able to quit their jobs and live comfortably with it, so if you dedicate yourself to it, its possible, I'm just not gonna risk my future with it. It's not that important. The funny thing is though, the guys that started the program with Quixstar are GMI alumni. :sonicjay:

I owned four 900 numbers.
Made some money for a while but back then they started getting REAL popular.
It just wasnt worth spending money for ads so I sold them.

I got suckered in to quickstar also, I went to a couple of meetings and noticed all of the brain washed people. The people who run those meetings are really good motivational speakers. They didn't discuss anything that had do with the products or how to sell them. it was a joke. I bailed, I was only out 200 though. :stan3:

I have never bought into those things based on my general lack of trust. I had a customer who used to come in and try to get me to sign up onto a pyramid scheme telling me how rich he was and how he makes so much cash. I asked him why if he makes so much money, if he is soooo rich why he is working as a purhcasing agent for an office supply company? I have never seen him again. some of those things are cult like. I have seen those scams ruin marriages, friendships, peoples lives.

The latest one that I have heard about was some prepaid law services. As I understood it, you got X hours alotted to you to use for checking documents and phone consultation from some "lawyer". Anyone else have any good/bad experiences with them? Sound pretty pyramid-ish to me.

Prepaid Legal? Yeah that one is a bunch of crap. Same deal, people get a hold of you and want you to come to a meeting over a "business proposition". Your main focus is making money and getting more people involved selling bs.
