According to the research online regarding the company its been banned in Nepal and Bhutan and it collapsed in srilanka and Philippines and even in chennai in India it had a shut down due to scam reasons but still the company seems to be on its feet in mumbai in India.

I wonder how and why... when its been legally banned and shut down in these countries how come is it still functioning in mumbai... isn't binary system where they are selling products to its own members a scam.

I completely disagree with this complaint, because in srilanka, napal &
bhutan, these companies is not banned but all this type of concept is banned
so that they can save they money from outsourcing, not because companies are
illegal or fraud.
But in India there is no any type of banning in this type of concept,so according
to Indian law, these companies are not illegal. Most important that you can see
the registration of this company in www.mca.gov.in (ministry of corporate affairs).
If you find this company registration then how can you tell that company is illegal or fraud.

So dear friends, dont blaim any companies even persons without proper investigation.
here i would like to tell one hindi proverbs.

Best concept, best compensation plan, exclusive product line, out of the world (best of the best) service, to feel proud to be a part of COMPANY.With at least 10% commencement you rake in mullah.

Those who are saying QN is illigal,they must visit
www.mca.gov.in if they have guts..Even Govt. of Orissa & Puri Temple Trust have

See, the growth of this scheme is greater than the growth of population. It has to end, with half roughly 1/3 members (1/2 at the worst case) being members without anyone under them. They will lose terribly. Just because growth is not happening in a balanced manner, this stuff will last for many years. Unlike Amway and such companies, this company sells near worthless products (Gold is worth its wait of course, but there is no real collection value to the coins they issue. Maybe in a 1000 years...) People have tried to sell it at 2/3rd the price at which they bought it in eBay.com, but no one made a bid for most of these. Here are some more links:

Hi Dear,

I tried searching www.mca.gov.in, but i didn't find any reference to questnet over there. Could someone pls provide the actual complete link where we can find the company's registration information?

Thanks,
Deepak

GoldQuest International Ltd. claims to be a mail order retail company. In reality it is a very steep pyramid organization.

What does GoldQuest sell? This is what their presentation says, ??In quest for the best product, the company chose to retail the One Ounce American gold coin, the One Ounce Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin, the One Ounce Australian Nugget gold coin, and a selection of gold coin jewelries. Why gold coins? Gold has a universal market appeal; an excellent investment because of its intrinsic value, a hedge against inflation, devaluation or economic down-trend, very easy to buy or sell (a case of liquidity).??

Sounds great. For centuries people have been working and fighting to accumulate gold.

Hold your horses. How much will you have to pay for your gold coin? $700 + $30 shipping and insurance. However, you don?t have to pay $700 upfront, GoldQuest will let you have your gold coin and your Tracking Center Registration for only $300 + $30 shipping and insurance! Nice guys!

Don?t be naive. Have you bothered to check how much one ounce of gold is worth. It is about US$270 and the trend is downward. GoldQuest is definitely not the place to buy


your gold coins.

GoldQuest proponents will be a little embarrased to admit that they were a little bit dishonest in selling you a $270 gold coin for $700. But they have been well-trained to hype the business.

They will move on to tell you that your $700 is not just buying you a coin, but it is setting you up in business. Your GoldQuest pyramid starts with you as a TCO (Tracking Center Owner). You start by persuading two people to buy gold coins. Each of these people, in turn, should each persuade two other people to buy gold coins. As the referrals grow downward you earn $400 for every five sales on the right and five sales on the left of your tree. Those under you will also eventually earn $400 for every five referrals on the right and five referrals on the left of their own trees below you.

In typical pyramid fashion the guys on top of the pyramid get rich and enjoy life. But where does the money come to pay your commissions? It does not come from GoldQuest . There is no perpetual motion machine. The money comes from the lowest three layers of the pyramid.

For you to earn your first $400, at least eleven people (five on the right and five on the left and you) have to invest or commit $730 to buy gold coins - a revenue of $8,030 for GoldQuest in exchange for about $3,000 worth of coins, freight and commission. A neat profit of $3,600. If the pyramid stops growing we have ten people holding on to $2,700 worth of gold but who have paid $7,000. A clear loss of $43,000.

If you can complete a five-level pyramid there will be 63 gold buyers in your group and you?ll receive $2,400 in commission. The two guys under you will get $1,200 each. And four would get $400 each. But a total of 63 gold coins would have been sold at $45,990. If the pyramid stopped growing, 56 people would be stuck with gold worth $270 each after having paid $730 each and would not have gotten a single cent in commission.

GoldQuest revenues from your pyramid add up to $45,990; its cost of commission is $6,400; cost of coins and freight $18,900. That?s $20,690 profit and contribution to overhead.

If GoldQuest , through its Indian marketing activities, is able to build a thousand five-level pyramids, Inda will suffer a dollar outflow of $45,900,000! GoldQuest would have about $20,690,000 in profits and contribution to overhead.

About 1,000 greedy Indian could have earned $2,400 on a $730 investment. Another 2,000 could have earned $1,200 on a $700 investment each. Another 4,000 would have earned $400 each on an investment of $730. Still a negative situation.

But about 56,000 poor Indians would be stuck with $270 worth of gold for $730 of their hard-earned money.

Is that an excellent investment? A hedge against inflation? Earning dollars for the country?

As a Rotarian I urge you to apply the Four Way Test to the GoldQuest scheme:

Is is the truth?
It is fair to all concerned?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendship?
Ask the thousands who will be stuck with gold coins worth much less than what they paid for.

First of all, you are asked to buy a coin for over twice it's market value. Why would you do this?! Then you're required to recruit a total of 6 more people in order to be paid 11,000 Rs. Using simple math, you come out with a net loss of 5,000 Rs. (30,000 - 14,000 market value = 16,000 net loss - 11,000 IF you recruit 6 more people = 5,000 net loss total).

So basically, you're paying THEM 5,000 Rs for the privilege of recruiting 6 people to do the exact same thing as you've done. The only people winning here are those who've duped you. This is a classic pyramid scheme and it's illegal (also called Multi-Level Marketing, MLM). They may not have been proven guilty YET, but they will be eventually...hopefully before they skip town with your money and everyone else's who fell for this. Run. Don't walk. RUN AWAY!

Pyramid schemes work on the principle of the more people under you, the more you get paid. The problem is, where does the money come from? It eventually runs out as more recruits are required to be paid, and the pyramid implodes leaving lots of people out of some serious investment capital.

There is limited space here to define these schemes, describe exactly how they operate and the pitfalls of them. The 3 links below are good sites that will give you all the info you possibly may need to make a wise choice regarding the MLM schemes.

Dear friend,
Thanks for all foolish complains. Put more complains so that people laugh at ur knowledge n information. In Nepal it is ban because import of gold is banned. But who stops you to buy Bio Disc,Mobilephone,Air ticket,Hotel and thousand of the best product by this company.There r three types of people one who makes thing happen,second is who watch thing happen and third is what happened when it happen. and 3 countries banned does not mean UNO has banned. Successfully runing in 185 contries. If India and any other developed contries follows these 3 small under developed counties then I will agree, it is scam. Write down my word within 4-5 yrs it will legal,etical,profitable and proven business plan in every country. How can u challange UN development fund which is core supporter? How can u doubt intregrity of world badmitnton federation,How can u say Ferari formula1 races organiseris fraud or scam. Keep watching things. Please keep writing more complains n do nothing n one day disapear. In fact U people r really to be loved. Please keep doing whatever u r doing n be happy. Only 3 % people in the world do questnet n becomes millionere. It is not cup of tea for every body.97% people must remain there only who always works for those 3 percent. Be happy. If U have little bit logic brain to analyse the entire thing. Thanda dimag lagakar sochen. What U need to do then act accoringly. We just wasting time. Time is wealth,health n life. N life is urs not mine.

For ur surprise there are 21 different com under QI group. If u dont no please find out. I give u only 1 tip check bonvo.com. One day It has its own empire . within 3 yrs there will be country who opposes this life changing business concepts. Read more books like new profession , financial freedom,famous magazine like forbe magazine, Listen Bill gates,Donald trump,Kiosaki what they have to say about company. Dhobi guffa always leads u towards trobules. U know it has got own comn system,own tv station,own eastate,own hotel n resturan,It is real estate market also? Oneday every thing will come under QI gp.
