Melaleuca / scam and trap
No one should ever be obligated to purchase something they don't want. I found myself feeling uneasy through the presentation. I was told the products were so natural that a baby could drink them. So I asked for a bottle of several Melaleuca products and read the labels. Sure enough each one had a warning: for external use only drink water immediately and call a poison control center. ("so natural that a baby could drink them") That was only the first lie. The comparison between Melaleuca products to other brands made me smirk. I don't use any of the products they to compared Melaleuca.
Then came the whole load of Shtooyot about purchasing points. 35 points mandatory every month (around $55 - $62). What happens if I already have too much Melaleuca and don't want to spend $60 this month? They just send me the back up order from the form that they were trying to get me to fill out. Whether I want to spend or not they take my money and send me more overpriced zevel, So they have rights to my bank account now? I would feel more like I am being taxed illegally. Taxation without representation. If I remember right we fought a war to be free of that. This company is downright un-American. In addition I was asked to sign a form to be a marketer selling this scam. I refused. I will not sell something I have never used. The sales rep snatched my other form quickly from under me. I suppose he thinks he will charge my Visa. The one I closed out. I can live without it for a week. He then told me I have to sign the marketer form. I said no. He wanted to charge me an extra $29 for it too. I told him again no. Then I told him I will research this company more before making any commitments. The anger in his face was quite telling. He then told me how long he and his wife had been with Melaleuca. Even before they were married. Yes can you believe that two Melaleuca reps went and got hitched? He then went into praising Melaleuca products again telling me that since he had began using Melaleuca Tooth Polish (Tooth paste) he had almost completely no problems with his teeth. Hmmm? Have you ever heard the expression "out of the mouth of babes"? Well not long after this his son smiled at me. The child's front teeth were black. I was stunned, a very very sad thing to see. Sheqer! A *** sales-thief more dishonest than intelligent, and that poor child. How could he? We left there and began researching Melaleucha on the internet as I said I would. If for nothing else to simply be true to my own word. We read a myriad of complaints about the company. Especially from people trying to get out from under them. I was not surprised by this. The written and faxed membership cancellation letters supposedly not being received by Melaleuca is classic big business delinquency. This kind of tactic is known all too well in many other countries. A tough economy has been in such nations much longer. In the U.S. our generation is now only beginning to see what desperation in a bad economy does to people. G'navim like Melaleuca use these times and types to swindle for them. But they are only a symptom of the sickness. Corruption of the high authorities of a country causes this lack of prosperity. When times are tough people become desperate. Poor countries have their pick pockets and prostitutes as airport and metropolitan greeters. They await foreigners with the wealth to travel there and exhibit their sorry state as living proof of this. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":
There are about 40 million people over age 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire. = Forty million job openings = result = Unemployment fixed.
2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. = Forty million cars ordered = result = Auto Industry fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage = result = Housing Crisis fixed.
Get any easier than that?
If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes...
While we're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed quick!
As for Melaleuca I could smell the baaaddd of them from the presentation. The more business they get, the more enemies they make.
Want your friends to treat you like a leper? Just get involved with some scam like Melaleuca and they will never talk to you again. This would be great during an H1N1 hog flu outbreak or if you just want to be left alone, very alone.
Vinegar, salt, seltzer, all great non Toxic cleaners. Vinegar is a superb *** killer. Rubbing alcohol is fine for windows and mirrors just have ventilation and common sense. Shaving cream? A regular bar soap works well. After shave? Again rubbing Alcohol works fine without extra smells and chemicals. Under Arm Deodorant? Well anyone who lives close to the ocean can test this. Salt water when it dries works very well. I live far from the ocean and buy $peed $t!ck Active Fresh by M&nn&n. It has no Aluminum and costs less than $3.00 at [protected]@[protected]@rt. My point is obvious. No one needs to spend a fortune on home care products. The old ways are still the best. Forget cult like sellers like Melaleuc who need to trap people into buying their obviously over price zevel. Want a healthy way to clean your house, and toiletries for your body that are not a Chem. Lab? Ask the most lucid elderly people you know how their parents and grandparents did it before these chemicals were invented. In fact how did humanity survive the past millennia without all of this modern poison? Common sense is a knocking, beckoning you to contemplate this for the apparent and inevitable conclusion.
