Type in "Monavie" in the search field on Facebook. You will find numerous false claims. It is clearly stated that making claims that Monavie cures anything is illegal. Nothing has been proven about this Jesus juice. It is a cult and all of its members are zombies that follow scam artists like Orrin and Dallin. Here are some examples of why this disaster should be shut down:
WORDS ARE SPELLED INCORRECTLY BECAUSE I TYPED THEM EXACTLY AS THE POST WAS.
Suzanne Boshart: "Anyone with any health issues should go on Monavie. It saved my life!"
Monavie West Palm Beach: "People have inflamation in there bodies, joint pain, fibromyaliga, heart disease, and more. Heal your body with Monavie and have the fruits do the work.
Monavie West Palm Beach: "Along with school supplies stock your cabinets with monavie. keep kids in school no more runny noses etc. keep parents at work. healthy way is the best way.
Monavie West Palm Beach: "Health with wealth. Who's with me?
These people are absolutely insane and they will say anything to get someone to sign up. It is complete garbage and I cannot believe people actually buy into it. It is nothing more than a pyramid scheme. Virtually no direct selling. Their time will run out soon, hopefully before they lose everything they had.
Horrible health scare and illness reaction to consuming this product! Swollen lymph node in my right arm followed by huge purple streakings up and down the arm. The bones in my hand and arm ached for days. Thought I had cancer or organ failure because after the purple streaks went away (when I stopped ingesting this product) a yellowly jaundice color remained almost like brusining. But the pain of the the joints and bones of my arm and hand were almost intolerable. I wasn't sure of the cause of this devasting health scare until I stopped using Monavie. Once I resumed injesting this "toxic poison" to my body, the described symptoms immediately returned.
I encourage anyone else with a similar reaction to Monavie to step forward and share in a hopeful class action greivance and complaint against this Company. They need to be held accountable for inflicting this pain and suffering I have been forced to endure.
how do i cancel my monavie account? i can't find [email protected] it's like they're playing games with us.i'm getting rather pissed off. mrs. debbie mcgee
Monavie is a pyramid marketing scheme!
Monavie uses the term multi-level marketing (MLM). It is the same concept as a pyramid scheme. It is a legal way to scam unsuspecting people. The only way to become successful in this scheme is to cheat other people by promising them financial independence. This is the number one way to recruit new members. In reality, the new distributors have a very slim chance in making any profits from this scheme.
In the case of Monavie, its' own 2007 income disclosure statement says that "fewer than 1 percent qualified for commissions and of those, only 10 percent made more than $100 a week".1 In other words, only 0.1% of the distributors see any income from this venture. As such, it is extremely difficult to make any money as a distributor for Monavie.
For example to earn a commission of $300 you have to sell 30 cases or 300 bottles, which they refer to as 3, 000 GSV, each bottle is worth anywhere from $37 (standard pricing) to $27 (bulk pricing), which means you have to recruit at least 30 of your friends/family to buy on a weekly basis at least 4 bottles each. This calculation is based on the pricing and compensation data from their website.2
When you go to a Monavie meeting the first thing they will do is show you testimonials and photos of people in front of nice cars, homes, and yachts. The last thing they talk about is the actual business behind the product. This is to appeal to your emotions and to distract you from the real business. Once you're emotions are worked up it is harder to think logically. This is how they bring people to sign up.
Pay attention to the numbers. To see the truth recreate the financial model behind the distributors compensation structure. Do not get distracted by the sales presentation. They will use language like, "we do not sell... we share" (if that were the case then Monavie should be free of charge for everyone, all the time).
CLUE: The average distributor will never see any money from this company.
The real winner here is Monavie. Because they manage to create 5 million sales distributors, who are also customers, without the overhead burden of a traditional sales force. These people are all hoping to make money when in reality <1% see any profits, the rest will see only losses.3
Ignore all the testimonials and the lifestyle pitch. This is just a way to get you to think with your emotions rather than your brain!

2The data above are based on various information provided by several Monavie representatives and distributors, and through an objective study of their product pricing and compensation structure, based on company literature, website and input from Monavie distributors.
3Pay attention to the actual numbers, not the numbers they put up in the screen. Calculate the numbers yourself. It will take some work, because the information you need are located in various places and not clearly discernible. They use terms that will confuse the average person, like 200 PSV or 1, 000 GSV, which are meaningless to the average person. This is designed so that it is harder to recalculate the actual compensation and the amount of work required to obtain it. A real business person will not pay attention to the marketing fluff, but only the real financial return of the business!
I was hospitalized for 6 days . I had been drinking monavie for about 6
weeks. I started vomiting a juice colored liquid that smelled like mona vie. I did not realize it was mixed with blood. I need 7 transfusions and almost died. I did not think it could be the juice, but
after reading other peoples bleeding stories about monavie, i believe
the juice caused the bleeding. If anyone else has had an episode like mine, please contact. Ann
Hated the product. Was told that it was sugar-free and had no preservatives. It had sugar and had such a bad aftertaste that I could not get it down. Was urged by the person who signed me up to try it for another 60 days. I sent MonaVie an email cancelling my March 2009 order in plenty of time. They shipped the order and charged my credit card. When I complained, they intercepted the shipment and charged me $26.20 for shipping. Do not do business with this company. Their product is not natural and they are a scam. I should have known better, but when you are sick and disabled, you will try anything to try to feel better. Taking advantage of disabled people on social security will not win them a seat in the ethics hall of fame. I can only hope that enough people are warned before signing up with these thieves. I would love to receive information about all of the sites and bulletin boards available for posting to warn everyone about these people. STAY AWAY FROM MLMs. They only make the people at the top rich!
My girlfriend has built up several MLM distributorships with other companies so when she heard of this one she went to a presentation. She came home screaming about the fraud.
A couple connected to her hopeful sponsor were out of Oakdale and she said the man is huge, sick and disgusting in appearance and wife looks like she has a drug problem. Not a great example for what this juice does for you.
In her short time spent there she caught too many conflicting stories and claims by this couple which lost her trust. Another distributor told her the woman tried to pass herself off as a nursing graduate, but knows jack and has worked in finance instead. The truth was out in the group that the two are out of work and desperately pushing MonaVie, to the point complaints have been made about the man and his attempts to harrass and intimidate distributors.
My girlfriend thouroughly has researched MonaVie's public financial records. She knows they went from 91, 000 dist to just over 60, 000 this past year and that some Rubys have seen under $1000 in a year. All of this denied and lied about at the meeting and when directly asked.
This MLM is limited to one product, the berry product. This limits any true demand or flexibility is filling needs of a variety of people. The way it is set up, it's distributors are desparate.
I read some distributor on here claiming a client of his could not stop drinking the juice because her body needs it. Hmmm, so, I guess when I drink 6 cokes in a day I am doing it because it is sooo nutritious?
With this economy, predators are desperate to feed on the down and out. Beware of people who are as despearate or more than you to get ahead and want to do it at your expense.
I was approached by my sister a year and a half ago to try this nutritional beverage. I knew my sister who...
I have read several complaints about this company and I really feel bad for the people who have spent their hard earned money on this product to only be scamed. I had a bottle given to me to try and to get me to sign up. I drank the bottle and it wasn't a bad product, when I found out what it would cost me a week to keep drinking it, I decided against it. I started reading the beneifits of the acai berry and was really impressed. I finally found a product that was alot cheaper than monavie, it was 100% organic acai with 100% organic concord grape added to enhance flavor, no team to join, and you order on your own terms. No auto-ship and no unathorized billing. You have the option to join as a distributor or just buy as you need it. I decided to join, not to get rich, but to save on what I drank myself. I have a few family members that I ordered it for just for them to try and now they drink it. I order though my membership and they pay my cost. I don't avertise that I'm a member or even try to make any money from it. I just enjoy the beneifits of the product. That's the reason I'm writing this, is to give you an option to drink the acai juice, save money, and even sale it if you choose too. You will not have any meetings or pressure from the company to buy. You won't even hear from them unless you contact them. If you would like to read more on the company and their products, you can go to my members website for all the imformation. www.amazonthunder.com/members/evenbetter . You can also email me with any questions. Thanks
Original I was advised to sign up for free samples and info my credit card would be charged $39.00. This was in June, 2008. Since August I have dealt with MonaVie about charging my credit card 3x$142.00 and 1x$187.00. Monavie has claimed that shipments were sent and UPS has stated that they delivered to my porch this shipments. I have not received any product from Monavie nor has UPS delivered any product to my address to me. Monavie filed a claim with UPS for $40.00 a box whereas they charged by cc 3X$142.00 and 1X$187.00. Monavie stated that I signed up for auto ship which I did not. They then told me to get ahold of my sponsor, which I also explained I do not have one. When advised a the name I then informed them that he was in jail and his person has a disconnected phone. I want my cc credited immediately and never to deal, know the name of Monavie again.
I signed up for the MonaVie business opportunity in March of this year. I have worked really hard to build...
