Legitimate Claim or Witch Hunt?

I have heard it said that “the upside to having a career in Network Marketing is that you work with people and the the downside to having a career in Network Marketing is that you work with people.” This is definitely true for Herbalife, the health and wellness Network marketing company that is being investigated after being accused of being a pyramid scheme.

The reason they are being investigated is because they were contacted by ex reps with claims of reps saying the product could cure cancer, help with infertility, and other health and wellness claims. They are also investigating because of the income claims being put out there by reps as well. The company, as a whole, are being penalized for the claims of some of their distributors; claims that the company doesn’t even make.

While I am not in any way affiliated with Herbalife, I am rooting for them to get through this investigation unscathed because, if they can go after and bring down a legitimate company like that, think about what the negative effect that will have on the rest of the network marketing world.
