What if a site is setup similar to am MLMMultilevel Marketing is selling products by using independent distributors and allowing these distributors to build and manage their own sales force by recruiting, motivating, supplying, and training others to sell products. The distributors' compensation includes their own sales and a percentage of the sales of their sales group (downline). but really is not one. Or are they all ALWAYS MLM's? Is there a way to tell the legit from the not so legit? If so, how? It seems many are falling prey to this more and more lately as we hear of more people being laid off and trying to work from home.

It's too bad these schemes exist. I wish folks could see constant recruiting will eventually halt. How many people can you really recruit before the "recruitable" people run out! If there was an unlimited supply of people to recruit, then these operations could really make everybody some money. Since unlimited people to recruit is only a dream, the people at the top make the money before the number of "recruitable" people is reached.

But see, that's how they get you. They say they aren't a pyramid schemeA pyramid scheme is an illegal multilevel marketing program in which people pay an entrance fee for the opportunity to recruit others to do the same., because you will be selling their products. Not only will you be selling those products to those who are in desperate need of them, but you get your products at an extremely discounted rate.

I think most MLMs are useless anyway. Granted they are not all scams but most seem rather borderline. The only way to usually make any real money is to recruit more and more people into the "business".

The key factor to determine if it's a real business or a Ponzi scheme is if there is actually products being sold. If your money is earned solely by recruiting then it is not sustainable. Ponzi schemes are illegal in the US.
