Dennis, I agree with your example but for one thing...I teach my people NOT to shop their mall and here is why:
I am going to share a tip with everyone that I discovered, "Never shop
at your own mall". Sound crazy? Not if your mall is a business mall
(and it should be). Look at the compensation plan in the files section
of this group, notice that you are paid the most on your 4th tier? You
should always shop in the mall that is your 3rd mall down (your mall is
the 1st tier) and teach the people in your downline to do the same.
There are 2 reasons to do this. Number 1 you make more bu doing it and
2 you send that purchase up through your group, so instead of just you
benefiting, the group does. Also something else will happen. We all
have people in our group who only signed up because they are our
friends and probably have no intention of working this right? Well what
do you think will happen when they start receiving checks for doing
nothing? Of course they will then ask you where the money came from and
you then explain to them that if they want more money all they need to
do is what you did, ask people to join something that is free! What
could be easier than that? And this will keep duplicating itself into
infinity! Don't worry that your mall will not get shopped because
remember you are someone elses 3rd mall!
You see Dennis, I don't just talk the talk, I walk the walk. I actually support my downline and help them build their business and have created a group to do just that:
So yes Dennis if done the RIGHT WAY you really can make a lot of money with My Power Mall. Any other questions?

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid...
