I kind of reminds of me of my upline thinking when I was duped into joining Amway. You don't retail the products. You consume $200 worth of your own products, sign up 2 people each month, who will also consume an average $200 worth each month. Oh yeah, the next month, you have to recruit 2 more and your 2 initial recruits will need to bring in 4 more who will consume $200 worth each month.
By the third month you have 6 in your first layer, 12 in your second, 12 in your third, and I forgot how many in the fourth but believe it was 16. So, you would have 46 in your downline, each consuming $200 worth, or $9,200 in sales, to generate an income of several hundred dollars to you, plus your own discount/rebates/savings on the $200 worth we were suppossed to consume. With just a couple more layers of "2s", we could be receiving over $2000 in month income, that would be sustained and continue to grow and each dealer brought in 2 more every month.
Of course by the 18th month, the pyramid would be unsustainable, with hardly anyone left in the US, to be recruited by those on the bottom layer along with all the other layers. But, those of us at the top, would have enjoyed a brief, but profitable ride while it lasted - if only we had been able to get those first 2 recruits!
Of course, with the Powermall being free, the bottom layer of recruits has nothing to lose and can still earn rebates on their own personal purchases.
My home-based business that works! Period.

| 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!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
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... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
