    You literally just real life trolled a pyramid scheme, and internet trolled the internet not actually scamming the pyramid scheme of anything. You should at least put the company on blast because you’re protecting their identity by not saying who they really were. Which leads me to believe ...None of this ever happened and you just American psycho’d us all

    Exactly same thing happened to me here in Spain..haha..but I did not think of it as a scam but I would say it is because exactly same thing happen word to word except the part not googling anything..they did no ask me resume..but I turned it down thinking it is not really worth it even as a business model to invest in..

    Despite your video title being misleading, i felt the cult vibe as well. Someone got me to go to an Amway event. I thought it was a weird religious group. A buddy of mine got roped in to it because this hot chick who worked as a banker did this on the side. She had the poor dope wrapped around her finger.

    I was approached by a local chiropractor about Amway (Quixtar at the time....2007 or so) and he was very proud to show me his checks from his "business." I recall thinking the amounts were pretty crappy considering the money he had to invest and time he had to spend hustling people at their homes after hours. I mean, like I could have made as much money pumping gas (or basically doing ANYTHING part time) with way less stress.
