I wonder if this questioned is asked because people really want to know if network marketing is a scam because if it isn’t they’re ready to get in the game of entrepreneurship or is it just a passive move to stick with their J.O.B. It sometimes surprises me when people who seem to be otherwise intelligent and aware asks if network marketing is a pyramid scheme, a home based business scam or multi level marketing scam. I know they’re intelligent enough to know their corporate organization is also based on a pyramid structure. But does a pyramid structure represent an actual pyramid scheme? NO it doesn’t.

This similarity of the one at the top making most of the money while those at the bottom make little to no money still doesn’t make the typical corporation a pyramid scheme.

Instead a residual income scam is what’s for sale and involves money exchange for enrolling people in the pyramid scam based on a fake business model offering a ghost product or service and the top people receive most of the money. Some of these scams are internet marketing scams so don’t let the high-tech outfit fool you. Even if someone came in down the line and put in more effort, they wouldn’t make more money if any at all.

Let’s make this clear, a pyramid structure doesn’t always mean it’s a pyramid scheme.
