What does MLM have to do with the Amway scam subject? Well, MLM stands for Multi-Level Marketing and it refers to the marketing structure that is used by Amway Global and other companies.
The reason it is referred to as multi-level or pyramid, is because it is designed to compensate a seller not only on their individual sales but also the sales of those that they introduced to the company.
This is usually the selling point for people and why they end up joining in the first place. It’s basically pitched as a “can’t lose” system. But nothing is that simple, and there is far more to it. The nature of this structure is why you will often here Amway Global associated with the terms ‘network marketing scam’ or ‘pyramid scam’.
