Melaleuca Scam

Find out the truth here!

Are you worried that Melaleuca may be a scam? If you are, you are not the only one.

In this article, you’ll hear about the most common complaints about this company and if there really is a Melaleuca scam.

*This is a third party review – I’m not affiliated with the company in any way Melaleuca Scam – Not enough transparency on the website

On the Melaleuca website, there are plenty of stories. You can hear about the story of the stay at home mom, the business professionals and so forth – how they made money and became successful. This is useful because people like stories. You can relate to a story.

But the problem is – I don’t see any in depth explanation of the business model or compensation plan in plain sight. In this information age, people need to be able to research more in depth on their own, without having to only depend on a representative for explanation.

Of course, this fact alone does not make Melaleuca a scam, but it can make people a lot more wary before joining the company. (And you can find the comp plan on the internet – it’s just not plainly visible on the main site.)

Melaleuca Scam RepsMelaleuca Scam – Shady marketing practices used by some Melaleuca reps

What kind of shady marketing tactics am I referring to: misleading ads on Craigslist, reps twisting the facts about the fees and monthly requirements, and I could go on and on. Seriously, these types of complaints are easy to find on the internet.

And yes, there will be bad apples in this, and every company. But that does not mean there’s a Melaleuca Scam. You see, it is impossible for a company to know exactly what each rep is saying at any given time.

I personally believe that having integrity in your Melaleuca business is a must. But there will always be those who are more driven by money. Most of the reps in these types of companies are genuine and are looking for a legitimate way to earn an income.

Melaleuca Pyramid ScamMelaleuca pyramid scam – Is it a Pyramid scheme?

First, let’s find out exactly what a pyramid scheme is.

Let’s let the Securities and Exchange Commission define it for us:

“In the classic “pyramid” scheme, participants attempt to make money solely by recruiting new participants into the program. The hallmark of these schemes is the promise of sky-high returns in a short period of time for doing nothing other than handing over your money and getting others to do the same.”

“The fraudsters behind a pyramid scheme may go to great lengths to make the program look like a legitimate multi-level marketing program. But despite their claims to have legitimate products or services to sell, these fraudsters simply use money coming in from new recruits to pay off early stage investors. But eventually the pyramid will collapse. At some point the schemes get too big, the promoter cannot raise enough money from new investors to pay earlier investors, and many people lose their money.”

So basically, according to this definition, Melaleuca is not a pyramid scheme. They do have legitimate, quality products, and there is not a large investment required to become a distributor.

Finally, there a Melaleuca scam?

Even though there are some Melaleuca complaints, it is not a scam. Of course, it’s not the right business for everyone, but if you are committed to learning the right way to market, and you have the motivation to succeed, it may be the business for you.

Talking to your friends and family to get the word out is one way to market this business. But there are other, legitimate ways to market your business – by using the internet to find interested prospects.

Fraud, Scam or whatever people say really doesn’t matter. Or maybe, people don’t read the “out clause” or terms and conditions before signing their name on the dotted line. It does not matter. Here are the Facts about Melaleuca, they sold over a BILLION DOLLARS worth of products, and people must like their products, right?

Pyramid systems have been outlawed in the US a long time ago and they don’t sell any products. We are paid just for referring people to Melaleuca and helping them register and that’s it! No inventory control, no billing, no carrying of products. We are paid on immediate commissions with several tiers of bonuses and handsome residual income, how GREAT is that!

They have paid out over 2.8 Billion in commissions to regular people out there in the past 27 yrs. What is really great about Melaleuca is they genuinely want to HELP. This is Very Rare for a corporate identity. Helping people better their health; getting them out of debt; having a good personal life, so too in preserving our environment, is that a BAD goal to have?

This is more than a business for most of us. You would really have to experience Melaleuca, and when you do, you too would have fallen in love with them just it like the more than 850 thousand families that have joined them. Sorry, but it’s hard to find sad story’s telling lies here. What you will find are people’s experiences in how lives have changed because of Melaleuca.

A Successful Melaleuca breeds successful people and it’s not too late to join us. If you want to succeed and willing to work at it and if you think you are coachable, “We Will Help” because Melaleuca wants us to.

We are just starting; more questions, give me a call, Tony 408-771-0296.
If NOT, then, Good Luck on your travels and I hope you find contentment!

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the comment. You probably know by now that I don’t think that Melaleuca is a scam. I’m just talking about what some people think and how it’s not a scam because of it.

Thanks David,

I know, it just makes me so mad that people are being mislead all of this scam or fraud. I have failed too in some of the things I have gotten myself into but maybe it wasn’t my cup of tea or not now. Would you jump into the pool not knowing how deep is it? People’s complain about Melaleuca are topics that are in the “terms and condition” and sad to say, they could have been snake bitten by with the answers. Some complains really make them so uninformed or really stupid just for a lack of words, even in the way they describe the complain. When I do a presentation for 15 or 1 person, I make sure that people know that they can call me anytime with questions but most of the answers are in the Terms and Condition. And it will take another 30 minutes to discuss so, please read it when they get home. Thank you to site for letting me vent.

Stay Healthy,
