SEO Reputation Management at its best!

This company advertises on craigslist for marketing jobs that will lead to mangement opportunites, Promotions,Sales, Marketing, Entry-Level Management, and Training.  

They convince you that you can do all of this if you can first sell their product, in this case Victoria Jackson make-up, whatever that is?  This consists of you walking up to every and any person on the street and asking them if they would buy a $80 package for $20, if no, on to the next for 8 hours a day, if so then you have just made a pryamid sale for your 'manager'.  You made $7 for one sale, he made $7 for you selling for him, and the $6 goes to the actual product.  

You are 'encouraged' to sell 15-20 packets a day at whatever cost and then you will be moved into the 'management program'.  Now you get to bring in your own team/crew so they can start selling for you and for your 'manager'. [continued below]....
..... The more they sell the more you get and he gets, and the pryamid keeps growing from there.

Foundation Marketing tries to pass this off as actual marketing, but it is direct sales in a shady setup.  Anyone who actually knows a thing about marketing will know this a joke and should run quickly.  They will try to teach you the 5-step sale method, and the 'law of averages' which mainly means the more people you try to pawn this product off to the better chance you will have to sell 15-20/day.

Please do not be fooled by the ad's for jobs, or the 'easy-money' you can make while becoming a 'manager'.  All you are doing in lining the pockets of the people above you.  Beware of this scam!
