See, melaleuca works by way of Teams (look it up). They try to deny this, but the prices are so high you have to be a preferred member to get the lowest price, and in order to do that you have to join under a team. Once there they are hardly going to let you sit there and purchase your minimum points. [continued below]....
And teams are nothing but MLM strucure of payout. You don't recruit people to sell, you recruit people so they can sign up and buy a crap load for themselves. ..and you make money off of it. Wouldn't it be easier to go out with a license to sell these products to people who want them? That would be direct selling. Now you see the difference between direct selling and Multi Level Marketing, doofs. You see how melaleuca is Not direct selling. There are plenty of programs on the net where you can direct sell and the products can ship from a warehouse and you never have to keep them at your house. Why not look into it?
As far as the real scam, try cancelling. I did. Closed my account and sent my first order BACK. And they sent an email saying wait 5 to 10 days for the money to be returned to your credit card. After 10 days I called and the rep told me that instead of putting the money back they had issued a credit to my melaleuca account!! I almost turned red!! SCAM ALERT... How can you issue a credit to a closed account?? So I logged onto the customer account on the melaleuca site to see if there was money or points sitting there and NOPE! Nothing.
First of all, I should not have been able to log onto that crap site, secondly there were no credits. If I had wanted to place an order right then and there I would have had to pay out of pocket.
I think this company must make at least 2 million dollars a YEAR from people who forget about the money that was suppoed to be credited to their cards!!
Complete Scam and Completely unethical. This is one thing on top of the many reasons why you should stay away from this place unless you have low self esteem and just NEED very badly right now something rather than the dark hole that is nothing in your life.
I'm a woman so forgive me for saying, but this is probably why a lot of moms (females) are attracted to melaleuca because mentally and emotionally they are battered and allow themselves to be treated in a substandard way.
