As I have read these reports on Melaleuca and whether or not the case may be "MLM", a good company, bad company, product wise or employee ethics...I would like to ask ANY of these individuals, who are claiming that this IS in fact a "legit" company to work for, buy from, (etc) this: Why and HOW would you be able to claim this when the case is NOT whether items were sold, but the fact that I WAS CHARGED AND SENT THESE ITEMS AND KIT when I NEVER agreed to it and explained to the EXTREMELY pushy representative, that under my circumstances...I had not been able to look over and fully read what the MOM team was about.
I told her "No", which means "NOthing" according to Melaleuca/ their staff. I had just moved and was forced to move again, (although I did not feel I had to explain my reasons for not jumping into it quickly) however,I did & this did not matter. MONTHS later, I finally had the dust settle and being a "SINGLE MOM", the very people I feel Melaleuca aims for (look at statistics and see who usually raises the kids-single mothers. "We" are also right up there, leading as far as being the most in debt.) Gee, one might say...vulnerable? I think so.
There's a reason it's not called the DAD team, meaning their target is not men. Instead their "victims", and I say this because I am one- I'm not speaking of the women who feel they've gained something from this. I do feel that Mel. advertises to these women, knowingly & deceptively to promise them a feeling of "acceptance" and "bonding". Well, I bond with my money and I don't respond well when I find out, as I did when I spoke to "Kelly" at the 800 number...that there were charges made to my account but when they found out that I had NOT signed anything...they quit taking money out.
WOULD IT NOT SEEM ETHICAL AND PROFESSIONAL TO RETURN THE FUNDS? How in the world could one argue with THAT? YES, it was out of my moving, starting my own business on top of things, life in general, mail getting lost and BEING OVERWHELMED--AS MOST SINGLE MOTHERS ARE- that I did not catch these charges until recently. Regardless, I am not to blame for the way this was handled.
I would NEVER work for a company THAT OPERATES LIKE THIS. True, any business is going to have problems and people who are not happy completely. That's business. What is NOT business, is when people are saying the same things over and over..as I have read here...there is much truth to be said when the word FRAUD is mentioned. The truth comes out, period. The way this was handled was anything but honest. If and when I do get the funds returned, I'll be sure to report exactly that on this site. Until then, THE TRUTH REMAINS.
