Josh Ryder Amway Salesman Misrepresenting Himself Mall Area, Tennessee

*General Comment: Amway Technics

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I was approached by this guy in Wal-Mart while shopping for groceries.  He commented on my fitness level and attire, feigning interest in the sports and activities I enjoyed.  After a minute of awkward chit-chat he suggested that I might be interested in an 'endorsement company' business he worked with and offered the opportunity to 'get free stuff' and 'make extra money'.  

He was polite, if a little awkward, and I was pretty sure that it was going to be a scam, but I don't mind listening to people who are passionate about something... who knows, maybe someday something real will come along... so I gave him a G-Voice number and let him call me later with the pitch.  He called the following afternoon and wanted to set up a time that I could log into a password protected web page and view a presentation.


But I can save you some time with a single word:  Amway.  I don't have a problem with Amway and actually was involved with it many years ago... it's just not something I'm interested in.... What I have a problem with someone flat-out lying to me about the business they are representing.  

I called Mr. Ryder back and told him that I was not interested and that I did not appreciate the way he misrepresented himself to me, and he became angry and attacked me telling me that not wanting to sell Amway was the reason that I would never go anywhere in life.  It made me feel bad for the guy, in a way, but it also made me angry enough to post this. 

Josh - if you read this - you seemed like a decent enough guy... please go find a job with a company that doesn't force you to lie about who they are in order to start a sales conversation.

I just wanted to tell you that this is a common sales practice with Amway. Amway representatives have very little if no proper sales training. This type of sales practice is common all over the country.
