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

The Greatest Vitamins in the world is a company that literally rob ones concept of money making and discourages your ability to earn honest money to provide for your family.

I honestly think that we should all stop Don Lapre and the Granteen from ever doing Business again, and stop false adverstisment and the concept of making some one richer by our hard working sweat and money.

This is what false advertisment is and a way to rob those that are innocent to this kind of money making business.

AUTHOR: Mohanie - (U.S.A.)


Regarding the response to my comment, I must let you know that I did not only pay $35.00 and get rob $35.00 this was just for the inital package and then they call you put you to listen to an ad by Don and it advice you which package to buy and tell you how fast you can make the sales base on what you spent.

This happen even before you received the package for $35.00 The first choice as an independent distrubutor was either $300 - $500 -$1,200.00, then they charge you $495.00 to set up the web site, if you do not want to pay that, okay I will charge you $395.00

Then about a month later they call again and go through the same process, now advicing you to sign up as a excutive or senior distrubutor starting with $1,200.00 or more and they continue to do the same for the next few months, until you realised you are being scam by these people from guranteen

Now its time to ask for your money back and this is their answer you have 30 days to ask for a refund, think about this, could anyone make money in their first 30 days (one month) doing any kind of business, when they invested for 3 months almost $6,000.00. This is what false advertisment is and a way to rob those that are innocent to this kind of money making business.

#2 Consumer Comment

3/27/05 4 AM Don LaPre individuals may make MORE money

AUTHOR: Cory - (U.S.A.)

Woke up this morning at 4am and who do I see on tv but Don Lapre on the local NBC station. A 30 informercial about the world's greatest vitamins. Almost nothing about the vitamins themselves. On and on, all these different people saying how they make $100 per hour, $300 per hour, $3000 in 2 weeks, $12000 in 6 weeks. The funny part is that in every other commerical I've ever seen, the fine print says, this may not reflect actual results. In this one it says, individuals may make MORE money. All this money can be yours for the low price of .....$35. Now I wonder, who in their right mind is going to believe that? But, by the number of posts on this site there are a few or more who did believe just that. Nothing comes easy in life, except losing your money. It's a whole lot harder holding on to it.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

There's no false advertisement !!

AUTHOR: Furst - (U.S.A.)

The assertion that Lapre is using false and misleading ads is rediculous. The reason for my response is simple. The FCC, the Arizona States Attorney and other Federal, State and local law enforcement would shut him down.

And frankly, If I don't put a response in, then Mohanie of Jersey City, New Jersey's comments that the Greatest Vitamin Program is a scamm (mispelled on purpose so it won't be picked up by the search engine)go unchallenged.

Mohanie's post does thwart people away from earning $1,000 or maybe more, within the next year, on a $35 investment.

My 1099 income tax earnings from them was 14,400...not a million....but some extra play money. All on a $35 investment.

I didn't by anything else!!!

So what steps do you follow to earn the first $1,000?

1. Go to the net and in your favorite search engine, type Trainer or Training, wealth, and the name of the program. (This is for anything on the net)

2. If you want Lapre's program, join a Top Trainer and ONLY pay the $35 for the kit. DON'T BUY ANYTHING ELSE! Only spend the $35! If someone calls you and wants to sell you a bumch of marketing tools, politely say, "No Thank you!" This goes for any business you get into!

3. Buy a domain name, it should have a part of the name in it. Example: or these are examples, not real domains. You can purchase domain names for $6.95 - $9.95 almost anywhere on the net.

4. Most trainers have free web space to get you started or you can "point the domain" to the product site.

5. Getting on the search engines, is a good "free" listing site that the search engines spider everyday.

6. Then get a IRS 1099 form from the company, fill it out and send it in. This stops delays in getting your first check.

7. Join other affiliate programs on the net.

8. Using the above formula, will get traffic to your Business. It gets people that want to buy the product, no Active Selling involved. You use Lapre's marketing efforts to make yourself money.

9. This can be done with any affiliate program. Your plan is to earn at least $1,000 per year per affiliate plan. If offers an affilate program, join it. Tax season is coming up, find an affilate plan on "reducing taxes".

In closing, don't expect to make a ton of money on $35 investments, and don't plan on making it fast. Most Income Plans work when you have a plan or someone to train isn't having the trainee buy a bunch of marketing materials. It's developing a plan, that is easy to do.

So be smart, work hard and don't think it's a rip-off when it doesn't work for you......just ask for your money back. And NEVER buy the extras!!!
