I see nowhere in the FTC document where it states that Amway is required to label its products. There seems to be a truth in advertising problem with your claims. Ironic, eh?

I see YOU are calling me a liar. This, I believe, falls under the category of "personal attack", thus the A/M flag.

Given that the entire FTC notice I copied above pertains to a violation of the order mandating the company to provide the actual percentages in their promotions -- and, their failure to comply with that order -- I am force to wonder exactly what it is you read before blasting off your attack.

I suggest you read the FTC's notice again. The whole thing, this time.

Some highlights: "Amway violated the 1979 order by placing an advertisement in newspapers across the country that represented the earnings of distributors without the required disclosures. ... Amway violated the 1979 order by failing to include in its ad clear and conspicuous dis closures of the average earnings or sales of all distributors in any recent year or the percent of distributors who actually achieved the results claimed. ... Under the consent decree, Amway is prohibited from making claims about above-average distributor earnings or sales unless it makes the required disclosures about actual earnings or sales."

How much money do YOU make via Amway?

What percentile are you in?

What is your relationship to the company?

Time for you to put up or shut up.

I still see nowhere where, in the FTC document, it "requires Amway to label its products with the message that 54% of Amway recruits make nothing and the rest earn on average $65 a month." Sources please.
