What To Do If You Become a Victim of Network Marketing Business (MLM) Scam/Pyramiding?

Let's say you have joined a network marketing business (MLM).

It was later discovered as scam or pyramiding. 

You face two decisions. Either to continue or not.
Victim of MLM Network Marketing Pyramiding Scam

If you are a PIONEERING member of that company, isn't it difficult to stop what you've started?

Isn't it difficult to stop the continuous flow of money in your pocket that you've earned from your group?

What if you're just a downline of a large group of uplines?

Isn't it also difficult to disprove your uplines' large earnings and your uplines' motivation to work, and the company's promises?

Then, here you go. You are now confuse on what to do.

Would you continue doing the scam MLM business even if it has been proven a real SCAM/PYRAMIDING?

These should be the things you should do if you become a victim of a Network Marketing Business (MLM) scam/pyramiding:

1.  Save your face by quitting the MLM scam. Keep your reputation and the respect of other people. 

Aren't you ashamed to face your friends, office mates, or church mates and here you are, you continue to promote the MLM scam?

What if they asked you, "Aren't you one of the MLM scam member?"

Especially if the MLM scam has been reported in TV, newspapers, magazines, or internet, you should save your face by quitting in this MLM scam right away.

2.  Report the pyramiding/ponzi MLM scam to the government authorities

It hurts so much if you've invested a lot of money and you never get back that investment in the pyramiding/ponzi MLM scam. So to protect yourself and many others, report the company/business to the government authorities:
  • Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)
  • Police Department
  • Media Organization specializing in Crime Investigation
  • Lawyer
The company or the operator of the scam will be forced to pay financial damages to you and to the other victims.

3.  Look for other business opportunities. In life, we cannot avoid mistakes.

An American investor and best-selling author Robert Kiyosaki said,

"In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.

If you failed, know where you went wrong.

Either create a better business or look for other business opportunities.

Study carefully those business opportunities you will encounter.

Never to lose hope if you fail again. Why?

That's part of the learning process.

4.  Look for other earning opportunities. God gives us plenty of resources here on earth.

Look around you, Look within yourself.

Plenty of earning opportunities can be found.

Decide for yourself on how to use those God-given resources (personal abilities or natural resources).

Each one of us has something special. You are good or best in a certain field:
  • sports
  • business
  • entertainment
  • music
  • food
  • arts
  • technology
  • real estate
  • etc...
Earn a living from your chosen field. And remember these things :
  • Study your chosen field in life. Each of us are created here on earth with a special purpose in life.
  • Create a unique or better product or service. People will find you if you have something special to offer.
  • Innovate/Develop yourself and your product/service. We are living in a very competitive world.
  • Build integrity or trust. Without this character, your business or company won't last long.
