31st of Aug, 2011 by User812982
I began receiving unsolicited emails saying I had joined an MLM, BodHD, with subsequent emails saying my "straight line" downline was growing. If you read the emails sequentially, the numbers do not rise sequence, but jump around, one day 100, one day 776, one day 71, done day 350, one day 77, one day 216.....obviously all bogus number, if a supposedly team was growing, it would grow sequentially! Made up numbers to try to "hook" someone into ordering products and "activating" their spot in the company. Using manipulative, fear base, take away marketing tactics to get people to join----if you don't join, you will lose all these people...... The final day I received an email before calling the company to inquire and complain, the email I got was alarming. It was a "what are you waiting for" that included a user name and password in my name. I saw red! It was requesting that I go to my sight to "upgrade" today. I never gave them my email. I investigated the site, they offer this "free" 30 day offer to join where your downline grows while you make the decision to actually purchase and activate you spot in the company. I phoned the company to find out where they had gotten my email and what website my "free" enrollment was processed under. They told me there was no way that their IT department could trace the enrollment site, which is not accurate, there would be a record, and swore they never email people without their permission. They told me they would remove me from the list and I received a confirmation email that I had been removed. Fast forward one month, I have a new email now asking me to confirm my BodHD subscription. It says click on this link to join......so people wondering what it is might click to check it out. It then reads below it, if you don't want to be on the list, do not click.... It claims that it is an email I gave permission to receive (keep in mind I was officially removed from the list 21 days before) and it claims there is an opt out option at the bottom of the email. At the bottom of the email is a link in the place where an opt out would be posted, that people probably quickly click without thoroughly reading, that reads : To receive future emails from BodHD, please click this link. The email is written deceptively to opt people into their system by using the links provided. I never click links due to viruses on the internet, when I did my research to find out who they are, I googled and entered their site from the main page and not this sign up link. Somewhere they are pfishing for emails............. I started to search, and saw that a friend had joined up with them and was part of their Facebook page. I began to wonder is they were using a pfishing device to scam friends of friends email addresses through social media channels. The timing of these emails that go out are month end/first of month. They keeps these message going for 30 days trying to lure people in and then supposedly flush their email from their system..... Clearly something does not add up and very deceptive business practices are in play. Network marketing done properly is a wonderful business opportunity for many people and it is truly sad to see they horrible practices in play. These are the types of practices that allow the founders and a select key group of corrupt people to profit quickly from the pre-launch and launch momentum and exit quickly with a fortune before the whole thing blow up!
People need to be very very careful of network marketing in the pre-launch, launch and first few years of the business. Many are scams, others are legitimate companies that do not possess the funding and the manufacturing ability to sustain the business when it experiences the exponential growth from the recruiting model. I hope this report will be investigated properly. I had a horrible feeling when I saw their site and recruiting methods, and an even worse feeling speaking with their staff............and now I'm receiving the unsolicited solicitation AGAIN! I wonder how many months they will continue to email me like clockwork? I wonder why these people that have been supposedly been so successful creating direct marketing companies don't stay at the companies they created..............if they were so successful, wouldn't they still be in existence and wouldn't they want to stay with that success and residual income for life? I would, but then I'm not a scam artist, I evaluate for honest, integrity and a solid business plan that will withstand the test of time. Thank you
