Person Keeps Getting Calls From An MLM Even Though They Don’t Work There

Multi-level marketing companies are essentially disguised pyramid schemes.

While MLMs are not illegal in the same way that pyramid schemes are, they are a way to avoid the law, and MLMs fall into a legal grey area. An MLM differs from a pyramid scheme in that it usually provides some kind of product or service. Most of the time, however, it is just an excuse to recruit more people and build a large downline. That is the only way people who are involved in MLMs can make any money. Even so, it is usually not much, and you would be much better off working a minimum-wage job. MLMs, on the other hand, are great at luring people in with big promises that never come true.

As a result, it’s no surprise that the only way they can hire new employees is to trick them into thinking it’s a different job. I’m embarrassed to admit that I once went to an interview and didn’t realise it was an MLM until later, and thankfully I didn’t fall for the scam. This person had the same thought process, so despite being ‘hired,’ they declined the position. The manager, on the other hand, didn’t get the memo and called them every Monday or every other day because they weren’t coming in. I’m not sure how broken the chain of command must be in this company for the manager to miss the hint every time.

I didn’t think that this sort of thing happened but here we are.

This person was lied to by the people at this company and told something else entirely when it came to the offered position.

So when they realized, it was essentially a scam, they declined the position and accepted another job offer.

This was the end of things until they got a call the next Monday.

Apparently, the manager thought this was their new employee.

It was quickly cleared however and you would think that would be it.

But surprisingly the calls kept coming until they were finally ‘fired’ for absences.

I am glad that this person figured out the truth early on.

I also wonder why they aren’t shut down because they prey on individuals who are in dire need.

Apparently, a lot of people have been scammed like this.

This is clearly the only way they can get new suckers in.

It is sad to see how many people get sucked in with false promises.

They apparently needed a reminder three times before they went away.

It is usually not so easy to get them off your back.
