Quixtar Strikes Again!

10

Oh man, I’m a bit on the angry side right now. I’ll keep this part short. I was at the office working on an advertising campaign for my mortgage job when this happened. I’d been there for a few hours after a full work day at the Blvd. My old roommate pops up on MSN and starts rambling about a business opportunity. I had no time for small talk, so I cut to the chase. The following is what ensued (note that my “bunshole” (pardon my French) comment didn’t go through because I lost my connection just at that moment, divine intervention perhaps?):

2/13/2007 5:35:04 PM Jeremy: hey tonight at 8:00 at the Abby inn there is a meeting for a buisiness that my wife and i are part of.

2/13/2007 5:35:28 PM Billy: what's it called?

2/13/2007 5:35:37 PM Jeremy: there is a lot of opportunity to make great money and learn some cool stuff

2/13/2007 5:35:45 PM Jeremy: Team Legacy

2/13/2007 5:36:42 PM Jeremy: it something good to look at. cause you dont know what you dont know.

2/13/2007 5:39:08 PM Billy: I don't know what it feels like to get rammed in the bunshole either

2/13/2007 5:40:03 PM Billy has been added to the conversation.

2/13/2007 5:51:51 PM Jeremy: Quixtar is the distribution hub.

2/13/2007 5:52:18 PM Billy: ah, I work with a few guys who have a J-O-B at the BLVD, just over broke!

2/13/2007 5:52:55 PM Jeremy: by knocking out the middle steps of distribution they save money and the saving are passed on.

Dude, I’m just glad you stuck it to him. I’m sorry, but anyone who was ever going to make money at Quixtar has already made it. Good for you.

Hehe, what a sad story; hopefully Jeremy takes your advice and gets out while he still can.

The thing I hate about businesses like that is that those in it have to talk about it ALL THE TIME. They become a nuisance while trying to recruit everyone and their dog. Aside from winning the lottery and inheritance there is no “quick” way to be rich.

And Mr. Park, you could have said “bum” you know. 😉

I agree Keb. I’m guessing that if I see Jeremy again, it will be all business. He’s a funny guy who usually jokes around a lot, well, this could throw all that out the window. I cleaned up the word for you since this doesn’t need to be dead on!

Yep, they lure people in with dreams of wealth and early retirement, but the only ones makng serious money are the ones selling the tapes and function tickets!

It’s too bad people are still getting sucked into this!

MLM plays on peoples desire of need for fast cash.

Yeh, I agree about the MLM hype and false promises of easy wealth. The only people who do make easy money are the ones who got in at the start, so that everyone becomes their downline, and the very few that make any profit above what they are spending on the overpriced products add to their rich uplines huge incomes, who are the only ones to really benefit. I speak from personal past experience, because most of my former friends are still working 9 to 5 as well as doing the headless chicken MLM system, and drive around in beaten up old cars with an “opportunity Advert” for their MLM in their rear car window.

I now run my own businesses and no longer work for the MLM millionaires.

Excerpt:

With a countless number of fraud schemes come just as many types of fraudsters. While terms such as swindler or scammer may bring a stereotypical image to mind, there are no set characteristics of someone promoting fraudulent investments. In fact, they may be typical acquaintances from work or church, family members, or close friends, and they may not even know the depth of what they are involved in.

“Ask yourself if you are interested solely because you know someone else involved,” Brother Romney said. “If this is the case, perhaps take a step back and really look into the background of the investment. No matter how trustworthy the source seems, potential investors should never make a decision based solely on the advice of others.”

Too bad he didn’t invite you to his house for a “party” to sell you his goods. You are too funny, Wild Bill…”I don’t know what it feels like to get rammed in the bunshole either”

I was laughing so hard that I was crying and everyone around me wanted to know what was so funny. Turns out, they didn’t think it was funny…but I think it’s funny.
