  • Any opportunity that presents itself in such a way that recruitment is the main money maker is something to be wary of. With that being said, how could you actually make any money writing down licensed plates?? That just sounds ridiculous.

  • actually there is a legit company that does the license plates. and its not this one.. .. all you pay is for your website if you want to recruit... so its like any regular home business.. its just like me saying melaleuca is a scam but yet my friend makes about 2000 a month from them every month.. it just didnt work for me,..

  • there is a legit one, but thats not it, and they dont focuses on data entry they focus on products the data entry is a bonus, but we will see in time how that goes too.

    lately they have only been promoting other products like cell phones medical discounts etc...

    Mela didnt work for me either, my upline was in it, she made more moeny in 7 months with us than 2 years in Melaleuca.

    Its a tough business even for a top recruiter like her.

    She actually took he mela team with her to us lol

  • I actually saw this company on our local news here in Atlanta. They were having some convention and when Fox 5 asked them to show just ONE paying client, they couldn't produce a single name.

    That is a Pyramid Scheme, when they just recruit to recruit with no product or service being rendered. Alot of people get Pyramid and MLM confused(I was one).

    So basically Pyramid=NO product or Service and MLM-Serice/Product offered
    Another tip is to always ask for the name of the owner and the physical address NOT a PO Box for the company.

  • Thanks Christina, yes they were on the news, exactly! if there is no product,no service and all you get paid for is to recruit its a scam.
