This company remunerated its affiliate marketers by way of a down-line which resembled a pyramid type scheme and chose not to undertake any of the advertising itself, the 'distributors' will take care of all of that. The company is public, registered on the London stock exchange.

even in the company which I work for, middle management is remunerated based upon employee performance, senior management is paid based on middle managements performance, top tier management is paid based upon the performance of their entire down-line. Just because a company chooses to remunerate based on a pyramid type structure does not make it a scam.

what is the cost to get involved? what value can you add to the product to make sales? how competitive is the product/service relative to the competition? how much does it cost to acquire a customer? what is the cost to recruit someone to join your down-line? what is the cost to keep them working? what is the price paid by the company in return for doing this?


Worldventures is in 25 country's now with the plan to open Australia , Brazil and China in the following months . If they where after your/our money it was easy for them to say Enroll as many as you can all over the world, not waiting to enter countries the legal way. The Product is Dremtrips life , everyone wants to go for holidays, and the company is offering 5* holidays in 2-3* prices and nobody can beat those prices,Book your holiday and if you find it 1 euro cheaper we will return your money and send you for free . Book your flight/hotel etc , and if you find it cheaper elsewhere we give you back the 150% of the difference . Enroll now and the initial fee 200 Dollars will be in your account to use it for future holidays, plus the monthly fee will mature in a years time ie 600 dollars to book a holiday ,did this sound like a scum? So open your mind because , mind and parachutes must be open to work . Some will enjoy there holiday and some will make money out of it too , Jut look around you, the whole system we are living in, is a pyramid Scheme .

This is not realistic CBBB i can find you in google what ever you want , even quotes that KEO is the worst beer in the world . People using the product are happy , and those using the compensation plan even more . If you want to do something you will find a way , if not you will find an excuse.

During the period October 2011 to September 2012, 19.82% of all Independent Representatives (“IRs”) earned a
commission or override, while 80.18% did not. The average annual commission or override earnings of all IRs, including
those who did not earn a commission or override, was $190.15. The average annual commission or override earnings of
that group of IRs who earned a commission or override was $957.12, and the median was $40.00. The data presented in
the table above is based only on those IRs who earned a commission or override within the time period of October 2011
to September 2012

So if you are lucky you might take USD 1000, more likely $40, if you are one of the 20% who earned anything at all.

All legit because there is a product to sell, but if, as some reports say, the Travel is not always that much of a bargain, then
Rip-off (rather than Scam) might appear to be le mot Juste.

I don't want to talk about the business part this has to do only about the effort you are committed to put to make it work . But about the product , why is not a bargain . The company says that you can book a Dreamtrip and if you can find it even a dollar cheaper they will return your money and send you to the trip for free . So where is the rip-off on this .
