I am curious, is yorhealth a scam?

My friend told me that this company is capable of having me earn big bucks. Apparently they sell health products. They sell weight loss products too and anything and anyone that sells these types of products has always been scamming people with the product. My friend told me that it was a legit company that will not rip me off. After doing some research i have discovered that many people have been scammed by them. Also, some of the answers here on yahoo answers that support yor products just seem to answer with the same answers and provide the same exact links. That seems suspicious.

My friend didn’t speak to me with the same tone and attitude that she uses to speak to me. She has already arranged a meeting with a member of the company for tomorrow and she has only told me about today. And to add to this suspicious activity, she called the company member at around 10:00 pm and managed to arrange a meeting for the next day. She wants to start a “team” for the company because this will really help the world. To me this sounded like a way for my friend to earn money by recruiting members and then the recruited will have to do the same in order to maintain their job. After some more research, it appeared that some people shared the information that the company does do this.

Also, I discovered that the company seems to target young college students because another one of my friends experienced the same thing with a really long email that one of his friends had sent him. The one who sent him the message was a college student. In fact, both of my friends are college students and so am I. According to some of my search through google, other people have said that they target young college students, especially minorities.

And they were previously investigated by FTC. All i know is that when that happens to a company, that company was doing its best to every penny of anyone who joins it.

So i want to know, is this sketchy company a scam?
I meant to say on the second to last sentence “its best to [take] every penny”

    I have never heard of that company, but your description makes it sound like one of many network marketing companies that distribute vitamins. (I am a distributor for one)

    In network marketing, it is better to sell a consumable (re-orders) product rather than a service (pre-paid legal is probably the best of the service network marketing companies), so your friend has one point for his side.

    MANY network marketing companies hit the market every year. As with most businesses, most of them go out of business in the first five years – so don’t go for the hype of “Get in on the ground floor!” If it’s a good company, then ANYBODY can get in years after it started and make more money than the first guys. So make sure it’s not NEW!

    Many network marketing companies go out of business because the guys who started it got out of it what they wanted (their fortune, not yours) and take the money and run. Only join a company that is publicly traded on the stock market – their books have to be open for investors, so people can see where the money goes, and how solvent the company is.

    There are roughly a bazillion vitamin companies in the world, of which many are in the USA, and gobs (that’s a technical term) of them are in network marketing. Most are produced to the standard of quality of assembling a dung heap. Never know how variable one pill is to the next, what is really in them and even IF they will dissolve in your stomach. Only TAKE vitamins that are safe. Ask what proof they have. NSF international tests vitamins, as does the FDA (for companies that voluntarily submit to the higher standards of the pharmaceutical industry – that’s only about three companies in the USA).

    Ask if they MAKE their own products – the better companies do. This is to actually have control over what goes into the tablets. Most outsource this step and the final product reflects it.

    Make certain that income for the distributors is generated NOT by recruiting, but by actual product flow within your team. Getting paid for actual products that are sold is what makes this system legal. If people are paid for recruiting – and no products actually need to be sold – then it is an illegal pyramid scheme (yes, that’s the definition)

    Your friend gets paid if you join. You will be asked to pay either $390 or $515 upfront for “training and fees”. Then your job will be to sell vitamins and diet products. You will also get paid for recruiting new members. Since the vitamins can be purchased cheaper at a drugstore, you end up spending all your time recruiting. But the only ones making money are the owners who got your $390 before you made a penny. It is all a huge waste of time.
