I thought this was something I could do and make some additional income with the hopes that some day I could retire with residual income...but here is my take on ACN. It costs you $500 which you can right off but it gone after you sign up.

I signed up to find out that they don't show all the fees associated with Phone products so my $69 phone ended up costing me $113/month and they also have additional contract terms outside of the Service you signed up with. Your supposed to read the fine print, not make the ACN software correct...so I'm supposed to sign up my friends and family knowning in the back of my mind I would be screwing them over. I called after finding out the additional charges on my phone and they were aware the software needed to be updated yet 6 months later its still not corrected...they don't care! I notified our local Representative also and nothing was ever done to correct the software I was paying $30 a month.

So total to this point is $500 to sign up, $30 a month for there tracking software you must sign up & $113 a month for the phone...total $643 I really didn't have. I went to the meeting, had meetings at my house...they are constantly being pushy about getting more of your friends signed up. They give you the excuse that with PG&E it will bring costs down yet I don't see any of what I was told to be true. Just think your scoring a whole 1/4% for the first 4 levels so guess who gets all the money the people in the Management positions, were all just a bunch of suckers.

I barely made it to the second level and never received any income because you don't get anything until the 3rd level which by then all your friends will hate you for suckering them in on this bogus system called ACN. Believe me I was all pumped up and thought this was something anyone could do but its just another SCAM.

There is a guy out of Las Vegas that is running an ACN business. He's a convicted murderer out on parole.

He's a scam artist who has also been convicted for fraud and forgery. I wouldn't give him my information for anything.

I agree Pierre. I love ACN and have never blamed ACN fr any business short comings.

I have been an IBO for awhile and I also maxed out my ETT bonus the third month in ACN. I worked for it no doubt, but I had great upline support, desire and a no quit attitude.

ACN is based on recruiting. The residual income is tiny compared to the what and IBO makes with the CAB (customer acquisition bonus) and getting their downline to do the same.

That is fact. I love how ACN reps simply say people are lazy or don'r want to work for it if they complain. Well, once you find out that the business is about recruiting and trying to level up to increase the CABs then you can't deny the "Pyramid" structure. This why they use somewhat deceptive scripts to get people to the meetings.

If they told the truth then nobody would sign up. DENY THAT!

I ordered some services from ACN. I wasn't going to save any money but a friend would make some money off of me instead of it just going to some faceless company.

They debited my account within 24 hours. 4 days later they informed me by email that they didn't offer the internet speed that I needed in my area. I cancelled my services. ACN's written contract says that refunds will be issued within 14 days.

I finally got the balance of my full refund yesterday, which was the 34th day. ACN's call center reps lied to me by blaming my banking institution for the hold up in one call only to admit that they hadn't generated the refund the next. I have demanded a letter of apology or I will take them to small claims court for not honoring their own written agreement.

This company doesn't seem to realize the damage that poor customer service does to a company. I would have happily signed up somewhere down the road when they had the service that I needed, again to give my friend some business .

Now, not only will I never deal with this company but I will also tell everyone that I know, and my husband will tell everyone he knows, and my parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, coworkers, customers....

Think of it as a complaint pyramid. Instead of you making money off of the people in your "downline" I am going to create my own "downline" of people who will never use your company.

Thank you Trav, WEll SAID. Sounds like some people aren't even trying or are expecting miracles right off the bat.

Those who don't want to work at it, or possibly competitors are fueling this, and it is really low.

needs2stop, well if you failed so what, move on, running your own biz is not for you. There is a high number of people that succeed in direct selling, do some reliable research.

If only 3% of people make it the the top position so what, they deserve it.

It doesn't mean 97% fail. What about all the other thousands making average full time income and the tens of thousands that are earning some nice part time income???

The fundamental flaw of ACN's pyramid scheme is that eventually your downline and customers will quit or cancel or move or die, or any number of things. You'll take two steps forward and three steps back.

The residuals you are promised will never materialize and you'll toil away and waste countless dollars on meetings and silly pep rally seminars. In the end, you'll alienate your friends and family and waste your own time and money. Just save yourself the trouble. Don't get caught up in all the little slick sayings and cliches about sticking it to your boss and 9 to 5 job.

97% lose money. I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 30. If you can't guess it, then that means you'd lose in ACN. It was 14 btw.

I bet you lost. See, odds don't lie.

Kid - I have plenty of friends and a lot of them support my business. They are getting the same services they already had for either around the same price or lower.

Your invalid comment of ... over your family and friends is quite sad and ill informed. Maybe you were told to be rich or wealthy is wrong when you were younger?? Maybe you believe in slavery or making your boss wealthy?

It's all business but comments like that are like water off a ducks back to me. Unfortunately, for the weak in mind, they can be hurt by narrow minded comments like that

WHO IN THIS WORLD DOES NOT WANT TO MAKE MONEY??? BUT MOST PEOPLE, WITH SOME EXCEPTIONS LIKE ACN PEOPLE, WANT TO MAKE MONEY LEGITIMATELY AND WITHOUT USING OR SCAMMING OTHER PEOPLE ESPECIALLY FAMILIES AND FRIENDS!!!

SO YOU MEAN TO TELL US THAT YOU ALREADY SCAMMED THOSE WHO PAID %500 OR MORE AND WAS NOT ABLE TO MAKE IT WORK NOT BECAUSE OF LAZINESS, STUPIDITY, BEING A LOSER, ETC., WHICH YOU ACN PEOPLE ALWAYS INSULT OR NAME CALL WITH THOSE WHO WOKE UP FROM THE ACN NIGHTMARE AND WHO WERE NOT ABLE TO STOMACH ANYMORE DUPING OTHER PEOPLE JUST TO MAKE "MONEY", BUT BECAUSE THEY FOUND OUT WHAT A SCAM ACN REALLY IS AND WHAT EVIL PEOPLE MOST IF NOT ALL OF THOSE INVOLVED ARE. YOU CAN *** OUT PEOPLE WITHOUT THEM PAYING FIRST LIKE IF THIS WAS A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS YOU WILL HAVE SOME PROBATIONARY PERIOD OR JUST DEDUCT THE $500 FROM ANY BONUS OR COMMISSION ONE WILL EARN! ACN DON'T WANT TO DO THAT THOUGH SINCE THE $500 SIGNING FEE IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF THE SO CALLED BUSINESS AND NOT THE LOUSY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THEY HIDE BEHIND SO AS NOT TO BE CALLED A PYRAMID SCAM!

I DARE ACN AND YOU ACN RECRUITERS NOT TO RECRUIT ANYMORE, NOT ASK FOR ANY SIGNING FEE (AND OTHER MISCELLANEOUS OR USELESS FEES) OR MAYBE LOWER IT TO $10 MAXIMUM ,(YOU PEOPLE KEEP ON SAYING ANYWAY THAT YOU GET YOUR BONUSES, RESIDUAL INCOMES ETC FROM CUSTOMERS AND THE PRODUCTS.SERVICES ANYWAY AND NOT FROM THE RECRUITING/SIGNING FEES), AND NOT MAKE OR BRAINWASH PEOPLE TO ATTEND PEP RALLY CONVENTIONS AND MEETINGS COSTING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND JUST SELL YOUR PRODUCTS AND LET'S SEE IF ACN WILL STILL EXIST IN A YEAR!!! ACN = A *** NETWORK!!!

WHY DID THIS SITE ASTERISKED "***" OUT PEOPLE MEANING REMOVE PEOPLE? BUT TO ADD TO THIS POST--WHY ARE THERE SO MANY RECRUITS OR SALESMEN FOR SO FEW PRODUCTS, SOME OF WHICH WERE BEING ADVERTISED ALREADY BY THEIR OWN RESPECTIVE COMPANIES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE OUTDATED AND *** ACN VIDEOPHONE, IF THIS BUSINESS IS NOT JUST A RECRUITING SCAM?

A BUSINESS CAN REACH A LOT OF CUSTOMERS BY JUST ADVERTISING WHICH COSTS FAR LESS FOR ANY BUSINESS THAN IF THEY HAVE A LOT OF EMPLOYEES THEY PAY SALARIES OR BONUSES TO AND THEY DON'T EARN MONEY FROM (THAT IS IF THEY DON'T ASK FOR $500 SIGNING/HIRING/ RECRUITING AND ALL KIND OF FEES).
