The people that are leaving reviews don't know how to spell and they are not giving enough information where an intelligent person can ascertain whether they have actually had a legitimate experience with ACN. For one, ACN markets products that people are already using from companies that are already out there. They market services for people to use Verizon, flash, vivint, xoom, Dish, Direct TV and etc. These are legitimate companies that you can sign up with without going through ACN.
These complaints are acting like ACN is the company that gave them the phone or started the service. You sign up for the services through ACN and the rep receives a small portion of your monthly bills every month for offering the service to you. You are already using the services anyway. Stay away from websites that focus on bashing only one company.
ACN is not a scam. It is a legitimate marketing company. Before you can call something a scam, you have to know what a scam is. Most people compare multi level business to pyramid schemes.
They don't know the true definition of a pyramid scheme. In a pyramid scheme, an organization compels individuals who wish to join to make a payment. In exchange, the organization promises its new members a share of the money taken from every additional member that they recruit. The directors of the organization (those at the top of the pyramid) also receive a share of these payments.
For the directors, the scheme is potentially lucrative—whether or not they do any work, the organization's membership has a strong incentive to continue recruiting and funneling money to the top of the pyramid. Such organizations seldom involve sales of products or services with value. Without creating any goods or services, the only revenue streams for the scheme are recruiting more members or soliciting more money from current members. The behavior of pyramid schemes follows the mathematics concerning exponential growth quite closely.
Each level of the pyramid is much larger than the one before it. For a pyramid scheme to make money for everyone who enrolls in it, it would have to expand indefinitely. This is not possible because the population of Earth is finite. When the scheme inevitably runs out of new recruits, lacking other sources of revenue, it collapses.
Because in a geometric series, the biggest terms are at the end, most people will be in the lower levels of the pyramid (and indeed the bottom level is always the biggest single layer). In a pyramid scheme, people in the upper layers typically profit while people in the lower layers typically lose money. Since at any given time, most of the members in the scheme are at the bottom, most participants in a pyramid scheme will not make any money. In particular, when the scheme collapses, most members will be in the bottom layers and thus will not have any opportunity to profit from the scheme, yet they will have paid to join the scheme.
Therefore, a pyramid scheme is characterized by a few people (including the creators of the scheme) making large amounts of money, while most who join the scheme lose money. For this reason, they are considered scams. Notice how ACN offers services that people use every day. ACN representatives make money off of the people using the services that they marketed to.
ACN reps can make money without recruiting people. They can just accumulate a large customer base. The reps make more money when they recruit. This is the reason why this is not a scam or pyramid scheme.
ACN offers legitimate services to people. They are not just funneling money.
Reason of review: Good customer service.
