Looking For USANA Scam? Find Out How Some People Are Making Multiple 6 figure Income

Usana Scam…? NO… Check this out

It still surprises me how many people think USANA is a scam. Well if you are asking that question too, you are not alone. Well before I go on, let me just say that I am not in any way affiliated with this company. I am not a distributor for the company. However, I can emphatically tell you that USANA is not a scam. This company is nothing more than a medium for regular people like you and me to be financially free. There are few reasons why I know that they are legit and I will talk a little about those that are them a scam and why.

As earlier mentioned, USANA is nothing more than a medium. This company promote nutritional product like Mega AO w/out Vitamin K, Mega Antioxidant, HealthPak™ and many more products like these. They also promote diet and energy products as well as personal care products. I am not here to lecture you about the products. A proof that USANA scam claims are false is the fact that there are exchanges of goods from hands to hands. When you see companies out there claiming that you can receive money in the mail by mailing money out, run away from those. There are no products or services involve in that. This company clearly does not belong in that category.

When the compensation plan of any MLM company is geared towards rewarding recruiting, then that is a bad sign. I am not saying that this necessarily makes a company a scam. But it definitely put them on the federal government’s watch list. And I can tell you that they are very sensitive to scams. But USANA compensations are generated from the sales of these products. Even when you recruit, you get paid when the newly sponsor reps purchased the products or get on the autoship. This is another proof that USANA is not a scam.

Why some people are calling USANA scam.

For the most part, the people calling USANA scam are the former distributors of the business that failed at a particular point in time. Of the many reasons why these people failed is because they refused to recognize that MLM is a business. It is true that the start up cost is cheap compared to starting a McDonald’s franchise. It is also true that you were introduced by your family and friends. But if you treat any MLM business as a hobby or some part time thing, you will fail at it.

Misleading FAILED distributors calls USANA scam

They are probably people who do not understand the way to build a huge organization with the business. In any MLM business, you have to build a big organization to make huge amount of money with the particular company. The idea that you will build a huge organization from family and friends is just insane to me personally. As a matter of fact, your family and friends will be the biggest skeptics that you will encounter. This is the reality that many in the MLM business do not understand. When the reality hit them, then they quit.

The No 1 secret to building a successful USANA business is figuring out how to generate MLM leads on the internet. Do not spend money on buying leads online. This is the first step to going broke in this business. MLM is people’s business. The faster you present your business to people, the quicker you will generate income. There are relatively easy ways you can generate leads in this age on the internet.

  1. I have to strongly disagree with your review. USANA operates a pyramid scheme. Their products are way over priced at the distributor’s cost. Since Preferred Customers can buy USANA product at the same price as distributors, this means there is no profit margin. This means that distributors are not able to resell the product at a higher price than their cost. So any profits to be made will be relied upon “commissions”.

    In order to be eligible for commission, the USANA associate is “required to personally purchase” over $100 worth of product every 28 days (13 times a year). Almost all the net revenue USANA makes comes from these required purchases.

    Now here is a quote from the Federal Trade Commission: http://www.mlmpyramid.com/FTC_Letter.pdf

    QUOTE
    … a multi-level compensation system funded primarily by payments made
    for the right to participate in the venture is an illegal pyramid scheme.

    … Modern pyramid schemes generally do not blatantly base commissions on the outright payment of fees, but instead try to disguise these payments to appear as if they are based on the sale of goods or services. The most common means employed to achieve this goal is to require a certain level of monthly purchases to qualify for commissions.
    UNQUOTE

    No matter how hard USANA’s associates “work the system”, the compensation plan is mathematically fixed so over 90% of current participants lose money. Over time, more than 99% of all associates ever joined will have lost money.

    If you want to learn more about the dangers of USANA and many of USANA’s questionable activities, visit my blog at http://www.usanawatchdog.blogspot.com

  2. Usana has made some of my friends rich but they are at the very top of the pyramid. So in essence..it is a scam.

    People who joined (including some family members) have to pay a start up cost + they have to buy products every month. So basically, if you can’t sell the product you are stuck at a lost. Remember…as a Usana employee

    1) You have to keep buying Usana’s product every month. Costs hundreds of dollars.

    2) You have to recruit people to join. If you don’t then they will tell you that you are not succeedding. You have to con your friends, family, strangers to attend these “training” seminars which is essentially where they brain wash you.

    For those of you looking to join…look at the people they recruit. They are usually young people because young people are easy to manipulate.

    Please stay away from Usana. Yes, some people do get rich but they end up ripping off their friends, family, and manipulating young kids.

    I actually walked into a house training before since my cousin was in it and they do “chants” like its a cult. It’s crazy…

    James,

    How did you get the job.. ? What? U were recruited? I rest my case.

    I suggest you become a constant visitor to this website to redeem and educate your self.
    YOU TOTALLY missed the point of the article.

    You have a very warped view about how businesses operate. Companies have a structure where everyone has a specific task to fulfill. Some tasks are more difficult than others and require skill to perform those duties. Those qualified employees DESERVE to be paid more than other employees doing a less skilled task. The biggest flaw if your argument is the fact that you forget to mention all 100% of company employees make AT LEAST minimum wage. Most employees make more than minimum wage.

    However, according to the MLM company USANA, two thirds of USANA distributors have never received a single commission check. It can be deduced from USANA’s distributor earnings states and the distributor lists I have datamined and compiled over the years and have on my website reveal that 99% of USANA distributors have never made a profit.

    Another problem with your argument is the fact that you don’t understand the difference between a human resource department in a legitimate company and a snakeoil salesman in a MLM company. Employees in companies are not “Recruited” into a company. They are “Hired”. It is comical that according to USANA, distributors are their own CEO. So when these CEO distributors go out and recruit more distributors, they are simply recruiting more CEOs. What kind of legitimate company actively recruits or hires an endless chain of CEOs?

    A USANA distributor who joined yesterday have the same duties and tasks to perform as those who had joined 18 years ago. There is no promotion based on skill. Promotion is based on the amount of Group Sales Volume (GSV) which primarily comes from recruiting more distributors. Everyone’s primary function is to recruit people into the pyramid scheme instead of actually retailing product.

    Now it’s my turn to use an analogy. This will help people truly understand how flawed MLM opportunities are. If Burger King restaurants operated like MLM distributors, the following would take place. There would be a Burger King on every street corner. Instead of selling a basic hamburger for about $3.00, these Burger Kings would be trying to sell the same basic hamburger for $9.00. There would only be one employee at this Burger King, the MLM Distributor. People that come into these Burger Kings gasp at the high prices and start to walk out. The owner of the Burger King stops them at the door and tells them that their hamburgers are made according to Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices and contain 100% of the described ingredients listed on the menu. Oh, and these hamburgers contain exotic herbs from a secret far away place that help kill cancer cells (Ladd McNamara made a similar claim about USANA’s grape seed extract, and I have it on a audio recording of him saying it during a live presentation).

    Now the Burger King distributor stops trying to sell hamburgers to their customers and instead tries to sell them a business opportunity to have their own Burger King on the street corner next to them. Some customers buy into the sales pitch and purchase their own Burger King. These new Burger King Owners join not realizing they are required to pay a monthly fee to participate (USANA’s 100 Personal Sales Volume requirement every 28 days, 13 times a year). The first few months these new Burger King owners only sell 1 or 2 hamburgers even though they had hundreds of people come into the restaurant. Most all patrons who visit the Burger King never again revisit another Burger King for the rest of their lives. Most of the new Burger King owners realize they will never make a profit due to the flawed MLM business model, and close down their Burger King. About 80% of these new Burger King owners close down within the first year.

    Most of the Burger Kings that remain in business do so at a continuing loss. They learn that the only possible way to make any money in this flawed business model is to spend 100% of their time trying to convince patrons to start their own Burger King Restaurants. Since all of these Burger Kings have to pay a monthly fee to participate, and these fees actually pay commission to the earlier Burger King owners, it would seem that if you can recruit enough people into starting their own Burger Kings, that eventually you would start making more in commission than you are required to pay in fees.

    So what happens to all these unsold hamburgers? Well, the owner wouldn’t want them to go to waste. So the owner eats them. If you are going to pay $9.00 for a hamburger, you better like it. Wait, didn’t you say that the hamburgers were being sold for $9.00? Yes. So why is the Burger King owner paying $9.00 for the hamburger? Because the price is so high they are unable to be marked up for a profit (You can’t mark up something that nobody wants). Some of these Burger Kings accumulate absurd amounts of hamburgers to rise in the ranks and then turn around sell them on Ebay at half price; $4.50. Now, potential customers can at any time log onto Ebay and find these $9.00 hamburgers listed for only $4.50 so there is never any need to ever purchase a $9.00. Retailing the $9.00 hamburgers becomes a near impossible task.

    So much for this MLM Burger King business model. Any rationally thinking person can see how flawed this hypothetical Burger King model is, yet this is exactly what USANA and most all MLMs are doing. The system is designed to fail 99% of participating members in order for the top 1% to profit. The system is also designed to fund USANA with an enormous cash flow, which is then siphoned into USANA executives pockets through their Stock Repurchasing Program. What seems to be happening here is that USANA will repurchase company stock, and on those unannounced days the executives sell millions of dollars worth of stock back to the company. By doing this, the stock price does not fall ever though insiders are selling in huge amounts. A close look into USANA insider transactions and the daily stock performance shows many suspicions.

    This should be a long enough response. Have a good day!

  5. So where exactly did u find the info that USANA distributors are “required” to buy a certain amount each month? I can 100% say that is NOT the case. They may buy products for thermselves and in turn that will give them the “points” they need for the month but it is NOT required. Before you go on a speel about knowing the USANA business, please get your facts correct before you write a novel of a forum message to make it sound bad. Oh and another point, distributors ARE able to profit off sales made higher than what they can get for so looks like you are 0 for 2!
    And your whole analogy about BK is horrible, not getting recruited but hired LOL. How do most people find jobs? Ads, see hiring signs, maybe job fairs..guess what..RECRUITED by the company and then they are HIRED as same with USANA or MLM businesses. Paying a fee each month to keep the business open? what do u call BK’s bills each month for say: Electricity, gas, water, garbage, property tax, building cost, employees pay checks. I would say thats a pretty hefty “FEE” each month in order to keep that particular business open.

  6. Boostd8,

    Sorry for the late response, I have not checked this site for a while.

    Sorry, but it is stated in USANA’s Annual 10-K SEC filings:
    QUOTE
    Commissions:
    The primary way an Associate is compensated is through earning commissions. Associates earn commissions through generating sales volume points, which are a measure of the product sales of their down-line sales organization. Sales volume points are assigned to each of our products and comprise a certain percent of the product price in U.S. dollars. To be eligible to earn commissions, an Associate must purchase a certain amount of product each month (“Qualifying Purchases”), which they may resell to consumers or use personally. Associates do not earn commissions on these Qualifying Purchases. Associates only earn commissions on the purchase of products by Associates in their down-line organization and Preferred Customers.
    ENDQUOTE

    There you have it. An associate MUST PURCHASE a certain amount of product each month. Actually, it is every 4 weeks, which is 13 times a year – Not 12… And this certain amount is either 100 Volume Points or 200 Volume Points depending on whether you have a single Business Center or Multiple Business Centers. So that’s about $110 to $220 each cycle. So in other words, the associate must personally purchase at least $1430 worth of USANA product each year. This product doesn’t pay any commission to that distributor even if they resell it. And reselling it is pretty much impossible since Preferred Customers can get it for the same cost, and the product sells for half that amount on EBAY. In otherwords, there is NO profit margin.

    I suggest you learn actual facts about USANA and stop spreading false information, especially when the facts are not hard to find.

    Secondly, you wrote “And your whole analogy about BK is horrible, not getting recruited but hired LOL. How do most people find jobs? Ads, see hiring signs, maybe job fairs..guess what..RECRUITED by the company and then they are HIRED as same with USANA or MLM businesses. Paying a fee each month to keep the business open?”

    You are completely off base. Do you actually think USANA distributors are actually hired employees?? If so, then USANA distributors would at least be making minimum wage. Instead, most all of them are losing money.

    USANA distributors would be analogous to the franchise owner of a Burger King, not the hired employees working there. These USANA burger kings would have no employees. The USANA distributor aka Burger King franchise owner would be all by themselves running their business. But unlike real Burger Kings, these USANA distributors can’t find any customers to by their $9 hamburgers. So they go out and try to sell the idea of becoming rich and recruit uninformed victims as burger king owners for themselves. These new owners are forced to purchase hamburgers from the headquarters, which pays commission to the jerk who just recruited them, and all the jerks upline all the way to the top. Now this new person can’t find any customers, so they go out and recruit new owners…

    You wrote “what do u call BK’s bills each month for say: Electricity, gas, water, garbage, property tax, building cost, employees pay checks. I would say thats a pretty hefty “FEE” each month in order to keep that particular business open.”

    USANA tells distributors they can take advantage of tax deductions for a home based business. These deductions include Electricity, Water, Gas, Garbage, Property Tax, Building Cost, and Employees (like your children and spouse). And if that’s the case, then guess what? Those costs are being considered business expenses. However, there is one really really huge difference between a USANA Distributor and a Burger King owner: The Burger King owner has more than enough revenue to pay for those expenses and still walk away with a profit. 99% of all USANA distributors actually LOSE MONEY and never see a profit.

    Sorry, I have to disagree with EVERYTHING you write…

    Thanks for stopping by USANAWATCH. It is ok to disagree about eveything on this post. But we welcome all form of discussion. one thing that I can tell you though is that the fundamentals of any business has not chance. You have to lean how to generate leads and learn how to build to this least. This is just a fact for any business including USANA.
