Not a scam if they are telling you to and training you to sale products for a profit. WARNING -you do have to use the product or become a product of the product is what they call it. But whatever group you are in or considering, I wouldn't stock up all of my savings in products because they might not sell quickly and never sell as quick as sponsors tell you. So be careful.
But MLM or network marketing is a great concept and really something that everyone should be a part of in one way or another.
HINT: Try the health care industry (and to sell health care products), you know with all the obese people in the country.
And network marketing should always be done in conjuction with other ways of making money in the same industry as a supplement for cash. Network marketing doesnt pay too well at first.
EXAMPLE: I joined a network marketing company in the w***** l*** field, then I went a got a part time job at a gym (to make income and to learn the industry and what people want and are attracted too and believing in today in that market. Then I wrote my own book on w***** l*** (its always easier to sell when you are the expert speaking to people)
And now I teach classes on w***** l***.

So the important part is MLM is real but it takes lots of work and you will have to at some point dedicate your life to whatever industry you choose if you are going to make it.
But it is legit, just pick the right industry that you wont mind staying in for the rest of your days. And pick a older stand alone, been around company. Unless you and a few friends are putting your heads together to start one of your own. My reason is that most new network marketing companies fail early on and members never make anything. Even though this is not as exciting pick a long term company.
And you cant get rich over night unless you are working everyday (best friends) with someone who has done what you want and are still doing it everyday and they really want to see you get there also.
Nothing is perfect, stick with it and no pain, no gain.
P.S. I have a book that will be finished this week on making $100,000 this year in network marketing.
Hope that helps you out a lot, call me if you need anything while in MLM or network marketing.

Why I added "The Whole Food Farmacy" to my businesses.
Testimonial from another network marketer ( Frances Richardson) that was a friend over a year before she tried the products ( Gano Excel). Now she is an affiliate. Ask her why? Its more about "Health" than "Wealth" folks!!
What good is "Wealth" if your health isn't up to par, you can't enjoy it!
