Complaint / review text:
Russ Paley is the author of a book entitled Network Your Way to Millions. When I read his book and learned he was living nearby, I took a chance and signed up for the company he represents which is known in MLM circles as Melaleuca.
Russ told me that I should tell everyone I know that I just met a guy who has made millions with a business you can run from home in your spare time. He told me to have them come to his home and he would do the pitch. He never mentioned backup orders or how the costs increased as you moved through the program.
Initially, I was excited to work with Russ, as I thought he was being truthful with me. When I saw his home and his Mercedes, and the historical documentation of his success with Melaleuca, it never dawned on me that deception and leaving out vital information was a key factor in his success.
My closest friends and family signed up after hearing Russ' presentation. A few months later, when they were being charged automatically, all hell broke loose. Nobody every authorized backup orders, yet Russ signed them up anyway. Not only did he do this, but he neglected to tell me that the cost of keeping the business going increases from 50 to 109 per month once you get to director level.
The last straw with me was a blatant lie Russ told me about their being a 3 month, no risk, cancellation policy. My own brother attempted to get this policy honored and it turned out to be a complete fabrication on the part of Mr. Paley. Russ Paley can not be trusted. He has brainwashed hundreds of people based on his success with Melaleuca, but you must wonder at who's expense was his success based. Beware!
