Melaleuca's Russ Paley
Beware of Russ Paley from Melaleuca in Wooddbury. MLM fabrication, brainwashed hundreds of people

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!

Those comments about Russ Paley are complete BS. Firstly ,Melaleuca has been thoroughly vetted by the FTC and is not an MLM. Yes there is a backup order which is not a secret and can be changed quite easily.There is definitely a 90 day money back guarantee. This whole commentary is ridiculous.Check out Melaleuca for yourself instead of going by someone who is sour. Show me a business that requires peanuts for investment and can generate substantial income. I did Amway for 10 years and have made more in 10 months with Melaleuca than I made in ten years at Amway.

Melaleuca is MLM and the earnings are abysmal. And, reps falsely claim that it cures cancer. https://realscam.com/f9/melaleuca-scam-51/#post624

Remember the 190,000 Frank VanderSloot says got a paycheck in 2004?

The 190,000 paid grunts are grouped as follows=99.2%

Title/ annaul earnings /#of folks at level
Marketing Executive 1/$104/ 103,170
Marketing Executive 2/$222/ 28,500
Marketing Executive 3/$483/20,330
Director 1/$1778/28,500
Director 2/$5,349/5,130
Director 3/$9,990 /1,900
Director4/$15,374/722
Director 5/$23,777/342 The remaining.786% make a real living!

The numbers speak for themselves. There is no opportunity here. Frank Vandersloot is a slick goof that feeds folks all this nonsense about enhancing lives when the real story is how Frank is enhancing his own bottom line. Numbers don't lie, but the guys that set up these schemes can and do!

YOU
Level 1 5
Level 2 25
Level 3 125
Level 4 625
Level 5 3,125
Level 6 15,625 = 19530
----------------------
Level 7 78,125
Total business partners = 97,655

Think about how gargantuan the bottom layers are. Look at how few are on top. Is this really an honest and good way to make a living? Do you want to work for dishonest goofs like Frank? He said 20,000 of the 190,000 folks we have numbers for were making a living with this at the end of 2004. Only 5% exceed the $1778 average earnings per year. I count less than 3,000 making $15,000 and up! Where are the other 17,000+? So, unless they relocated to a third world country your Frank has a lot of explaining to do.
Think folks.....Think! Is this really an opportunity?????

The FTC does not vet businesses or business plans. What a load!
