Amway is a Global and secure business,but why do some people say its a scam because they don't succeed in it?

Report as

I don't believe it's a scam. It just takes a lot of time and effort to get good results. I had a friend try selling on Amway and it didn't last long. They were too busy to really branch out their business to get better results.

The FTC did, however, find Amway "guilty of price-fixing and making exaggerated income claims";[10] the company was ordered to stop retail price fixing and allocating customers among distributors and was prohibited from misrepresenting the amount of profit, earnings or sales its distributors are likely to achieve with the business. Amway was ordered to accompany any such statements with the actual averages per distributor, pointing out that more than half of the distributors do not make any money, with the average distributor making less than $100 per month. The order was violated with a 1986 ad campaign, resulting in a $100,000 fine.[82][83]

So your opinion is bias in that your family's income is dependent on Amway. So what was the reason for your question? Just so you could argue with anyone that didn't agree with the last statement in your question? So you could then maybe persuade them to sign up for Amway through your parents?

It is considered a pyramid by some, the way to make more money is by getting others in.

Because it's run a lot like a pyramid skeem. So if the pyramid doesn't work, they don't get paid. If they don't get paid then they have failed to make a profit. Hence, they have failed altogether.

Didn't they change their name to something else because the name amway made people automatically think of pyramid scam?

This might be why people are skeptical.
