AMWAY is the mother of all pyramid scams, which of course were made illegal, and since AMWAY and similar organizations have been under countless complaints and investigations. Right up until they started paying high ranking members of the GOP off. Capitalism is great isn't it?
MONTOURSVILLE, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 11/01/2004 -- A former high-level distributor for Amway/Quixtar has launched a whistle-blower website -- -- revealing the alleged close ties of the multi-level marketing industry to the National Republican Party and directly to the current administration.

A life-long conservative, Scheibeler details GOP donations and corporate promotion that have allegedly resulted in political protection and benefits for the MLM industry. An audiotape of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich promoting Amway at a large Amway meeting is included on the site. The site details public speaking fees to Gingrich in the $50,000 range. Gingrich arranged a reported last-minute modification in a comprehensive tax bill that allegedly provided a $283 million tax break to just one company -- Amway.

Here's the understatement of the year...

"The GOP seems to have been hijacked by political payoffs from an industry that is rife with consumer deception, and bogus 'business opportunity' selling,"

First of all twitchy Amway was ruled not to be a pyramid scheme back in 1979.
Second I know a lot of people who make a damn good living through Amway and are truly happy they found it. Its not for everyone and many people fail when they make a go of it, but many people also succed and do quite well without ever signing anyone else up.

Yeah AMWAY is a great company...
In the book, Scheibeler exposes an Enron sized fraud with Amway raking In billions of dollars annually, and the billionaire founding families being the largest soft money contributors to the GOP, with funds that have been generated from what may turn out to be one of the largest consumer fraud scandals in history, perpetrated by the world's largest multi-level marketing company (MLM).
