Although the grinning 'Herbalife' and 'NuSkin' racketeers have copied their cultic blame-the-victim criminal activities from the grinning bosses of the 'Amway' mob, by also withholding key information from financial regulators, they have significantly raised the stakes in the already-outrageous 'MLM' bluff - fraudulently generating billions of dollars via their peddling millions of effectively-valueless shares in their essentially-identical, camouflaged criminal enterprises.
