More than half a century of quantifiable evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that what has become popularly known as 'Multi-Level Marketing' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic, economic pseudo-science, and that the impressive-sounding made-up term 'MLM,' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigators, and associates, of various, copy-cat, major, and minor, ongoing organised crime groups (hiding behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a series of blame-the-victim closed-market swindles or pyramid scams (dressed up as 'legitimate direct selling income opportunites'), and related advance-fee frauds (dressed up as 'legitimate training and motivation, self-betterment, programs, recruitment leads, lead generation systems,' etc.).

- US 'Herbalife' victims who lost their time and money will get only a bit of their money back.
US federal trade regulators are currently posting a mountain of compensation cheques to around 350 000 US citizens who all wasted their time and money in the 'Amway' copy-cat blame-the-victim 'Direct Selling/MLM Income Opportunity' cultic racket known as 'Herbalife' which, for decades, has been hiding in plain sight behind effectively-unsaleable, pseudo-medical (wampum) products.
