Should Herbalife worry about this?

The SEC halts a pyramid scheme that targets Asians and Latinos. Three entities posing as multi-level marketing firms selling cloud computing services allegedly bilked consumers out of $65M since March of last year.

    Obviously it should. Or perhaps not - if you take a Zen approach towards that which is inevitable and you realize that worrying is useless. Simple: The days of the MLM business are counted.

    SEC & FTC have shut-down some illegal MLM's since Ackman's attack on HLF.


    HLF is a legal MLM. Operating within the laws and providing a good service to the people that want their products.

    “In reality, they were operating a pyramid scheme that preyed on investors in particular ethnic communities, leaving them with nothing left to show for their investment.” Sounds familiar.

    The Title is Incorrect. The SEC did NOT halt a pyramid scheme but a Ponzi scheme in which the victims were promised a 100% return on their money in 100 days, in which the early participants received funds from the later. A 100% return in 100 days would collapse very quickly. There is NOTHING in common with Herbalife, which has NO characteristics of a Ponzi scheme. Doesn't anybody read the reports?

    Why should HLF care about this? They don't sell cloud computing.
