  • Herbalife Online Fraud: A Web Analyst's Perspective [View instapost]
    herbalife estafa site:mx 16,000 results
    herbalife estafa site:ar 5,050 results
    herbalife estafa site:co 14,100 results
    herbalife estafa 99,100 results

    estafa = fraud

    Curiously VZ had 0 results and Herbalife by itself only 2 ads.

    Took less than 5 minutes; perhaps using the wrong keyword?

  • Documents From Inside The Herbalife Cartel: How The Company Euthanized E-Tailers (Part 2 Of 2) [View article]
    Out of curiosity I checked eBay and Amazon; on both the shakes are available at shipped prices between $25 and $35.
    How does this compare to MSRP? Is it less than cost for the bottom level distributor (0.75*MSRP)?

    While no fan of this deal, I find it amazing that Comcast-TWC looks to be ok with the anti-trust folks and this is not.

  • Herbalife's Earnings A Case Study In Smoke And Mirrors [View article]
    I'm puzzled that this has not been posted before in these threads:

    “Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil!—
    Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
    Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted—
    On this home by Horror haunted—tell me truly, I implore—
    Is there—is there balm in Gilead?—tell me—tell me, I implore!”
    Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

    Knowing someone on his second year of free Sunday paper plus free digital, I suggest some of these numbers are inflated.

  • Herbalife To The FTC: Let Me Take A 'Selfie' [View article]
    It is frequently said that most people sign up as distributors only to get a discount for their own consumption, never intending to build up their own pyramid.

    Seems like introducing a new category, call it "member" or "consumer," with the same dues and requirements, except for recruiting others, would in one stroke eliminate the controversy.

    Members/consumers would concentrate on consuming and distributors on building up their pyramid, thus shutting up the doubters.

    The customer could then easily determine whether they just need the products, whether through the company or cheaper on eBay, or shoot for the Bentley/yacht/mansion. No position.
