Hi, if anyone wants to join the program e-mail me your e-mail address. This is the paypal one where you send £3 to the person at the top of the list, send the program details to other people and the money comes flooding in!! This is completely legal, and you are under no obligation to join if you want the details

Um, this sort of thing is entirely illegal.

illegal and stupid

NotQuiteCockney Sun 22-May-05 20:58:53

Ok, weird, apparently this isn't illegal in the UK. Just really stupid.

NotQuiteCockney Sun 22-May-05 20:59:53

Twiglett, I thought it was illegal, and went looking for proof, and on a DTI website found:

Women Empowering Women does not appear to contravene current UK legislation on pyramid schemes or multi level marketing because it does not involve any trading of products or services nor any form of company structure or control.

Ok, this isn't Women Empowering Women (which is worse, as it involves larger sums), but it's the same principle, right?

WEW is a terrible MLM rip off, imo most mlm is.

darlingbud Sun 22-May-05 21:27:28

what a crock of shoe shiner!! please don't go there anyone.

NotQuiteCockney Sun 22-May-05 22:13:56

WEW isn't even MLM, as there's no product to market. It's just a pyramid scheme, and a nasty one at that.

I really hate MLM of any form, my parents are complete idiots about these things and have been suckered over and over. It's frustrating to watch otherwise intelligent people turn into blithering idiots over money.

Can I join if I have no friends?

happy1 Mon 23-May-05 13:25:43

This is nothing to do with WEW(WHATEVER THAT IS) and it is not illegal. It works, The person who got me into it is a friend and they have just over £2000 so far.
You don't need to send it to friends.
