Two people from my high school tried to get me in on this multi-level marketing product called Verve, it's an energy drink and its supposed to be good (I don't like energy drinks, I'd rather have a coke) and its made by a company called Vemma. The whole thing smells like a pyramid scheme to me and I'm not giving them my money. One of them is my friend and I'm kind of offended that he asked me and the other one posts all about it on Facebook and has people over for what can best be described as a tupperware party but for energy drinks. The person in the ring above them lives in Hawaii and we live in Pennsylvania. It just doesn't seem right to me but I didn't say anything to them. But, they tried to rope in one of my good friends and me, another friend and his dad told him that it was a really bad idea.
More and more people from where I live are doing it, and I'm wondering is this happening in other parts of the US and world? Do you know anyone in one? (have they made money?) and have you ever been asked to join a similar "business opportunity"?
There's a Penn and Teller Bullsh*t episode called "easy money" for anyone interested or who wants to learn more.
