Is Plexus a pyramid scheme or not?

Is Plexus a pyramid scheme?

There are several dozens of articles published that tell us what a pyramid scheme is.

According to the FBI.. 

"Pyramid Schemes

As in Ponzi schemes, the money collected from newer victims of the fraud is paid to earlier victims to provide a veneer of legitimacy. In pyramid schemes, however, the victims themselves are induced to recruit further victims through the payment of recruitment commissions.

More specifically, pyramid schemes—also referred to as franchise fraud or chain referral schemes—are marketing and investment frauds in which an individual is offered a distributorship or franchise to market a particular product. The real profit is earned, not by the sale of the product, but by the sale of new distributorships. Emphasis on selling franchises rather than the product eventually leads to a point where the supply of potential investors is exhausted and the pyramid collapses. At the heart of each pyramid scheme is typically a representation that new participants can recoup their original investments by inducing two or more prospects to make the same investment. Promoters fail to tell prospective participants that this is mathematically impossible for everyone to do, since some participants drop out, while others recoup their original investments and then drop out.""

According to an article from the FTC: 

""Here are some signs that the company is operating a pyramid scheme:
  • Your income is based mainly on the number of people you recruit, and the money those new recruits pay to join the company — not on the sales of products to consumers
  • You’re required to buy lots of inventory
  • You’re forced to buy other things you don’t want or need just to stay in good standing with the company

The U.S. Security and Exchange Commission says: 

"In the classic "pyramid" scheme, participants attempt to make money solely by recruiting new participants into the program. The hallmark of these schemes is the promise of sky-high returns in a short period of time for doing nothing other than handing over your money and getting others to do the same.

The fraudsters behind a pyramid scheme may go to great lengths to make the program look like a legitimate multi-level marketing program. But despite their claims to have legitimate products or services to sell, these fraudsters simply use money coming in from new recruits to pay off early stage investors. But eventually the pyramid will collapse. At some point the schemes get too big, the promoter cannot raise enough money from new investors to pay earlier investors, and many people lose their money."

What does the company publish, via Tarl Robinson:

How You Can Earn Big Sustainable Income With Plexus

Here’s an example of the earning power of the Plexus Comp Plan: If you had an organization where everyone sponsored three people all the way down, the numbers would look like this:

In this hypothetical example, if each person sponsors a minimum of 3 Ambassadors, your Pay Points would total 4,893. At the end of the month, if the Pay Points were $3.00, you would earn 4,893 points @ $3.00 = $14,679.00 from the Plexus Comp Plan.
If you trained and supported your people to bring in a minimum of 4 Ambassadors each, the numbers would look like this: you would earn 29,092 Pay Points @ $3.00 = $87,276 per month with the Plexus Comp Plan.
If you trained and supported your people to bring in a minimum of 5 Ambassadors each, the numbers would look like this: you would earn 121,400 Pay Points @ $3.00 = $364,200 per month with the Plexus Comp Plan.

Note: These are strictly hypothetical examples to show you the potential earning power of the Plexus Comp Plan. They are not a guarantee of income. 

What do you think Ambassadors are focusing on: 

Some words from the Canadians:

* Sarah B. is kicking butt this month!!!! Big high five on another sign up!!!

* Hello ladies!! I would like to welcome a new ambassador

* Hey Ladies!! I would like to introduce 2 new ambassadors!!!

* Would like to send out a HUGE CONGRATS to Melissa A. for goin silver today!!! Way to go Hun!!!

* I would like to welcome my first ambassador so I now have a team!!!!....MY MOTHER!!!

* I would like to welcome MaryAnn (my sister) on becoming an ambassador.

* Would like to send a HuGe CONGRATS to Stacey C for goin SiLvEr today!!!

* I would like to introduce Madison for Auddie to this awesome team!

* Would like to give a HuGe CONGATS to Auddie  for goin SILVER today!!!

Doesn't seem like they are focusing on selling products. Turns out.. NOBODY in Canada should have RECRUITED anyone. .lol..

No it is not just the Canadians that pat each others backs and brag about recruiting.

3. "Pyramid promotional scheme" means any plan or operation by which a participant gives consideration for the opportunity to receive compensation which is derived primarily from any person's introduction of other persons into participation in the plan or operation rather than from the sale of goods, services or intangible property by the participant or other persons introduced into the plan or operation.

  1. Nice website, it looks like Plexus is following in the footsteps of other MLM scams, such as Amway and Vemma. Read about the fundamentals of an MLM scam here:
    Amway has 2 major problems, as do most MLMs:
    1. The products are overpriced, which makes them almost impossible to sell to customers and results in Amway being an illegal pyramid, according to the FTC and SEC websites and previous court decisions, and
    2. The Tool Scam is hidden profit for the top level distributors only, and the vast majority of distributors operate at a net loss as a result. This is RICO fraud.
    Read about these and much more at and email if you want to help shut down Amway and other MLM scams.

    1. Yep 100% to number 1. I have a friend who sells this stuff. I go to the gym a lot. I have for years. I use nutritional products, protein products, and vitamins. Plexus' prices are WAY higher than almost anything Ive seen on the market. There's no way to justify those prices as theres nothing specifically different.

  2. "Without Overcharging, There Would be NO Compensation.

    There would be no feasible way to earn within an MLM if they didn’t overcharge for their products/services. Your best interest automatically has to be you “selling” people on overpriced junk most of the time, and sometimes unsafe, untested and unproven programs.

    AND more often than not, it has nothing to do with the actual product. You are selling people into a scheme so they can do the same to others. Most MLM’s have a fee to join. Most MLM’s require you to purchase the product. Most MLM’s have products that are vastly overpriced to support the compensation structure of the very program.

    Without overcharging for their products and without having fees or relying on recurring product orders (by the people within the program), an MLM would die out very quickly. Unlike legitimate sales models, they rarely rely on selling quality products at a good price to customers. They rely on selling people on the scheme fees so they can do so to others….and the endless chain continues until people wake up to what is really going on.

    It’s a P_R_M_D scheme."

  5. Shhh, your 'friends' at the you of the pyramid need you so they can ride off in their Lexus' to the airport and fly off to Hawaii

  6. LOL People think Plexus is not MLM or a Pyramid. If you have a person earning from the people they have recruited and on from there through each level it is MLM and it is shaped like a pyramid so it must be a pyramid, Right? How they became publicly traded is beyond me but you can be sure the company is running on investors money otherwise it would have collapsed already. I was involved in New Image years ago where I unfortunately learned all about MLM's and lost a lot of money. If a business expects you to sign up all of your family, friends, your doctor, your lawyer, LOL plus they want you to buy lots of inventory, Run away, Run away! Go to Plexus website and look at the opportunity and then scroll down until you see where it starts explaining Earn Plexus Points for each Ambassador (with 100 PV) on your team (up to 7 levels down), and receive a bonus on the number of Points you’ve earned. 7 levels, call it MLM but it is still a pyramid.
