Its the old topic again~ Lampe Berger, the lamp that burns essential oils.. lol. Well it seems that my post in my old blog is getting a lot of attention from the internet. I received a reply from the author of the Anti Lampe Berger blog. The blog really contains a lot of information on Lampe Berger marketing plans. I’m not accusing that its a bad company or whatsoever, just their marketing plans. There’s a lot of arguements on Lampe Berger itself from its own members. Many of them who are newbies felt being scammed because they can’t find downlines. Its a MLM business, people who joined should have considered about it before joining. A net friend told me that his friend is being sued by his downline because his downline can’t find any downlines at all.
Why did I bring this up again? Few weeks ago my friend asked me to go for a business opportunities talk. Sounds fishy right? Whenever I heard about these talks, I’ll just reject it because it’ll just be some MLM business thingy. So after asking about the exact company for the talk for a few minutes, the answer revealed. Its LB again. Half a year ago my gf was brought into it, and now its my turn. The business is really growing fast. Now its in JB already. And so I did my part, reject reject and reject, and finally my friend gave up. The business is just like this, if you keep on forcing people to join, you’ll lose a friend. If not, friends always.. hehe..
Basically, you’ll need to pay RM2345 to join as a member or Franchisee. 2345.. what a great number to memorise. After you get 5 downlines, you’ll become Baron. Then after you have 3 Barons under you, you become Count. Most recruiters will ask you to pay up RM37,500 just to skip those steps and become Count immediately. Its RM37k, NO JOKE! Then you’ll become marquis.. duke… and arch duke.. zzz. A paragraph I took from antiLB blog here.

That’s the highest position of all where most of the members been DREAMING of. RM50 million of sales to get to this position. How many of them who succeeded getting this position? I think its less than 5. During CNY, there’s bunch of people trying to recruit members in my hometown which one of them is my friend. They were all in the Count position where they paid RM37,500 for it. Sick isn’t it? All of them are just around my age. Youngsters nowadays just want to get rich fast.. including myself actually.. lol. But my opinion is, it depends on how are you going to run the business. Maybe you’ll really get rich with all your efforts then, great work for you~ But for me, its just a NO NO…
Nice logo~! Should make a sticker and stick it at my car mirror.. lol
