There is this new company called World Ventures of which is rapidly growing within the nation and even outside the US. It’s main product (or at least a feature that they advertise) is a system of cheaper travel. Though this sounds interesting, these discounts on travel are typically LESS than what is offered with already stable companies such as Travelocity and companies alike. This brings up the new issue…
What the real concern though, is that it’s goal is to lure people in (mainly college and high school kids with either little to no income and little money to start with) and propose an idea to make money. This idea basically goes like this:
You join in by paying $280 for their services (the cheaper way of travel and vacationing), and every month there is a service fee of (i think) around $60. But that isn’t all… if you get 4 people to join WoldVentures under your name (your branching tree) they will completely remove that 60 dollar monthly fee and make up about $200 you spent. And as the tree continues to branch, you begin making more money and getting more benefits such as their BMW plan. So it appears that there is a way for some significant earnings.
If you haven’t been to any of their meetings (which are bombarding many college towns), they will throw a bunch of numbers at you to heighten their reputation and show their complete potential. They hire very convince spokesmen to do their bidding.
After some thought, you begin to think that this is a “Pyramid Scheme” - and I have looked it up and found that this company does their things in a very legal fashion. They offer a product to the people who sign up making it all too legal. IN REALITY (from what i have experienced and gone through) that this company has found an absolute way around the common pyramid scheme to make it legal.
If you have not been subjected to these propaganda-ish messages provided from this company, I would like everyone to understand essentially what they would be getting themselves into… When you get into this, you will instantly feel pressured to get your first 4 people to join to remove the monthly costs and try to make up some of the money that you lost investing in this company. Once you do that, Your friends and family (who will be your first targets) will feel the same way… and it will branch off exactly like the pyramid scheme. I now understand their views and it is an interesting way to make some money, but morally, i cannot say that I complete agree with what they are doing because in the end, as the company grows, more and more people will be (scammed?) out of their money. SOMEBODY WILL ALWAYS LOSE.
Yes, you do have some potential for making some side cash, but ethically, it just doesn’t seem right. I wish I had someone to tell me this before i got lured into it, but I am a sucker for making money and act impulse like many people.
enjoy your day and hope that you wont have to make these decision in which could possibly get you caught up in a twisted situation.
