I ordered Online Business System special intro price to try for 14 days @ $9.95...received a very generic brochure that didn't give any info about the company..just kept stating that tons of money could be made, if you are teachable.....4 days later had a conference call (from a confused "new-be" that recently paid out the $) who informed me of an additional $39.95 would be charged for the generic brochure & they require $399 to invest in the company...The initial statement was no further money/investment required!!!! Now I have to spend money to send back the generic flyer-within 14 days or I will get charged $39.95! I requested my $9.95 back, but they're saying I can't get it back...due to it being for the trial brochure (which tells you nothing at all!!!!) What a fricken scam! That's how they're all making their 6 figure incomes!

  • I ordered the same package but had a completely different experience. I knew that the up front cost was $9.95 and was non-refundable, I also knew that there would be a charge of $39.95 after the 15 day trial - it said so right in the Terms and Conditions. As for the booklet, I did find it very generic but by reading between the lines I got a good sense of what the business was, and it also said "Business Method presented is an online method of operating an Herbalife International ® independent distributorship." at the bottom of the initial page so knew even more by that. The trick is to read. By speaking with my "coach", I found out all the other information (costs, tools, training, etc) by listening and asking questions. The key is an open mind and the willingness to find out what you need to. I was impressed by the system as a whole and am still interested in it.

    I am an advocate for MLM businesses as I believe the business model works, however it takes the right person to make it. Not everyone will be successful, as a matter of fact the percentage is very low, however those that do succeed make it big. These people do not make money by charging a very small fee for their packages, they make it by helping others create and grow a business of their own. Herbalife has been around since 1980, and Online Business for the past decade so both are not "fly by night" companies. Good history and solid business model sounds pretty good to me.
