Herbalife CEO Michael Johnson says he’s never heard anyone refer to HLF as a scam in the last ten years. Funny, but it seems the internet has heard such things. So much that Herbalife distributors write articles and produce videos that attempt to rank well in Google for the search phrase “herbalife scam.” If their pro-Herbalife  information is all that shows up when a potential distributor is searching for the truth about the company, the “negative” side will never be seen.

Thanks for this video, Salty Droid!

    Obviously, it’s not a scam. The only reason people 97% of people don’t make money is because they don’t do the work, duh.

    Blaming the victim is classic douchebaggery.

    I’d love to see these people’s legitimate earning statements/ tax returns to see how successful they really are with their “business.”

    Yeah, they mix up the causation. 99% of people don’t make money because the system is rigged against. them.

    when the HL CEO said this was the first time he’d heard “HL is a scam” in his 10 year tenure, I had to laugh out loud. Either he’s clueless or lying. Either way, do you want to invest either time or money in such a company? There are so many better options out there!

    It is a scam for sure, but it is a protected scam becuase the government won’t touch HLF. Is Ackman’s presentation an inflection point against MLM, or is it a cause for a short squeeze? I’ll go with the latter since the DOJ has no balls.

  5. […] Despite the fact that CEO Michael Johnson claims he’s never heard of Herbalife being referred …, there are plenty of people who will tell you different. This documentary is a very, very good piece and well worth the time to watch. […]

    It’s amazing what lengths these companies go to in order to have their web sites come up high in searches with key words that would indicate people were looking for information on whether it’s a scam.

    Doesn’t that practice, within itself, prove the point somehow?
