Greetings from Texas  
"Keep your dreams alive - they do come true

- Mayank and Sejal Gala, 1 vision

p.s. - Hope you find your dreams in corporate america"

I found that on a postcard today in my mailbox. A postcard from the couple that only a few months ago introduced me to Quixtar - Amways online marketing scam. On the front was a picture of a resort and the logo of some kind of leadership convention

Now, I have plenty of things to post about lately, but this took the cake today. I'm dumbfounded.

I thought this could be the result of one of 2 things:

1.) They are genuinely kind people, living lives completely unaware that they are deceitful, trecherous lies, and really mean me well.

2.) A seedy, underhanded ploy to plant the idea of false grandeur and success back into my mind right when it was most likely completely purged.

Both options utterly vex me.

I might just keep this postcard as a credit to the unexplainable moments in my life that I will probably never make sense of.

They want you to believe number 1, while all the while it is really number 2. You are right to be suspicious. I was in Quixtar for 18 months and only lost money.

Quick Response
Wha makes Quixtar an online marketing scam? If you understood business then you would know that affiliate marketing is perfectly legal. Is Amazon a scam? Is E-Bay a Scam? If I put an Amazon logo on my website and people click it a make a purchase, I get paid. What is the difference with Quixtar? The company is going to pay me to send people to a online mall. Now if Wal-Mart did that, then the you know that you would want a piece of the pic.

Too bad you quit the business, if this were a traditional business..would you have been so quick to quit?

Re: Quick Response
ugh. quixtar brainwashed idiot what the fuck does affiliate marketing have to do with anything?

quixtar is a negative-sum game. take a business/accounting class.

to make a PROFIT you have to recruit people and change their buying habits... who have to in turn recruit others and change their buying products... and eventually if you are lucky you get to a level where you will get a cut of the sale of tapes/books and other mind control rubbish which is where the real money is...

this is no easy task considering the products are over priced/inconvenient/and poor quality.

Re: Quick Response
Ummmm...duh. It IS an affiliate marketing business. Can't you read? Weren't you paying attention??? I don't HAVE to "recruit" people to get an IBO number & change their buying habits...THAT JUST MAKES SENSE! I don't HAVE to do anything!!! I am ENCOURAGED to do so. Do you have a problem with that?

As stated in the previous post, it's an affiliate marketing business model as Amazon.com is. The biggest difference is that Amazon.com DOESN'T PROVIDE TRAINING AND SUPPORT TO HELP TEACH YOU HOW TO BUILD YOUR BUSINESS!!! And the comp plans don't even compare...even without the tools commission.

Think again...before you write.

big brother got mad... quixtar horror!
I advertised my quixtar on ebay, I sold for 99cents the access ibo number of myself and then if they joined as a basic 20 dollar member, i WOULD GIVE THEM 10 BUCKS back for joining. I paid in full another membership.
Today in the inbox was a stop order from quixtar itself. Stop now or else pay the consequences kinda thing.
I laugh in the face of this kind of thing, and consider it a challenge since I gave up bronc riding, army deployments and bunji jumping.
Any advise? thanks

If you're so courageous and intelligent and self-sufficient, Mr. Military Man, then why are you asking strangers for their advice? Scared???
