Actually only lawsuit world ventures in currently is over tax evasion so re check your research and only reason for that is because it is not easy to deal with millions of clients at once do unless you have proof of those allegations jbat, please don't talk out your ass without support thanks.

I dont think I would want to have business with a group that is going through a tax evasion lawsuit. Does World Ventures have a BBB profile?

Edit: I found their BBB Profile.

It looks like one of the former successful "insiders" developed a distaste for the Kool Aid:

Your right, my bad. It's not currently ongoing they already settled, my pops was part of the group that sued them, if it happened once it'll happen again. They don't just completely change business practices overnight. And you say tax evasion like its no big deal, think of all the other companies out there that manage to deal with millions of customers and don't have issues.

I saw an article that said their revenue last year was $91million, and the same article stated they had "tens of thousands" of sales people globally. Let's see...........some simple math........... $91,000,000 divided by "tens of thousands" (let's got with 30,000 to be safe)......... thirty thousand goes into ninety-one thousand 3 times.......... subtract..........carry the one.............ummmmmm here we go....... $3,033 per person! Sounds like RETIREMENT to me!! WooHoo!!!

Now, lest we forget it's a pyramid-like scheme the payout is going to be the inverse of that; for the couple of guys at the top who run the Kool-Aid factory, they're going to get the huge money, and it's going to drop off rapidly from there. The guys at the bottom, who are doing ALL the recruiting, all the investing, experiencing all the turnover, etc.... are over 90% of the "tens of thousands", and they're getting $0. In fact, they're probably losing money due to the investing in meetings, vacations, fees, other nonsense, etc.....and the guys at the top are COUNTING on the guys at the bottom to keep doing it. And they will, until they figure it out, then they'll be part of the huge turnover statistic; the common pattern of any place like this that sells something that basically has zero value.

Except even if by some chance you ever do achieve CEO you can never take your Friends with you. And in mlm certain companies only if you work hard for a year or so you can achieve it together as a team not as an individual as some mlm are direct sales and the kool aid im with is team comp and it's actually an EOO.
