I agree, wht's sad is none of the Organo pushers ever want to talk about the actual instant coffee itself. And most don't seem to know what the ingredients are and the warnings are for drinking this not fresh crap.

Hello everyone,

I'm a business college graduate and currently enroll as a full time student at HTC, majoring in network engineering. I also work full time,too. I was approached by one of my most rusted uncles, who has alot of experience running his own business and whatnot. He recently join Organo Gold and he wanted me and my wife to join his team. As a business oriented person that i am, i ask alot of questions at his team's presentation such as what is the acutal sales for the company, what is their market share, and so on, but, my questions were brush aside by his presenter ( which ironically is his up-line). I am skeptical of this business because honestly, IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. i had family members who engaged in this kind of pyramid structure business before and failed miserably. So here i am, doing my research on the net and i hope that you guys will be able to help me make my decision. I dont want to jump into something without doing my homework so i hope you guys can help me with this homework..thanks everyone!!!

Do you want to do something just for making a few bucks? Sell drugs on the street, at least you can be honest about the product and it's claims. I am still waiting for just one sales person to explain the ingredients and the warning label, is there one? Why does the mushroom have to be in the instant coffee?

Do you get automatic re-stock each month, or is it only when you order? I heard they send you automatic stock whether you have sold the previous batch or not.

The FBI agents who pick you up to interrogate you about your experience in this scam won't make nearly as much as you do, and they have a really negative mindset, it's true!

You can tell the agents and Bubba all about your Mercedes, as I am sure they will really be impressed!

here is my email address [email protected] I have a lot of information about organo gold and it is legit.
I also have information, and I know that it is completely legit. I am an Organo Gold Representative and I am proof, as are the many people before me who have made it work for them. Some of my mentors make well over several thousand a month. I'm working on being where they are. The product is actually ganoderma, the coffee is just the vessel in which it is delivered. It costs a bit more than Folgers or Maxwell House because it is gourmet, in addition to the many health benefits. Not everyone is meant to be a Rep, or a distributor. Some will only be customers. Some don't believe, and that's ok as well. Everything isn't for everyone. For those who may be interested in switching to a healthier coffee please visit my site....

CHANNEL 5 WRGV [Rio Grande Valley, Texas] NEWS Investigation: Trouble Brewing

WESLACO - Several people gathered in a room filled with high energy and charismatic speakers. The message had a cult following so passionate one might think they're sitting in a church.

The message was simple: "Change your coffee. Change your life."

Organo Gold brands itself as a "healthier coffee." In a packed house in Weslaco, representatives were recruiting others to sell the instant coffee.

The crowd was told about the magnificent opportunity being offered.
SNIP
Ganoderma isn't listed under the nutrition facts. It's unclear how much the signature ingredient is in a single serving, based on the labeling. The company also sells Organo Gold capsules.
SNIP
CHANNEL 5 NEWS sent a registered dietician at UTPA nutrition facts for black coffee from Organo Gold, S--, M-- and F--.

The dietician reported back on all four brands. The conclusion was "there is not enough information to determine the degree of healthiness."

One of the Organo Gold representatives said, "If you want more information, you can visit the FDA's web page. All of our information is on the FDA's website. We have four million testimonials on the Internet."

The Food and Drug Administration investigated Organo Gold's CEO in 2004. Bernardo T. Chua was president of another company. Gano Excel also sold ganoderma products. The FDA warned Chua then that his company was breaking the law by making medical claims that could not be verified.

"If there are claims that sound too good to be true, they likely are," said Dr. D- F-, the FDA's Division Director for Dietary Supplements.

SNIP

Organo Gold is a multi-level marketing plan. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says some multi-level marketing plans are legitimate, if a person is paid only for the product sold.

It's illegal if payment is calculated on the number of distributors recruited.

Two people complained to the state about Organo Gold and its business practices.
SNIP
CHANNEL 5 NEWS called Organo Gold for answers. We were placed on hold for 20 minutes before our call suddenly ended.

We went to a second meeting for more information.

John S- was the keynote speaker at a gathering in McAllen. He's listed as one of the top sellers of Organo Gold.

People paid least seven dollars a piece to hear him speak. It was standing room only. CHANNEL 5 NEWS wasn't allowed to stay.

Two hours later, S- emerged with an entourage. He refused to talk on camera. He said he would give our phone number to someone with Organo Gold. No one called us.

M- G- was one of the people hoping for relief. We also met another, a man from Mission. He said he quit his job to sell the Organo Gold.

Six months in, he's still waiting to strike gold.

"I earn very little," he tells us.
He said he'll continue to sell the coffee and build his team.
But J- E- has stopped selling it after hearing what pharmacists said about ganoderma.
"When I saw the side effects, I couldn't sell it," SNIP
Now boxes of the coffee are tucked away in her car. With then is the motto E- once believed. "Change your coffee. Change your life."
The USDA and FDA are now taking a closer look as trouble for Organo Gold begins to brew.
Several products with ganoderma are on the market. Talk to your doctor about which is right for you.

Documents mentioned in the investigation:
FDA 2004 warning letter to Bernardo Chua
Complaints Filed with the Texas Attorney General's Office (PDF)(The text of the complaint is also posted further down the page)

Please don't carry this thing forward.
The founders have already been found wanting by multiple agencies.
