Oh, and also this company has already retired my fiancÚ who went from working 70 hours a week.
He's not even 30 yet.
So all of you haters who think they know everything about this company because you found it on the Internet, think again.
Have fun working until you're halfway dead.
We'll be on the beach ;)
Amanda I have to agree with you. I personally have not joined yet but I know 2 people who have Joined. They have both been very successful so far and their team continues to grow. I think it's amusing all the haters who claim thy know everything there is to know about this company and pyramid schemes. When in reality they already have the mindset that it has to be a scam without doing extensive research and instead fill others heads with lies and bullshit about how it's all a scam. If anyone has done it and quit it's because they didn't put the hard work in and failed. Nothing in life is easy, nothing comes free. I am saying this as an outsider looking in. Let the haters hate. They will learn soon enough how foolish and wrong they were. I leave them with this ...Invest in your dreams , they have the greatest return.

Actually you're friend is totally wrong, refer 4 pay no more.
Maybe all of you people who think you know something about this "scam" should actually look into it a little more.
I went from never being on a plane or a vacation in my life to going on three amazing trips last year.. And I have about six other ones booked for this year which includes going to Guatemala and help building a school.
I've been in since July of last year.
I make money off of this every month, I have my freemw as well thank you.
What are you doing with your life that's so great? You all sound pretty miserable ;) if your friends are "tricking" you into this then they're not doing it right at all. That's not what we're about.
For the company to persist there constantly has to be thousands of people paying monthly fees so others can get paid. Even if some of those people "find 4 to pay no more" then there will be new people paying. What a great concept, milk the newbies so you can have yours. I'd rather make an honest living, not having to leach off others, even if it means I'll have to work harder. Want to know why? Because some of us aren't morally bankrupt, that's why. I don't see how you people can support that type of business model. Ethics aside, huh?

They pretty much are. An old friend of mine got sucked in and not even one month after joining he posted a video talking about how great this company is, even going as far as to say he "would die for the people in this company." Of course that's exactly how he referred to it "company," not once saying "WorldVentures" (they tell their reps not to say the name of the company when trying to pitch it to others LMAO).

Now this is extremely peculiar. Almost all big businesses are like this because of things I won't mention, but not saying the company's name?? Very odd shit.

WV is so retarded definitely a scam for those reps who are under the "bosses" it's all a pyramid scheme my husbands friend is in this crap for about 3 years now he hasn't even gotten that car which is supposedly a reward but what happens when you qualify but then a person that you signed up drop out? It's all very fishy business and sad people actually fall for this nonsense. "Make a living living" "you should be here" all I see is a bunch of monkeys holdin up blue signs instead of actually getting a REAL job wake up people! You're a bunch of scrubs that don't even make minimum wage yet you're stuck in this vacation fantasy world. And now my husbands friend pressured him into joining this nonsense and now has to pay 600$ plus that stupid monthly 50$ fee or whatever. Makes me sick people.. Being obsessed with a dream does not make it happen; productivity will! And guess what only making 3000 dollars from this absolute crap is not being productive!

Thank you ETHICS! This is exactly the kind of information I was looking for. I KNEW my "friend" was being sneaky. I've heard that old ruse before: Hey, how's work going? Do you like your job? I have something I would like to talk to you about. I just wasn't sure what it was this time.

Yes they do. They have been brainwashed by the lure of easy money. They have been served the kool-aid. Drink it up suckers. I too have some indoctrinated wv friends. They were buzzing on fb, plastering pics of signs that read, " you should be here". They dug up people from their past, with whom they hadn't spoken to in years, and wanted to "reconnect". They actually wanted to disconnect me from my cash. All they posted about on fb were photos of those stupid signs, and pics of BMW's that they were just alllllllmost about to be driving. Some eight months later though, it seems as though they must have took the second prize, because they are still driving that old beater around. The pics of those blue signs have vanished from their fb pages too. I don't know what could have happened. Too funny

It is so funny how many haters are on this site. You talk about people conning others, not feeding their kids or what ever else you have drawn up. the reality s that there are people out there makng money with this company seen it first hand....i have sold many items like avon for those who dont know is a billion dollar company and is the # 1 mlm in the world...but you have to bust your a$$ to get paid...i dont judge anyone for trying to do better...and i dont feel your taking advantage of your friends and family by offering this opportunity...something must be good about it if people are making money and like i said i have a friend who is doing his thing....i am not a member but i am not going to bash him over the head for something they believe..people on this cite are angry haters who probably have not accomplished anything in their lives so they feel they have to put people down or talk s*** to make their self feel better...

This is so easy.

You sign up 4 people and it is free.

They sign up 4 who sign up 4 and so on.

Before long you have thousands of people under you.

I don't know how it works but it is legal because of the dream trips.

I am going to be rich and move to Tahiti. It beats doing nails. I did that for awhile but did not like those gross old men and women's toenails.

You don't have to go to meetings but they are fun if you do.

WV was a no brainer for me.

If your lazy dumbazz doesn't want any part of WV then just say no and continue living your miserable life. Why keep talking about it? Jealous much?

Some of these vacations are not desirable. Branson? Really? I lived 30 miles away from Branson for 6 years and could always afford to go up there and do fun things. It doesn't take that much money to take a trip to Branson. Go somewhere FUN and expensive...and then come and brag about it. Oh, and, pics or it didn't happen.

Great representation you are for WorldVentures. You used "complete losers" in this post and "lazy asses" in your previous, to describe people whom are skeptical of WorldVentures. Since the comments were made within minutes of each other and both from Dallas, TX (in a Jackson, TN forum), don't think you're fooling anyone by changing your name. Anyway, you claim "all businesses are pyramid shaped." Well, name me another business where the business representatives must pay the company to become representatives AND where a majority of those representatives don't make any money at all.

The facts remain. There are people in this world who will fall for anything. I stated in an earlier post that I have an acquaintance who is, or was in wv. They posted pics of a minuscule check from wv on fb to prove you could make money. They posted pics of BMW's that someone else was driving, and pics of this blue signs. The theory of wv business model is workable. However, when they pitch the "opportunity", they only show you how broad your base will be after you get the pyramid going. They never show you what it will actually look like when 80% of your people drop out of the " opportunity". If they showed the the pyramid never gets very many blocks filled on order to become an actual pyramid. It's kind of like playing Jenga. You can only pull out so many blocks until it all comes crashing down. Amway is a great example. Lots of people who joined Amway in its infancy rose to the top quickly, because the weren't a great deal of people in your way. As the company became flooded with new people, and with people continually dropping out. the opportunity got farther and farther away, but the sales pitch always, and still remains the same. Wv is flooded with wannabe billionaires. It's a fool's bet at this point. It's comical to watch those dollar signs in their eyes fade to tears though.

A friend joined Rovia and so excited to tell me about it. I needed to book just an airline flight and went to their website. I did everything myself and got a message that the booking would be confirmed in "3 to 4 hours". My friend contacted me to thank me for booking, they had contacted her, so I assumed it was all done. FOURTEEN hours later, I get an email saying NOTHING is booked that these flights did not have seats available. I called Rovia's office in Plano, TX and got a woman who barely spoke English. She was not willing to do anything at all and told me to book online again. I didn't, no one burns me twice. I booked it myself directly with the airlines once I found there WERE seats available on these same flights. Then of all the NERVE, Rovia charged me a service fee and for travel insurance when they did NOTHING but answer a freaking phone and give me the buzz off! I had to file a BBB complaint and go through my bank to reverse the charges. What a SCAM!

Yes it can. Every dollar that you put in for your monthly dues is a dollar towards your vacation. I always "think" about setting back for a vacation. This however allows me to actually start "doing it". Why would I NOT want to try to help friends and family do the same thing? Every business is a scam if your only thought is that there is someone above you making more than you do off of your hard work. I have been reading these comments looking for a valid reason to not join and have not found a single one. So as I am pretty sure that as soon as I can I will be one of these worthless evil people that you speek of. By the way, I am sure that there are plenty of people out there doing this to only better them selves and just make the sale but that is not the person that OFFERED this to me and nor will it be me. What is really funny after reading most of these is everyones thought that this company is out to screw everyone that joins. If that were so how it be were it is? This company cares at least as much about you as the person that you purchased your car, house or any other commision sold good does. Chew an that for a while

Actually I joined and had the opportunity to get my required members to waive my monthly fee and was able to make back my initial investment. I didn't trick anyone into it, I was upfront with them on exactly what this was. Our presentations are about the trips and the consulting comes at the very end. I have gone on trips and saved some good money and have taken advantage of the resort credits. This isn't my life, it's just another added revenue stream for extra cash each month.
For those of you that don't know, this is the same setup as Avon or Mary Kay. Mary Kay requires you to not only pay the startup fee but also buy about $800 of inventory plus bags, catalogs, etc. And if you don't sell it, you're stuck with it. WV doesn't require you to stock anything. As it was said earlier, "you get out, what you put in".
