DSSRC Administrative Closure #6
DSSRC investigated a multi-level direct selling company regarding its earning claims that were primarily found in posts on Facebook and in videos, which indicated that a lavish lifestyle could be achieved through selling the company’s products. The claims included buying a house with earnings from selling the company’s products and being able to generate several thousands of dollars in income per week. Additionally, there were photographs of individuals holding bonus checks with large amounts of money, for example there was a photograph of an oversized check in excess of $175,000.
In response to DSSRC’s letter, the direct-selling company promptly removed the social media posts and videos at issue. In addition, they promised to add typical earning disclosures when necessary in future videos and social media posts.
