DSSRC Administrative Closure #126

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding two social media posts made by salesforce members of the Company.  Both posted touted the income opportunity afforded by the direct selling opportunity. In the context in which the posts were made, DSSRC was concerned with the claim that the opportunity afforded Company salesforce members with financial freedom.

In response to DSSRC’s inquiry, the Company promptly contacted the salesforce members responsible for the posts. The Company was contacted the salesforce member that posted the video and instructed the salesforce member to delete it. DSSRC confirmed that the video was in fact deleted and, based upon the Company’s good faith actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
