DSSRC Administrative Closure #145

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (DSSRC) contacted a direct selling company (“Company”) regarding two Facebook posts and a Youtube video disseminated by Company salesforce members. All three social media offerings were disseminated by salesforce members located overseas and all three included implied earnings claims that Company salesforce members can earn significant income through the Company’s business opportunity.

The Company immediately responded to the DSSRC inquiry and advised DSSRC that internal compliance policy prohibits salesforce members from communicating earning claims of any kind.

Shortly thereafter, the Company informed DSSRC that it was able to contact the salesforce members responsible for the posts and video and effectuate removal. Accordingly, based upon the prompt, good faith actions taken by the Company to immediately address DSSRC’s concerns, the inquiry was administratively closed pursuant to the DSSRC Policy & Procedures.
