DSSRC Administrative Closure #294
The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) that markets household good products regarding seven social media posts that were disseminated by a salesforce member of the Company on Facebook and YouTube. Several posts made reference to “free” incentive trips and other unqualified claims including statements of “financial freedom,” replacing income and earning “an extra $200 a month.” DSSRC was concerned that the post communicated that a typical salesforce member will earn a significant amount of income from the Company’s business opportunity.
Within hours of receiving the DSSRC Notice of Inquiry, the Company took immediate action and promptly removed all seven of the posts.
Based on the Company’s immediate, good faith actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
