Case Decisions

DSSRC Administrative Closure #183

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding nine social media posts. DSSRC was concerned that these posts made both explicit and implied claims that typical salesforce members of the Company could generally expect to earn significant, full-time, or career replacement income through participating in the Company’s business opportunity. The posts were identified by DSSRC pursuant to its ongoing, independent monitoring of the direct selling industry.

The company immediately responded to DSSRC and expressed the Company's commitment to ensuring an honest and fair marketplace. All nine of the posts brought to the Company’s attention were promptly removed

As a result of the Company’s immediate, good faith actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
