Case Decisions

DSSRC Administrative Closure #193

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding earnings claims and product claims disseminated by company salesforce members on social media and by the Company on its website. DSSRC was concerned that such claims depicted success that may not be generally achievable by the typical consumer or individual engaged in direct selling of the Company’s products.

The company promptly responded to DSSRC’s concerns and demonstrated that it had successfully contacted the individuals responsible for disseminating the claims in question and have them immediately remove the claims in question. The Company also removed or modified the content over which the Company had control on its website.

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