DSSRC Administrative Closure #203

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (DSSRC) contacted a direct selling company (“Company”) regarding certain earnings claims that were disseminated by the Company’s salesforce members on social media. The earnings claims promoted messages that the Company’s salesforce members could become “successful,” earn “an extra $500 a month,” and achieve “financial freedom and generational wealth.” DSSRC informed the Company of its concern that the social media posts depicted financial success that could not be generally expected by the typical salesforce member of the Company.

The Company promptly contacted the salesforce members responsible for the posts and advised them to either remove or revise the posts at issue. All of the posts at issue were promptly removed from circulation.

Accordingly, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry based upon the good faith efforts demonstrated by the Company to address DSSRC’s self-regulatory concerns.
