Case Decisions

DSSRC Administrative Closure #211

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (“Company”) regarding three social media posts disseminated on YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok. DSSRC was concerned that these posts may be reasonably interpreted as communicating that by partaking in the Company’s business opportunity, salesforce members would earn a substantial income. The posts were identified by DSSRC pursuant to its ongoing, independent monitoring of the direct selling industry.

DSSRC was informed that Company removed all three posts immediately after the claims were brought to its attention. Based on the Company’s prompt actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
