DSSRC Administrative Closure #215

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (“Company”) regarding four social media posts disseminated on Facebook that were identified pursuant to its monitoring of the direct selling industry. Three of the posts included references to the ability for Company salesforce members to earn full time income. In addition, the remaining post referenced the COVID-19 pandemic as being an optimal opportunity to earn significant, residual income through the direct selling opportunity.

Following its receipt of DSSRC’s notice of inquiry, the Company immediately took action to contact the independent salesforce members responsible for the social media posts. Accordingly, it was confirmed that three of the posts were discontinued shortly after the Company was notified of DSSRC’s concerns and that the remaining post was modified to eliminate any reference an unlimited income opportunity.

Based upon the immediate, bona fide, good faith actions taken by the Company to address it concerns, DSSRC administratively closed its inquiry.
