DSSRC Administrative Closure #81

DSSRC contacted a direct selling company about a social media post disseminated by one of its salesforce members that contained several earnings claims including an express claim that salesforce members could earn $500 or more per month. Other claims at issue in the social media post included language describing the opportunity as zero-risk and money back guaranteed as well as the claim salesforce members could become stay at home parents.

DSSRC contacted the direct selling company about the social media post on the same day that such post was published by the company’s salesforce member. Within hours of DSSRC contacting the direct selling company, the company had the salesforce member remove the social media post resulting in the post being taken down the same day it was published.

DSSRC expressed its appreciation to the company for its efforts in removing the post. As a result of the prompt actions taken by the company, DSSRC administratively closed the inquiry.
