Recently, I published a post on Quixtar Cult Intervention which was a comment from a Reader named Marge. Marge told a horrific story of how her husband went through money he didn't have, ran up credit card bills and hid his Amway activities from her and basically left her another victim of the Amway financial holocaust!
An alticor employee (most likely)-- IP address 220.127.116.11 with this IP Path: Out69s.datetelecomm.net (Alticor Inc) Ada, Michigan—left the following comment in regards to Marge's plight:

sad story, but how is this amway's fault? poor decisions + low motivation + credit card + some bad advice sprinkled in does not equal a problem with the company or even the concept.
this could happen to anyone in any business, or hobby for that matter...money can be blown on lots of useless things.
amway doesn't require that owners buy any of that crap, and after $16k if this person is not wise enough to know that they have a problem then it was a matter of time before a "fool and his money are soon separated".
Besides having an obvious problem with capitalization, this person basically is making the husband the culprit behind Marge's plight. This anonymous person, obviously an Amway employee or executive says :
“poor decisions + low motivation + credit card + some bad advice sprinkled in does not equal a problem with the company or even the concept.”
I beg to differ with this 'anonymous' Alticor/Amway Global anonymous Amway apologist. I've added emphasis to “...some bad advice sprinkled in....” You mention this as if it were a very minor detail by your adding “sprinkled in”. Sure, you call all the dream selling hype and all the tool propaganda along with upline encouragement “bad advice”? I call it: CRIMINAL INTENT TO DEFRAUD! ...QIAC
