    One thought on “Merchants of Deception: An Insider's Chilling Look at the Worldwide, Multi Billion Dollar Conspiracy of Lies that is Amway and its Motivational Organizations”

    1. The first two thirds of this book were a fascinating insider's look at the practices adopted by multi-level marketing organisations, but the hysterical final third really could have benefitted from an editor. Also, mate, I'm sorry for your trouble an' that but just because you voluntarily purchased hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of motivational tapes from scumbags in shiny suits who told you were worthless does not mean you were "repeatedly raped".

    2. Merchants of Deception by Eric ScheibelerThere “are many different types of cults. There are religious, political, financial, self improvement, UFO, and other types as wellAs different as they all are, most have certain defining characteristics that lump them into the category of a cult.” In the 1990s Eric and Patty Scheibeler fell victim to a business cult that has been snaring innocent families for several decades. The indoctrination into the Amway cult financially, emotionally, and spirit [...]

    3. Anyone thinking of joining Amway (or anyone with a friend or relative thinking of joining) needs to read this. I found it quite by chance when looking for Amway's New Zealand web site which (at the time) was, for some reason best known to themselves, not amway. We had already left Amway by then but the book was still a shock to me and it answered many questions I had when we were in Amway. One was, "They must be buying these tapes in bulk; therefore they'd cost less than a dollar. Why do they co [...]

    4. This is a modern variation on the classic uncle Laban story, in which the ego charms us into working for the false promises of the world. Anyone who has done any living should be able to recognize himself in this story. Eric Scheibeler tells it in a very forthright manner and with great honesty about his own personal horror journey within Amway, which not undeservedly has the nickname Scamway. My own exposure to Amway was through a lovely old friend who got completely wrapped up in it, and I end [...]

    5. I came across this self-published manuscript when I started researching multi-level marketing (MLM) companies, as a result of someone I know trying to recruit me into a 2017 incarnation of the scam. I had not heard of Amway before reading Merchants of Deception, but also don't feel I learned much about it via this 'insider' account. Eric Scheibeler is clearly not a writer, even a decent one at that; from a literary perspective, the book is put together haphazardly, almost stream of consciousness [...]

    6. Merchants of Deception could really use some heavy editing; it is not the clearest read. That said, I suspect that Amway's systems were deliberately confusing and designed to obfuscate and brainwash. This wasn't an easy subject for a non-author to tackle, and Scheibeler offers some useful insights into the cult-like workings of Amway in the 1980s.

    7. This book is no longer printed, but is freely available as ebook. You can download PDF, or other formats such as amazon kindle format then send to your kindle email address (Check amazon help if you are unsure how).I find this subject fascinating. I read "Downline: An Intolerable Potential to Deceive" which was a fiction book loosely based on a heavy hitter's experiences in the MLM industry for a decade or so. It left me wanting a more-well written, fact based book.Merchants of Deception is exac [...]

    8. Only just started but am rivited thus far.I have actually been an Amway seminar so can understand alot of what this guy is talking about, however it was after I went to the seminar that I realised there was soemthing not right about it and never continued. I still wonder what it was because I remember the feeling of being there with all those people so hyped up I can completely understand how anyone could get totaly carried along with it all. But I remember thinking as I left, 'they are far too [...]

    9. Great material, interesting story, but he's not kidding when he admits that he's no author. I glossed over a lot of the quotes from the Amway seminars and tapesif you've heard one, you've heard 'em all. I was way more interested in his personal story and he does a decent job of documenting it. His abundant use of "rape" towards the 2/3 mark until the end was off-putting, as were the comparisons to Anne Frank and other extreme hyperboles. I wish I could serve as editor or proofreader for a lot of [...]

    10. An enlightening, and terrifying, look into the practises of not just Amway, but Multi-Level-Marketing schemes in general. So many of the abuses described are still being carried out today by other organisations, same lies, same deceit. OK, the ebook could do with a little tidying, some proof reading and a better layout, but when a book this important is available at no cost, then it's just splitting hairs.

    11. Needs an edit badlyuld stand to lost 150 pagesbut an interesting factual read about the nastiness that is Amway / Multi-level / Network marketing that actually reads like a thriller for most of it .

    12. Incredible and interesting book about the cult like behaviour of Multi-Level Marketing and Pyramid marketing schemes. Gripping read.
