NWTW / Successful Prosecutions?
Does anyone know a successful prosecution of a quasi-VOTS (such as NWTW) for fraud or deceptive marketing or anything else? According to the Massachusetts BBB, NWTW isn’t techinically/legally a pyramid scheme because it sells a product — distributor kits — but obviously the kits are the only thing that keeps this on the legal side of the VOTS/pyramid scheme legal divide. Still, it seems clear the NWTW — and others, I’m sure — thrive on deceptive practices (bs “disclaimers” notwithstanding). With the help of some of her close friends, I have managed to “rescue” my fiancee from NWTW while she was only out $2k; clearly there are many other horror stories. Is a class-action lawsuit or criminial prosecution possible? Seeking thoughts, esp. from legal eagles out there.
