Herbalife INT. Complaint - My experance with Herbalife

Review by Ozzie on 2006-07-18
LOSANGELEAS, CALIFORNIA -- In Feb. 2006 I join Herbalife to try and start a bussiness. Herbalife told me they would be with me untill I got started and was going on my own. First a lady in Toledo Ohio signed me up and turned me over to a Lady in Tacoma Washington. She got me to start out as a supervisor. She got me to order $3000.00 worth of products and let her know when they came in. I did as she requested and recontacted her, she then got me to order 25 leads to contact on sellin my product. The leads came in on a /Friday and cost me over $90.00 for the 25 leads. She then told me that she was going to Cancoon to a conferance and that I should go also, the tickets were only $7500.00 for plain fair an hotel for 3or 4 days. I told her I could not afford that she got irrated and told me not to do anything till she got back. While she was there sh got sick, so I was told, and did not contact me for over 2 week. The contact could be turned back in for new ones if within 72 hours. I lost all 25 of those leads. Then she turned me over to a Lady named Francis also in Washington state. She wanted me to get on the phone with conferanc calls and learn how to sell,I set on the phone for hours listening to other people try to contact peoplt on ther contact list, I never once heard one person get to talk to anyone. I had ordered 25 more contacts at over $90.00 and started trying to sell on my own. Out of the 25 contacts that I kept tryin g contact and returning before the 72 hours were up, I returned 80 names and still had 23 left. I never got a sale but did get cussed out several times and was tild that they had tried the products and they made them sick. When I tryed to return those contacts I was told that was not a good enough reasi\on to turn them back in. Then I contacted Herballif in May of 2006 and told them how I had been treated and that I wanted out and how would I go about returning my products, they gave me the info. and I boxed them up and sent them back to the company, I was told that it would take 4 to 6 week for them to get back to me. I waited 2 months and started trying to call the company again. After 4 calls I finaly got ahold of some one. The told me my supplys had been returned but not calculate yet and that they would handle that right then and call me back by the end of bussines that day. 30 minutes late a lady called me and said that they would not buy my products back because the bottles were discollared. They were not doscollared when they left my home. They are sending the products back to me,( I don't know if therte are the same products I sent them or not, Herbalife has lied to me all the way throug, I Herbalife gave me a car with Herbalife on the side to drive for a year free I would not even get in it to start it and would make sure it was not parked near my home.

You might try to work on your communications skills a bit, this was painful to try and read.

Ouch!(LOL) Ozzie, if you are able to make a profit "sellin" any "discollared" bottles of "Herballif", I will send YOU to "Cancoon".

I wish people would stop by sites such as this one BEFORE they get sucked into some MLM scheme.

I wish juvenile site members would stop making "light" of legitimate complaints and we be deleted by the admin. (zzrock)

Pirate: "...and we be deleted....?" Are you making fun of Ozzie's post? I am merely trying to encourage the man with his own words, okay?

Ozzie-With due respect, stay out of Egypt. There are pyramids there too.

I haven't been around very long, but I notice people always seem to criticize posters for their incorrect spelling and grammar.
I understand people type these letters when they may be fired up and upset, but I really wish they would proof read their posts before submitting them.
I constantly skip over posts because the spelling and grammar are so poor.
I understand not everyone is an english major, but come on, it really is very difficult to read these posts when it is so hard to follow what they are saying.

We have a few resident, juvenile trolls who seem to derive joy from making fun of posters' reviews. I believe it reveals their shallow existence and lack of self-esteem. Most of us are here to help people.
Posted by Skye on 2006-07-18:
Ah yes, trolls. I should of figured that out. I am also here to help others and not insult them. They are coming here to share their stories, and I just cannot believe some of the replies people post.

I sure am learing about certain members here.

When I'm reading posts here and I am having trouble after a few lines, I try reading it out loud. Try this. Sometimes, people spell things phonetically and it's easier to hear it than to read it; I can tell that some of the people who post here have learned English as a secondary language; and, even if the poster's primary language is English, perhaps they are just not good at expressing themselves with the written word. Be patient. I have had students from all over the world (university level) and believe me, sometimes intelligence can't be detected by what is written. :)

Welcome Skye. I'm not one to try to prejudice another like Mr. pirate does on here but anyone taking his advice is like my 2 year old grandson walking me across the street. I will say that the pirate is an expert on trolls, though. (TIR)

BTW, pirate helps people by using "big" words like "interesting" and "disturbing" in his one word replies. Pure genious!

That would be "Genius," DOPE!
