Tonight I was introduced to a company of the name “Vemma”. They sell an amazing tasting energy drink called “Verve”. Invited by one of my old buddies, I was intrigued to hear what was being said. I first arrived to a college campus in my home town and there were maybe 30 or 40 people around me. I was nervous because I didn’t know whether they were going to beat me with a bat or talk business and make a million bucks.
Concluding that moment, we all hopped in our cars and headed towards some random guys house(probably not my best decision). We all parked and got situated and they kept telling me how this awesome guy from CA had flown all the way down here to present something amazing to us. I kept hearing them talk about how this guy made like 72,000$ just in the last month. Obviously as a broke college student I was super eager to learn what this man had to say!
The guy started speaking after a few minutes of just chilling around, and we all gathered and listened. He talked about the drink, and how it is so healthy and tastes so good. I actually was even handed one to try(for free). Which in my opinion is an excellent marketing scheme in itself. He then went on however to talk for around 45 minutes of my time about how he made money, another person made money, other people make money, and just on and on about how being a “business partner” with this drink/health company could make us “wealthy”.
I ended up with a few questions in mind when he was giving his spiel. First was when he said “this drink is not in retail stores.” I questioned to why isn’t this drink in retail stores. He then tried to clarify that this business had a unique model and that the only reason it works is because it isn’t in retail. Which I disregarded instantly because I know people who are in the business to make money will always go the faster and most efficient way to get there, retail being the way for soft drink companies.
The second question is how big can this company get? This question was raised after the CA guy said that the company is a 117 million dollar company. I wondered how big the market for energy drinks was. And low and behold the numbers came up. Red bull of course in the lead with an estimate of a bit more than 1 billion dollars. I thought wow this might be worth it.
Then came the real grit and grime. You had to have two sides under you in order to make money. But they added that this was by no means a “pyramid scheme” because they had product…
You may of noticed that hunk of yellow right in the middle of this page. That my friends is how a pyramid scheme works. However Vemma’s pyramid has a lot of levels. Below you will see only a few of them, but these are the important ones to think about.
You may of noticed how most of the chart is red. The reason is to show you the people who won’t even come close to 50,000 dollars a year. The Bronze section you may notice has bigger text. But why? This is because the Bronze is the second rank you can reach(bottom-up).. and unfortunately 43% of all “business partners” only reach the second level.
Your probably thinking “Well just reaching Bronze Leader isn’t to bad. I can still quite my day job right?” Well that is where you are always wrong. Bronze leader’s were last recorded in 2011 as making an annual earning per year of 954.99$… WAIT WHAT? Just under 1,000$? And that’s the truth.
But hold on.. this guy told me he made 72,000$ just in the last month… Can I ever make that using Vemma? He said I could one day… Well the answer is short and simple.. No, you can not make that. 98% of all Business Partners make less than 34,000$… per year. So wait.. what you are hearing now is that you can still make 34,000$ per year from this program! Woop-te-do. the percentage of people actually making more than 10,000$ to 33,000$ per year is a huge… 6.61% of the 98% making less than 34,000$…
The reason you are so intrigued by this spiel is because you friends are doing it, and you liked the product correct? So why not? Well, find out for your self. Just try and answer these questions below.
1) Where is the income produced that goes to Vemma?
Every Business has an income and consumers whom provide it.
2) Who is actually going to buy this drink?
Any successful business must have an equally successful product or service.
3) Are you going to be able to make good money, or are the “people” that are helping you just helping you to make more money themselves?
4) Have you looked at their disclosure policy?
5) Did you see how the percent of average earners per month dropped by 10% since the year before?
Just take a look at these two documents and tell me they aren’t a Pyramid Scheme. I dare you to try and prove it…

The very last questions anyone should ever ask about the Vemma Business.
What will happen when everyone in the world only works for Vemma?
Who will collect trash? Who will work at banks? Who will make cars? Who will be president.. etc…
The very last think you should know.
The company Vemma was founded by BK Boreyko. If you don’t know him and you are thinking about selling his product “Verve” or anything else he makes… Take a look at this court order about him. His full name is Benson K. Boreyko and he was previously found to be selling “God’s Recipe” from a company he made up; called “New Vision International, INC.” in which was found to be of the pyramid persuasion to begin with. Therefore he is not a new member to this type of sales…
The problem for the company… is that the Pyramid Scheme is illegal in the U.S.A. No if’s, and’s, or butts about it. And they always take a long time to be noticed and taken down.
