Plexus Scam Revealed!!!
What Does the Internet Say?
Plexus scam revealed!!! Wow! what a headline. Have you ever googled Plexus? I did before I started taking the Triplex Combo. I’m a research addict so I looked up any and all information I could find and what did the internet tell me? I’d be crazy to try Plexus. Betty Rips The “Pink Drink” Apart scared the “you know what” out of me.
Betty Verses Plexus:
Betty certainly makes it clear that she is not an ambassador and she claims that this in the only true review of the product out there. She even has a test to see if the “pink drink” is right for you. I took that test every way you could and it gave me the same results every time. It told me that it didn’t work for 84% (approximately) and that I was in that category. Further down on that page I could get a FREE preview telling me about a company that has a plan that would work for me. Fit Finally. For a short time I can get this course for $14 and it will tell me what to eat and how to cleanse my system naturally.
Yes I’m an Ambassador
First, I’m an independent silver ambassador for Plexus Worldwide. So yes, I’m biased about the product and I’m biased about the company. I’m biased because the products work for me so I decided to start sharing. I started out as a customer and then signed up as an ambassador when I knew how well the products worked for me. Getting that out-of-the-way first, now lets look at Betty.
Betty, You’re Selling a Product Too
Well, sorry Betty. I now know that you are bashing Plexus because you are selling a product. So her solution involves changing habits, changing what you eat, and cleansing your system naturally. Frankly, that sounds like what Plexus has told me also. That means that Betty’s program will work. So really what it boils down to is what is the difference between Betty’s program and Plexus?

This is from the Plexus website. This is new formula for the “Pink Drink”. My next post will be review of the new Plexus Slim and its packaging. But for now, Plexus tells me that the “pink drink” is a weight management partner. They also tell me that it helps with weight loss. That gives me a clue that I have to do some work. That makes sense. There are no free rides in life. You never get something for nothing. Even in a sweepstakes you have to do something to qualify for entry.
Program Costs Compared
I saw on the Fit Finally site where that program costs $77, and she complains about the cost of Plexus. When it comes to Plexus the cost depends on what you order. You can buy the Triplex Combo for $124.95 a month as a preferred customer. After purchasing for 3 consecutive months you’ll get an extra 10% off which means you’ll get it for almost wholesale price. I also fell in love with Block which blocks 48% of the carbs you eat. Block is $34.95 a month. Edge which gives me an energy boost when I really need one costs $30 a month. After being on these products for 4 months I realized I was saving:
- $35 a month on the energy drinks I wasn’t buying
- $20 a month on the diet mountain dew I wasn’t buying
- $4 a month on the aspirin I wasn’t buying
- $4 a month on the ibuprofen I wasn’t buying
- $4 a month on the alieve I wasn’t buying
- $3 a month on the laxatives I didn’t need
- $8 a month on the generic unisom I didn’t use anymore
- $10 a month on the heartburn medicine I no longer used
- $25-45 every 2 months or less on doctors visits
Total Saved: $149-$169 a month. That seems to cover the cost of Plexus Triplex Combo.
I am Spending More
Now in the spirit of honesty, I’ll tell you that I’ve spent more than that. I had to buy new clothes because I’ve gone down 2 sizes since I started. I did save money by buying at a thrift store. So it is costing me some money. But I solved that problem by signing up as an ambassador.
I started sharing my results with others who are in the same spot as me health-wise and weight-wise and a lot of people wanted to join me so after 3 months of sharing, my products are paid for by my earnings. I’m not stopping there though. I am going to replace my full-time job with this business so I can work from home and not worry about retirement. So that takes us to the last complaint Betty has that I want to discuss:
Don’t Get Involved!
So far I haven’t seen anywhere the Plexus scam that Betty talks about. The only thing I’ve seen is that she works for a company and I work for a company. I don’t feel the need to demonize the company she works for. It would be nice if she didn’t try to do that to the one I work for but, “to each his or her own”.
Betty’s View of MLM
These are Betty’s words. I just had to add a couple of notes. She calls Plexus a multi level marketing SCHEME. I searched to see if there was such a term and couldn’t find it. According to my research there is Multi Level Marketing and there are pyramid schemes.
Multi Level Marketing
What is Multi-Level Marketing (MLM)?
Also known as network marketing, MLM is a system of retailing in which consumer products are sold by independent salespeople (distributors). Earnings in MLM are based on effort and ability to sell consumer products supplied to the distributor by the company. A MLM company will also encourage distributors to build their own sales force by recruiting, motivating, supplying and training others to sell products, earning a percentage of the sales from the sales force.
Red Flags of a Questionable MLM Opportunity:
Promises of high earnings, especially with little effort, time or serious commitment.
Requirement to purchase a large amount of inventory to start, with no written guarantee that unsold products will be bought back for a certain percentage of the original price.
Request for payment in cash, via wire transfer, or money order for initial investment.
This information comes from BBB.org. The don’t reference the word “scheme” but they do tell you what a “questionable” MLM opportunity is. None of those qualifications apply to Plexus.
Plexus didn’t promise me high earnings for no work. Actually, they didn’t promise me any earnings. They did say that I could increase my cash flow but I would have to work for it. The plus to Plexus is that I can work from home and work on my computer or my phone.
Plexus didn’t need me to buy a lot of product. I don’t have to buy any. They ask me to pay a membership fee of $34.95. I want you to watch the testimony of a diamond ambassador (they make a lot of money) who didn’t buy products until she had enough customers to be able to get them with earned income.
The last qualification is to take cash or money order for the first investment. I had to go to a website to sign up. You can join my team here. Even if you don’t want to join, check the site out. See if it is legit.
What are Pyramid Schemes?
Pyramid schemes concentrate mainly on making quick profits earned by selling the right to recruit others. Pyramid schemes focus more on recruiting other participants than selling the product or service, making little to no mention about the market for the item. Pyramid scheme participants try to recoup their investment in products by recruiting potential investors.
Red Flags of a Pyramid Scheme:
Promises to make thousands or even millions of dollars with little effort.
Long anecdotes of how many people have made a fortune with the company without providing concrete facts.
Large start-up costs and substantial hidden fees to become a distributor.
Revenue is generated from selling the opportunity not the product.
Call to Action:
Contact me for more information about this business opportunity. In conclusion, I want to say that I am a proud Silver Ambassador with Plexus Worldwide. This opportunity to increase my cash flow is on the way to allowing me to quit my 9-5 job. It has paid for the products that I order every month. I take them because they work and I have seen many testimonies of how these supplements are working for others. These are customers and ambassadors alike.
