Herbalife 'presidents' in alleged HK$50 million direct-selling scam (http://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/article/1717162/herbalife-presidents-alleged-hk50-million-direct-selling-scam)

More than 60 people have said they fell for a direct-selling scam after two women who claimed to be "presidents" of multinational nutrition firm Herbalife allegedly disappeared with HK$50 million.

The alleged victims claim the two saleswomen, surnamed Choi and Ng, persuaded them to hand over cash to buy discounted products from the company.

Choi and Ng said they had registered and paid a membership fee to sell the products...


Herbalife insisted it had nothing to do with the actions of Choi and Ng and added it was "shocked" and "appalled" to hear of the case. The company said it had ended their membership.

Translation: "Tough ****. We're outa here."

So, let me get this straight.

When some people actually buy your products, at a wholesale discount mind you, and then claim that they were ripped off because all they got were the products, at less than retail value mind you, you then continue to say your business model is not a scam?
