Dear McConnell, 

Before I begin to answer, let me tell you something from my experience
on Google Answers: The comment section of this answer is open to
everyone. Since many people have financial interest invested in such
companies and especially in an MLM scheme  (where people are recruited
for the sole purpose of recruiting others and so on), every question
such as yours immidiately gets responses such as "I've tried it and
now I am living like a millionaire in Japan!" [well, sure you are,
given that a million Yen is approximately $8,500].

Multi-Level-Marketing is considered in some countries illegal or
unethical. An MLM "member" doesn't sell a prosuct, as MLM members
sometimes try to present it (although sometimes they do *also* sell
products) - they sell a "franchise" to the next member to market the
products and so on. So the whole concept of MLM could be problematic
to many.

However, there is no such things as free lunches, and there are many
complaints about this company. The main claim is that the "product"
given to members in exchange of their fees doesn't worth it. I don't
know if it is considered "fraud" in the legal sense where you live,
but it is certainly something to be wary of.

See, for example:

wording and style make it a bit hard to understand, but basically she
says to stay away.

Forget the fairy tales, home-based employment is just like any
employment - it requires hard work in a certain profession, sometimes,
because of the location, harder than office-based employment. However,
everyone has *something* they can do from home, if they really want
- selling stuff they do through the Internet (on their own site or on eBay)
- offering local companies to transcribe, type or do other missions
for them through the Internet
- making money through AdSense on your site/blog
- selling stuff they purchase in bulk (or through a dropship scheme)
through the Internet (see the first one)
- selling stuff NOT through the Internet, but normally, to people in
your local area (dog wash, babysitting/home nursery, cake
baking/caterng service, private tutoring, etc.)

I hope this answers your question. Please contact me if you need any
