FHTM (Fortune High Tech Marketing)

I had a friend of mine invite my wife and I to his house for a get-together in the evening a few weeks ago. It was nice of him to invite us since it has been a while when we last got together. Little did we know, that we were not the only ones being invited, so we begun to feel mislead and out of place with people we didn’t know. We went along with it and enjoyed ourselves with an entertaining evening of food and meeting new people. Something strange happened after two hours of socializing; my friend called all of us into his living room and began to tell us the main purpose of his invite to all of us, was to share a new business venture he is involved with. We began to laugh and think, Ok, go on and lets here what you have to say. He showed us a DVD presentation of a MLM business. After it was over with, I thought to myself, not another one of those deals, since we was mislead on our invite. No one questioned it or became involved, as the DVD would suggest. My friend that did the invite, was the only one involved with this Fortune business except for his sponsor. In fact, everyone there was saying to be careful with that deal and let us know how it works out. The next day I did my research on the internet to see what I could find out about this company, just in case my friend was involved with a scam. From what I have read I don’t see any good that can come from this business and that a lot of unfortunate mishaps are represented from peoples experience. It’s just like one of those deals. It boils down to getting your family and close friends involved, just to make money off of them and signing them up on expensive services and products they would never need or use. Most people don’t feel comfortable about making money off their family and friends. The ones currently involved in FHTM do, and they defend it with an unusual mindset that would make someone question their business ethics and public relations in operating a business. Bluntly put, SCAMLESS!!! The other thing that caught my guard when surfing the internet, was the BBB report on FHTM. Sure any major corporate business can have complaints, but what about a MLM privately held business? It’s enough that it’s a scamless business, but the complaints are high for a MLM privately held business. Corporate businesses do not have a section in their report that talks about pyramid scheme like the BBB report has on Fortune, very ironic to say the least. This is just my experience with Fortune and it will be the last. I’m a business owner myself and very successful at it, but a MLM business like Fortune is just another one of those deals that people get wrapped up in to, just make money by recruiting others to join. With the amount of complaints on the internet, if people went to the BBB website to file a complaint, this company would be shut down, wouldn't you think? Has anyone had this experience or something like it? It just seems these reps are so misleading and the business is a pyramid scheme.
