Quixtar (no, not )

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A few months ago, this Indian kid named Chami attempted to recruit me into a cute little pyramid scheme called "Quixtar." It's essentially the online version of Amway, and indeed owned by the same company, Alticor. He didn't actually say the name "Quixtar" and even handed me a business card with his own company called "Global-something or other." And then he invited me to a seminar, which I stupidly attended and quickly realized that this was nothing more than an idiotic scam/cult.

I was just wondering if anybody on this educated forum has had any encounters with these nutcases?

On a sidenote, and I'm not trying to be racist here, I noticed that most (~99%) of the attendees were Indians (dot, not feather). There were a few born-in-the-USA kind, but the majority of them were immigrants. If anybody has had the unfortunate luck of getting swindled into attempting a seminar in some other part of this country (I'm from Texas, y'all), I'd really be interested in knowing if the audience was comprised of mostly immigrant Indians as well.

Thoughts and comments?

Heard about it, went to a meeting, read some stuff, walked away. Not interested.

I think Quixtar is Amway's online store. Some people approached me about the next great website "like Amazon.com" and I quickly realized what it was. I hate that crap.

I went to a Quixtar meeting. The vast majority of people there were black and Mexicans. It was pretty sad to see how easily people were swayed by promises of riches and ringers in the audience who'd scream "booya!" at every other comment. I wonder if they pray specifically on minorities, or if that is just who shows up/believes their BS?

I actually did a little research on this just now and found that Indians are a pretty large sector of the Quixtar group. They hang out at ethnic grocery stores or even regular bookstores and attempt to recruit other Indians. So yes, I think they really do prey on minorities. It makes a kind of sense, since they would logically be easier to persuade. I personally can't believe this load of crap is even legal. What distinguishes Quixtar from just another perpetuating scam? It's a wonder the FTC doesn't crack down.

Priceless.

I too attended such a meeting. Mine was held by an upscale matron in an upscale, suburban community. Audience, was all white. I asked some unwanted questions, after the presentation. That was the end of my Quixstar, 'career.'
