I got suckered into this program back in year 2000. Spent all the necessary money to get the "info" on the so called "business". Once I found out what it was I thought I'd try it. Spent over $2000 to get to the "Supervisor level". Needless to say I was stuck with GIVING away these products just to get rid of them and ended up throwing away a bunch of it too because I was too afraid to use it or give it away after it had expired. I had way too much inventory to try to sell myself and it was stuff people were just really not interested in. After all most "herbs" you can get at a local drugstore or natural herb store. And, as you said there are tons of websites out there with these products and to get business to your website you'd have to spend a fortune to advertise or market it.
I found you site while looking up "Global Online System" in the Google search engine because I saw an ad where someone is trying to help others get started in a home-based business..and in the text of their website I found the words Global Online System and I figured it was a cover for the "real" business.
Thanks for warning others about this business. Definately one to stay away from!
I loved your website! I only wish I had seen it 6 months ago. I, unfortunately, was scammed lately. I contacted a company called Global Online System, who referred me to a woman who works with them selling Herbalife. I was interested, of course like so many people, in working from home. I wish I would have done my investigating like you did about what I was buying from her but all she told me was that it would "all be laid out for me in the package" and if I didn't liked what I received, I could always return it with their money back guarantee. Well, I'm sure you probably have figured out, of course, I did not get my money back. I was told to send the package back to her, which I did, to the same address it came from and she claims she never received it. (Stupid on my part to have sent it without a signature return!) Anyway, keep doin' what your doin' and get the word out there. I, too, cannot stand the litter that is being created with the flyers!!! My best to you.

Rob - I wish I'd read your information sooner. I spent the money for the 4,000VP AND have bought more for my son to try and other promoting tools. I had a feeling in my gut but thought it was my own "fear." The sad thing is I think my "mentor" really is a nice guy but he had the money to invest. I told him I one credit card in collections and I was on disability and have been ill for a while. He thought "this was
perfect" because I would be motivated. Just like some others I read I, too, have felt worse since taking the products - nausea, headaches and weight GAIN. After telling my mentor what was going on, if he had any "soul" would have recognized that I maybe wasn't a good candidate. Sure in the past I was a go-getter but I've been ill for 10 years and haven't worked in 5! Do you think I could really go out all of a sudden and be comfortable talking to anyone and have the energy to work on this 8+ hours a day? No. In fact, the stress of this has made me more depressed and it's only been a month.
I have canceled all accounts and websites (3 of them: 1 for product, 2 for work at home). I had a Merchant Account, etc. Maybe I would have recouped some of the money after a while but after reading your stats I know it would have been a long while and I would still
be putting out more than I was taking in.
What's really sad is my mentor was a Christian like me and also a recovered alcoholic like me - both of us sober quite a while. But as a Christian he should have been more sensitive to notice that I just wasn't well enough to do this. Even if he just started me as
a distributor that would have been better. I bot so stressed out after a few weeks that I cried for days.
It is clear to me that only those who have the money to invest and a go-getter personality will be successful. I was impressed by the "coaching" I received but after I knew the basics and showed an understanding I stopped getting daily phone calls from
I, too, was shocked about Mark Hughes. I know anyone can fall from grace but this is big. I was also pulled in by the medical personnel on their board and the CEO who used to work for Disney. I should have just done more research.
Hopefully with the money I get back and recouping my loss during tax time I can get my dignity back but I have definitely lost a few thousand.
Keep up the good work.
