Thank you for sharing that information. It makes one more confident and comfortable with the present company they are in. I have been a Herbalife Member for the past 16years. I have been successful in earning the income their marketing plan showed me I would. From time to time I do get invites to do other MLM but with thi guidelines I can now have good and solid reasons why I am not going the other way and sticking with my present company. Again thank you very much for the infomative information

FUND RECOVERY
Sun, 02/17/2019 - 04:02
After putting a large amount on my account, I’ve watched how my balance would go higher and higher. And , of course, seeing this “proof” of how I’m good at it, my manager Peter made me invest more over 50000 Euro. After a couple weeks of such magnificent trading, my account ended up over 340000Euro. An excellent opportunity to file a withdraw, no? No!! They released only 1500 in order to trick me invest more 100000. I didn’t have such money at the moment and I was put on hold....Weeks after nobody would even answer my calls or my emails. It became very clear, that I’ve become a victim of a huge and shameless scam. Time passed by and I was growing disappointed and very angry with my own naiveness. Only at August 2017 I came across zidex hackers , company, who works against binary criminals. They didn’t charged any upfront payment . It was a little hard to believe someone over the internet and phone again, but I lost to much money and loosing just little bit more, in case if its another scam, was not that painful. I’ve provided their team with all documents related to my trading and waited.  After few weeks i got all my money back and have to send their 20% as agreed i recommend them , contact John @ zidexhackers. net to direct you on the process
