The Synergy1 Phone Calls
Wednesday, August 15, 2007


Captain's Log Stardate -316621.08

So I finally got a call from those Synergy1 / Nu Skin freaks. I heard them way back since Lalaine's cousin got "scammed" by these guys. Anyway, you can read about these scammers here, here, here, and here. Basically, signs of a scam from these 4 blogs also manifested on our call. She talks fast, told me she's from a multi-national company, I was recommended by AMA University, and I was really a good leader of some sort that she was interested to introduce a business proposal. No, she wasn't recruiting me for a job that the other 4 bloggers experienced. She proposed that I invested on their business and the details are top secret.

She then requested me to attend a business seminar tomorrow so she could explain in detail their proposals. I then asked her directly to stop telling me that the business is top secret and just tell the name of her company. I told her that MLM companies irritates me that if her company just turns out to be one when I arrived on their office, I won't hesitate to report her to SEC (ok I'm joking). I also told her that some of my friends have already been victimized by a company that sells skin products somewhere in Ortigas. She asked me what company is it, I said I forgot, though I already opened their website on my browser while we're talking.

She then kept on telling me to attend the seminar she has scheduled and she needs to go now since she'll be in a meeting (mmkay). I said that no company, no seminar. The she finally spilled the beans, "Sir John, our company is Synergy One". BINGO!

I told her, "ooohh.. that company... that was the company I was telling you. Do you really believe I'm that gullible to believe that you'll be in a meeting later? I bet you'll be sitting there for the next 6 hours calling whoever who's on your list.." She then said that she'll be hanging the phone since I'm not interested.

I asked her where did she get my number. She said it was from a database. If it was on a database, how could have my school recommended me? Hmm... Dang! I can't recall her name.. anyway, she was still talking some sh*t when I hanged up the phone.

Some info on this MLM sh*t:
