Is Qnet scam or legitimate business ? Typing "Qnet is" in Google suggests "Qnet Scam" indicating what the people are searching for. This was the first thing I did after meeting a Qnet IR yesterday.
My cousin sister called me to "partner" with her in an e-commerce venture and to meet her senior regarding this. In evening I joined her in a coffee shop. After waiting for half an hour the IR came and ordered a coffee for himself and things started to become more clear.
Below is my experience of meeting that Qnet IR and I will leave the decision on to you whether Qnet is Scam or not !
Qnet IR or Individual Representative was dressed in suit and tie with bulky wrist watch and 3-4 Mobile Phones !! He talked with an authority and talked things which made no sense at all !
He asked about me and few things about my profession (this way he could know how much can I actually invest). This followed by Robert Kiyosaki's famous quadrant about the Employee, Self employed Personnel, Business man and Investor. Obviously majority including you are poor employees. A chart with Time and Money as parameter followed :
as the number of Independent Representatives (IR) increases, finding more IR's becomes harder and harder, until those that join late are unable to recover even their initial outlay and the model collapses.source : www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qnet
When back at home I checked Qnet Products and services and was again confused is Qnet Scam ?
The products and services were categorized and includes :
Q Net is the main subsidiary of the QI Group and was founded in Hong Kong by Dato' Vijay Eswaran in 1998. It was initially known as GoldQuest, then QuestNet.Both Goldquest and QuestNet were banned in India and they closed their offices in India few years ago.
Simply pay for your one-year IRship Package, which includes your online Business Planner and Product Portfolio consisting of an array of multimedia presentations, videos and brochures.(source: www.qnet.net)
If you will check Multi level marketing and MLM network stages you will see that MLM companies like Qnet are promising lot of money as you move up the pyramid. MLM/Qnet IR talks in millions of rupees / dollar. This actually excites the basic human desire of "Financial Independence" e.g. the money comes automatically and you do not need to work anymore.
Nobody wants to work, lets accept it, everyone wants to drive an Audi, go for vacation, do foreign trips and that is what the MLM/Qnet IR talks about! That is what you want to hear and that is why one joins MLM networks and get scammed.
Companies like Qnet use
It's a powerful way to get fast cash! in their Compensation plan but also warns you in their TNC (Professional Marketing) that
QNet's business is not a 'get-rich-quick scheme'. Of course you are smart enough to make the right decision for "Is Qnet Scam or not" ?
Hi there ! ....and that was not an end , Qnet have had hired ORM firm to repair their reputaiton but they don't know the gaps are huge and cant filed by filing a few Fake DMCA complaints against news website like networkeye.com, IndianExpress.com and DeccanChronicle.com...
The 4 fake DMCAs web activism explored are a piece of over twelve such DMCAs used to stifle the media, particularly in India. This crusade of evacuating focused on URLs reproachful of QNet scam and Michael Ferreira began in April 2016, is as yet going on.
Thanks to the web activism , who has investigated and revealed the report .
