The hidden camera’s from the reporter showed what really happened during close doors with distributors.
With more than 100,000 distributors alone from the US, business with this company is booming.
Despite of federal investigation and allegation of critics. They said that Herbal Life is an illegal pyramid scheme which Herbal life denied.
It produces a wide range of health products that are sold only by its distributor.
The company is still under a court order not to make or false misleading representation of products for health benefits.
On the training material of Herbal Life, they were instructed to not tell customers that products can treat or cure any diseases.
During the investigation of ABC news with hidden cameras. Herbal Life distributors vouch that their product can cure different kinds of diseases like heart failure and cancers.
According to some critics:
“Participants in the Herbalife scheme, the distributors, ‘obtain their monetary benefits primarily from recruitment rather than the sale of goods and services to the consumer.”
