How Bo Short WorksBO Short knows the game. When people are recruited into Shaklee's marketing pyramid or MLM, they are given a sense of hope and excitement with unusual stories about shaklee retailers who became "wealthy" and independent by marketing to their family and friends. Read what the FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION published about them. To prevent a lawsuit from a company like Shaklee or Bo Short's Pinnacle Group within Shaklee, we must clairify that a "scam" is defined here as in dictionaries simply as a "deceptive act" and that Shaklee has not yet met the legal criteria for a "pyramid." Despite what it does to people, and despite the financial losses incurred by what victims routinely claim are deceptive practices, Shaklee gives money to MLM lobby groups who donate to government entities, so this continues to be legal and people continue to lose money. Some websites imply that Shaklee is a scam or that Bo Short is a seasoned con-artist, but you can make up your mind based on the evidence presented here. It will take about 45 minutes to read and verify the links. Research shows that young people are particularly vulnerable to their upbeat sales pitch but the Pinnacle group and Bo Short lure people of any age with charismatic and likable distributors that seem to radiate Bo Short-style success. Fast forward to the outcome and you can often find victims of Shaklee or of Bo Short, feeling cheated and down several thousand dollars after having isolated themselves from friends and family with a company sales pitch routine. Victims of social marketing scams seem to end up with fewer friends and less money than when they joined. That is the base of the pyramid. According to some victims of Bo Short that have contributed to this site, deception is a reality of Shaklee.

What could someone possibly say to convince you to join an MLM like this or to join Bo Short? Remember that smart people fall for this just as easily as anyone else, but that begs the question, "How?" For legal purposes, we can't write that the video below shows a con-artist teaching marketers how to be better con artists. Instead we will ask, "Does the video below of Bow Short show a con artist, or someone who is your friend?" Is the "Shaklee scam" real? How about Bo Short? Why does Bo Short do this if he is already rich?

Losing Your Friends, Gaining Bo ShortBefore signing on with an MLM like Shaklee, or with Bo Short, you need to think about how you value other people and how Bo Short would value you. After the dishonest sugestions about the money you'll earn and the need to buy-in, a common reason that product-based pyramids are labeled as scams, centers on the way they encourage you to treat your friends. Victims of Bo Short, Shaklee and other MLMs can isolate themselves from their social groups very quickly. When you watch Bo Short in the video under the "Realizing the Truth" heading, it's important to think about what your friends would do and how they would feel if you began to incorporate a marketing pitch into your friendships. Of course, most people lose money in MLMs rather than make it, but when it's all done, it comes as a surprise to some that they have lost friends as well. Thanks Bo Short. It's painful and it requires many apologies to pick up the pieces. Read the cult view of Shaklee.
T he Shaklee company has some misguiding if not unlawful practices regarding refunds. When victims call 925-734-3636 to speak to "earning opportunity support" for a refund, they get 4-8 minutes of Shaklee ad recordings followed by a recording that asks for a telephone number so that the company can call him or her. There are documented cases of refunds taking up to two months and 10 hours of hold time. If you are considering becoming a Shaklee distributor or joining forces with Bo Short, know the facts and make an informed choice; don't drink the Koolaid right away. Put it this way, the Federal Trade Comission published information that seems to indicate that you may lose the money you invest in this.
"I'm in a similar position with my Dad. He's doing Shaklee sh**, where you buy their products .. and get other people to sign on as a 'gold member' and then they buy the products and they as well as he make profit. Yeah....it doesn't work. At all. He keeps putting money INTO Shaklee but never gets any back. There's no reasoning with them, because he's going to think that you're not supportive of his investments. Keep your mouth shut, and let him ride it out. He'll learn the hard way, unfortunately." A special thanks to Bo Short for making this page easy to write.
