    Is MLM another name for Pyramid scheme?

    I have a friend who sells products she loves but her motivation is to recruit other people to sell so she makes money and so do the people who signed her up.  Isn't this is a pyramid scheme?

    Yup. MLM stands for "Multi Level Marketing," which in some circles is also known as a "pyramid scheme" ...

      Oddly enough, I've found that people who are involved in MLM's tend to get very nervous and offended if you ask them, "is this some sort of pyramid scheme?"
      "Oh, NO! NEVER! This is a legitimate marketing opportunity!"

      Too true.  That's what I asked and got a very defensive reply.
