Today I received an email regarding a web site called www.skincarescams.com. The web page is attributed to Stewart Carlson an Ex-Arbonne Consultant.

Stewart contends that Arbonne is not a scam but how it is sold is a scam. He also contends he knows of a secret about Arbonne that will allow others to purchase the product at a discount without an Arbonne membership. Basically this is done through Consultants who leave Arbonne, have stock they need to get rid of and sell it on Ebay at a discount.

But here are a few facts Stewart’s leaves out.

  1. It is against Arbonne’s Policy and Procedures to sell Arbonne products on Ebay.
  2. Since Stewart is an Ex-Arbonne Consultant he is no longer bound by Arbonne’s Policies and Procedures.
  3. Is it wise to purchase product from someone who does not honor the a signed agreement?
  4. Stewart does not mention that his product does nolonger has the Arbonne 45 day money back guarantee.
  5. Stewart does not mention that by purchasing from Ebay you will be missing out on product promotions and discounts that are only available from Arbonne through a registered Arbonne Consultant. An example of some of the benefits you would miss out on are:
      • RSVP: $700 of product for $350
      • Free Product: With orders of a certain value Arbonne allows you to select one free product.
      • 80% Discounts: For every $100 dollars ordered Arbonne gives you some products at an 80% discount.
      1. There is no way to know if the products on Ebay have been kept in a controlled environment to protect the ingredients.
      2. There is no way to know if the products are full containers.
      3. There is no way to know if these have been used as testers.
      4. Numerous items listed on the web site referenced by Stewart are discontinued items which means they are very old.
      5. In some cases these items are so old that they have not been sold by Arbonne for over two years.
      6. In other cases the product being sold has been replaced by Arbonne with a new product line that contains updated and improved formula and ingredients.
      7. According to the Arbonne Policies and Procedures front loading of product is not allowed.
      8. The fact that Ex-Arbonne Consultants have extra stock indicates they built their business by front loading.
      9. Front loading is not necessary when building an Arbonne business using group presentations or what some call the party method.
      10. Front loading is usually done with what is called the Arbonne Results Approach.

      In light of the above are you really coming out ahead? You are giving up a lot of benefits from Arbonne while increasing risk significantly.

      In light of the misleading facts, perhaps it is no mistake Stewart named his web site skincarescams.com. Then again maybe it was simply a Freudian slip on his part.

      A few examples of out dated products on Stewart Carlson’s referring web site.

      The following is the email I received regarding the www.skincarescam.com and “Is Arbonne a Scam?”

      Is Arbonne A Scam?

      Absolutely Not!

      But “The Way Arbonne is sold” Is!

      Read on to understand exactly what this means.

      Arbonne International produces Swiss skin care products that are legally
      sold all over the world. True scams attempt to trick people into
      investing in something that has no real product. Arbonne sells real
      products in the form of cosmetics, anti-aging products, skin care
      products, vitamins, nutritional supplements, skin protection products,
      weight loss products, and aromatic products.

      So, why is the way Arbonne is sold a scam?

      Short on time? Skip the explanation.
      Jump right to the solution

      <http://bit.ly/DiscountSkinCareProducts>

      See exactly how easy it is to buy Arbonne products and avoid the Arbonne
      Scam without an Arbonne Consultant or fees.

      You see, Arbonne Consultants tell you that only they can sell you
      Arbonne products for 35% off the retail price. But the truth is, you can
      buy Arbonne products for pennies and you don’t need an Arbonne
      Consultant. You don’t even need an annual Arbonne membership.

      Arbonne Consultants Faint

      Arbonne Consultant don’t want you to know this. They don’t want you to
      know you can buy brand new Arbonne cosmetics, anti-aging products, skin
      care products, vitamins, nutritional supplements, skin protection
      products, weight loss products, and aromatic products for a fraction of
      what an Arboone consultant will charge.

      You’ll can even locate those hard to find discontinued Arbonne products
      that you love.

      Learn How It All Works

      Here’s all you need to know to save big time when buying Arbonne
      products!

      Arbonne Consultants buy into a membership for the opportunity to sell
      Arbonne International products at a 35% discount off the retail price.
      This means they can sell the skin care products to you at retail and
      they pocket the difference. But that is just a one time sell.

      Arbonne Consultants want more than just a one time sell. They want YOU
      to become their customer for life so they can get repeat credit for
      everything you ever buy.

      Arbonne Consultants are trained to offer you their discount pricing to
      get you to place an order. Then they tell you how to save 35% with an
      annual Arbonne membership. They are trained to tell you that this is the
      only way to get the products without paying retail and it’s JUST NOT
      TRUE!

      Buy Online Now For Less

      You can get the EXACT SAME PRODUCTS ONLINE for half the price, sometimes
      less, any time you want. In fact, your Arbonne Consultant may be selling
      it online for less than what they are offering to you and they just
      aren’t telling anyone.

      You see, every single day there is an army of new people signing up to
      sell Arbonne, and there is another army of people who stop selling
      Arbonne.

      For those who stop selling, they are left with a closet or garage full
      of unsold products. These poor people need to recover some of the
      hundreds or thousands of dollars they have spent trying to build an
      Arbonne business. So they gladly sell their excess inventory of Arbonne
      products online for huge discounts.

      And That’s Where You SAVE Money!

      You can buy discount Arbonne products online right now for pennies on
      the dollar. You don’t need a consultant, and you absolutely don’t need
      an annual subscription.

      Now that you understand, take a look for yourself.

      It’s that easy.

      Sorry Arbonne Consultants, but someone had to tell it like it is.
