Is Vemma A Pyramid Scheme?

Vemma is NOT a Pyramid Scheme

Some call VEMMA a pyramid or a pyramid scheme because they don’t fully understand it. They have no other way to communicate their opinion into words. They are unaware of the terms like affiliate marketing, social network marketing or multi-level marketing.

To elaborate, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of a pyramid scheme: a usually illegal operation in which participants pay to join and profit mainly from payments made by subsequent participants. A pyramid scheme is usually started by a con-man that will ask for an investment (could be of multiple thousands of dollars) in exchange for no real product or service, therefore giving no real value in return.
