Just because you’re paranoid, don’t mean they’re not out to get ya

I have a crazy uncle.  His name is Uncle Phil and he is a paranoid schizophrenic.  He believes outrageous things like his neighbors are stealing his brainwaves thru his electic outlets.  He believes that he can’t walk unless he tapes his legs with duct tape sometimes.  He has a fear of water so outrageous that it includes the fear of showering.  One Christmas, he ended up running around in the snow, completely naked, screaming for Jesus.

He is so afraid of the abnormal, that he doesn’t really have time to concern himself with the everyday concern for oddities.  Because of this, he became a victim in his own home.  A runaway that lived nearby, broke into Uncle Phil’s house and cut out part of his couch to hide in there.  The teenager stayed in there and when Uncle Phil came home, he jumped out and scared him down into the basement.  He locked Uncle Phil down there and then stole his checkbooks and his car.  He took Uncle Phil’s car to a nearby dealership where he was able to trade it in for another vehicle.  No, the teenager’s name was not on the title.  Nor did the teen have the title.  But it would seem as though some dealerships do not care about such details.  The kid wrote forged check after forged check and skipped out of the state (in his new wheels).  The cops finally found him and he was brought to trial.  Poor Uncle Phil.  He was so worried about demons talking to him from his TV that he forgot to worry about actual living people that want to take advantage of you.

The following thread reminded me greatly of Uncle Phil.  And it reminded me that even if you are paranoid, someone else may very well be out to get you.  As Duh would say so beautifully…  Paranoia, cha cha cha

Can Unitnet track your visits to their websites???? Reason being, I just had a director contact me about my visits (said I visit a lot) and wanted to know who I was.  Hmmm, big brother at it’s finest.

Do you log-in?  I guess that’s how they got your e-mail address.

And yes, they can see what pages you looked at and what time you looked at them — it’s all saved with your IP address/login name

Big Brother indeed!

wow, that is big brotherish. (is that a word?) Anyway, I think they do because on the board that shows where you have access, it shows what you accessed and when. Maybe that is how?

I sign in so I can see the website. Wow, puts a whole new spin on the “paranoia”. When I had a unitnet site, this wasn’t available. This change must have come with the upgrades.

I also wondered if they could see me when I logged into their unitnet sites.  I occasionally visit my SDs website for a good laugh, but thats about it.  All the flash add ons made me  Seeing Stars

Just a year ago, directors were in competiion to get hits on their sites.  It was a prestigious thing to be in the Top Visited Sites!  What a difference a year can make!   Too Funny  This is a bit of a sign of paranoia!   Pigtails  Cool  Pigtails

 Computer  Putting on webmistress hat here … any website’s operator can see what IP address  requested pages are sent to, because webservers keep track of those things.  That’s not much help tracing an individual, because they usually end in a big pile of users all sharing one access modem at an ISP. 

IF you have to log in to access a site, the website software can connect the login to a specific IP address and track it that way.  Splitting it out by which director’s site you visited and giving the logs to the director isn’t difficult.  It’s fairly accurate, but not foolproof.

It’s also absolutely hilarious that they are even doing this … is the level of  white-knuckled suspicion getting to paranoia already?

    ok, I see that Pink Lawnmower is still hitting the crackpipe over there. I was guessing in the pool that she’d be one of the next to go. SIGH

    PINKLAWNMOWER: can you get a clue and leave PT soon please? preferably before PUR gets thrown out, so at least one of my predictions here can be true.
    LOL

  12. FFPT/Sickie –

    Beauty is only skin deep, but stupidity is to the core. Now if Tracy would just shut up. If I wanted to hear from an ass, I’d fart.

    In an effort to try and prove why Mary Kay Cosmetics isn’t a pyramid and isn’t like those other bad companies, the author of this document may have inadvertantly done the opposite.

    This looks like it may have been written by the Mary Kay legal department, but I can’t be sure. The questions this documents suggest you ask should really be asked of Mary Kay! The truthful answers would be really revealing! It also makes several assertions about the Mary Kay opportunity that seem to fly in the face of reality. (Ex. You can’t buy your way up… Oh yes you can!)

    This is a noble effort at proving why Mary Kay is better than other companies, but I wonder if you’ll agree with my opinion that it actually does a whole lot to prove that Mary Kay is, indeed a pyramid and a business scam.

    Why Mary Kay Is Not a Pyramid or Multi-Level Marketing Plan

    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Mary Kay has many “admirers.” Over the years, Mary Kay has attracted the attention of many new direct selling companies, some of whom attempt short cuts or attempt to duplicate elements of our program. They may not have the resources to develop a quality product line that can sustain a broad consumer base, they open with a big recruiting promotion with dubious claims, reach a peak quickly and end up battered by regulatory investigations or in bankruptcy. Many lack the retail product sales to support their commission structures, which eventually causes collapse. The following comments are intended to help you sort fact from fiction, it shares our facts, and it will help you as you are asked questions about your business.

    “If It Sounds Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is!”

    “Once in a lifetime opportunity!” Ground floor, window of opportunity. A legitimate business should be as good next year as it is this year. Your company has a 40 year growth record, stability, and financial security.

    “Make up to 25% Commissions!” This pales in comparison to a Consultant and a Director’s earnings. Ask them how many levels of recruits must one have to earn that commission percentage.

    “Make $40,000 monthly in your spare time!” Maybe a lottery ticket, but rarely at the beginning of a business. Look at how many people are earning that kind of money, how many recruits would one need to earn that amount, what can a beginner expect in the first year or two?

    “You don’t have to sell anything! Just recruit.” Legitimate companies base their businesses on actual product sales to consumers. Pyramid schemes pay a “bounty” for signing up new recruits. The pool of new recruits eventually dries up. Retail sales are key to supporting the commissions and incentives. Often, women are left to package the products and men are the ones to recruit. Also, they will give their organization a different name from the parent company or will not clearly invite you to listen to XYZ’s company presentation, for fear that it is a “turn-off.” We are proud of and always say who we are and what we do.

    “Revolutionary New Products!” Words such as “leading edge and natural” can be inviting, but few ingredients can be 100% natural or new. Does the company manufacture its own products under its own control or does it rely on outside contracts? Can all claims be substantiated? Is there a 100% satisfaction guarantee?

    What the Terms Mean

    Multilevel: A marketing plan with several tiers of participants through which products and commissions pass. Only those at the top buy directly from the company.

    Participants “downline” purchase products from “upline” distributors. The discount is determined by a person’s level in the organization.

    Network Marketing. A recent term, may have been coined to counteract multilevel. You “network sales through an organization of recruits rather than through personal
    efforts.

    Pyramid. These are illegal. Large numbers of people at the bottom of the pyramid pay money to a few at the top for the chance to advance to the top and profit from payments of others who might join later.

    Career Path. Some companies claim we are “saturated.” This year alone, almost 40 women became National Sales Directors. There is plenty of room at the top for women who possess the commitment, drive and willingness to work. There are rewards and recognition at every step of our career path, not just at the very top.

    Product Quality. We have been the Best Selling Brand in America for 9 years and intend to remain so because of the generation of new young women beginning to use our products and because of the millions of dollars invested in our manufacturing and distribution centers. We manufacture almost every product ourselves to assure the highest standards of quality. Product safety, customer satisfaction, guarantees and programs are in place to insure customer loyalty for years to come.

    Review
    Mary Kay’s business is selling products, not “business opportunities.” We are not in business to recruit women to buy products from us, but to buy and sell for herself. No “investment” is required, only the purchase of a showcase. No sales force position may be “bought” by the payment of fees or the purchase of large inventories.

    Everyone begins the same way, as a Beauty Consultant and advances solely on the strength of her recruiting and sales abilities.

    There are no levels of wholesalers between the company and consumer. There is only one wholesale sale from the company to the consultant and one retail sale from the consultant to the customer. Everyone, regardless of her status in the sales organization, purchases products directly from the company based on the same discount schedule, for resale to the consumer.

    Mary Kay guarantees in writing that any consultant who terminates her relationship with the company may return any new and unused products purchased within one full year prior to return and receive a 90% buy-back, unlike some companies that either offer no buy-back or 30, 60, or 90 day offers.

    All commissions are paid directly to consultants and directors. In many other companies, checks are written back and forth from the distributors, and no relationship is present between the main company and its distributors until a certain size organization is gained.

    The Mary Kay Legal Department can assist you with any concerns!
