Lampe Berger Issue all around...

Lampe Berger Issue is everywhere, even whem I met two of my friends today separately in different time. The issue brought up was the same problem just like how this person below e-mail in to voice out. But, there are more than the issue of re-fund itself, which we here in LB Help will focus abit rather than the un-ethical uplines problems. Here goes the mail..

Dear Steven & LB Help,

After seeing all your blogs and Brand Malaysia blog, I think it is something that we should bring to the attention of the weaker mind of what this LB is all about. I attach below a story of LB which surrounds my friends and I since the LB things began spreading. I would appreciate if you keep my name anonymous. LB Help: Will do.

The story goes like this...

A friend of mine,AK joined Lampe Berger after some approach from another
friend of ours. AK borrowed some money (heard it's a 4 figure amount) from his girlfriend to invest in LB, even with his study loan unpaid. It's been almost 2 years since he joined. All our friends that I come across had been approached by him to join LB and seen him like a repellant.

Another friend, KV who was persuaded by him to joined, regretted. He told me that he felt he was conned by his best friend (AK) to fork out money using his mum's hard earn RM2,345. Since then, KV got less than half of his money back, quitted LB, hated and doesn't talk to AK since.

Recently, AK's girlfriend, CS of 5 years who lives together with him suddenly decided to leave KL and go work in Singapore, not breaking up with him but just to work there for more pay. We (AK's friends) were puzzled. Hence we approached her on her decision.

It was a sad story. She explained to us that since AK stopped his permanent job and joined LB full-time since 2 years ago, she is the only person that is the primary breadwinner. She has to pay for the rent of the apartment and most expenses at home. All AK could earn is from the freelance job that he do once or twice in a month.

CS who earns RM3,000 a month wasn't able to save any money from this salary considering that she still have a car installment to pay every month. Hence, 6 months ago she started looking for other company that would be able to offer her more somewhere in KL. She found a better offer. Best of all, she request and got the offer for AK to become a Junior Photographer, a higher ranking and higher pay in the same company. AK rejected the offer even without thinking.

CS was disappointed. Hence she job hunt for work in Singapore and got other offers. We also heard from CS that the money she borrow AK to invest in LB was her savings for their future home. She doesn't mind if AK would want to pursue his dream to get rich through LB. But AK wouldn't even want to at least contribute to their small living by accepting a permanent job that knock on his door.

When AK as CS on her reason to work in Singapore, CS would just say, "Can you afford a life right now?" It's not that CS is a big spender or anything. She's the most understanding and thrifty girl I've met. She never expected AK to return the money he borrowed or give her a good life, but just a normal life that they used to have even when he have to work 18 hours a day, with enough money to eat, watch movie and occasionally buy some stuff.

When we asked AK how does he feel since CS has to go, his reply was, "I'm going to put all my time in LB so that I can start to earn 4 figures and pick her back from Singapore next year".

Little does he know, CS decision to leave was a hard one for her because it's also the first step of their breaking up process as she had told us...

A lesson to all out there who is interested to join LB. Yes, there are people who gain and got wealthy because of it, but how many are there who got rich compare to those who joined and never got rich? Yes, they can drive a BMer, but do you think they still can pay for the installment 3 or 5 years down the road by using the money they earn in LB? If you come from a rich family, it is alright to get burnt with RM30k. But if you are not from a rich family, don't ever think of joining LB thinking that it is a "Get Rich Quick" scheme. Nothing comes easy in the world. Nothing comes free. You will end up with even more debt in the end.

If you think that by spending RM30k to join LB with your own hard earn money and lose it, then it's your own problem. But if you have to borrow RM30k to join LB, then you must think of your social responsibilities to your friends and family.

p/s: Pardon me for having to keep all the name anonymous. Afterall, it's other people's family problem, we are not fit to critic but only to bring the sense to others out there.

LB Help: As promised
Look how such problem can ruin a good relationship and I remember someone asking when is the last time anyone buys a gift to their love ones.

It is all in a man's ego. Agrees?

it's really sad to be hearing all these kind of stuffs.

some of u might accuse LB Help of making up stories, but heck, it actually happened, whether u want to believe it or not.

there are many other cases goes unreported, despite ONE actually came out in "The Star". when i found that link again i'll post it here. the story of this case also were mentioned in Mack's blog, Brand New Malaysian.

it's about how a daughter use emotional blackmail to pressure her mother to come up with rm30k for her investment into a direct selling company.

sure, someone would say, it might be any other direct selling company since it did not mention any names in the report?

well, name me any other direct sales company that requires, specifically, Rm2k+ for joining fee and further ask for investment of rm30k?

isn't it obvious enough?

Hello Everyone!!!,

I'm Ah Wai from MLM. Such a nice post from all of you :)

I admit sometimes the MLMers always use this kind of tactic of luring "potential" people into their business. Eg. N-stream, Synergy, Herbalife, Lampeberger, Amway, Diamond, eCosway, IMagic, NuSkin, CNI and etc.

I'm also ex-anti MLMer just like you all. Proud to be antiMLMers. "MLM is conbusiness" and "StudioTraffic is PONZI SCHEME!" Hehehe... :)

But, AT LAST i realise in this World of Events..."Capitalism"


Sami Vellu, politicians, MPSJ, MPPJ, MBI, dato, datuks, Thaksin, Arroyo, Suharto, *me* and etc also CONNING people $$$ only what...

I only take little con $$$ while the *people mentioned above* CON the "rakyat" & taxpayer's $$$ BIG TIME! SO what is the FUSS?

I con my lecturer before, i cheat on my exam before, i Ponteng class before, i cheated during SNOOKER, i cheated my fren before, hell i even con my GF before. Hahaha. What is the BIG FUSS?

As i say, EITHER YOU CON PEOPLE or PEOPLE CON YOU...Its a survival skill!

Its better for us, "the little guy with no $$$" to con little $$$, than "the BIG SHOT GOVERNMENT officials" to con the rakyat $$$.


I'm DAMN sure the GOvernment DOn't MIND this little $$$ one.

AIyah, we group together as a group of "hardcore anti-lampeberger", then we charge those people who is also "anti-lampeberger" RM 100 each. Then, we also make LOTS of $$$.

Simple calculation,

RM 100 x 10,000 member (ANTI-LAMPEBERGER) = RM 1,000,000!!!!

Then, we BUY Ferrari and BMW to drive to Menara HLA, park at the FRONT and BURN them. This we show that we also can make $$$ ma!!!

DAMN good IDEA...!!!

WE group together ok...WE KEEP in touch! Malaysia BOLEH!

Remember, my name is AH Wai from SYN DCHL Lampeberger :)

I'm neither supporter or anything else to SYN ... But I do think SYN need to take some actions ... either to explain or to against ...
We are pepople in the middle. I think most of the people can think wisely ... Nothing will sound good if it has already been told bad for a thousand times !!

For both sides, I hear more opposing sounds here in blogger, I wondered how a SYN member will be if they could have see this page ?!

Everyone have right to speak ...
But Truth not really always reveal at the end ....

Do something LB buffs !!!
Prove something anti-LB buffs !!

One Man's Perception said...

Dear wiseman,
If you need proof, just drop by or email me.
Yes, notthing will sounds good after flooded with a lot of negative information. But, tell me wiseman, what is your perception?


Lim Zack said...

my friend was soo convinced with this LB stuff, she decided to invest 30k on it on the pretext that it is 90% money back within six months. What she didnt know is that her upline that has recruited her pick 30k of products for her without discussing with her the differences of the products, thus her upline pick products that are not refundable without her knowledge at all so she could not get a refund if she decided to quit within 6 months. Can someone explain this to me? how evil could this be?

its really sad to hear that greed can even destroy the strongest relationship some people have. please create more awareness among us malaysians so that more people wont fall into this trap.

i really pity for CS who has worked so hard in her relationship. hope all the best to her to go on with her life.
