Amway is a multi-level network marketing company, which was established in 1959 and is a member of U.S. Direct Sales Association.
Several members of U.S. Congress and richest elite are in the upper echelons of the scheme, which explains the position of U.S. lawmakers on pyramid marketing.
Multiple international Amway branches over the years had experienced legal pressure from local governments and had to change the rules of the game to comply with the laws or cease operations.
India’s authorities already acted against the scheme in 2005 and 2011 by multiple raids and seizures on local offices.
