Real talk, each of us probably knows of at least one networking agent who h͎a͎s͎ tried to convince us that we need them in our lives. Many of them offer products for health a͎n͎d͎ beauty but some just want to scam the heck of us.
Because of pyramiding scams, networking h͎a͎s͎ since had a bad reputation in the Philippine market, thus, a networker’s presence is deemed unlikeable.
As the number of people involved in this business is growing, they now try to find more ways of attracting new investors by using social media. After all, social media is now the most used method of communication a͎n͎d͎ thousa͎n͎d͎s of people can be reached with just one post
However, not all people can be easily swayed with the promise of a better financial life by just investing a small amount of money. Just like this Balut vendor who w͎a͎s͎ offered to join a networking company.
On a Facebook post that went viral, an agent sent a message to a Facebook friend a͎n͎d͎ a͎s͎k͎e͎d͎ about his job. The recipient answered that he is a balut vendor.
The agent then took the chance to ask if the vendor wanted ‘extra income’ because if he does, he will help him out
He offers a better life with just an investment amounting to PHP 6,980 to which the Balut vendor politely declined to say that he does not have such amount of money.
The networker then replied that the Balut vendor is missing his once in a lifetime chance to have a better life which is the usual mantra of those who join networking. The Balut vendor then a͎s͎k͎e͎d͎ if all those who joined networking had better lives. The recruiter confidently said yes.
