OT - Letting Down Pyramid Schemers

Submitted by Blazefire on April 30th, 2010 at 12:57 PM


One of my coworkers, a nice guy I really like, is all of a sudden trying to sell me on some Pyramid Scheme, like Amway but not Amway. Worse than that, at first I thought he was just inviting me over to hang out, before I figured out what he was after, so I agreed.

How, exactly, do I tell a nice guy who I like working with that I have to see and deal directly with every day that I'm not interested in signing on and subsequently recruiting my own family and friends?

It's all a scam. 

It's your money, do the research and you'll know more than any "financial planner" who has a sure thing.  If it's a sure thing the market has already priced it in. 

It's funny because I actually went to the interview a few years ago when I was also unemployed and they offered me a job and I was like "no...  none of my family really has any money to blow on this shit and all of my friends are poor college students so I don't think that this will work for me".  He quickly stopped pressuring me.

Look him in the eyes and smile.

Ask him if he has accepted Jesus Christ as his savior.  Ask if he has a personal relationship with God.  Ask if he has ever felt the Holy Ghost within him.

Invite him to church with you but ask him if he is scared of snakes.  If he asks what day, tell him you go to church every night because you have been reborn, and you want the same for him.  Tell him that he needs to go before the congregation and confess ALL of his sins.  (There will be a LOT of them, assure him of it)

Open up the Bible and ask him to read a few passages.  Ask him how those apply to a sinner.

Get it all on film.  Put it on You Tube.
