Amway Quixtar Class Action Settlement of Class Action Lawsuit Over Alleged Pyramid Scheme

Amway Quixtar Class Action Settlement Of Class Action Lawsuit Against Amway Brought By Amway Distributors Or Independent Business Operators Over Alleged Illegal Pyramid Scheme.

A class action settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Amway, Corp. f/k/a Quixtar Inc. (“Amway” or “Quixtar” or “Defendant”) pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (styled Pokorny v. Quixtar, Civil Action Case No. 07-00201), alleging, among other things, that Amway and its top distributors operated a fraudulent and illegal pyramid scheme that allegedly induced Amway distributors or Independent Business Owners (“IBOs”) to invest in products to sell and allegedly made false promises that Amway distributors could earn big profits, according to Amway Quixtar class action settlement news reports.

The Amway Quixtar class action settlement reportedly includes former Amway Quixtar distributors or Independent Business Owners IBOs since 2003 as settlement class members.  The Amway Quixtar class action settlement reportedly provides, among other things, that Amway will pay $34 million in cash and provide $22 million worth of products to settle the lawsuit.

If the Amway settlement is approved, former Amway distributors or Amway Independent Business Owners can reportedly file claims to receive up to $100 worth of Amway products, with shipping costs for those products coming from the cash settlement pool and former Amway distributors who lost more than $2,500 can reportedly make a claim for cash payments of up to $15,000 to cover their losses.

    nosotros compramos nuestra membresia para ser parte de esta compania y metimos a varias personas que compraron tambien la membresia y metimos pedidos de productos y asistimos a varios eventos donde se tenian que pagar $20.00 o mas igual las personas que invitabamos y nunca recibimos un beneficio de todo lo que prometian.que porcierto estos productos eran muy costosos.solo perdimos nuestro tiempo y nuestro dinero.que se haga justicia .

  • Valerie April 19, 2012, 3:02 pm

    I was a IBO with Quixtar years ago and I went to a weekend conference and they told us that we would make big if we recruit people and I did that and sold products. I go a check for $5 and I was mad.

  • FREDDIE P April 19, 2012, 4:44 pm

    I was also told if I recruit member,bring them to meeting ,pay to attend,order these products,I would make Big money. the only check I ever recieved was $10.00 ,not to think of the $300.00 we spent to become an IBO,Ha,Ha, and all the products we purchased and sold.??

      hi shari the claim form is located on the porkony site when you look up quixtar

  • maria salgado y javier solache April 20, 2012, 12:16 pm

    estamos felices porque comfiamos en la ley y sabemos que se ara justicia porque casi exijian que fueramos veztidos de traje y como podiamos nos comprabamos la ropa ellos decian que teniamos que estar presentables lo cual en los eventos que asistimos notamos que la mayoria de las personas eran personas de apariencia humilde con deseo de trabajar igual que nosotros. sobre nuestros gastos exactos no lo se pero lo poco que recuerdo es$2.800 a 3.600 entre membresia. eventos y ropa.porque todo lo que se comsumia en los eventos eran solo productos de la compania y los teniamos que comprar con nuestro dinero.

  • griselda/roman deltoro April 20, 2012, 1:41 pm

    nosotros eramos tambien IBO de quixtar eso de q gana una uno dinero era mentira y estafadores no es posible ni justo q nosotros gastabamos dinero asta de $300 dllrs al mes si no ganabamos nada tambien asta producto bien caro si niciquiera no ganamos nada de dinero solo gastando nuestro dinero y tiempo y pagando para las reuniones de entrada y metiendo asta gente como piramide asiendo asta llamadas a esas personas solo por creernos de las personas de quixtar q ibamos aser diamantes y ganar dinero y cual pura mentiras mas de q recibimos tan solo un checke de $10.00 eso fue todo y nonotros gastando mucho no es pocible y llendo disque a los inventos.hahaha puro fraude.

  • Christine Barriball April 20, 2012, 7:23 pm

    I am so happy to hear that this is really happening. I had lost my job and felt that the opportunity to become an IBO with Quixtar was a chance to start over. I was somewhat dubious as I had heard of the Amway scam from years prior however, the individuals that recruited me were and still are respectable buisiness owners and fine upstanding people. I have not been in contact since I left Quixtar. I never did get answers to my curious questions about Amway involvement with Quixtar. I wonder if they knew? Everything I bought to build my buisiness was so expensive that I had a hard time to sell it and suffered financially but still believed “The Dream” that YES I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL. Hello! Now my problem is that I have no records of my purchases and obviously am not going to contact these folks. Is there a company # or address that I can find out what I need to know of my financial business with Quixtar so I can fill out the claim form?

    • nalea May 6, 2012, 10:07 am

      you go to quixtar and scroll down and you will see the porkony v. quixtar action settlelment and the claim form is located their

  • Catalina& angie tirazona April 20, 2012, 10:05 pm

    Yeah, we really thought it was a dream come when we became members of Quixtar. We went to almost all the meetings and convention that Quixtar had spending quite a bundle of our savings just learn and experience the dream, but found out later that the dream seems unreachable. We’re glad that the real truth finally came out. Thanks to the people who had the courage and guts to fight for what is roght. Where is the form to file for a claim.

    me alegro de recibir esta noticia ,espero se aga justicia y podamos obtener veneficios ,ya que perdimos tiempo dinero y nos frustramos cuando no pudimos realizar lo que se nos ofrecio.y descuidamos mucho de nuestros hijos y es justo recivir algo para poder darles un viaje de los que siempre les prometimos , el cual se los pudimos aver dado con todo lo que invertimos…..

  • ariel dominguez April 21, 2012, 6:48 pm

    que bueno que alguien pudo tomar la iniciativa para poder recibir todo el dinero que perdimos , espero pronto se resuelva y todos recivamos lo justo por todo lo que tuvimos que aser y pasar, sonamos en grande y la realidad solo fue una amarga pesadilla

  • maricela April 21, 2012, 8:15 pm

    espero q se haga justicia porque siempre pense q esta compania solo se aprovechaba d los .q tratamos de salir adelante ademas de q comprabamos sus productos muy caros

  • ana del rosario y miguel martinez April 22, 2012, 1:22 pm

    nosotros eramos miembros de la compania pero tuvimos que dejar ese negocio porque los prometidos por ellos nunca los vimos hechos realidad y a demas los productos eran demasiado caro y la gente no queria comprarlos y decidimos dejar el negocio porque era mas la perdida de tiempos que la ganancia

  • leticia romero April 22, 2012, 10:49 pm

    yo tambien compre mi membresia y es verdad k te piden vistas de traje, y si la mayoria de la gente es humilde que cuando se pone un traje es porque asi lo exigen pero no nos sentimos comodos, que bueno que ahora se hara justicia. y yo todavia tengo productos que no pude vender por que es muy caro, ellos te dicen que vas a ganar mucho te hacen muchas promesas y no se vale porque mucha gente mete sus ahorros y al ultimo se quedan como yo con los productos……

  • gonzalo garcia April 23, 2012, 2:36 pm

    que gachos yo meti jente y les dure comprando durante 6 meses nunca mire como eran las ganansias pero lo mal que me mire con mis amigos que meti que aora ni me ablan bien por la demanda aber si se les quita lo sinberguensa

  • Maria Molina April 23, 2012, 3:09 pm

    Yo pague mi subscripción y nunca me dieron de alta, ni pude comprar para mi uso personal. Como se trata de una pirámide , nunca pude saber bajo quien estaba. Espero que quienes si invirtieron mas que yo, puedan tener un beneficio.

    • sergio sanchez April 26, 2012, 12:45 am

      busca ala peersona q te invito y dile q te debuelba tu dinero pero antes q nada informate de las ganancias q puedes obtener en amway si tu pones empeño dedicasion y mas q nada ganas de salir adelante tu puedes por q todos podemos haser aLGO POR LOS DEMAS Q DIOS NO SE QUEDA CON TU TRABAJO Y ESFUERZO SIEMPRE Y CUANDO LO HAGAS CON AMOR.

  • misael ysara fontanez April 24, 2012, 9:21 am

    nosotros nos hicimos miembros de la corporacion por muchos anos y llevamos otros mas para que fueran miembros y gastamos muchos dinero y nunca obtuvimos ningun beneficio. Esperamos que se hagan justicia por la perdida de tiempo y de dinero, le agradecemos su tiempo en leer esta carta y esperamos que sean justo al respecto.

  • S.Persad April 24, 2012, 2:11 pm

    they made it sound so exciting and worth it.I paid $3000.00 to register, not to mention $40.00 to attend every meeting and when i question” y do we have to pay to attend their meetings?,the so called Rubies or Diamonds,whatever they called themselves could not give me a reasonable answer.No refreshments,not even bottled water..Selling their products was really stressful because no one wanted to buy such expensive products……which of course they didn’t mention before i registered…

  • S.Persad April 24, 2012, 2:51 pm

    I live on the Island of Trinidad in the West Indies,there are people here who are IBO’S and who i registered with and made payments too, I received a notice about the settlement,but when i try to fill out the Claim Form on line i cannot submit it because we dont have Zip Codes,Cities and States…what do i do…?

  • twana howard April 24, 2012, 4:00 pm

    I gave them a whole lot of money for a$10 check and they wanted me to do was to keep doing it for more and more but seem like the more i spent and sole the check didn’t get much better.

  • twana Sanders April 24, 2012, 4:06 pm

    amway take your money and get richer.

  • GINJA April 25, 2012, 9:49 pm

    It is about time! The more I did the more I did not receive. We went to so many meetings and meetings in my home.,I feel viloated! The check(s) never came to us. We (IBOs) made them rich!!!!!!

  • sergio sanchez April 26, 2012, 12:38 am

    lamento decirles q toda esa jente q dice q amway no funciona y q solo es un fraude. mmmm estan totalmente hequivocados su equipo de apollo no supo guiarlor o ustedes no se dejaron guiar ni poner el trabajo q tenian q poner un negosio de mas de 50 años de existencia no es para hablar mal de un multinivel q esta muy pero muy por encima de cualquier otro multinivel q pena q no hayan podido haser un negocio tan exitoso por mas de 50 años de existencia….

  • Victor A. Gonzalez April 26, 2012, 5:19 pm

    Entiendo que el tratado que se realize con el tribunal debe ser justo para los IBO que resultamos afectados ya que algunos debido a donde viven y la situacion economica que tienen les permite poder acseder mejor a algun proceso en el tribuna.Todos los que entraron como IBO querian progresar por sus familias y fueron embaucados por igual .El acuerdo actual solo va a favoreser a unos pocos y no seria justo porque todoa saben a la fecha en que cada uno de los que decidieron terminar de ser IBO al no ver progreso no podra de ninguna manera provar lo gastos incurridos deberia para hacer justicia el tribunal otorgar un pago fijo para todos y luego verificar alguna perdida adicional de otros,TODOS PERDIMOS POR IGUAL

  • sue May 1, 2012, 10:56 am

    My ex husband and I were IBO and I contribute the downfall of our finances and subsequently our marriage to Quixtar. They filled us with dreams of what could be; only if you follow the pyramid. I once asked wasn’t that the pyramid plan that was illegal and was told by the IBO that brought us in that it was not a pyramid. My husband pushed me and I got imvolved in the skin care of the business. I had to take,and pay for classes that to ensure I knew what products to reccommend to clients. I also had to rent a machine that showed problem areas of the skin so you could show women proper ways to care for their problems. I feel as though Quixtar robbed me….not only of money but of a life that I was happy with until my husband was lured into being an IBO. I hope that no one else will ever have to suffer the way I did because of these liars and scam artists.

  • teodoro y brianda acosta May 9, 2012, 2:34 pm

    yo teodoro acosta y mi esposa brianda tambien cometimos el mismo error de comprar membrecia para esta compania de amway y tambien compramos muchos productos muy caros por cierto renovamos 2 veces la menbrecia y nunca recibimos nada de todo lo que nos ofreciero por los supuestos lideres siempre fuimos a muchas reuniones y siempre habia que pagar para asistir a cada reunion esto a sido siempre un robo de esta compania hojala y si se pueda hacer mucho mas para que todos los que un dia creimos que seria una buena manera de salir adelante se nos iciera justicia y nos reembolsaroan todo lo que gastamos porque yo y mi esposa en lo personal asta mi casa perdi en aquel entonces porque por continuar metiendo mas y mas pedidos asta nuestra casa tuvimos que dejar

  • Patricia L Calim May 14, 2012, 3:00 pm

    My son in law and I both became Amway Dealers. It turned out all they wanted you to do was buy and go to meetings. I am retired and was looking for extra income to supplement my social security. That never happened. I do like their products, but there has to be a better way. They won’t let you put them in stores where people would be more apt to purchase them.

  • Maricela Tovar May 21, 2012, 2:00 pm

    Hola, mi esposo y yo nos hicimos socios hace como 20 anos cuando salio en Mexico y fuimos a las juntas, como dicen todos, tenias que pagar hasta por el agua que te tomabas y como si no fuera poco el invitado tambien te lo cobraran. Desgraciadamente es un producto caro y la gente no lo compraba, ademas que la inversion que se hacia no te la redituaban.
    Y despues de muchos anos nos volvimos a enrolar pero aquie en los USA; Quixtar era su nombre aqui en USA, paguamos nuevamente el kit hicimos compras por casi 5 anos pero desgraciadamente el producto aunque es bueno es demaciado caro y el mismo problema; no te redituaban gran cosa.
    Nos han estado enviando notificaciones acerca de la demanda pero no sabemos si somos candidatos para entrar en esta demanda porque no nos acordamos de nuestro numero de socio.
    Por favor alguien que nos diga cual es el siguiente paso.
    Gracias y suerte para todos.

  • Ruben Valencia May 22, 2012, 12:47 pm

  • Elizabeth May 23, 2012, 11:56 am

    My husband and I started Quixtar February last year. We went to the Dream Night dinner at the Hilton in SeaTech. It was a really nice dinner. They were talking about all the wonderful things that could happen financially joining Amway. I did go out trying to recriut people and have home parties. The products are too expensive. Most people couldn’t or didn’t want to spend that much money on the products. The shipping was fine. When it comes down to it. Don’t make promises you can’t keep and get people’s hope’s up. We quit last year and did not get a refund like they promise.

  • Jose Bedolla May 24, 2012, 2:46 pm

    yo fui invitado por un companiero donde trabajaba,me la puso bien bonito todo,pero apesar de que asisti a varias reuniones,compre la membrecia,y el producto que viene con ella,peor no quise seguir porque se me iso execcivo los precios de los productos y ya no quise seguir,so lo di por perdido todo,pero me llego un aviso de la demanda colectiva y pues quisiera saber que prosede?

  • Alisha St. Louis June 3, 2012, 7:45 pm

    I live in the West Indies, on an island call Trinidad and Tobago. There are people on my island as well who are IBO’s and were registered and made payments. We tried to work hard in building our pyramid, by recruiting as much as we can to reap the benefits which seemed promising at time. Including myself as well as others paid for a lot of people to enter the circle which have lead to broken promises.They were really convincing of all benefits when they visited our island and as myself everyone hope this would have been a avenue to uplift our lifestyle, failure, only empty promises and disappointments. I received a notice about the settlement but when i try to fill out the claim form on line it cannot be submitted cause we have no zip codes and cities from the U.S. What am i to do, i need a better clarification of what is expected of me to do and to make sure that a mistake like this doesn’t happen to me again.

  • Heather Farrell/Vilbert Paul June 8, 2012, 8:10 am

    we were recruited to be ibo’s,to buy products,like books, tapes,vitamins,supplements,to recruit other ibo’s.We went to a Convention in Virgina. Where i had to pay over $300.00,pay to sleep over, and did not even get my money’s worth. Pay to join, and had to reply over and a next payment.

    Personas de esa corporacion en su momento visitaban mi casa, insistiendo que me hiciera miembro, al final termine por aceptar y comprar la membresia de IBO, pero en verdad nunca tuvimos un beneficio, al contrario compramos productos que por cierto nos parecieron los precios muy altos, al final decidimos no continuar, tal vez no invertimos tanto como otras personas, pero al final, que se haga justicia, no es justa que personas estafadoras se enriquezcan a costa de personas trabajadoras que solo quieren progresar.

  • debra hoisington July 9, 2012, 8:53 pm

    a team of ibo’s bothered me until I couldn’t say no,anymore.Being a single mother of 4 children I was very scared to give up $ 300.00 in the first place. Anyway,after I joined their team,they said I needed to go to their meetings.Little did I know,that I had to pay to get into every meeting.I saw through the scam after I got a bunch of amway products, from the money I gave them, to own my own business, (“that someone else had picked out”!) I never received anything that said, that I was a business owner, so I just bowed out!

  • Susan A. Delgado July 16, 2012, 10:36 am

    I also feel this should have been done years ago. I never seemed to make anything and sold lots. My first husband and I were in Amway for eight years back in the 70’s and did real good with it—– but Quixtar was a rip-off. I’m a 69 yr. old single lady who didn’t need to lose on such a thing as this!!

  • C. Pressley July 30, 2012, 11:11 pm

    I feel violated and betrayed by everyone who me and my family delt with concerning Amway. While serving in the Army and living in Lakewood WA, I was introduced to Amway or more like decieved. I was told that when I got out of the Army I would be making enough to support my family and I would not haft to return to my home wich was South Carolina. While apart of Amway my wife and I lost family and friends due to chasing the dream we were sold. We lost money, time and relationships. Amway affected my life but thank GOD that we were able to get out before it was to late!

  • Andres Castillo August 4, 2012, 6:22 pm

    I was an IBO in 2009, I realized it was possible to be successful in the business but unrealistic in the amount of work – reimbursement it gave.
    I paid the registration fees and sold their products and went to meetings in dallas for several months without earning more than some points towards a hierarchy of people below me, I didn’t quite understand my amway “advisor”

    After reading many of these comments on Amway and Quixtar I now have a better understanding of why Obama is doing so well in the polls. People you need to understand success involves hard work, doesn’t happen overnight and may never happen. You need to understand your business and take ownership not just blindly follow. Being a small business owner is not a government job, a union job or freebee, you actually have to WORK and take pride in actually providing for yourself. It’s called personal responsibility, what made our country great, try it!

      I totally understand about owning a business, we have our own auto repair business and we work hard and long hours, and are totally dedicated to it’s functions and our customers , but unlike Quixtar, we are not out to rip people off. We too had joined Quixtar back in 2006-2007, and got fed a line of bull crap. We bought items through them, and their affiliates, and NEVER got a dime in return. We went to meetings both in team homes and company events, we purchased their books and DVD’s. This was nothing but a scam!

    No se crean de esta compañia son unos mentirosos que vas a recibir mucho dinero y es una falsedad, a ni me ivan a dar $500 dolares y solo me llegaron $7.00 dolares, en ese entonces nosotros no teniamos una targeta de credito o visa para ordenar los productos y las personas de mas arriba por tal de que ordenaramos para hacer los puntos requeridos nos hacian la orden con targetas de otra persona, y ahorita que anda la demanda veo que requieren recibos de compras, y pues en mi caso no tengo nada, por que se hicieron ordenes con tarjetas a otro nombre. pero si te hacen gastar de $400.00 a mas para completar tus puntos, asi como asistir a seminarios y comprar productos como CD, Cassetes, llibros etc. en esta empresa solo te hacen gastar tu dinero y perder tu tiempo. No dejes tus familia a un lado por seguir a estas personas falsas.

  • Maria Orozco January 13, 2013, 9:35 pm

    Agradezco y felicito a las personas que tuvieron el valor de enfrentar a esta demanda, que bueno que se haga justicia, por los productos que bendian con los precios tan elevados, por que yo recuerdo cuando no hacia mi orden me molestava tanto que mi telefono estava a timbre y timbre, no me la acabava con las llamadas de las personas de mas arriva, que mi orden no aparecia, hasta que les conteste, yo no me boy a quedar sin comer por consimir sus productos, y paren de llamarme o boy a poner restriccion a sus llamadas.

    i was led to believe it will make me a millioner. That never happened. Not only the meetings cost mony, but they told us to purchase only their products if we want to get ahead. They also told us to bring peoplein. The more people the more money we would make. Some of the higher ups even made false claims how rich they got. Once i saw this guy pumping gas on Jersey Turnpike 8AM When asked why he is there he answered “I have to make a living till I get rich.

  • Agnes January 15, 2013, 6:07 pm

    i was told I’ll make alot of money by bringing in people and buying their products. I kept spending more and more on the business with out getting a dime from it. The higher ups were untrue to their words. They said they made it big. I found out this to be untrue when a bigshot was pumping gas at *AM Sunday morning. His response “gotta do something till he will make it. Thats when i quit. I stillowe people money as aresult.

  • Toye Smith January 16, 2013, 2:58 pm

    I played the fool for amway. There was no financial reward. None! Now, how can I submit application to be included in thais class action?

  • Confused January 16, 2013, 9:20 pm

    I was an IBO too and i did submit the claim online about 5 months ago or so when i got a card in the mail. But i just got the same card in the mail again just like before. Do i have to submit another claim online? Am confused about this whole thing.
    I joined for $300 and bought a lot of products, a whole lot. I mean i went crazy, most of the products i ended up using myself but i did sell some and i recruited a bunch of people too. But when i lost my job i couldn’t go to meetings or FEDs anymore. I also bought a lot of CDs and books. I don’t have any receipts with me know but i do have a FED ticket and all the books and CDs.
    Please may this be true i need that $$$ back so bad.

    PS: Sue, am very sorry about you and your husband. Quixtar has no right to do such a thing to a family or anybody for that matter. I hope you are able to patch things up and be HAPPY again….. in your life. I do relate and i feel very sorry. May you be bless forever!

    My husband and I were in Amway/Quixtar from 1998-2001 . We did everything like we were supposed to, and never made any real money. We had 3 kids at the time, and were struggling. It is sad that this had to end up this way. We are now divorced, and we had to file bankruptcy in 2003. We are still friends and raising our children together. Life goes on. I wouldn’t blame Quixtar for our demise, but it sure didn’t promise what it led on.

  • Lydia Padilla February 2, 2013, 7:01 pm

    It’s a shame such a prestige Company, For many years I’ve been an IBO and it hurts to see how Power overcome weakness, But there is always a light that brigthens.for the years i’ve been selling, if I have recieved $150 is alot.It’s a shame.

  • Lanai Caines February 7, 2013, 1:04 pm

    Hi I think that I still am a IBO member but between all the money I spent out buying products getting new members paying for some people to become members buying all new kitchen appliances washer and dryer then having them ship my items here in Bermuda
    and only getting about 5 dollars in a check and going to all of those meetings was a waste of time. I can see that now but there more schemes with different names out there now. I’m very upset never again will I let people take advantage of me my family and friends the way Quixtar has.

  • Marcia Armstrong February 17, 2013, 5:28 pm

    I received a notice about the settlement, but when I try to fill out the claim online I cannot submit it because we don’t have zip codes, what to do?

  • Denise Dukes & David Causey February 26, 2013, 8:27 pm

    I had one word that I said when my son read me the postcard that came in the mail…..What!!!!! I thought Quixtar wanted us back as IBO’s, you mean to tell me that quixtar was all a scam?!?! What is the world coming too? I bgan to talk to him about the people who recruited us, they were very convincing in telling us that we had the potential to earn lots of money if we knoc on doors to get people to sign up under our website. The sponsor (not mentioning his name) went so far s to ask my son to solicit peole from his school. My son and i knocked on a lot of doors and put in a lot of orders on top of purchasing their products from Quixtar but the more we purchased and the more clientswe recruited we didn’t receive one penny!!! It still was not enough. I am truly disappointed with Quixtar I thought that it was a promising opportunity. Anyway, I went online to print out a claim form but to no avail so I called the 1-888 number today and a claim form is in the mail. Wow!! what a waste of time and money.

  • hazel d edwards March 15, 2013, 1:56 pm
