QNET SCAM FAQ
Get Answers to Any of Your Toughest Questions About QNET
Why do people say that QNET is a scam, a pyramid scheme, or a business that cheats hard-working people?
To understand why people make this claim about QNET, you first need to be able to differentiate between direct selling companies that create real opportunities and pyramid schemes.
In a pyramid scheme, people are paid when they recruit new people as sellers. In direct selling companies, people get paid a commission when they sell products. No matter how big one’s network is, if they aren’t selling products, they are not getting paid.
Pyramid schemes are not legal. Almost everyone who participates in them ends up losing money, they rely on scammy techniques like charging upfront enrollment fees, and they often convince new recruits to purchase non-returnable inventory, most of which isn’t easy to sell because it has no use.
A lot of people don’t understand this difference, and thus can’t tell apart a pyramid scheme and a direct selling business. What most people also don’t know is that thriving as an entrepreneur in direct selling requires lots of hard work, and other direct selling companies (as well as pyramid schemes) will sometimes try to convince people that they will be earning huge commission without putting the work in. These people, after struggling to succeed building direct selling businesses, often accuse the companies they worked with of being scams because they failed to get what they wanted.
We operate in compliance with all rules and regulations pertaining to the direct selling industry in a number of countries, including Singapore, Germany, and Hong Kong.
We are also aware that not all direct sellers engage in ethical practices. To combat this, we have always made every effort to pay taxes in full, give back to communities where we operate, and reinvest in countries where we do business. Our distributors are required to follow a strict code of conduct and those who fail to follow our basic procedures and policies are subject to harsh penalties.
We also believe that emerging economies should embrace direct selling as a way to create entrepreneurship in their countries and bring new contributions into their communities. To do it safely and sustainably, these countries should create legislation to reign in the industry and help differentiate scams from legitimate opportunities.
Has the organization been banned in any countries?
Direct selling businesses have faced many challenges in new markets, predominantly as a result of a lack of understanding and regulation. QNET, however, is not banned anywhere.
Over a decade ago, the Rwandan Ministry of Finance banned our operations due to the fact that they were not localized. To resolve this, we worked directly with the Rwandan government, started a local operation there, and now base our East African operations there.
Saudi Arabia is a different case, as all direct selling and network marketing companies are banned there. Our organization was not singled out, but due to the fact that we had a significant presence in Saudi Arabia, we were mentioned by name in media reports.

Why are there consumer complaints against the business and its products online?
We have observed that:
- People who supposedly have problems with our products never file formal complaints with us.
- People claim to be customers, we have no records in our database indicating that they ever purchased anything.
- People make absurd claims years after purchasing a product.
- Former representatives who were unable to thrive as direct sellers take to social media to complain about their inability to succeed as entrepreneurs.
Social media gives many people a platform to complain, and many of their complaints are anonymous and illegitimate. We work to address legitimate concerns as quickly and swiftly as possible.
