Fraudulent MLM Scheme QNET Busted By Cyberabad Police

The QNET/Vihaan business model is a simple pyramid scheme in which the early entrants earn money and as the number of independent representatives (IR) increases, finding more IRs (New Comers) to join becomes difficult or impossible. IRs that joins late do not earn enough to cover their first outlay and the model collapses. It works as a binary scheme. Down the line the number of persons to join becomes difficult or impossible. The scheme collapses at some point in time. There is a huge amount of money going out of India in the name of a money circulation scheme in the disguise of Direct Selling.

QNET lured customers promising high returns if they became a part of its businesses including but not limited to cost-optimization, health and wellness, watches and jewellery, personal care and beauty, tour and education. Once a new member joins the chain through a promoter, he becomes an independent representative and gets complimentary items. The promoter, in return, gets a commission. While top-level members get good returns, new members are left with nothing. – Source newindianexpress.com

QNET Scam Conclusion

In my opinion, QNET is another recruiting scam. Ridiculous claims about their products and the income you can make are used to bring new people into the scam. You will find hundreds of complaints about this company and their representatives. “Fake it until you make it” is the foundation of the claims made by QNET representatives. Each person who profits with QNET does so primarily from the payments of others who are themselves making payments in order to obtain their own profit. Retail sales information is not available for new distributors. I would avoid the QNET scam.
