    Dear Friends ~

    I am actively seeking recruits for a wonderful job where I get to PAMPER people with some amazing recipes, products, and incentives. I have a great time at it and the best part is you don't have to be a CHEF to do the parties!

    If you or anyone you know might be interested in starting your own business, please feel free to contact me at email address I would love to share this experience with you all!

    *If you sign up this month you get the kit worth over $500 in supplies/products for $77.50!!!

    Very thin ice, but very cleverly done!! Too bad she didn't say "THE guests are PAMPERED with amazing recipes," then she would have gotten the whole name in, haha.

    Hmm, I might have to steal this!

    It is borderline but it isn't a violation.

    This is how I advise my Consultant's to word things to stay within guidelines. This is very good! I don't usually use the actual words Pamper or Chef however. Very creative!

    Sorry to hear about that Sandy. I agree the policies seem to be far behind the times.

    Can you let others know what you had posted? It may help someone else.

    It may be someone did you a "favor" and posted your link somewhere that you didn't know about. Just remember that we can't post that we sell PC anywhere. I was even told that my fundraiser could only be advertised on the Gymnastics Club's website and if they didn't have one, I could not advertise it anywhere that would be connected online (which includes the local newspapers)!

    It could be considered "false advertising" since she doesn't "qualify" how to get the kit for $77.50! I would definitely be interested in this "opportunity" but not too happy when I found out there is more to it than buying the kit for $77.50!
