The article discusses multilevel marketing companies (MLMs) and the need for more stringent regulation. It is reported that MLMs uses a direct sales structure in which goods are sold directly to consumers through a network of individuals who earn commission on the products they sell and on the products sold by the individuals they recruit. It also highlights the fact that MLMs are often accused of being pyramid schemes, and while the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulates them.
