Doing a search on uVme is pretty scary. It's everything Kazim said about Amway, and more.

The name means "You vs. Me." What a clever name. :rolls eyes: It's noteworthy that not one site I visited said anything about the games you're theoretically playing. Every site was about how to recruit additional members.

It's expressly a MLM scam.

The uVme pay plan is revolutionary in design and is unlike any other compensation plan ever designed for a multi-level marketing (MLM) organization.

Same terms: upline and downline.

Don't wait - start promoting this fantastic global opportunity right now, because YOU DON'T WANT YOUR DOWNLINE TO TURN INTO YOUR UPLINE - right?

Multiple sites mention "jewels" instead of bullet points when selling this scam. Remember the jewel rank names in Amway?

The uVme Pay Plan - The 6 Jewels of financial security

There are seven jewels in this pay plan.

And yes, ranks in the scam have names. I've seen multiple mentions of "Q2" and "Q4." Some sites mention as many as 7 levels.

It's about "helping" people (cough, cough).

Just like in the movie "Pay It Forward", the uVme Pay Plan is based on the principle of helping 3 people achieve their bonus (emphasis in original material)

(a more inappropriate analogy is hard to imagine - you're roping in suckers, not "paying it forward.")

Charging for motivational videos, just like Amway.

Using the power of viral marketing, your videos will quickly spread around the internet as people pass them on to their friends. Some of those friends will then pass the video on to their friends and so on…

Your marketing message will be on all the videos!

Because the videos have cost me so much to get developed, I will need to charge £20 for each video.
(emphasis added)

In short - everything you ever heard about Amway applies directly to this scam.
