Pershing Square To Release A Series Of Videos Showing Herbalife’s False And Misleading Claims Continue
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. (“Pershing Square”) today announced it will release a series of videos showing that Herbalife continues to make false and misleading claims about its fraudulent business opportunity. The first video is available at www.FactsAboutHerbalife.com.
Pershing Square has previously documented numerous examples of Herbalife’s top distributors’ aggressive tactics that mislead new recruits. Herbalife’s management allows these top distributors to continue at the company despite their track record. The top distributors at the company have remained largely unchanged in the last decade.
Herbalife claims that it has cleaned up its act in recent years. It hasn’t. These videos show that veteran distributors who have made misleading claims continue to have a prominent role at Herbalife, and new distributors are making misleading claims every day as they try to advance in the company.
Herbalife’s compensation plan incentivizes recruiting which fosters misleading and fraudulent distributor behavior. Herbalife remains a pernicious pyramid scheme in which 99% of distributors earn less than minimum wage from the company.
