|Tiens Tianshi Scam|
Tiens is a China based MLM company in the health an wellness industry. Their product ranges from health food, health care, beauty care and home care. It was founded in 1995 by Mr. Li Jinyuan in Tianjin China. Since then it was spreading like wild fire and now it is operating in a 100 plus countries worldwide including the Philippines. It has a very lucrative compensation plan (see: www.tiensna.com/docs/English-TiensCompensationBooklet). And as we know in Networking/MLM business model, the more lucrative it is, more of the primary income is coming from building your downline. This is where a MLM company is considered to be a "pyramid scheme" rather than a normal direct selling company.
here is a quote from her article:
"The evil twin to SPACs are the companies that got a lease on life through a reverse merger. Chinese companies like Bodisen Biotech of Xi'an and Tiens Biotech Group USA of Tianjin.
Don t be fooled by their high falutin bio-tech sounding names. Bodisen actually manufactured fertilizer and pesticides, and was subsequently delisted. Tiens sold nutritional supplements. A company calling itself China Natural Gas was a pink sheet, Amex wannabe, but it wasn t a BP (BP: 42.46, -0.55, -1.28%) or an ExxonMobil (XOM: 91.33, -0.41, -0.45%): China Natural Gas ran nine gas stations in Xi'an".
With these kind of reputation I am not surprised that they did not penetrate USA and Canada and closed down their branches there. Now they concentrate more on third world countries where poverty is high and easy preys are abundant.
More observationsI got interested on the man behind all this. Mr. Li Jinyuan. I do not know him and I tried not to make an immediate impression based on the track record of his company and do more research about him. I thought the best way to get info about him is visit Tiens website. (see: http://ph.tiens.com/tiens/ph/en/about)
Fortunately there are lots written material on the website praising him, but as much as they praise him I was disgusted. Starting from the first article about him I did not trust him, personally for me he is a straight-out liar. Here are few of my favorite proofs of his lie taken from Tiens Philippines website. It was the last two paragraph from the first article I saw about Li Jinyuan.
Tiens development is very much attributable to the unwavering support from the Chinese Government, its open policies, associations, friends, staff and especially Tiens’ business partners. Tiens’ journey of development is never without the 1. fulfillment of its social responsibility. Throughout its expansion, TIENS always live up to its principles of "contributing to society by restoring health to mankind." 2. It upholds the values of honesty and trustworthiness; being a responsible corporate citizen, it abides by the law, pays taxes and stimulates the economy, not forgetting contributions to charity, which amounts to more than RMB1.5 billion worldwide as of today.
When you hoist the sails to cross the sea, you will ride the winds and cleave the waves. With an outlook toward the future, TIENS will continue to serve global consumers with outstanding products and service, opportunities for education and career advancement, state-of-the-art business concepts, and improved quality of life. TIENS forms a broad international platform for anyone interested in its charitable causes. 3. I believe that everyone can enjoy a happy, harmonious, healthy and wealthy life.
1. I do not know what they mean by "social responsibility". Everybody knows from what really happened, It was "social destruction".
2. Again an outright lie, what happened in Tibet was the complete opposite.
3. If he is not delusional then he is a complete liar. NOT EVERYONE will make it in MLM, and especially not even the majority. In this type of recruiting business models, facts shows that on average only 2% will make money.
This is just some of the few things I saw in a two short paragraph. In that Tiens website there are more or less 5 pages full of writings about him. Even if it was a sore to the eye I endured reading all of it. I was amazed how could such man dared to claim all these when whats really happening around is the complete opposite.
DiscalimerThe piece of writing above is a product of my research, opinions, critical thinking and common sense. However, human as we are, we are not perfect. Furthermore, I am no expert on journalism of any kind, I am just an average bloke. So this will not be used as a professional reference.
