I was pitched a multi-level marketing scheme a couple years ago and have been fascinated ever since (as in, the mathematics and how to protect others, not as in a participant). This particular one is called Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FHTM). In business presentations (like this one around 2:30) and online material, I've heard that FHTM's founder, Paul Orberson, was involved in a network marketing company previously in his life, and that this is what inspired him to create FHTM.
The company was called Excel Communications, and Orberson is said to have shattered sales records left and right and earned more money in less time than anyone in the industry.
Specifically, claims are made that he made over $1,000,000 USD per month for 44 months straight before leaving the company. (USA Today has him saying $100,000/month in one of their articles, though there's no stipulation that this was the maximum).
Is there any verification for Paul Orberson's sales record with Excel Communication?
