It's definitely a scam.
My dad has been actively selling and recruiting other sellers since early May, so just over five months. This weekend he broke the $1,000/month barrier after traveling to Houston to pull in two of his friends. I thought that was pretty awesome. We celebrated with cigars on his patio. That is a decent amount of supplemental income just from people paying their electric bills every month. Hopefully I can duplicate that because i can really use the money. It's like Mary Kay for men!
