Who moved their Cheese?
A list of former Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies,
Sapphires, Platinums and those missing in action
Last update: 14.02.2010
If the business had "effortless residual income", why would all these
former high pins leave it all behind? This page is only meant to debunk the age old residual income myth still used as a line for new
prospects to the AmQuix business. No one would give up their residual check if it
they didn't have to work to keep the checks coming in.
Team In Focus: 6 Diamonds terminated, 11 resign in protest. The TIF Story, Quixtar's side of the story.

From a site visitor: You may want to think about adding "inactive"
Emeralds and Diamonds, such as the ones in the still active Morrison lawsuit. These 25+
Diamonds, Emeralds and others have remained inactive, but may still have distributorships
that pay them a few bucks every month... This list includes:
Mark & Martha Hughes
Joe & Dawn Morrison
David & Rose Roberts - sold distributorship after lawsuit was filed
Randy & Janet Councill
Rick & Linda Werner
Dr. T.M. & Cynthia Hughes
Tony & Marianne Cutaia
Phil & Wendy Neely
Dr. Marion & Jean McMurtrey
Donald & Celeste May
Mark & Deanna Pruitt
Jeff & Cecilia Musgrove
Victor & Kathy Brook
** It was estimated these folks represented approximately $200 million in annual Amway
sales - which is not just a fraction of what it once was at the height of these
distributorships ('95 & '96).
