Wells Fargo has been in the news because employees felt pressured to open up phony accounts in customer’s names and commit fraud. They felt the pressure from ‘above’. Even now Senator Elizabeth Warren is chastising Wells Fargo and demanding their CEO step down. Wells Fargo employees even call it “gaming”!  (according to CBS Denver, 9/14/2016).

United Games Affiliates caught signing up fraudulent accounts to increase their revenue! More accounts means more zones and tiers, and higher compensation!

United Games affiliates may be taking a page from that playbook in their ‘gaming’. They have issued an email warning affiliates not to sign people up for accounts without permission (which requires they accept privacy terms) and in a stunning revelation, have set up a form for people to seek ‘amnesty’ thereby acknowledgin this has happened.

Since United Games offers better compensation for higher levels and tiers (Zones, Tiers), there may be a lot of pressure to get more affiliates to move through the zones and tiers to be paid through a longer and deeper ‘downline’ in this MLM like system.

They are offering ‘amnesty’ which considering it’s a privacy policy violation, may not be enough.

This could put a lot of pressure on to open up fraudulent accounts in other people's names!
This could put a lot of pressure on to open up fraudulent accounts in other people’s names! “Affiliates” claim this isn’t MLM. Really? Could have fooled me! They are fooling many others!
The pressure is on to sign people up! So they are signing real people up with phony accounts!
