Default This does not sound good!

This sounds a little scary.

I want to extend my best wishes to those with Zeek. I am sure that this must be a frightening and anxious time for you.

I was in a somewhat similar position 19 months ago, so I know what it is like to put your heart and soul into a business and lose it. At that time, many people told me the (what I thought was) tired saying, "When one door closes..." Looking back now, I realize it was true.

Best of luck to you all.

Julie

I pray for the people who relied on them as their income source. I hope they don't lose hope in Network Marketing. This is the greatest industry on the planet!

Not to be cold but hey it's business and we all must go through a learning curve. Find a new company with a real product or service and build. Don't fall for hype or the "best compensation stuff".

I don't know much about zeek but I have seen many people pump up companies to recruit the masses with nothing but hype.. You have to do some sort of research on the product and company you plan to market with..

Someone posted on Zeek's Facebook page that the Attorney General's office has set up a Consumer Protection hotline for concerned Zeek affiliates or retail customers. (919) 716-6046.

As I would assume your an independent contractor it might be a good idea to consider speaking with an Attorney to find out what your options are.
