No, ACN is not a scam. A scam or illegal pyramid scheme, compensates based on recruitment, and in most cases no actual real products are sold or real customers acquired. At ACN, compensation is based 100% on the sale of real products and services to real customers. If no customers are acquired, no money is earned. ACN has provided a legitimate business opportunity for more than 25 years and is a respected industry leader in direct selling – as well as all the other service-based industries they represent.
