What is IAM Worldwide
IAM Worldwide is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) that operates in the health and wellness niche. The company’s flagship products are organic barley drinks and capsules, which according to them can help in the treatment and prevention of cancer.
“However, its effect on cancer cells is yet to be clearly defined.” Source
This statement is not new to us. Claims that exaggerate product benefits are common among MLMs just to sell their BS stuff.
Allen Marvin Yu Eder and Aika Lorraine Uy founded this networking company. We did a background check of these two and found that Eder was the president of the defunct The Filipino Dream (TFD) MLM.
Moreover, Uy was the top earner of the extinct networking company. Eder and Uy formed IAM Worldwide and joined by the other top earners of TFD.
Long story short, IAM Worldwide was born from the ashes of TFD MLM.
IAM Worldwide Products and Price
IAM Worldwide sells health supplements and beauty products. Below are the products list and their corresponding current prices:

Those products aren’t cheap. For instance, a box of coffee with 10 sachets costs Php750. A beauty soap is also priced at Php750.
In case you don’t know, MLM products are priced so high so that each level of distributor will get a commission once a product is sold.
We wonder if people who are not members of IAM Worldwide will buy these things. Certainly, those overpriced products won’t make you awesome and amazing.
Misleading Product Claims
Indeed, barley has several impressive benefits, however, there is not enough evidence that it can treat cancer. A testimonial that someone is cancer-free because she used to take barley is not conclusive proof.
Also, there isn’t any credible scientific evidence that the energy pendant helps the body’s biofield to increase its power. Likewise, there is no evidence the same pendant helps the cells become more active and effective.
Baseless and false statements about the products violate the consumer law of the Philippines. MLM companies should take note of that.
How to Join in IAM Worldwide

Is IAM Worldwide Legit or Scam
We believe IAM Worldwide is a scam. Its compensation plan focuses mainly on recruiting new investors to buy investment packages.
These packages are marketed and sold to the public with a promise of guaranteed returns, incentives, and bonuses.
Once you get a new investor, you’ll get a portion of their payment as your commission and the rest goes to the people above you.
A member or investor may opt to sell or consume the products. However, IAM Worldwide and its top promoters cannot deny the fact that their primary source of profit came from the investment of new members.
Its business model looks like a pyramid scheme.
In addition, we believe that the scheme used by the company satisfies the elements of an investment contract.
Hence, the company must have a secondary license and register the investment to the SEC before it is offered to the public. If none of these requirements have complied, IAM Worldwide is selling the investment package illegally.
Stay away from IAM Worldwide Corporation. We believe it’s a scam because its business model looks like a pyramid scheme.
Profit in this company came primarily from the investment of new members. Packages are bundled with products to make it appear like there is a legitimate sale when a new investor joins.
People who make a lot of money from this scheme are the founders and the top promoters. They make money at the expense of poor downlines.
Also, we believe the scheme used by the subject satisfied the elements of investment. Thus, it must comply with the requirements of the securities law.
