Motives For Herbalife Criticism By Hispanics Questioned


, , ,


 Recently, Mary Sanders, executive director of the Spanish Speaking Center of New Britain, warned the Latino community about what the center called the “predatory and deceptive business practice” of the marketing company, Herbalife. Sanders wanted Latinos to know that the center has resources to share with anyone harmed by Herbalife.
Jackie Dobrich, a Herbalife member from Berlin and a Latina, called Sanders’ words “not only untrue and misleading, but also very harmful to a community she is supposed to help and protect.”
Dobrich added that “the most honest and accurate thing Ms. Sanders stated was admitting that her organization was receiving money from billionaire Wall Street hedge fund manager, Bill Ackman. It became clear another trusted member of a community was being bought and paid for by an investor to spread misinformation.”
According to Dobrich, Ackerman is creating “a misinformation campaign trying to destroy Herbalife because if the stock price collapses, Ackman will earn more than $1 billion.”

Dobrich maintains that Herbalife “sells delicious and nutritious products that hundreds of thousands nationally and millions of people worldwide consume each day.  By replacing one meal or two a day with a Herbalife shake, our members are able to lose or maintain weight, feel better and get healthier. It’s that simple.”
If you don’t sell what you buy, the company will buy 100 percent of the unused products back and pay for all shipping, said Dobrich.  “There simply is no risk.”
She warned that if Ackman succeeds, more than 7,000 people will be out of a job.
“Last week, the Connecticut Attorney General’s office stated that while they had received a few complaints, all were investigated and, no evidence of a pyramid scheme was found,” she said. “Ackman and his fund are now being investigated by the SEC and the FBI for possibly manipulating and trading on the Herbalife stock This is not someone who we want helping our community.”
