Desteni have increased their membership.
There are still only about 100 Destonians listed at destonians.com.
But there are over 150 members of their leadership forum at [leadership.desteni.org
], which suggests a 50% increase. Most of the recruiting is probably now being done via Facebook.
Their presence on Facebook is illegal.
The Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities reads under 3. Safety:
You will not send or otherwise post unauthorized commercial communications (such as spam) on Facebook.
You will not engage in unlawful multi-level marketing, such as a pyramid scheme, on Facebook.
4. Registration and Account Security, states:
You will not use your personal profile for your own commercial gain.
It has also been reported that attempts to alert Facebook to the activities of Desteni members, which involves using their personal Facebook profiles for the specific purpose of spamming the site with commercial communications advertizing the Desteni I Process multi-level marketing scheme have not as yet been heeded.
