Younique Makeup Fails That We Facepalmed Over

We're back at it with another round of pyramid-scheme fails! If you're not familiar with the brand Younique, it's essentially another pyramid-scheme company that calls its employees "Presenters." The Presenters sell overpriced makeup products to their friends and family, and attempt to recruit people to sell the products as well. The company makes outlandish claims about what the products can do, and they often times employ Presenters who don't actually know how to apply makeup at all.

Not convinced yet that it's a total scam? Just let the following pics change your mind.

Dude Almost Falls For Incredibly Believable Scam

We like to see idiot scammers get trolled, but sometimes they're incredibly clever and have access to way more of your information than you thought. Seriously, someone can dig up tons of personal information on you like your family members and past addresses in order to look legit, and frankly that's spooky as hell. This guy had to deal with just that but thankfully had the sense to back out.

It's strange to look back and realize something you didn't know was going wrong, like these things people later discovered were illegal. For some funny scammer revenge, here's a scammer who got trolled with made up neighbor drama.
