Hello, and thanks for your question.
I can understand your concerns, after joining QuestNet, that it might be a fraud. While MLM type of businesses are often likened to the 'pyramid scheme', which IS illegal, this company seems to subscribe to only the MLM type of business and states that you get out of it, what you put into it, timewise. It's not a get rich quick scheme and if you want it to be successful for you, then you have to devote the time necessary to sell the items. Here is more information about the company and it's answers to the accusations of fraud/scam: http://www.questnet-scam.com/

Only you can decide if this type of business is the right type for you, but although there have been accusations of this company being a fraud or scam, it seems to have proven that it is legitimate. If you don't want to remain in the company any more, find out how you can no longer be an Individual Representative and leave the company. If you have made an investment, find out the procedure to get it back, or, it's possible you may not be able to get it back, but you also won't lose any more money if you decide this type of business is not working out for you.
I wish you much good luck!
