While researching on your behalf, I found this interesting lawsuit filed in the Superior Court Of The State Of California County Of Marin, October 28, 2014.  Click here to see the filed court document.

17. It Works has manufactured, distributed and/or sold the Covered Products containing
lead into the State of California. Consumers have been ingesting these products for many years,
without any knowledge of their exposure to lead, a very dangerous chemical.

18. For many years, It Works has knowingly and intentionally exposed numerous persons
to lead, without providing a Proposition 65 warning. Prior to ERC’s Notices of Violation, It Works
failed to provide a warning on the label of the Covered Products. It Works has at all times relevant
hereto been aware that the Covered Products contained lead and that persons using these products
have been exposed to the chemical. It Works’ website repeatedly asserts that the company’s
products are “safe, effective, and grounded in natural, botanical principles”, and that they are
produced from “the highest quality natural ingredients”.

In an article published by “Truth In Advertising,” you can read the following:

The Florida Attorney General has received several complaints against the company, which TINA.org obtained under a Freedom of Information request. Many of the complaints detailed the how difficult it is to cancel orders and obtain refunds.

As of January 2016, It Works Global aka Crazy Wrap Thing had 281 complaints filed with the FTC. Many of the complaints allege, among other things, difficulty contacting the company and problems canceling auto-shipments.

The FDA also has one adverse event reported for It Works aka Crazy Wrap Thing.

My Final Opinion of IT WORKS

My honest opinion is that if you are a newbie in MLM, I will stay away from It Works.  There is a lot of other companies out there that you can earn real passive income, Wealthy Affiliate is one of them.  But if you are looking to make quick money online you will just get scammed as this DOES NOT EXIST my friend!  In any business online or offline you need to work very hard!

  1. Wow, I am so glad I found and read your article about “It Works” because last year a friend of mine tried to introduce me to it.

    She had signed up but of today isn’t with them anymore. However, I was always skeptical right from the beginning when she explained all the steps and how it is structured.

    Quite frankly, it was a bit too complicated for me.
    Thanks, for all the extra links I certainly will read them as well.

  2. Hello great and helpful review that will help so many people when it comes to trying this system. There are so many scams that are out there but it is good to know that there are website like yours that are helping people not to fall into these scams.

  3. Hi Carole,

    Thank you for this amazing review for It Works. My neighbor recently joined them and she kept pushing me to join too. I guess I will direct her to your page, Carole.

    Hopefully she will finally stop pushing me… Gosh! Again, thank you Carole. 🙂

  4. Thanks for your research on this. I am always looking for ways to make money, but not really interested in MLM for this very reason. Buyers definitely need to read the fine print on everything before spending money on the “make money fast” schemes.

    1. Thanks for your comment Tiffany! Yep when you see advertising saying Make Quick Money online, run for your life! What is too good to be true, it is! And please please please READ the FINE PRINT!

  5. Thanks for the heads up. I’m not too fond of MLM because the majority of the money goes into the hands of those above you and you literally do all the work.

    Some can be very profitable but ‘It Works’ sounds like ‘This Stinks’

    I stronger dislike companies who have taken advantage of the “ALL NATURAL” market and had made a fool out of us all. Lead? Really? And the 388 complaints and the C++ BB rating? No thanks.

    I’ve dealt with companies who are impossible to get a hold and who make it extremely hard to get your refund. I know that they are teaching their representatives.

  6. Excellent review. I find your content very informative. Had a friend recently join It Works. She was new to MLM and went into with high hopes & big dreams. Unfortunately she learned the hard truth in short order. Think she barely lasted 2 months with it. As you said, it’s not for everyone. But I encourage her to never give up on her dreams. She just has to find the right fit.

  7. Good grief!!
    I tell yah! You learn something new every day. I have never heard of this company before. Thank you, Carole, for taking the time to ‘uncover’ their shady practices.
    You have to be so careful about some of these MLM companies. Checking them on BBB is also a great idea.
    Thanks again.

  8. Thanks for such a great and informative article, I too have been approached by someone trying to build their upline, so glad I did not get caught up with it. You are so right about read the fine print before committing to anything ~ IT Works would not work for me at all !!! Again, thank you for the heads up.
