Apparently, Gonowon was trying to convince Catudio’s brother to join his network marketing company in order to earn more money. But after Catudio’s brother politely declined Gonowon’s offer, the latter began insulting his prospective downline.

“Tol naniniwala akong effective ang networking, kaso hindi ako nabibilang sa may mga kaloob na lumago jan tulad mo eh, mahina ako sa networking… Passionate artist pa lang ako na naghahanap pa ng mas pagkatuto. Wala pa ako sa paghahangad ng kayamanan,” Catudio’s brother told Gonowon.

To which Gonowon replied: “Hindi totoo yang sinasabi mo na hindi mo hangad yumaman at hindi ka ready. Kagaguhan yan tol. Sorry huh, pero alam mo kung bakit mo nasasabi yan? Kasi ayaw mo gawan ng paraan at wala kang balak gawan ng paraan. Puro pangarap lang at alam mo sa sarili mo na wala kang chance sa mga pangarap mo dahil alam mo sa sarili mong hindi mo maabot yun sa ginagawa mo ngayon.”

In an attempt to persuade his prospective downline, Gonowon even bragged that he was able to purchase a house and lot worth P1.5 million through networking. According to him, Catudio’s brother wouldn’t be able to purchase such thing with his income as an employee.

He continued giving derogatory remarks saying that Catudio’s brother is living a difficult life because he doesn’t have a vehicle or a decent home.

“Hindi ba mahirap yung wala akong sasakyan at wala kang maayos na tahanan? Mahirap yun tol. Mahirap na nahihirapan ka. Alam mo yun. Hindi mo lang kaya tanggapin.”

Frustrated that he wasn't able to convince his prospective downline, Gonowon even went to the extent of claiming that Catudio’s brother can’t afford to buy a nice pair of shoes.

Read the complete conversation below.

Shortly of Catudio’s post went viral, Gonowon once again contacted his prospective downline. Here’s the second part of their conversation.

Also known as multilevel marketing (MLM), network marketing is a popular business strategy utilized by several companies in the Philippines. In recent years, such business strategy has gained notoriety over the manner members recruit their downlines. Moreover, some fraudulent companies have also tainted the reputation of MLM in the country.
