Hedge fund manager Bill Ackman has called Herbalife a pyramid scheme in which most independent distributors lose money, while a lucky few who got in early get rich by getting commissions from others they brought into the business. He's bet $1 billion that Herbalife shares will fall. The company denies the allegations, saying many of its distributors sign up only to get a discount for personal consumption.
