705-Attorney General

PYRAMID SCHEMES go back


Pyramid schemes (endless chains) are scams in which large numbers of people pay money to a few people. Each new participant pays for the chance to advance and profit from the payments of others that join later. Pyramid schemes are based on the premise that the more people you recruit under you, the more money you will make.
