Welcome to the updated and improved Pyramid Scheme Alert website. We hope you’ll find it easier to navigate and to search.
Although our appearance has changed, we still have the in-depth news and information about pyramid schems that you’ve come to expect. All the old material is still accessible in the archives as well.
This Pyramid Scheme Alert website is the world’s largest and most authoritative information source about the deception and harm of multi-level marketing (MLM) pyramid schemes. We enable consumers to identify, avoid or escape pyramid scams. Hundreds of MLM scams operate openly. 99% of all consumers who join the schemes never earn a profit. Many suffer devastating financial losses. Only the top perpetrators make money — off the losses of all the others.
State and Federal Governmentt officials receive millions in campaign contributions from product-based pyramid scheme companies and lobby groups. PSA has been formed to counter this imbalance at the national and state level, and to educate consumers directly of the fraud and abuse of MLM. If you want to do something to help others from falling into the trap of MLM, educate yourself with our resources and join in the campaigns to stop the harm.
