Pyramid selling schemes are prohibited under the Fair Trading Act. The Act is enforced by the Commerce Commission. If you have been approached to join a scheme, which you suspect may be pyramid selling, we suggest you inform the Commerce Commission.  Individuals and corporations can be fined up to $200,000 for promoting, or operating a pyramid scheme. Offenders can also be required to pay an extra penalty based on the amount they have gained commercially from their involvement in the scheme.
