    End Pyramid Scams to Protect American Families

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...ilies/jPg3gKX0

    End pyramid scams to protect American families
    It is currently a challenge to get a pyramid scam shut down. There should be an easier way to get a group investigated for running a pyramid scheme.

    In Michigan there has been a pyramid scam running for almost ten years and no one has done anything to stop it.

    The few get rich while the many suffer.

    Reports have been filed with the FTC but this approach has not been working. Please do something to resolve the injustice.

    There’s a petition for the White House to provide an official response on how they will go about shutting down pyramid scams. Sign the petition and let your voice be heard.
    This is the purpose of the petition.

    Define pyramid scheme, IMO, that's part of the problem with the petition. it doesn't do that.

    I'm all for ending unethical, BS programs, but don't throw out the baby with the bathwater.

    I think you're an idiot that thinks that every MLM, or business that you don't understand, is a scam.

    That sounds a lot like the percentage of MLMers who are net profitable.
