Pyramid Scheme Defense Considerations
Pyramid selling is illegal because it runs on the basis that participants in the pyramid are required to contribute something of value, usually money, and then by reason of the contributions of other participants they become entitled to something of greater value, usually a larger sum of money. In order for any participant to become entitled to more than was contributed, a larger number of new participants is required. If every person who was approached to participate did, eventually the pyramid would fail. Earlier participants in a pyramid selling scheme are more likely to benefit than later participants.
The effect is that while a few benefit the majority do not.
