The National Consumer Commission joined forces with the Asset Forfeiture Unit of the National Prosecution Authority and Financial Intelligence Centre to put the brakes on a pyramid scheme called Up Money (Pty) Ltd . This has led to the freezing of bank accounts and seizure of assets including three luxury motor vehicles.
Pyramid Schemes are prohibited under Section 43 (2) of the Consumer Protection Act (CPA). Up Money unlawfully exploited the Covid-19 pandemic and food security concerns to lure consumers into joining and participating in the Up Money pyramid scheme.
