What is a Pyramid Scheme?

Also known as multi-level marketing schemes, pyramid schemes involve taking money from others and having those new members recruit members of their own, and on down the line. Usually, there are no products involved; those who designed or created the pyramid scheme are the ones who will profit by taking money from the people at the "low end of the totem pole" so to speak.

Pyramid schemes are white collar crimes that generally involve no violence, but can land you in prison and facing fines. This is a criminal offense that requires the expertise of a San Francisco pyramid schemes attorney. You may have become involved innocently, or you may have been an instigator in carrying out the scheme. At Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC, our team of skilled San Francisco criminal defense lawyers are dedicated to protecting your rights and freedom. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance, whether guilty or innocent.
