Amanda. While you've just confirmed that RFS is a pyramid scheme, you're
arguing that's somehow O'K because it's the BEST pyramid scheme to be
involved with? Sorry, but as you may have gathered by now, that goes
against some very basic principles that most of the subscribers to this site
adhere to. You're preaching to the unconverted.
Thanks for your frank admission of where the money goes and the fact
that you haven't sold ANY product at all. That is the method by which
pyramid schemes work and I appreciate the naivety of your revelation.
"A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves the
exchange of money primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme,
without any product or service being delivered."
You claim to be enrolling between one and seven suckers (my word)
every week. The old saying, "A fool and his money are soon parted"
seems very apt. That's why these schemes are illegal in NZ and in most
other countries. The Ministry of Consumer Affairs says:
Pyramid selling schemes prohibited
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.

Making money by whatever means is one of the defining characteristics
of people who promote these schemes. But if you have any form of moral
fibre Amanda, stand back and take a look at the RFS for what it is.
The Reverse Funnel System is a pyramid scheme.
Anyone being offered a place in the RFS or similar pyramid schemes
should file a complaint with the Commerce Commission:
