About this Web site

This website is for people who are interested in pyramid schemes and multilevel marketing (MLM).   There are explanations of the terms “direct selling”, “MLM” and “pyramid scheme.” There is a resource section which contains lists of books about MLM, pyramid schemes and related subjects, academic articles from a variety of fields, court decisions, laws and regulations, internet websites and social media.    I have included my personal opinions on many of these sources and references.    My listing of a particular source does not mean I agree with everything in it.   I welcome corrections, constructive criticism and suggestions for additional sources, as well as comments and suggestions of topics for my blog. While I have gratefully accepted advice and suggestions from a number of people, all errors on this website are entirely my own.
