    You may be interested in this (it's kinda advertising)

    All right guys. It seems like the old times are back. I remember the times (about 7 years ago) when Internet surfers were offered to download toolbars and view banner advertising in exchange for some money.

    Most of those companies are gone (such as Alladvantage). Some of them continue to make ends meet (such as cashfiesta.com). And others are trying to reinvent the old things.

    It is the companies like Agloco that try to resurrect the old ways of doing things. But this time I think the circumstances are right and they can actually take advantage of larger user-base and bigger ad revenues as compared to seven years ago. I think this particular company restarted the old concept at the right time and people like you and I can get their share of the Internet.

    Basically, this company offers to earn money from viewing ads, getting cash back on purchases, making subscriptions, etc. Plus, it's a kind of a pyramid where you get a percentage if you subscribe users under you. So check it out, and if you like it then subscribe under MasterRussian. If not then dump it Here is the link http://www.agloco.com/r/BBBF7361

    Дорогой basurero, слово "реклама" во мн. числе не употребляется (или почти не употребляется)
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Ah, but that is different. Organization in pyramid shape is legal and quite encouraged actually. It's best to have only one boss!

    Pyramid schemes are marketing and investment frauds which reward participants for inducing other people to join the program.

    'Pyramid schemes' are illegal. However, some persist under cover businesses, etc.

    (Generally, they sell tremendously overpriced goods.)

    I did not see anything about pyramid schemes in those. Anyway they are only considered illegal pyramid schemes depending on how the business is set up. Like Amway or WFG (World Financial Group), for example. Based on a pyramid but still legal.

    Unfortunately the US law is written in specific terms, but the courts have ruled against such schemes using those very codes, because they are frauds.

    "Whoever, having devised [...] any scheme [...] to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, [...] shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both."

    Yes, most pyramid schemes are illegal (if not all). But this one doesn't look like a pyramid at all. Read more about their concept to get an idea. They are suggesting people to own a part of a company (shares and profit) in exchange for some input. What you probably think is a pyramid in this company is simply a system of referrals (a form of promotion).

    Pyramids in business is legal when every link of the chain adds value to goods or services being traded and such goods and services are taxed by VAT.
    Pyramids like this one don't add any value so they are considered illegal.
