In May 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against MarketAmerica, a multi-level marketing company that sells a variety of products, for allegedly operating an illegal pyramid scheme in which individuals are rewarded for recruiting others to join the pyramid. The complaint also alleges that the company deceptively touts that anyone can achieve financial success following MarketAmerica’s “two-year blueprint” when, according to the complaint, over 90% of distributors lose money. (Yang et al v. Market America, Inc. et al, Case No. 17-cv-4012, C. D. CA.)
