the court found two residents of Khabarovsk guilty of organizing a financial pyramid. From their actions 99 people suffered, the damage amounted to tens of millions of rubles.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Khabarovsk Territory, two men created four similar organizations at once. When contacting the office, the victims entered into a loan agreement for a period of three months to one year at 30% per annum with monthly interest payments. At the end of the loan term, clients were persuaded to conclude a new contract on more favorable terms, with an increase in interest payments.

As a result, citizens received payments actually from their money and from funds received from new borrowers. It was forbidden to take your money before the expiration of the contract.
The pyramid was valid from 2014 to April 2016. Attackers launched commercials on regional television, where they strongly emphasized the reliability and stability of their financial organizations.

During the pyramid, offices were opened in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Birobidzhan, Novosibirsk and Berdsk, Novosibirsk Region. The attackers spent the money received from the victims for personal needs, for example, for the purchase of expensive equipment, cars, visiting restaurants, traveling, and apartment renovations. In total for the indicated period they attracted more than 43 million rubles in all offices.

In March 2016, they ran out of money for interest payments, and at the beginning of April of the same year, offices in all cities began to close. One of his friends tried to hide the activities of the financial pyramid. A criminal case was opened under the article “Fraud”. One of the defendants entered into a pre-trial agreement and is now serving a sentence in a penal colony. The court found the second organizer guilty and sentenced him to imprisonment for a term of seven years and six months with serving in a penal colony.
