– Pyramid-type promotional systems are prohibited by both Polish and European law. We must quickly and effectively eliminate them from the market, because consumers lose their savings on their activities. An important element in the case of this type of projects are the so-called touts – people who consciously promote these “projects” for a fee, drawing new consumers to them. Without their activities, the pyramid-type promotional systems would not be able to efficiently attract new participants. Touts must be held accountable for their actions that mislead consumers, which result in serious financial losses for consumers and can lead to serious human tragedies. After the procedure I decided to punish the tout Damian Żukiewicz with a penalty of nearly PLN 450,000 PLN. For each of the identified practices relating to the promotion of illegal investment on the Internet, misleading consumers and misleading them with the vision of great profits, I imposed on it almost the maximum statutory financial sanction. We conduct further activities aimed at the organizers and promoters of pyramid systems, each time we also inform law enforcement agencies about our suspicions – said Tomasz Chróstny, President of UOKiK.
