Tomasz Chróstny makes accusations against people promoting FutureNet
As UOKiK explains in his the message, the mentioned projects are “pyramid-type promotional systems, and their creation, operation and promotion is prohibited and considered as an unfair market practice ”. The office added that the entrepreneurs who promoted them could be fined.
Let us remind you that at the end of December 2020, the President of UOKiK, Tomasz Chróstny, imposed the first, historic penalty for reprimanding on pyramid-type promotional systems. Then it was about YouTuber Damian Żukiewicz (INVESTPROVIDER). New allegations regarding three entrepreneurs. They are: Mateusz Gużda (formerly “iPrime Consulting” Mateusz Gużda from Kluczbork), Zbigniew Lemański (former member of the supervisory board and liquidator of B3Team SA from Wrocław, in which a member of the management board was, among others, Damian Żukiewicz) and Bartłomiej Żukiewicz (suspended activities Bartłomiej Żukiewicz Investment from Wrocław). All three are accused of promoting “Pyramid-type promotional systems, i.e. projects that promise profits depend mainly on the introduction of new people into the system, and not on the sale or consumption of products.” As the office added, organizing and promoting such projects is prohibited by law.
These entrepreneurs encouraged to invest in suspicious projects through websites, social media accounts, on Youtube or during special events.
Prohibition of promoting pyramids
The ban on promoting the pyramids entered into force a few years ago.
– Ruling on pyramid-type promotional systems is an unfair market practice that can result in serious financial losses and sometimes human tragedy. Consumers who believe in the high and easily achievable profits promised by touts may lose their money invested and even run into debt. Systems of this type always fail in the end, and their organizers and touts – people who promote them – earn from them. Their actions are not only illegal but also ethically reprehensible. We will consistently fight touts, propagating pyramid systems cannot pay off – reminds Tomasz Chróstny, President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection.
