Description

WBNS-TV examined "Purchase Plus Buyers Group, located in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio, and was becoming one of the fastest growing multi-level marketing companies in the United States. More than 60,000 people across the country began investing their money in the company, confident it would lead them down the road to riches. ... Upon investigating, we found the company making false promises and contradicting statements, selling bogus products and not paying investors. In a month long investigation of the company's owners, we also uncovered a history of serious financial and legal troubles."
