Texas Sues Double Eagle Marketing as Illegal Pyramid Scheme
September 27, 2000
Texas Attorney General John Cornyn is suing Double Eagle Marketing, based in the Killeen, TX area, as an illegal pyramid scheme, and for violations of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The company sells a home-based business program that purports to offer internet marketing strategies. Conryn claims that participants are paid for recruiting, not for selling products. The state is seeking a temporary injunction and restitution for consumers, as well as penalties and attorneys' fees.
