Mike Fisher, Pennsylvania's Attorney General, has taken legal action against promoters and participants in the "World of Giving" pyramid scheme, also known as "Guidelines to Giving." The scheme was promoted throughout southeastern Pennsylvania in 2000. While claiming to be a legal "gifting program," the scheme is actually an illegal pyramid scheme.
Robert Templeton and Judy Socco have each entered into separate "Assurance of Voluntary Compliance" agreements with the state.
