Multi-Level Marketing Schemes in Baltimore
Attorneys Defending MLM Businesses throughout Bel Air, Annapolis & Maryland
In America, entrepreneurial spirit is abound. Many Americans are eager businessmen and women, always on the hunt for a new opportunity with the promise of prosperity. Unfortunately, these ambitious and hardworking entrepreneurs can be thrown for a loop when charged with a pyramid scheme crime.
Far too often, disappointed investors whose return on investment is lower than expected report their situation to law enforcement in the hopes of bringing down a business out of bitterness. If you have been accused of operating a multi-level marketing scheme, you need legal representation because law enforcement takes these illegal business practices seriously.
The Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates can step in and handle the legal work for you, crafting an effective strategy with the goals of protecting your rights, avoiding conviction, and reducing charges or sentences.
How We Can Serve You
Multi-level marketing is not inherently illegal – rather, it is a business model that can be performed within the bounds of the law. However, when illegal activities – like fraud, tax evasion, conspiracy, or money laundering – enter the picture, MLMs (multi-level marketing companies) may run into legal issues.
Multi-level marketing schemes are generally investigated by:
- The SEC
- The FTC
- Federal and state attorneys
- The FBI
- Local investigative agencies
