The Commission determined to refer the case of alleged pyramid selling by Alliance in Motion Global (AIM Global) to the COMESA Competition Commission. This followed an investigation which showed that AIM Global enterprises were taking place in more than one COMESA member state.
The investigation established that “AIM Global” were involved in the marketing of some alleged health products. However, there was no evidence to show that the enterprise was generating money through product sales. Instead, individuals were investing in the scheme and benefitting through the recruitment of paid up members. For every recruitment completed, members were receiving a commission which they were sharing with across the recruitment ladder from the bottom to the top.
