Muvi Tv should stop promoting pyramid scheme called Lwessa

Editor,

I just saw an add on Muvi TV, about Lwessa Savings and Credit Cooperative Union Ltd. This are conmen…Typical pyramid scheme…Warn people not to use this crooks! I dont know how Muvi TV accepts adverts like this, leading people to the slaughter. Please people dont be cheated by easy profits…You will just lose your money.

A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainablebusiness model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the publi, according to Ewiki.

The full advert targeting Katete residents in Eastern province is reproduced below
