We reported that FHTM came under fire back in 2010 with North Dakota and Montana.
A receiver appointed by the U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois raided the headquarters and warehouse in Lexington, Kentucky.
The court also froze Fortune Hi Tech’s assets.
Here is a snip from the FTC site:
“At the request of the Federal Trade Commission and the states of Illinois, Kentucky, and North Carolina, a federal court has halted an allegedly illegal pyramid scheme pending trial. The FTC and the state attorneys general seek to stop the allegedly illegal practices of the Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FHTM) operation, which claimed consumers would make substantial income by joining the scheme. The operation affected more than 100,000 consumers throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico, and Canada. In some areas, including Chicago, the scheme targeted Spanish-speaking consumers.”
