Well if it is a pyramid scheme, they are illegal.

Pyramid schemes work on the principle that I get say 20 people to sign up for something. If I do I win a prize.

Each of those 20 people then get ANOTHER 20 people (each) to sign up for something, and if they do THEY get a prize (and I probably get a prize as the person who signed them up in the first place).

Then the 20 people that the other 20 people signed up have to get ANOTHER 20 people (each) to sign up and so it goes on.

These only work for the first 2 or 3 people in the pyramid (those at the pointed end at the top).

Once you get down a few levels you find that you have to sign up the whole population of England if everyone is going to get a prize, and that aint gonna happen.

Steer clear of it.

errrm i get the jist of the pyramid scheme, the 20 people i would be registering would be me, thats what someone has hinted at that the sim cards have been used for, im not making much sense really am i :oops:

The offers to complete are say a mobile ringtone subscription which you can use the sims for you then have to refer people to complete these offers (in theory this could be yourself using different details each time of course) the tricky bit is then that each person signing up must be from a different ip address, proxies tend to be detected. The only real way round this that I can see is using wi-fi hotspots or if you are devious enough unsecured wi-fi (but this would be illegal). An alternative is by using your friends internet access to do the sign-ups!

The ones I did were websites like Freepay, never did this sim thing.

i myself am intrigued. so you get lots of those free sims, register 20 accounts using those sims and get subscription for the ringtone rubbish using those. then get a free console... that right?
