News Manitoba – MB. RCMP allege pyramid scheme

Manitoba RCMP have charged 13 individuals and a corporation in connection with an alleged pyramid scheme that supposedly targeted people in the Steinbach area.

The Mounties’ Winnipeg Commercial Crime Section conducted a lengthy investigation that resulted in the criminal charges. Police said they relate to activities between spring 2008 and autumn 2009 in and around the city southeast of Winnipeg. Among those charged were seven Manitoba residents.

The corporation charged, Business in Motion International, is based in Mississauga, Ont.

The Manitobans charged in relation to the alleged scheme are Michael Rozak, 57, Kimberley Heier, 50, Lisa Behrendt, 48, Annie Petkau, 38, Katharine Reimer, 52, Melinda Scheper, 45, and David Kauenhowen, 59.

The accused director of the corporation, Colin Fox, 52, is an Ontario resident.

Also charged were Ontario residents Alan Kippax, 44, Lena Track, 56, Janice Degazon, 54, and Cornelia Kauenhowen, 56.

One B.C. resident, Charlene Friesen, 40, was charged.

According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, pyramid schemes are defined as rackets based on recruiting an ever-increasing number of investors. The initial promoters, at the top of the scheme, recruit investors who are expected to bring in more investors. Recruiting newcomers is more important than conducting business. Investors who get into pyramid schemes early take their profits from investors who join later.

All of the accused were scheduled to appear in court in Steinbach Thursday.
