People ruined by rampant pyramid schemes in KwaZulu-Natal are generally reluctant to come out in the open after they have lost money trying to get rich quickly.

Like Gugu Ntuli, a mother of two from Greytown, who four months ago lost R64000 in the talk-of-the-town Travel Venture International Express (TVI Express). She said she was coerced into investing money and told to “relax, the money will start rolling in”.http://www.thenewage.co.za/15538-1008-53-Scammed_in_getrich_schemes
