Is Cash App Pyramid Scheme illegal? What is Money Circle Scheme

So, finally, you have heard about the Cash App pyramid scheme. Like many other people, you might be confused and puzzled about the authenticity of this lucrative scheme. If so, don't worry, just read this post as I am going to reveal some facts and also put forward some hidden aspects of this suspicious activity.

 

There is no doubt that with the progress of time, payment systems have developed. As a result, money management and the task of sending and receiving money has also simplified. But, on the other hand, online payment systems have facilitated the online scam. The sad truth is that cases like hacking, unauthorized access to a bank account, and money stolen have become quite common. Latest, in fashion, the new Cash App scam is on the rise at a stunning level. People call it the money pyramid scheme on Cash App.

A unique thing about this scam is that it seems legitimate at first glance. Plus, many people could be seen describing this scheme as genuine and lawful. Due to which many innocent people get involved in it and end with losing their hard-earned money.

So, let’s understand how exactly it works. To help you understand its working principle, I am going to answer some of the most common questions.

What is the Cash App pyramid scheme $800? Is it illegal?

As the name suggests, a pyramid scheme is something like a human chain scheme. Which prompts one person to join a group by paying a fixed amount and bringing in other 3 or 4 persons in the group. Every new member has to pay a fixed amount as a joining fee. And as soon as one current member completes a target of adding new members into the group, he gets $800 or more as a reward money. This is the basic working principle of the money pyramid scheme.

However, different pyramid schemes may have different working principles. In some schemes, a member may have to buy some domestic products while some other groups accumulate money and give it to any member as a loan and earn interest. But, whatever may be the working principle of such a scheme, the Cash App pyramid scheme is illegal. And Square Inc doesn't support such kinds of activities.

What does the meaning of Cash App circle money mean?

Cash App money circle scheme is another name of the pyramid scam. Only the difference is that in a circle scheme, members need to create a circle. And according to reports, each circle may have 7 to 8 persons. Likewise, the pyramid scheme, in this type of scam also members need to pay entry fees and once the target is achieved, the user gets a handsome amount as a reward money. This scheme is also known as the Cash App circle game.

So, the point to bear in mind is that in such a scheme nobody gets anything. "Add people and get money" term is nothing but just a fake and smart trick to lure people to get Cash App free money.
