    Oregon's government says, however, at http://www.cbs.state.or.us/dfcs/secu...f/gifting.html

    Gifting clubs and pyramid schemes

    Many Oregonians are being defrauded by unlawful pyramid schemes operating under the guise of so-called "gifting clubs"

    such as the Dinner Club or Women's Empowerment Network. These "clubs" are elaborate scams designed to make money for a few at

    the expense of many.

    The promoters of the scheme claim that IRS regulations allow people to "gift" one another up to $10,000 per year tax

    free. For example, persons are asked to pay $5,000 to enter at the bottom of the pyramid or "tree" along with others. As

    these people encourage others to join the club, they rise on the tree to the top position, where the total amount collected

    from "gifts" is $40,000, a $35,000 profit. Often, people at the top re-invest another $5,000 and start the process anew.

    Each of the eight persons just entering the tree delivers his/her $5,000 "gift" directly to the person at the top of the

    pyramid. This also helps convince new players that they will eventually receive a $35,000 return on their "gift."

    These schemes are doomed to failure. Each "tree" involves 8 persons who "gift" $5,000 each. The person at the top of the

    tree gets $40,000 and the other 7 people hope that enough players come on board to push them to the top. For each person at

    the top, there are 8 people who are likely to lose their investment and the chance of a big "payoff." Eventually, these

    schemes collapse because they run out of prospective participants.

    No matter what the promoters may tell you, gifting clubs are illegal. They are unlawful pyramid schemes. Gifting clubs

    and pyramids have not been approved by the Oregon Attorney General, local district attorneys, or the Division of Finance and

    Corporate Securities. Operating or participating in a pyramid scheme violates Oregon's Unlawful Trade Practices Act, which

    imposes civil penalties of up to $25,000 per violation.

    Gifting clubs and pyramid schemes may also violate Oregon securities laws by virtue of being investment contracts. Oregon

    law requires securities to be registered and licenses for persons engaged in transacting business in securities. A violation

    of the securities laws could subject a person to civil penalties of up to $20,000 per violation, or criminal prosecution as a

    class B felony.

    The IRS does not recognize gifting clubs or pyramid schemes and considers all money gained from these schemes to be

    reportable income. Failing to report income from pyramid schemes on your tax return, or attempting to hide such monies may

    subject you to severe federal civil and criminal penalties.
    What can you do?

    Don't participate! If you have, ask for your money back.
    Warn others not to get taken in by these schemes.
    Call: Your local law enforcement agency, the Division of Finance and Corporate Securities, or the Oregon Department

    of Justice Consumer Protection Hotline (877) 877-9392, and report the promoters. The Department of Justice has a web page

    which specifically addresses pyramids.
