The National Consumer Commission joined forces with the Asset Forfeiture Unit of the National Prosecution Authority and Financial Intelligence Centre to put the brakes on a pyramid scheme called Up Money (Pty) Ltd . This has led to the freezing of bank accounts and seizure of assets including three luxury motor vehicles.
