The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled, after a trial on the merits, that Defendants, on their own and through representations by independent contractors, violated Section 5 of the FTC Act by making false and material claims that consumers participating in the Five Star program could lease their “Dream Car for Free" and earn a substantial income. The court further ruled that Defendants were operating a pyramid scheme and therefore violated the FTC Act by failing to disclose material information that because of Five Star's pyramid structure, the majority of participants had not and could not achieve the promised car or income.
