A pyramid scheme that typically goes by the name “Woman Empowering Woman,” has landed two senior staff members of a Burnaby care facility in hot water.
The pair was fired from St. Michael’s Centre after the union learned they were allegedly duping colleagues out of their money.
Dave Lefebvre from Providence Health Care says they learned about this incident two weeks ago and have launched an investigation.
“Part of the issue we’re having though, is that we have not heard from any victims whatsoever. So, although we know that two of the individuals were involved in this scheme, we have not heard from anybody who has come forward and said they were a victim.”
The scam targets mostly women. None of the people living in the care home were targeted.
