I was visiting the website of Pyramid Scheme Alert, a bogus "consumer organization" that purportes to target illegal pyramids, but instead spends most of it's time targetting legitimate Multi-level Marketing companies. While browsing through the site, I noticed this -
The Amway/Quixtar Scheme is seeking to suppress the research and testimony of PSA Director, Eric Scheibeler. Please help with a contribution to the Legal Defense Fund.
And then some links for people to donate via PayPal or by mail
Which lead me to ask – what legal case are they asking for donations for?

First of all, I started to hunt around the PSA website to find details of this legal case where Amway/Quixtar is trying to suppress Eric Scheibeler.
A google search finds "Scheibeler" mentioned on 6 pages on the site -
Here, he's listed as one of the Director's of PSA. Interesting, I didn't know that. Nothing about any legal cases though.
Next is the home page, nothing mentioned there except the part I quoted.
Here is a link to Scheibeler's "book" and yet another plea for donations for his legal defence.
Just another plea for donations.
Here's the actual legal defence donation page. It just says -
Our current case involves efforts by the Amway/Quixtar scheme that is seeking to
suppress the free speech of whistleblower
But what's the case? Not a word.
This is a letter to the Attorney General of Utah, where PSA again demonstrates it's complete lack of understanding of what an illegal pyramid is. Scheibeler is mentioned on the letterhead as a director. That's it.
So – nothing at all about what the actual case is.
Next stop – amquix.info, Larsen seems to get kept up to date on Amway/Quixtar court cases – surely he knows?
