The first federal court hearing in the case against Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing accused of a pyramid scheme has been delayed until March 13.
Today, February 7, 2013, Fortune Hi-Tech officials issued a statement through Reputation Partners, a Chicago-based public relations firm
“We deny any wrongdoing and will vigorously contest the allegations and efforts to close our business,” said the statement by Fortune Hi-Tech founder Paul Orberson and CEO Thomas Mills. “The claims made by the FTC and attorneys general do not accurately describe how we manage Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing, and fail to acknowledge that we manage the business well within both the spirit and the letter of the applicable law.”
The founder of Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing, Paul Orberson, could not be reached for any comment. He has been a major contributor to UK Athletics.
