Major UK Athletics donor accused of ‘massive pyramid scheme’
Lexington-based Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing operated a “massive pyramid scheme” involving more than 100,000 people and hundreds of millions of dollars, kentucky.com reports. The company involved in the pyramid scheme, Fortune Hi-Tech, was founded by Paul Orberson in 2001.
A prominent figure, the University of Kentucky built a Paul Orberson Football Office Complex in 2002 after he made a $1.6 million contribution. He has been very generous to UK Athletics, reportedly donating at least $638,000 over the years.
Now that state regulators has shut down Hi-Tech Marketing his generosity will end and talks of the possibility of removing his name from Nutter Training Facility has surfaced.
