The bank's financial intelligence unit said it had investigated the business and concluded that it had all of the operational elements of a pyramid scheme.

It said the scheme's members made money solely by getting new people to invest.

The bank warned that anyone taking part in such a scheme would eventually lose out when its pyramid structure collapsed.

It is urging people not to put any money into One Link Pacifica or any other get-rich-quick-schemes.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact the Central Bank's financial intelligence unit.
