Six convicted over £20m 'pyramid' scheme
Six women have been convicted of operating a "pyramid" scheme in which thousands of investors lost money.
The "Give and Take" scheme operated in south-west England and south Wales five years ago, Bristol Crown Court heard.
The scheme had collected more than £20m from about 10,000 people, often vulnerable women.
Three other women had already received suspended sentences for promoting the scheme.
