A Bradley Stoke woman has pleaded not guilty to two charges of operating a promotional pyramid scheme contrary to the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.
BBC News reports that Tracy Laurence, of Robbins Close, is accused of taking part in schemes known as Key to a Fortune and Give and Take.
The Bristol Evening Post reported in December 2009 that the Bradley Stoke woman is alleged to have made £46,000 from the scams.
Laurence, 57, along with ten other female defendants from Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Somerset, was released on conditional bail by Judge Mark Horton at Bristol Crown Court.
The court heard there will be two trials, with the first likely to take place next year.
