Anorak | The Great Magic Cheese Pyramid Con

The Great Magic Cheese Pyramid Con

by | 22nd, January 2009

YOU want the “magic cheese”. Put down the scrotum. The foreskin. And take up the magic cheese:

France is investigating what it says is a scam mounted by a French woman who sold thousands of Chileans kits to make “magic cheese” for French beauty products, an official said on Tuesday.

Gilberte Van Erpe, who was arrested and placed under investigation in France last year, is suspected of setting up a vast pyramid scheme, telling buyers the fermented mass produced by the kits could be sold to cosmetics companies in France.

A cheese pyramid?

A French investigator, examining magistrate Sylvie Gagnard, will fly to Chile to register the lawsuits of thousands of people who claim they were victimized, said Isabelle Montagne, a spokeswoman for the public prosecutor’s office.

Chile cheese? On your face…?

“We call it the ‘case of the magic cheese’,” Montagne said.
