Speak Asia, which was registered in Singapore, was introduced in India in early 2010.

 The company had promised lucrative returns through a multi marketing pyramid model.

 return the investor had to fill survey forms, which were later found to be fake, for certain

 MNCs for promised annual payment of Rs 52,000.

mid-2011. The company duped over 24 lakh investors. The amount of scam went up to

 Rs 2,276 crore. A number of cases had been registered in different states. According to 

police, Speak Asia had remitted over Rs 900 crore to Singapore. The money was sent 

from India to the banks in Singapore and from there to Dubai, Italy and UK. However

, the money came back from UK again to UAE (Dubai) and to India.
