A man went undercover to join a pyramid selling organization to rescue his father from the scheme in Haikou, Hainan province, recently.
The man's father, surnamed Yang, borrowed 70,000 yuan ($10,500) from friends and relatives, saying he was going to start a business with a friend.
A few days later, the son figured his father had been sucked into a pyramid scheme.
In a bid to gather evidence for the police and save his father, the son approached the group and expressed a desire to join the scheme.
He informed the police of his undercover operation, which eventually led to the arrest of the organizers.
It took the police hours to explain to the man's father that a pyramid scheme is nothing but a scam, which bears no fruit for the investors.
