What Is A Ponzi Scheme?
A Ponzi scheme occurs when a corporation or individual promises investors a specific rate of return. Rather than invest the money, however, old investors are instead paid with new investors’ principal. SEC, FBI, DOJ and other agencies have devoted substantial resources to investigating and prosecuting Ponzi schemes and other forms of investment fraud. Those under investigation or indictment for these types of allegations tend to be high-profile individuals.
