Ponzi Schemes Ruin Dreams...


Charles Ponzi gave the Ponzi Scheme its name. He wasn't the first, and won't be the last investment con artist. There's always a Ponzi scheme operating somewhere, stealing fortunes from unwitting investors. This book shows you how to spot a Ponzi scheme, and discover the tell-tale signs that an investment is too good to be true.

Learn about the top 10 Ponzi Schemes of all time, and how these criminals fooled investors, regulators, and even finance experts with promises of secret deals and wealth creation. Charles Ponzi, Bernard Madoff, and scores of others preyed upon unsuspecting victims with smooth talk, secrecy and psychology.

This book breaks down each investment scam in detail, from how victims got tricked into investing large sums of money they couldn't afford to lose, to how the perpetrators eventually get caught. You'll learn how each of these crimes unfolded and how they collapsed. You'll discover the red flags that are always present, if only you know where to look.

White collar crime is more prevalent than ever, and the biggest Ponzi scheme ever to exist will implode soon. Today's frothy financial markets provide exactly the right conditions for a market meltdown and Ponzi scheme collapse, bringing financial ruin to all involved.

This Ponzi Scheme book was written for both seasoned investment professionals and ordinary people seeking to safeguard their retirement funds. Once you understand the art of the con, you won't end up a victim of the con game. For fans of Wall Street, investing, investment psychology and behavioural finance.
