Abstract:

Is your money safe? Charles Ponzi lent the Ponzi scheme its name, but he is not the first, or the last, to dupe investors with this age-old con. The biggest Ponzi scheme of all time is operating under the radar right now, unknown and undetected by regulators and unsuspecting investors. Learn how to spot a Ponzi scheme and discover my stunning prediction of exactly where, when, and how this massive Ponzi scheme will collapse finally. Could you be a victim and not know it? Many people were unaware their money was tied up in Bernard Madoff's fraud. Find out what makes these fraudsters tick, and learn how Tom Petters, Scott Rothstein, and other fraudsters amassed billions before their arrests. -- Provided by publisher, taken from cover.
