A Ponzi scheme is a type of investment fraud that pays existing investors with funds raised from new investors. Ponzi scheme organizers often promise to invest your money and generate a high return with little or no risk. But in many Ponzi schemes, the scammers do not invest the money. Instead, they use it to pay those who invested earlier, and can keep some for themselves. For more information on Ponzi scheme frauds and scams, see this article on our blog:
