  So ,have you ever heard the phase if it's too good to be true, then, i
don't know, probably is?
  I think whoever coined that phase probably talking about the Ponzi's
scheme, that's a scheme, that's a fraud that uses new investor money to pay
back the old one, so let me give you an example.
  so let's say John managed to persuade Ringo to invest 100,000 dollars in
his firm, and every year after that, John begins to pay Ringo 20,000 a year,
so Ringo, just like any one else would be, is really happy, thinking, yeah,
you know, look these great returns, I'm so excited, look my amazing return,
  but unfortunately what Ringo does not realize is that John is using Ringo's
original investment to pay him that money, that money actually comes from
Ringo's original investment, and then you have Paul jumping in, paying
another 100,000 dollar to the firm, and with the fraud grows, it gets bigger
and bigger, I think the person who know the most about the Ponzi scheme
is Burney Madoff, he actually runs a 65$ billion dollars, $65 billion dollar
is a huge amount, a Ponzi scheme and it began to unravel when some of his
investors began to pull their money out of the firm, and he didn't really
have enough money to pay some of the other investors, that's how he was
caught.
  OK, well, what sort of things should i watch out for?
        OK, so any one who guaranteeing little or no risk, that's a red flag,
because trust me, when I tell you that every single investment has some
degree risk, another red flag, possibly overly consistent return, because
nothing goes straight up, and according to the SEC, other red flags could
be unregistered investments, unlicensed sellers, issues with paperwork as
well, but in case when you are wondering where Ponzi scheme got its name
from, the answer is a man named Charles Ponzi, it's about 100 years ago,
he managed to defraud investors in new England of roughly 20,000,000
dollars, so that's how Ponzi scheme got its name, and sadly we are still
falling to them today.
