So have you ever heard of the phrase 'if it's too good to be true'? Then I don't know probably is. Every time we point that phrase, we probably talk about Ponzi Scheme. That's a scheme. That's a fraud. That's new invested money to pay back old one. Let me give you an example. So let's say John managed to persuade Ringo to invest $100,000 in his firm. And every year after that John begins to pay Ringo $20,000 a year. So Ringo, just like everyone else would be, is really happy, thinking 'Yeah, you know, looking at these great returns, I'm excite, look at my amazing returns'. But what Ringo doesn't realize is John is using Ringo's original investment to pay him that money. So that money comes from Ringo's original investment. And then you have Paul jumping in, paying another $100,000 to them. And the fruits of growth get bigger and bigger.
I think the person who would know most of a Ponzi Scheme would be Bernard Mandoff. He actually ran a $65 billion. $65 billion is a huge amount of Ponzi Scheme. And it began to unravel since someone began to pull their money out of the firm. And he didn't really have the enough money to pay that investor and this is how he was caught.
What's the thing we should watch out for? So anyone guaranteeing little or no risk, that's a red flag.'cuz trust me every single investment has some degree of risk. Another red flag, possibly overly consistent return because nothing goes straight up. And according to the SEC (Security and Exchange Commision 美国证券交易委员会), other red flags could be unregistered investments, unlicensed sellers, issues with paperwork as well. But in case was wondering where Ponzi Scheme got its name from, the answer is a man name Charles Ponzi, so 100 years ago, he managed to defraud the investors in New England of rough $20 million. And that's how Ponzi Scheme got its name. And saly we're still falling for them today.
