[Homework]2014-04-11&04-13 提升“财商” 不做庞氏骗局牺牲品

So have you ever heard the phrae if it's too good to be true than, I don't know, probably is. I think we have coined that phrase, what is probably talking about the Ponzi scheme. That is a scheme not a fraud that uses new investment money to pay back old ones. So let me give you an example.
So let's say John manages to persuade Ringo to invest 100,000 dollars in his firm and every year after that, John begins to pay Ringo 20,000 dollars a year. So Ringo, just like anyone else will be, is really happy thinking yeah, looking at these great returns, I'm so excited, look at my amazing returns. But unfortunately what Ringo doesn't realize is that John is using Ringo's original investment to pay him that money. So that money is actually coming from Ringo's original investment. And then you have Pual jumping in, paying another 100,000 dollars to the firm. And the fruits of the growth gets bigger and bigger. I think the person who would know the most about Ponzi Scheme is Berni. He actually runs 65 billion dollars. 65 billion dollars is a huge amount of Ponzi Scheme. And it began to unreval 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 and that's how he was caught.
OK, what sort of thing should I watch out for. So anyone guaranteeing little or no risk, that's a red flag because trust me when I tell you that every single investment has some degree of risk. Another red flag possibly overly consistent returns because nothing goes straight up. And according to the SEC, other red flags could be unregistered investments, unlicensed sellers, issues with paperworks as well. But in case of wondering where the Ponzi Scheme gets its name from, the answer is a man named Charles Ponzi. It's about a hundred year ago, he managed to defraud investors in new England of roughly 20 million dollars and that's how Ponzi Scheme got its name and sadly we are still falling for them today.
