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

Have you ever heard  a phrase if it's too good to be true, then I don't know, probably is I think whoever quote that phrase is probably talking about the Ponzi scheme, so that's the scheme, that's a fraud that uses new investor money to pay that old one, so let me give an example:

So let's say John managed to purchase 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 anyone else I believe is really happy, thinking, yeah, you know look at the great returns, I am so excited... my amazing returns. But unfortunately what Ringo dosen't realize is that John is using Ringo original investment to him that money, that money actually come form Ringo original investment. And then you have Paul jumping in pay another 100,000 dollars to firm, and the fraud grows, it gets bigger and bigger. I think the person who know the most about Ponzi scheme is Burney Madoff, he actually managed 65 billon dollars, 65 billion dollars is a huge amount, a Ponzi scheme and it began to unravel when some of the investors began to pull their money out the firm. And he didn't really have money to pay some of the other investors, and that's how he was caught.

OK, well, what sort of things we should watch out for? OK, so anyone guaranteeing little or no risk, it's a red flag because trust me while I tell you every single investment has some degree of risk. Another red flag, possibility overly consistent return, becuse nothing goes..up. And according to SEC, other flag reds could be unlicensed investments, unlicensed sellers, issues of paperwork as well. But in case you are wondering where the Ponzi scheme got its name from, the answer is a man name Charles Ponzi, so a hunder years ago he managed to defraud investors in England about 20 million dollars, so that's how Ponzi scheme got its name, and sadly we are still falling for them today.
