Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is fascinating and well written. It looks into what makes up a Ponzi Scheme, how often they occur (according to Cross about once a year... since the middle ages!) and how many fraudsters are psychopaths. He also details the life and fraud of the man for whom the phenomenon was named Charles Ponzi. Other chapters cover; Chapter 4. Nineteenth Century Swindlers - Ponzi Pioneers (followed by a slew of other famous Ponziers) Chapter 5. Paul Burks Chapter 6. Marc Dreier Chapter 7. Nevin Shapiro Chapter 8. Ioan Stoica Chapter9. Damara Bertges (even women can be schemers) Chapter10. Scott Rothstein Chapter11. Tom Petters Chapter12. Allen Stanford Other chapters cover Chapter 17. Spotting Ponzi schemes and... Chapter 20. a prediction of the next big Ponzi"
