What Is a Ponzi Scheme?
A Ponzi scheme is using money from investors for one’s own personal gain. It works by enticing investors with promises of high-yield, short-term investments. Instead of paying out profits to investors, they keep the profits derived from investments and circulate the money among themselves.
There are two typical ways where Ponzi schemes are exposed:
- When the amount of investments decreases, and the wrongdoer cannot cover the losses.
- When the schemer tries to disappear with investor funds.
