This book explains how Ponzi schemes operate: how they differ from pyramid schemes, Ponzi finance, and other financial arrangements; the schemes of Charles Ponzi, Bernie Madoff, and Allen Stanford. It includes case studies from the UK, New Zealand, and the US related to bitcoins, the FBI, and other schemes by Kenneth Wayne McLeod, Allan McFarlane, Kautilya Nandan Pruthi, Jacqueline Bradley, and Trendon T. Shavers. Other related topics include schemes that focused on Amish communities, by John M. Sensenig, Monroe L. Beachy, and Timothy Eugene Moffitt; what behavioral finance can reveal; psychological factors; and solutions. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
