Product Description

Is Your Money Safe?

Many investors faced financial ruin after investing in Ponzi Schemes with Madoff, Stanford and Wall Street crooks, often unknowingly through complex feeder fund arrangements. You'll learn how these white-collar criminals operate, fooling even the most sophisticated investors. You may be invested in one of these Ponzi schemes yourself, through your mutual fund, pension or retirement funds, yet not even know it.

Most of the all-time biggest Ponzi schemes collapsed during the last financial crisis, but the worst is yet to come. Today's volatile markets have peaked, and the coming stock market crash will expose these white collar crimes. Experienced investors and industry professionals alike will be caught in the carnage. Today's volatile financial markets and uncertain political climate are exactly the right conditions for a Ponzi scheme collapse, and financial ruin for many investors. But there is a way to avoid disaster--if you know what to look for.

Learn how to spot Ponzi scheme red flags and keep your money safe. Spot the warning signs, take action, and avoid being a victim.

You'll learn the tricks Bernard Madoff, Scott Rothstein, and others used to defraud investors for years, and the mistakes that ultimately exposed them. Get Anatomy of a Ponzi today and keep your investments safe!
