In the wake of the well-publicized Bernie Madoff investment scheme, the word “Ponzi” has become a familiar addition to the nation’s vocabulary. Essentially, the Ponzi scheme is just another form of the pyramid scheme people have come to know. However, a Ponzi scheme has layer after layer of complications. Those who have been implicated, arrested or are under investigation for participating in a Ponzi scheme must seek legal assistance, and the faster the better.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission takes Ponzi schemes seriously and so should you. In cases involving millions of dollars and an array of implicated individuals, such schemes are very high profile and typically remain in the news for months or even years. This publicity combined with the harsh penalties meted out upon conviction can derail the lives of everyone involved.
