Ponzi Scheme Defense
At Bachner & Associates, PC we handle a wide range of white-collar defense cases, including those involving allegations of operating a Ponzi scheme.
A Ponzi scheme is an investment ploy in which someone solicits money from initial investors and promises them a good return on an investment, which can be but isn’t limited to things like stocks or hedge funds. Instead of paying investors with actual growth of this asset, the person uses investment money from new investors to pay the initial investors, making them believe they are getting a good return on a strong asset.
Naturally, this process can only go on for so long, and the operator and investors at the top of the pyramid are the only participants who see any profit.
