What Defines a Ponzi Scheme?
In a Ponzi scheme, initial investors are promised a high rate of return,
typically with the promise of little to no risk. These investors are then
paid using funds raised from newer investors, thus giving the illusion
of a safe and successful investment.
In some cases, legitimate investment ventures become Ponzi schemes after
early investors express anger or dissatisfaction with their returns. To
appease these investors, parties will “give in” and pay them
back with other investor funds.
If you contact us early, we may be able to prevent charges from being filed
against you. Do not wait to schedule your
free case evaluation.
Operating a Ponzi Scheme is a Serious Federal Crime
Ponzi scheme accusations are especially serious due to both the large amount
of damages, as well as the fact that these crimes are typically tried
in federal court. They are investigated by intimidating federal agencies
like the SEC, FBI, and FTC.
To make matters worse, you may be charged with additional crimes beyond
fraud, such as conspiracy, tax evasion, and even money laundering. For
these reasons and many more, you need strong, experienced defense from
a skilled Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer.
