How investment fraud appears
A legitimate investment opportunity might sound so beneficial that a business person cannot resist. There are many fraudsters who take advantage of entrepreneurs less specialized in detecting a good investment and get trapped in money frauds instantly. Unsolicited phone calls, letters or emails offering one-time-only investments might arise from nowhere, announcing business opportunities you cannot miss.

- Consider the benefits of due diligence and some verifications before making an investment.

What is the Ponzi scheme?
The Ponzi scheme is the most met type of investment fraud which involves big investors (companies, business, etc.) investing sums of money in small investors with the promise that the profits will come from the sale of a product or other assets. These type of investors become an important source of funds without them seeing any money. The Ponzi scheme was invented in the early ‘20s by Charles Ponzi, a businessman from Boston, USA, however, such fraud scheme was initiated by a woman named Sarah Howe who started a programme named “Ladies deposit” through which she convinced women to deposit money for which a monthly interest rate was given. Certain investment plans are offered to innocent and naive persons who act as investors for which they do not get anything in return.
