Charles Ponzi

The man for which the “Ponzi Scheme” was named! Crime doesn’t pay but it WILL temporarily buy you a few things!

So in looking into this episode and researching, I can tell you there are more sources than I originally thought for this guy. It’s easy to start with Wikipedia but after digging a little deeper, I learned the numbers behind what he did and how substantial it was for his day.

Extrapolate his “earnings” to today and he is a formidable criminal. His tragic end and his quick fall are only part of this story!
