Results of The Ponzi Scheme Blog’s DECEMBER POLL

Posted by Kathy Bazoian Phelps

The DECEMBER POLL asked the following question:

“Are prison sentences for Ponzi schemers the right length?”

The choices were:

     (a) Should be longer
     (b) Should be shorter
     (c) Are just right
     (d) Don’t know
The results were:
  • The overwhelming majority voted that prison sentences should be longer (80%).
  • A very small minority (only one vote) felt that prison sentences should be shorter (3%).
  • A somewhat larger percentage felt that sentences are just right (16%).
  • Nobody was uncertain about their opinion on this one!
