November 2020 Ponzi Scheme Roundup

Posted by Kathy Bazoian Phelps

Below is a summary of the activity reported for November 2020. The reported stories reflect at least 9 new Ponzi schemes worldwide, 1 guilty plea, over 34 years of prison sentences, and an average age of approximately 60 for the alleged Ponzi schemers. Please feel free to post comments about these or other Ponzi schemes that I may have missed.  

Joseph S. Anile II, 56, was sentenced to 10 years and prison and ordered to pay $3.2 million in restitution in connection with the Oasis International Group Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors out of $72 million. The scheme involved foreign exchange trading that defrauded at least 700 investors.
