February 2021 Ponzi Scheme Roundup

Posted by Kathy Bazoian Phelps 

Below is a summary of the activity reported for February 2021. The reported stories reflect at least 3 new Ponzi schemes worldwide, 1 guilty plea, over 62 years of prison sentences, and an average age of approximately 51 for the alleged Ponzi schemers. Please feel free to post comments about these or other Ponzi schemes that I may have missed.  

Edison Denizard, 41, of Florida, was sentenced to 4 years and 9 months in connection with a music concert scheme. Denizard, along with his co-conspirator, Andres Fernandez, represented that investor funds would be used for specific music concerts by top artists. Victims lost about $7.5 million in the scheme. Fernandez previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced last year to 10 years in prison.
