One area of consumer scams involves investments or securities. In good economic times and bad, there are always con artists out there trying to take your money by promising you unbeatable returns with little or no risk. Often the victims of these scams know the perpetrator from the local community — from church, work, or their kids’ school. These unscrupulous individuals leverage the trust that are placed in them in order to secure investment dollars with little to back up their promises. When it comes time to return the money or pay the promised profit to investors, they come up with a list of excuses and reasons for delay, but the money never arrives. Or if some money is returned, it’s possible they merely used money from new investors to pay the old investors — the classic Ponzi scheme.
