This first venture into a non-fiction book by mystery author Colleen Cross offers a wealth of information on the top ten Ponzi and pyramid schemes that occurred over the last century. The principles of these financial frauds are explained in plain language that anyone can understand. The personal history provided on each major fraudster enables us to understand the thinking behind some of the biggest frauds in history, thereby adding a human perspective to these crimes. The author also includes tips on how to spot a fraudster and predicts when the next big Ponzi scheme will be revealed.
