How many recent Ponzi Schemes are there?
The exact number is not known
It is impossible to provide the exact number of Ponzi Schemes because there is no central registry for all Ponzi Schemes cases. In 2010, 200 individuals and 250 entities were accused of carrying out Ponzi Schemes. Believe it or not, in 2012, millions of investors have been defrauded by Ponzi Schemes. It is interesting to know that over 30 people were sentenced in connection with Ponzi schemes involving over $775 million. Needless to say, it is said that new charges were brought in connection with newly discovered Ponzi Schemes involving more than $4.35 billion.
