The Ponzi Scheme Database

This database is intended as a list of all Ponzi schemes uncovered and/or sentenced in the "Madoff era," and represents an extensive effort to provide transparency to the massive economic and societal toll of Ponzi schemes.  Ponzitracker would like to acknowledge the resources provided by  Chris Marquet of Marquet International provided substantial assistance in compiling data for this report.  For those looking for a more in-depth analysis of Ponzi schemes, the Marquet Report on Ponzi schemes provides an unparalleled look into Ponzi schemes from 2002 to 2011, and is available here.  Alison Jimenez from Dynamic Securities Analytics, Inc. was also instrumental in compiling the data and creating the visualizations below.

The database is interactive, meaning that users may sort by year, losses, or other metrics.

Disclaimer - This database was compiled using publicly available news sources.  As a general rule, the database includes schemes of $1 million or more.  The names and sentences displayed are based off news reports, and are not independently verified.  Please contact Ponzitracker here with any clarifications or comments.
