Recovering Losses Caused By Investment Misconduct

What Should I Do If I’ve Lost Money in a Ponzi Scheme?

Once a Ponzi scheme is uncovered, the victims of the scam are often left feeling confused, concerned, and wondering what to do. Since Ponzi schemes are constructed to be believable, many victims have been receiving fake account statements or even receiving fraudulent payments, and the news can come as a big shock. If you have lost money in a Ponzi scheme and need guidance, here are two important steps you should take as soon as possible.

Collect All Documents Related to the Ponzi Scheme

This may seem like an obvious step, but it’s important that you start gathering and organizing the information that you do have about the scam while it is fresh in your memory. If you have been the victim of a Ponzi scheme, you should collect all records and documents relating to the scam.

This should include the following:

  • Your account statements
  • Your bank records and cancelled checks
  • All communication, including letters and email
  • Any initial or informational documents you received
  • Promotional materials and advertising for the offering

If you believe you can rely on the documents found during the investigation, think again. Often, these records have been deleted, destroyed or were never kept by by the fraudsters at all!
