I Recently Attended an Investment Seminar With a Friend, and I Have to Admit That the Pitch Sounds Pretty Good. Is There Any Way to Know if the Offer Is Actually a Ponzi Scheme?

Not every single investment seminar represents a Ponzi scheme, but it is always wise to approach these types of seminars with caution. Many fraudsters use these so-called “free lunch” seminars to lure investors into Ponzi schemes, investment scams, and other flavors of financial fraud.

Although it can be hard to really tell if the investment promoted at the seminar you attended is a scam, there are a few key “red flags” you can listen for, including:

  • Aggressive sales tactics or pressure to “buy now”
  • Complicated or secret investment strategies
  • Documentation that doesn’t match the pitch
  • “Guaranteed” returns that seem too good to be true
