The Ponzi Scheme
In 2008, filmmaker Billie Mintz had a friend who was an "investment advisor" and was making tons of money on a investment. After convincing his friend to let him in on the investment, Billie gave him all the money he had. Three weeks later he discovered that all his friend's money (along with all of his own life savings) were all gone. He had been a victim of a Ponzi scheme. Having no idea what that was, Billie went on the road to get the story and to find the man who stole his money.
In The Ponzi Scheme, Billie tracks down the man responsible for scamming people out of millions of dollars while learning exactly how a Ponzi scheme frauded him and countless others out of their life savings.
