Now you’re just being a hater. If you would sit with these people for half hour you would understand that they are just incompetent businessmen. Meant-to-be-lifetime-employees who thought they struck gold.

Good, honest, hardworking, uneducated guys.

Honestly, they took “investments” and GUARANTEED the principle (making it a loan). They never understood the difference, and so were never able to turn around and tell anyone- Sorry, this investment failed and you lost your money.
where is the rule that only competent businessmen are capable of making a ponzi scheme? the definition  of a ponzi is using someone elses investment to pay to pay prior investors without having a way to pay the later investors ( without taking newer investors) which seems like thats what happened here
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Wrong re Madoff, wrong re these guys
You keep asserting that without giving any reason to believe that it is reality based.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Can we stop arguing whether it's an official, certified Ponzi scheme?

We can all agree, they had a business, it wasn't doing well and to pay off existing obligations, they took advantage of people, who will probably end up with a thousands of debt, bankruptcies, wrecked credit............

Moral of the story? look at the title of this thread.

They clearly write in the email that the last year it became a Ponzi scheme. The money they swiped went to no business operations.

..hey, why was the email deleted?

Maybe their lawyer got involved and suggested that confessing publicly was not a good idea?

Deleting here won't delete it from the inboxes of their victims.

I am the one who posted and then deleted. I was torn between loshon horah and trying to warn people for the future. Bh I was not involved but know a few people who are deep in CC debt because of this.

Still not sure if I did the right thing posting it. In my opinion they should have done it in a way to make the chargebacks easy and then file bankruptcy.

Well you have to look at Ponzi scheme, in general a criminal one is where you have a fraudulent business and keep borrowing to pay the earlier investor's.

Why didn't they just work out a deal with earlier investor's? They were worried about a take over?

While the business may not have been a Ponzi scheme, borrowing from A to pay B is a Ponzi act.

I think it should be posted everywhere and every person should know about as this is only one of dozens of people swiping cc's and it's about time people realize people get screwed.
