  61. Question
    10:47 am July 5, 2011 Permalink

    Matt said “UK pulled off Ledo”…is that a Providence type recruiting activity?



  62. Wayne Rooney
    10:48 am July 5, 2011 Permalink

    A ponsi scheme & a pyramid scheme are nothing alike. A pyramid scheme is illegal because you are not selling a product, but just paying fees to sell something & the money making portion of the opportunity is through the fees, not the product. A ponzi scheme uses investor funds to pay the returns of other investors.



  63. GummyBear
    10:50 am July 5, 2011 Permalink

    Ponzi Scheme: You collect money to invest for others, but you just keep the money for yourself and send the investor fake statements showing how their money is growing. You show good profits so more people will “invest”. As the early people want to take withdrawals, you have to have new investors to pay them back and keep it going.



  64. TT
    10:53 am July 5, 2011 Permalink

    Ponzi Scheme: a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to separate investors, not from any actual profit earned by the organization, but from their own money or money paid by subsequent investors. The Ponzi scheme usually entices new investors by offering returns other investments cannot guarantee, in the form of short-term returns that are either abnormally high or unusually consistent. The perpetuation of the returns that a Ponzi scheme advertises and pays requires an ever-increasing flow of money from investors to keep the scheme going.
    The system is destined to collapse because the earnings, if any, are less than the payments to investors. Usually, the scheme is interrupted by legal authorities before it collapses because a Ponzi scheme is suspected or because the promoter is selling unregistered securities. As more investors become involved, the likelihood of the scheme coming to the attention of authorities increases.

    I agree with Matt, with the year we are supposed to have next year and the defections, we need to reload for 2012 and 2013, every year will be a turnover and we want it that way.
