The Greatest scams of all time A THREAD

1. THE PONZI SCHEME ... In 1920, Ponzi discovered arbitrage in the form of international postal reply coupons, each worth 5 cents. Coupons purchased in Spain at a pre-set exchange rate could be redeemed for a nickel back in the U.S. Thousands of people were attracted by his claim
2. THE MIRACLE CAR SCAM ... It was an advance-fee scam that ran from 1997 to 2002 by James R. Nichols and Robert Gomez. In its run of just over four years, over 4,000 people bought 7,000 cars that did not actually exist, causing over 21 million US dollars stolen from the victims.
3. SIR DRAKE ESTATE FRAUD ... This scam, which took place over 70 years before coming to an end in 1936, involved 28 swindlers who convinced people all across America that a wealthy individual named Jacob Baker of Philadelphia had died, leaving his estate behind with no heirs.
4. MATCHSTICK MAN ... International banks begged Ivar Krueger to let them invest, not knowing that his many companies existed only on paper, profitable only because they were invested in each other. It began to fall apart in the crash of 1929 when investors wanted to cash out.
