"From Ponzi to Madoff, this book unmasks the secrets of financial swindlers and tells you why people find it so hard to resist these charming rogues" (Bloomberg News). Filled with true tales of thieves, swindlers, and fraudsters at work, Financial Serial Killers illustrates how these perpetrators get their hooks into the wallets, savings accounts, and portfolios of unsuspecting investors. In the worst financial crisis since the great depression, thousands of people lost millions to so-called Mini-Madoffs. Financial Serial Killers reveals the cons, big and small, that dishonest advisers cultivate with their victims. Take the story of Lillian, who thought her family's $24 million in stock controlled by business magnate Warren Buffett was safe. It was—until a relative introduced the eighty-nine-year-old grandmother to a pair of unscrupulous insurance agents whose advice decimated her nest egg while lining their own pockets. Lillian's story and so many more like it are at the core of Financial Serial Killers. Learning from these examples, readers will be more prepared to protect their family's wealth and savings from the con men who'll take every opportunity to take everything.
