1920 photo of Charles Ponzi, the namesake of the scheme, while still working as a businessman in his office in Boston A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation where the operator, an individual or organization, pays returns to its investors from new capital paid to the operators by new investors, rather than from profit earned by the operator.
