A ponzi scam lures new clients into putting money into an investment opportunity that doesn’t really exist. Their funds are used to pay previous investors in an attempt to portray the scheme as presenting a genuine investment opportunity.
Earlier investors are unaware that they are only receiving funds from newly sourced clients, not from a scheme with any reality. The most famous ponzi of this type in The Netherlands was Palm Invest.
This elaborate investment scheme involved selling real estate in Dubai to Dutch investors. The real estate never in fact existed.
Victims of Fraud working through Interludium BV were involved in the tracking down of Palm Invest’s assets and those of other similar schemes in The Netherlands and Benelux regions, as reported in various press releases.
