About Charles Ponzi
The fraudulent investment business model which Italian con artist Charles Ponzi popularised in the 1920s continues to thrive in modern times under the moniker, “Ponzi scheme”. He had immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1903 in search of greener pastures but moved to Montreal, Canada four years later to work in a bank called Banco Zarossi where he first saw the scheme in operation. His company, the Securities Exchange Company was used to promise its clients 50% profit on their investment within 45 days.
He was the son of Imelde and Oreste Ponzi of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna administrative region. He married Rose Gnecco in 1918 and they divorced in 1937, following his deportation from the United States after his prison sentence.
He died on January 18, 1949 at age 66. His health had continued to worsen after suffering from a heart attack in 1941.
