Bernard Madoff allegedly got away with a $50 billion Ponzi scheme that duped many of the smartest people on Wall Street. The party went on for years. The SEC ignored repeated warnings and missed some pretty big red flags.

2. financial companies identify Ponzi schemes before investing a dime?
3. Individual investors (including wealthy investors and famous celebrities) from failling into this trap over and over again?
