Anatomy of a Ponzi Scheme


Philadelphia partner David Shechtman spoke at a CLE seminar titled “Anatomy of a Ponzi Scheme” on Aug. 12 in Philadelphia.

The program addressed recent high profile cases that highlight the common characteristics of Ponzi Schemes with a focus on legal and tax issues affecting perpetrators, victims and trustees.

David’s presentation analyzed the availability and timing of theft loss deductions for victims of fraudulent investment schemes, as well as tax consequences of later distributions from bankruptcy trustees to claimants.
