Ponzi Victims Coalition

Welcome

Welcome to the Ponzi Victims Coalition website.

This is a site dedicated to the presentation of information about fraudulent "Ponzi" investment schemes, including those foisted on the investing public recently by Tom Petters and Bernard Madoff. The founders of the Ponzi Victims Coalition are dedicated to pursuing legislative and litigative actions to mitigate the devastating effects these schemes have had upon fundholders, pensioneers, stockholders, and all investors -- direct and indirect -- in these tainted investment instruments.

As a quick guide to this site, visit the Pages and Political Action tabs to find documents and other resources that you can use to become politically active, as well as contact information for your local U.S. Senators and Representatives, Congressional Committee members, and Executive Branch officials. Feel free to start a new discussion about your personal experiences or viewpoints on the Ponzi schemes in the Discussions tab. Or click on one of the Petters/Madoff news links at the bottom of this Home page to keep abreast of the latest news in these scandals.

And always remember to look at the Latest Activity section just below to see the new postings and information since your last visit.

Site Update

Now that Bernard Madoff has a new home and new attire, justice has been served and that's the final chapter of the story, right? Wrong! The tens of thousands of investors who were bilked by Madoff, Petters, Stanford, and others are still as impoverished -- in some cases penniless -- as ever. There still exists no legal recourse for indirect victims, and there can be no true recompense until there is.

Please continue to visit us here and help us to take action as we pursue our efforts for justice and restitution to be served -- fairly and equitably to all.
