Ponzi schemes can take different forms, but the essential issue is dishonesty, sometimes on an almost unbelievable scale. As distinct from pyramid schemes, which involve participants recruiting many more participants in order to benefit, Ponzi schemes tend to be operated by a small number of individuals who deceive investors with the promise of high yields and who keep suspicion at bay by paying good "returns" to a few of them. Sometimes the scheme is highly complex, taking many years to unravel; sometimes it is primitive.

In recent years, perpetrators of Ponzi schemes have achieved extraordinary notoriety (and jail sentences), while investors are left trying to figure out what to do to reclaim their lost money. In some cases, such as when an established brokerage firm is involved, it is possible to pursue legal claims and recover lost investments.
