By using true tales of thieves, swindlers, and fraudsters at work, Financial Serial Killers illustrates how these perpetrators get their hooks into investors' wallets, savings accounts, and portfolios--and never let go. The worst financial crisis since the great depression revealed that thousands of mom-and-pop investors had lost millions to so-called Mini-Madoffs. They are the thieves and con men who had used phony financial acumen to steal investors' money, wipe out savings, and damage lives. Financial Serial Killers reveals the cons (from the grand to picayune) advisers cultivate with their victims--relationships that are essential to the fraud. Take the story of Lillian, the little old lady who invested with Warren Buffett, one of the richest men in the world. After her husband died, she thought her family's treasure of $24 million in stock controlled by Buffett was safe. It was--until a relative introduced the eighty-nine-year-old grandmother to a pair of unscrupulous insurance agents who convinced her to reinvest her savings in life insurance--decimating her nest egg while padding the agents' pockets. Lillian's story, as well as other accounts of deceit and fraud, is the core of Financial Serial Killers. Readers will learn how to better protect their family's wealth and savings after reading this book.
