Financial fraud, whether large or small, is a persistent feature of the financial markets. If you scratch the surface of the investment world you’ll find a continuous stream of major financial scandals which are almost unbelievable in the sheer scale of their subterfuge. 

 

The Con Menis a wry look at some of the biggest names in the investment world and the frauds they have committed. Fast-paced and witty, it unpicks the financial scandals of the last few years and tells us what we need to know to protect our money in the face of greed, betrayals and lies. It offers up valuable lessons we can use to protect our investment, by answering the crucial questions:

 

-   Who are the fraudsters?

-   Why do frauds and mega-frauds happen?

-   Why are there more frauds during market booms?

-   Why can’t the regulators stop them?

-   How can I protect myself without overpaying for phoney protection?
