Abstract:

Disgraced Montreal financial adviser Earl Jones orchestrated a Ponzi scheme that defrauded his investors of $50 million over two decades. CBC correspondent gained exclusive access to the Jones bankruptcy proceedings led by forensic accountant Gilles Robillard, who combed through boxes of checks, ATM and credit card statements dating back to 1987. Robillard takes reporter Hana Gartner through the money trail, admitting that he's never seen anything like it. The Fifth Estate finds out how Jones orchestrated the scheme and how he was able to get away with fraud for so long. The program also raises questions about when Jones' bank realized that his business transactions were suspicious.
