Abstract:

"... A glimpse of investment criminals. They come in all shapes and sizes: smooth operators, penny stock promoters, bogus traders, those who perpetrate fraud not for personal gains but to save face embezzlers and white collar criminals, to name a few. You will meet: a Lutheran minister who conned others but lost the money to a group of con artists himself ; boiler room operators who flog worthless "gemstones" and penny stocks ; the Sirianni brothers who manipulated the price of a VSE stock through 57 accounts with little money of their own ; a group of people who manipulated the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange through fraud and ingenious schemes; Judith Manning, whose penny stock enterprise sold millions of worthless stocks ; Christopher Horne (who besides gaining a reputation as a patron of the arts) forged clients' signatures and committed fraud amounting to over seven million dollars; and, Yasuo Hamanaka, the Tokyo copper trader at the centre of one of the most expensive international fraud cases."-- Money digest, review, June 1997.
