Target: Fed Workers
Wayne McLeod, 48, a father of five, killed himself in June as the Ponzi scheme he ran collapsed. McLeod gave government-sponsored seminars to federal employees, notably DEA, FBI and others in law enforcement, on how to maximize their work benefits. He donated to their charities. The seminars led to landing the law officers as clients for his special program that he touted as returning 8% to 10% per year. It was a decades-long scam involving 260 investors and $34 million in lost money.
