Mike Musclehead has started a
new job selling gym memberships door-to-door. Mike decides, without knowledge
of the gym owners, to add a twist; he starts selling a "lift-a-pound"
investment program. For $100 you buy into the program and every time you
increase your maximum lifted weight, you get $1 per pound. Mike pays the
rewards from the money he collects as investments in the lift-a-pound program.
Mike is addicted to the high life and uses part of the investment funds to buy
clothes, a new car, a sweet apartment, etc. Soon enough, there are not enough
new investments coming in to keep up with the rewards.
Disappointed investors sue the gym and Mike.
