The Swindler Before Him

I was a financier, swindler and con-artist
By the name of Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi
But you know my scheme
Where I steal money from my new clients And pay my old clients with their money Bernie Madoff used my scheme decades later
Until he got caught
I did not work for my money
I swindled money out of people
Only to get caught
So I fled to another city

I may have influenced other wealthy financial souls
Like Arthur Basel and Victor Lustig
I died broke and poor at a charity hospital

In Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
On January 18 1949
What is my true name?
What is the name of my scheme?
