It was dangerous being one of Melissa Caddick's friends or even family, as that made you a prime target for her crimes. In this episode, we look at how Caddick lured victims into a scheme that meant if you were her friend she was the one who would benefit. We explore Ponzi schemes and highlight the eerie similarities between the crimes of Melissa Caddick and one of the greatest financial criminals in history - Bernie Madoff.
