Fort Myers Florida high school basketball coach Robert Schnepp has been charged with larceny and fraud due to an alleged Ponzi scheme which allegedly netted $200,000 from ten victims. Mr. Schnepp ran the boys’ hoops program in Cypress Lake High school while convincing parents and coworkers to place their funds in his care. Mr. Schnepp promised his investors he would invest their money in the stock market. In this classic Ponzi scheme, Mr. Schnepp allegedly kept money for himself while transferring from new investors to repay older investors to keep an appearance of successful investments. He also fabricated account statements to mislead investors. The scheme fell apart when investors sought to cash in on their supposed returns, leaving Mr. Schnepp to write false checks to buy time. Once the checks bounced, investors alerted the police. Robert Schnepp was charged in Lee County, Florida with 37 counts of fraud and larceny.
