Ponzi schemes are businesses that can be established in joints for $150, if the hideout is at least level 2.

Ponzi schemes gradually accumulate a stash of dirty money based on how liked the gang is. At any point in time, the gang can completely swipe all of the scheme's stashed money, which will hurt how liked the gang is.


  • Investor Party: By spending $500, the gang can host a party to encourage people to buy into their ponzi scheme, increasing the scheme's efficiency by 20.
  • Middleman: By spending $700, a person unrelated to the gang can be hired to cash in the scheme's money, halving the damage that taking the scheme's money will do to how liked the gang is.
