The Banking Industry

Thank you again Kathy for the educating us all about Ponzi schemes and protecting East West. It was useful, and we all found it professionally interesting as well.

Douglas P. Krause
EVP / General Counsel and Chief Risk Officer
East West Bank

As the Co-Chair for the ACAMS Southern California Chapter, we are always looking for topics to present that are current and would bring value to our members. When I came across Kathy’s bio and had the opportunity to hear her speak, I knew immediately that her knowledge and expertise should be shared with our members in the anti-money laundering industry. Kathy spoke on Ponzi schemes and the potential liability it presents to financial institutions. Her informative presentation raised the awareness of Ponzi schemes by sharing “red flags”, court cases and lessons learned which went over well with the audience. Thanks to Kathy for conducting a wonderful presentation. The information she shared was timely, beneficial, and well received by our chapter members.

As one of the leading attorneys representing Irving Picard in the Madoff matter, I find your expertise in the Ponzi world not only to be incredibly impressive, but your perspectives always valuable and exceptionally practical -- a superb resource for practitioners and market players alike.

Regulatory Receiverships

I have had the opportunity to hear Kathy Bazoian Phelps speak at many conferences/events involving Ponzi schemes/fraud. Kathy is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker, who, in addition to offering the technical and legal perspective on the topic(s), brings her real-world experience to the subject matter. As a speaker, she is always a dynamic and impactful speaker/panelist.

Stephen J. Donell, Receiver

Kathy's presentations were pivotal in making our annual conference a success. As I reviewed the conference with our members, Kathy's name and speeches were often mentioned as highlights. We were impressed by her practical insight and drawn in by her engaging, personable style. She was well prepared with substantive material, after all she wrote the book on Ponzi schemes, and thanks to her interactive approach, she was also well received.

Owen Fuller, Executive Director of the National Association of Federal Equity Receivers


Anti-Money Laundering Industry

As the host of the web seminar, I had plenty to worry about, so it was nice to know she was well prepared and very knowledgeable on the subject of Ponzi frauds. She delivered an excellent presentation. I hope to have an opportunity to work with her again in the future. This was truly an enjoyable experience.
