The Edmonton Filipino community is reeling after multiple members were defrauded by a Ponzi scheme allegedly masterminded by one of their own.

As Scott Fralick reports, at least 49 people — many of whom were in Canada on work visas — lost between $2,000 and $35,000 in the scheme under the guise of investing in the Workers Compensation Board.
