In a Friday, Dec. 9, 2009 photo, Tom Annis, 63, poses for a picture at his home in Jacksonville, Fla. Mr. Annis is a victim of a Ponzi scheme in which he lost $270K. He was led to believe the men heading the scam were trustworthy through commercials and a talk show held on a Christian radio station. An Associated Press analysis of all 50 states shows that the recession caused nearly four times as many Ponzi scheme collapses in 2009 as there were in 2008. (AP Photo/Jake Roth)
