Victim Impact: The Fraudcast is a podcast series investigating one of the largest Ponzi schemes in Canadian history. Rashida Samji's complex and mysterious fraud scheme resulted in over $110 million in losses and affected the lives of hundreds of victims. The podcast is created by Theatre Conspiracy with a live theatre production premiering in June 2018. The podcast is written and narrated by Tim Carlson and co-produced by Kathleen Flaherty (PTC) and David Mesiha.
In the largest Ponzi scheme in B.C. history, former notary public Rashida Samji and financial planner Arvin Patel drew family, friends and their communities into a vast web of deceit between 2003 and 2012.
Theatre Conspiracy’s new documentary show Victim Impact investigates mysterious aspects of the case, following it through the courts and down the money trail. The show looks at the fallout for those affected as they got sucked into the vortex of civil and criminal trials. Over two hundred people were ripped off in the fraud scheme involving over $110 million.
