MadeOff lets you run off with all the money

Online gaming network Cellufun plans to unveil a new mobile game on Monday called MadeOff, which allows players to create their own Ponzi scheme.The game’s name is a play on Bernie Madoff, the recently convicted mastermind behind the biggest known Ponzi scheme in history. …

Gamers playing MadeOff will engage in the same basic activity. You can choose to be a fund manager, trying to coax other Cellufun players into investing in your fund. You can then use their CelluPoints–the game’s currency–to pay off some investors, while stealing the rest for yourself. Fund managers will have a menu in the game that allows them to post ads on the network that can be searched by investors. The ads mention what the fund manager is promising as a rate of return on the CelluPoints invested.
