Abstract
The practice of Ponzi schemes is still widely found today. This study aims to implement and develop role-playing method on learning Ponzi scheme investment for undergraduate students. In this semi-experimental study, there were 27 students involved and treated as sample who were selected randomly. A set of scenarios was given to the students within 10 sessions of two hours of lecturing and implementing role-playing. The role-playing was evaluated by using observation and reflection, questionnaires and focus group. The results showed that there was an enhancement of understanding the Ponzi scheme investment. It can create positive awareness about investment in Ponzi Schemes among undergraduate students but this method has not been able to develop financial skills effectively.
