Serge Alexandre Stavisky (20 November 1886, Ukraine – 8 January 1934, Chamonix) was a French financier and embezzler whose actions created a political scandal that became known as the Stavisky Affair.
In 1927, Stavisky was put on trial for fraud for the first time. However, the trial was postponed again and again, and he was granted bail 19 times.
The New Yorker's Paris correspondent described in 1934 the Stavisky's fraud scheme as follows:
"The scheme [...] was his emission of hundreds of millions of francs' worth of false bonds on the city of Bayonne's municipal pawnshop, which were bought up by life-insurance companies, counseled by the Minister of Colonies, who was counseled by the Minister of Commerce, who was counseled by the Mayor of Bayonne, who was counseled by the little manager of the hockshop, who was counseled by Stavisky."
The Stavisky Affair led to fatal riots in Paris with fourteen deaths, the resignation of two prime ministers and a change of government. The location of Stavisky's wealth (more than sixthy millions contemporary dollars ) is still unknown.
