In his first extensive interview since being jailed in 2008, the disgraced former financier Bernie Madoff has revealed he is receiving weekly therapy sessions.
From his jail cell, the arch-swindler Bernard Madoff might finally be doing a little something to help the thousands of investors whom he bilked out of billions of dollars.
Another week and yet another Ponzi scheme has come to light.
The fiancée of Bernard Madoff's surviving son has provided a glimpse of life in the shadow of history's biggest fraud, revealing how Andrew Madoff has thrown himself into music and new business ventures as a whirlwind of recrimination continues to swirl around him.
Bernie Madoff was able to con thousands of extra investors by using a British bank which "looked the other way" and ignored repeated warnings that he was engaged in a sophisticated fraud, according to the man charged with recovering their losses.
So arch-fraudster Bernard Madoff had a copy of Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them. The notorious perpetrator of history's largest pyramid scheme had Al Franken's book on his shelf when the FBI finally closed in. He had numerous other appropriate volumes, with titles such as Chutzpah, In the Shadow of the Law, and End in Tears.
