PONZI

Madoff Prepped For Prison Life

Perhaps he also got some tattoos? The Wall Street Journal reports that Bernard Madoff hired a prison coach to prep him for life behind bars at a medium-security penitentiary in North Carolina, and the coach tells The Wall Street Journal that his new digs will be a welcome improvement over the Manhattan jail where he was previously housed. Still, it's not going to be all fun and games. Another prison coach warns that Madoff can expect ample harassment due to the intense media coverage surrounding his legendary Ponzi scheme. The coach adds that there is a real possibility of inmates being paid by Madoff's victims to "intimidate" the 71-year-old swindler.
