PONZI

Madoff Victims Vent

The victims of Bernie Madoff’s infamous $65 billion Ponzi scheme sent over 100 letters and emails to Judge Denny Chin venting their anger at the fraudster. “Sentence this monster named Madoff to the most severe punishment within your abilities,” wrote Randy Baird, a California lawyer. “We are too old to make up what we lost. We have to start over.” Many of the victims are elderly and retired. “At the age of 89, I find myself and my wife [86] devoid of future hope,” wrote one. “I find it hard to believe what he did to us and...all the charities affected by this bastard.” Investigators are currently seizing assets of the Madoff family and liquidating them.
