Bernard Madoff, the Manhattan investment adviser who promised stellar returns to his A-list clients and instead defrauded them of more than $19bn in history’s largest Ponzi scheme, has died. He was 82.
His death was confirmed by the New York law firm of Brandon Sample, Madoff’s lawyer. Madoff’s home since July 2009 was the Butner Federal Correctional Complex in Butner, North Carolina, where he was serving a 150-year term. He requested compassionate early release, citing end-stage kidney disease, in February 2020.

As in the puppet masters box after the spectacle of a show- "Erelong these outward trappings, these visible treasures, these earthly vanities, these arrayed armies, these adorned vestures, these proud and overweening souls, all shall pass into the confines of the grave, as though into that box." ~ Baha'u'llah, Baha'i Faith

Good riddance he won't be missed, and the devil probably wait for him on the other side.

Maddoff not even close to Rotschilds/Rockerfellers Covid1984 planetary scam.

Netanyahu's man went to meet his sons. The only ones who knew exactly what happened and could have chirped were the juniors, both of whom died of "natural causes" … one committed suicide with about 10 stab wounds to the back, the other galloping cancer more contagious than an atomic bomb.

john butler says:

Died in a federal prison. Thats where the federal reserve bosses should be with the banks. They run the biggest ponzi schemes in the world.

RIP to a legend. You will be missed.

TJ Marx says:

That's a shame. Would have been nice to have seen him out of prison before he died.

Derick Chafton says:

I guess they buried him with all that money.

RIP. He was a good guy. His only mistake was to lose money of those that must not be criticized less you want to be labeled a anti-something.

With all the lies that Al Jazeera tells people it's nice to see something they can just report on.

In Pakistan many such companies with non sense names like "B4U" and "all pakistan project" are working from many years they give 10% of your invested money a month. Many of them flew away after some years. But again the economic situation we have people still invest in them for such a huge and easy profits
