Meltdown Madoff

Section:

Madoff family finally relieved of their ill-gotten gains; victims now get back approximately 66% of their losses whilst Ruth Madoff goes shopping

 

Last week, what will hopefully be the final chapter of the sorry saga of the crimes of Bernard Madoff occurred with the retrieval of £17.8 million from the Ponzi schemer’s family’s late sons’ estates. The money, which will be redistributed to victims of the fraud, forms part of £9 billion or 66% of assets invested returned to victims of the £13.6 billion fraud.

A lawyer for the estates and families of Andrew and Mark Madoff, both of whom died in the wake of the scandal, told The New York Daily News:

“On behalf of the estates and families of Mark and Andrew Madoff, we are pleased to resolve all of the remaining civil claim. As we have stated from the outset, and as the facts have demonstrated, neither Mark nor Andrew was aware of Bernie Madoff’s heinous fraudulent scheme…. This settlement finally brings closure to Mark and Andrew’s families.”

 

Meanwhile, Ruth Madoff – whose luck plainly came in when she walked away with £1.9 million of her and her husband’s £62 million personal fortune in a deal with investigators immediately after the scheme was uncovered in 2008 – has been seen shopping in Old Greenwich, Connecticut in recent days. A resident, of spotting her, told The Steeple Times: “She now looks as if the weight of the world has been lifted from her shoulders” before adding: “It’s a shame it didn’t quite work out like that for so many others involved.”

  1. You wrote about her, “whose luck plainly came in” re: money she received to live the rest of her life on and quoted someone saying the “weight of the world plainly lifted off her shoulders”. She is surviving this horrible tragedy just like the other victims. She didn’t do anything, neither did her sons, who are both dead now, one by suicide because he was harassed relentlessly by the f’in media. Media villainizes her still, just like they villainized her sons. It’s sociopathic. Everyone has empathy for all of the other victims, as we all should, but on my part, his sons, their families AND his wife, all of whom it has never been proven knew about his crimes, should receive empathy as well. The comments are awful and ignorant calling them a “terrible family”. It was ONE man, not his family. Do you all think you should suffer the sins of YOUR father’s? I know this is a really old article but it really fired me up.
    I think this family, this woman has suffered enough and people should leave her the hell alone.
