"Bernard Madoff, the infamous architect of an epic securities swindle that burned thousands of investors, outfoxed regulators and earned him a 150-year prison term, died behind bars early Wednesday. He was 82."

The whole family was in on it as far as I'm concerned.

Good riddance. I just don’t get it. Must be greed because I’m sure he was doing well on the right side of the law. But, he had to go for the extra. That extra caused him to spend his final years incarcerated instead of enjoying it with family and friends.
Fuck him- hope he burns in hell.

An eye for an eye, just came to late. You know how many suicides he caused by stealing peoples life savings and retirement funds. No RIP from me😕

Burn in hell....I’d rather be robed at gun point.
Last I heard his wife was complaining she would have to survive on a few million. OH... I forgot she didn’t know anything nor did his sons?

The main ingredient for a con is greed, he conned a bunch of greedy investors. I don't condone his behavior but if it sounds too good to be true.......

He had the perfect targets, they give him a million up front and he sends them a piece of paper each year that shows they made 25%. Most let it ride decades.

Everyone lost in this scheme except her.
All greed motivated by all involved.

It’s my understanding it was his two sons who ratted Bernie out to the feds.

Both sons are now dead too. One hung himself and the other died of lymphoma.

Good riddance...
