How the U.S. government turned to disgraced financier Bernie Madoff for help... on how to spot con artists
The Wall Street swindler behind the world’s biggest financial fraud had advised the U.S. government... on how to spot con artists.
Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff also, it emerged yesterday, boasted to President Bush’s top money market regulator about how much cash he’d made, insisting he was keeping the secrets of his Midas touch close to his chest.
The latest sensational twist in the mushrooming financial scandal came as 70-year-old Madoff fled his £6million New York apartment and went into hiding to escape furious creditors, many of them former friends and lifelong business associates.
Talk about Chutzpah!
