Someone is usually discovered as a genius when their work is understood, and they are the for-runner of something brilliant. To say your head would explode if you worked out this plot says it all. Not a genius, just outright banksters cooking the books. Please do not call be a genius if I do this!

If it was up to a million dollar scam a person can only hope for a lottery win or a really good week at the casino but 60+ billion? Nothing can be hoped or dreamt to solve the problem

Money money money. The investors did so because of the great returns they were getting, that’s why Ponzi schemes keep coming. Basically if something sounds too good to be true it generally is

Stop the supid music!

Bernie Madoff isn´t a Schmuck, he is a genius!

He lived luxurious a couple of decades thanks to the greed of blockheaded morons:

Ponzi schemes is an everyday occurrence in the USA.

As for the Greek "hero" H. Markopoulos, I feel sorry for him, he should instead watch the whole spectacle from his corner and LL, laugh at it loudly! Instead he made his mathematical calculations and warned ECC five times to reveal the fraud. Probably Mr Markopoulos classic education was not as extensive as mine and did not know the story I will narrate bellow:

First of all, I take my hat off for the tasteful choosing of the music. Second I take it off again for the smartness of Mr Madoff to pinch so many greedy idiots in the nose! You need brains to do it. Most of the investors had enough money to spend and enjoy their lives to the end of their earthly days. Mr Madoff did it at the expense of their greed!
So to speak, if you can't enjoy your money, I can do it for you instead! Super Intelligent.
So take off your hats instead and don't feel sorry for the stupid ones.

There is an ancient Greek story when an old rich Athenian had treasures hidden out in the countryside . Many knew that he had treasures hidden somewhere but not where they were hidden. A few individuals decided to shadow him and see where he was going at nights. Finally they managed to see him walking long into the fields and stopping at the back of an oak tree. There he lifted a large stone and sat for a while and stared into a hole, then he put his right hand inside moving it to and fro as if he was caressing something. Then he rubbed his hands, rolled the stone over the hole and went away completely satisfied. When he was out of sight, the guys walked there and lifted the stone. They couldn't believe their eyes to see so many golden coins and valuable things. Of course, they emptied the hole and took everything with them, while filling the cavity with stones and debris and putting on the hole the heavy stone. The next time the old man went to check his treasures, he found only junk in the hole and in panic ran to Agora/ bazar in Athens and screamed hysterically about what had happened to him. One of the guys who was there present tried to comfort him without releasing that he was one of the thieves. He told him to continue going there as he used to do before and staring and caressing the junk instead. Anyway, you had no benefit from your treasures, said the guy. So, what does it matter if you go there as you used to do before and with great care as pathetically stare and caress at the garbage!

How many others are doing the same thing?

Typical Jew.

I worked very hard all my life. Yet I have a small amount of money in my 401k. I am very disappointed in myself about that. However when I see these people who have lost everything, hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions, I don't feel so bad about myself. I just didn't save enough. But most of these people had it made and it wasn't enough. Having a beautiful home, money in the bank, friends and family, and yet they threw it all away. Greed will kill you.

WHAT ALL THESE FILTHY RICH JEWS DID BLEW UP IN THEIR FACE. THEY BOUGHT INTO THE ZIONIST JEW BRAND. THEY LEARNED THAT THEY HAD A SNAKE IN THEIR OWN BED, AND SHAKESPEARE WAS A HARBINGER OF THE ABILITY OF JEWS TO MANAGE OTHER PEOPLE´S MONEY TO THEIR LOSS AND THE MERCHANT´S GAIN.
THIS IS JUST A TINY BLIP IN A LONG HISTORY OF KHAZARIAN CONVERTS FROM RUSSIA. FOR ONCE, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.

SEC really F'd up ...big time..
Many accounting forensic types we're very suspicious for years...and that one man wrote detailed reports 4 or 5 times over 10-12 years with evidence. They did nothing!!
