Fellow Inmate Claims Madoff Is Hiding $9 Billion
June 21, 2010
US (ChattahBox) – Bernie Madoff is back in the headlines, after an unidentified prisoner close to the Ponzi schemer told the New York Post that he had hidden away $9 billion in three different accounts.
According to the anonymous source, Madoff knew the feds were closing in, and so sent $3 billion with three close friends or family members to hide the assets.
But Madoff is allegedly worried that his partner, Frank DiPascali, is coming forward with the three names in order to cut a better deal, and reduce his own prison sentence.
The idea that he has hidden away some of the fortune he amassed during his criminal ripoff isn’t surprising. But would he really brag about it to other inmates?
