Madoff with the Money
It was the biggest Ponzi scam in history and it might have continued had Bernie Madoff not blown the whistle on himself. When Madoff admitted the impressive returns his money management firm seemed to be making was all a scam, it unleashed an investigation that found at least $50 billion in assets simply vanished.
Madoff was an equal opportunity schemer -- ripping off both Hollywood A-listers like Kevin Back and Kyra Sedgwick AND regular mom and pop types who presumed their life savings were with one of the most reliable guys on Wall Street.
Exposed with Deborah Norville shows viewers how Madoff set up his fraudulent operation, who was helping him behind the scenes and the infuriating story of the whistle blower the SEC ignored.
