The case examines the 'Ponzi Scheme' operated by Bernard Madoff (Madoff), a prominent Wall Street trader and former Chairman of NASDAQ,
through the investment management and advisory division of his firm, Bernard L.
Madoff Investment Securities LLC (BLMIS). During the investigation, it was
revealed that Madoff operated the 'Ponzi Scheme' since the 1980s. Though Madoff
was supposed to invest the clients' money in securities market, he deposited the
entire amount in a bank account in Chase Manhattan Bank. He fulfilled redemption
requests of his clients using this money. This fraud that amounted to US$ 50
billion became public with Madoff's confession on December 10, 2008.
It was the biggest financial fraud in the history of the US
affecting a large number of investors. Industry experts blamed the regulators
and investors for neglecting the warning signals which enabled Madoff to carry
on with the fraud for decades. The case ends with a discussion about the impact
of the scam on the already strained US economy.
