Participants In The Madoff Investment Scandal
Investigators are looking for other participants in the Madoff investment scandal besides Bernard Madoff, despite Madoff's assertion that he alone was responsible for the large-scale Ponzi scheme.[1] Harry Sussman, an attorney representing several clients of the firm, stated that "someone had to create the appearance that there were returns," and further suggested that there must have been a team buying and selling stocks, forging books, and filing reports.[1] James Ratley, president of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners said, “In order for him to have done this by himself, he would have had to have been at work night and day, no vacation and no time off.

Recovery Of Funds From The Madoff Investment Scandal
There have been attempts for the recovery of funds from the Madoff investment scandal. The Madoff Trustee, Irving Picard, reports recoveries and settlement agreements of $11.079 billion, of which $9.271 billion has been distributed or committed[1] to victims of Bernard Madoff. As it has been concluded that no legitimate investments were made on the investors' behalf for at least the last 12 years, recovery has proceeded on a "money-in/money out" basis, without regard to the false investment statements provided to investors.[2] These false statements, representing what investors believed they owned, combined to a total balance of approximately $64 billion. In a series of payments now up to a sixth round, victims have recovered $9.16 billion, more than half of the $17.5 billion reportedly invested

Chasing Madoff
Chasing Madoff is a 2011 documentary film written and directed by Jeff Prosserman. The film is based on the book by Harry Markopolos.Contents1 Summary 2 Cast 3 Reception 4 References 5 External linksSummary[edit] The film chronicles how Harry Markopolos and his associates spent ten years of investigation in an attempt to expose Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, which scammed an estimated $18 billion from investors. The film implies that the systemic problems exposed in the movie have not changed. Indeed, it is far harder for a fraud victim to prevail. In 2009, the Supreme Court required a plaintiff to establish his claim before any disclosure is required by the defendant. Labels and conclusions" and "a formulaic recitation of the elements of a cause of action" will not suffice.[3] Thus, correct statements about fraud, when not supported by appropriate documentation, will lead to a dismissal of the claim
