It's crazy what greed & hubris makes some folks do. Madoff had it made prior to starting the fund - he was a big fish on the NASDAQ, was on the board for several various security regulatory agencies (NASD, SIFMA, SIA, Bond Market Assoc, etc), and close ties with all the various financial markets and the folks who regulate them. He could have had multi-millions by being honest, but got greedy - and now he's going to serve 150 while thousands of folks have been screwed out of their life savings for trusting him.
