Madoff Provides Big Payout in Ponzi Scheme….er, Lottery

A lighter post, but this was too good to not share with you all. A New York man has won $1,500 by playing the last three digits of Bernard Madoff’s prison number in the New York lottery. According to the New York Daily news, the man saw the number on the front page of the paper where it was published along with Madoff’s mug shot. Says the New York Daily Mail, “The $1,500 prize is a 16,000% return on his $9 investment – far more than even Madoff promised his bilked investors.”
