Madoff: I Suffer More Than My Victims

9

madoffThe man behind history’s greatest Ponzi scheme says he’s in greater pain than his victims. Bernie Madoff emailed NBC News to say the pain he caused so many is “nothing” to the pain he suffers from losing his children.

“As difficult as it is for me to live with the pain I have inflicted on so many, there is nothing to compare with the degree of pain I endure with the loss of my son’s Mark and Andy.”

Mark committed suicide in 2010, 46, two years after his father’s arrest. Andy, 48, died last September while battling cancer.

“I live with the knowledge that they never forgave me for betraying their love and trust.” Read more at NBC News.

  1. how dare he!! it is sad that his children have died, but why would he have expected them to forgive him? he shamed his children. his pain should be for the knowledge of what he did to them even if he has no pain for the people whose lives he ruined.

  2. “As difficult as it is for me to live with the pain I have inflicted on so many, there is nothing to compare with the degree of pain I endure with the loss of my son’s Mark and Andy.”

    In THIS regard, he is %100 percent right. It is incomprehensible to adjust to losing children during ones lifetime R”L. Putting aside, his failings, this can not be taken lightly.

  3. then repent & return the money that your wife is holding for you now. that’s the money you stole from people billions.

    repent before its too late.

    YOU can never return money (stolen or charging rich customers more then others etc….) once you leave to the olam ha’emes & then you have no choice but to return to this temporary physical world to pay it back.

    ITS NOT WORTH IT TO BE FORCED TO RETURN TO THIS WORLD…. be %100 percent honest in all your dealings so that when your mission is over in this world your neshama (soul) can rest in peace forever.

  4. A lesson that money is not the answer to
    seekers of happiness. Hashem has granted us a
    roadmap – our HOLY TORAH to teach us the way
    to true purpose in life by following the
    Mitzvos asei and lo sa’asei which prevent
    tragic pitfalls like the above case. If only
    he would know THEN what he knows NOW…
