Question #1:

The list of victims who lost money in Bernard Madoff’s alleged $50 billion Ponzi scheme is like a who’s who of the financially savvy. Madoff produced consistently better than average returns and he allegedly kept multiple sets of books, generated his own statements, and hid his activities from regulators for many years. How did Madoff manage to keep his scheme going without notice? What was the SEC’s overall responsibility? Provide an example of another financial scam(s) other than Madoff’s and Dreier’s that have occurred since? How were they similar/different in nature?
