Let me start this by saying that he is a scumbag and I hope he rots in prison. I keep hearing about people who lost ALL of their savings and charities loosing all of their funds. Why the heck would people put EVERYTHING into this guys fund? Even if he was legit. When the market tanked like it did they may have lost a major portion of it anyway. Yes, I know the simple answer is greed. But, my god...It's not a safe secure account like a treasury bond. They were taking a risk. So to put it all in one place seems like idiocy. On the news last night they had an elderly couple who were concerned and asked their accountant about taking some out. He said it would be foolish to do that. Then you need to demand it. Again, I hope they squeeze every penny out of his wife and kids who I can guarantee knew about everything. He told his kids to turn him in so it would take the heat off them...Not coincidentaly his son's wife filed for divorce the day he turned his father in. Yet, a week or so later they were holiday shopping together and looked happy.
