Madoff Client List Includes Rich and Famous

The UK Guardian reports on the recently released Madoff client list, which includes quite a few rich and famous people:

A list of the many thousands of people who invested with Bernard Madoff has been released, including several prominent British society figures and a number of well-known Americans from the world of politics, sport and Hollywood.

The 162-page roll call of potential victims of Madoff’s alleged $50bn (£34.3bn) fraud was published late last night. Among the 13,567 individuals, trusts and private bank accounts is the name John G Malkovich, although there is no confirmation that this is indeed the famous actor.

Names include family trusts belonging to the Kissinger family, and the American actor, Barbara Bach (pictured left), the wife of the ex-Beatles drummer Ringo Starr – although again there is no confirmation that this is the former Bond girl.

The list also includes John Denver Concerts and John Denver Enterprises, Sandy Koufax – one of America’s greatest baseball pitchers – and Frank Lautenberg, senator for New Jersey. Fred Wilpon, owner of the New York Mets baseball team, is one of many names to appear multiple times.
