Some teenagers, apparently with the encouragement of their money-losing parents, have toilet papered the house of alleged Ponzi scheme operator Bernard Madoff, who is alleged to have run a $50 billion fraud:
Tidbits of toilet paper twisted in the wind at Bernard Madoff’s Palm Beach home Monday morning – possibly the work of some ticked off teens who lost their trust funds.
Some teenage boys called The Palm Beach Post newsroom Sunday evening to take credit for the prank – one they said was sanctioned by their parents. They said they were acting in retaliation after they lost their trust funds to the accused swindler.
A woman got on the phone to confirm their story, but no one would give their names.
By the time Palm Beach police arrived at the home Monday morning, the toilet paper was gone and the housekeeper chose not to make a police report, police spokeswoman Janet Kinsella said Monday morning.
While Madoff sits with an ankle bracelet binding him to his Park Avenue apartment, his Palm Beach mansion apparently sits as a great temptation to all.
Madoff touched the lives of many…negatively…including some famous names. It was recently revealed, for instance, that Zsa Zsa Gabor (who was perpetually middle-aged until she got into an accident a few years ago) lost $10 million (a mere bag of shells…). Other celebrities who lost their designer shirts investing with Madoff include husband-wife actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Oscar-winning film director Steven Spielberg, Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel and Eric Roth, writer of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
