One of the most uncomfortable facts surrounding the Bernie Madoff case was that he was allowed to continue operating for years despite all the evidence about this fraud being gift-wrapped and delivered(on more than one occasion) by Harry Markopolous to the SEC. Despite the clear evidence handed to them, the SEC looked the other way. Interestingly, and coincidentally, JPMorgan was a key player in the Madoff case, and this summer the Trustee in charge of liquidating Madoff’s firm sought $19bn in damages from JPMorgan, accusing the bank of being ‘an active enabler for the Madoff Ponzi scheme’.
