Do you know anyone on the Madoff customer list?
CFO StaffFebruary 5, 2009

The customer list for Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities was released on Wednesday as part of a New York bankruptcy court filing. The list that runs 162 pages is filled with the names and addresses of individuals, companies, trusts, pension plans and other entities that invested in the firm that is now under investigation for allegedly orchestrating a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

Among the notable customers listed by name is baseball hall of fame pitcher Sandy Koufax and Madoff’s defense attorney Ira Sorkin. It was reported in early January that actor Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick, as well as screenwriter Eric Roth, were also among the investors who were allegedly scammed by Madoff.
