About 13,500 former Madoff clients were named today in the first official filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. As the God Blog reported earlier, Sandy Koufax was added to the growing list of celebrity clients—Kyra Sedgwick, Larry King, Kevin Bacon, Steven Spielberg—swindled in the $50 billion Ponzi scheme.
But the same 162-page list that outed the Dodger great also spilled details about ordinary folk, including those who live here in Southern California. The L.A. Daily News has posted a searchable database of California Madoff victims. The searches list only names, cities and zip codes; no amounts were given in today’s court filing.
If you’re still craving more detail (sans dollar figures), you can download all of Exhibit A here, titled simply “Customers.” The list includes mostly individuals, trusts and funds—few charities and institutions—with some names repeated multiple times, which could indicate multiple accounts with Madoff.
