The New York Post reports today that some family members of self-confessed swindler Bernard Madoff are considering a name change:
UNLESS you’re Bernie Madoff and living under house arrest in a luxurious penthouse, it’s not easy being a Madoff these days. That’s why some family members are considering changing the last names of Bernie’s grandkids, who go to one of the more prestigious prep schools uptown, sources say. There is also buzz that Deborah Madoff, wife of the alleged Ponzi scammer’s son, Andrew, didn’t move fast enough when she filed for divorce the day before the scheme collapsed. “Whatever she negotiates in a divorce settlement, she won’t be able to collect,” said one insider. “She’ll be treated like all the other creditors.” Lawyers for Andrew, Deborah and Bernie had no comment.
One comment: We would too.
