New Documentary Exposes the Shocking Truth Behind the Infamous Ponzi Scheme Scandal
WASHINGTON, DC – Comparable to the dogged pursuit of Al Capone by Eliot Ness, “Chasing Madoff” is the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigator’s ten-year struggle to expose the truth behind the infamous Bernie Madoff scandal. Over the course of a decade, Markopolos pieced together a chain of white-collar crooks including international bankers, lieutenants, and henchmen, linked to Madoff’s devestating Ponzi scheme.
As the investigation deepened, the danger posed to Markopolis and his team grew. Finding himself trapped in a web of deceit and intimidation, the once unassuming Boston securities analyst turned vigilante investigator feared for his life and the safety of his family. In the end, Harry was armed to the teeth and fearful for his life and the life of his family.
