Madoff victims receive largest payout yet

Checks totaling $2.48 million were mailed on Wednesday

The victims of Ponzi-schemer Bernard Madoff are about to recover a little more of the enormous sums of money they lost. On Wednesday, the trustee who is liquidating Madoff’s company, Irving Picard, mailed checks ranging from $1,784 to $526.9 million to 1,230 of the fraudster’s former clients.

This payout is the largest to Madoff victims to date and brings the recovery to $3.63 billion—more than tripling the previous total.
