Hear from the FBI Case Agent who worked the notorious Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities Ponzi Scheme investigation. Learn what it took to convict Madoff and his fraudster co-conspirators. Hear about aspects of the investigation not released to the public. Learn about some of the key players involved, and see photographs taken during search and seizures (including Madoff's office).  

This fascinating case study will detail the complexities of an investment scandal that cost its victims billions of dollars, and the trial that resulted in the convictions of five defendants on thirty-one guilty counts.
