Madoff Dying of Cancer
There are rumors circulating that Bernie Madoff is dying of cancer.
He supposedly has been telling his cell mates that he is not long for this world. The NY Post is reporting that Madoff is dying of pancreatic cancer.
The paper cites inmates at the prison in North Carolina who say the convicted Ponzi schemer takes about 20 pills a day to treat his terminal illness.
"He talks about it all the time. He's doing very well"- The Post quotes an inmate.
He's also, reportedly, undergoing Native American cleansing rituals.
According to the paper, Madoff's lawyer will not confirm or deny the rumors.
Madoff, 71, is serving 150 years at a federal prison for swindling more than $65 billion from investors.
Is this just another scam to get people feeling sorry for him? Or did Madoff know he had cancer a long time ago and conned people out of billions so he could live the high life during his last years on earth?
We may never know the truth.
