What People Do For Money

I came across some interesting stories regarding a favorite subject of mine, Argent AKA Money. 

It seems the Madoff ponzi scheme has taken its first victim, and not just in financial terms. 

Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet, 65, was found sitting at his desk with both wrists slashed, New York police spokesman Paul Browne said. A bottle of sleeping pills was on his desk and a box cutter lay on the floor.

The French investment manager had put $1.4bn in Madoff’s investment vehicles only to see them hit hard and was unable to find a way to recoup his investors’ money. 

In another twisted tale of the interesting times we live in, check out these lucky bastards who cashed in big.
