Prosecutors Hunting Millions In Additional Assets In Madoff Case

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — Federal prosecutors in New York are seeking over $5 million in assets belonging to a former office supervisor for jailed financier Bernard Madoff.

The government said Tuesday that it has traced houses in Manhasset, N.Y., and Boca Raton, Fla., and other assets to the long-time Madoff employee, Annette Bongiorno. Prosecutors previously had traced $3 million in assets to her.

Bongiorno has not been criminally charged in the multi-billion-dollar fraud that resulted in a 150-year prison sentence for the 73-year-old Madoff.

Her lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Authorities say Madoff cheated thousands of investors of billions of dollars. He said their $20 billion investment had more than tripled when it actually was nearly worthless.
