New York, July 24 (ANI): Multi-billion dollar fraudster Bernard Madoff was a devious liar and cheat since the day he was born, reveals a new book.
"Bernie showed his con-man colours as early as high school, when he held an English class enthralled with an oral book report-one that he made up on the spot out of whole cloth," the New York Post quoted Jerry Oppenheimer, author of book "Madoff With the Money," as saying.
"He also robbed Uncle Sam out of two years of Vietnam War-era Army Reserve active duty by developing a case of nerves," he added.
The book also reveals that Madoff was "a serial Casanova" who got caught by his wife, Ruth, and allegedly had to pay out "hush money" to at least one of his female employees.
Moreover, one of Madoff's early Wall Street mentors, who supplied him with over-the-counter business, reputedly had close ties to the Chicago mob-"the genesis of Bernie's career," adds a source.
One of the Madoff's friend also told Oppenheimer that the 'Pozi' king couldn't even do addition or the subtraction. (ANI)
