New York, Aug.24 (ANI): Bernard Madoff, who confessed to masterminding the world's biggest Ponzi scheme, is reported to have told his fellow inmates in a North Carolina prison that he may not live for too long, and could be dying of cancer.
According to the New York Post, Madoff, who swindled over 65 billion dollars, has been taking about 20 pills a day for his cancer.
"He talks about it all the time. He's not doing very well," one inmate was quoted, as saying.
The prisoners did not confirm that's the form of cancer he's suffering.
His lawyer did not return messages yesterday but, when previously asked by The Post, would neither confirm nor deny his client has cancer. A lawyer for his wife, Ruth, also did not return messages. (ANI)
