Madoff Victims from Kuwait

 

Other investors for whom Toub is listed as the agent include the Public Institute for Social Security, apparently a reference to the Kuwaiti government agency; the National Bank of Kuwait; and Safra National Bank of New York, controlled by the Safra family of Brazil.

Some of the victims of the Madoff Ponzi scheme which lost $50 billion of investors funds are apparently Kuwait's PIFSS and NBK (not sure if NBK is on behalf of clients or their own investments). Interesting enough the same article cited above from the International Herald Tribune also appeared in the New York Times but did not mention PIFFS.

Other investors for whom Mr. Toub is listed as the agent include the Safra National Bank of New York and the National Bank of Kuwait.

Thanks for the link to the IHT article. Most detailed article I've read on the victims of Madoff... including ADIA! As Sebastian Brant said in 1494: "The world wants to be deceived."
