    Montreal's Madoff

    Actually, no evidence of a Ponzi scheme, but I guess the Sunday night editor at the Globe & Mail isn't too bright or creative.

    You are cordially invited to toss my salad. There's an app for that!

    Montreal has at least 2 "Bernie Madoff"-type cases.

    1. Vincent LaCroix, ex-CEO of Norbourg Asset Management, served 18 months of a 12 year sentence for "bilking thousands of investors of $100 million." He got parole, and was granted bail for his next trial for additional charges.

    2. This Earl Jones guy has disappeared, and left a weird message on his answering machine, saying he can't remit payments for 30 days.

    And it seems like a Ponzi scheme.

    We're starting to sound like the Blue Board by rehashing rumours from 3-4 years ago.

    We should stick to the facts & stop bringing back stupid, ancient stuff about people that are so 'passe', who have long stopped having a presence either in the biz or in cyberland.

    What i'm saying is that some of us should once & for all 'get a life' and stop bringing back the past. It gets boring after a while.

    There may be no evidence of a Ponzi scheme at this time, I suspect that there may be a few irregulatities popping up later.

    True!

    However, when i do it, i talk about myself, it's not about others.

    (Ancient stuff? C'mon, don't be so harsh! I was only born in 1851, after all....that's still quite young in board years. At least i'm not as old as Louis XIV or Zeus, the Greek God. )
