I feel bad of course for the foundations and charities caught up in the scandal but as far as the rich jerks who lost money I could care less. I am working class and I live in a very rich area, where these people would summer/vacation and they would treat the year-round working people like crap. Ive heard stories where I live that some have had to cancel weddings and country club memberships. I don't feel bad for them at all.Answer Question

Even though you may not sympathize with wealthy individuals who lost a lot of money, really, you should! The people who invested their millions with Madoff OWNED businesses, hospitals, charities, and entertainment/recreational outlets, and EMPLOYED 1000's of people. If these business owners are unable to recoup their losses, guess who will be feeling it...yes....you and me!
Just as an aside HSBC is the bank that is responsible for ALL retail chain credit cards (just look on the bank of your retail charge cards)...they LOST over $1 BILLION investing with Madoff! If you think this won't affect your interest rates, think again! This scheme is going to have a far reaching trickle down effect!

Im not saying it won't affect me, Im already poor so what the hell do I care. Now they can see how the rest of us live. As I said these are the people who vacation and summer where I live that would treat you like crap. They would treat you like you didn't have the right to breath, total douche bags. So its hard for me to sympathize, these are people who have huge houses with guest cottages and people where I live, 2 to 3 people rent a room for $1,000 a month each, thats right a room. Ive worked for these people, the pay crap and treat you like crap. The would complain about anything from toilet paper to make of the grill that they will only use for a week tops.
