Victims of hedge fund fraudster Arthur Nadel’s $400 million Ponzi scheme have until tomorrow to file a claim for restitution.
Proof of claim must be mailed to the Nadel receivership estate in Tampa, Fla. Nadel’s Scoop Management ran three hedge funds, and the 77-year-old also managed three other hedge funds on behalf of Neil and Christopher Moody, whom Nadel implicated in his February guilty plea. Investors lost some $162 million in the fraud.
Through April, court-appointed receiver Burton Wiand had recovered only $8.8 million for the victims, although he had more than 100 lawsuits, seeking more than $71 million, pending.
Nadel is set to be sentenced in October, and faces more than 24 years in prison.
