|In late 2010, two years after he was first arrested for an $ 18 billion Ponzi scheme, Madoff possessions hit the auction market.|
Thousands of belongings from his New York City penthouse, including his used shoes, went on the auction block.
Bernard Madoff owned about 250 pairs of shoes.
|Madoff's mini fleet of boats were auction stars. A restored 55-foot Rybovich yacht named Bull fetched $700,000. Madoff's former 38-foot Shelter Island sport runabout, named Sitting Bull, went for $320,000. And the 24-foot Maverick center console he dubbed Little Bull got a winning bid of $21,000.|
A black 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK 320 convertible that belonged to Madoff's wife, Ruth, went for $30,000.
|Madoff's 4,000-square-foot duplex Manhattan penthouse sold for $8m, and a 8,750-square-foot home in Palm Beach $7.4m. Madoff's Montauk beach home sold for $9.4m|
|Morrell Wine Auctions auctioned off 262 bottles of wine and liquor that had been seized by federal authorities from Madoff's mansion in Palm Beach.|
The collection sold for over $41,500.
|While Bernard Madoff serves a 150-year prison term in South Carolina, five former employees were found guilty of conspiracy March 24 2014. A jury ruled they had for years helped conceal his massive Ponzi scheme.|
The verdicts were the first jury convictions since Madoff’s $18bn scam was exposed. Annette Bongiorno worked for Madoff for 40 years as his secretary and at one point had as much as $50m in her accounts. Bongiorno, 65, had multi-million dollar homes in Long Island and Florida and drove a Mercedes worth $100,000.
