“The SEC roars like a mouse and bites like a flea.”
– Harry Markopolos
OPUS 2010 keynote speaker, independent financial fraud investigator and Madoff whistleblower Harry Markopolos will release his exclusive story “No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller” on March 2.
The book, which will be made available to all OPUS 2010 attendees, describes how he and his team “The Fox Hounds” investigated Madoff and presented their case to the SEC on numerous occasions’ years before Madoff turned himself in on December 11, 2008 (approximately $65 billion later).
From May 2000 to December 2008, Markopolos and his team submitted five separate and detailed warnings to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) about Madoff’s operations in an effort to launch an investigation on the validity of his practices.
During the OPUS keynote address, Markopolos will detail how his four person investigative team tracked Madoff and the Madoff Feeder Funds throughout Europe and North America and repeatedly submitted detailed reports to the SEC.
If you’re an OpenPages customer and would like to hear Mr. Markopolos discuss the red flags, warning signs and the critical audit steps that companies need to be aware of to prevent similar events from occurring in the future, register for OPUS 2010 and receive a complimentary copy of his new book. It’s promising to be a “Thriller”!
