The way to an investor’s heart …

Jeremy Elwood, SBJ ReporterFor the numerous investors who lost money to convicted Ponzi scheme perpetrator Bernard Madoff, finally some good news.

As reported on CNN’s web site, Nino’s 208, a swank Italian eatery just four blocks from the offices of Madoff’s investment firm, is offering a free three-course meal to anyone victimized by the scheme, which federal criminal complaints say encompassed more than $65 billion in fictitious stock holdings.

Restaurant owner Nino Selimaj – who said seven of his other restaurants are losing money due to the current economy – told CNN he’s offering the promotion because he can relate to the victims: Selimaj lost his life savings in the stock market in 2000.

“No matter how much money you have, if you have $100 million and you lose $100 million, you are completely broke,” Selimaj said.

Food for thought indeed.
