Madoff claims he helped gov’t snag JPMorgan

In a new email from federal prison, convicted con artist Bernard Madoff claims federal regulators “eagerly accepted” information he offered about JPMorgan Chase, which is in talks with U.S. authorities about a potential $2 billion settlement over its alleged role in the Madoff fraud.

“I am not looking for any type of credit for my assistance, just their honesty,” he wrote in an email to me dated Friday. “Nothing I could do at this point would help my image.”

Madoff claims he shared his information with the Treasury Department Inspector General’s office. Sources confirm an intermediary for him contacted the IG’s office, but they could not say what information was provided or whether it has been useful.
