Among the six items for sale is a gold piece in the shape of a paperclip.

The U.S. Marshals service is offering up to the highest bidder six pieces of jewelry that once belonged to infamous Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff, ABC News reports. A diamond bracelet, a necklace, a pendant, two gold watches and another gold piece in the shape of a paperclip are the items that are now up for auction here on txauction.com, according to the article. The website says the auction will end on Feb. 16.

And in case you’re wondering where Madoff – whose $64 billion scheme is the largest financial crime in American history – is these days, he’s serving a 150-year sentence in a North Carolina federal prison, ABC said in a separate report. It cites his lawyer, who said that Madoff is “doing as well as can be expected” in spite of a heart issue and the fact that his wife stopped coming to see him years ago.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
