Once a schemer, always a schemer. Prison bars are only a distraction.

Thankfully, I wasn't one of the incredibly long list of people devastated by one of the biggest money bilking schemers of our lifetime. Lives were ruined and lives were lost over Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff's actions.

Seems that those itchy fingers and mastermind can't go into quietly into the night. Evidently bilking investors out of 65-billion dollars was not the end of it. I guess if you're serving a 150 year prison term, you get a little bored.

Businessinsider.com just published a story that jailed Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff reportedly has a new way to make money behind bars.

It doesn't surprise me that even in prison, a sweet tooth has you jonesing for chocolate. Seems Madoff tapped into that in a big way while he serves his long sentence at the federal detention center in North Carolina. He reportedly bought up all the packages of Swiss Miss from the commissary and sold it for a profit in the prison yard.

I guess if you stole more money from people than anyone else in history, that would be pretty impressive to other thieves and criminals you're locked away with. And since one way to a man's heart is through his stomach, it appears Bernie is, um, saving his ass.
