Chasing Madoff is a documentary feature that reveals the frightening true story behind the Bernard Madoff scandal from the team that discovered it ten-years before the public.

At approximately 8:30am on December 11th, 2008 two federal agents entered the New York City penthouse of 133 East 64th Street and arrested Bernard Madoff, the admitted mastermind behind the largest act of financial fraud in world history.

Comparable to Eliot Ness and Al Capone, Chasing Madoff is the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigator's ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth behind the infamous Madoff scandal. Throughout the decade long investigation, Markopolos pieced together a chain of white-collar predators consisting of financial fraudsters, lieutenants, and henchmen, all linked to the devastating Ponzi scheme. With risk and danger apparent, Markopolos and his loyal team relentlessly continued to pursue the frightening truth. Finding himself trapped in a web of epic deceit, the once unassuming Boston securities analyst turned vigilante investigator now feared for his life and the safety of his family. Arming himself to the teeth, Harry became increasingly paranoid as the press continuously silenced his efforts of exposure and he found that no one would listen...
