It seems conman Bernie Madoff is at peace now that he’s among among fellow thieves.

New York magazine has written a fascinating piece on how Madoff seems relieved to have gotten caught and is admired by some of  his fellow inmates at the Butner Correctional Facility in North Carolina.

Lifer at the prison,  Robert Rosso, founder of convictinc.com, wrote, according to the magazine that Madoff, 71, is a “A hero. “He’s arguably the greatest con of all time.”

The magazine noted that Madoff has been known to walk with Carmine Persico, the former mob boss, or Jonathan Pollard, the spy.

The magazine said one inmate said he heard Madoff say one day: “F— my victims. I carried them for twenty years, and now I’m doing 150 years.”

Madoff’s former cellmate, the magazinze reported, recalled a conversation between Pollard and Madoff: “Bernie was telling a story about an old lady. She was bugging him for her money, so he said to her, ‘Here’s your money,’ and gave her a check. When she saw the amount she says, ‘That’s unbelievable,’ and she says, ‘Take it back.’ And urged her friends [to invest].”

Pollard thought it was “kind of f—- up” taking advantage of older women, according to the magazine.

“Well, that’s what I did,” Madoff said.

“You are going to pay with God,” Pollard warned. Madoff was unmoved. He was past apologizing, the magazine wrote.
