By Joseph Ax and Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) – Bernard Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme relied on reams of fake trading documents to fool regulators for decades. Now he may be the victim of a forgery himself, after a U.S. judge on Wednesday denied a bizarre motion supposedly filed by Madoff that claimed the U.S. intelligence agencies used “bio-electric sensors” to influence the case against him. Madoff’s signature did not match his typical one, and the letter contained numerous typing mistakes and a handwritten rant. Another man was listed below Madoff’s purported signature as “legal asst” Frederick Banks.
