Headlining the financial disgrace section of the paper is most likely Bernard Madoff, but he is not the only scumbag who has been caught running a Ponzi scheme in the past year. Texas billionaire R. Allen Stanford was caught by the SEC back in February, and although he hasn't been formally charged with any crimes, he is being forced to pay back at least $226.6 million in back taxes, penalties and interest. So now a large amount of his office "stuff" is for sale at AMC Liquidators in South Florida. We noticed the peshawar rug in the photo, which we believe is hand knotted. If so, that puts it in the price range of $3,000 - $10,000, depending on quality and source of purchase. If you want to share the same style rug as a
criminal billionaire, you can pick up lower investment carpets on eBay.
