    Do you think Picard or Lifland have read any of the descriptions of SIPC. If so how can they claim it is not an insurance vehicle. The definitions clearly refer to what the customer believed they had in their account. Surely a cash in cash out basis is never mentioned. How can the interpretation of what congress set up be twisted so?

    I invested in a Madoff feeder fund in 2007 took only one disbursement in 2008. Why am I not eligible for SIPC?
    I was diagnosed with cancer in March 2009. The bills are pouring in, I am 62 years old. Why is there no help for
    me? Picard has told me that as an indirect investor that I am not covered by SIPC. This is not justice, whether direct or
    indirect my money went to that SOB MADOFF. Who can help me?

    PS I did not know until 12/12/08 that MOT Family Trust which was recommended by my insurance agent was a Madoff fund.
