SONJA KOHN: BRASH BANKER DISAPPEARS


Not known for her friendly manner, Sonja Kohn, a Madoff associate, has even less friends...




"With an aggressive style that stood out in the staid world of Austrian banking even more than her bouffant red wig, Sonja Kohn made few friends gathering billions for Bernard Madoff from wealthy investors in Russia and across Europe.

Now, she has even fewer. Kohn has dropped out of sight, leaving the firm she founded, Bank Medici, in the hands of the Austrian regulators, who took it over last week."


Kohn's clients lost $2.1 billion dollars in the Madoff investment scam.

Update (1/14): Kohn makes statement; attempts to distance herself from Madoff.
