More press on Levin. First, this article from the Miami Herald: Lawsuit: Scott Rothstein had plenty of help in scam. The article quotes from an alleged Levin email from the lawsuit:

Quote:
"If we don't make Doug's payment tomorrow, I am afraid the game will be over!... He is nuts and very suspicious of us!'' Levin wrote, according to the suit.
Also, Bob Norman, the reporter who initially blew the whistle on Rothstein, has an interesting blog posting up today that quotes some alleged Rothstein and Levin emails that came out in a lawsuit against alleged conspirators in the Ponzi.

Quote:
In his massive new 1,329 amended complaint, Scherer clarifies his view on Levin, the wealthy Fort Lauderdale businessman who was responsible for pumping $657 million into the Ponzi through his Banyon hedge funds.

He mentions in his suit that another Levin company, Classic Motor Carriages, was convicted of a fraud charge and calls the Ponzi scheme "Classic Motors 2.0."

"Similar to his operation of Classic Motor Carriages, Levin relied on others in Banyon to do his 'dirty work' in an attempt to insulate him from both criminal and civil liability," Scherer alleges.
