According to a February 2010 media article (see http://www.housingwatch.com/2010/02/10/power-fraud-the-adam-hochfelder-story/), “As a rising young star in New York real estate, Adam Hochfelder emulated New York legends like Harry Helmsley, buying the billionaire’s namesake Helmsley Building at 230 Park Ave., and setting up shop in the former office of Helmsley’s widow, Leona. Turns out the 38-year old upstart was emulating another legend, too: Bernie Madoff. Hochfelder was charged this week with bilking millions of dollars out of friends and family — even his best man — in phony real estate deals… This is actually the second time in less than two years that Hochfelder has been in hot water with the criminal justice system. In 2008, he was indicted on charges of stealing $17 million from friends, family and banks.” A March 2010 New York Times article said that, “In his court papers, Mr. Hochfelder said he had paid back most of the $17 million from the original indictment. But he still owes money, including to relatives. Paul Hyams, a lawyer who is trying to collect more than $21 million for Mr. Hochfelder’s uncle Peter Hochfelder and other investors, said that Adam had ‘definitely not offered to pay anything’ to his clients.” In May 2010, Adam Hochfelder pled guilty to stealing $18 million (see http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/22/nyregion/22hochfelder.html).
