► As details were revealed of Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme in December 2008, CNBC covered the breaking news, the court proceedings and spoke with the victims of his lies.
► Believe it or not, Bernie Madoff's phony monthly trading reports listed trades on days the market was closed, or at prices that were far off the market, or in volumes that simply never existed.
► Yet Madoff's scam continued for 36 years, from 1972 until 2008, as the SEC was incapable of discovering the truth, and Madoff's clients never read their phony monthly statements, since through bull and bear markets Madoff always turned in profits that were not real.
► Ten years after the epic Madoff scam blew up, thousands of people are still picking up the pieces.
► Some victims have fared better than others, sparking a still-raging debate about investor protections.
► Victims say the Madoff scandal offers some important lessons for all investors.
