A Peek Inside the Weird World of RRA

For your reading enjoyment, I was anonymously forwarded this strange email purportedly sent by Scott Rothstein to his staff at Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler on May 1, five months before his Ponzi scheme blew up. What's funny is that it comes with a maniacal laugh, more than one reference to insanity, and he actually asked the staff to wish his new personal assistant, Marybeth, luck "as she tries to keep me from imploding."

You think Marybeth might have some stories to tell?

There's more of this coming soon. Here's the first email:

Subject: Changes at RRA :-)

Good morning kidzzzzzz,

In our never ending changing wacky world I have two changes to advise you of.

Effective 1 week from today, Marybeth will be changing roles from Director of Business Relations to the CEO to Personal Assistant to the CEO. She is going to make a valiant (defined insane) attempt to

organize and control my personal life so that I can attempt to have a semi-organized and semi-controlled business life....heheheheheehe.......please join me in wishing her the best of luck as she tries to keep me from imploding.....she will be working both in and out of the office. In all seriousness, I am blessed to have her in my life.

Effective 2 weeks from today, Amy Howard will be promoted to Director of Business Relations to the CEO.....and she will be the one who tries to keep my business world at least semi-organized.

She will assume all of Marybeth's duties associated with that position. If you need something relative to me, you will now terrorize amy instead of marybeth. Marybeth shall from this point forward ONLY be terrorized by me :-)

Please join me in congratulating both of these insane women for accepting these most psychotic positions.

Love you all,

Scott :-)
