Asked if she had processed the change to reduce the younger Madoff's assets in 2008 as he was going through a divorce, Bongiorno responded, "I didn't do anything of the kind."

I had 'no clue' about the fraud

The next New Balance 868 day, after Madoff was arrested and investigators suspended the investment business, Bongiorno said she went to her boss's partner and brother, Peter Madoff, after she realized the account checks had never been signed.

"If I was told to do it, I did it," Bongiorno testified about the account entries. "It didn't raise a red flag."

NEW YORK Longtime Bernard Madoff assistant Annette Bongiorno said Thursday she had "no clue" that the financier's business was about to collapse and be revealed as a massive Ponzi scheme slightly more than five years ago.

Zach showed Bongiorno a document in which she had written notes about reducing the value of a deferred compensation account held by Madoff's son, Andrew, from $33 million to roughly $200,000. Other records confirmed the change.

Told when she arrived that Madoff had ordered the closing of all investment accounts for employees and their families, Bongiorno referred to the $50 million her own accounts purportedly held as she recounted her shocked response: "I'm going to have to pay all these taxes (on the sale gains) in one year?"

"If I didn't tell them, I forgot. I was scared," she said.

"He said he couldn't sign the checks," said Bongiorno. "He looked at me like I was crazy."

She testified she was similarly befuddled when co worker Frank DiPascali, now the trial's star prosecution witness against her, left the office a day later saying, "Don't worry. I'll protect you."

Did she tell investigators she'd been involved in creating a new account for a fund invested with Madoff?
