Bernard Madoff suffered a heart attack in prison last month and was hospitalized, CNBC revealed Wednesday after receiving an email from the 75-year-old Ponzi scheme rip-off artist. Madoff also is suffering from stage four kidney disease.

He former stockbroker wrote that he spent most of last month in the Duke University Medical Center and that he now is back in his Butner, N.C. prison, where he was sentenced to 150 years.

Madoff victim Norma Hill, 73, who had $2 million stolen from her, told the New York Daily News on Wednesday. “I don’t wish any ill on people. . . . I don’t like to hear of anybody being sick. But I don’t have any real sympathy for him.”
