The Real Deal Miami

Rothstein beneficiaries named

December 01, 2009 10:14AM

Accused Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein sent money to a host of people when he was on the run in Morocco, but much of the legal complaint is full of misspellings and inaccuracies. One beneficiary was Shimon Levy, an alleged Israeli mobster who served a one-year prison term for hiding an accused murderer. Levy was formerly a partner in the Sea Club Resort, but in 1997, Zvika Yuz, the other principal in the Fort Lauderdale real estate venture, was gunned down in a murder that remains unsolved.
