Following its successful sale of Marc Dreier’s One Beacon Court condo, auction group David R. Maltz & Co. is handling the sale of Scottsdale accountant-turned-swindler Dan Wise’s Midtown home in the Museum Tower at 15 West 53rd Street. Arrested in April this year, Wise is accused of orchestrating a $67 million Ponzi scheme. Wise purchased unit 18F in the building — which overlooks the MoMA sculpture garden — for $1.45 million in 2006, using money that he allegedly received from his many duped investors. The auction is scheduled for Oct. 22.
