INDIANAPOLIS -- Part two of the ABC mini-series "Madoff" aired Thursday night. The series took a look at the rise and fall of Bernie Madoff, who ran one of the biggest Ponzi schemes of all time. 

An IU professor says the series could bring back vivid memories for those who lost billions in the scheme. 

Noah Stoffman helped write a paper that spawned from the Bernie Madoff fraud case. Stoffman says while Madoff defrauded thousands of people out of their investment money, many more indirectly paid the price.
