A prankster scores stamps with first class swindler’s portrait.

The stamps, were just issued to David Mackie by which sells postage via an agreement with the United States Postal Service. Mackie created the 42-cent Madoff stamps using a design tool on the web site. Along with a black and white photo of the accused Ponzi schemer, Mackie added the greeting “HI DAD” to his Madoff stamps, which likely made the online firm’s screeners think that the silver-haired gentleman was the customer’s father. Mackie told TSG that he paid $17.95 for the 20 first class Madoff stamps, a premium in excess of 100 percent for the personalized stamps.
