“This is a one of a kind property and is obviously very secluded,” the listing says. It doesn’t say who owns the property.

The forested land, which had been listed at $154,500, does not have electricity or running water. Photos posted with the online listing show tall trees, chain-link fences topped by barbed wire and a tree with “FBI” carved into it, though it’s not clear why.

Mr. Pistelak said Friday he couldn’t immediately comment on the listing, and he didn’t return phone messages on Sunday. The property does not include Kaczynski’s cabin, which is on display at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

Kaczynski is serving a life sentence for killing three people and injuring 23 during a nationwide bombing spree between 1978 and 1995.

NEW YORK

British bank sued over Madoff case

NEW YORK | HSBC prolonged disgraced financier Bernard Madoff’s ability to burn investors by “engineering a labyrinth” of international sources of funding for his epic Ponzi scheme, a court-appointed trustee charged Sunday.

Trustee Irving Picard announced a lawsuit in federal bankruptcy court in Manhattan that seeks to recover $9 billion in illicit earnings and damages from the Britain-based bank.

The suit says HSBC ignored warnings from its own accountants that Madoff’s phenomenal investment record was suspect.

“Had HSBC and (its executives) reacted appropriately to such warnings and other obvious badges of fraud outlined in the complaint, the Madoff Ponzi scheme would have collapsed years, billions of dollars, and countless victims sooner,” Mr. Picard said in a statement. “The defendants were willfully and deliberately blind to the fraud, even after learning about numerous red flags surrounding Madoff.”

There was no immediate response to phone and e-mail messages left with HSBC.

Madoff, 72, is serving a 150-year sentence in a federal prison in North Carolina after admitting that he ran his scheme for at least two decades, using his secretive investment advisory service to cheat thousands of individuals, charities, celebrities and institutional investors.
