Officials say JPMorgan Chase will pay $1.7 billion to settle criminal charges and a $350 million civil penalty for missing obvious warning signs of Bernard Madoff's massive Ponzi scheme. The criminal settlement and the separate Treasury Department penalty were announced Tuesday. Federal prosecutors in New York say the $1.7 billion represents the largest forfeiture ever by a U.S. bank. The Treasury Department's Office of the Comptroller of the Currency says its penalty was imposed because JPMorgan had "critical and widespread deficiencies" in its programs to prevent money laundering and other suspicious activity.
