He's admitted to swindling investors out of $50 bil, so it's no surprise Bernie Madoff would want to be a total sneak when it comes to entrances and exits.

But the prince of Ponzi is finding that harder to do than he'd like. The New York Post reports Madoff has been trying to get into his Manhattan building through a boutique next door, because he's too embarrassed to go through the front lobby, where paparazzi and reporters have been hounding him. The store, however, isn't having it.
