In the October 2008 memo, Hopeman wrote that Marti told him “that Mr. Petters was abusing prescription drugs,” and “losing tens of millions of dollars at gambling.”

In the January 2009 memo, Hopeman said Petters insisted the Ponzi scheme that got him in trouble was basically operated by confidante Deanna Coleman and businessman Robert White. Coleman, Petters alleged, “tasted champagne and no longer likes beer” referring to her financial success from the scheme before she became the government’s central witness.
