"Total financing sources realized by the Fund in FY 2014 were $3,777.3 million, an increase of $1,766.0 million compared to $2,011.3 million realized in FY 2013. This is the ninth year since inception of the Fund that it has exceeded $1 billion in deposits. In FY 2014 there were eight large fraud cases which yielded $3,502.9 million in forfeitures. Specifically, the Toyota and Bernard Madoff cases resulted in $2,900 million. If we remove the effect of the two largest cases above, the deposits still exceeded $877.3 million in FY 2014."
