NEW YORK (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co will pay a $350 million penalty to the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday, in addition to a $1.7 billion forfeiture to settle charges it failed to flag suspicious activity by convicted Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff.
Bank regulators were set to appear at a 1:15 p.m. EST (1815 GMT) press conference that is being held by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in New York, according to an announcement Tuesday.
