Abstract: It is shown that the $ {C^ * }$-algebra $ M(A)/A$, where $ A$ is a nonunital separable simple AF $ {C^ * }$-algebra and $ M(A)$ is the multiplier algebra of $ A$, is simple if and only if $ A$ has a continuous scale or $ A$ is elementary. Some results concerning the ideal structure of $ M(A)/A$ are also obtained in the case that it is nontrivial.
