When are we going to lock up the banksters?
Thanks to one of the largest leaks in the history of the banking industry, we now know that big bank HSBC helped hundreds of thousands of wealthy customers from across the globe avoid paying their taxes.
Back in 2007, Herve Falciani, who at the time was a HSBC computer specialist working in that bank’s Geneva office, leaked troves and troves of data on HSBC’s wealthiest customers and the bank’s tax evasion practices.
Now, we are getting are first glimpses into what that data reveals.
The BBC is reporting that it has seen records of at least 106,000 HSBC clients in 203 countries, all of whom were actively dodging taxes in their respective countries by hiding their money in HSBC’s Swiss bank.
