OK, so we're talking about an astonishing amount of alleged fraud, in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
But law-enforcement officials apparently kept their heads in the sand INTENTIONALLY, until this one key thing took place ...
Law-enforcement authorities sat on a major bank’s money-laundering allegations, even denying they were handed the same information by a whistleblower, until the story was exposed by WND.
In a video interview, whistleblower John Cruz, a former vice president and relationship manager for HSBC in New York, detailed how he turned over his information on the bank to authorities. He named Frank J. DiGregorio, a detective sergeant in the office of the Queens County District Attorney, and Graham R. Klein, special agent at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Cruz has delivered to WND about 1,000 pages of customer-account records documenting hundreds of millions of dollars in suspicious transactions he pulled from the HSBC computer system. He says he was fired by HSBC after senior management showed no interest in investigating his claims.
“Back in 2010, my attorney turned over information regarding HSBC to DiGregorio,” Cruz affirmed. “Then, on Feb 7, 2012, Homeland Security said my attorneys never spoke to them, that they didn’t know who I am.”
