Agreed. If Hartzman is not careful he could get sued. Its an uphill battle fighting these big financial institutions.

hartzman

Still employed as of this afternoon. Had to cancel this months cpa ethics clases.

polifrog

Thanks for the synopsis, Ed.

hartzman

The straw was the late november article by bloomberg reporting he money made from secret loans that were undisclosed to thoee managing fiduciary accounts.

Billy Jones

We can only hope for the best. As one who once blew the whistle on one far smaller that Wells Fargo and for much lesser crimes it's not something I would want to wish on anybody. I never recovered, I hope things go better for George.

Hugh

George, Isn't it a violation of Wells' privacy policy to publicly post an internal company email?

Hartzman

"Isn't it a violation of Wells' privacy policy
to publicly post an internal company email?"

Good point Hugh.

The problem is the reglatory infrastruture
seems to have been compromised.

I was left without a resonable choice.

If I had done nothing,
teaching CPA and Attorney ethics courses while doing nothing,
would make me into an amazing fraud to myself.

As of Friday close, I still have a job.

Monday might be different.

They asked me to cancel this month's ethics classes,
so I did.

The internal email exposure
contrasts with whistleblower law.

Seems like a wash,
unless I get canned on Monday.

Great question.

SAL LEONE

Good luck George, I know it took a lot to stand up because I been there.

Just watch your back at work and document everything. I am sure they will begin to harass you.

hartzman

Thanks.

hartzman

I very love my wife. She is a bit more than a little upset at the moment. I f i were her i would be too. Hurting her is more painfull than fighting the rest of humanity.

I have asked to be seated as a board member of wells fargo.

hartzman

My parents just saw thier first youtube videos of me.

Hartzman

"Isn't it a violation of Wells' privacy policy

I believe the fiduciary standard overides the privacy policy
if I am doing what is in the best interests of my clients,
which I believe I am doing.

The ethics code and the law
point to my obligation to point it out,
and if the regulatory infrastructure has been compromised,
which I believe it has been,
then I feel justified to take it public.

KPMG is the auditor.

How did the bank analysts not know?

How could the auditors not have known?

If some knew and profited while most remained unaware,
how is that not insider trading
on the stock option grants and the TARP payoff?

If they knew what they were getting,
how could they not have correctly assumed others were doing the same?

If some knew that most big banks were getting
what appears to have been and unlimited line of credit
while most didn't,
how can that not be a violation of multiple laws, ethics codes
industry best practice no no's etc...?

Hartzman

Why would some not want to include investment costs in financial planning software used to council financial clients?

Hartzman

"Abner Doon (George Hartzman) are you still employed by Wells Fargo?

If you are, my guess is that you won't be very much longer.

It's your "mouth," you know.

You are so, so disgusting."
