Billboards urge Wall Street employees to report financial crimes

The NYPD asks if you see something, say something. And now a band of Wall Street gadflies are similarly seeking help in sniffing out weapons of financial destruction.

The financial industry requests hit New York like a thunderbolt last week, announced by in-your-face billboards across downtown Manhattan advertising an encrypted new way bank employees can electronically and anonymously disclose sensitive statements and documents on suspected workplace fraud.

The aim is to help level the playing field on Wall Street between get-rich-quick shady operators and the often-innocent workers, according to a grassroots coalition of workers. Behind this campaign urging bank employees to blow the whistle in an intensified clampdown on suspected corruption are advocates and lawyers.
