Default Whistleblower Goes To Prison, illegal Swiss tax cheats walk free

Awesome $20 billion in illegal accounts

Birkenfeld, a whistleblower, is the 'only one' going to prison

Why Is the Whistleblower Who Exposed the Massive UBS Tax Evasion Scheme the Only One Heading to Prison?
A former banker for the Swiss giant UBS who blew the whistle on the biggest tax-evasion scheme in US history is preparing to head to prison tomorrow to begin serving a forty-month federal sentence. Bradley Birkenfeld first came forward to US authorities in 2007 and began providing inside information on how UBS was helping thousands of Americans hide assets in secret Swiss accounts. We speak with his attorney, Stephen Kohn, the executive director of the National Whistleblowers Center.

14,000 wealthy clients pay fines, names withheld, UBS agreed (with clients) to have no papers trails (meeting in person), tax forms checked for no foreign assets.

Clients are in positions of power in USA.

The form there didn't work for Canadians, so I used the Apple Computer address and added a PS with my real address at the bottom of the (edited) form letter.

Apple Computer, Inc.
1 Infinite Loop
Cupertino, CA 95014

Just a tip.

Newsletter Update - Bradley Birkenfeld Fact Sheet

Mr. Birkenfeld did what whistleblowers do first; as documented in *e-mails and correspondence* sent within the bank starting in June of 2005 he went to his supervisors at work as soon as he discovered UBS was violating the law. He did this in good faith - not to gain a reward or to turn UBS in to the authorities - but to fix the problems he discovered. He followed all UBS internal compliance procedures and reported his concerns up the chain of command. On May 24, 2006, UBS general counsel closed the investigation, and UBS did nothing to address Mr. Birkenfeld’s complaint. http://www.whistleblowers.org/storag..._and_memos.pdf
