An unidentified informant is offering to sell the German authorities details of 1,500 individuals who allegedly have untaxed income stashed away in Swiss bank accounts. He gave German tax auditors five sample files to prove the validity of the information which shows that the government is willing to cut the deal. It would not be the first one of its kind. In 2008, Germany purchased data on tax evaders from a bank official based in Liechtenstein. This time the government is willing to pay 2,5 million Euro for the stolen data, hoping for revenues of 200 million from the disclosed evaders. What's next? Probably negotiations with drug dealers, kidnappers and terrorists.
