HOW TO BECOME A BILLIONAIRE BEHIND BARS
A former UBS banker pleaded guilty for helping rich Americans evade taxes and he even admitted to smuggling diamonds in a tube of toothpaste. Facing 40 months in prison, he now he wants the US to pay him billions of dollars for his help in catching thousands of other evaders. "Now, as thousands of wealthy Americans seek amnesty for keeping illicit, offshore bank accounts, Mr. Birkenfeld and his lawyers hope to use a new federal whistle-blower law to claim a multibillion-dollar reward from the American government. If they succeed — and legal experts say the odds are pretty good — it would be the largest reward of its kind."
