Email Prankster Spoofs Morgan Stanley CEO Gorman
[Photo: by Bloomberg]
by Howard Haykin
Posing as Morgan Stanley director and former chancellor of the British exchequer Alistair Darling, the email prankster apologized to Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman for mistakenly sending a photo of himself to Gorman instead of to a journalist who was supposedly writing a feature on him. Gorman replied, “It’s a good picture anyway.”
HOOK, LINE and SINKER.
The prankster then sent the text of the supposed article - a rambling, ornately written story about fresh-caught salmon being stolen by stray dogs during a family fishing trip, and the implications of the tale for risk management.
To which Gorman responded: “Excellent. Great personal story to make a critical point!”
The prankster, who goes by the Twitter handle @SINON_REBORN, wrapped it up by calling out rival banks’ “flakey cyber security” and inviting Gorman to an Arabian Nights-themed party next month that promised camels and cocktails.
