Email Prankster Spoofs Morgan Stanley CEO Gorman

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.
