A whistleblower has revealed that a number of financial

institutions, including banks and hedge funds, are actively

targeting recruitment of problem gamblers.

An employee of an executive recruitment firm, the

whistleblower said financial institutions have engaged

recruitment firms to infiltrate Gamblers Anonymous meetings

and evaluate problem gamblers in attendance, with a view to recruiting them into their organizations.

The whistleblower, who did not want to be identified, said financial institutions valued the risk-taking and

ingenuity of compulsive gamblers, and should this recruitment approach be successful, the financial institutions are

believed to next target recruitment from among psychopaths and schizophrenics.

Australian Prime Minister, Brother Number 1 Mr Kevin Rudd, said he understood “that financial institutions

have to be novel to be competitive in an increasing complex international industry”. Federal Opposition Leader and

Grand Inquisitor, Mr Tony Abbott, responded to questions by saying “talk to the hand.” Greens leader, Senator Bob

Brown, said “if it’s true it will give problem gamblers a very bad name.”
