Their hall of mirrors was constructed by generating revenue through mis-labeling transaction categories to process otherwise illegal payments; faking income then using the “profit” to acquire failing companies for multiples above market value (and bribing former owners into complicity); and cowering dissenters through aggressive PR counter-messaging, legal action, and phishing attacks from cyber security contractors.

Money Men charts the rise and fall of Wirecard – a German payment processing company that had raised billions of euros and was lauded as Germany’s fintech wonder to rival Silicon Valley’s big tech companies.
