Porsche managers charged with credit fraud - The Local
The investigation is yet another complication in the merger between Porsche and auto powerhouse Volkswagen.

The three employees, who remain unnamed, are accused of lying to a bank about the number of options Porsche held on VW ordinary stocks in 2009, when Porsche was in talks about the refinancing of a €10 billion loan.

When the bank questioned Porsche about its financial needs during negotiations, the three suspects undervalued the options by around €1.4 billion.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
