Doritos bag was key to insider trading scheme

What do tortilla chips and ill-gotten stock profits have in common?

By Jeremy Selwyn

03.06.2007

While reading about a financial scandal in which stock research from UBS was leaked to some employees of Bear Stearns and Morgan Stanley, I came upon this gem:

"Participants allegedly used secret codes and disposable mobile phones to cover their tracks. Cash was transferred in a Doritos bag." (See the full story at The Sunday Times.)

Unfortunately, neither The Sunday Times nor The Wall Street Journal got the full story, as neither mentioned which flavor of Doritos was involved. That's a key detail that we need to know!
