Informant offers Swiss account data to Germany

A whistleblower is dangling the details of 1500 individuals with Swiss bank
accounts who may be evading tax in front of the German authorities.

The informant is asking for 2.5m euros for the confidential data, which tax
investigators believe could rake in 100m euros for German state coffers, the
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

In 2008 Germany bought data on tax evaders from an informant about clients of
a Liechtenstein bank.
