WCNC television news released a story last week about BB&T bank whistleblower Amy Stroupe. While working as an investigator for the bank, she uncovered a $20 million ponzi scheme. A bank official and some developers used a phony land development to recruit customers. They actually paid some monthly mortgage payments for the customers to keep a lid on the scam while they recruited new customers. Stroupe is represented by James, Hoyer, Newcomer, Smiljanich & Yanchunis of Tampa, Florida. She is now waiting for a decision from the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Administrative Law Judges, under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
The case number for Amy Stroupe’s case is 2008SOX00047. The first public announcement of the decision of the Administrative Law Judge will come from the Office of Administrative Law Judges (OALJ). OALJ issues new decisions every work day. To monitor OALJ’s web page for new decisions, follow this link. Then search either for "Stroupe" as a complainant, "2008-SOX-00047" as a case number, or check for particular recent dates of decision to see all the new ALJ decisions.
