When Financial Times journalist Dan McCrum followed a tip to investigate Wirecard, a hot new European tech startup challenging Silicon Valley, everything about the business – which claimed to be an innovative digital payments processor – struck him as too good to be true. As McCrum dug deeper, he encountered a tale stranger and more dangerous than he ever imagined. His new book, Money Men: A Hot Startup, A Billion Dollar Fraud, A Fight for the Truth, tells the story. He joins Carl Miller, Research Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at Demos, to talk about it.
