As mentioned ten seconds ago, ten Russian spies were busted yesterday by the Justice Department. One of them (code name: Cynthia), apparently had a bunch of face time with an unnamed “New York-based financier active in politics.” Another is Anna Chapman, left, who supposedly worked at a London-based hedge fund called Navigator. After that, according to Chaps’ LinkedIn profile, she was a VP at KIT Fortis Investments, and previously, a “slave” at Barclays. She also has some phenomenal testimonials.
“”Keep on moving”, must be one of Anna’s favorites mottos. When i met her in Moscow she was eager to learn, full of self control and ready to develop her client’s network. One thing we learned together is that Kremlin museum is closed on thurdsdays.” December 10, 2009
