Wirecard hires firm for forensic probe – sources

The German payments company has reportedly hired Alix Partners to probe the accounting scandal that led to its collapse. The blue-chip company filed for insolvency last month, owing creditors almost $4 billion. That was after disclosing a 1.9 billion euro or 2.17 billion dollar hole in its accounts.
Auditor EY said it was the result of a sophisticated global fraud.
Sources say Alix Partners will conduct a forensic probe to find out which Wirecard employees knew what about potentially criminal incidents.
