Introducing The Other Wire Card
The German Ruediger Trautmann was Wirecard’s COO between 2005 to 2010. According to the Zatarra Report, Trautmann incorporated numerous undisclosed companies in the Wirecard scheme during his tenure. One of these satellite companies was Wire Card UK Limited, where he served as a director from 2006 until its dissolution in 2010. This Wire Card UK did not belong to the German Wirecard Group but was part of the scheme. The similarity of the names was probably no coincidence.
