    Robin Hood

    "A 31-year-old man has been arrested in London in connection with allegations of 1.3 billion of rogue trading at Swiss banking giant UBS.

    The man, named in reports as Kweku Adoboli, was arrested at 3.30am on Thursday on suspicion of fraud by abuse of position and remains in police custody, sources said.

    The bank, which has 6,000 staff in the UK, revealed earlier that a trader had lost two billion US dollars (1.3 billion) on unauthorised trades and warned that the activity could have tipped the bank to a third-quarter loss.

    Oswald Gruebel, UBS chief executive, called the loss "distressing" and said he "will spare no effort to establish how it happened". According to his LinkedIn profile, Adoboli works as a director in European equity trading and was previously a trade support analyst at UBS.

    He was a student at the University of Nottingham, according to his profile on the business networking website."

    Robin Hood - Nottingham - Gedditt! I'll get my coat.

    Could be Nigerian? And some Nigerians have been known to rob people blind so with his training at Nottingham Uni [land of the legendary Robin (robbing) Hood], and his theft at UBS this could be a good fit. No sign of the Merry Men yet though.

    There is a great irony here i feel,
    This guy has made a trade, speculating in the swisse and lost.
    He has been arrested, may be convicted, will then go to jail.

    The only banker to be jailed for making a bad deal with other peoples money !!!!!!?
