I like to think some kids with Raspberry Pi's and a couple of degrees of moral compass will get jobs in places like this and actually know how to do JOINs on the odd table or two and start chucking up anomalies. If someone at the SEC notice that Citibank had noticed and fixed the problem without letting them know the $7M would look like very very very very small change.
