Maloney and Porcelli Are Expense Reporting, Madoff-Style

Few restaurants are as tied to the economic downturn as Maloney and Porcelli. For the last 20 years they have been the favorite restaurant for bankers from the late Bear Stearns, JP Morgan, and UBS. So, in order to help their favored customers, they present the Maloney and Porcelli expense report.

To help those with expensive tastes in recession times, they have launched an interesting marketing tool for their customers. And really, any other banker in need of a lunch expense excuse. The generator at http://expenseasteak.com/ creates a Maloney and Porcelli expense report that adds things like cab fare, cheap meal receipts, and office supplies. That way, it won’t be necessary to explain a $400 lunch—it’ll look like a much more reasonable $400 week of cheap eats. It’s worth checking out, since this deceiving ruse won’t be up for long.
