The Novartis whistleblower story - is it for real?
. . . John Mack is wondering.
And no John, you're not back on my sh-t list because of your questions in your post It Must be a Slow Summer for Whistleblowers if the Best You Can Do is Cite CafePharma Discussions!
In fact, what you did is exactly what I hoped for . . . you know, it is summer, and I was a bit tired of doing all the work, so I figured if I just poked around a bit with that hornet's nest, someone would pick up a few more sticks, and eventually we'd have a full whistleblower story going . . . and you did just that.
So next is to find out, what is the deal with "David Olagunju v. Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation"?
It is, as John pointed out, easy enough to find his info on the Internet: David Olagunju Global Director, Statistical Reporting and Standards Novartis Pharmaceuticals Telephone: 862.778.3802.
And yes, the phone number still works, but goes into voicemail . . . but the guy's name on the recording is not Olagunju, it is Gupta . . . and it is not his phone numer, the phone has been forwarded. Then the operator told me Olagunju had been moved to MA . . . and the number I was given simply had an automated message in a continues loop, which did not respond to any number pushing. The mystery thickens.
And, there is nothing on "David Olagunju" in the all-encompassing PACER system, so is this all a hoax? If you know, contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
