WASHINGTON: The US Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing allegations of fraud by finance giants Lehman Brothers, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and insurer AIG, US media reported on Tuesday.
Media said the mortgage; investment and insurance titans were part of a fraud inquiry by the FBI, which has widened its net to include probes of 26 Wall Street firms as lawmakers rush to agree a 700-billion-dollar government bailout of the troubled US financial sector.
