We get anonymous tips all the time. But usually when someone tips us off and asks us to include his info, he typically doesn't still work for the company that he's narking on.
Reader Warren sent us a link to his eBay page yesterday, revealing that he nabbed an old issue of Vogue with Lauren Weisberger on the masthead while an intern at the glossy. He also said in his email to us:
"If you do decide to post it as a story, my info is below in my signature."
We assumed that meant he was no longer associated with Vogue. But we were wrong.
Apparently the college student was interning at GQ this semester, and he just got canned when his superiors found out about the stunt. In normal circumstances, we would feel bad for printing his name, but it seems like he might have wanted this to happen? Very strange. Related: Start Your Bidding Now: Rare Vogue Hits eBay
