NEW YORK -- After JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s embarrassing "London Whale" losses came to light, Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon reportedly got a phone call to cheer him up.
The voice on the line claimed to be Tom Brady, star quarterback of the New England Patriots and San Mateo native.
Dimon initially thought it could be the chairman and CEO of rival Goldman Sachs, another Wall Street powerhouse, according to Dimon's remarks quoted by Bloomberg News.
“At first I thought it was a friend of mine pulling a prank. I thought it was Lloyd Blankfein,” Dimon said during a panel discussion in Germany Monday, according to the financial news service.
