FBI seizes computer from federally bailed out Ally Financial

The funding arm for GM and Chrysler was recently paid a visit by the FBI - find out why inside.

One of the largest financial institutions in the U.S., Ally Financial, was paid a visit this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

While there, the FBI special agents utilized a search warrant to find and seize a single iMac computer, according to The Detroit News, which it took while under supervision by an Ally Financial attorney.

The reasoning behind the search warrant is not currently public, sealed by the warrant itself. Neither the FBI nor Ally Financial is offering details as to why the computer was taken, but it is known that Assistant U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg, a computer crime specialist, and computer security expert Special Agent Ted Jungkuntz are handling the investigation.

Ally Financial is responsible for handling most of the loans on new vehicles for both General Motors and Chrysler, was a recipient of $17.2 billion in federal bailout money and is to this day 74 percent-owned by the U.S. Treasury.
