Fraud Preventions: Bears will be Bears
CMC. MMC, APT
I investigated a fraud from a conference center that was managed by a Public Building Authority (similar to a joint venture between a county and a city). The title refers to the time I was speaking at conference in Gatlinburg and black bear tore through the top of my Jeep to get some leftover fried chicken in the back seat. (I know, how much more Southern Redneck can you get?). He was just a bear being a bear, it was my fault because I left the chicken and gave him the opportunity. Similarly, the conference center management did not implement adequate internal controls and the director stole a bunch of money....she was just a fraudster being a fraudster.
The Full Institute runs each Thursday from April 1-22.
