This month’s lecture for Chapter Members

This month’s lecture is INTERNAL FINANCIAL SERVICES FRAUD for two CPE credits.

During the years of the Great Depression, when the bank robber Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks, he replied, “Because that’s where the money is”.  Banks have been the targets of external thieves and fraudsters for as long as there have been such institutions; after all, they are, indeed, where the money is.  The recent, and on-going, scandals at Wells Fargo and the numerous insider trading disasters within financial services firms world-wide are focusing media attention increasingly on the phenomena of internal bank fraud, frauds perpetrated by the employees of financial services firms against the banking public in general and against their employing firms specifically. There are seemingly countless ways for financial institution employees to exploit their positions and weaknesses in anti-fraud controls to perpetuate loan and other financially related frauds. The first step in the prevention of these crimes is to understand them!  Enjoy!
