Description: In this webinar, John Gill, J.D., CFE, the ACFE’s Vice President of Education, will interview James Scalzo. Scalzo served 27 months in federal prison for bank fraud and money laundering. While a bank officer, he approved 1.4 million worth of fraudulent loans and had the funds wired to his personal accounts. The loans were made in the names of bank customers (including his own relatives) who were unaware he had taken out loans using their information.
Join us as we explore Scalzo's mindset when he took his first wrong step, how he concealed the fraud, how he was caught and the lessons he learned.
