What does the sweet little old lady that has been working for the same company for 30 years, and stealing for 30 years, do when new controls are put in place?  She adapts.  Hear the tale of Bad Grandma as a CFE investigator discusses a case study in which a long-term employee of a company that owned dozens of fast food restaurants developed several layers of fraud. Many of the schemes that she created were in response to controls being put in place. This webinar covers the scenario she exploited, how the initial fraud was detected, the investigators’ approach, and all the other levels of fraud eventually uncovered.
