Gary Foster grew up in Jamaica before moving to New Jersey, where he landed his dream job at a Big Four U.S. bank on Wall Street. However, company loyalty turned to anger as he believed he was being deliberately underpaid. Leaning on trust from his coworkers and lack of controls, Foster ultimately stole $22 million from the company and avoided detection for several years.  

This webinar begins with the exclusive premier of a new documentary, “My Wall Street Heist: The Story of Gary Foster.” The short film, commissioned by the ACFE and produced by CPE Studios, chronicles his story and where he is today. After the film, Bethmara Kessler, CFE, will lead a discussion with Foster and answer attendee questions to learn more about how he committed the fraud and what can be done to prevent similar occurrences.
