This week on Money In Money Out, Susan Gunn is joined by Janice Janssen for another episode of In The Embezzlement News! This embezzlement scandal takes place in Dixon, Illinois, where the City Comptroller steals millions, forcing the city to the brink of budget failure. To date this case is known as the largest municipal fraud in US history.
“If a fraud of this magnitude can happen in Dixon, it can happen anywhere.”
“There were years the city had to take out loans to cover the amount she stole.”
“We both said good Lord Almighty, she STARTED with a 181k dollar theft! Dental embezzlers are brazen but have never started out with a theft so high!”
“You would be surprised how often we find records where the embezzlers are keeping track of how much they have stolen.”
“They said it would take her 120+ years to pay the restitution.”
“She had 400 horses on 22 farms in 13 states.”
“She liked her jewelry gaudy.”
“There is a lot of misplaced trust that the bank is watching, but they are not watching as much as you think they might be.”
“Managing your own business is really the most effective tool for oversight.”
“It is so important to have an outside entity review your information.”
“Trust without verification can lead to betrayal.”
