Frank Vukovits and I do a session together highlighting internal threats. Internally we refer to it as Mark & Frank telling fraud stories. We might start just calling it that externally as well. We have another one for you today, a tale of a second chance gone very wrong.
Bonnie Sweeten stole as much as $1 million from her employer (amounts vary in different reports) and claimed she and her daughter were kidnapped but they were found in a luxury suite at Disney World. She was convicted and sentenced to 8 years in prison. After she got out, an excavating firm then gave her a job as…wait for it… a bookkeeper. She stole from the company by writing company checks to herself and fraudulently using the company credit card. I swear you can’t make this stuff up.
