In this special five-part podcast series, I interview John Gill, the Vice President for Education at the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). In this series, John discusses five well-known fraudsters; including what caused them to engage in fraud, the fraud scheme they employed and how they were caught. More significantly we tie this what compliance professionals need to have in place to detect and prevent corruption.  In this Episode 1, we discuss Nathan Mueller and the Fraud Triangle. Some of the highlights include:

  1. How does the Fraud Triangle help to explain Mueller’s fraud?
  2. How can everyday pressures lead to an employee engaging in fraud?
  3. How does a merger provide cover for a subsequent fraud?
  4. What led to Mueller’s downfall and being caught?
