From the life fraud stories of Frank Abagnale in “Catch Me If You Can” to Bernie Madoff’s infamous Ponzi scheme, fraudsters use our blind spots to win our hearts, minds, and bank accounts. Could you recognize if you were being defrauded? What would you do? Jil York, a Certified Fraud Examiner, will relay her personal story of how she was defrauded on a large scale by a cleaver fraudster, who knew her well. We’ll explore the psychology of a fraudster and the Golden Leg of the Fraud Triangle, as well as how our personal “filters” control how we see a series of events, and why thinking logically can blind you to fraud.
