I'M Back!

Sorry for the break in my postings.  Writing books, re-writing my class at UConn, and having our web site and blog completely redesigned has distracted me from maintaining the blog posts.  The good news – I am back, and there has been plenty happening relating to fraud and financial malfeasance.  The bad news (for victims of these types of crimes), there has been plenty happening… 

A few months ago I was working on up to seven different concurrent cases involving embezzlement or thefts on one sort or another.  That’s a career record for us with simultaneous active investigations.  Arrests have been made in three of the cases (none of which made their way into the media), and four continue along a slow path of resolution.  In one case, although the elderly victim wasting away in a nursing home likely lost hundreds of thousands at the hands of her much younger relative, the police have yet to act upon this crime.  In their defense, it has only been since December when we brought them the information to initiate an investigation.  Unfortunately, this is not uncommon.  It hear all to frequently how much law enforcement, prosecutors and even judges dislike having to deal with financial crimes, and therefore, receive the least amount of attention, if any, causing long delays and even no action towards resolving the case.  One can only continue to emphasize the importance of investigating and prosecuting these financial crimes, striving to stem the growth trend in this area of crime.
