Victimizing the Victim – A First For Me In Over 20 Years

Just when I thought I had seen close to everything, and the worse in people…

I recently finished an embezzlement case, and since the individual who handled all the financial aspects of this company for the retirement-aged owners was terminated for stealing, the owners turned to a well-known temporary agency to solicit help running their business.

Today I received the call I should have expected but never saw coming.  My client, the original victims of their office manager’s embezzlement, were back at the police station, filing a second complaint on a new matter.  Figure it out yet?

Unbelievable, the individual brought in from the temp agency has been embezzling from the company while helping them complete the investigation and implement internal controls to prevent such a theft from ever occurring again.  The individual purportedly has been writing checks to themself and forging the owners’ signatures – in a time when they have little to no funds due to the last embezzlement.

At a time where I am trying to become less cynical, how can the person brought in from a well-known agency to help retirement-aged owners recover from an embezzlement, stealing the little funds they had left to operate their business.

If the business closes, which is highly likely given their dire cash situation, what do we tell all the folks loosing their jobs, let alone the owners loosing their business?

The time is long overdue for the courts to lock folks like this up.

Beyond the fact that someone victimized the victim, another point is to be sure that regardless of who you hire, whether directly as an employee or through a placement agency, such as a temp service, be sure to do due diligence on anyone coming into your business or handling your finances. Don’t rely on the procedures of others, as you may find they didn;t do any due diligence procedures at all on the individual you are considering to bring into your business.

    • You know I disagree. I may be a hold out, but I still believe right is right, and there is no grey. Rationalization thrives in our society. It is frustrating, and at times seems it would be less stressful if I simply went along. I am just not wired that way 🙂
