Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
“Nothing is enough to the man for whom enough is too little,” – Epicurus
Today, I have a very unique European Crime Divas – by unique I am referring to the position she held that provided the opportunity to cross into the world of crime and greed.
In the heart of London, the most unsusceptible Crime Diva Jessica Harper, 50, the head of the Fraud and Security department for the historical and prestige financial institution Llyods Banking Group was arrested and charged for allegedly stealing over $3.2 million (American).
Ms. Harper, a very unadorned looking woman, was in charge of the bank’s security digital unit. She earned over $90,000 (American), but during the height of the credit crunch from 2008 through 2011 and the bank’s bailout by the government she allegedly ran a scam via of submitting bank business invoices. (Not to herself – smart girl?) She has been charged with one count of fraud.
According to reports, she was not living a lavish lifestyle as most divas. She was low-key and was involved in charitable volunteer work. It was not indicated where the money went or was spent on. A neighbor was quoted saying, “I’d be shocked if she done something like that – she’s just not that type of person.” Interesting, obviously, people don’t understand that all types of people commit these white-collar crimes.
White-collar crime as I have mentioned is a world-wide problem and when someone in this position succumbs to the crime they are supposed to be working to stop, it really makes you think, “What is really going on here, and what can really be done about it?”
The enticement of obtaining illegal financial gain un-detective. This is the hook that induce white-collar criminals into committing crimes. The misleading thought that no one can see what they are doing, or will figure out what they are doing. It is this false sense that keeps them committing the crime and they continue like an addict. But as they say, all things come to an end, and the end of this road is prison. . . .
The mission of this site is to prevent professional, educated, and career-minded females from committing white-collar crimes; to educate, and confabulate with others who have an interest in this epic situation and who has a desire to make a difference.
