Retired agent Victor E. Hartman served the FBI for 25 years with most of his time overseeing complex white-collar crime cases. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Hartman reflects on the mindset of the white-collar crime defendant. He takes us through the three types of fraud – misappropriation of assets, corruption, and financial statement fraud. Hartman makes the distinction of a predatory fraudster versus situational fraudster by comparing the Enron and WorldCom cases. Hartman played a leadership role in the early phases of both investigations.
