A river is a force flowing as a result of the actions of nature. Fraud is a force flowing as a result of the intentional actions of someone. Unlike the fraudster, the river has no ulterior motive. Nevertheless, rivers and fraud both have their initiating source, but where? Finding the source of a specific river is a physical undertaking. Determining the source of a specific fraud is much more complex. Rivers do not choose to begin but fraudsters do. Where, and just as importantly, how, does fraud begin in the mind? An Endless Stream of Lies examines the origin, the coursing thereof and the ending of a river involving a unique fraud investigation. Like a river, this fraud has a source but just as importantly there are a sundry of tributaries contributing to the flow all waiting to be explored.

Before he was even old enough to drink, he had bank accounts, a Ferrari, a mansion, a multi-million dollar corporation, and a desperate little secret . . . it was all a lie. Most of us can't imagine life getting much worse than it got for Barry Minkow, the one-time Wall Street wiz kid who catapulted his company to stardom and success only to see it exposed as a $300-million fraud. Most of us can't imagine spending more than seven years in federal prison and coming out owing victims $26 million. Most of us can't imagine our careers changing from FBI target to FBI trainer, from CEO to senior pastor, from con man to con catcher. Or can we? We've all slipped up. We've all failed. Cleaning Up is Barry Minkow's comeback story-a powerful a tale of redemption and inspiration, of second chances and setting things right. More than a decade from defrauding investors, today, as cofounder of the Fraud Discovery Institute, he's uncovered over a billion dollars worth of investment scams.

Of the three elements in the interview process -- questioning, detecting deception and persuasion -- the last proves to be the most challenging and problematic. Utilizing a transcript of a successful persuasive interview, the text examines which communication dynamics must occur in order to influence the behavior of another person; and how those dynamics are incorporated into the interview process. The text provides a chapter by chapter delineation of the unfolding persuasion process. Included are various correlated practical exercises and application questions. Within the application exercises are contributions from the works of Shakespeare, Francis Bacon, Charles Dickens, Moses and Aristotle. The text is designed and targeted for use in academic and educational environments, as well as training settings. In the second edition, the text and participant workbook have been combined. The authors, as well as others utilizing the materials in training or academic environments, found the transitioning from the text to the workbook and back once more, resulted in a loss of continuity. Placing the practical exercises with the information provided serves to readily anchor the information to the application.

Too often investigators consider written statements, transcripts of interviews and interrogations, and letters as mere pieces of paper to be filed. They are only useful at face value — as simple records, sworn statements, archives. In this book, Rabon demonstrates that these files can be put to work and can mean much more if the investigator uses proven techniques to move beyond the archive.

It was the golden age of eBay. Optimistic bidders went online to the world's largest flea market in droves, ready to spend cash on everything from garden gnomes to Mercedes convertibles. Among them were art collectors willing to spend big money on unseen paintings, hoping to buy valuable pieces of art at below-market prices. EBay also attracted the occasional con artist unable to resist the temptation of abusing a system that prided itself on being "based on trust." Kenneth Walton -- once a lawyer bound by the ethics of his profession to uphold the law -- was seduced by just such a con artist and, eventually, became one himself. Ripped from the headlines of the New York Times, the first newspaper to break the story, Fake describes Walton's innocent beginnings as an online art-trading hobbyist and details the downward spiral of greed that ultimately led to his federal felony conviction. What started out as a satisfying exercise in reselling thrift store paintings for a profit in order to pay back student loans and mounting credit card debt soon became a fierce addiction to the subtle deception of luring unsuspecting bidders into overpaying for paintings of questionable origins. In a landscape peopled with colorful eccentrics hoping to score museum-quality paintings at bargain prices, Walton entered into a partnership with Ken Fetterman, an unslick (yet somehow very effective) con man. Over the course of eighteen months they managed to take in hundreds of thousands of dollars by selling forged paintings and bidding on their own auctions to drive up the prices. When their deception was discovered and made international headlines, Walton found himself stalked by reporters and federal agents while Fetterman went on the lam, sparking a nationwide FBI manhunt. His elaborate game of cat and mouse lasted nearly three years, until the feds caught up with him after a routine traffic violation and brought him to justice. In this sensational story of the seductive power of greed, Kenneth Walton breaks his silence for the first time and, in his own words, details the international scandal that forever changed the way eBay does business.

“A delightful read for anyone tantalized by the prospect of disappearing without a trace.” —Erik Larson, New York Times bestselling author of Dead Wake “Delivers all the lo-fi spy shenanigans and caught-red-handed schadenfreude you’re hoping for.” —NPR “A lively romp.” —The Boston Globe “Grim fun.” —The New York Times “Brilliant topic, absorbing book.” —The Seattle Times “The most literally escapist summer read you could hope for.” —The Paris Review Is it still possible to fake your own death in the twenty-first century? With six figures of student loan debt, Elizabeth Greenwood was tempted to find out. So off she sets on a darkly comic foray into the world of death fraud, where for $30,000 a consultant can make you disappear—but your suspicious insurance company might hire a private detective to dig up your coffin...only to find it filled with rocks. Greenwood tracks down a British man who staged a kayaking accident and then returned to live in his own house while all his neighbors thought he was dead. She takes a call from Michael Jackson (no, he’s not dead—or so her new acquaintances would have her believe), stalks message boards for people contemplating pseudocide, and gathers intel on black market morgues in the Philippines, where she may or may not obtain some fraudulent goodies of her own. Along the way, she learns that love is a much less common motive than money, and that making your death look like a drowning virtually guarantees that you’ll be caught. (Disappearing while hiking, however, is a way great to go.) Playing Dead is a charmingly bizarre investigation in the vein of Jon Ronson and Mary Roach into our all-too-human desire to escape from the lives we lead, and the men and women desperate enough to give up their lives—and their families—to start again.
