A Case Study: Disappearing Printer Ink

2/1/2021 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)


  • Brian Molloy, Chief of Investigations for the Office of the City Auditor, City of Austin
  • Michael Yamma, Senior Investigator for the Office of the City Auditor, City of Austin

Description: For close to a decade an Austin Public Library employee took advantage of his position with the City, his access to City credit cards, and the lack of oversight from his bosses. He ultimately stole approximately $1.5 million in printer toner and personal electronics. This webinar will present a case study of the fraud and waste investigation we conducted to identify what this employee stole, how he stole it, and who should have discovered this scheme. Attendees will learn useful investigative steps for asset misappropriation cases. In addition, we will cover proactive steps any organization can take to detect and prevent asset misappropriate.

About the Speaker(s):
