In this episode, podcast host Jerri Williams interviews one of her former subjects, Karl LNU (last name unknown - or in this case unused). Karl was investigated, charged and convicted of bribing corrupt purchasing agents to approve invoices for over-priced and inferior lighting and maintenance supplies. The scam was operated by phone. Karl, his business partner, and their employees made telemarketing calls to unsuspecting businesses throughout the United States and ripped them off with the help of their own greedy employees. Karl pled guilty and served time for fraud, but his sentence was reduced significantly based on his decision to become a cooperating witness, assisting a multi-agency Group II undercover investigation targeting the business-to-business telemarketing fraud industry in the Philadelphia area. The economic crime case resulted in 16 search warrants and 25 convictions.
