“In September of 2017, a woman by the name of Charlotte Pottorff pled guilty to embezzling $2.3 million over 10 years from Dura-Bilt Transmissions in Idaho Falls, ID. She had been an employee of the company – a trusted bookkeeper – since 1999. While extreme, her case is not unique; there are over 500 major embezzlement cases every year within the United Sates, and the vast majority of those are committed by long-time employees who generally fly under the radar because of their perceived character. And they are able to steal largely unsuspected: the average length of time for an embezzlement scheme lasts 4.6 years before they are caught.”
