SESSION DESCRIPTION
Money Makes The World Go Underground

In this talk Jeffrey will define money laundering – the three stages, the origins of the term money laundering (it has nothing to do, as many people think, with Al Capone and laundromats) and why money laundering matters, especially in the casino business. He will touch on the effects of casinos going cashless and digital currencies like bitcoin. Jeffrey will also talk about the insidious nature of fraud and why people in the casino business are prone to fall for it (he will get into his theory of fraud being a two-way street crime), why casinos offer fraudsters such an easy target, his “back door” theory of crime (that everyone has cameras on the front door and far too many businesses neglect the back door), how he revised Donald Cressey’s famous “fraud triangle” to make it a fraud square, the story of the 18th century philosopher whose 300 year old theory will change the risk exposure of theft and fraud in every casino, and how to detect casino employees who will steal.
