Jerri Williams, a former FBI special agent, shares insights into the world of fraud and economic crime. She discusses the anatomy of a Ponzi scheme, using the New Era Foundation case as an example. Williams explains how fraudsters manipulate victims and the psychology behind their actions. She also delves into other types of scams, such as advanced fee schemes and business-to-business telemarketing fraud. Williams highlights the importance of international cooperation in investigating and prosecuting fraud cases. She concludes by discussing the traits and motivations of fraudsters, as outlined in the fraud triangle: opportunity, pressure, and rationalization. In this conversation, Jerri Williams discusses the motivations behind fraud, the role of punishment in deterrence, the importance of staying apolitical in law enforcement, the biggest threats facing Americans and business owners, the need for a third political party, and her favorite roles as an FBI agent, podcaster, and author.
