During the closing session of the 32nd Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference, John Gill, vice president - education at the ACFE, spoke with convicted fraudster* Brett Johnson, who shared stories from his life as a cybercriminal.
“You never have to face your victim,” he said, when asked why he was drawn to cybercrime in particular. “You can compartmentalize your online life. Online I do all this stuff, but in real life I am a good guy.”
*The ACFE does not compensate convicted fraudsters.
