David Miller looks like an average employee and because of that, he fits the profile of the average fraud perpetrator. White collar criminals look like everyone else in the business world, some are well liked and they seem to be ideal employees. They work long hours and never take vacation but they are most likely working on the constant struggle to conceal their fraud. He began to depend on the income to support his lifestyle and continued to try and pay back the money he had stolen from earlier frauds. How does he differ? Miller differed from the profile of the average fraud perpetrator because he assure the companies he defrauded that he will took responsibility for his actions and will pay back the money he had stolen. With this, the companies commonly let him out of the hook believing they will recover what they have lost. Miller came true to his words. However, to pay his previous obligations, he will resort to tricking another company. How did these characteristics make him difficult to detect? These characteristics made it difficult to detect Miller because his white collar criminal image was so identical to that of the general public, and he was trusted and liked by all of his employers. Since he works inside the company, he is aware of the company’s system and weakness. And with this, he managed to exploit it to his advantage without the risk of easy detection.
