As internet use has increased, so has the various methods to satisfy this need to take what belongs to another. I often say that theft is getting that which one's hands have not earned.
In contracting with, or conducting seminars for businesses, Statement Analysis is used not only in internal investigations, but in the interview process and analysis of application questionnaires is able to show the Human Resource professional those who's motive is to obtain money not earned to the point that the Interviewer is informed of this fact and conducts the interview with this in mind, while not revealing to the applicant the knowledge.
What will the Interviewer find out?
If the applicant talks, the applicant will reveal himself or herself.
Many companies are surprised at just how many people steal and even more surprised at the methods. They spend large amounts of money on video surveillance and other techniques while missing out on many of the "new" methods of stealing. Just as they think they are "hi tech", they are taken by the old school greed, instead.
A company hires temps from a temp agency.
The young person was stocking a shelf when the store manager groped her. She cannot stop herself from crying and the company believes the store manager didn't do it, but cut a check to "pay for therapy" for the victim who is not only lying: but knew she was going to do this when they hired her.
Social Service professionals will often go "the extra mile" to help their clients obtain "services." We have seen under cover video of state employees showing illegally how to obtain tax payer funded welfare services even to the point of how to lie.
A new one?
Those with severe drug problems who cannot afford high priced successful in patient rehabilitation services are counseled to work for a company for a few months and claim that the stress drove them to having a drug problem putting the company on the hook for...$15,000 to $25,000.
There are those who will learn where the video camera ends and where it is safe to "fall" and cash in on the company.
Companies are amazed when they are shown "agenda driven" employees who reveal themselves in the application process, often before they even are interviewed. The interview will confirm the analysis.
When Dept of Justice said that 40% of the thieves planned it before or during the interview process, they were looking at common shrinkage, not the myriad of exploitation today. Not only does Statement Analysis identify these thieves before they get through the door, but will show a company how to interview the claimant, showing great sympathy for their suffering, while getting them to revealing their own fraudulent claims.
Go Fund Me
I personally like private giving. It is voluntary and it is sometimes a reflection of us at our "best."
It is also a hot bed for thieves, whether it be Pizza Guy in Utah, or Julie Baker decorating her Baltimore home, they will use anything, in particular, "victim status" to separate you from your money, and get their hands on money they have not earned.
Go Fund Me is not the problem; greed is the problem on the left hand, and lack of discernment is the problem on the right hand. We do not wish to become cynical towards the suffering of our fellow man, nor do we wish to be taken in fraud.
Emotions are often elicited to override logic. This is why one's wording is so important. In Ms. Baker's fraud, she appealed to strong anti-religious sentiment, which revealed her own hated, while claiming to be a victim of hatred, itself.
When her fraud was brought to light, the two themes of silence were imposed:
If you disagree, you have "hatred" (which is murder) motivating you, and you are irrationally afraid of something, therefore, no reasonable nor logical discussion will be engaged in.
These two are used to silence criticism, or even questioning of one's motive.
Commentators marveled that even after reading analysis, Ms. Baker was incapable of issuing a Reliable Denial.
Now comes the tragic shooting of a little boy to Go Fund Me with both parents seeking money their hands did not earn.
The mother of a murdered 9-year-old Chicago boy is fighting back against accusations that she used online donations meant for her son’s burial to purchase a new car.
Karla Lee, 26, admitted using the money donated through GoFundMe to buy the car, but said her son would have wanted her to be safe and a car helps, Fox32 reportedSaturday.
“Am I afraid for my life? 100 percent I’m afraid for my life,” she told the station.
Note the question first, "Am I afraid for my life?" as a likely response to a question.
Next, note the use of percentage.
Following public outrage, Lee said she used her own money that she had saved for months to make the purchase, according to the station.
She also lashed out at her critics in an expletive-filled rant on Instagram.
“This don’t make no sense,” she says in the 60-second video. “I am so tired of ya’ll social media and ya’ll Facebook people bashing me. Ya’ll don’t even know me. I was the best mother I was to my son.”
Please note that "best mother" is closely linked to child abuse and child neglect often indicating that not only have family members alleged abuse and/or neglect, but possible state intervention of the same.
Her son, Tyshawn Lee, was shot and killed Monday after being lured into an alley on the city’s south side in what police say was an “absolutely hateful” killing motivated by his father’s alleged gang affiliations.
Lee purchased a 2015 Chrysler 200, WLS-TV reported Sunday. Lee told the station she used her own money to make the down payment.
She told the station the trouble started when the dealership where she bought the car posted her purchase on Facebook without her knowledge. The post has been deleted.
More than $17,000 was raised in four days on a GoFundMe page created by a friend of Lee’s to “help Karla lay her son to rest.”
The online fundraiser was closed Sunday morning, DNAChicago reported.
In another bizarre twist, Tyshawn’s father apparently started another GoFundMe page seeking donations for funeral expenses, the website reported. The page was quickly taken down.
“I understand the mother of my son did wrong by that money, but what the news is not telling, that they are only paying for half the cost of everything," Wooh Gotti, an alias used by Tyshawn's dad Pierre Stokes, wrote, according to DNA.”They are blaming us so they don't have to pay the full cost of everything. She is in the wrong for doing what she did with the money for our son, just give me a chance to lay my son to rest the right way."
DNA reported that Stokes’ appeal sought $2,500 and the fundraising page also was selling Tyshawn memorial T-shirts for $25-$45.
A police spokesman told FoxNews.com Friday that Stokes potentially knows who killed his son, but has refused to cooperate with detectives.
A reward of $54,000 is being offered for information that leads to the boy’s killer or killers.
